Cystic Acnes! Please help Page 4 of 4

Murthy, grk2006,
I see obsession alright, but not as much from Joe, than as from you. Stop being jack asses and find something more constructive to do with your time. You come across as immature and more than ridiculous. Have you ever heard the statement, 'get a life!'

Stop sporting all of your personal issues on this site, people are here for help, not wanting to read through all of your vendetta behavior. What a huge waste of time. Honestly, why would you bother? There must be something wrong upstairs.

Hi, I'm just popping in to see how you are and say hi. I've been very busy and have not much time lately. I wanted to answer one of your previous questions, and that was if arnica is an addicting medicine. I can't say for 100%, but I don't believe that homeopathic medicine has any addicting properties. I believe that the guy above that said he was an arnica baby, is just an arnica person, meaning that it may very well be his constitutional remedy.

I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing constipation. I'm not sure, but if you believe that it's the silicea that is causing it, then just skip a few doses. The silicea is good for clearing out the acne and also for scars. If you feel that your acne is cleared and you are not working on healing any scars, then you can just continue the arnica. It's up to you. I haven't tried the silicea yet, but I plan on it in the near future, as I want to help some of my scars to heal.

Stick with this and you'll eventually find the answers you are looking for.

I haven't checked out you new thread yet, but I will.

I hope the holidays find you and your family well.
Best wishes,

Hello All,

I am at such a loss. As like many of the posts I've read, I have suffered from moderate acne since i was in middle school.

I am now 22 years old and have the worst cyctic acne ever. I recently suffered a tramatic event, my father figure passed away. Could this have anything to do with my acne outbreak? My life is misrable because of my recent tragedies and my acne. I feel awful and have no motivation to continue on with my life like this. I am desperate.

My cysts are on my cheeks and occasionally my jawline. They take atleast three weeks if not more to subside and then i am left with deep dark red scars and indentations in my skin.

How do I end this misery?!! Please help

Hi BabiKay,
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It is certainly true that your emotions can cause an outbreak, just as hormones, etc. Have you tried the arnica and silica? You probably have an underlying problem, possibly even parasites. Don't let that scare you, a good majority of us have them. They can just be worse for some more than others. A good brand of colon cleanse would help with that. You should be taking a probiotic regularly and you should be putting up your history here by form of questionaire.
Fill out this questionaire and post it here. You may also want to go to homeopathy and more and do the same (another site, less congested.) Get some feedback and go with your intuition. Homeopathy can seem quite complicated, but there are allot of people who have done their homework. Don't give up, it may take some time before you see results and you may even have to try various remedies until you find one that works. I suffer from the same problems as you. My skin was looking pretty good, but I've been under allot of stress lately and I've broken out again, now with dry flaking patches on my chin as well.
At the other site I mentioned, you can also read up on constitutional remedies and see if maybe you can find yours and use it after getting your acne under control.

Good luck and feel free to write back.

Fill this out and post it:

Very important...mentals first and the physical later...that is a rule in homeopathy...so always remember to give your mental (mind) symptoms along with physical symptoms.....like mind -depressed, frequent change of moods, angry when contradicted, depression due to business failure, depression due to broken love affair, cannot get over a bereavement in the family, throwing objects at others when in an angry rage, suppression of insults, suppression of sexual desire etc etc etc.

I am a 25 year old American male (with a typical western diet).

For 7 years, beginning my senior year of high school, spanning through 4 years of college, and then 2 years after graduation (into the workforce), I suffered from moderate to severe Cystic Acne. In those 7 years, I would suffer from -- on average -- between 1-3 cysts on my face (the T zone) at all times, around 1/2 inch in diameter. I was often embarrassed to engage in my social life and was afraid to make future plans because I was consistently afraid of what my face would look like.

The research and methods I have covered within the past 7 years to prevent, mask, and cure Cystic Acne have been extensive and thorough. I began my journey with the basic prevention and treatment methods such as over-the-counter facial washes and creams like Proactiv's 3 step process (and sulfur mask) and Neutrogena's oil eliminating astringent.

After seeing little success with those, I started seeing a Dermatologist -- 1 year later. I saw her for 4 years, and in that time span she cycled me through 8 different antibiotics and 6 separate and expensive topical creams. The antibiotics worked for the first few months, and then I began to build an immunity to the drugs (hence, the cycling). After 4 years on antibiotics, they had little to no effect on my acne, but I DID have a fairly regular case of diarrhea.

