For 7 years now I have been trying "desperately" to find a good, recommended Dr./ND in my area with no luck. The ones listed on practitioner finder in Wisconsin just basically "sell" his products.

Can someone PLEASE suggest a good Doc/ND who can help.  I live in Wisconsin near the Illinois border.

I'm hoping there are some other members here who live in my area that can help with suggestions.

I apologize for posting this probably on the wrong section of this forum, but I didn't know where else to post it.

As a 55 yr young female, I just want to keep my hair from falling out.  This has been going on now for 7 years, and I don't have much left.  Please help, so someone who knows something can steer me in the right direction.

would you consider getting a secretor test done
and then with results, eventually reading GTD

and ordering a swami?

Hey what Lola suggests would be a great start and you don't need a ND/MD to do it.


Take  it into your own hands accept full responsibility for your health and diet. Dr. D'Adamo has given us al the tools we just need to apply them.

Are you hypothyroid?  Hair loss is often due to that.

Angela, Great idea!

Rosebud, Looks like there are four practitioners from Wisconsin who can help or point you in the right direction for an N.D.

I really appreciate the feedback and information, however, as I indicated in my post, the MD's listed under this site weren't of any help and basically just sell Dr. D's supplements.  I just finished talking to Lisa Madsen and she is a hair stylist at a salon, follows Dr's D's protocols and sells the supplements at the salon.  Ditto for the others listed; sells the supplements, and somewhat follow his ER4BT.

I'm looking for a "Doctor or ND" who can actually help me in determining why my hair is falling out.

The Endo I saw was useless and said even though all my thyroid tests are "borderline" abnormal,that's fine, and if like, I can "stop at a Walgreen's on the way home and pick up a bottle o Rogaine."  

I'm hoping someone on this site will read my request who lives in Wisconsin or Illinois and refer me to a great MD/ND.

I will not give you any advise today, but I will think about it, as hairloss is not something to over look..

you came here, so, are you doing BTD GENO dieting and for how long already.. hairloss is a sign of something.. thyroid is only one item, but borderline thyroid is on issue I would not overlook. menopause however is the likely reason and will maybe go away again..

have you by chance read about the thyroid protocols in the ER4YT encyclopedia?? you might want to get it through your library.. on the other hand its worth buying.

We here are willing to help in some ways if you wish such help.. if not then finding any good doc is a problem every where.. but I might know of a person I can make a call to in your area and respond later today..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hair loss can also be lack of  protein, too much carbs and/or stress ... our A bodies are easily get stressed, need to find the right balance for everything ... too much exercise (or lack of it), overeating, not having a balanced diet, exposure to pollutants ... hair loss is just a sign in the overall health landscape ... get SwamiX to guide you in the right direction ... and learn to listen to your body and report back to SwamiX so it can then produce a lifestyle suitable for you! an exclusive lifestyle ... I always view SwamiX as having the doc at home ... The beauty of it is that once you get it, it stays with you, 24/7 .... In the meantime, while the dust is still in the air, check your stress levels, watch your food intake, let it be preferably organic, fresh, according to your BT (do get the secretor test done too) or Genotype if easy to determine with what you know about yourself ... back to food intake: quality over quantity!!!  throw away your shampoos, toothpastes, make ups, soaps and use natural alternatives ... I stopped all that and my hair, skin, teeth look cleaner, shinier, healthier than ever ... do the best you can to place yourself in a healthy environment ... do not stress about it, any improvement is a giant step in the right direction ... above all, stay connected here ... plenty of good advice and caring  ...

Ah Rosebud you don't like anything we say.. why do you ask us?


I will ask my question again, what are you eating? Do you have  a secretor test? Do you have a  SWAMI?
We have no magic pill for you...

You do not need an MD or ND to start on the right path.

Borderline abnormal could be abnormal for you. Those are based on a general population, not an individual. B12 deficiency can also cause hair loss.
Fire your doctor.

You might search for a DO.
(Osteopath)
What about this: http://www.uwhealth.org/alternative-medicine/integrative-medicine/10824
Or search alternative medicine or complementary medicine.

I don't know. I searched for a DO and found a wonderful doc who integrates Eastern/Western AND is on our insurance.

Search, find some prospects and then DO a search on them. Turns out that my doc does some teaching and writing that I thought was good.

