Hoe je acne kunt verminderen

Waarom het poetsen en scrubben van de huid averrechts werkt en waarom een bekend middel dat synthetische vitamine A bevat zoveel nadelen heeft. Goede bronnen van natuurlijke vitamine A zijn extra virgin levertraan, grasboter en eierdooiers. Daarnaast zijn stress en voeding die je suikerspiegel opjaagt aanjagers van acne.


Tip: Acne, darmen en de lever

Een kennis van 54 heeft acne. Vreemd natuurlijk, om op latere leeftijd weer acne te krijgen. Ik lees in het boek van Dextreit dat je jezelf dan vanbinnen erg aan het vergiftigen bent! Het is EN de lever EN de darm! (A toxic and devitalized condition, staat er.) Niet vreemd natuurlijk, als je weet dat die kennis haar galblaas al jaren kwijt is en goedkope rotzooi eet en dan nog het liefst uit een potje en varkensvlees.

Kunnen virussen worden gebruikt om acne te behandelen?

Wetenschappers hebben de genooms van 11 virussen geïsoleerd en bestudeerd, bekend als faag, die de acne-veroorzakende bacterie Propionibacterium acnes kunnen infecteren en doden, en potentieel de weg vrijmaken voor actuele therapieën die virussen of virale producten gebruiken om deze kwellende huidaandoening te behandelen. Hun resultaten zijn gerapporteerd in het 25 September nummer van mBio ®, de online open-access journal van de American Society for Microbiology. "Er zijn twee tamelijk voor de hand liggende potentiële richtingen die gebruik maken van dit soort onderzoek," zegt Graham Hatfull van de Universiteit van Pittsburgh, een auteur van de studie. "De eerste is de mogelijkheid van het gebruik van de bacteriofagen rechtstreeks als therapie tegen acne. De tweede is de kans om de faag-afgeleide componenten te gebruiken voor hun activiteiten."

Acne really is a nightmare for some teens

Zits, pimples, bumps and blemishes are a young person's worst nightmare. Collectively they are known as acne, a very common skin condition that affects millions of adolescents. Now a Norwegian study published in the open access journal BMC Public Health has investigated the links between acne, diet and mental health issues in both males and females. University of Oslo researcher Jon Anders Halvorsen together with co-authors from Lhasa (Tibet) and Boston (US) studied 3775 adolescents to explore the possible causes of acne. The 18- and 19-year olds were given questionnaires to monitor their diets, lifestyle variables, and mental conditions. Participants reported on their own acne. Lastly, researchers acquired the socio-demographic status of the young people from Statistics Norway. The study identified crude associations between acne and high intake of chocolate and chips and low intake of vegetables. In girls, there was a significant link between acne and diet low in raw and fresh vegetables. This may indicate that a low-glycemic index could have a protective role in the development of acne. Dr. Halvorsen said "Our study shows a possible link between diet and acne. However, when we introduced symptoms of depression and anxiety in our statistical model, the role of diet became less clear. On the other hand the association between acne and mental health problems was still strong when diet was introduced. This underscores mental health problems as an important aspect of young people's acne".

Some prescription meds can harm fetus

More than six percent of expectant mothers in Quebec consume prescription drugs that are known to be harmful to their fetuses, according to a Université de Montréal investigation published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Half these women will voluntarily terminate their pregnancy fearing congenital malformations, which means the abortion rate among these women is 11 percent higher than in the rest of the population. "I never expected such results and I was extremely surprised," says senior author Anick Bérard, a professor at the Université de Montréal's Faculty of Pharmacy and director of the Research Unit on Medications and Pregnancy of the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center. Dr. Bérard examined data from the Quebec Pregnancy Registry on 109,344 women, aged 15 to 45, who were pregnant between 1998 and 2002. Her research team found that 6,871 pregnant women consumed one of 11 prescription drugs that are known to be harmful to fetuses through the first, second or third trimester. Of those women, 3,229 aborted; 6 percent had a miscarriage; and 8.2 percent gave birth to a child with major congenital malformations. By comparison, the rate of fetal malformations in the general population in the province of Quebec is approximately seven percent. "If there are 80,000 births in Quebec per year, a one percent difference translates into an additional 800 children born with serious malformations," says Bérard, who is currently a visiting professor at the Université Claude Bernard in Lyon, France. "At the very best, those babies will die. In the worst case, they'll live with serious physical or psychological health problems their entire lives." The study also examined the use of prescription drugs that are known to be feto-toxic or increase in-utero problems or premature births. The researchers found that 11,400 prescriptions – for dangerous medicines such as isotretinoin (for the treatment of acne and rosacea), anxiolytic benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety treatment) and antiepileptics (epileptic seizure treatment) – were used by pregnant women. Other drugs that were harmful to fetuses – for hypertension, anticoagulation and infection – were also widely used.

