Alopecia and HRT implants

Hi everyone I have alopecia and have no hair at all anywhere on my body including eyelashes. As of yet the specialist has not been able to tell me what triggered it off however I have a younger sister who has recently had a hysterectomy and is now on HRT. During a discussion with her doctor regarding myself and HRT we discovered that I was laterally on implants and just recently they have found that women going through the menopause and taking HRT implants have been found to have low immune… Continue

Reseting your immune system

I have read that fasting can trigger a reset of immune function, anyone here try this? Would love to hear about anyone who has tried this and results. I have started today only having 200 calories a day and water, I will report back on results but this might obviously take some time! I am going for a 3 day fast.

Hair up cream. Real or not?

Is this a scam? http://www.shmuel-gonen.com/en/ I have had AA for over 30 years and full-blown AU for 6. I am happy in my own skin and I have made peace with AA knowing that hair regrowth for me probably will never happen.

I know there is some exciting research happening for treatment.

Maybe the miracle is only a few years away. There are a lot of scam artists with fake claims of success and I want to be sure no one is taken advantage of.… Continue

Hello, has anyone had experience taking low dose naltrexone for alopecia?

My doctor suggested i try it specially compounded.... I currently seem to be going from universalis to totalis... not sure what has brought about this change. I eat right, exercise a lot, and have had alopecia in my life for 40 years. I have added fish oils to my supplement regimen and my doc feels i have lessened my inflammatory levels. He said the low dose naltrexone can do this too. Thanks for your help, Rie

You also have anxiety / depression?

Hello everybody, apart from Alopecia I also have anxiety. After that my hair fell out, I stayed with my self esteem too low and I started having anxiety because hair loss moved a lot with my emotional state because before I used to be praised by the people and repentes these compliments turned on looks strangers, rejection and difficulty of relating to people. Something similar also happened to you?
