“It is like the boxcar is being burned,” says one woman who tried boxcar acne treatment
A woman who has tried boxcarcinogenic acne treatments for over 20 years says they are a godsend for women who suffer from chronic acne.
Samantha Stowe, who has had four different types of acne, had been seeing a dermatologist after seeing a rash flare-up in her lower back.
She was prescribed an over-the-counter steroid that is commonly used in women with hormonal acne to help treat the inflammation.
But that treatment did not help her condition.
So she decided to try a brand-new treatment, using a new protocol called “boxcar.”
Boxcar is a highly effective and well-tolerated treatment, according to Dr. Stephanie Tischler, a dermatology professor at the University of Arizona.
The boxcar technique involves the use of an oversize capsule made from a high-fat, high-carbohydrate diet and has been used for thousands of years in Western medicine to treat conditions ranging from cancer to arthritis.
It’s a more gentle, less toxic way to use a treatment than traditional steroid treatments, she said.
The results are promising, she added.
In her boxcar regimen, she says she feels better within two weeks and her skin appears healthier.
She has never had any side effects from the treatment.
Stowe says she’s had more than 20 different kinds of acne from skin conditions such as rosacea and psoriasis, to cystic skin.
Boxcar treatments work by releasing inflammatory cytokines that trigger an immune response that makes your cells attack damaged or scarred skin cells.
The immune response also stimulates the production of collagen, a tough, elastic protein that helps cushion and repair skin.
The result is that boxcar treatments have the ability to treat a wide range of skin conditions including rosaceas, psorias and cystic-like acne, according in a study published in the Journal of Dermatology.
Stoeve says the new boxcar treatment has worked well for her and her friends.
“It’s been really helpful,” she said, adding that she also sees improvements in her overall health and quality of life.
She’s been using boxcar for four years and says it has saved her from the “worst-case scenario” of a severe flare-ups.
“There’s no reason why someone who has chronic acne could not get this for the rest of their life,” she added, “because the benefits are so great.”
