"I am so glad to hear that he is not experiencing bullying. That is my biggest fear for my daughter. I do believe that her diet has played a huge role in us being able to maintain her hair. I too have recently read a book called the auto immune fix…"
"We use Garden of Life Kids probiotic. She loves the taste and it also has Vitamin D which I like because we are dairy free and live in the MidWest where we can have months of cold weather and minimal sunshine. "
"Ok well you are definately on the right track it sounds like. That's the thing with alopecia though, it comes and goes for some people. I'm just about to start reading a book called Food pharmacy, it should be available in English soon as…"
"Hi - What probiotic do you give your daughter? We have tried several and haven't been successful. I do give the omega-3 and a multivitamin. I'm looking into diet changes, but haven't done anything yet."
"We live in the U.S. My good friend is a functional medicine physician in Seattle and has been a great help to us. I firmly believe the only reason my daughter has hair today is because of the recommendations she has given me. We do a…"

Yes! We gave our daughter a DTaP October 2016 and it was fine. No loss. In May 2017 we gave her a Hep A and IPV. Her hair started falling out a couple weeks later. 2 large patches that developed over the course of 4 months and some overall…"

hello, my daughter Paige is 11 now. has had alopecia since she was 5. her hair comes and goes. we are finally in a place where it doesn't rule our world. she handles it like such a trooper. right now, she has about 10% of her hair. she'll wear it in a side pony but bald spots are showing all over the place. most of her classmates are aware and really never say too much about it. when we are in unfamiliar places, I notice people looking at her, but she doesn't pay it much mind. we are extremely lucky that she has this confidence, and hoping it continues as she enters her teenage years. we recently took a drastic approach to her eating habits. she's been gluten free for a while, but we always let her cheat--now we are GF, dairy and red meat free--eating only clean food. hoping we see a change. she doesn't seem too interested in getting a wig and it def has to be her decision at this point. we found that attending support events, whether it's thru CAP or NAAF have been really helpful. it's so important for them to know they aren't alone. please feel free to reach out anytime. like I mentioned we are finally in an acceptance stage of this disease and it's a beautiful place. it takes time.
