The Real Reason Your Acne Is Out of ControlWritten by Burgundy Shank
There are many opinions on what exactly causes acne and how to best prevent breakouts. If you look on web, youíll find lots of conflicting information and expensive products that donít put you any closer to your goal of blemish-free skin. As an adult with previous acne problems in childhood, I can tell you what worked for me and what has worked for others that I have consulted about adult acne.
Acne is believed by many people to be caused by improper hygiene, but main culprit is an excess of sebum, which is natural oil that your skin produces. Why do some people produce more sebum than others? In many cases it has to do with improper diet, hormonal imbalances and over-cleansing of skin. Once skin begins producing too much sebum pores become clogged, allowing them to become infected and inflamed, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and painful red bumps. If these symptoms are not treated properly, they can cause pain and scarring, leading to discomfort and embarrassment.
First of all, all things regarding your body stem from a well balanced diet. You can use most expensive, most researched products on planet and youíll be wasting your dollars if you do not pay attention to what types of foods you put into your body. Most people know that they should be drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily, avoiding sweets and refined carbohydrates, and consuming as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible. At same time, some healthy foods can aggravate acne breakouts due to food allergies. For example, many people have skin problems when eating oranges. Different foods will affect people individually, and keeping a journal of what you ate coupled with your symptoms may be helpful in determining which foods you should avoid.
Hormone imbalances come frequently for women before their menstrual cycle, but these fluctuations can be controlled by a balanced diet as well. Certain herbal supplements may also help to level out uncontrollable hormones, such as black cohosh, dong quai, or Siberian ginseng. Soy is especially good for many women in helping with hormone balancing for both menstrual and menopausal women. I highly recommend soy in any of its forms (tofu, edamame, miso, tempeh, etc.) not just for women, but as a healthier lifestyle choice that will dramatically improve overall health and nutrition, and therefore assist with acne concerns.
Serzone Side Effects Lead to Serzone lawsuitsWritten by Margaret Wommack
Serzone is a prescription medication that is given to patients who are seriously depressed (Dysthymia,Major Depression, and Bipolar Disorder) to alleviate symptoms of depression such as sleep and eating habits, changes in weight, coordination, fatigue, unjustified feelings of worthlessness or suicidal thoughts which prohibit normal functioning. It balances levels of serotonin and norepinephrine in brain which doctors think will help alleviate symptoms of depression much like phenylpiperazine antidepressant, Trazodone (Desyrel).
Between nerve endings in brain, there are synapses. When a signal is transmitted, you feel it when chemicals are released from one nerve to another. Seratonin is a brain chemical associated with happiness. When these chemicals are released they are either taken in by next nerve, thus continuing signal, or if next nerve doesnít absorb them and they are left in synapse, nerve that released them will re-absorb them and signal doesnít pass. Some antidepressants work by blocking reabsorbing (reuptake) of Seratonin by releasing nerve. That means that more Seratonin stays in synapse for a longer amount of time and hope is that it increases chances for it to be absorbed by new nerve which, in case of Seratonin, would continue signal of happiness.
