Acne Prevention for Kids and Teens

Posted by Mom (Anonymous) on 01/12/2012

Ted. I was wondering if u could advise regarding acne prevention for kids and teens. Maybe if you could help out with a regimen? That would be greatly appreciated as this is my main concern.

As for myself, when reading your posts, certain things are recurrent: acv, bicarbonate, lecithin granules, zinc, hydrogen peroxide. I might have missed out on something here. How do we need to take these supplements in battling resilient acne? I am presently on an anti-candida detox since over a month and am wondering if I will never be able to eat fruit or have a slice of cake from time to time...

Please advise. Many many thanks for your help and patience.

Your main emphasis probably should be to take chromium to get the sugar down. I prefer 1000 mcg a day of chromium, in form of chromium polynicotinate. The B3 is required to relax and therefore stabilize the hormones. Niacinamide is taken in the evening at 500 mg. Zinc maybe required, in form of zinc gluconate, 25 mg for two or three days and then once a week. There is evidence from my files that getting the zinc up is a problem. The problem stems from the fact that fillers block their absorption, such as calcium is one, perhaps magnesium stearate. Do not take accutane or any form of this, it causes hair loss and long term problems. While it may cure one condition it creates a whole sets of incurable issues and hair loss is just one problem I have to treat. N Acetyl Cysteine is good and it used for blood sugar control and other things, such as glutathione, which increases antioxidant. You have to get non-effervescent kind preferably capsule form being the safest, as supplement company tend to add aspartame and make it worse. The dose is 500 mg I used is two times a day. This is the main regimen but two important fact, no sugar and no vegetable oils of any kind, especially polyunsaturated, they clog the pores.
