It purveys the idea that acne should be treated at the skin level, but doesn't even discuss why you have it, or give any methods for treating the underlying causes. Treating acne at the skin level is like trying to rid yourself of brain cancer by taking paracetamol to relieve the headaches. It might reduces the symptoms slightly, but it totally misses the root cause. You know when you can feel a spot brewing under your skin and you know that in a few days it will be a massive zit. Well that alone should tell you that treating it on the surface is a silly idea.
The topical treatments which the book suggests do have some affect though. Those treatments are:
* Using benzoyl peroxide cream (there's one called Quinoderm in the UK).
* Using a glycolic acid face wash (the Jan Marini one is quite good).
* Putting ice on your face (I'm slightly skeptical of this).
But if you really want to treat your acne you need to look at the root causes. I haven't found a total cure, but from my (quite extensive) research online it seems that some things pretty much cure some people, or have a very positive effect. I'm male, 29, and have got my acne very much under control. Here's what I did:
* Cleaned up my diet. No sugar. Largely organic. Good fats (omega 3). (Google "paleo diet".)
* Did the liver flush (see curezone.com), this is weird but had an AMAZING effect on my skin.
And here's what I still do:
* I take pantothenic acid (vitamin b5), about 3-7g per day (yes, grams, not mg), so 6-14 x 500mg capsules per day.
* My acne is made much worse by ejaculation, so I'm trying to learn male multiple orgasm.
If you're interested in the underlying causes and biology of it then try also Googling/Wikipedia-ing:
* L-cysteine (some people cite this as making the pantothenic acid more effective).
* CoenzymeA (is used to oxidise/metabolise fats in the skin, generated from pantothenic acid and l-cysteine).
* Testosterone (how it affects oil production).
Get Googling! Read a lot. Try things and see what works. Your journey has just begun...
I have been using the method for a few weeks and many people have commented on my skin. I am a make up artist so it really helped in my job.
I feel so much better and confident the only downside is sourcing products in the UK however managed to get them at not much cost either I have not been able to do the procedure every day and night as it dried out my skin so left it out a night and carried on.
I would suggest that if you have skin problems to give this a go for the recommended 6 weeks I found it to be the best remedy I have tried a bit time consuming at first but you soon make it a routine. Thank you very much Dr Debrow for this knowledge it's helped me no end.
Some of the products it recommends were not easy to find but managed to get everything from amazon.jan marini bioglycolic facial cleanser 236ml
