ive had top of the head thinning more and more and more, it is the most devastating thing, i dont know if its just thinning, or alopecia, every week i have less hair on my crown area, but not necessarily falling clumps, there is just NO regrowth

alot of things are wrong i imagine
iron deficient but ive had that for years
chronic insomnia
stress of being sick
terrible detoxer
i dont know what has caused this all of a sudden

any suggestions on how to get help?
shampoos or natural remedies

should i get on thyroid med even though my adrenals are shot?

i just dread the fact in going to a bunch of doctors, more blood tests and no help
what kind of doctor do i see or what do i google

lacey,

I've been there (still am)

One thing I can tell you is there isn't a shampoo, conditioner, or topical cream that will do ANYTHING for you. It's all happening inside.

I would NOT treat your thyroid until you've conquered adrenal fatigue. (I've been battling the temptation but am glad I haven't dove into thyroid meds... because my adrenals sometimes can't even handle a long drive across town!! much less sythetic hormones)

You should focus on these 5 things first...

1) Killing Lyme (Dr B always says... when in doubt... "It's Lyme, stupid."

2) Diet (Search Lyme Inflammation Diet)

3) Adrenals (search "adrenals" on here)

4) Sleep(may fix with adrenal support)

5a) Exercise (3/4 times per week, anaerobic)
5b) Detox (epsom salt baths, lemon water, saunas)


Then you can focus on iron levels, co-infections, nutritional deficiencies, etc etc

Most who have lost hair during Lyme treatment have experienced regrowth once treatment ended.

More specifically... amoxy killed Lyme which in turn helped regrow hair.
