Alopecia is pretty unfortunate and annoying but not hopeless. Also, congrats on baby number 2.You're right, hormones play a huge part in hair loss and stress as well. Stress also messes with your hormones so, it's like a double hit. Plus, it's... (more)

My daughter started losing hair slowly 2 months after getting the gardisal vaccination. Her initial blood tests came back clean, but I've a gut feel the vaccination and aluminum in it started her hair loss. Can Paleo help with this at all?

I developed alopecia about two years ago when I was dabbling in raw veganism. What does your daughter eat? I hadn't picked up meat-eating/paleo 'til early this year, and that's when my hair started growing back in full. I tried taking biotin and... (more)

I would try the autoimmune component for a month or two to see if that helps (even though it sounds really tough to give up nightshades). I've been very impressed with PrimalGirl's success fighting hidradenitis suppurativa once she removed... (more)

I think they are bogus. Saying X (in this case low-carb) = Symptom, but then singing the praises of n=1 experimentation is contradictory. Let's put the shoe on the other foot. If someone came onto Paleohacks and started lambasting folks because... (more)

For my young daughter there was a gluten connection. It went away once she was strictly off gluten, six years ago when she was eight. She had several dime-size patches of hair loss, perfectly circular, where the hair would break off at the scalp.... (more)

Congrats on the weight loss! If you've been low-carb for a while, the water retention from eating some will be really noticeable at first. After a while, your body will get used to them again and not retain as much. At least that has been the... (more)
