Written by internationally recognized author andMoreWith 174 scientific references, The Dietary Cure for Acne clearly explains the ultimate causes of acne, and details a dietary program that will begin to clear up your skin within 30 days or less. Written by internationally recognized author and researcher Loren Cordain, Ph.D., this is the only scientifically documented program that directly addresses all four known causes of acne, and the only program shown to clear acne blemishes in a human clinical trial. In chapter four you will learn how The Dietary Cure for Acne heals your skin from the inside by preventing all four known causes of acne. You will learn how the foods you eat affect hormones called IGFBP-3 and IGF-1, and how that affects pore blockage. You will learn how the type of fat you eat can affect bacteria proliferation in your skin. And you will understand how an enzyme called ZAG, that normally works to help keep pores open, is inactivated when you eat certain common foods. Chapter six reveals the 11 types of food to avoid, along with a clear explanation of how that particular food promotes acne. The rest of the chapter provides a specific action plan. The diet is divided into two distinct phases. In Phase 1, which lasts 30 days, you will be attacking the causes of acne with every nutritional tool that can improve acne symptoms. By closely following the diet, your acne will rapidly improve. Phase 2 covers the next 3 months and beyond. Chapter seven is titled The Good Foods, has a sample menu and complete information on all the food that you will be eating on this program. After reading The Dietary Cure for Acne, you will understand how the right foods can prevent the pore blockage, excess oil production, inflammation, and bacterial infection that characterize acne. But most importantly, you will learn specifically which foods to eat, and which foods to avoid, so you can take action and get results.
