1) Eat plenty of liver.
I thought of this when I learned that Accutane was actually nothing but just a HUGE dose of Retinol, aka. Vitamin A.
No, Carrots don't have that. Liver has that. And I hate liver. But I've forced myself to eat it two or three times a week and my acne got WAAAYY better after a month or so.

2) The second thing is probiotics. They may seriously help. They're not as effective as eliminating dairy, but they can make a huge difference in some cases.
The other information is very good but #1, taking vitamin A solved my light/mild acne during my teens. My father bought my vitamin A supplements and after taking one a day my acne and most body problems were cleared within a week (amazing, my parents were probably paying $300+ a year for meds to clear my skin prior to this).

Nowadays I take liver. It's "real" Vitamin A. Vitamin A from vegetables is BETA CAROTENE which eventually get's converted into your body at vitmain A but at a VERY LOW % for most ppl (hence why it's better you get vitamin A from animal sources... eggs, butter, liver)

Probiotics can also help apparently. "gut health" can actually be very important for your skin health but for me just vitamin A solved everything.



I appreciate man however, unless you had a facial scarr, pock mark, permanent damage, you haven't got the acne type necessary to take accutane. Where I am at: I want a cleanse myself of the damage from accutane, repair hair - dht free conditioners and shampoo, etc I fear hair loss. At a certain point, I'll just buzz, fade or crew cut it. I prefer fixing it as I look better. The fear is if I stop accutane cysts or scar acne could return. I fear being scar face.

The good news? I met a girl through cold approach who is turned on by scars. She said she likes her men rugged and handsome like me :D

I do get low at times. I appreciate advice. Hair advice is appreciated. I am considering rogain and seeing my natural path next week but he is over $100 per hour. Well worth it though!

I feel I've had really good results with the shampoo "Revita" (conditioner as well).

My understanding is that Minoxidil can help you to keep more of the hair you have, and very slightly regrow a bit of hair but nothing substantial.

I also found vitamin B complex with Inistol and PABA as well as fish oil and Evening Primrose Oil (GLA) to be good.

Eat healthy and other than that, don't worry about what you cannot control.  Some girls think bald guys are lame, others think it's hot, others have no opinion and just react to the stimulus in front of them.  Whatever, who cares?  There's so many girls out there there's never an excuse not to get laid no matter what your appearance at all.

Have fun!

Thanks man.

I will check out revita and conditioner. I have primrose oil and a ton of vitamins. I am really health conscious so, I am planning to do a cleanse and make up the difference of whatever accutane did. It sucks but, its definitely did some significant damage. I always swore, I would never be like George Costanza grappling at every piece of hair he has on his head. I would much prefer to do a crew cut like faux hawk or line up and fade. I prefer to keep my hair as is man. A girl complimented me on it today but, I have been self conscious when I am not depressed. When I am depressed, I am simply that guy that just knows he is fucked, and I don't give a damn.

Its not the hair, its not the acne, its not the acne scars or few pock marks I got that depressed me before or the accident that took both my sister and dad's life. Its the combination of all the above. I am sure I could talk to someone but, there is potentially the risk of being put in a treatment center or locked down environment like Sarah Conner in T2. I don't want that. I cannot help my mom or take care of her. With everything that has gone on, its not hard to imagine losing my shit but, I need to climb out of it. I am motivated reading about crisis and leaders that have taken up the fight in dark times. Men like JFK during the missle crissis or men like Hernando Cortez who coined the famous saying, "Burn the ships," he repeated. He then uttered these words "if we are going home, we are going home in their ships". I am inspired by these leaders, men whom have mental health issues, and based upon their own condition, were meant to take up the fight in a specific cause based upon their experience. When I am conscious and fully aware, I rationalize it to myself, if I never had success or a long term relationship before, before the acne, before the facial scars or pock marks even if just a few, before the accident, before the thinning hair or possibly balding scenario, how can I now?

I have personality issues and I know a lot of it has to do with ego and desire for more. I wish for a normal life and in my darkest hours, I wish for having never been, and I wonder if this is the best thing I can offer a possible heir, a son or daughter: that being not giving them life at all. Preventing them from being hurt or harmed. Preventing them from possibly being fucked up like me or experiencing the dark places I find myself in. If I am around mental health issues, I feel like I am at home.



