Well she started with the cystic Acne in about 11th grade and is now turning 30 this year. We both have IBS and always have our whole lives ( I personally just use the term IBS i believe it can be cured and there is an underlying cause) Her Acne does have underlying emotional issues she will get a new cyst or an old one will reform if she is stressed. I believe we both have hormonal issues, and of course the whole clean colon. What I would like to know is how do you know your colon is clean? And regarding this-- Planetary Formula's Bupleurum Liver Cleanse--what is this for?? Neither of us has tons of money and to be honest she cant afford much. She has never taken the dosha test, she has a+ blood as do I yet I cannot eat vegetarian as I feel sick if I try to eat like that. I was wondering more about supplements to accompany dietary changes etc. Her face is pretty badly scarred but she gets these cysts that hurt terribly and she gets them behind her ears in front of her ears, and she even gets them along her bikini line in the front not to mention on her pretty face. Is it at all possible that genetics can play a role in something like this?? Dont get me wrong here, but are there problems that can't be solved with liver cleanse and dietary changes??
