What's The Real Cause Of Acne?

What's The Real Cause Of Acne?
by: Houa Yang
Most acne medications only mask the symptoms of acne and does nothing to stop the real cause of acne. This is why people buy acne products month after month (year after year). And every time they stop using the product acne would come back again and again.

What you need to do is find out what the real cause of acne is and stop it.

So what's the real cause of acne?

Acne occurs when your body contains more toxics than your kidneys and bowels can remove. (Your kidneys and bowels are the two primary channels of elimination that your body expel toxics and waste products through.)
These toxics can be the accumulation of fat stored chemicals the liver can not wash out or there may be a problem with fat digestion, fat accumulation, food allergy, or even the accumulation of hormones that your body produces.

Once these toxics build up, your kidneys and bowels can get overloaded and clogged up, causing it to not function properly.

When that happens some of the load will be dumped onto your liver. One of your liver's main roles is to metabolize pile up fat into usable energy for your body.

This means, your liver will be doing some of your kidney's work. So now, your liver gets overloaded and it too will not work at full capacity.

What happens when your bowels, kidneys, and liver gets overloaded?

When that happen your body will expel toxins through your lungs and skin (your secondary channels of elimination). And this is when acne occurs. This is when your skin starts to breakout.

But whatever the toxic source is that's causing this problem, acne is a sign that your bowels and kidneys are overloaded with toxins, waste products, or hormones.

It is a sign that your liver is growing weaker in its detoxification abilities (and it will continue to grow weaker if you do not do what it takes to get rid of the toxics in your body).

So if you think that acne is your only problem, think again, your liver, kidneys, and bowels are getting weaker every time you breakout.

Tumbuhkan Wirausaha Tingkatkan Produksi Budidaya PDF Print E-mail

Kenaikan produksi hingga 353% dalam lima tahun ke depan atau sebesar 16,8 juta membutuhkan kerja keras dari sektor perikanan budidaya. Sebab sektor inilah yang menjadi batu loncatan bagi tercapai cita-cita tersebut.

Untuk itu maka paling tidak harus ada peningkatkan jumlah wirausaha perikanan budidaya yang didukung oleh sistem pembiyaan (modal dan investasi) yang memadai. Secara rinci Direktorat Usaha Budidaya – Direktorat Jenderal Perikanan Budidaya (DJPB) pada Forum Akselerasi Pembangunan Perikanan Budidaya 2010 – 2014 beberapa waktu lalu di Batam menyebutkan bahwa peningkatan tersebut bisa dilihat dari beberapa indikator. Yakni peningkatan jumlah modal kerja untuk budidaya perikanan laut, payau dan air tawar. Selanjutnya adalah peningkatan jumlah investasi untuk budidaya laut, payau dan air tawar. Juga peningkatan dalam hal jumlah tenaga kerja untuk usaha budidaya laut, payau dan air tawar.

Guna mewujudkan peningkatan tersebut maka ada beberapa langkah yang akan diambil direktorat usaha ini. Yakni menumbumbuhkan wirausaha baru yang produktif dan efisien, mengembangkan usaha agar bisa mencapai target produksi perikanan budidaya sebesar 16,8 juta ton pada 2014. Dan langkah lainnya adalah meningkatkan kapasitas usaha pembudidaya ikan menjadi usaha yang layak didanai bank (bankable).

Untuk wirausaha pemula ini ada beberapa kriteria. Yaitu berdomisili di lokasi sasaran, berpendidikan sarjana, menjadi pembudidaya pemula/muda, tergabung dalam Pokdakan dan menjadi anggota UPP serta berkomitmen untuk memanfaatkan model pengembangan usaha dan menjadi wirausahawan (enterpreuner) di bidang budidaya ikan.

Sementara itu untuk mewujudkan tumbuhnya wirausaha di bidang perikanan budidaya ini maka DJPB menyediakan paket-paket bantuan untuk usaha budidaya perikanan. Bagi masyarakat umum yang beminat melakukan usaha budidaya perikanan namun tak punya modal akan mendapatkan paket bantuan sosial dengan anggaran dari APBN. Bantuan itu berupa sarana produksi minimal untuk budidaya.

Paket bantuan tersebut misalnya paket budidaya patin di kolam. Satu paket bernilai Rp 9,5 juta dalam bentuk sarana produksi yang terdiri atas bantuan benih 7 ribu ekor, pakan 2 ton dengan sumber protein dari maggot, serta bantuan pembuatan satu kolam (ukuran 10 x 20 x 3 m3) senilai Rp 3,5 juta. Dengan paket ini diperkirakan produktivitas kolam akan mencapai 3 ton/paket/tahun.

