Hi,

You have answered your own question. There is no permanent short term measure, but a complete lifestyle change which would help you solve your hormonal issues. To get rid of acne getting to the root cause and solving that would help you achieve clear smooth skin. No doubt some short term home remedies could support you, but to get rid of it completely a holistic lifestyle change is recommended. To understand this lets briefly look at the working of our body.

Acne sets off because of the amount of change in the sex hormones in the blood. There is an increase in the production of testosterone. When there is an increase in the production in the blood it also increases the production of sebum in the skin. Bacteria live everywhere on our skin and where is an increase in sebum, they have a lot more food to feed on. This results in bacteria multiplying in numbers and the body in response to this produces little pistules in response to this. When we observe this on our skin our immediate reaction is we must clean and scrub our skin more often. But, this harms rather than benefiting us. The reason is our body produces an acid layer so that the bacteria cannot enter our body, but when we scrub our skin the acid layer is washed off and the bacteria gain entry into our body. Its actually the function of our liver to change the structure of the sex hormones and remove them in the faecal matter after they have done their job, but if the liver is too overwhelmed either due to toxic overload which happens either due to wrong food choices, medications, pollution, etc, then the sex hormones would not be changed efficiently or quickly enough to be removed from our body. They then stay for longer time in the blood and then it provides more food for the bacteria to feed on. This continues in a vicious cycle.

Following lifestyle changes would be helpful:

  • That includes removal of all animal products including dairy, removal of packed and processed, oily and sugary foods. This creates an overload of toxins and disturbs the balance of the body.
  • Include lots of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. They all contain essential vitamins and minerals for the normal functioning of the body.
  • Avoid excess of teas, coffee. This also triggers the production of cortisol.
  • Exposure to sunshine and proper rest and sleep are also of prime importance. They release happy hormones. And in a relaxed state, the body can repair and heal. Early morning sun exposure helps get rid of any surface bacteria and clears the skin.
  • Manage stress either by some physical activity or deep breathing. This calms the body down. This helps the body to understand that there is no urgency and it can repair and heal.
  • Adequate sleep. The body repairs and heals during sleep.

You could read the journeys of many people who reversed this condition with a natural lifestyle.

You could also take help from Nature Nurtures buddy programmehttps://www.wellcure.com/body-wisdom/339/nature-nurtures-program-wellcure-your-natural-health-coachto to help you with this transition to a natural lifestyle.

Wishing you Good Health Always!

Whenever we talk about hormonal imbalance we are seeking the homeostasis of the whole body. The problem with hormonal acne is that it is not limited to the skin it is about maintaining the whole body's status. The best thing to deal with hormonal acne is to change your lifestyle to a healthier regime and the addition of fruits and vegetables.

You can start your day with methi powder and warm water which gives insulin resistance and helps in menstrual cycle regulation. Adding more raw vegetables and fruits in your diet will help in cleansing your system.

You can also try a fruit diet every 15-20 days for cleansing your stomach. Consuming one single fruit for a day, these things will help in making your GUT stronger. Consuming things like dates, spinach, tomatoes, beetroot helps in reducing acne.

You can try the following face packs for external application:

  • Dry orange peels for a day and grinds them, in the powder add gram flour and honey in it. Use this pack every alternate day to see the glow and ace effects reducing.
  • Neem powder mixed with turmeric also helps a lot.
  • Fla seeds and beetroot mixture helps in bringing the glow back.

Thank you

PCOD / Acne both are lifestyle problems and all lifestyle issues, whatever may be the name, come together and heal together. This is not a symptomatic approach, its an approach that deals with the cause. When you make lifestyle changes suggested below, both issues will be addressed and reversed together.

PCOS is a result of the body malfunctioning due to lifestyle. Once the lifestyle is corrected and back to track, the body gets back to normal too. Whether it was emotional stress or physical stress and wrong food choices, a sedentary lifestyle, they all help each other mess the body’s normal functioning. I believe that people who are disciplined can reverse it in a few months. But this is a lifestyle and not a diet. Cysts are growths in the body that store toxins in it. Cysts are at the hardening stage of a disease progression in the body. If those toxins were roaming freely, it would have caused more damage. It’s hence the way of locking those toxins and viruses in a sack. Once a healthy plant-based lifestyle is followed, they will melt and be thrown out of the body. Your weight will also come under control once you remove the causes that have caused this imbalance.

Follow this:-

Morning on an empty stomach

  • Celery juice 500 ml filtered / ash gourd juice/cucumber juice/ green juice with any watery vegetables like ash gourd /cucumber/ridge gourd/bottle gourd/carrot/ beet with ginger and lime filtered/ tender coconut water or more pure veggie juice.

Afternoon from 12:-

  • A bowl of fruits - don’t mix melons and other fruits. Eat melons alone. Eat citrus fruits alone.

  • Followed by a bowl of veg salad.

  • Dinner 2-3 hrs before sleep with Gluten-free, oil-free unpolished grains or dals 30%, and 70% veggies.

  • Please take enema for 30 days with Luke warm water and then slowly reduce the freq. this is not a substitute for a daily nature call. Consult an expert as needed

  • Include some exercises that involve moving all your parts (neck, shoulder, elbows, wrist, hip bending, twisting, squats, knees, ankles). Join a gym and start weight training. Do yoga for flexibility

  • See if u can go to the morning sun for sometime in a day for 30 mins at least.

  • Ensure that you are asleep between 10-2 which is when the body needs deep sleep.

  • Place a wet cloth on your tummy for 30 mins daily

  • Next, avoid all cosmetics and chemical application on the skin. Use natural products such as my recipes here below. Put things on your skin that you can put into your mouth too. As you continue to improve on the raw intake in your life, the skin will definitely pop out and overtime release all the toxins that are inside the body. You will have to allow it to happen for your acne to be completely healed in the future. Pus is nothing but all the toxins that are coming out.

What to Avoid:-

  • Avoid refined oils, fried food, packaged ready to eat foods, dairy in any form including ghee, refined salt, and sugar, gluten, refined oils, coffee, tea, and alcohol.

  • Avoid mental stress by not thinking about things you cannot control. The present is inevitable. The future can be planned. Stay happy. Happiness is only inside yourself. The world around you is a better place if you learn to stay happy inside yourself. Reach us if you need more help in this area. Emotional stress can cascade the effects. Thank your body and love it

Be blessed.
