Actually no one would need Probiotics if our diet is balanced and organic. The challenge is most of our diet is no longer healthy and aid our system nowadays. For example, the heavily-processed foods that we consume and drugs we take , especially antibiotics, is disturbing our colon balance.
I have done some research and found out that unhealthy intestine system can be the root cause to Acne as well. If you want to find out more, refer to the book, The Clear Skin Diet, written by Alan C. Logan (ND, FRSH) and Valori Treloar (MD, CNS, FAAD).
I had been taking antibiotics (doxycycline) in the past to control my acne condition and I can share with you that taking antibiotics is only temporary because the acne will come back after I stop taking.. and its damaging the nature balance of your colon. One thing that you must know about taking antibiotics is that they will destroy both good and bad bacterias in your system. This means your immune system will be weaken in a long run. But the good news is that with the proper intake of probiotics, you can restore the micoflora balance in your system.
What You Must Start Eating Now!
If you are currently having Acne (cystic etc), candida or allergies condition, I highly suggest you to include the following into your diet:
- broccoli sprouts
The above vegetables are also known as the Great Cleaners to our digestive system. Broccoli and wasabi in particular, are well known to eliminate bad bacteria in the stomach while leaving the good ones behind.
Another thing you may want to include into your diet is yogurt. Having yogurt daily will improve your digestive health significantly. I have friends who never have an ulcer after including yogurt into their daily diet!
My Improved Diet Now
I always include broccoli into my daily meals now but as I don’t like yogurt, I take the Probiotics formulas from Dr. Ohhira.
The reason why I take Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics everyday is to restore back my intestinal balance after taking years of antibiotics. These probiotics have also played a critical role in treating my acne as well. Now my skin is clearer without taking antibiotics for years already. There are tons of testimonials that you can read how people’s acne and other conditions have been treated just by taking Dr. Ohhira’s product. (because of his unique strains of good bacterias in his probiotic.)
You can order Dr Ohhira’s probiotics from iHerb for a reasonable price as well.
