ACNE: CAUSES AND TREATMENT
Hitting the root cause is the mainstay of treatment for any disease. Curing the symptoms is like cutting the branches. Thus curing symptoms is not going to help in long term.
- There is a hormonal and minerals imbalance in body which leads to regular break outs.
- Increased cortisone: Stress leads to increased cortisone. Excessive cortisone leads to acne break out. Regular meditation is the cure. Releasing the stress by writing it down is the solution.
- Increased estrogen: Increased intake of genetically modified food especially soybean, corns, milk leads to increased estrogen. Increased estrogen is one of the main factors which lead to repeated breakouts.
Most commonly genetically modified foods are:
- Milk: Everybody in India is consuming packed milk. That’s mainly taken from exotic breed of cows. Milk taken from indigenous breeds of cow is healthy and safe. If one can have access to that milk, then only consume milk. Else skip milk altogether.
- Stop earning cornflakes in morning breakfast. For they are made of genetically modified corn.
- Aspartame is an artificial sweetener. Avoid it all cost.
- Papaya, tomato, potato, rice are other food items which are majorly GMO. Take care to buy the non GMO variety. That is, buy as far as possible organic or naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
