There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don’t give up!

You can’t go wrong with washing your face… Of course, this doesn’t always help those severe cases.

The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:

I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

I recommend a good, non-comedogenic facewash, so it won’t cause any other breakouts.

Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts. Again, use non-comedogenic products.

Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
- Salicylic Acid
- Benzoyl Peroxide

Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

Salicylic Acid – Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.

Benzoyl Peroxide – Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.

Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods…


I prefer to use natural products myself. Tea Tree oil has been proven to work as well as Benzoyl Peroxide with less side effects. Although it takes longer to show results. It isn’t for everyone!

Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here’s the link for that.. Http://

Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!


Rubbing Alcohol… Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
* This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin… Use in moderation and moisturize often.

To even skin tone and also fight acne I use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion at 10% strength, 3 times a week. It also helps with wrinkles(:

A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn’t easy. Especially when you’re a kid and your parents call the shots on the food! Here’s a link for tips on dieting to improve skin. Http://

Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.
Always remember to use non-comedogenic products.

* If you don’t moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

Finally, NEVER touch your face. It’s probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples… If you pop them, it will make them spread, or even get infected. I don’t advise popping them… But if you really must… Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. Http://

Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It’s normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)

Curing Bipolar Disorder

‘They {the medical establishment} hate that word {cure}, like the devil hates holy water’
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife
Intestinal Dysbiosis/Candida Overgrowth

‘All diseases begin in the gut’ Hippocrates 460-370BC

Mental illness starts not in the Brain but the Gut. Do you have digestive problems like colic, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, and malnourishment {are you very skinny and find it difficult to put on weight?}, and do you have a white/yellow-coating on your tongue? Do you suffer from frequent headaches, mood swings, depression, fatigue, and other symptoms related to ‘candida overgrowth?’

Read ‘Gut And Psychology Syndrome’ By. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, NMedSci{neurology}, MMedSci{nutrition}
This doctor, who has a clinic in Cambridge for treating mental illnesses like Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Bipolar Disorder. Her son suffered from Autism, she found the cure and the root cause, and believes that all mental illness can be cured.

I found that my bipolar disorder was caused or worsened by Candida overgrowth or Candida Related Complex. You should consult a Naturopathic Doctor {not a homeopath, they’re different}, a Nutritionist that has treated Bipolar disorder before, and an orthomolecular medicine doctor.

Candida thrive on sugar, so Cut out all sugar, unstable/imbalanced blood sugar levels can cause depression and hyperactivity, replace table sugar with Xylitol {much more healthier and beneficial and tastes the same in the same portions! You wont notice too much of a difference, don’t go near NutraSweet or Aspartame, monosodium glutamate – avoid like the plague}.Cut out stimulants like caffeine, and soda soft drinks.

S. Boulardii is a good probiotic that flushes out candida from the body. Look into Kefir Making, this home-made free probiotic drink in itself will bring you much improvement in your mental health and well being, all you need is Kefir Grains to get started, google ‘Kefir Making’ and look at Doms Kefir Making website, it tells you everything you want/need to know.

Fasting & Detoxification

Do a detox fast a 3-day apple fast, only red/golden delicious apples, and fresh water, along with coffee enema’s, this is all stated in ‘Cure your acne in 3 days’ but it works great for bipolar disorder, most BP’s have bad skin according to one conventional website i was reading. This will help rid your body of the accumulated toxins affecting your brain, and kill a lot of Candida Yeast.

See the outlined 3-day fast here, although for acne, it will work for bipolar disorder also:;_ylt=ApSkpEDAvDkxo2PRN3DFZ7Tty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080709071408AAIc9x0&show=7#profile-info-D0W5kyt1aa

Recent studies have shown that Prozac {a popular antidepressant} has anti-fungal/candida properties, and inhibits its growth, this is due to Serotonin. Further, Sodium Valporate {used as a mood stabiliser} has been shown to stop the growth of harmful pathogenic microorganisms/worms in the gut. This is very interesting findings, as it supports that mental illness is due to problems in the gut or intestinal dysbiosis.

Go on the anti-candida diet. Source: ‘The Yeast Connection’ Book

Drink Alkali water, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to every litre of purified water you drink, this will prevent disease and reduce the growth of Candida. Source: Mr X Acne e-book

Look also into Gerson Therapy/Juicing, this has cured many diseases, not just cancer, it will help with mental illness. But start this after you have rid yourself of candida.
Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies

-Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega 3 supplements or Carlson’s Brand 2-3g per day has been shown in scientific studies to reduce manic-depression significantly. Strictly, the brands mentioned as they are pure pharmaceutical grade, and are used in clinical trials, plus the Carlson’s Brand has added fat-soluble vitamins.
Google it to see the research with omega 3 and its remarkable effects on mental illness, yet more evidence that mental illness is due to nutritional deficiencies, which has been aggravated by Candida overgrowth/Intestinal Dysbiosis.

