Thanks for your input. I kind of assumed that the detox protocol that curezone outlines would work for just everyone with acne, but yes I can see how candida and leaky gut can cause it. Did you address your candida and leaky gut problems, yet you still have acne? I agree that addressing the cause(s) would be the cure for acne. However, I still have a hunch that curezone's protocol should work for a lot of people. I guess I'm just biased towards it because it worked so wonderfully for me.
Just a couple questions because I'm curious as to what exactly you did as far as colon cleansing. What did you do for colon cleansing and for how long? Were you certain that your colon was absolutely cleaned out, prior to beginning the liver flushes, and how soon did you start the flushes after completing the colon cleanse? Also, were you successful in getting out a lot of stones with the flushes?
I did 3 different kinds of Colon Cleanses over a period of 1 year. I did "Cleanstart" for 1 month. Then I did a recipe that someone gave me which included aloe vera juice, chlorophyl and cascara sagrada for 2 months. I took a break for several months. Then I did "Colonix" for two months. Total, it was 5 months of colon cleansing. Immediately after my last colon cleanse, I started my first liver flush--by immediately I mean within 1 week. I always got out lots of stones. My first few flushes produced tiny stones, lots were tan and light green in color. Around my 4th through 6th flushes, I produced my most stones ever and largest ever and a lot were dark green in color. Then, the amount of stones I would get out started declining from flushes thereafter, and thats when my Acne and oily skin started vanishing and by my 8th flush, I knew it was working. I did a follow-up flush 6 months later and only got out a few stones. That last flush was a little over a year ago. Acne still has not returned all this time. However, I noticed my face is now oilier than it used to be. I haven't been able to flush because I was pregnant all last year and now I'm nursing, but otherwise I would do a flush, and I think it would decrease my oiliness. Even though its more oily now, its nowhere near as oily as it was when I did have acne.
By the way, I love mercola.com and paleo diet. I just don't think that would have been enough to cure acne. I needed something drastic, like curezone's detox protocol.
