Acne

Acne is the result of a hormonal imbalance, the skin’s reaction to this upset and infection by a bacterium called Propionibacterium acne (P.acne) which has become increasingly resistant to conventional antibiotic creams and drugs.

The skin of sufferers has been found to show greater activity of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase which converts excesses of the male hormone, testosterone, to a more potent, spot-triggering form called dihydrotestosterone but this is not the only cause.

Blood tests, for instance, reveal higher levels of toxins from the gut flora of acne sufferers so improving digestion can also help. In addition, vitamins A and D play a key role which is why exposure to sunlight can help clear an acne infection.
