Acne

Updated: 3 days ago

Acne occurs when the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It commonly appears on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Acne lesions heal slowly and are annoyingly persistent. It may cause emotional distress and lead to scarring of the skin. The earlier you start treatment, the lower risk of lasting physical and emotional damage. The following are our clinical tips for acne treatment; you may want to try some of them:


Internal Treatment


Vitamin B2: supports a broad spectrum of health benefits; it is essential for tissue repair. It helps to maintain healthy hair and skin. Many of our patients who had acne taking vitamin B2 100mg/day after about a month were acne-free.


Vitamin C: supports the immune system to prevent skin infection. Take vitamin C 500mg every day.


Ping’s green drink is a natural colon cleanse. The essential ingredients are asparagus, broccoli, celery, kale, and lemon. Blend with 8 oz water (see healthyping.com for more details). This drink contains soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps you have normal stools twice a day, clean the digestive tract, and detoxify the body.

Papaya and pineapple enzymes help with digestion, bloating, belching, and gas, reducing inflammation and keeping the skin healthy. Take one enzyme pill with each meal.

Raw apple cider vinegar kills germs and nourishes the body at the same time. It has natural cleansing, healing, and energizing health benefits. Add one tablespoon of ACV to a glass of water and drink it after each meal.


Topical Treatment


Iodine or Betadine: kills germs promptly, stops skin infection quickly, and heals acne in 1 or 2 days. Apply either iodine or Betadine on acne spots twice a day; the sooner you start, the quicker you’ll see the results.

Pride Drawing Salve is a natural approach to heal boils, relieve abscesses and ease pain & swelling. Apply it on the lesion twice a day. For example, a patient had an acne cyst size 2X2 cm, very painful and swollen; after using Pride, the pus came out, and the cyst quickly shrank; 2 weeks later, the acne cyst healed.

Acupuncture Treatment

It helps relieve stress, relax muscles, boost the immune system, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, detoxify the body and shorten the acne healing process.
