I have been convinced that a very overlooked, non toxic drug called low dose naltrexone, LDN, can help with alopecia. I discussed with my functional dr to prescribe it. I brought her all my research.…Continue

"Interesting information here! I have no problem with hair loss, but my wife has started a keto diet and she thinks that it somehow affects the hair loss. What do you think?"

Low Dose Naltrexone May Help So Many

Posted on January 27, 2016 at 11:44pm 2 Comments

My 7 year old daughter will be starting LDN this week.  This drug does wonders for autoimmune conditions by blocking endorphins through the night.  The body then releases an overabundance of endorphins the following day to compensate. The endorphins heal inflamation (of course anyone with alopecia is inflammed.  C Reactive protien blood test will confirm this) and balance the immune system, targeting the true problem, rather than a temporary toxic drug.  There are no side effects, not…


C Reactive Protein Test and Inflammation

Posted on January 13, 2016 at 9:03pm 1 Comment


I am wondering if anyone has taken this blood test and what your numbers were.  It is a test for inflammation.  My daughter was a 12.4. Normal is a 0.0 to a 4.4.  Clearly she has silent inflammation, a very dangerous condition that is becoming chronic for her.  After many blood tests, this is the only abnormality showing up.  I believe the inflammation is causing the autoimmunity.  I an curious if anyone else is having this experience.  The name of the test is the C…


C Reactive Protein Test

Hello,  We are in the process of bloodwork.  It has been a year and I refuse to accept that my daughter will never have hair again.  

Throughout our journey I have recently had much bloodwork done.  My daughter's results showed extreme infammation in her body.  Her C reactive Protien was a 12.2.  This confirms that she is indeed inflammed.  Silent inflammation of course if very bad news for long term health: cancer, stroke, diabetes, on and on.  

We are doing an…

I am wondering if anyone is going this route?  We ditched the steroids about a month ago after 8 months of treatment.  I am juicing organic fruits and greens each day.  We have stocked our kitchen with vegan, non GMO, no gluten, no dairy, pure foods.  Our new strict diet is of the highest quality and nutrition packed.  Supplements include D3, Omega, B12, Calcium, and probiotics.  It has been 6 weeks and hair is still falling rapidly.  I was so hopeful it would slow by…

I'm so sorry you are having a tough time. It's very difficult to watch your child go through this and not be able to do anything about it. Alopecia Areata is very unpredictable. It could turn around at any time and let the hair regrow, and never come back again. There is no viable treatment yet, but a lot of research is being done now and I predict that in a very short time there will be some good answers. To keep abreast of the latest news on treatments (there is no cure at this time, either), check in with, the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. You can trust this organization.
