My daughter is a 12 yr old B+, just like her mom. She has been suffering with acne for two years now. She started to change hormonally about two years ago and has been dealing with this acne for so long now it seems. She sees a dermatologist whom is a friend, and she has been taking  a low dose antibiotic now for two years, uses proactive and a special acne cream from the dr.  I would really like to get her off of these things because I am sure her immune system is paying the price.

The reason she takes the antibiotic is to help with the bacteria on the surface of the skin. This is all she can take, due to her young age. She can not take regular acne medicine because she still has some baby teeth. Apparently acne medications will leave yellow spotting on adult teeth buds, so those medications are not safe for her yet.

Here's my question... are there foods that I can give her in her B diet that will help her acne condition? I would do anything to help her. It's so hard for her and for her self confidence which is lacking big time.

And here's another question....I came across a herbal remedy from BELL Master Herbalist Series. It is #60 "Help for skin disorders (acne, eczema and psoriasis)". Here are the ingredients (the only one I found in her food list was sarsaparilla which is a neutral) .....Oregon grape root extract, bitter sweet extract, sarsaparilla, juniper berries, neem extract.

I read the reviews on it and it seems like it starts working pretty quickly. It claims to be a blood cleanser and purifier. Many have used for their teens and their acne conditions, and claim that it cleared it up right away.

I would LOVE some advice here......What do you think?????

I am a B positive and I had bad acne in my teens. I was a "late bloomer" in terms of my acne. It started around age 15 or 16 when my menstrual cramps got really really bad. I went to dermatologist after dermatologist and got put on oral contraceptives around age 18 (my mom did not want me on them earlier). None of the antibiotics, retin-A, or oral contraceptives helped.

I had asthma since I was a child and it became adult asthma. I had severe allergies, too. It turns out the acne, asthma, allergy and menstrual cramps were all related - MAGNESIUM deficiency! If you read the BTD book, type Bs need to make sure they get enough magnesium.

You may want to give your daughter extra magnesium. I experienced great recovery from my allergy/asthma from the BTD that I went to GTD. I have a feeling your daughter's acne may benefit from the BTD/GTD.

My skin is very dry and breaks out into hives, etc. very easily, too. Since the diet, my skin is less sensitive. If it is any consolation for your daughter, my acne went away (albeit in my mid 20s) but I have absolutely no scarring! I sympathize with your daughter because I was teased during high school and it really hurt my self-esteem. Please tell her to hang in there and that things will get better! *hugs!*


Simplifying my life. Only the best for my body, mind, and soul!

Instead of using antibiotics, you might want to consider probiotics.  I know some people who have used probiotics with success.  It would also be much better for her immune system, too.

Have you tried teatree oil?  I know some people who like that as well.

Give your daughter a big hug!!!

getting her on the plan will help her skin
also have her secretor status checked to fine tune her plan
follow the skin protocol periodically

Ditto with Patty H. probiotics and tea tree
tea tree and lavender (plus blue chamomile oil in case of strong inflamation, redness) this should help really 30 drops in 1 oz of almond, olive or jojoba oil and 3/5 drops of the mix on her face morning and evening.
I suggest also less sugar possible and no pork, ham, bacon, french fries.
Take care to have in her diet just good fats, butter , ghee and EV olive oil , no others, as possible with a teen-ager.

Well you know MY comments are going to include sugar.

reduce sugar, fizzy drinks, fruit juices will probably be enough. but chocolate maybe too.

but antibiotics for 2 years - did your doctor forget to stop???

And acne cream at age 12. not a brilliant idea. Steroids and all...

it will take a little while to put that all back to right again. but weeks not years.

Alos i thought it was too much antibiotics that cause yellow teeth.

as for the herbal remedy the neam will be a anti bacterial i think. but before you get to that stage bacteria live on sugar! lower that and you won't ned the creams.

seriously just get her food correct. check the milk situation. even though a B.

get back to a very very plain diet. for week and see what happens. sunshine and not so much sunscreen either.

Not too much burnt chicken of course ;0

Wow - you guys are awesome - I will pass on the hugs for sure.

The first thing I will do is to cut down on the ice cream. We tried this one other time, but it didnt last for long. She practically goes into a melt down when we say she cant have it! That and yogurt are about the only things that she eats that are high in sugar. She eats loads of carrots, broccoli, greenbeans and other veggies. She is very aware of what she eats, but she throws everything out the window when it comes to her vanilla bean breyers.

What about the milk. I guy only organic, and she really doesnt drink much of it. Only if she has a bowl of cereal in the morning. she eats a TON of mozarella cheese though - is that not good?

I would like to try the tee tree oil and lavender.....that sounds like it might be helpful.

Any special probiotics? I should probably get the one sold here for B's. but for now I have some in my fridge to get started.

Thank you all.....I am blessed to have such helpful BT buddies!

one other thing.. no harsh soaps.. and for icecream replacement.. don't even mention it.. its as much a need as comfort.. less fuss is better.. offer her smoothies together for both of you..they are healthy and fun.  

