well thats it iv done it finally my hair is now been shaved off,i feel so much beter now that im not finding hair all over my wigs sit beter and my scarfs dont slip off.

i think the thing that helped me was doing it nice and slowly,as soon as my bald patch arrived i wore a thick lycra hairband and then started wearing scarfs with a little hair hanging out,then started tucking the hair up the back of the scarf......slowly i got used to my new appearance and then when i shaved…

so far i have a 4inch by 4inch bald patch on the left of my head and a coin sized one on the right but for the last few days iv been really tender on the top of my iv been bashed hard on the head and i had this before my hair fell out on the sides so it looks like i might not get away with wearing my thick hairband much longer and have to just shave it.i think shaving might help me feel more in control somehow.

the only thing i don't get about alopecia is every time before… Continue

hi i was wanting advice from anyone who has had to deal with negative reactions from their kids with dealing with alopecia. my eldest boy is 12 and he is mortified that i might go totally bald.tact isn't his strong point as he has asperger syndrome but it really hurts and i don't want to be an embarrassment to him.i tried a wig on and he covered his eyes and said i looked terrible and i should get a wig that looks just like my old hair.i was dealing with this quite well until this happened!any… Continue

Hi Laura
Thank you for responding back to me. I am interested in finding out more. Do you have any links etc, that I can read about? My naturopath has advised to not have dairy, try to be gluten free, sugar. My problem is, I am good for like 3 weeks out of the month and then I am tempted, it's a vicious cycle.
Look forward to writing some more.

Hello there Laura, I just read your post on stories of hope... wonderful your hair is growing back, I hope it will never be an issue for you again. I will get that book today! I was wondering about your fasting... what sort of fasts do you do? I'm kinda in that realm of 'healing' too... have cut gluten out, sugar, all dairy but goat's milk (raw), and grains. What sort of fast did you do?

Hi Laura, I picked up the book that you recommended, thank you very much. I was able to pick up some coconut oil and I have begun incorporating it into her diet. I consulted another local nutritionist/natural foods person and she suggested that if I think Dani might have leaky gut, that I should get her off of wheat products/gluten. She gave me a reference to a book called "Wheat is Murder" and pointed out that the genetically modified wheat we eat today causes leaky gut. So I've started Dani on a gluten-free diet, which is expensive and not easy to do but not that hard either. Plus I'm giving her about 15 billion probiotics daily so we'll so if that works. I'll keep you in the loop. How are you doing?

Hello and welcome, Laura!
Stress is not a direct cause of alopecia but it can be a trigger.
How are you today?