Acne help - its all about carbs and blood sugar control

Acne is mainly caused by blood sugar control issues. Blood sugar imbalance results in excessive insulin production. Excessive insulin levels lead to a greater release of the hormones testosterone and IGF1 - insulin growth factor. Excessive testosterone and IGF1 increases the production of sebum (a fat) and keratin (a protein) within hair follicles. Sebum and keratin excess block hair follicles leading to spots (acne). So the acne solution is: Modify the carbs you eat!. Reduce excessive carbs - breads, pastas, potatoes and rice. The main offenders. Remove sugar - this is the most important thing. This includes table sugar, honey, syrups, fructose, glucose/fructose syrup. Eat low GI/GL carbohydrates. Eat a protein serving with each meal. Eat fibre - lots of vegetables should be the main source. Studies show that: Excessive carbs increase testosterone production = raised chance of spots. Poor quality carbs (high GI/GL) increase the activity of testosterone and IGF1 and result in more acne.


Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Oil - Centuries ago, the Polynesians had to find ways to improve and preserve their health by finding and using the benefits they discovered in their natural pharmacy, native plants and herbs. They had no doctors or pharmacies in those early times and were forced to find and test the plants they found growing on the islands. One of their most urgent needs was to find a way to protect and heal their skin as the salt-laden winds, the high ambient temperature, and injuries damaged their skin. Until they found the right plants and learned to process and find a potential remedy, it was difficult or impossible to treat skin problems. Then they found the Tamanu tree, its fruits and nuts and discovered a way to make use of this miraculous tree as their sacred skin-care aid. They were also surely attracted to the beautiful and fragrant little flowers that grow on the trees. When they mature, the flowers are replaced by small, round green fruits, about an inch in diameter.

Melk de opjager van acne

Three large studies reported a positive association between milk intake and acne. The studies of Adebamowo et al.29,30 demonstrated that higher levels of milk consumption were associated with acne risk in both boys and girls. In the Nurses' Health Study II,27 women who consumed more milk as adolescents (based on later recall) showed a greater prevalence of severe acne than those with less frequent consumption. These findings are supported by previous population-based studies,19,22,23 in which areas with minimal consumption of dairy products had a very low acne prevalence. In recent observational studies, skimmed milk was consistently associated with acne, suggesting that the fat content of milk does not appear to affect its acne-causing ability. Some authors have reported that the hormones in milk, such as IGF-1, 5a-reduced steroids, and a-lactalbumin, may survive milk processing and affect the pilosebaceous unit.40 Milk consumption also increases IGF-1 production, which has been associated with ovarian androgen production in premenarchal girls and acne in adult women.

New research has found that a drug used to treat severe forms of acne reduces the availability of the chemical serotonin, low levels of which have been linked to aggression and clinical depression.