Also, there are websites that people review doctors on. There is probably also Angie's List local to your area that you can get reviews on as a starting point. http://www.angieslist.com

Schedule an appointment and access the person. Is it a good fit FOR you?

I would at least get one that considers food a medicine, or else you might end up in speaking totally different languages.

YOU are in charge of YOUR HEALTH.
No one else can do it for you.

Best to you.

Andrea -- I never said I "don't like anything you say."  Why would you even make such a statement?  I was merely making a "correction" in doing a search on this site for an MD because I clearly indicated in my first post I had already completed this task, and later it was suggested I do so.   I am eating according to ER4YT for quite some time.    

I'm here because I believe in Dr. D, his protocols, and am lost in trying to figure out on my own, what is causing me to lose my hair.  It has been going on now for 7 yrs, and has been just devastating.  Making negative comments certainly doesn't help and is not appreciated.  I am NOT looking for a magic pill!  This has been a 7 yr battle, and if I were looking for a magic pill I still wouldn't be a follower on this site and Dr. D's protocols.  I take great insult to your comments.  Of course I need an MD/ND -- what if it is my thyroid and need a script for Armour, Naturethroid, etc.

AKArtover -- Yes, I have fired my Doctor(s) and hoping someone will help in trying to find someone who looks outside the box, and knows what he/she is talking about.  Some Dr's are just idiots.

Goldie -- Thank you so much, and I appreciate any phone calls you can make in my quest in finding someone to help me.  Thanks.

Thank you to everyone for being understanding.  Maybe Andrea is having a bad day -- much like the hairs left on my scalp.

What the members are saying is, is that you may need to up your game diet wise and then you "can" figure this out on your own.

The ER4YT diet may not be enough for you anymore.  Members here are suggesting you get your secretor status tested so you can adjust your diet to your secretor status and/or go further, and purchase the SwamiX program, and get a very personalized diet program based on your unique medical and genetic history.

This is why they are saying you don't need an MD or ND to help you solve your hair loss problem.  Since you didn't respond to these suggestions (you may not have understood them) I think that's why Andrea responded the way she did.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Another thing to consider Rosebud.  Type A's have the most subtypes, and depending on GenoType, can have the widest diversity in beneficial/super foods that are ideal for them.

Have you tried the Tincture of Iodine patch test?  It may be all you need to stimulate a possibly sluggish thyroid.

While I agree with the other posters here that it is good to be very self-reliant, I also understand the need to have a "sounding board" or "idea person" to help with the process of finding solutions for issues as they come up.  We do attempt to provide as much benefit as possible to persons requesting aid, and part of that is to suggest additional things you can do to learn more about yourself and what foods will be the most helpful for your individuality.  I am finding that as I adjust diet and heal more, that I am needing less and less supplements, etc.  Just healing foods and digestive help are mostly what is needed to maintain the healing.

Most of us have learned that we save a tremendous amount of money and grief, by focusing more on what we can do for ourselves, rather than stressing over the Dr. not being helpful...

Does Dr. D have a thryoid protocol?  And if so, can someone supply a link?  I searched the site and was unable to find it.

I will also look in Dr. D's books.  I have most of them.

Thanks!

I would not think it as having been insulting you (as you indicate in the above.. But here we do have a tendency not to respond to a question like where is a good doctor.. We are a body of people that really like to start at the beginning and empower you to make yourself healthy. a little info at the beginning helps a lot.

You see that as soon as you say you do BTD then we understand much better what you are facing.. we will for a time many questions all meant to guide you to on answer that will sit right with you..

Like doing the IODINE thyroid test.. Q: do you know how to do it?  where you here a few months ago when we discussed it at length, explaining that if you need iodine then you can self deal with it much better then medicine will do..

on the other hand yes you can get over the counter stuff like armour thyroid support, but I would rather follow the sups from DrD.. Q: did you try them already ? which ones? for how long? in combination or alone one at a time?  what have you tried so far?  why do you think you have hair loss?

If it where your thyroid, can you eat foods that support a thyroid?  (Like: I can not imagine eating liver-so that is not for me) but other foods might be right for you..have you already tried that?  are you a secretor? have you lost weight? or added some? do you sleep well?  

