Back, Shoulder, and Cheek Breakouts? Check for SIBO=Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
Your digestive system has a balance of good bacteria versus the bad bacteria. If the bad bacteria start to win, they can produce a harmful toxins that can result in breakouts.
One way to test for small intestine bacteria is by a breath test...a SIBO breath test. When bacteria digest food they produce gas and toxins. You can check for the gas through this breath test. If you don’t want to take that step, try and find a good holistic practitioner that can test in various ways.
A simple step to help cleanse the Small
Intestine. AVOID SUGARY FOOD.
What feeds SIBO? Anything that can create an anaerobic (oxygen free), acidic environment. The main culprit is refined sugar-white sugar, simple sugars and starches.
* Cakes, colas, baked treats, cows milk, and dairy products, etc.
* Corn syrup (High fructose corn syrup)
* Fructose-Fruit sugars
* Sucrose-sugar cane, sugar beets, maple syrup
* White Potatoes
* Grains and Rice
Eliminating these foods will create a die off that can diminish upper back, forehead, and cheek breakouts.
The next thing to look at are the elimination pathways, such as the large intestine, small intestine, kidneys, bladder, length, and skin. These need to flow properly so the toxins don’t try to come out through the skin. We can keep jt simple, get your bowels to move regularly to help clear up the small intestinal bacteria toxicity.
Everyone is unique, and it is advised to find a holistic practitioner that can test products to help you clear out the small intestinal bacteria even further if needed. But here are some general supplements I have found help patients clear their skin.

Try these daily practices and see if they help to reduce your breakouts. If you still have summer breakouts reoccurring, that is a good time to find a good practitioner to help find specific spices and herbs to help clean out the digestive tract.
