Project End Alopecia (Gluten-Free): Day 109 – CONCLUSION

September 14, 2018 Day 109 and the conclusion of our Project End Alopecia with gluten-free diet experiment. I'm bringing this journal to an end with a few notes: While on a gluten-free journey, we are seeing hair regrowth in previous hair loss patches. Hair growth rate varies between spots around the head (some spots are more stubborn than others). Further hair loss seems to be[...]

September 10, 2018 We've been about 90% gluten-free with small distractions here and there, and daily topical treatment using ginger juice + essential oils.

Project End Alopecia (Gluten-Free): Day 56

July 23, 2018 Day 56 of our journey, and we have been slightly off the gluten-free diet plan track. Because... summer happened! Little Claire's grandparents (my parents) visited from halfway around the world on July 4th. So naturally we had a ton of fam time, fam outings, and some getaways. Even with the best intention to stay on our gluten-free track, I realised we had[...]

Project End Alopecia (Gluten-Free): Day 34

June 30, 2018 I can't believe we made it to 34 days. Wow! We are one week into the summer break. No school and a weirdly rainy and gloomy summer in Vancouver so far means we are lazing around indoors more than we'd like. Little Claire's appetite hasn't been the best because we haven't been keeping up with physical activities and the much anticipated time[...]

But in keeping with the original intention of starting this journal update, I still think better late than never. Our gluten-free diet update We're still going[...]

June 5, 2018 So I've been MIA for Day 8 and Day 9 blog entries, because life in our fam-ville got a little busy the last few days. But we're still here, still going strong with the gluten-free + topical ginger and essential oils treatment regimen. And I can't believe it's already Day 10 of our journey. Meals & snacks Food wise there hasn't been[...]

Project End Alopecia (Gluten-Free): Day 7

June 2, 2018 Can't believe it's been a week! Going gluten-free has gotten its handle on us, and as we learn more and more each day, it seems to be more doable and somewhat easier. Especially with all the awesome gluten-free recipes on Pinterest these days, restrictive diet probably has never been easier. There is at least a handful of gluten-free version of any food[...]

Does Vitamin D help hair growth in Alopecia Areata?

Does Vitamin D help hair growth in Alopecia Areata? In this post, I look at the importance of Vitamin D not only for overall health but also for improving the outcome of Alopecia treatment.