Q: your PLACE OF LIVING or work.. are you in a clean place or is there a mayor highway on all sides?  Lead from exhaust can cause issues that result in hairless.. have you ever done a hair analyses?

The 7 years you are referring.. has anything changed at that time?? other than hormones..

did you try some 5HTP (from healthfoodstore) to see if it might stimulate the liver to make some (little) progesterone or some other thing you may have a temporary need for. ( I used it for 10 days and felt a mayor difference, I stopped until I will need it again) or I might use it to promote serotonin changes .. it can have many effects, including hair growth.

I love my doctor who I got really upset with... he pointed me in the direction of taking responsibility for my own health.. I never looked back.. but I learned to figure some things out for my self, and then I allow my new doc to test out what I wish.. I find that all to often they have no clue unless we can explain all the above first..  like poisons we ingest by air or foods.. they seldom test for it.

What kind of salt are you using?  are you eating protein 3 times a day?

Sorryyy.. my friend has not gotten back to me yet.. but I will follow up..

  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hi Goldie:

The IODINE thyroid test -- Several years I was going to do it, but then there was some information that it was not reliable, so I set that thought aside.  However, I am most definitely willing to try it, since I've exhausted every thing else.  HOW DO YOU DO THE THYROID IODINE TEST?  

In regards to "Armour" or "Naurethroid," this are not available OTC, and need a script.  And since I haven't been able to find a good ND, or get mixed opinions about my thyroid, I haven't successfully tried it.  

In regards to why I have hair loss -- 7 yrs ago when I first noticed a ton of hair in the tub after a shampoo, then clogging the drains to the point I had to bring in a plumber who actually had to cut out the pipe in basement, only to discover "enough  hair to build several wigs."  He said in all his years of plumbing he has never seen so much hair clogging a drain.  Or when I come or brush it out and there is a ton in the comb/brush, counter, hand, clothes, etc.  More importantly, when I began to notice my volume thinning out and seeing thru my scalp.  The loss of hair now, 7 yrs later, is so bad you can see thru the top of my scalp and I have to use a colored powder or spray on the top to try and hide the scalp.  I also went to a derm who confirmed my hair loss, but of course had no answer other than possible heredity baldness.  

I know you suggested LIVER, however, blood type A's should not eat meat.  And to be honest, when I was eating meat before the BTD prior to my hair loss, I wasn't losing hair.  

I don't know if I'm a secretor yet, I haven't lost any weight.

I DEFINITELY don't sleep well.  Tried everything natural. . . nothing works except a sleeping pill.  I have just so much energy I just don't get tired.  As an example, it was 2:00 this morning and I was still wide awake and could not fall asleep, and my alarm goes off at 5:30.  No good -- but I don't want to get addicted to sleeping pills.  I tried many of the herbs for relaxation and sleep, Dr. D's supplements and/or herbs for relaxation and sleep, and they don't work.  Someone they suggested I tried "Mangnesium" because I also have Restless Leg Syndrome and muscle cramps at times, so I bought "Natural Calm" by Peter Gillham. . . didn't work. . . not a bit.  

PLACE OF LIVING or WORK -- I work  in a very clean place (Dentist office) and actually during the last 7 yrs, I worked at 4 different places and still hair loss. And no, none are near a major highway at all.  I've done a hair analysis in the last 7 years, plus saliva testing, and the Doc's who ordered the tests told me some things when they "tried" to interpet the results and had me by a bunch of their supplements, which of course did nothing.  That is why I have been trying so hard to figure this out on my own, following Dr. D's protocols in hopes of stopping my hair loss, but as you can see, I have been unsuccessful.

When I saw the endo 2 yrs ago and she tested me for my thyroid and it came back at 4.86 which to me is high because today they say it should be no higher than 2, she just said it's just borderline abnormal and stop at Walgreen's on your way home and get some Rogaine!  I wanted to smack her as my hair was falling all over her desk.  I told her my hair loss is clearly an indication that something is amiss in my body.

So I came home read all of Dr D's books again, hoping there is something I missed, continued to following the BTD. . . and obviously you can see I have been unsuccessful.          Oh, my kingdom for some hair!

