“Accutane ruined my life. Ended my football career, horrible stuff.”

It makes sense that we seek advice on how to clear acne from our dermatologists but few people look to achieve long term results and many of my patients have experienced negative side effects from the use of prescription medication. Why?

Medical studies have proven inconclusive as to the cause of acne. Dermatologists are working from theories thus the use of drugs and strong antibacterial solutions are prescribed on what could be classed as a hit or miss basis. When one drug fails to work, another is prescribed until finally the list has ran out.

Over the years I have worked with many doctors who have sought my advice to clear their own skin and that of their children because they themselves have tried everything and were at a loss as to what to do next.  

 Acne is currently treated as a singular problem.

  • Do acne sufferers have other health issues?  Yes
  • Are these health issues caused by certain deficiencies? In the majority of cases yes
  • When the health issues are treated does the skin clear? Yes

The cause of acne is not the same for everyone but in the majority of cases that I have seen they have been caused by poorly functioning adrenal glands that have gone onto cause low stomach acid.

The majority of acne patients in particular those with cystic and nodular acne have the wrong acid in their digestive system. By simply introducing hydrochloric acid they can often see their skin clear quickly.

To introduce hydrochloric acid (HCL) you must first neutralise the bad acids in your stomach. You can do this by:

On the evening before introducing HCL. On an empty stomach take 1/2 a level teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda into a glass of water and drink before bed. 

The following morning take 2 x HCL with each meal. 

It is important that you purchase HCL without pepsin as most acne sufferers have built up too much pepsin already. 

My research papers will provide more information on the importance of a healthy digestive system. These will be available to download within 2022.
