For Effective Acne Treatment, Eat
by Foras Aje
It's been said in the drugless
fraternity that "you are what you eat". Fruit is also highly
esteemed as a helpful near panacea for a plethora of human ailments.
Well let's see which ones are helpful for skin disorders, namely acne.
-Apples -"Remember the
saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Well It could
mean keeps the 'dermatologist' away in this case. When in season,
(mostly through fall and winter, try to eat 3 - 4 apples a day while
working to alleviate acne. Apples are good for skin health. From
experience, you are best of eating ONLY organic apples and you could
actually get great deals at your local Trader Joe's or Co-Op Stores, or
Open Air Farmer's market. Heck, they are usually on sale as a
"365" item at Whole foods so they shouldn't be hard to
-Apricots - These are a summer
stone fruit. Eat as many as you like. They are excellent sources of
vitamin A, the B-complex vitamins and fiber. As with all fruits, I
suggest eating organically grown apricots only for acne treatment.
-Bananas - This fruit needs no
introduction, being that it's available year round, and even organically
is only 27cents for each one; you've got to at least one banana a day.
Dr. Doug Graham, a trainer for several athletes and show-biz stars, goes
as far as to saying anywhere between 5-15 of these babies in the
afternoon after your physical exertions are extremely excellent. From my
experience, they are very useful for combating constipation, which
perhaps is the main cause of acne. One more thing, they have been said
to have EVERYTHING the human body needs to survive.
-Berries-These are a spring time
fruit. This signifies their properties as cleansing items as that period
of the year is when nature does a 'clean-house' of some sorts. They help
a weak kidney and are good for creating good skin on your face. They are
also good for constipation and various skin disorders - eczema, acne,
-Cantaloupes - In the summer
times, I could live of these or any other melons and be just fine. Being
as they are high in vitamin A and C, and have many other minerals, they
are good for any type of skin problems
- Cherries - Hey, try squeezing
one of this when they are fully ripe. Doesn't the juice resemble one's
blood? Needless to say, they are good blood cleansers and help the liver
and kidney. They promote regular bowel movements. I will have you know
that an exclusive diet of these for 3 plus days can be a very, very
effective camouflaged fasts and for acne, it's definitely up there with
natural healing substances.
- Figs: As a Mucus-binding
(disease Healing Food), they are ranked as the most potent fruit for
eliminating debris in the body. They are available in the summer times,
but dry figs could be soaked overnight in other periods to re-hydrate
them for consumption as they are indeed great overall body healing and
-Grapefruits - helps to dissolve
and eliminate poisons from drugs thus improving the liver function.
These, being an acid fruit, are best consumed in the earlier parts of
the day. As with all citrus fruits, they are very mucus-binding and
cleansing as well.
-Grapes -I don't know about you,
but come late summer, I can last for days on Globe Grapes (don't believe
in seedless fruits), and suffice it to say that for combating
constipation, cleansing and building the blood and body, they are
extremely effective items.
-Lemons: Everyone should squeeze
lemon in warm water first thing in the morning. They are very alkaline
forming, and restore balance to the body. They also help loosen up any
debris that fruits and vegetables (with their broom-like qualities) may
have loosened up the day before.
Well, truth is you can't go wrong
with eating any and a lot of fruits when in season and preferably
organically grown to combat acne problems.
If you want to take it to the next
level, a juice fast is definitely worth the shot too for a superior acne
You do have good skin underneath,
just feed it with the right substances and you'd see the results for
