Acne Diet and The Money Factor: You Can't Sell a Healthy Diet
Inquire from medical doctor if there is a connection between diet and acne and just about all of them will claim there is none. Quoting from the Journal of the American Medical Association: "Diet plays no role in acne treatment in most patientsâ¬Â¦even large amounts of certain foods have not clinically exacerbated acne".
With years of medical education and clinical experience behind these assertions, how can we the simple folks who suffer from acne overcome these statements and think otherwise? The answer is: doubt. Doubt, if its stays in the confinement of reason, can open many doors otherwise will stay shut forever. Believe it or not, doubt can modify reality. Doubt can cure your acne and doubt can even save your life.
Fact is, innumerable acne sufferers have reported that their acne seemed to get worse when they consumed certain foods and saw striking positive change over their acne state when they Got rid of the same foods from their diet and when particular foods with specific nutritional value were merged into their diet.
So why do dermatologists so stubbornly posit that diet does not cause acne? The answer: you can't make a profit propagating a healthy diet. At least not as much money as you could make by selling drugs and over the counters. There is a huge pressure upon doctors coming from the drug and pharmaceutical companies to recommend expensive medications and lotions that create dependence. The truth is, that your doctor is in a way, a captive by the trillion dollar drug companies. Did you know that the drug companies, who have no interest in producing something that they cannot control financially, sponsor most medical schools?
The right diet, although not a cure by itself, can, in many cases, dramatically reduce inflammation and even totally clear one's acne (if you're one of the fortunate ones who's acne is triggered by allergic response to food). Promoting a clear skin diet simply means less profits for the drug and pharmaceutical companies.
The fact is that customary medications will never cure your acne, plainly because they are pre-designed NOT to fix the internal cause of acne. They are pre-designed to deal with the external symptoms of a disease as they create more and more dependency and more dependency means making more money all at our cost and lack of knowledge.
The Hypothesis That Diet Doesn't Bring About Acne Is A Myth
The dogmatic theory that diet does not cause acne and that acne is merely an incurable genetic disorder was founded upon two dated researches published in 1969 and 1971 that were aimed at studying the relation between diet and acne.
These studies were the foundation of the â¬Ëacne symptoms treatment strategy', in other words, because acne is a genetic disease that cannot be stopped, the only way to deal with acne would be to tackle its symptoms (bacteria, inflammation, puss, redness, greasiness), by using creams, antibiotics, taking prescription drugs and over the counters.
Surprisingly enough, years after the above studies were publicized, clinical attempts and in depth researches experimenting the acne diet link have discovered that the studies from 1969 and 1971 had came to the false conclusions and were in fact seriously flawed.
Modern studies have clearly found a substantial connection between diet and acne. It appears that the wrong diet is now considered to be one of the prominent acne contributing factors that can negatively affect hormonal regulation and the natural activity of toxic removal, which can seriously one's existing acne.
Diet Molds Who You Are (Including Your Acne)
In the same way that crashing waves shape beach cliffs and just like the wind shapes the canyon walls, slowly and methodically over time, so does eating shapes and effects our physic, our internal system, our physical and mental being, from the organ down to the cellular level.
The idea that an object foreign to our body that is inserted by the food that we eat, has no outcome on us, or has no impact on chronic conditions such as acne is illogical. Diet is the original thing that impacts and shapes who we are.
Diet has cumulative effect on our bodies, and that includes our skin state and acne, which is a manifestation of a chronic internal trouble slowly molded and built by the improper daily dietary choices over the years.
Acne Diet and The Kitavan Islanders
While in the U.S, more than 80% of teenagers between 16 and 18 have acne and more than 17 million Americans suffer from some form of acne, there is an engrossing evidence that native people that live and eat in traditionalistic ways, have significantly lower to no occurrences of acne.
In 2002, Dr. Cordain and his colleagues publicized a landmark study that examined 300 people living in the Kitavan Islands off the coast of Papua New Guinea that revealed that none of the islanders had even one blemish on his or her face. Similar to the Kitavans, no instance of acne had been observed when similar experiment had been carried out upon the South American Indians called the Ache, residing in a remote jungle in eastern Paraguay.
