Acne and Pimples - Internal Cure

by Dr. Johann Georg Schnitzer


Acne and pimples are not only local events

To suffer as a young person from acne and pimples, not only reduces one's well-being. Objectively it reduces important options decisive for all life: to find one's optimal life partner, to find a good job, to succeed in economy and society.
Whoever struggles with acne and pimples in the face and elsewhere, already knows well the common explanations, how these unwanted and ugly pimples develop, and how their inflammation is caused. Hormones are said to be the reason for increased acne during the age of puberty, and certain bacteria are reasoned to be responsible for the inflammations around the pimples.
Decisive questions remain unanswered: Why do some suffer more, others less from acne and pimples? Especially: Why do many others enjoy themselves with a completely clear and healthy skin, although being in puberty too, and surely having been contaminated with the same bacteria by their friends and classmates?

Common explanation of causes insufficient

The common explanation of acne only considers the local events: How the pores get obstructed as a consequence of accumulation of sebum; how this sebum serves as culture medium for bacteria; how the bacteria then cause inflammation and suppuration.
Consequently, the recommended measures are constrained to local cleansing and keeping open of pores, which daily has to be done. However, this means an only symptomatic treatment, no cure of the acne condition. As soon as the measures are stopped, acne and pimples appear again.
As a young person you might think: Science couldn't yet find more; perhaps it is a genetic condition; I have to resign myself to it; why did it happen to me, why to others not?
Let me give you some advice, which could become important for all your health and life. It is based on my experience of several decades (see Curriculum Vitae<http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/autorcv3.htm>) with health, diseases and their backgrounds, which proved to be very strange in some aspects:
Whenever a problem is described to be unsolvable, a disease explained to be incurable, and only perpetual application of symptomatic measures are offered - ask yourself once:
"CUI BONO?" - "For whom is it good that there is no change?"

"CUI BONO?" For whom is it good as it is?

No doubt, good money is made by producers and merchants with special cleansing essences, creams and soaps for daily treatment of acne and pimples. How big the turnover and economic interests connected to this business are, you can easily estimate. Look once, how many (the percentage) of the youngsters around you suffer from acne and pimples. Get from population statistics how many young people are living in your country in total. Calculate by the percentage found how many of them should suffer from acne and pimples. Find out, how much one young person pays per month to buy those cleansing products. Multiply it with the estimated number of young people suffering from acne and pimples in your country. Now you know the level of economic interest connected with the "status quo" - that everything remains as it is. (The same estimation you could do with some other widespread problems and diseases, catching a shocking insight into abysses of business, moral and ethics of our modern society).
If it would get around to all youngsters suffering from acne, how they could get rid of the bothersome blot by simple and natural measures, get a clean, fresh looking skin, and a better health and vigor in general - all the lucrative acne turnover would break off. Acne is only one example. Similarly it could happen with other diseases, ailments and conditions.
Between respective lobbies (interest groups, pressure groups) whose economic interests depend on diseases, sometimes alliances develop: E.g. between lobbies whose products cause diseases, and others who live from those diseases. E.g. to coordinate public relations strategies: which information should be released to the public, and which others not. (E.g. "not to make the population anxious").
Pressure groups don't hesitate to use "carefully directed misinformation", to protect their economic interests from the truth, which could reduce their turnover, power and influence. Watch out and use your common sense and logic intelligence, whenever you find suspicious news and articles.
Do you want to protect yourself, your family and your friends, from suffering only to become or stay welcome paying members of one or several diseases target groups? In this case, you should start a surf tour on this site. A good survey is offered by "Dr. Schnitzer's Health Secrets Service - Survey and Introduction" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/introe1.html>. An example: Probably you know that hypertension is the main risk factor of civilization, causing the death of every other person by one of the cardiovascular diseases like heart attack, stroke, embolism. But did you know too, that Hypertension is curable for good within only weeks without pills, (please click here: <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/hypertension.html>), and that the cured person leaves at the same time the risk zone of those cardiovascular events?
From this sketch about hidden activities behind the backstage of the "health theater", and options of self protection, let's go back to our main topic: Acne and pimples - internal cure.

Skin important to eliminate toxins

Skin is an important organ to eliminate toxins. The body uses the skin too to eliminate those products of metabolism and poisons, which can't be eliminated the normal way via urine and feces. Most of these products can't be eliminated as active substances. Beforehand, the body must neutralize them by support of the immune system and its cells. This needs partially even inflammation. E.g. it is impossible just "to throw bacteria or virus out of the door as they are". Before, they must be aggressed by antibodies and "eaten up" by macrophages. Those, with the enemies inside their cells, move to the surface (skin), to eliminate the enemy together with themselves: inflammation, suppuration, elimination of pus.

