While it is true that what you eat helps determine your health saying what you eat causes acne is a myth.

Think about the times when acne is most common:

  • Baby acne
  • Puberty
  • Menstrual cycle
  • Pregnancy
  • Adult acne – often during menopause or when under a lot of stress

The ONLY thing ALL of the above have in common is each and every one of them is a time when the body’s hormones are out of balance.

Your liver cleans and detoxifies your blood but at times of hormone overload it cannot keep up and your body will experience problems you don’t usually have.

A healthy diet that gives your liver and the rest of your body the minerals and vitamins they need to operate at their best will help minimize the affects of the hormonal imbalance but it isn’t realistic to expect no changes when your body is stressed.

I hear some of you men saying: “I don’t have the hormone swings kids and women have.” You DO have hormonal swings. When you engage in active sports that are competitive, your testosterone levels will rise. As you reach a certain stage of life, your testosterone levels will naturally fall.

Some men and women live highly stressed lives which can affect hormone levels and the ability of your liver to handle these hormonal changes will depend on your overall health.

Your acne, pimples, zits or whatever you choose to call them are created when your body cannot cleanse itself of the toxins and excess skin oil that creates a breeding ground that allows them to form.

The cause of acne is NOT food or some of the other myths you’ve heard but it is your hormones.

You can treat your acne with an array of commercial products or home remedies. Not all home remedies work for everyone and some even damage the skin instead of clearing up the acne. You might want to consider a product called acne free in 3 days because it has information that has been successfully used by others.

I know you’ve been taught the importance of calcium for good bones but phosphorus is another of the 9 minerals that are used in your bones. 88% of the Phosphorus you have in your body is found in your bones. In addition to being an important part of your bone structure; the remaining 12% of the phosphorous in your body is used by your brain, heart, kidneys, nerves, and teeth.

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the method used to deliver cellular energy. Phosphorous is a vital component in the structural framework of both RNA and DNA. Cell growth and repair uses phosphorous in the cell membrane. The calcium and sugar metabolisms are influenced by phosphorous and oxygen delivery and utilization is affected by the phosphorous attached to your hemoglobin. Phosphorous helps your body maintain the proper pH balance and helps with a number of enzymes and hormones.

Phosphorous is utilized by almost everything that lives so a balanced diet will generally provide all the dietary phosphorous you’ll need with some of the foods sources for phosphorous being: whole grains, seeds, nuts, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products.

We usually excrete excess phosphorous when we urinate so an excess is uncommon. Phosphorous deficiencies aren’t common in properly nourished people but some of the signs of deficiency may be: obesity, weight loss, loss of appetite, nervousness, irregular breathing and fatigue.

Phosphorous, calcium and vitamin D interact with each other so improper levels of one will affect the levels of other two.

Boron’s presence is needed for the body to make several hormones associated with bone metabolism and for you to experience normal growth. Two of the best known hormones that boron helps the body keep at normally balanced levels are estrogen and testosterone.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture conducted a study of post menopausal women and boron supplements. The group that was taking 3 milligrams of boron a day saw a reduction of the amount of calcium they lost through urination dropped by 40% and the amount of magnesium lost through urination dropped by 33% in just 8 days.

Some of the symptoms of a boron deficiency might be insomnia, muscle cramps, bone pain, backache, PMS and menstrual cramps and menopause problems. There are other possible problems that could cause some of these symptoms but boron is one mineral that may help.

Since boron has been shown to help you retain calcium and magnesium it will help in your battle against arthritis, fatigue, migraine headaches, nervousness, fluid retention, depression, hot flashes and backaches.

You can naturally add boron to your diet by eating organic dark leafy vegetables, sesame seeds, cheese, salmon and sardines.

The quality of your life WILL suffer if you are deficient in this mineral.
