I am 35years old. I have 2 kids (ages 10 and 8) who have Autism, Celiac Disease and Tourettes, OCD's. I have Celiac and we maintain a strict diet. I am currently staying home and homeschooling the kids. Things are stressful but always have been. I am healthy. I am on no medications. We are (and have been for 7 years)wheat/gluten free, dairy free and egg free and very little artificial or preservatives free. We just tried a Vegan diet for a year but that is when my hair loss got really bad. We are now back on a healthy Diet of a well rounded, mostly organic home cooked meal. We take many supplements and have been doing biomedical with the kids for 7 years now. My thyroid is fine. My monthly cycle is every 29 days. I am at a good weight (125lbs) and exercise often (swim 3x/week and jog 2x/week). Hair loss began prior to swimming.
My hair loss is mostly at the sides of my head. Really bad when I comb it no matter how gentle I am. I am assuming it is bad in the shower as well. I take daily: NuHair Regrowth System, Selenium, Fish Oil, Magnesium, 5HTP, Iron, MultiB, SeriPhos (just started),Biotin, Vitamin C, Calcium (starting again). I also use Argon Hair loss Shampoo (just started), phytocayne hair serum, phytocane leave in conditioner. I have new growth but still losing hair. I know I need to be patient but am I on to something? How long does it take to even our hair loss to have a noticible change? I am waiting for my new order of "cleaning agents" to come in the mail. (I live on a remote island in Alaska). Something I can do in the meantime?
The one thing was...I had some leftover Artemisia and Clove and some Olive Leaf. I started taking that and my husband came home form being out of town for 1 week and he kept staring at me. He said he hadn't seen my circles under my eyes totally disappear before. That is a sign of yeast/parasite, etc., right?
Then I started thinking about the Autism recovery with my kids. Then I thought about yeast, parasites and stuff. Can this be Candida? I did the spit in a glass test. And got a positive. I can either feel myself losing hair or my scalp is itching(just a annoying little zing) or both.
Has anyone found that Candida and/or parasite, etc. cleaning stopped hair loss? Any advice? What more should I be doing? Does it just take time? How much time to notice a different once you really start taking all vitamins, etc.? Are there certain dosages of certain vitamins that works better? Any help or information would be welcomed please!