Most toxins in the blood come from the last section of the bowel

It is the digestive system, which takes the food in from environment, assimilates it, and metabolizes it into its own energy and substances of the body. After having passed the wall of the bowel, the substances pass to the lymphatic system and reach the circulating blood, for transport to where they are needed for immediate consumption or storage. From the main part of the bowel, the blood is not directly returning into the main stream; first it passes to the liver which filters out and neutralizes toxins. Only from the last end of the bowel the blood is directly returning into the main stream of the blood.
This has been developed, approved and successful during an evolution of millions of years. Taking a man-appropriate native nutrition the human digestive system is genetically programmed for, there remains no toxic substances in the last section of the bowel, which would need a detoxification by the liver. This human origin nutrition was a frugivorous one. This was proved by Dr. Richard Lehne's "comparing dentition anatomy": Man's dentition is constructed to chew seeds, roots, soft leaves and fruits.
To compare with a typical omnivorous  (=everything, vegetables and meat eater's) dentition, e.g. the wild boar is equipped with: Man's dentition should look like that, if man's genetic nutrition programming would be for vegetables and meat.

In the recent past: Dramatic change of feeding habits

During the last decades feeding habits of man changed dramatically, mainly in the so called highly civilized countries. Man's food now contains a lot of animal products, which are similarly inappropriate for the frugivorous man as for the herbivorous cattle. 
If the herbivorous cattle are fed by animal products, this can result in a degeneration of the brain. BSE, a liquefaction of the brain of cattle, the first time was found in England, after parts from sheep were fed to cows, by scientists' arguments "to improve their protein supply, to increase production of milk and meat". Conclusions might be drawn from this fact to the growing number of Morbus Alzheimer (a degeneration of the human brain) with an increasing percentage of younger Alzheimer patients in a population, parallel to the increasing intake of man-inappropriate animal food (meat etc., recommended by scientists with similar arguments: "to increase protein supply").
In addition, the main part of "modern food" is more or less denatured, by heat and extraction, and refined. Even "native" vegetable foodstuffs contain pesticides, and nitrates from chemical fertilizers or from not aerobic composted animal dung. In the human bowel, these nitrates react with amines (metabolized products from animal protein), so becoming carcinogenic nitrosamines. Nitrosamines are the main cause of intestinal cancer. Intestinal cancer is one of the most widespread types of cancer of all.

Constipation and toxic putrescence ...

This denaturated, inappropriate food mixture causes constipation and toxic putrescence in the final section of the bowel. You can even smell the disgusting foul odor of the bowel gases and fecal matter of people who eat animal food (to compare with: From people who eat only plant food, you nearly can't smell anything). These heavy poisons directly go into the main blood stream, so getting distributed in the complete organism. The body tries to eliminate them in other ways, after constipation is blocking the normal method. Only the skin remains as such an alternative way to eliminate the toxins. That's how the condition for acne and pimples develops.
This is still the truth and fact - in spite of claims (carefully directed misinformation?) saying it "outmoded, because the offending bacteria is now found". If bacteria would be the cause, acne should be a communicable disease. The truth is: It isn't. An important basic finding of medicine is stated by the French medical scientist Professor Claude Bernard (1813-1878): "Le germe n'est rien, le terrain est tout" (the germ is nothing, the substratum is everything).

Hydrogenated (=hardened) fats and animal fats clog the pores ...

It depends essentially on the properties of the sebum, if it accumulates in the pores of the skin or not. If it is composed from animal fat (from cattle, sheep, pork etc.) or chemically hydrogenated (hardened) plant fats, e.g. used in margarines and chocolate, its melting temperature will be above body temperature. Such sebum will get stuck in the pores. Much easier it leaves the pores, if composed from oils from seeds and their germs, which are fully liquid even below body temperature. Additionally, those vegetable oils contain considerable quantities of highly unsaturated fatty acids, supporting the efficient supply of all cells of the body and brain with oxygen.

Animal protein makes the skin hard and rigid ...

Animal protein (from meat, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, ham, bacon, fish, egg, milk and milk products, in most cases accompanied by unfavorable fats) contribute to a hardening process of tissues and cell membranes (example: arteriosclerosis). The skin too becomes harder, less elastic, so the pores are more easily clogged by the hard, un-melted hydrogenated and animal fat. This forces the body to eliminate the accumulated fat cores by force, means by inflammation, suppuration and liquefaction of the tissues around it. Bacteria even are welcome in this situation, accelerating the elimination.

