Heads up–this post will talk frankly about periods and woman stuff! (you’re welcome)

Backstory on my Health + Acne

For as long as I can remember (approximately age 12), I have had debilitating menstrual cramps. Along with the cramps was hormonal (cystic) acne. I was able to balance + heal my skin through use of an awesome supplement called Estroblock. (you can read that full post here).

I only took the product for about 8 months and it did it’s job in that time. It works by helping your body get rid of “bad” estrogens in your body. These can disrupt your endocrine system, which is the system responsible for dispersing those little chemical messengers telling your body how to operate.

While my acne cleared up and I felt encouraged by that, my periods were still heavy and painful. I tried every natural pain remedy I could think of:

-Drinking only green juice the days leading up to my period

-Experimenting with eliminating certain foods (coffee, dairy, gluten, etc.)

-Changing up my exercise routine

Nothing took the pain away.

Seeing a Naturopath (Integrative Natural Medicine Doctor)

Since I failed so many times at trying to help myself, I felt like it was time to seek the help of a natural medicine doctor. I went to Cura Integrative in Overland Park, Kansas (HIGHLY recommend them).

To start, they performed a biofeedback test on me which revealed:

-Very high levels of blood toxicity (heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, mold, environmental toxins)

-Parasitic infection (people with high levels of heavy metals are more susceptible to this)

-Food sensitivities (often linked to and caused by heavy metal toxicity)

-Egg, Nuts (including coconut + peanut), Gluten, Dairy, Corn, Soy, Rice

Third Phase: Emotional Healing + Liver Support

-I had a check up biofeedback test at this point which revealed that I was making a TON of progress. My food sensitivities to gluten, dairy, almonds and rice went away. Because of the intense detoxing I had been doing, though, my liver was overwhelmed (stagnation) and it needed some help + support.

-Though I didn’t hold it in my conscious mind, I was dealing with a lot of emotional trauma + sadness, which was manifesting itself throughout my body. I had forgotten how your emotional and mental state can impact your physical health! Amazing. Great reminder. I downloaded several meditation apps and have made it a daily ritual to calm my mind.

Products Used (pictured below):

Livaplex

Immuplex

Viral-fuge

-Quicksilver Scientific:

Liposomal Methyl B-Complex

I still have a few weeks left of this last wave of this detox protocol. You can expect me to come back to this post and update it with where I’m at, how I’m feeling.

Thank you for journeying with me and listening to my experience. I sincerely hope it helps guide you if you feel less than your best. This trek has been paramount in the big scheme of my life. If you have any specific questions, I’d love to chat! Just comment below.

Make Good Use of Your Pulse,

Estroblock Pro Triple Strength Pro Review + My Acne Journey

Estroblock Hormone Balancing Supplement

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

About Estroblock:

“Fight Acne

Estro Block clears toxic estrogens, while restoring good estrogens. Most acne is caused by toxic estrogen buildup. These synthetic estrogens also cause cancer.

Detoxify Hormones

Pesticides, pollution, high fat foods, and plastics of all types convert into these toxic cancer causing estrogens. Defend yourself with Estro Block

Reduce Fat

One of the most common symptoms of toxic estrogens is stubborn fat that just won’t go away. These synthetic estrogens cause fat to build up in a synthetic way that does not respond to natural methods for weight loss.

Estro Block Pro

Is 3x more potent than the original Estro Block!”

My Description & Thoughts on Estroblock:

I have tried MANY supplements in hopes that they would target and eliminate my acne (that I believed to be hormone related–and potentially caused by prior synthetic birth control use). There are so many products similar to Estroblock out there (as they depict in the above diagram) that are not as high of a dosage, are in a form that is not readily digested, or are not as high quality as Estroblock. Let me just cut to the chase and say this:

I believe that Estroblock (a non-gmo, plant derived supplement) is the single most effective supplement I’ve ever taken for my acne.

I have written a more in depth diary of my struggle with acne in an earlier post, which you can read here.

I did not document my skin progress month by month, but I did take a picture when first starting Estroblock–which shows the areas of my face that I struggled with most. (As embarrassing as it is to share, it’s worth it knowing that I might be helping someone progress on their own skin journey).

November 2013/Approx. May 2014

Side Note: I was eating very sensibly and healthily and still struggled with these blemishes.

I realize that the lighting is different in each of these photos, and they are not the best side-by-side comparison. However, I can assure you that there’s a big difference. All I deal with now are acne scars and the occasional pimple or two from my menstrual cycle (which are few and far between).

Like I’ve suggested here, it has taken my skin (and hormones) several months to get back on track. It was not an immediate fix. It’s important to note, though, that most natural remedies that involve balancing hormones are never going to be a quick fix. Your body needs time to rebalance itself. This route is better than taking a prescription acne solution because it truly gets to the root of the problem and addresses it in a natural manner, rather than using chemicals to solve the problem in the short run.

I can’t recommend this product enough to those that struggle with hormonal acne–I’m so glad I discovered this product and I’m happy to share it with all of you. I would say that Estroblock Pro is the best bet for those that have acne that looks similar to mine (around the chin and jawline). You are likely to see more thorough results by taking the Pro version. Cost-wise, Estroblock is not cheap. It’s $39 dollars a bottle and that lasts you a month. HOWEVER, at the risk of sounding like I’m preaching–I have to say…This is an investment in your health (and for many, your confidence). To me, it is well worth the money. Many other cheaper brands that you will see are cheaper for a reason–they are not non-gmo. Also, once you get your hormones back on track, you are able to wean yourself back down to small dosage of Estroblock (especially if you are eating a clean, plant-rich diet).

