Bad Acne

Posted by Harry (NY, NY) on 04/02/2007

is it ok to peroxide with a (post braces) plate- metal wire over back of 6 bottom teeth only if so, what way would be best, inhale, drink, could i inhale via nose to avoid contact with wire, also i could rinse mouth with white tea after (antioxidant) to stop negitive affect, i have tried everything else for BAD acne (nothing seems to work) ( also tried applying peroxide topically-no result)

Dear Harry:

For a bad acne, the body antioxidants are low, zinc is low, and sometimes oily foods and sugar foods are the problem. The oils get oxidized because the body's antioxidants are low. Rosemary oil is the best antioxidants, taken several drops a day. Peppermint oil applied to the acne helps on topical application.

Zinc acetate, or zinc gluconate 50 mg. taken for a couple of days, such as 4-5 days out of a week for only one week should raise that level and you can discontinue. Vitamin C sodium ascorbate 1000 mg, and vitamin E 400 i.u. helps. The rough clue for zinc deficiency, is oily skin.

If peroxide is taken internally, drink them quickly the peroxide won't degrade as quickly due to dental work, and metal wires and should detoxify whatever chemical toxins that is causing the oxidation.

Finally some coriander should help remove the heavy metal buildup which is a long term cause of acne. Just remember that the oils get hardened from oxidation because the body's antioxidant is low, and the immunity is low.

It takes awhile for adult acne to reduce, with about 1 month's time being average. Most people think it can be relieved within days, but those are true for just teenagers. Adult acne is different. In case of a woman, the common cause were due to excess perfume use and it takes more than a month of discontinued perfume and stir fried, and fried foods to notice improvement. It seems people who eat beans, with high oxalates, seemed to increase acne. To reduce these oxalates, and calcium that clogs taking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day (men dose) in 1/2 glass of water further reduce serum calcium, but adding some 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid also helps in removal of other metals causing the oxidation of oils.

Oil pulling may help reduce the metal load if done after brushing the teeth and do for at least a couple of minutes of swishing in the mouth.

Lipid oxidation of body oils seemed to be initiated from fried foods and chemical contaminants, acidosis, and high heavy metals.
