thanks so much skimom. that would be really great! it's always a joy having people like you who share what works for them in order to help other people. and i must say, you're a really cool mom to do all that for your daughter. i wish my mom and dad were like that. :( all i get from them is a lecture, they'd say that i'd just have to accept my acne and it's not that big of a deal as i think it is. but they just don't understand. they told me to go to the derm, but i really don't think that's going to work long term (i hope you agree)...

anyway, i'm more open to do an internal cleansing because i believe it makes more sense. we should be treating the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms, which is what the derm does. they only address the symptoms. if they just go deeper and cure the cause before the symptoms, no one will ever have to treat acne like it's some kind of incurable disease. you know what i mean? but still, internal cleansing seems like a tough cookie to crack. it is complicated, and i'm scared that if i don't do it right my acne will be worse than ever! :rolleyes:

i hope you could share whatever info you have, it will be appreciated much.
thanks again! take care! regards to your daughter! ;)

Thank you for the kind words. I think I'm more in tuned with acne than some parents might be because it affected my life drastically when I had it. Thank Goodness, she handles it very very well and doesn't let it stop her from doing stuff. For me, if I didn't like the way my face looked, I stayed home.

What's interesting about the cleanse described on here is that it looks like you only have to take a couple of supplements plus acidophilus. Seems ridiculously simple. You don't even have to do the fast if you don't want to. It can't hurt you anyway and if it helps, great.

I got my daughter going to the derm early on and, of course, they put her on antibiotics which worked great for a few years. I thought our problems were licked but drugs just don't cut it long term. Unless you outgrow your acne before the drugs wear off. If I knew then what I know now, I would have taken her to an alternative medicine doctor instead of the derm. Good luck to you - I'll keep you posted if we do this.
