Dairy, Hydrogenated Oils and Sugar can Cause Acne
Let's take a look at possible causes of the problem and possible natural support to help the body heal from the inside out. Dr. Mark Hyman relates in his works that in 2009, a systematic review of 21 observational studies and six clinical trials found a high correlation between cow's milk and both increased numbers of people who got acne and its severity. He also found that people who had higher sugar intake and a high glycemic load diet (more bread, rice, cereal, pasta, sugar, and flour products of all kinds) had significantly more acne.
Dairy, hydrogenated oils and refined sugar cause blood sugar to raise and to become dys-regulated. Androgens and insulin both stimulate skin to form pimples. Toxins and nutritional deficiencies can precipitate or complicate the problem as well.
Detoxification can aid in clearing a bad complexion. The skin is your first line of defense from foreign invasion. The skin is also a giant filter to release poisons and toxins if your other systems like the kidneys, liver and lymphatics are overloaded. Your skin is the largest organ in the body.