Diet, Specifically Zinc, Plays a Key Role in Acne

Acne and the Western diet

Avoiding the typical Western diet of sugary foods and highly processed carbohydrates could help prevent acne, according to a new study by a Colorado State University researcher. Loren Cordain, professor of health and exercise science at Colorado State, led the study with five scientists from around the country who looked at the more than 1,300 Kitivan Islanders of Papua New Guinea and the Ache hunter-gatherers of Paraguay. The researchers found a surprising difference in acne incidence rates between the non-Westernized subjects studied and individuals of fully modernized Western societies. Over the course of the study, not a single case of active acne was observed in either Kitivan Islanders or Ache hunter-gatherers. In Westernized societies, acne is a near-universal skin disease afflicting 79 percent to 95 percent of the adolescent population. Of men and women over the age of 25, 40 percent to 54 percent have some degree of facial acne. According to Cordain, the perfect skin of the two unrelated groups in the study could not be explained by genetics, but likely was the result of differing environmental factors. "High-glycemic foods such as bread, cakes, sugars and soft drinks may contribute to the acne suffered by 95 percent of Westernized teenagers," Cordain said. The diet of Kitivans in Papua New Guinea consists mainly of fruit, fish and tubers - dietary habits that are virtually uninfluenced by Western foods. The diet of the Ache hunter-gatherers of Paraguay includes wild and foraged foods, locally cultivated food and a small percentage of Western foods obtained from external sources. Their diet includes wild game but mainly consists of cultivated crops such as peanuts and sweet manioc, which is a native root. Few studies have evaluated the prevalence of acne in non-Westernized societies; however, there is suggestive evidence that the incidence of acne is lower in non-industrialized societies than in Westernized populations. Cordain believes the Western diet permanently boosts the hormone insulin in the human system, which leads to acne. By elevating growth factors and hormones, insulin indirectly stimulates the overproduction of oil and skin cells in pores. Clogged pores nourish bacteria, forming infected blemishes. The study also found that dietary changes focusing on low glycemic carbohydrates - fruits, most meats, fish and vegetables (excluding potatoes) - may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of acne because of the beneficial endocrine effects. Diets rich in low glycemic foods reduced serum testosterone and fasting blood sugar levels while improving insulin metabolism. These endocrine changes are consistent with those known to promote normal growth of skin cells and to reduce sebum production, two of the main contributors to acne.

You may suffer from gluten sensitivity and it may prevent you from curing acne. Gluten sensitivity is one of those hidden and hard to detect causes behind many health problems. And something you might not think of in a million years. It also happens to be the reason many acne victims struggle to get clear skin.

Androgen in milk of Pregnant cows causes Acne

Cow milk not only stimulates sebaceous glands and induces acne; it is also a leading cause of excessive weight gain in girls. Androgen helps build and maintain male and female characteristics, thus, intake of pregnant cow milk causes high weight, and teenagers are more sexually excited and girls may develop enlarged breasts. Too large amounts of androgen may cause breast cancer, studies show; however, further research is still needed.

Diet Plays a Key Role in Acne, Specifically Zinc

There are subtle signs to zinc deficiency. Acne can be just one of them. Other signs can be white spots on the fingernails, dry, brittle hair, slow wound healing and a decreased sense of taste and smell. I had all of these. Zinc plays an important role in our overall immune function and is important for our general health. In addition to adding zinc-rich foods to my diet, I've also added purifying green tea (both the drink and a green tea mask), vitamin A rich carrot juice (mixed with orange to make it taste better), lots of delicious berries, foods rich in omega-3 and other great-for-the-skin goodies.

How to be Acne Free for a Lifetime by Dr. Loren Cordain

Most people think that acne is a disease of adolescence that just disappears after the teen years. Not so! In the United States, acne affects between 40 and 50 million people from children to adults. In young adults, some degree of facial acne is found in 54% of women and 40% of men. Those suffering from acne are estimated to spend millions collectively each year on over-the-counter acne treatments. Surprisingly, the causes of acne have been known for more than 40 years. Acne develops from four processes:

Blockage of the follicle opening or the pore
Excessive production of skin oil
Bacterial colonization and infection of the pimple and
Inflammation of the pimple and surrounding tissue
Let's take a look at how diet influences the development of acne.

