There are different types of acne . The most common acne is the type that develops during the teen years. Puberty causes hormone levels to rise, especially testosterone . These changing hormones cause skin glands to start making more oil (sebum). Oil releases from the pores to protect the skin and keep it moist. Acne begins when oil mixes with dead cells and clogs the skin's pores. Bacteria can grow in this mixture. And if this mixture leaks into nearby tissues, it causes swelling, redness, and pus. A common name for these raised bumps is pimples.
From over a decade of experience in treating acne, I estimate that Leaky Gut Syndrome causes 60-70% of severe acne cases. This is especially true for people who have tried Accutane with disappointing results. Truly healing this condition is complicated and can require several months for complete resolution. However, once the key causes are identified most skin symptoms begin to resolve within weeks. The key factors for treating this condition include the following steps: Identifying and eliminating the original cause of the leakiness, clearing the inflammatory chemicals, repairing the leakiness and clearing any proteins that are still causing immune reactions in the skin.