Paket bantuan lainnya yang tersedia adalah paket budidaya patin di KJA, paket budidaya rumput laut senilai Rp 6,5 juta per paket, paket budidaya lele di kolam plastik senilai Rp 7,5 juta, paket budidaya polikultur udang windu dan bandeng senilai Rp 6 juta, paket budidaya nila di KJA senilai Rp 15 juta dan masih banyak paket bantuan lainnya.

Bank yang menjadi penyalur kredit mikro tersebut adalah BRI, BNI, Mandiri, Mandiri Syariah, Bukopin dan Bank Pembangunan Daerah (BPD). Sementara lembaga penjamin kreditnya ada Askrindo (Asuransi Kredit Indonesia) dan Jamkrindo (Jaminan Kredit Indonesia).

Selanjutnya masyarakat umum yang telah menjadi pembudidaya pemula ini bisa mengajukan permohonan memperoleh kredit BLU (Bantuan Langsung Usaha) dan PKBL (program Kemitraan dan Bina Lingkungan). Jika mereka sudah mampu meningkatkan skala produksinya, maka status mereka meningkat menjadi pembudidaya madya. Pembudidaya pada tingkat ini akan mampu melakukan intensifikasi sehingga mereka bisa mengajukan permohonan kredit dengan bunga lunak kepada bank. Paket kredit yang tersedia untujk pembudidaya ini antara lain KUR (Kredit Usaha Rakyat) dan KKP-E (Kredit Ketahanan Pangan dan Energi).

Tingkatan berikutnya adalah pembudidaya maju. Untuk pembudidaya ini bisa menggunakan kredit komersial dari bank. Untuk bisa mendapat kredit itu harus ada rekomendasi dari Kepala UPP (Unit Pelayanan Pengembangan—gabungan beberapa Pokdakan—). (Rd)

Why Don't Acne Cures Work?

Why Don't Acne Cures Work?
by: GSET Publishing
Quite a bit of money can be spent searching for acne cures that work. There are so many products available, that it is hard to know which one's to try. You try one product, only to be disappointed, and then spend a lot of money on another system that claims it will cure your acne, only to be disappointed again. It seems to be a never ending cycle of looking for a cure, thinking you've found an acne cure, then being disappointed all over again.

The biggest problem is that people don't give the acne cures enough time to actually work, switching from one product to the next on a weekly basis. It can take up to three months for an acne treatment to cure your acne, and you may even notice that your acne appears to be getting worse before it starts to get better. Failure to follow the product directions is another common problem. Using too much of the acne medication can be just as much of a problem as not using it enough, causing your skin to become irritated.

The problem may not be the acne cures. Too often, people depend solely on the acne medication to cure acne, when in fact other lifestyle changes are needed. In many cases, medicinal acne treatments are not even required if you find that something else in your life is causing the acne. Most people don't think in terms of what is causing the acne in the first place, concentrating solely on curing the existing acne. But, in order to cure it for good, you must first determine what is causing it. Then, you will have your acne cure.

Science has shown us that acne is caused by excessive sebum production. With that proven, it is up to you, and possibly your health care provider, to determine exactly what is causing your body to produce excess sebum.

Other than the medication, you have to look at how you care for your skin. You must wash your face well at least twice each day, stop wearing makeup - which only serves to clog your pores even more, drink plenty of water, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and exercise at least three times a week. Many people don't realize it, but exercise relieves stress and helps remove toxins from the body through sweat. Both stress and toxins contribute to acne, which is why exercising regularly can actually be an acne cure for you.

Furthermore, you must keep your hair and your hands off your face. Hair and hands contain oils that contribute to acne. Squeezing or popping acne pimples is another problem, because it spreads the bacteria, and often causes scarring as well.

You may have a food allergy that is causing your acne. If this is the case, a visit to an allergy specialist, determining what foods you are allergic to, and eliminating those foods from your diet will cure your acne in most cases. Many people don't realize that they have food allergies, although most of us actually do, and in many cases, the only symptom that there is an allergy is, in fact, an acne breakout!

Making simple lifestyle changes may be the best acne cure available to you, and you may be pleasantly surprised at the results - especially considering how small the changes are. You should also increase your intake of vitamins A and E, as both of the vitamins promote healthy skin. You can take supplements, or eat foods that are rich in one or both of these vitamins. This small change can also help to cure or prevent acne.

However, if making these small lifestyle changes, and using over the counter acne treatments does not provide an acne cure for you, it may be necessary for you to visit a dermatologist to determine what will work. There are many different treatments available that have proven to be effective acne cures. While most of the acne cures your dermatologist will recommend can be expensive, they are usually well worth the cost. Again, make sure that you give the treatment time to work, and follow the directions of your dermatologist for use of the medication.