I thought I lost everything. Its my hair now. I wont tempt fate on my ability to move and walk and shit. After my mom, I have got nothign left to lose.  I notice depression coming on when I get insomnia, when I my mind wont rest, when I am easily angered, and when I find reasons I dislike people or I want to avoid friends and the world. I am beginning to just embrace the damage inside and see where it all takes me.I am not full gone but, I do know I am fucked and I am beginning to embrace it. I am fucked up and so what? I had acne. Its gone. I have
a few scars. So what. A girl during cold approach said she thought
scars are hot. My hair could be possibly thinning, balding, gone. So
what? I can fade it, buzz it, get it lined up and faded or a crew cut
faux hawk style.

hair loss main cause is because your thyroid is screwed up. toxins, perservatives, and a bunch of other shit in your daily diet contain shit that block your thyroid from working properly. here's an example, when you eat bread, bread contains something called bromide. now bromide does somethig interesting in the body, it takes up the thyroid receptor area of where iodine is suppposed to go. same thing with with flouride (tooth paste) and chlorine (think tap water). now this combination of toxins + bad GENES = your hair will go bye bye. 

so what do you do?

you have to first change your diet completely and stop eating shit, at least at first you have to go hardcore. 

next, you have to detox and get rid of all the shit in your body. you have to get rid of all the heavy metals in your body (yes, heavy metal toxicity is one of the leading causes of hair loss), you can buy immune boost 77 which is a potent detoxer of heavy metals. you can also buy chlorella which is another excellent detoxer. you have to kill all fungus/bacteria in your body as well check here for more info on that: http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=336 . 

buy krill oil for omega 3 support, you have to absolutely kill inflammation in your diet. this means eating a paleo diet 150%. 

next, you need thyroid support to get it working properly. bad thryoid -> more prone to infection -> buildup of inflammation -> DHT becomes poison.

to get your thryoid working, you need to buy iodine, vit C ,and selenium (all co factors to making your thyroid start working like a champ), on another note... iodine will get you into massive fucking state the first tiem you take it... which makes me think that being in "state" is simply the body have a highly functioning thyroid. check here for how to fix your thryoid: http://healthyfixx.com/plan/6/fixxing-your-thyroid

you also need probiotics and ensure your digestion is working correctly. 

anyway, hair loss can defniietely be reversed if your willing to do the shit above, most americans though are too lazy and will miss their double cheeseburgers too much, but if you want to keep it that's how you have to do it or you risk seriously bad side effects with prescriptions and other shit.. you really don't want all that other crap like rogaine ugh just thinking about what's in there is makign me gag, that shit is going into your damn brain. 

i know all this shit because i got *extremely* sick last year to the point where i could barely function and found out my thryoid was a probable cause only to have regular doctors have no way to help me in anyway shape or form... so i had to research the thyroid and food in general and i did it for basically a year straight everyday for like 3 or 4 horus a day. PM me if you guys got questions.

My situations blows. Shitty genetics meaning, eat low carb, eat low glycemic, eat glutten free diet, eat raw diet = cystic acne and facial scars or pock marks.

Body fat range is below 10%. I am muscular but lean and strong. Despite all that, despite seeing a natural path doctor, despite the supplements, and everything, it all came up short sooner or later. It resulted in cystic or nodular acne. This means, you squeeze it, your face breaks, you lose collagen, it scars. If you leave it alone, it scars. If you apply a topical cream like Clindemycin, steviemycin, differin, Retin-A or anything, surpise, it scars. Its not a pimple inside the skin. Its under your face mask, deep rooted damage, and collagen is permanently lost as the end result. It sucks. I tried raw eating and all sorts of diets. Its gone on decades before I seeked help. Proactive can help people with bp but, the problem is that, its not healthy, and damages the skin. With cystic acne or nodular acne, it does fuck all. The problem with topicals is they damage skin too. You got trauma to the dermis from topical treatment or from the combo of the severe type of acne. I went with the last resort being accutane after all else failed. This did not mean that, its free reign on refined sugar, and my diet went out the window. I am pissed at how shitty my current genetics are.

