hi guys, new to the forum. just wondering if there is anything in herbs or eastern medicine to help stop acne from occurring? what should I do?14th April 2015 at 7:23 pm #75
it needs to be diagnosed properly, as to what is causing it – it could be from hormone imbalance and also a combination of toxicity (if you stay constipated a lot, then toxins build up and can result in a lot of acne for example) or if you eat too much sugar/carbs/fat, then the body is generally more toxic.

Danny, as Z said, the diagnosis is important. Where are you getting the acne? What is your diet comprised of mainly? And what age range do you come under?
In my experience, hormonal changes with a messed up diet created the majority of skin conditions. Eating a lot of junk, rich, carby foods can create heat in your system which can manifest as acne. It can also indirectly contribute to (an existing) hormonal imbalance which again can make you break out.
There are different types of acne depending on severity too, being aware of this will help you determine the cause. If you have cystic acne, build up of toxicity (mental, environmental or dietry) can be a culprit whereas less severe forms can usually just come about from a more minor change or could be hygiene related. It really is more complex than just one thing usually.14th April 2015 at 8:25 pm #81
My local acupuncturist gave me Pi Fu Bing Xue Du Wan (quite a mouthful i know).
I am not sure what was in that or what exactly it is for, maybe someone here can enlighten me, but it seemed to work for as long as I was using it.
It didn’t last long and was fairly expensive.
