acneFrom the Desk of Denise Delkamp:
An Acne Solution

About a year ago, just before my son turned 14, he began breaking out with acne. It really bothered him and it was quite unsightly. He asked me if he could use an acne product called Proactiv that he saw in a commercial on TV that was supposed to make his face clear in 2 weeks. I was a little reluctant to buy the product, but I know what it is like to go through having acne, and I just wanted to help him.

We received the products, he started using them, and it seemed like for the first week that it was helping, a little. After the first week, there was no more improvement and his skin became dry and flaky. We tried the Proactiv for 3 months, which I now find hard to believe. Once we faced the fact that it wasn't working, we went with another commercially successful acne product, Murad. This actually made his acne WORSE! He had more acne and his entire face was red. We stopped using the Murad after the one-month supply we had purchased ran out.

gluten-free dietAt this point, I started looking more into my son's diet and supplements. He is an athlete and a pretty good eater, but we decided to remove all gluten and most sugar (other than fruit) from his diet. He ate limited amounts of dairy and increased his protein consumption. I also added supplements to his diet. I put him on:

Catalyn - A whole food multivitamin containing specific glandular tissue to complement the whole food ingredients to stimulate cell and tissue repair. Vitamin A supports skin cell integrity. Vitamin C promotes healthy skin by supporting the natural growth and repair of skin tissues and cells, as well as collagen production.

Chase Tree - Maintains healthy skin in circumstances requiring a normal hormone balance (in men and women).

DermaCo - Contains the following herbs: sarsaparilla, cleavers, Oregon grape, burdock, and yellow dock. This combination of herbs supports normal flushing of toxins from the body, encourages the healthy function of the organs of elimination, promotes normal healthy skin renewal and integrity, cleanses the blood, and promotes healthy liver and intestinal function.

Zinc - Facilitates the production and regulation of about 200 hormones in your body, including testosterone. Imbalanced testosterone levels promote acne. Zinc optimizes overall hormonal balance.

Zinc is also closely involved in protein synthesis and in collagen formation in your body, both of which are essential in the maintenance of healthy skin and in normalizing production of skin oils. If you have been to a dermatologist and have been advised to take tetracycline, you may find it interesting that zinc is as effective as this antibiotic for preventing acne.

(All the above supplements are either the brand Standard Process or Mediherb, which the Optimal Health Center offers only through consultation.)

fish oilFish Oil - Using fish oil is a good way to reduce inflammation of your skin. Acne is a skin inflammation reaction to an excess of sebum in the skin and therefore any treatment that helps reduce inflammation will also assist in the reduction of acne.

Additionally, fish oil helps to relieve acne because it is anti-bacterial. On our skin there is a bacteria that thrives on sebum, particularly in teenagers. As sebum production increases, this bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes), inhabits the follicles in our skin. This increases the body's inflammatory reaction by increasing white blood cells to the area, promoting even more acne.

Within a week on this new protocol, my son's face began to clear up. Now, 3 months into it, he has very little acne. He still has some breakouts, and probably will while going through puberty, but it is very manageable for him. He feels so much better about the way he looks.

My son now only uses organic, all-natural cleansers for his face.

Please contact the Optimal Health Center if you or a family member need support with ridding your skin of acne.
Testimonial: Outcome with Enema Prep was an Easy Colonoscopy

When I was scheduled for my first colonoscopy, Golytely was prescribed, and when I told my physician I would be just fine with a series of enemas, she said no. Like Scott from Salt Lake City, I was told Golytely or no exam.
I said nothing and did my fasting and series of enemas. I was squeaky clean after the third, but took two more to be sure.  The outcome was an easy colonoscopy, and when I advised my physician, she said I was as clean as any colon she had examined and that the reason for the objection to enemas is that most people don't know how to use them effectively....

Healthy Aging Essentials

herbal supplements

With a growing aging population, many Baby Boomers are becoming highly motivated to maintain their most important and valuable possession: their good health. As we age, our body experiences great change. Many of these changes can affect our quality of life and impact on various aspects of our health, including cognitive health, memory function, energy, mobility, and general well-being. While the aging process is inevitable, there is much we can do to remain healthy and vital as we get older.

A weekly to monthly colon cleanse program is part of what we can do to remain healthy and vital as we get older.

We can also support and maintain health and vitality using herbs from MediHerb's collection of Healthy Aging Essentials. The following partial list contains herbs that the staff of the Optimal Health Center consider as healthy aging essentials.

rhodiola - ginsengRhodiola & Ginseng Complex

The herbs Rhodiola and Korean Ginseng are potent natural stress reducers and can help support and maintain the body as it ages.

These herbs combined help to enhance mental clarity, promote vitality and stamina, and support the body's natural defenses against emotional and environmental stressors.


Vitanox is an herbal antioxidant for patients who wish to positively support the natural processes of aging.

This well-balanced formulation provides strong antioxidant protection through the combination of green tea, turmeric, grape seed extract, and rosemary.

Vitanox may also support healthy circulation, connective tissue, vascular integrity, and cellular health.

Ginkgo Forte

Ginkgo Forte has a broad range of clinical applications particularly beneficial for the aging patient, including support for memory, cognition, circulation, cardiovascular health, and eye health.

Research shows a high-quality ginkgo extract must contain the important active constituents ginkgolide and bilobalide. It must also contain the marker constituents ginkgo flavonglycosides, which are used to identify the herb.

Each MediHerb tablet contains a potent dose of standardized ginkgo extract phytoequivalent to the extract used in positive clinical trials: 14.4 mg of ginkgo flavonglycosides and 3.6 mg of ginkgolides and bilobalide.

garlicGarlic - 5000 mg

Garlic offers clinically proven benefits for cardiovascular and immune system health, making it an important part of a healthy aging regime.

MediHerb Garlic 5000 mg tablets release 2.6 mg of garlic's active constituent allicin per tablet (confirmed by independent laboratory testing).


This is a synergistic formula designed specifically for the Baby Boomer to help support and maintain the body as it ages.

HerbaVital contains resveratrol from Polygonum cuspidatum, pine bark, Korean ginseng root, ginkgo leaf, and milk thistle seed. Each of these efficacious herbs contains guaranteed levels of the important active constituents.

HerbaVital works as a whole body tonic supporting cognitive function, healthy circulation, the immune system, healthy joints, liver function, glucose metabolism, and general well-being.
