Hi Ted, I am a 42 year old african-american woman and have been battling acne since the age of 15. I have read and tried many of the acne cures posted on this site. I drink the ACV, baking soda, and water three times daily. I have been doing this for about a month now, and have noticed how smooth my skin is all over my body. At my local health food store, I bought Herpanacine supplements that contain antioxidants. I am noticing some results, however, I have dark spots from old blemishes that will not budge. I do have a bleaching cream, but I think after a while my skin becomes immune to skin products that I've used before. Are there any natural remedies that you can suggest that would fade away dark spots? Do I need to detox or what?
My daughter (10 years old) has always been dealing with hair loss from the back of her head, just below the crown, and now around to the right side of her head. She does have eczema, but over the years it seems to be subsiding. She has had scalp infections over the years, and even that seems to be subsiding. With her scalp infections, I just kept her hair braided and did nothing but use a mild shampoo, because whatever her pediatrician told me to use, just caused her scalp to be irritated. I think she's growing out of it. She's never completely bald, but her hair breaks and thins out. Lately, I've been doing the 1:10 ACV, Hydrogen Peroxide, and water as a shampoo, and following up with tea tree, and lavender oils at night. Her hair is very shiny , and since it has only been a week so far, I haven't really seen any hair growth. I made the lemon, baking soda, and water drink, and she absolutely hated it. Is there an alternative that you can suggest? I also noticed your suggestion to another person on this site about maybe eliminating milk. My daughter loves chocolate milk, should I do away with it? Thanks so much for your time, and I truly appreciate you sharing your knowledge with the world.