The natives of Kitavan and the South American Indians had no access to the current over the counters, topical creams or conventional acne medications and they had no dermatologist to consult with. The only vast difference between them and American or European citizens is their diet.
Acne Diet and Sugar: The Sweet Poison
Aside from the fact that sugar is a 100% pure chemical with no nutritional worth, modern findings have distinctly shown a relation between the ingestion of sugar and the aggravation of acne.
When you consume any kind of processed carbohydrates (white sugar, white flour, white rice) here's what happens: right after you insert that 'sweet poison't into your body, it speedily spikes up your blood sugar levels. Your body needs to bring those levels down so it secrets a surge of insulin, other male hormones and an insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1. The excretion of these hormones overwhelms your liver and your internal system in general. The male hormones encourage the skin to release large amounts of sebum oil: The greasy substance that encourages the p.acne bacteria to grow, resulting in the exacerbation of your acne.
Acne Diet and Dairy Products: Got Milk? Got Acne
If you thought sugar could exacerbate your acne, here's another major nutritional player in the formation of acne: behold the miracles of milk. Milk (all dairy products included) is the most harmful, mucus forming, allergenic and acne exacerbating food you can find. Surprised? I thought so. After years of unfailing brainwashing by the media, who can accuse us for thinking milk is good for strong bones and healthy teeth? The truth is: every sip of milk contains 59 different intense hormones, (which trigger the hyper-production of sebum oil resulting in more acne), saturated animal fat, steroid hormones, dead white blood cells, and cow pus in abundance!
Did you know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) endorses 750 million pus cells in every liter of milk (about two pounds) produced in America? Think about it, the next time you pop a pimple.
Scientific findings already point the finger at milk as one of the pessimal acne aggravating foods: "As pointed out by Dr. Jerome Fisher, 'About 80 percent of cows that are giving milk are pregnant and are throwing off hormones continuously.' Progesterone breaks down into androgens, which have been implicated as a factor in the development of acne...Dr. Fisher observed that his teenage acne patients improved as soon as the milk drinking stopped."
If there's one component you should take off from your diet in the quest for clear skin make it this one. Not only will you see a straightaway betterment over your acne, you'll feel a huge burden has been raised from your body. If you worry about calcium intake, don't! Milk being acidic forming food creates a leeching effect where calcium is taken from your bones to balance the acidity. Milk actually robs your body from its calcium resources. Green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds are not only first-class sources of calcium they also have the powers to help you combat your acne symptoms.
Diet Is Only One of The Factors That Cause Acne
Dairy products and sugar are not the only acne exacerbating foods. The two above cannot sum up the list of western made acne triggering foods. There are various foods you should distinctly stay away from if you ever wish to clear your acne. The good news is that there are scores of other foods such as essential fatty acids that are not only excellent for your skin, they can actually help you clear your acne, by re-balancing your body and promoting to an acne-free environment.
The proper nutrition performs an important part in the complex process of acne formation. When doctors assert there is no connection between diet and acne because certain individuals can eat specific foods and get acne while others eat the same foods and don't, these doctors have failed to realize that there are several factors involved in the formation and aggravation of acne and diet is only ONE of them.
The Final Verdict On The Acne Diet Connection: How To Finally Overcome Your Acne Challenge
Acne is a complex condition that is triggered by various underlying factors. The only way to knock off your acne condition is to take on all these acne-contributing factors-holistically. Since the improper diet is only one of these acne-triggering factors, in most cases no special diet can cure acne.
There is a however, a tight connection between diet and acne formation. Dietary factors can trigger and exacerbate your existing acne. Avoiding the wrong foods such as milk, sugar and hydrogenated oils, and eating cleansing and hormonal balancing foods such as green leafy vegetables and essential fatty acids, can help your skin heal itself from the inside out and dramatically reduce your acne symptoms.
There are also various fundamental dietary principals that you must know and follow if you ever want to cure your acne for good.