Cure of acne and pimples condition by eliminating the toxin sources in the bowel

The most important measure to create a cure condition for acne and pimples is the change of feeding habits. A change from man-inappropriate, denatured civilization and junk food to a native "civilized origin nutrition". It means, a nutrition according to the human genetic programming, which is a frugivorous one, composed of fresh, alive (and so supplying with life) natural vegetable foodstuffs, as cultivated and offered by agriculture and gardening. Such a delicious and natural nutrition is explained with recipes and 100 color pictures in the book "Schnitzer Intensive Nutrition - Schnitzer Normal Nutrition" (to go to the book review, please click here: <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/sin002.htm>).

Before writing this book, the author stated: "It's a fact, that feeding habits of civilization cause most chronic ailments of civilization. The genetic programming of the human metabolism couldn't adapt to this unnatural, denaturated food. So, the old genetic programming for man's origin nutrition must be functional". This origin nutrition he searched for, found, developed from it a man-appropriate "civilized origin nutrition", and described it in this book with recipes and pictures. Subsequently hundreds of thousands of people are able to recover from chronic diseases and recapture their health with it (13 editions, 144,000 copies sold).

Another helpful measure: A daily clyster with warm water

Another important and helpful measure is a daily clyster (enema) with water of body temperature. The best time is before going to bed in the evening. By adding 0.9% of salt to the water, it gets the physiological salt concentration of blood and tissues. This makes the clyster easily tolerable. To do it, one lays down on the left side. Take only a quantity of water in which is possible without feeling pressure. When you buy the equipment in the pharmacy, ask the pharmacist; he or she will explain to you in detail how to do it.
The daily clyster allows to eliminate every matter by natural way from the final section of the bowel. So all contents of the complete bowel can move on, no constipation can happen, and no toxins can develop anymore. Even, if you feel it is good for you, the clyster can be done in the morning and in the evening, for an unlimited time of days, weeks, months and years, without any disadvantage.

Further possible sources of poisons: Mercury from amalgam fillings in the teeth, palladium from cheap dental gold

Special sources of poisons, possibly also causing acne and pimples, can be found in the mouth: amalgam fillings in the teeth, and dental works made from cheap gold. Amalgam releases permanently traces of mercury, causing many different nervous lesions and physical damages and complaints, including allergies, skin inflammations, eczema and pimples. Palladium proved to be a dangerous poison, after the German social insurances insisted to take cheap gold containing considerable quantities of palladium for dental work, because of cost savings.
Amalgam contains about 50 % of highly poisonous mercury. An electrolytic process releases permanently mercury. It moves into the near tissues, the jaws, the face, the brain (often it causes there depression, fatigue and deficiency of energy). Working in front of a computer screen, increases the release of mercury because of ionization of the tissues and saliva.
If a person carries amalgam fillings in the teeth, it's easily possible that acne and pimples resist to any therapy and health strategy, until the amalgam is removed (under careful aspiration, not to breath in and swallow down vapor and particles of mercury) and replaced by neutral material. In my German book "Zahnprobleme und ihre Überwindung" ("Dental problems and their Solutions" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/zpr001.htm> I described these correlations.

Shortly after change the skin becomes clean and healthy

After a surprisingly short time the skin becomes clean, looking fresh and healthy, as the complete person starts to look. The results are even more: the intellectual and physical performance and vigor increase, the mentality becomes more open, more balanced, more positive.
On the one side this experience is quite new to most people, on the other side it is already reported in the Bible - as a "natural science experiment", as we would name it in our days. It happened, when four young Israelis from royal family were brought to the court of the king Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon (time: in the years 605-562 before Jesus Christ was born). You can read this story in Daniel 1:1-21:
Food, appearance and intelligence of the young sons of Juda
at the court of the king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon
(The nutrition experiment of Daniel) - Dan.1
[1] In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
[2] And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.
[3] And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes;
[4] Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.
[5] And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king's meat*), and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
[6] Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
[7] Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abed-nego.
[8] But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat*), nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
[9] Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.
[10] And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat*) and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.
[11] Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,
[12] Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse**) to eat, and water to drink.
[13] Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat*): and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.
[14] So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.
[15] And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat*).
[16] Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat*), and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse**).
[17] As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
[18] Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.
[19] And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.
[20] And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
[21] And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.
*) "meat" is not the correct translation of the original text; it should be the neutral word "food". The same incorrect translation is found in the English translation of the Genesis; God gave the seeds from herbs and fruits from trees as food to man, not as "meat". This incorrect translation might have contributed to the opinion, that meat could be eaten. In truth, God became very angry, when he had supplied them in the desert with this perfect manna falling down from heaven, and they complained and cried for meat! - You must read once, how God became so furiously angry on them, that he killed many of them before they even could chew the meat fully (4. Mose 11:1-35 Deuteronomy 11:1-35). In our days God punishes the meat eaters "only" by hypertension, heart attack, stroke, embolism, obesity, rheumatism, gout, aggressivity - and e.g. by acne, pimples and an ugly appearance.
**) pulse (leguminous like lentils, chickpeas, peas) - in the old Ethiopian Bible this word is translated with "t'era'tere", which means "raw seeds", expressly not boiled, not roasted; raw, probably slightly germinated by soaking them for some hours in cold water, as Ethiopians in countryside still do in our time, showing the same clear skin, beauty and natural intelligence, as the Bible describes the young sons of Juda had shown. I have seen this by my own eyes, whilst doing scientific studies in Ethiopia in 1983, 1989-90 and 1993, partially in cooperation with the Plant Genetic Resources Centre of Ethiopia, and the Director Dr. Melaku Worede of this institution. There they keep and renew those old varieties of pulses, cereals and other seeds the Bible is speaking about.
More about the surprising health effects of such a natural, man-appropriate nutrition you can read in German in the statements of over 3000 people, published in the "Schnitzer-Report" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/srep001.htm>. Some hundred of these statements, selected by the topic "overweight", are also available in an English translation <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/srepe300.htm>(to go there, please click on one of the two links).