In the 7 years you asked if anything has changed.  Not really, except losing more hair.  I have in my life encountered much stress.  Let's see. . . My mom passed away of colon cancer, one month later my husband filed for divorce and decided he wanted to be with another woman, I lost my job 2 yrs later,about 5 yrs later my sister passed away, lost another job, and then I also fractured many bones in my ankle when I fell down the stairs.  So, yes, I've had stress.

However, most of these things happened "prior" to my hair loss except for the death of my mom and divorce.

You asked if I tried 5HTP -- What is that?  Never heard of it.  Is this a vitamin supplement?


You are so lucky you love your Doctor. .  I wish I could say the same!  It was actually the lack of knowledge and/or  compassion of the Doctor's I've seen that made ME take take responsibility for my own health, hence following the BTD.  


In answer to your question about what kind of salt I use -- I use sea salt.  I eat protein every day, either from Fish, Chicken or Turkey, and eat plenty of almonds, nuts, etc.  

I look forward in hearing from you and what your friend recommends.  Please know I appreciate it immensely, and than him/her for me!  

That is why I love the BTD and this site.  In the many years I have followed Dr. D's protocols, I've also come to learn everyone here is so supportive and wonderful.  Until of course I read  Andrea's post.  Maybe I misinterpreted it, which can happen so many times in emails and/or posts.  If so, I apologize.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and delightful day.  Here in Wisconsin it's actually beautiful and we are having a fabulous Indian Summer.  I do not tolerate the cold at all, so I am not looking forward to what's ahead.

Goldie --

I was going to add this thought on my other post and forgot.

My hair loss began immediately at the onset of peri-menopause, so I know my hormones are involved.  However. . .

Since we know it's my hormones, did the loss of estrogen  & progesterone affect my thyroid, or vise versa?  Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I've read where many women will start to have thyroid issues at the onset of menopause, because the hormones control the thyroid.  

Just a thought.  I've been trying to figure this out for years, and it feels good to have the support of this forum.  Together, we'll get to the bottom of this and then we'll all have to get together somewhere and celebrate with my new hair!

No necessarily into my work, but certainly 'real' NDs.

Hi Goldie:

The IODINE thyroid test -- Several years I was going to do it, but then there was some information that it was not reliable, so I set that thought aside.  However, I am most definitely willing to try it, since I've exhausted every thing else.  HOW DO YOU DO THE THYROID IODINE TEST?  

[color=blue]OK so go and buy IODINE the colored kind not the clear.about 6.- . as you need to see what the results will be.. then paint a swatch 2x2 inches on your underarm or inner legs where the skin is thinnest.. if after 2 hours you see it disappeared ( careful it can rub off.. so for your first try just sit some place quietly.. ) then you needed IODINE.. ( using sea salt may not provide enough IODINE  but your see food should.. but then it becomes a question of absorption. If however you need it then do it once a week until you get enough then once a month or as you think is good..  


In regards to "Armour" or "Naurethroid," this are not available OTC, and need a script.  And since I haven't been able to find a good ND, or get mixed opinions about my thyroid, I haven't successfully tried it.  

There is Armour something available in the health food store.. really cheap.. but I might caution as you say YOU HAVE to much energy already.. so take it only on a week when you do not need to sleep.. try and see if it will actually put you to sleep.. even though for most people it actually gives them energy.. but being burnt out ..It might work the opposite way.. try it ..  

In regards to why I have hair loss -- 7 yrs ago when I first noticed a ton of hair in the tub after a shampoo, then clogging the drains to the point I had to bring in a plumber who actually had to cut out the pipe in basement, only to discover "enough  hair to build several wigs."  He said in all his years of plumbing he has never seen so much hair clogging a drain.  Or when I come or brush it out and there is a ton in the comb/brush, counter, hand, clothes, etc.  More importantly, when I began to notice my volume thinning out and seeing thru my scalp.  The loss of hair now, 7 yrs later, is so bad you can see thru the top of my scalp and I have to use a colored powder or spray on the top to try and hide the scalp.  I also went to a derm who confirmed my hair loss, but of course had no answer other than possible heredity baldness.  

A hairiest then or now will have shown what metal issues you had.. you might ask for the Doctors report and read it.. don't get another test before you study the previous results..  

I know you suggested LIVER, however, blood type A's should not eat meat.  And to be honest, when I was eating meat before the BTD prior to my hair loss, I wasn't losing hair.