I use soft VitaBath in the shower, head to toe and will walk miles to get it, its rare to find, but the right shampoo or lotion might be better then harsh soaps.  Nerves are also be a big trigger, after all the hugs for her.. a hug to you .. it is difficult seeing your child suffer.. but I know that beneficial foods are medicine.. and medicine that does not work is not good for us/ it messes with our own ability to fix things.. look in the ER Enyclopedia for help.. I think ther eis a link here some where for protocols ..

you might try salt water for the skin to wash with .. or just a few drops of poraxide in water.. and rub it to make the oxygen bubbles come out..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

The cheese is a possible culprit. for two reasons. the milk protein in it,  if it is an issue - it was with Emily. and the milk also. move to porridge while you figure it out then there is no need for milk and if the wheat is causing an issue that will help also.

but it only tackles a few days to find out for sure. at least you can be aware of it while quickly or slowly trying to find the cause - but it will be a food i assure you. and there will be tantrums but worth it tin the end.

at the weekends or if you have time on other days do a cooked breakfast. but to be sure be careful of processed sausages etc as if histamine is an issue they are high. my guess is the sugar still though and the milk protein. but I'm probably biased toward them after all the grief they have caused Emily

one note - the food that she craves the most is usually the cause so ice bream would be my guess. and i know absolutely loads of people that can't eat any ice cream, although from memory most are O's.

Do you have Harris Teeter in SC?  They have an ice cream that doesn't have the gums Breyers added a couple of years ago.  It is Harris Teeter All Natural ice cream.  I was an ice cream expert.  HT All Natural is Breyers, only better!  

Are her cereals compliant?  Any little bit of wheat is very inflammatory for me.  

Naturally be sure to check the ingredients in her yogurt.  The only probiotics that didn't cause intestinal infection for me (including yogurts) was Dr D's Polyflora for B.  Anything disrupting her gut will come out in the skin.

OK - I have one big thing that keeps on swirling around in my head....if this is a hormonal problem, is any of this going to help? I mean, I understand, that eating this good food is going to help her tremendously, and even if her hormones dont change, it would be good for her body and hopefully her skin. BUT what I want to know is, being a pre-teen going through these changes in her body, does she need more than this? or will her food change her hormones. I would hope that they would....but can they?


other stuff -

COOKED BREAKFAST -  I cook breakfast (2 eggs and a toasted bagel with cream cheese, sometimes just butter) every other day on the days that I dont have to go to the gym really early. But now, I will spend more time making the extra effort to cook for her. She loves eggs with a little sprinkle of cheddar, and usually has a bagel with them. Keep the cheddar cheese? I will try replacing the bagel with strawberries or grapes.

I am going to talk to her tonight and make a plan with her. She was showing a huge interest yesterday in eating for her blood type, so I was encouraged by that. I want this decision to be mostly her choice. This is the only way she will stick to it.

First thing is to cut out icecream completely, and cut down sugar found in her other foods. Fruits are ok right?

I dont think I want to cut out all gluten for her completely. Since she doesnt eat it every day, and I rarely cook anything with gluten in it.

Eating for your type is always going to help.  If it does nothing else, it will reduce the amount of toxins ingested, so the body has less garbage to deal with.  If it has less garbage to deal with, it can better control everything else.

A word of caution, here.  Please do not be surprised and you should talk to her in advance that she could have some kind of detox.  She has been on antibiotics for two years.  She may have a reaction with the probiotics, so I would introduce them extremely slowly.  If they are in capsule form, you should open the capsule and sprinkle about 1/3 to 1/2 of ONE capsule to start.  You can sprinkle it directly on her tongue or on her food, such as yogurt.  Just don't put it on hot food.  Use 1/3 to 1/2 capsule twice a day for about four days.  Then increase to one full capsule twice a day, for another four days.  Keep increasing slowly like this, every four days until you reach the max amount you would want to give her.  

Dr. D's probiotics are a mixture.  I am not sure if everyone on this forum would agree with me, but sometimes it is safer to start with a single strain of probiotic when you fear detox.  If I were to start with a single strain, I would do bifidus first for about two weeks, building up slowly as recommended above.  Then I would keep the levels of bifidus at the same amount and slowly add acidophilus, same as the bifidus.  Once you have been doing the acidophilus and bifidus at full strength with as many as can be tolerated, I would then consider adding in a multi strain probiotic, but again adding very slowly as recommended above.

I do not know if bifidus and acidophilus are well tolerated by your daughter's blood type.  I do know, however, that bifidus is what is found in breast milk, so how bad can it be?  

If you start her too abruptly on the probiotics, she could have a much worse break out of her skin before it begins to get better.

Does the yogurt she is eating have probiotics?  What brand does she eat?

I am not proud of this yogurt brand..... She is eating "simply gogurt" by yoplait. I really dont think it has any probiotics in it, unfortunately. I have tried to get her to eat greek yogurt, but no. She is stubborn in her ways. Always has been. I am at fault thought too because I buy it. so that is that. *head hanging low*

The probiotics that I have right now are VERY strong. Even stronger than what Dadamo sells. The ones I have are by Dr. Natura and were for a cleanse that my husband and I did. Here's what is in them:

2 Vcaps per serving:

L acidophilus 2.4 B
L. casei 1.2B
L. rhamnosus 1.2B
L. salivarius 1.2 B
B. bifidum 400M
B. lactis 400M
B. longum 400M
Streptococcus  800 m

This is too strong in your opinion right? I only have about 20 capsules left. But do you think I should even use them?