Now: "Action!"

Now you know how to cure the acne and too, recapture your health. Naturally, to get practical results, the new knowledge needs practical action.
Most important: To correct your nutrition. Your best guide will be the English book "Schnitzer Intensive Nutrition - Schnitzer Normal Nutrition" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/sin002.htm>. In case of additional problems (overweight or hypertension), one of the books "Natural Cure of Obesity by Health" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/noh001.htm> or "Hypertension Causes & Cure - Life Threatening Risk Factor 1 Now Curable!" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/bhd001.htm> will supply you with the knowledge how to overcome those ailments. The books you need you could order via Internet by clicking here.
The germinable cereal grains (naked oats, wheat, spelt) to grind freshly - most important component of a healthy nutrition - you can buy in one of the health food or whole food stores. There you will find also different grinders with milling stones, to buy an appropriate one for your household. In such stores they have too pulses to germinate, and fresh salads and vegetables from natural cultivation without chemical fertilizers or pesticides, to complete your healthy nutrition.
An "irrigator" you can buy in a pharmacy; they will explain how to use it, or give you a written instruction with it.
Now you are ready for take-off: "Action!" Start your new life.
Soon your friends will be surprised and ask you, what you did, to look so good and healthy all of a sudden. They will notice your new handsome appearance. Probably soon you will remark, how your physical and mental performance are improving. A complete new feeling of life and natural happiness will take you over, when your body each day gets all that your body needs.

Pass your new knowledge on to others

Soon you will be able to confirm by your own experience, how this disagreeable acne and pimples have disappeared, being replaced by a clear face and skin and a beautiful appearance - and how you feel better and healthier now in general. Don't keep this knowledge to yourself - pass it on to others!
This doesn't only refer to the knowledge how to overcome acne and pimples. It means nearly all other health problems, ailments, complaints and conditions too. Very probably some of your nearest friends and colleagues suffer from different problems, e.g. from hypertension and the disagreeable "side effects" of the usual pills prescribed to them.
Pass your helpful source of knowledge on to them - give them the internet address of "Dr. Schnitzer's Health Secrets Service <http://www.doc-schnitzer.com>, or its English introduction <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/introe1.html>. To those who suffer from acne and pimples, give <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/acne.html>.
On the page "Do your friends a favor" <http://www.dr-schnitzer.de/linkdrs3.html> you find texts, links, pictures and banners to use them on your homepage and your e-mails.
Perhaps you would like just to print out the appropriate information and pass it on to your friends. They will be grateful to you - and I'm grateful to you for your assistance in this concern.

P.S. (1) A common anti-acne drug is suspected of causing depression. The German news agency DPA reports this (Meldung vom 2002-01-09 16:31:00, eca198 4 x 206 ccccb dpa 513, US-Plane):

15-year-old suicide pilot was taking possibly depressant drug

Washington (dpa) - The 15-year-old Florida boy who flew a plane into a high-rise Tampa bank building was believed to be taking an anti-acne drug suspected of causing depression, media reports said on Wednesday.

Authorities discovered a prescription for the drug, called Accutane, at the boy's home. The drug has been under congressional investigation. A Democratic congressman's 17-year-old son who was taking Accutane also committed suicide, and there have been dozens of other suicide cases believed connected to the drug.

Bishop left a suicide note saying he acted out of "sympathy" with terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, police have said.

The boy, who had been taking flying lessons for two years, was the only casualty in the incident. The Bank of America building remained standing. Police said Bishop had been dropped at the St. Petersburg- Clearwater Airport by his grandmother on Saturday afternoon to take his "regular private flying lessons". He talked to his flight instructor, then boarded the plane and took off without clearance or the instructor's knowledge and later flew the Cessna 172 into the building.
