Jacklyn suffered with acne for over a decade until she finally found Medical Medium information. Watch her share how this information has helped her heal. Thank you Jacklyn for sharing your story and inspiring so many!
Acne is caused by streptococcus bacteria that has strengthened over time from antibiotics, which you may have taken at some point in your life or been exposed to unknowingly through food and water supply.
Streptococcus nests into the liver and when the liver and lymphatic system weaken, strep can travel and reach the skin. Sebum oil is produced to try to stop the strep from causing harm to your skin.
Because the strep has been well fueled from foods it feeds on, like dairy, eggs, gluten, canola oil, corn, and soy, along with a plethora of toxins in the liver, it is extremely vital at this point. The sebum oil isn’t enough to stop it. Now the skin’s immune system kicks into higher gear, prompting the production of sebum oil at even larger volumes as a last attempt to trap the bacteria and safeguard your skin.
When strep is strong, it fights and survives the lymphocytes and killer cells just below the epidermis. It climbs up into the outer layer of your skin and cystic acne results. Outbreaks can be mild or devastating. So much goes into what determines a mild versus aggravating versus extreme case of acne, including how many strains of strep you have, how many toxins such as heavy metals are present in the liver and subcutaneous tissue for strep to feed on, how many antibiotics you have used or otherwise ingested over a lifetime, what happened before your lifetime that you inherited, what kind of adrenaline surges you experience in daily life, pesticide exposure, and what your diet’s like.