I have run half marathons before. I play sports. I live an active healthy lifestyle and fuel my body with the right nutrients. Part of my problem is acid reflux, gut problems, low immune system, frequently sick, and shit genetics. I can help myself by fueling my body with the right stuff but, the end result is face scars and balding if not both. I feel fucked a lot of times no matter what I do.

well i know acid reflux is definetely diet relatated and on top that, i'm pretty sure you need more stomach acid to make it go away. i read an article on it, a quick google search brought me to it : http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/25/news-flash-acid-reflux-caused-by-too-little-acid-not-too-much.aspx 

if you have gut problems, you need to address that then. do everything you can to support gut health, you need to be taking probiotics, digestive enzymes with meals, and gut support stuff like gluatmine. 

immune system triggers sounds liek something similar to what i've had. i got something called an IgG food anti body test. ask your naturepath about it ( i saw this type of doctor as well ), it basically takes your blood sample then runs your blood against all the food groups and tells you what you you have an immune response to. 

besides that.. i really can';t comment on the acne issues... but it's generally in good health to do smoe serious detoxing which won't do bad for you. research your shit out on curezone, taht site is like the holy grail of health... do search for acne. 

naturepaths know a lot, but i feel like only more basic stuff.... there's a lot of information out there.

there's a cause to your problem happening and you can solve it through natural treatments.. it's just going to take trial and error to find what it is. trust me, i spent a year figuring out my shit... a fucking year with no help from doctors. i'm not goign to go too deeply into it, but you need to research man. genes can be shut off and turned on through environmental triggers... this isn't the end, it's just the beginning.

I take b complex. bioton, and evening primrose oil and found it to help.

Minox alone will regrow and possibly thicken but most people on this strict regimen find the sheds to come back. When you're only on minox it's very hard to maintain the regrowth because you're not stopping mpb at the source (the conversion of testosterone to dht). The cycles consist of shedding and regrowth but continue on where as if your on finestaride or dusteride as well you keep your regrowth and lessen the sheds.

I want to start off by saying, I appreciate your input, and I am greatful for the support.

Acid reflux has triggers as does acne but, there are somethings you cannot fight such as genetics or life circumstances. You can do your best and take the necessary precautions for getting success. After that, it is up to the gods. I have been on medication since I was 12. I have been a huge fan of Arnold and loved the idea of body building. I wouldn't ever go as far to take steroids or other performance enhancing drugs necessary to compete. Altering my diet, not drinking alcohol, not doing drugs, and watching out for spicy foods helped acid reflux. It does not cure it. If I do higher intensity workout or heavy sprints, I am puking, and out of it for awhile.

The thing that sucks is that, you can take two people, give them steroids, one could look Arnold like, obviously not quite since, it takes years, decades even, and complete decision to get there. One person can get the good genes and the other could end up fucked up, balding, and a complete mess. I have never touched steroids but, I have seen people on t-nation that touched it and ended up with permanent acne, acne scars or pock marks, and even balding. I have playe daround with raw diets, David Wolf, and I continue to educate myself here. A lot of stuff is contradicted. It just sucks being on the chopping block in life. Little by little, I lose part of myself, and i am at the point of embracing being fucked up. I have no where else left to go.


At this point, I have dedicated a signficant portion of my life to health and fitness secondary. Despite all that, its like I don't give a fuck, and doing everything I have has either did little for long term success or I have gone to the extent of doing everything else which has caused bad results as well. Accutane rid me of acne and my skin has never this clear since before puberty. Decades of acne, just basic or mild acne is taxing on the self esteem, and confidence. Well, always believing it will auto correct with proper diet and exercise was faulty. It wasn't until I acknowledge that, I did not have post acne inflammation, that this was a acne scar or pock mark, it depressed me to the point of seeking every alternative possible. Most people cannot grasp around eating a diet that keeps you in a range between 6-8% body fat and lean yet muscular body type can possibly give someone acne still? Not just acne but, provide them with severe forms of acne even if its not a face cluttered with cystic nodular acne.

