On my way to natural eating and removing the gluten from my diet. Today is my first day. I don't have much money until Friday, so I have to eat what is in the house. It's 2:00 pm and I only ate an apple and some cucumbers with olive oil and vinegar. I have a natural doctor, I just started last month with her. She gave supplements and some food items I should eat and not eat. I've been taken the supplements ,but eating what ever I wanted. I have notice an improvement in my hair. One of our brothers on Alophica World said something about removing gluten from his diet and his hair grew back. If any one have information, including websites please give your input. If you have something to add good or bad let me know. When my daughter return, I will be talking pictures, so we can track my progress together. Oh ya, I'm getting ready to eat a sweet potato when it's finish baking. I will be using "healthy blance" it's a buttery spread.

Our brother Vin from Alophica World saw improvements. so if you want contact him.

Thank you Tanya, your right, because I did read about sister of ours who's hair got worse. I don't Tanya, but I know your right about, I must stay on middle ground. TY

I went gluten-free about 6 months ago. Unfortunately, I'm still losing hair. However, I still feel that there is a food connection. In addition to hair loss, my scalp has hot spots that burn. I've noticed that the burning intensifies after eating certain foods. I've discovered the book, "The Anti-Inflammation Diet" and have been trying to avoid the list of inflammatory foods which includes: Wheat, sugar, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts, etc. It has definitely helped but, not completely. Still looking for the magic answer. I've been considering doing a cleansing fast or trying a raw food diet. Anything! I need to feel like I have some control!

Vin! Good to hear from you. Thank you for the information. I think I might just go to an allergic instead of guessing. My eyes were so red, last month, I thought it was pink eye, the dr said I had allergy. I said" What" he gave me so eye drops and that was it. During the summer of 2009 my calcium level was high, not good and never normal. I took every cancer test there was. I was stressed; test after test, but then my calcium returned to normal. I was so tried, I slept day and night. well I'll keep you posted. Hey Vin? Take the pledge, we need you here. Ty

I've been trying today to watch what I eat, Im not doing well, because I don't know what I should or should not eat. I called my Doctor who is a licensed naturopathic physician. In the morning I'm going to call an allergist/immunologist for an appointment. Sometimes we can do more harm to our bodies by not taking matters into our own hands. So I'll keep you guys posted.

TY Phillis for the in the information. girl burning is not the word. When I feel that burning I put Aloe in that area and it works. I use the aloe plant and jojoba oil in a blender. I save it the refrig and when that burning start, I run like a fire women on the job. check out this website about aloe and inflammation.

Hi Angie. I've had pretty good success with aloe cream and aloe gel but, the burning hasn't gone away completely. In the last 10 months, the longest I've gone without burning symptoms is 1 or 2 days. I just picked up a small bottle of emu oil yesterday. A clerk at the healthfood store told me it is supposed to be really good for burns and other inflammatory conditions. Today I went back and picked up gel tabs that contain the emu oil. We'll see what happens.

Good to see you Phyllis! Please keep me updated, I need something I can take me. Sometimes when I’m burning I have to handle it, because I'm going out or already out. So the aloe and the oil I blend together is not convenience, so I have to go burning. You want to hear something funny? I’m making a salad for my dinner, I just finish peeling and slicing the cucumbers; BAM! I get a sharp burning pain in one of my spots; I didn’t know what to do! So I slapped a cucumber on the spot, BAM! Phyllis no lie! It cooled it down and it’s been well over an hour, it still feels good. Wow. May I found something! LOL Maybe cucumbers are not just for eating and puffy eyes.
