What do you mean purple under eyes?

I believe you should test for

1.  candida

2.  parasites

3.  heavy metals

4.  vitamin levels

5.  food allergies

6.  C reactive protein (inflammation)

7.  fungal infections

This is a start.  It can rule out certain things that cause leaky gut and autoimmunity.

Hello all. Im a mum to triplet girls. I have one of my girls with Alopecia Totalis. Just after her first birthday her hair started falling out. within two weeks it was all gone. she is now 2.5 years old and have little blonde eyelashes growing back. We have been to several dermatologist who just keep prescribing creams. i have tried all the creams, but they dont seem to be doing much. started seeing a Trychologist how has given us La Tyrosine powder. Your body naturally generates this amino acid, however alopecia suffers lack this amino acid. Alexandra has been on it for 6 months. she has hair growing on her eyebrows and eyelashes, and some facial hair, its still baby hair and any other mothers believe that diet plays a significant part?

Thanks pterese! That is pretty much what I think too... we are now consulting a doctor who analysis her hormonsystems into detail (Endokrynologist) and a holistic  working doctor who surveils everything. My daughter had Cortison-therapy too, but it did not help at all, only side-effects! She said "no", esp. because she is a semi-professional athlete. She tries to balance her diet, hard because she lives in a host-family right now... we will do what we can. It is nerv-wrecking. I do not sleep. So sorry for you and the 7-year-cutie. Shouldn't be like that...

Hello Magdalene,  I am in the same exact place with my 7 year old.  It is heartbreaking to watch, no doubt.  I am wondering if she has changed her diet in any way?  Here is what I have learned:

1.  Autoimmune disease is caused by inflammation

2.  Inflammation is caused by

a.  candida leaking from the intestines

b.  parasites

c.  heavy metal toxins in the blood

d.  food allergies that you may not be aware of

e.  poor diet:  too much sugar, too much gluten, processed foods

f.  stress

It takes time to figure out which one of these is the trigger. I am convinced there IS A TRIGGER.  Bloodwork will be a start to try and eliminate some of those listed above.

Hello. I am new. My daughter was diagnosed AA just a month ago. She is 18. She had the most beautiful hair one can think of... now it is almost gone. She is tough, but... well. The worst is yet to come. We live in Germany. I just wanted to say hello, no chat-power left ...: ( I am hopeful to get some inspiration and hope here. I am not really used to be in chatrooms...