How I’m Curing My Acne

This is a post that I am writing on a whim. It has been a long time coming.

A big thank you to Tracy, creator of TheLoveVitamin.com who has inspired me to share my own thoughts and battles with acne. (and–what a cool name for a blog!!!)

There’s nothing pretty, glamorous, or healthy feeling about having acne. It’s almost something we all ignore in conversations because to an extent, it’s embarrassing. It is especially frustrating for me to struggle with mild acne at this point amidst all of my efforts to put good things onto and into my body. You would think that exercising regularly, eating a mostly organic diet and using only organic skin products would be the fix, right? Well, I am here to tell you that for me, it has not quite done the trick.

Food & Acne

I came to this conclusion after doing several things dietarily, to no avail. I have done juice cleanses, segments of time without gluten/bread and dairy, limiting sugar, and drinking ALL KINDS of homemade elixir concoctions. I have omitted and added countless numbers of foods in hopes of seeing some progress in my acne healing. Though I have seen slight improvements, these changes have not cleared up my skin.

Not to mention, I’m NOT perfect. I enjoy eating out with my family on a somewhat regular basis. I enjoy pizza, greasy foods, cheesy foods and sugary foods. There is something about being uptight about food that is off-putting to me. Coming from an organic fanatic, that might be surprising. Something that I can tell you about me is that I do not advocate having an unhealthy relationship with food. Eating organic 80% of the time does not mean you have to be a crazy, neurotic, obsessed individual who can’t live freely in regards to food. It’s truly about achieving balance. If you are SO stressed about what you are eating all of the time, then you might as well flush all of your efforts down the toilet. Seriously. No really, seriously. The trauma that your body endures when it is stressed causes all of your vital body functions to take a back seat. This means that your body is not performing like it should be. This is why stress is the cause of so many ailments and illnesses.

It shouldn’t be a badge of honor to worry about food. It doesn’t make you more responsible or accountable. It makes you increasingly sicker.

The KEY is to find balance. Achieve that balance. Live that balance. Remind yourself of that balance. Write “balance” on your refrigerator to keep your mind healthy about food.

True Causes of Acne

What makes the most sense to me is that acne is the result of imbalances within our bodies. You are not SUPPOSED to have acne. It’s not something that you are supposed to live with and endure. It’s a sign that something is off. That’s not to say that it is always easy to figure out WHAT is off. However, it seems there are some common themes in regards to what is at the root of acne:

-Hormone Imbalances (sometimes caused by prior or current birth control use)

This Helps: Taking a supplement called Estroblock. It targets “bad” estrogen, is non-gmo and I recommend the Triple-Strength for acne-sufferers. Also, Chaste Tree Berry (also called Vitex Berry) helps regulate progesterone. Having an imbalance of these two hormones in your body will often result in acne.

-Digestive issues that are causing bad bacteria to effect your skin

This Helps: Ingesting Apple Cider Vinegar, a Probiotic supplement and Pau D’Arco bark. You can find all three of these at most health food stores like Whole Foods.

-Liver Malfunction

This Helps: Taking these supplements: Burdock Root, Milk Thistle, or Liv-Tox (can be taken in place of the other two).

-Ingesting too much sugar and/or processed foods

This Helps: Look to good fats & protein for fuel. Excess sugar causes an increase in internal acity (acne is one results of an acidic body.)

-Over-washing & over-moisturizing your face (this is one that many do wrong–I have been guilty of it)

This Helps: Give your skin a break! Get past the need to wash your face several times a day and let your skin do what it knows how to. Your skin knows how to regulate itself. I even suggest going without ANY face products. No cleansers, moisturizers, serums–nothing. (I know, this is suprising coming from an organic skin product enthusiast, but there is such a thing as too many products). Splash, cool, filtered water onto your face every 2-3 days (once daily at most) and only lightly exfoliate once a week tops! It might sound crazy if you’re been religiously practicing your skin routine for years. If you are still reading this, though, chances are that routine has not cured your acne. Give this new routine a try and you will be surprised at how your skin improves. Some, like Tracy, even suggest to do the Caveman routine: No water, no washing, nothing at all.

-Too much stress!

This Helps: exercising (running, yoga, resistance training), and make some time for YOU. You + nature – cell phone is even better. Remind yourself to not focus and dwell on your current acne. Accept it as the beginning of a healing process.

Keep in mind

If you start to take these supplements, BE PATIENT. Your body will take time to recalibrate and rebalance itself. It is undoing several years of imbalance and damage that your body and skin have endured. I, myself, have been taking Estroblock, Vitex Berry, Burdock Root, Milk Thistle and Pau D’Arco root for almost a month now. I am about to start taking LivTox in place of the Burdock Root & Milk Thistle. I have also very recently stopped using face products and am ONLY rinsing with filtered water every day or two and exfoliating with a Dew Puff once a week max.

I will keep all of you posted on my progress after a few more months of using these supplements. I encourage you to check out Tracy’s blog, TheLoveVitamin.com for a ton more in depth posts about acne and healing it. Here is one of my favorite posts and where I have learned about these awesome supplements.
