Ashwagandha/Anthony William of Medical Medium

Posted on June 6, 2018 at 3:34pm 1 Comment

Hello ---

I have not been on here for quite some time.  Still coping with the alopecia areata and it has been 10 years!  I still routinely get kenalog injections when spots occur and so far it has helped.  I would just like to find out how to stop this though, like many of us.

Recently a friend turned me onto Anthony William of Medical Medium.  Of course I checked to see if he talks about alopecia and he does.  He recommends Ashwagandha and I wonder if anyone has tried…

Tomorrow is the day

It has been a while since I have posted on here.  Been dealing with the hair loss in circular patches that sometimes group themselves or just singularly for 7 years.  The last couple of years rewarded me with a patch up front which prompted a severe part on the opposite side to cover it up.  That patch took a very long time to respond to injections and the hair has only grown in white.  Those white hairs accept nothing -- no hair color or henna -- ok, the henna slightly worked but the yellow…

Coloring the white regrowth?

Posted on September 21, 2013 at 2:51pm 6 Comments

I am having trouble with posting in the forums section and thought I would try here instead.

My question: Is it possible to successfully color the white regrowth?

In the past I have only tried Henna and it made my white hairs turn yellow, hence looking more obvious than the white regrowth. I have a large patch at the top of my head up front which has been preventing me from cutting bangs since I need every hair on my head to cover up missing patches at the moment. I use…

Do you ever wish you could blame your alopecia for something?

Posted on March 17, 2013 at 1:30am 1 Comment

That is how I feel tonight. My alopecia struck me 6 years ago at the age of 35. It came 2 years after my second child was born. My thyroid was not being treated properly and I was depressed. In fact, depression has lurked in and out of my life for as long as I could remember. I have spent a lot of time trying to understand my situations in life. To this day it is unclear to me why I was handed the life I got. I know that sounds scary but if you were in my shoes you would question it almost…

Your thoughts on AA and health insurance for the self-employed

Posted on October 4, 2010 at 1:15pm 1 Comment

Argh! I'm really stuck. I've had AA for 3.5 years now and until recently, had been spot-free since Xmas of last year. There is a 3cm on the top side of my scalp and I already went in to receive my requisite injections. Prior to this I had completely changed my diet and upon discovering that I'm anemic I am also Gluten and Dairy Intolerant.



We all know AA is sporadic, right?!! Well...my DH is on the verge of possibly being self-employed. So now we have to figure out the health… Continue

Hi Georgie. Yes, we live in Sedona in the winter and love it. I have a small vacation rental business (5 houses) here (www.RoamSweetHomes.com) and so we stay in one of our houses. It is beautiful and we hate leaving when May comes.
Have a wonderful visit.

I went from a small patch in April to bald in July and it stayed that way till sept when I started a low carb diet then all of a sudden it started to grow back. It's still kinda funny in the back (I have a ring shaped spot) but the rest is growing like weeds. Then I started seeing that some people with alopecia have had luck with the gluten thing! And that would make sence. I just hope it continues to work. For us both
