Why do Antibiotics help, but only temporarily?

Most people think that getting acne is a normal part of life. But why do some people get acne when others do not? Commercial treatments for acne only focus on keeping the skin clean and clearing clogged pores. This sounds like a good approach but that technique doesn’t necessarily work for everyone!  Some people have to obsessively clean their skin to get rid of acne whereas that method doesn’t work on some!

The real problem with this approach is that acne develops from inside the body, not outside. The skin is an organ, and it is an organ of elimination. We eliminate waste products through our skin, just as we loose minerals when we sweat.  Too many toxins inside the body can lead to inflammation in the skin resulting in clogged pores and acne. In order to treat the cause of the acne we must first remove the toxins.

Acne and other blemished skin conditions are mainly caused by food allergies. Hormone imbalances may also play a role, but are largely over-rated. Fortunately both are treatable.

The inflamed and clogged pores of acne become infected. This is what causes puss. Antibiotics may help treat this infection. Unfortunately, acne comes back when the antibiotics are discontinued because the underlying cause that leads to inflammation and clogged pores, toxins in the body, still exists. So as a result of this, we can’t rely or constantly re use antibiotics because they only work for a short period of time. The best solution is to eliminate foods until you start seeing an improvement (start with removing sugary foods, trans fats and dairy products).
