Dr. Berg explains the deeper root cause of acne and the fastest way to get clear skin. Most people make the mistake of scrubbing their skin and damaging it. The skin layer is filled with millions of friendly microbes that protect the skin. Cleansing the skin sterilizes it thus causing acne to come back due to the wrong bacteria. Taking antibiotics is not a long term solution because it develops resistant bacteria. Accutane has some serious side-effects.
Understanding sabaceous gland is the key. There are 5 things that make up acne.
- Plugged pores
- Excess oil or sebum and bacteria
- Enlarged sebaceous gland
- Excess skin formation.
The sabaceous gland is very sensitive to two sex hormones:
Androgens increase the size of the gland and the oil production. This can come from PCOS, which is excess insulin. Insulin resistance is the real cause. Insulin also increases the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase thus turning testosterone into DHT (a powerful form of testosterone.
The best thing to take is vitamin A (virgin cod liver oil), vitamin B5, zinc and also decreasing insulin: watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wduco…
Estrogen dominance (excess) can also cause hormonal acne, which is connected to a menstrual cycle. Typically the liver can not clear excess estrogen due to a fatty liver or even cirrhosis. This causes a a build up thus acne. Certain medications can also cause this. The enzyme aromatase, which converts testosterone into DHT (a powerful form of testosterone) can be triggered in excess due to liver dysfunction. If this happens add more Cruciferous vegetables or better yet DIM, which is a concentrated form of cruciferous. Stinging Nettle Root is a great plant to add as well. I combined DIM with cruciferous vegetables with stinging nettle root in my product called Estrogen Balance with DIM as listed at the top of this description -check it out.
