Hi Tanya. How did the diet go? Are you still on it? Have you had more regrowth?

These might help: And, Tanya; the anti-flamatory diet appears to be an excellent suggestion.

About 11 months ago I started an anti-inflamatory diet and am seeing more re-growth than ever! This is by far the most promising treatment to date for me, and most importantly, it works from within the body, not by irritating the scalp.

The past 10 years I've only had peach fuzz here and here. Now I have about 25% regrowth! The nape area where there had been no hair for so long are now showing tiny growths!

The anti-inflamatory diet means no grains (wheat, rice), no corn, no potatoes. Sub all that with veggies. (It's not that hard, really!) Give it a try for 30 days. 30 days because it forms a habit, and because your gut lining should be repaired / recovered by then. If you feel great health-wise, then stick with it! To see hair growth, it takes a bit longer. A couple months for me I think. My guideline is Primal Diet. You can look that up, or try other ones such as paleo or cavemen diet. If you are vegetarian you can still be on this diet. Remember it's a lifestyle change, so it's ok to cheat once in a while but always get back on! It's not hard once your body realizes it feels better on it.

This diet also helped my acne-prone skin. It's supposed to help other autoimmune conditions too. (And brings your body to a healthy weight.)

Another connection I'm exploring is yeast. Reading from a couple sources, a theory for the cause of autoimmune is that yeasts bind to certain cells, and when the body attacks the yeast, it appears to be attacking its own cells. The anti-inflamatory diet itself is yeast-reducing, which could be the reason why it is working for me. I'm looking to further reduce the yeast with anti-yeast supplements. My tongue has been coated with white (aka oral thrush) near the back (less severe now) which is a sign of candida/yeast overgrowth. If you have the same, I think this diet plus some anti-candida supplements will help you too :)

Hi Group, I've decided to try squaric acid treatment again. My hair has grown back except for a few spots, so I think it will be more tolerable in a small area. My doctor also took the strength down from .1 to .05, so I hope this will make a less severe reaction. Will let you know if it works.

My daughter tried dpcp 2 years ago when she lost all of her hair. We put on the treatment once a week for 48 hours. I'm sorry to say it did not work at all for her. We stopped the treatment after 6 months, so maybe we did not give it a good chance. She wants to try it again, but I am dreading it. She wears a lace wig that is bonded with a strong tape for a week at a time. She is 15 and very involved in high school activities. She does not want to use a lighter tape, because she feels very secure and comfortable with the way we have been bonding it. There is no way it will come off without using 99% alcohol. So, to do the treatment, it is a lot of work and hassle. Of course I will do it for her, but just dreading it. I'm curious to know if it has actually really worked for anyone.
