Resources on preventing Acne through Diet & SR

Doc:
I stumbled on to your site while researching Accutane, and I was surprised to hear some of the messages. I am 25 years old, and I still suffer from mild acne. I was on a drug called Dynacin, which worked very well. I would get a pimple every now and again, and minor breakouts became rare. Whenever I stopped taking the Dynacin, I would break out again. After 1 year of treatment, my doctor suggested another drug, Accutane. This was after I just stopped taking the Dynacin and a breakout had occurred. Already depressed from having to deal with the recent breakout, I was up for anything to help. He read me the side effects, but expressed to me that they are rare. The monthly blood test did not sound remotely fun, especially since I am already terrified of needles. But, I was willing since I was getting to the point in my life that something needs to change. Then my fiancé saw the program on TV about Accutane and how dangerous it was. She was boldly against me taking Accutane, so I decided to do some research myself. That brought me to your site and my ultimate decision not to go on the Accutane. I have since begun drastically changing my diet. Mainly, I am minimizing carbohydrates and I have all but eliminated sugar. I have tried reducing stress, and I can say that I a noticeable difference is present. Maybe it is because my body is not craving the Dynacin. I don’t know. But, I am sold on the diet and SR theory.

That takes me to my question. Where can I find a book that describes correct diet practices, methods of SR, and other things that I can do or take to help my acne. I was reading about your book, and it sounds wonderful, but does it specifically address the problem of acne? Your site mentions treatment of acne, but does the book? I plan on buying your book anyway, but what other resources can I go to help me with acne. Perhaps some ideas like Dr. Kim has with diet.

Thanks,
Josh

Hi, Josh.

MY book is a tool to help the reader learn a different way of thinking. It contains all the resources (in the appendix) for learning any thing you determine will help.

The relaxation book mentioned in the article on the home page and the diet book mentioned in the article about candida are what you need to actually do what you have decided to do.

Let us know how you do.

Walt

Doc:
In the appendix is there a specific reference to a diet book where i can get info on exactly what foods I should be eating and which ones I should avoid.

Thanks,
Josh

Hi, Josh.

Start with the "Healing Power of Whole Foods" by Beth Loiselle, RD. Call (800) 870-5378 OR click on the amazon.com link on this 'site.

Once you have that under control, if you need more information, write again.

Josh,

May I suggest you to look here on this site about metabolic diets and ER4YT diets. There is apparently no single perfect diet for everybody, you have to find yours. For example, whole wheat is considered a very nutritive food, but if your blood type is O you must avoid it.

Another small thing, are you aware of mercury toxicity from dental fillings? If you have more than about 4 gray dental fillings, you should take a look at this subject. I make this comment based on my personnal experience, I am not a doctor.

Serge C.