-EM Power Plus + by TrueHope, has been shown to be very effective, look at the testimonies on mcmillans BiPolar website. Personally i have not used this, as my current nutrition programs works great.

-A multivitamin/ mineral supplement in a bioavailable form, E.g . Higher Nature brand

SAMe – 400mg per day, this will boost your energy levels. And has been called the ‘instant antidepressant’, please have the histamine blood test done with the help of a mental-health orientated nutritionist, before taking this. If you are high-histamine {google it}, you will need to take methionine 1000-2000mg per day.

Getting to the ‘Cause’ of mental illness

Get blood tests, to test for:

- Histamine {high histamine is the cause of many bipolar type symptoms, highly recommend this test}

-Nutritional deficiencies/Nutritional profile.

- Adrenal exhaustion,

- Homocysteine,

- Pyroluria,

- Allergies, Allergies to certain foods can cause psychological problmes/mental instability, the most common offenders are Milk, Gluten, Egg, in that order, try eliminating each one for atleast 72hours and see how you feel.

- Candida Comprehensive Stool test, or D-Mannitol Urine Test {best and most accurate, bu hard to find a lab/scientist that does this, as its new}

- Thyroid disorders, including Wilson’s Thyroid disorder, although this involves monitoring youe body temperature immediately on waking, I think it should be above 97.5F, I am not sure, check this first/research.

-heavy metal toxicity, Ever heard some on say his as ‘Mad as a Shoe Maker’, well shoe makers used to use harmful chemicals like mercury, lead which made them go mad.

Your nutritionist can arrange these test through a local lab, or you could…, Biolab in London does this.

The Cure for Mental illness was Found Decades Ago!!!

Read Carl Pfeiffer’s PhD book ‘Nutrition and Mental Illness’, he was a pioneer with orthomolecular medicine and cured many people of bipolar disorder.
The Brain Bio Centre in London continues his work, as does the one in Princeton US, although it is very expensive. And in my opinion you can recover and save the money if you read and search for the knowledge.

Dr. Carl Pfieffer MD PhD cured bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, OCD and many other mental illnesses, 30 years ago, he used mega doses of bitamins/mineral to cure the patient, he claimed Schizophrenics had a genetic predisposition to be dificient of niacin. And Bipolars were High Histamine, which can be reduced by taking Vitamin C 1000 – 2000mg as Magnesium Ascorbate and L-Methionine amino acid supplement.

Exercise as much as you can! Especially in the morning, 30mins per day minimum, or Yoga, swimming, meditation, do something relaxing.

Take Coenzyme Q10 30mg to boost energy levels, when you feel tired, also SAMe.

Knowledge is Power

Watch the videos on, type in ‘psychetruth’ and watch the ‘Nutrition by Natalie’ videos especially.

Take 5HTP to boost the feel good serotonin levels, and melatonin at night if you are having sleep problems. Since the circadian clock of bipolar in usually out of synch. If this is the case, watch the sunrise, and set, this will help synchronise your clock and sleep patterns to normality.

Why does my Doctor/Psychiatrist not know this?

Conventional medicine is crap at treating mental illness, alternative medicine has the answers. Just try it out first, regardless of what your Dr. Will tell you. Just try it.

Psychiatrists make a lot of money from chronic life long mental illnesses, which they claim is genetic and incurable, which is a load of BS. Further drug companies make a lot of money from you; since most mental illness cannot be cured {according to the Doctors, since they are merely repeating what they learnt at med school} you have to stay on medication for a life-time {as maintenance}

Psychiatrists examine mental illness from various angles, although they are helpful, they do not address the cause of chronic mental illnesses like BP disorder. Psychiatrists will look at genetics, childhood experiences, and psychological influences, the last thing they will consider looking at is your digestive system. Strange that, since medical history gives plenty of examples where severe psychiatric conditions were cured simply by ‘cleaning out’ the patients gut.

Unfortunetly Dr. Carl Pfieffer MD PhD could not afford the expensive $100M+ clinical trials demanded by conventional medicine, as ‘evidence’, so his work is ignored by doctors, but accepted by naturopaths, nutritionists and herbalists.

Renowned Japanese Professor Kazudzo Nishi, estimates that 1 in 10 psychiatric conditions are due to self-intoxificiation coming from the gut, the odds are muh higher for the westerner, due to poor diet, abundant use of antibiotics/lack of probiotics in diet/fermented food.