Well ... I might just test if meat might be what you need for a while.. crazy.. but some A's seem to need it.. having said that I am not advising .. but you might give it a short trial.. but then there ought to be other foods good for the thyroid.. I have not researched that but you might look around.. I still however think BTD might be best .. BUT MAYBE I question are you truly A???  ask to be tested.. you will have to pay for it as it will not be covered by insurance.. about 20.-30.-.. or do a Lewis Antigen Blood test - a blood test that will tell you your secretor status most accurately.
I don't know if I'm a secretor yet, I haven't lost any weight.

I DEFINITELY don't sleep well.  Tried everything natural. . . nothing works except a sleeping pill.  I have just so much energy I just don't get tired.  As an example, it was 2:00 this morning and I was still wide awake and could not fall asleep, and my alarm goes off at 5:30.  No good -- but I don't want to get addicted to sleeping pills.  I tried many of the herbs for relaxation and sleep, Dr. D's supplements and/or herbs for relaxation and sleep, and they don't work.  Someone they suggested I tried "Mangnesium" because I also have Restless Leg Syndrome and muscle cramps at times, so I bought "Natural Calm" by Peter Gillham. . . didn't work. . . not a bit.  

OK HERE IS another test for your thyroid.. shake your thermometer all the way down the night before.. then in the morning upon waking immediately put it under your arm..do not get up first.. stay as quiet as possible  if the temp seems low by at least one or two degrees below normal , then you have issues.. if not then the mystery goes on.

ANOTHER suggestion.. did you try taking Melatonin.. at your age take 5 mg per day for a week then take 3 mg after that .. it ought to reset your internal sleep clock.  Good luck.

PLACE OF LIVING or WORK -- I work  in a very clean place (Dentist office) and actually during the last 7 yrs, I worked at 4 different places and still hair loss. And no, none are near a major highway at all.  I've done a hair analysis in the last 7 years, plus saliva testing, and the Doc's who ordered the tests told me some things when they "tried" to interpret the results and had me by a bunch of their supplements, which of course did nothing.  That is why I have been trying so hard to figure this out on my own, following Dr. D's protocols in hopes of stopping my hair loss, but as you can see, I have been unsuccessful.

ok at least something in your favor.. does your dentist check his x-ray equipment regularly?? I guess yes and it has been going on even in other offices.. so that might not be your issues.. but amalgam dust in the air might be a bad thing for A's use a mask if you can..

When I saw the endo 2 yrs ago and she tested me for my thyroid and it came back at 4.86 which to me is high because today they say it should be no higher than 2, she just said it's just borderline abnormal and stop at Walgreen's on your way home and get some Rogaine!  I wanted to smack her as my hair was falling all over her desk.  I told her my hair loss is clearly an indication that something is amiss in my body.

send her loving care and when you find out what helped then tell her about your journey..

So I came home read all of Dr D's books again, hoping there is something I missed, continued to following the BTD. . . and obviously you can see I have been unsuccessful.          Oh, my kingdom for some hair!

In the 7 years you asked if anything has changed.  Not really, except losing more hair.  I have in my life encountered much stress.  Let's see. . . My mom passed away of colon cancer, DID YOU TEST YOUR COLON?? Colon cancer develops slowly, but there might be a inherent weakness..

one month later my husband filed for divorce and decided he wanted to be with another woman, I lost my job 2 yrs later,about 5 yrs later my sister passed away, lost another job,  THAT IS INDEED a lot of stress are you dealing with it all on your own or have some real good friend to work through?? Doing the following is a great way to just sit and 'feel' it out.. get a egg timer set it for 1- 2 or 3 minutes.. allow yourself to talk how you feel.. the other person is not required to do anything.. just be there to make sure you are in a loving and protected environment.. for the minutes you choose.  YOU are allowed to say ANYTHING and if you wish you can ask for anything like a foot rub or a good laugh, or a shrug of the shoulders for your self.. the partner friend is not really allowed to ever talk about your 'minutes' the content is not for discussion and no answers are given.. IF you wish you can reciprocate with the same rules.. then after the 'safe minutes' get up and do something else..    t and then I also fractured many bones in my ankle when I fell down the stairs.  So, yes, I've had stress.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
