My daughter has been diagnosed with AA aged 2 years. As you all appreciate it is very confronting and I have been through sooo many emotions. She's had it for 6 months now and continues to develop new patches ( she now has about 5 patches on her head- 4 of which I can cover). I feel I'm Now ready to begin talking about it on this website and I have to say... My hat goes off to all of you. You are all such inspirational souls and if my daughters AA continues or gets worse, I feel so comforted she will have this forum and I hope she develops the positive, self loving attitudes you possess.
She has had digestive issues since birth and continues to do so. We're now seeing a naturopath and we have her off dairy, gluten and she's taking fish oil, probiotics, zinc and colloidal silver. Im hoping once we get her gut flora healthy her AA will improve. After that long intro (sorry) I was wondering if anyone had tried the GAPS diet and did it do anything for them?
Also has anyone read Molly Vazquez's book, alopecia and wellness. What did you think of it? Is it worth a read?
Thanks again to all of you out there making us feel like we're not alone. I am so grateful to have found this forum and feel I have learnt so much already.
