acne cleared without Accutane

I have had acne since I was 13. I am now 20 years old. LAst summer I decided to go on Accutane. It took 6 months for me to get great results. My skin was clear for 5 months, and then I started to break out again. I really was devasted. I found this web site and it really helped me. IT took a lot of time to figure out exactly what I needed to do, and all I wanted was for someone to make it simple for me. That's what I hope I can do for you. Basically I began to do meditation. I rented meditation tapes from my local library. I actually just got one that I love. It stimuiates Alpha brain waves which is what you need to get rid of stress and as a result get clear skin. The tape is 30 minutes long and it is really amazing. I have never done anything like that before and it is a very spirtual experience. I try to do it twice a day. That takes care of the SR. Then I also take the essential fatty acids that DR. Stoll talks about. I went to GNC or any vitamin store and bought GNC brand Flax oil capsules and Borage oil capsules. I take one of each every day. I also exercise (Tae-bo) and eat a low fat diet. That takes care of DR. SToll's plan. However, I also read a book I got from GNC by DR. Earl MIndell and he talks about other vitamins that help with acne. Vitamin B-6, especially for PMS acne; Dandelion root helps get rid of bacteria on your face; Vitamins A and E. Also Lecithin helps acne eruptions. I do all of this and my skin has improved tremendoulsy. I am so happy that I did not go back on Acctane. I know that I always get acne when I'm stressed so the meditation has really helped me. If you what to read up on those vitamins and their benifits look for Dr. Earl Mindell's book called Beatiful Skin, Hair and Nails. I hope this helps alot of you.

Thanks, Shannon.

Your testimonial will surely save many from the risks of accutane. You did exactly what I have been teaching on this 'site for many years. Congratulations on what you have learned.

What is the name/manufacturer of the tape you like best? I'm looking for a good one too.

I am 18 and have been on accutane for three months and still have one and a half months left. Do you think I should quit it? Did it take a toll on you? I am wondering if some of my chronic fatique might be caused by the accutane.
Thanks,
Bri