Refined grains, refined sugars and certain dairy foods keep blood insulin concentrations high, and cause a hormonal cascade that underlies the development of acne. When insulin is elevated, it lowers IGFBP-3. This is a beneficial hormone that promotes normal skin cell death and prevents pores from becoming blocked. When insulin is elevated, it also increases IGF-1. This hormone stimulates excessive skin cell growth, and elevated IGF-1 prevents IGFBP-3 from doing its job. IGF-1 also causes the testes and ovaries to secrete too much androgen, a hormone that increases skin oil production. Because refined vegetable oils contain too much omega-6 fats and too little omega-3 fats, they promote excess inflammation through an inflammatory hormone called IL-1 alpha that can cause skin cells to stick together and block pores. Whole grains, beans and legumes contain substances called lectins that can get into the bloodstream, and may promote acne by inhibiting ZAG. This is an enzyme that normally dissolves proteins holding skin cells together, again promoting pore blockage. Lectins also increase IL-1 alpha and other inflammatory hormones. Additionally, lectins impair normal zinc metabolism, and low zinc concentrations in the bloodstream promote inflammation. Due to high calcium concentrations, dairy products also impair zinc absorption and contribute to marginal zinc status.

Does this mean cutting out all of your favorite foods forever? Absolutely not! Because it takes about 30 days for your skin cells to completely renew themselves, you will need to strictly adhere to the diet for about a month. In most cases, you should experience dramatic improvement in your acne symptoms. Within days or a week of adopting the diet, much of the inflammatory symptoms of acne will begin to subside. Once you have achieved clearance of your acne symptoms, you may experiment to identify foods that may be added back into your diet in limited quantities. My advice is to only add a single food or food type once a month. You may find that you can eat pizza once a week with no problems, but pizza 3 days in a row will cause problems. However, remember that the further you drift from the basics of the diet, the greater will be the chance of your acne returning. The foods to avoid include refined sugars, refined grains, refined oils, dairy products, legumes, whole grains, and potatoes. It's also better to avoid yeast-containing foods, alcohol, sweets (including dried fruit), margarines and shortenings, and fatty, processed and canned meat and fish. The only acceptable vegetable and salad oils are flaxseed oil, canola oil, walnut oil and olive oil. Since all processed foods are basically mixtures of sugars, grains, oils and dairy products, they should be eliminated for the first 30-days.

This a lifetime way of eating that will improve your health and reduce your risk of getting the chronic diseases (heart disease, high blood cholesterol, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disorders) that afflict almost 70% of all adults in the U.S. Simply reading about how to change your diet won't make you one bit healthier. That's why we've developed the Paleo Diet Implementation Program. This program brings together Pedro Bastos (an internationally recognized nutrition consultant with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of nutrition and health), Nell Stephenson (a competitive Ironman athlete and experienced trainer and eating coach), Wiley Long, editor of The Paleo Diet Update and myself. Our focus will be on helping you make shopping and preparing meals quick and easy. In the program, we will show you a wonderful cornucopia of healthful foods. We'll also have a discussion forum set up so you can connect with your fellow participants to share insights.

The program is available at www.ThePaleoDiet.com/implementation-program.shtml.

Your taste buds and palette will be pleasantly surprised when you replace processed foods made with the same old four ingredients (refined grains, refined oils, refined sugars, and salt) with delicious fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meat and seafood. You will love your new image along with increases in your energy, health and fitness that most people enjoy as they adopt this lifetime program of eating. Next time, we'll look at evidence indicating that autism may be influenced by a casein/gluten-free diet. We'll also hear from an athlete regarding the results of staying Paleo and the consequences of little deviations.


Hormonen uit melk en suikerrijke voeding de aanjager van acne

Teens who avoid milk and sugary foods may experience fewer skin blemishes, according to a new study in April’s International Journal of Dermatology. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H., and her coauthors reviewed 27 previously published scientific studies and found that the more milk young people drank, the more likely they were to develop acne. Sugary foods appear to have a similar effect. Surprisingly, studies involving chocolate were inconclusive."Setting aside milkshakes will likely do more to prevent blemishes than a drugstore full of commercial products," says Dr. Ferdowsian, associate director of the Washington Center for Clinical Research. "Milk appears to fuel hormone imbalances that can lead to acne." Adolescents following a Western diet often experience the overproduction of natural hormones. Hormones or proteins found in milk may increase skin oil production, leading to pimples. Conversely, diets high in fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and beans prevent the buildup of excess hormones in the system.