I reached my breaking point when I was taking the strongest antibiotics available, twice per day, and not being able to eat 2 hours before and 2 hours after swallowing the pills, resulting in 8 hours per day without being able to eat. I was nauseous, lightheaded, and weak most of the day.

At that point, the antibiotics were making me sick, and the topical creams were increasing the redness and shininess of my cysts, so I started researching unorthodox treatments online after refusing to start Accutane and leaving my Dermatologist (and Primary Care Physician).

Here is a list of some of the unorthodox treatments I tried, each for 2-3 months at a time: Apple Cider vinegar shots (twice/day), facial steamer (once/day; evolved into once/week), Blue Light (30 mins every day; evolved into 30 twice/week), tanning (once/week), sauna (once/week), breathing techniques (20 times/day *thought cysts could have been from a lack of oxygen*), anti-depression pills (once/day *thought cysts could have been from stress*), Advil/Ibuprofen mask directly on cysts (once/day; slept with it on), Zeno Hot Spot (once/day), Lancet for popping cysts (every cyst)

After seeing no improvements with online forum advice, I turned to supplements.

Here is a list of all the supplement changes I made: Ginkgo Biloba (twice/day), Cayenne Pepper (once/day), Vitamin A (twice/day), Omega 3 (twice/day), Vitamin D (once/day), Vitamin E (once/day), Niacin (once/day)

I still didn't see any improvements! Therefore, I turned to the last place I knew -- my diet. For 2 years I grew and juiced my own Wheatgrass (2oz/day). No improvements. I knew that I was somewhat lactose intolerant, as 85% of humans are, so I cut out dairy. That showed more improvement than any of the previously mentioned treatment methods. However, I was still having large cysts from time to time, and I knew I didn't cure myself yet.

After I watched the Netflix documentary on juicing, titled, 'Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead,' where two men not only lose hundreds of pounds in a few months, but cured a supposedly incurable auto-immune disease at the same time, I became curious if it could have the same benefits when applied to cystic acne.

With nothing to lose, I went out to my local bargain store and purchased a cheap, $19.99 juicer (not blender). I started mixing together the following 'organic' produce in each drink: 1. One basic green vegetable (Kale/Bok Choi/Chards/Spinach) 2. One rind fruit (Oranges/Tangerines/Grapefruit) 3. One Apple (preferably green) 4. One Carrot 5. One Cucumber (half if it's large) 6. One Lemon (half if it's large) 7. Small clove of Garlic 8. Small piece of Ginger.

I started doing this 5 months ago for breakfast (either as a replacement or an addition to what I normally eat). Not only did it free me from all of my cysts, but my skin has grown accustom to a healthy glow and I feel more energized than ever before.

I'm not sure if it was the 'micro-nutrients' or something else, but juicing has completely cured my skin, and therefore my social life as well.

I'm no doctor, but as a past victim of cystic acne, I would highly recommend juicing to anyone who has been told by a doctor that: 'Only time can cure your cystic acne;' 'Cystic Acne is genetic;' 'Cystic Acne is incurable.'

Doctors are not trained in nutritional healing or cures, nor are they monetarily motivated to recommend something like juicing. After jumping through the same hopeless hoops that many of you have done, I have found that juicing (and cutting back on dairy) to be the ONLY cure for cystic acne that has worked for me.

The best part about juicing is that it's completely safe, and much cheaper than prescription drugs and creams. If any of you decide to try it as well, I would suggest replacing one of your 3 daily meals with a juice. If you see no improvements within the next week, I would suggest juicing 3 times per day.

The only side effects I have stumbled across in my adventures with juicing are weight loss, more energy, a faster healing cycle, and a stronger immune system.

I wouldn't wish Cystic Acne on my worst enemy, and I hope that raw fruit/vegetable juicing works its wonders on your face, as it has so efficiently with mine. Good luck and get clear fast!!! :)

Thank you for recording your success in ridding yourself of your Cystic Acne which would have caused you so much distress and which cannot be cured by drugs.

You may like to know that I have CURED many hundreds, perhaps Thousands of boys and girls who presented this common ailment in they teenage years. Many patients have reported that they noticed the first signs of relief on the third day when their acne seemed to dry up and in a week they were CURED.

I shall copy my default therapy for the treatment of Acne below:

The remedy that has helped many is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily and also applied directly on the face as often as is possible to keep the lesions damp.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

Please post your response to the Arnica therapy in a week.