When you think life cannot get any worse, it usually just turns around, and betters by itself. You still have to try. This goes without saying. I have heard we are not cut differently though, our circumstances may differ. For me, its one fucking thing after another, and its one manic depressing episode after another or until the next fucking thing happens. I am either in a blissful state or in a state of wishing for the end. The simple smack by life would suck and most people move on. For me, its like being it with a nuke. It just fucks me up. Its not the acne, its not the acne scars, its not the drunk driver that ended my sis or dad or thinning, possibly balding hair. Its the fact its never ending. The fact I had reached success in cold approach over the past four years before my life got turned upside down forever. I am depressed clearly but, the biggest thing effecting my game is that lost spark for life. Its hard to hold onto it or express it with my world crumbling around me. It doesn't help I lost family and with my own mental health issues and depression, I wasn't actually fully conscious of what I had until I have lost it all. I know about leaders in times of darkness and I do find it inspiring that, I am not alone, and that there are those worst off who have over come it. I am not looking for someone to rub my head and to tell me it will be okay or for a shoulder to cry on.

My head is full of what the fuck these days. It doesn't seemto get better and while I could get help I don't think I woul dget out or at least not for a long time. My mom cannot support herself so, this is not possible andI have a promise to live up too.

What about dht brought on by accutane?

In my 20s, my skin complexion, and face doesn't look like Beckham so, I would prefer to keep my hair. An older friend of the family kept saying today how handsome I am and asking how many girlfriends do I have? It felt good but, it sucks being this far away from success. The way I can explain it is, imagine or look back at the best times you have had with cold approach pick up. Watch that success disappear but, the life you know it just destroyed and in ruins. I cannot talk to a dad or even friends. Nobody gives a fuck. Everyone is off doing their thing. I find myself resenting people cause, friends will only come around if they need something or if a girlfriend dumps them. I resent that.

I am the kind of person, I would do anything for a friend or family member but, at this point, I feel so cut off and with drawn from people. There is so much talk about health or fitness and the right actions for a giving circumstances. How fucked it is that, we can do everything right, and some idiot can do everything wrong, still live but, take out the good people in this world? It doesn't even stop there cause it causes a chain reaction. My life will never be the same again. My mom is probably as far gone as I am but, when I busy myself or she busys herself, we are taken away from our own personal suffering and hell. It sucks knowing we mostly create this shit though, the pain of loss is very much so real. The fucked up thing is the praying to god and prayer going unanswered. Things do not get better. They get worse and my life is an example of that. I don't even want to test fate or challenge it cause, every time I think it cannot get worse, it does.

My plan of attack is seeing my dermatologist, seeing my natural path, looking at my options, and seeing what works best. I am seeing my dermatologist and I am hopeful I can reverse the effects.
I wont be that guy that goes out approach women with thinning and
balding hair. I must fix this or fade it or get a crew cut.

http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/87675-accutane-gallery/

This is a link to before an after photos. I am sad for these people cause I know what its like. Thank god, not to the extent of some of these pics and my god, I do not know how they had the courage to post pics like that. We could be in a car accident and come out looking better from a wreck then we would after one cystic or nodule break out like in these pics. While the before and after pics are amazing, it doesn't take away from the psychological damage it does to a person, the social awkwardness or even the permant scars, pock marks, indentation that medical science cannot fix. Do not get me started on laser treatment.We aren't perfect. I get it. I can be greatful and thank the lord I am
not in that scenario. I still am in a level 2 phase prior to accutane.
Even then, you can be unfortunate, and get level 3 like pimples, and
they are not leaving you looking attractive or with flawless skin. Not
giving a fuck is the best thing we can all hope for. Its shitty feeling
power less. It fucked my head up just dealing with this bullshit not to
mention everything else going on in my life.



Telling this guy above about how to be healthy and what he should eat wont change feeling and looking like your out of a horror movie. This is extremely damaging to a person's mental health and well being. I am greatful, I had never gone there cause, I assure you, I would not be typing this message. There is no denying it that, this is game over, and that, shit genetics as well as circumstances are outside our control. The most unattractive man on this forum has nothing on this guy. No game can change this. Even once that man loses the acne if at all or ever, do you know what his face will look like afterward? I am just beginning to embrace the damage inside so, what can be done for my hair, I will do, and the same goes for my skin. I am clear for now but, I am off accutane so, its like cheating really. I back step like now venting about how shitty my life is. Other moments, it passes, and I am fine. There have been guys whom have gone on to inspire others but, the site of just basic acne had them upset and worried. It makes me wonder how inspirng would they have been in my shoes or in the shoes of those worse off?


I appreciate the support and advice guys especially until I can get to that place of no return, where I just completely embrace the darkness, and stop giving a fuck. Pull suggested a hair forum I am planning to register on. I am all ears guys.
