20 Year old ready to get rid of acneHello All,
My name is Zach and I have had acne off and on since age 14...when I was around 16 I lived in costa rica and ate and lived more naturally, My diet consisted of mostly rice and beans and my face stayed clear...around 17 my acne came back. at age 19 I moved to Costa Rica again and followed a similar diet to the one I was following at age 16 and I still had serious acne.
I am now 20 and ready to GET RID OF THIS ACNE. I do not like harsh chemicals as I feel they are a resisting force rather than a healing force. I want to heal my acne not kill it off. As a topical solution I use honey, tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar...the tea tree oil has helped clear up the acne on my cheeks and around my mouth. I break out most around my forhead...the closer you move towards the eyebrows the more you will see cystic acne, I even get it between my eyebrows. The topical solutions do not seem to improve the acne that is above my eyeline so I have to assume it is more of an internal problem I am experiencing.
A little background info: Since age 17 I noticed asymmetry in my body and increasing weakness on the right side of my body. by age 18 I stopped working out and playing basketball because I felt that it was hurting more than helping and while lifting weights I felt pain but not the good kind of pain..more like a nerve pain. I am now 2 and experience noticable asymetry in my body and muscle wasting to a noticable degree on my right side. I feel as though my rightside is seperate from the left as in they both feel completly different. The right side of my head feels different from the left..and as I said feels weak and tires easy. This is not why I came here though...I am just telling you this because it might be related to my acne problem assunming this issue is neurological and is effecting my organs.

19. How does it feel like?
It feels ok because I know on a spiritual level I manifested these experiences to learn from them. We create our reality so I am humbled by myself. At the same time the ego resists the experience and wants to be well
20. What comes to your mind?
I think about leaving this body frequently. I am not suicidal or depressed but simply tired with carrying this heavy weight with all its aches and pains. I feel limited yet free of the average mans daily struggles. I feel humbled by this experience and able to see the bigger picture more clearly. I feel sometimes mentally limited because I feel like my brain chemistry has changed in the past few months...coordination on right side decreased.
21. One situation that had a

2 years ago I had what I refer to as an awakening to a more real reality...I have come to realize that we are eternal beings all part of one infinite conciousness and life is infinite and we create our experiences.

freeing yet it has been a heavy weight to carry so to speak. I find myself having a more difficult time coping with the 'average man' and society as we know it.

a feeling of freedom yet isolation to some degree even when socializing.

contemplation, reclusivness to a degree...low physical activity...deep thinking, fairness and the desire to give and be balanced.

Dairy, Animal Flesh possibly excluding fish...and possibly some other foods that I am not aware of
31. Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not , you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections.
I am overall a quiet attentive, compassionate person. I am aware of very fine detail that many aren't. I am quiet and sometimes shy in large groups yet I am social and do not come across as socially akward in the least bit. I have few freinds because I find myself seeking true freindships with people that are like me. I am good at voicing my thoughts in ways others understand. I spend alot of time alone and tend to be spacey...I sometimes look for ways to escape the known reality through music, books, marijuana or alchohol and halucinogens on occassion. I am a spiritual person who seeks balance and control over my emotions. I am naturally sensitive to others emotions, and thoughts and am more easily (or was) offended than others. I am a very deep thinker. I experienced a period of depression when I was 14 but ever since realizing who I am as a being and not the body I have not been able to acheive depression and dont go lower than discouragment, emotionally speaking. I am gentle. I love animals. I am more low energy yet I was very physically active in the past years I played sports and lifted weights. I have always been self concious about my face yet I am a good looking fellow...I have had the fear of not blending in with other humans and sometimes I dont identify with the average human and feel like an outsider, naturally.
32. Aggravation (increases-time, season,)& Amelioration (Decreases)
no subject to seasonal change. I am most at peace and inspired at night time and in the afternoon.

Why, specifically, do you suggest avoiding raw onions and garlic? and why do you reccomend not touching the pill with your hand?
