As I mentioned in my previous post, my naturopath helped determine that I had a severe vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D deficiency is apparently common for asian women with pale skin, and particularly for office workers that spend all day indoors. Research says that humans only need to spend 10 – 20 minutes in the sun everyday and expose their bare skin to get enough Vit D to maintain healthy levels.
Although I do try to get outside at lunch time, the reality of an office worker is that you go to work in the morning and come back home at night.
I was battling persistent mild cystic acne for about 5 years when I started to crack.
I just got so sick of the bumps, lumps, pus, blood, squeezing, concealing, concealing, concealing. It was literally driving me insane, not to mention wasting my time and money. I also noticed that I had other ongoing health issues that I was SURE was related to my adult acne.
I’m a firm believer that acne is caused internally. To those doctors that told me that acne had nothing to do with hormones or diet, you shouldn’t be a doctor of so-called medicine. Acne is a sign from your own body telling you that something is wrong, and it was through my naturopath that I was able to pinpoint what exactly was wrong, that led me to finally being able to overcome acne to a large extent.
