I had severe acne. I grabbed for quick fixes, acne medications, which did not "fix" my acne. My acne returned soon after completing every medication I took.
It took being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and environmental sensitivities years later before I began paying attention to the cues my body was giving me. I began addressing underlying causes of my acne and poor health.
Now, fully recovered, abounding in energy and having completely clear skin, I have a new perspective on health and acne management.
