Why do you say it's not natural at all? Turpentine is just pine essential oil. Not harmful if done right. Even water is toxic in too much quantity. The best stuff is from Diamond G Forest Products, 100% pure and organic. I use a cap full to bath in along with Epsom Salts . Turpentine has been used for thousands of years to cure parasites, fungus and a host of other ailments. A little research will indicate it's history as a medicinal product, it even used to in vicks vapor rub. The fear mongering around turpentine use is all political, big pharma doesn't want the word to get out. Can it be dangerous? Sure, but so can crossing the street. Do your own research and decide.
My nutritionist recommended this. Everyone always says it is the vitamin A. But that may only be part of the picture. According to the Book The Truth About Beauty, the author suggests that the phospholipids in the egg yolk repair the SEBUM LAYER of your skin which is damaged by chlorinated water, cleansers and acne products. I have adult acne and was really scared to try it but I have a delicate health condition and can no longer put anything on my face that I would not actually EAT (no joke, my body is really sensitive). I am using it once a week and my skin is looking better I will try to remember to report back here. I also only wash with water, "tone" with spring water on a cotton pad, and finish with a linoleic acid oil such as hemp or grapeseed oil (no vitamin E added) this also helps clear my pores (Linoleic acid oils make sebum more "flowy" and less sticky. I hope this helps someone. Acne sucks
I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms but trust me it can get better! Just believe you will get well. First NEVER eat SOY - it is a major hormonal disruptor. You can have severe acne alone just from soy especially soy milk! I would strongly suggest trying the paleo diet and eliminate all major food allergens - Gluten, SOY, ALL grains, pulses, eggs, Milk and I would really restrict my fruit intake because you are probably dealing with a systemic Candida Infection - Olive leaf extract is good for this and Candex enzyme. I would take HCL and digestive enzymes to help break down your food. Make sure you are eliminating correctly and add gentle colon cleansing to your regime - but don't do that constantly as it will make matters worse. As soon as i stopped eating dairy, soy and grain - my cystic acne went away. I have PCOS and hypo-thyroid. Also have your hormones checked properly to include cortisol (AM and PM) Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-s, TSH, T3, T4. Hope this helps.
My son had molluscum when he was younger. It started out with just a couple bumps and our doctor told us it would go away. It kept spreading so I did some research and found molluscumrx online. It really helped my son and was going within about 3 weeks. I hope this helps you. I didn't have anyone when I was going through this.
I started having really bad cystic acne at the age of 35, I didn't know why. Just recently I got diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I don't know if the two are related in my case but this is what I do know. The dermatologist put me on antibiotics - the only thing it did was make me feel horribly tired and have bad headaches. They also put me on topical ziana which is supposed to be excellent and it's really expensive. Also, didn't do anything. Finally, I got fed up with the derms and tried stuff on my own. I started taking a high potency probiotic from whole foods (http://megafood-vitamins.com/megaflora-plus.html) every morning with breakfast. After a few months I saw improvement but not as much as I wanted. So I decided to take 2, and that made a huge difference. I still get breakouts but nothing like before and no more painful cystic acne. But it took a long time to see results so be patient. You can also try applying 1 part apple cider to 3 parts water. It makes your skin glow. Good luck! I
