How to get rid of acne fast

how to get rid of acne, natural treatment and food to avoid.

Do you want to know how to get rid of acne fast? 

I’m here to help you today with very important information that I wish someone would have given me when I was younger and suffering from acne… 

Acne is a skin disease that affects about 10% of the world’s population and over 85% of teenagers…

And in places like the US, acne persists in the 20s and 30s of almost half men and women…

It’s important to understand that acne is an epidemic disease of industrialized countries only… Where we consume A LOT of dairy products! 

Milk and Acne

Have you ever heard of the enzyme TOR, which contributes to acne in adolescents?

Milk is naturally supposed to stimulate TOR because it contains hormones that do so. 

The problem is that TOR not only contributes to acne, but it’s also a major disease-causing factor, like obesity, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.

So… if milk is supposed to stimulate TOR naturally, why is it also provoking acne and other unwanted diseases?

The problem is we’re drinking milk from the another species…

Cow’s milk is for calves… 

Donkey milk is for donkeys…

Human milk is for babies…

Here are some facts about milk:

Calves grow 40 times faster than human infants. 

Cow’s milk has 3 times more leucine (the primary activator of TOR).

Humans drinking cow’s milk may lead to TOR overstimulation, causing acne and other diseases.

Here’s a video that talks about TOR and acne from Dr. Michael Greger’s website 

But it’s not just TOR that causes acne

Milk is also known to stimulate IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) which is also linked to acne, cancer, and other major diseases. 

This study looked at the link between whey protein in milk and concluded:

“The growth signaling system of mammalian milk is exclusively and physiologically provided to the newborn only during the nursing period. The chronic ‘abuse’ of this mammalian postnatal signaling system by widespread cow milk and dairy consumption in humans of industrialized societies has been proposed to be the major cause of the acne epidemic and the more serious chronic western diseases.”

Milk is for babies only

Humans seems to forget that milk is for babies only… 

In fact, no animals continue drinking their mother’s milk after weaning!

Humans, on the other had, still consume all sorts of cow’s milk products during adolescence and adulthood… (but breast milk is gross, right?🙄)

We not only continue to drink milk, but we also drink the milk of a 1,500 pounds cow!

It’s not a surprise that our behaviours lead to diseases… We are going against Mother Nature! 

Is milk calcium healthy

Here’s what I found in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology:

“The papers from the Harvard School of Public Health establish an association between milk consumption and acne. But how could milk cause acne? Because drinking milk and consuming dairy products from pregnant cows exposes us to the hormones produced by the cows’ pregnancy, hormones that we were not designed to consume during our teenage and adult years. It is no secret that teenagers’ acne closely parallels hormonal activity… So what happens if exogenous hormones are added to the normal endogenous load? And what exactly is the source of these hormones? Consider that, in nature, milk is consumed from a mother, whether human or bovine, until weaning occurs. Normally, the mother then ceases lactation before the next pregnancy occurs— so that consuming milk from a mother pregnant with her next offspring is not a common occurrence. We’ve all seen nature films of animals chasing their offspring away to encourage weaning at the appropriate time. Further, in nature, the offspring consumes only the milk of its own species—but both of these natural rules are broken by humans. Viewed objectively, human consumption of large volumes of another species’ milk, especially when that milk comes mainly from pregnant cows during the human’s normally post-weaned years, is essentially unnatural.”

How to get rid of acne fast

So… can you guess what my first recommendation is to get rid of acne?

Yes, avoid all dairy products!

I myself was a big consumer of dairy. I drank a litre of milk per day. And I added cheese on pretty much everything. 

I used to open a brick of cheese and eat it on front of the TV. 

And I also had HUGE pimples!

I had acne problems until I was 29 (which is the year I stopped all dairy products).

At the time, I didn’t understand why I still had pimples, knowing that acne was supposed to be a puberty thing…

Until I read the science… 

I swear, from the day that I ditched dairy, I’ve never had acne again! 

Eating more fruits and vegetables, and avoiding processed foods, added sugars, fried foods, and meats are also the general recommendations to get rid of acne. 

Treatments to get rid of acne

Benzoyl peroxide is definitely the most popular over-the-counter acne treatment, even though it causes side effects.

It can be very irritating, causing redness and dryness. 

Some people may go for prescribed antibiotics that suppress the bacteria that cause acne. 

However, this acne treatment is becoming less effective because of the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Natural treatment to get rid of acne

Want to know how to get rid of acne fast, without benzoyl peroxide or antibiotics?

A few studies have shown that tee tree oil is 3.5 times more effective than a placebo and as good as Benzoyl peroxide! They concluded that applying tea tree oil on the skin could “significantly improve mild to moderate acne.”

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is derived from the leaves of the tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia.

* The tea tree is not the same as the common tea plant that is used to make black and green teas.

Detox to get rid of Acne

Have you heard of detoxing?

We live in a world full of toxins… Every day, we come in contact with toxins, from the food we eat, the products we use, the air we breathe, etc…

Toxins are responsible for a toxic body, provoking fatigue, brain fog, headaches, weight gain, digestive problems, and skin problems.

Detoxing regularly is important if we want to have lots of energy, mental clarity, a slim body, healthy digestion, and clear skin.

Even though I have a very healthy lifestyle, I like to detox once a month or every other month with a short cleanse…

Nothing difficult, just detox smoothies and detox salads!

It also allows me to boost my immune system and greatly increase my energy. I have healthier looking skin, I look thinner, and I assimilate nutrients more efficiently.

Fasting to get rid of acne

Most people who fast report having better-looking skin instantly. As if fasting would give them a special glow.

During a fast, people get rid all kinds of toxins and harmful bacteria that were probably causing their skin problems.

Don’t forget that health starts in the gut. When your gut isn’t healthy, it comes out on the skin.

And fasting is one of the best ways to heal your gut naturally.

When my clients do my 7-day detox program, they flush out parasites and bad bacteria, and then repopulate their gut with new healthy bacteria.

It’s amazing!

They not only feel better after the program, but they also have better skin!
