Acne Treatment Series

Dermatologists, Skin Specialists or Estheticians?

Are you confused with the terms above? Who do you see for your skin problems? Should you see your regular doctor? Should you go to a beauty centre and consult your esthetician?
The main difference between a dermatologist and an esthetician is the training background for each profession. If you go see a dermatologist or a skin specialist, you're seeing a doctor. This means that he or she completed medical school and a few years of residency at a medical facility. Dermatologists have received additional specialized training and education in treating skin related problems.
A dermatologist or a skin specialist is trained to: Diagnose and treat all skin disorders, abnormalities and diseasesWrite prescriptions based on knowledge of skin care pharmaceuticalsPerform minor surgery on skin abnormalities
An esthetician or beautician is a person who has been trained in beauty care. This includes facial massage, manicure, pedicure and some basic medical science like anatomy and phy…

One Day MD series


This 'one-day-MD' medical series is dedicated for the everyday layman - easy to understand and digest. And no, it is not about any mundane medical terminology or any boring lecture on jargons and stuff the white-coated smarties are known for. The Web 2.0 no doubt has provided lots of information out there, but the issue of understanding what you are reading and also confusion remains. I hope this series would resolve part of your problem.
Perhaps you fall into one of these interesting categories: You've got a medical problem and you are just not sure how to move forward? You have a lot of healthcare-related questions but do not want to see a doctor just to ask questions, which you feel, may be silly. You wish you could take up a course, one that is affordable and at your own time and pace. You have been surfing to various healthcare-sites but end-up feeling frustrated with more questions. You realize you need something that will provide you with an o…

Acne Cures: Is there a Natural Acne Cure that Works?

Acne Cures: Is there a Natural Acne Cure that Works? Are there natural acne cures that work or is it a new age myth? Is there a permanent cure for acne or are all acne sufferers sentenced to the Sisyphean battle of tackling the ‘on the surface’ symptoms? Is there an honest, natural and safer alternative to the endless use of over the counters and to the nasty side effects inflicted by conventional drugs, creams and topical acne treatments?

Most dermatologists and other western medicine followers have already answered that controversial question by claiming that acne, among other diseases simply cannot be cured.

There are 2 reasons for that:

1. Most dermatologists don't even know what the real cause of acne is. It's amazing but true. They are highly familiar with the symptoms of acne and they specialize in tackling the 'on the surface' symptoms, but unfortunately they cannot tell you what the internal conditions are that cause your acne to form in the …

Acne Diet Link Exposed: Is There an Acne Cure Diet that Works?

Acne Diet and The Money Factor: You Can't Sell a Healthy Diet Ask any medical doctor if there is a connection between diet and acne and almost all of them will claim there is none. Quoting from the Journal of the American Medical Association: "Diet plays no role in acne treatment in most patients…even large amounts of certain foods have not clinically exacerbated acne".

With years of medical education and clinical experience behind these claims, how can we the simple folks who suffer from acne challenge these statements and think otherwise? The answer is: doubt. Doubt, if its stays in the borders of reason, can open many doors otherwise will stay forever shut. Believe it or not, doubt can change reality. Doubt can cure your acne and doubt can even save your life.

Fact is, countless of acne sufferers have reported that their acne seemed to get worse when they consumed certain foods and saw dramatic positive change over their acne condition when they elimin…