Why would she has a reaction to using the probiotics with the antibiotics? Just want to understand. And by a reaction/detox you mean her acne would get worse first before it got better? Or other things as well?

I think changes are needed for the doughters health..her breaking out is a symptom.. the foods she eats are wrong in my book, not only for the icecream but other things even worse..it's like looking for a pill to fix things rather then doing the work..

if you are ever a little inventive then cooking good for her foods is easy and she would not even have to be much aware..  I did it with several teens and they mostly did not realize it or if they did they liked the choices.

cooking for her will be easy, once you see the value in it.. hormones may or may not adjust right away, health takes many month to repair.. she has been eating not only NEUTRALs (I would not) but so many actual (poisonous) avoid foods..

where are all the Super Beneficial/ Diamond foods she needs as medicinal value to heal..

or Beneficials to sustain her.. that is all this child should get for the main meals, those are up to mom.. but what she eats OUT is going to be her own choices as she needs to learn control as well over her life..


if there is only proper food available, in unrestricted ways, then a little ingenuity will make a big difference to everyone.. frozen desserts are fun to make and to eat and easy to promote.. good things come from looking at a avoid list..

No need to hang your head low.  You are learning, just as we all are.  You did your best.  Guilt will not help you or your daughter

This is too strong in your opinion right? I only have about 20 capsules left. But do you think I should even use them?


I cannot answer this.  I know that when I was marketing a line of health food supplements, we used single strain probiotics to start to try and minimize strong detox reactions.  I am sure that Lola or someone else can help you better with this.  I am honestly not familiar with the probiotics for your blood type, as I am a different type.  

Quoted from Nadizzle
Why would she has a reaction to using the probiotics with the antibiotics? Just want to understand. And by a reaction/detox you mean her acne would get worse first before it got better? Or other things as well?


Yes, unfortunately for someone who has been on antibiotics for two years, this is a possibility, which is why I recommend that WHATEVER probiotic you choose, you should start very slowly.  Antibiotics kill the body's beneficial bacteria in the intestines and the ability to fight off infection.  When you introduce probiotics, they have a bit of a battle with the bad bacteria that has built up in the intestines and can cause the body to detox.  Don't get me wrong . . . detox is a positive aspect of the healing process.  But you should be aware and make your daughter aware that her acne could get worse before it gets better.  With a slow introduction of probiotics, you should hope to lessen the negative effects of detox or avoid it all together.  However, she will need to get rid of the bad bacterial in her intestines that may have built up from long term use of antibiotics.

I hope that someone else can chime in on the process of detoxing.  It is really a good thing, but one should be prepared so they are not put off.  That is why I recommend going slowly with the probiotics.  Also, if you can find another type of yogurt that has the beneficial bacteria, that would help too!!!  I hope I have not scared you.  That is not my intent.  My intent is to inform you and your daughter so that you can work through this together.  I know that she wants her skin to be smooth and clear and I know that is what you want for her too!!!  My hope is that by taking it slowly your daughter will totally avoid any detox or negative reactions.

Please give her another hug and a for me!   Here is a hug and a for you, too, MOM!

Patty - You have not scared me at all. I understand the detox, and am ready for a reaction.  I would much rather hear the truth so I know what the realistic possibilities are and can be prepared!!!!

On a really great note, My hubby and I talked with Katie tonight, and she is ON-BOARD!  I am so glad - and she is aware that there may be a little bit where she is detoxing and is ready for it. I am so glad she is with us. It will make this so much easier!!!

So here we go! We are started in the morning (except for the probiotics - will order in the am) with a new diet and a hopeful outlook!

I will update here as we progress

Thank you ALL for your encouragement and your wise words!

I haven't read the entire thread, so forgive me if my comments aren't all accurate.  I will attempt to describe a bit more some of the detox effects, however, some may not apply in every case...

If the body is unable to clean out all of the toxins, it will store them in fatty cysts.  Once you reduce the toxin load, through better diet or better health, part of the healing process is to rebuild the gut flora and the removal of any stored toxins...  The gut flora rebuilding can cause some severely uncomfortable stomach / digestive disturbances.  The toxins can cause the same effects leaving as they did during the first exposure, although you may not have felt all of the symptoms of the first occurrence depending on how well you were eating or what other situations you were dealing with at the time...  

Wishing you the best of good health!

Skin problems are always directly related to bowel and liver problems. If the bowels aren't healthy the liver will be overloaded with toxicity. Magnesium oil used transdermal will help with her bowel and B's are one of the most in need blood types for magnesium as the majority of magnesium rich foods are on the avoid list for B's.

Magnesium oil will also help with the hormonal stuff in conjunction.

But ditto to the probiotics. If you can get her some raw dairy that is on the highly beneficial list for her that will also do so much good!


O positive baby boy.
