I’m wondering if anyone has a similar story to ours...
My daughter was diagnosed with AA approximately 2 years ago (she is now 11) and after many visits to GP’s, trichologists and dermatologists, we have come across a nutritionist/natural therapist. We discovered that she was deficient in zinc and iron. We also sent off stool samples which came back positive for salmonella! Curious, as she is non-symptomatic and we can’t actually remember the last time she even had gastro. We’d previously thought her alopecia had been triggered by osteomyelitis discitis years ago, now the nutritionist thinks the salmonella, osteo & AA are all connected.
My daughter was put on antibiotics immediately for 2 weeks and is now on a probiotic, zinc and another multivitamin.We are yet to have our next appointment, but we have noted a massive change over these 8 weeks. Lots of regrowth, though still quite patchy - but no hair fall.
Has anyone heard of anything like this? A virus that’s been found, treated and alopecia reversed?
Would love to hear your stories or opinions on this!
Interesting! The trigger for this autoimmune disease is always puzzling.
