Moving right along through this heavy metal detox. The detox is based on the Medical Medium’s food suggestions for eliminating heavy metals from the body. Read my post from Day 1 for the full list of ingredients. Here are my updates from Day 5 and 6.
Detox: Day 5
No symptoms, no additional breakouts. Progress! I’ve been experimenting with two different natural solutions to deal with the breakouts.
First up, Burt’s Bees Acne Solutions Targeted Spot Treatment. This stuff is very strong and burns a bit when you apply it. Beware if you have very dry, sensitive skin. I made sure to apply only to the individual eruptions with a q-tip avoiding all other areas of my face. No need to mess with the clear areas. Overall, it was a little too strong for my sensitive skin.
Detox: Day 6
I think I’ve made it past the initial phase of detox reactions. All that’s left is to clear up the remaining breakouts on my face. They are slowly going away on their own but I wouldn’t mind them going a little faster. 😉
Today I tried a more natural approach using Manuka honey. I was inspired after reading this article: This Natural Product Cleared My Cystic Acne for Good. Please note, regular processed honey likely won’t do the trick as it doesn’t contain the same healing properties as raw or Manuka.
The Mauka honey didn’t burn or irritate my sensitive skin in the slightest. I noticed one of the eruptions diminished significantly after the application. By the next day, it was just about gone. This obviously isn’t a scientific study but it helped enough for me to continue to test this theory out. Have you tried this before?
One more day left to go!
