Mikeo recently mentioned that following the Genotype diet, he experienced hair growth again after being bald for 15 years!  
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-lr4yt/m-1272627856/s-25/

Mike's hunter diet down-tuned his slightly overactive thyroid;  but the powerful thing about eating for our genotype is that whichever direction our system is imbalanced, it will regulate in the right direction.

My hair was falling out with increasing speed after menopause.  When I started the genotype diet, I found that throughout my body, things began to improve that I had not realized were out of balance:
I began to sleep through the night again.
My hair loss stopped progressing, leveled out for a few months and now my hair is beginning to come in thicker again.  (nearly 3 years on the GTD)
Chronic low energy is starting to reverse.  Enthusiasm is returning.
Depression and a sense of overwhelm is nearly completely gone.
Tooth decay has virtually stopped.
IBS is nearly gone and only appears as an isolated event during highly stressful moments.
My weight completely normalized!  It happened in 3 stages, over nearly 3 years, but I'm now at my college weight.

This is the short list!  And these are things that happened on the genotype diet.  10 years on the BTD improved my health a lot, but the real power of transformation for me came with eating as a Nomad.

Discovering your genotype will be relatively quick and simple.  It would really, really help you if you'll do a secretor test.  It's important, Rose.  That's why so many people are suggesting it for you.  This is a big step you can take to empower yourself and get moving in a positive direction with your hair concerns.




Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Andrea:

I follow the BTD according to my blood type A+  And I have to admit I feel fabulous.  No health issues, Do some Yoga, walking and biking.  Prior to this awful hair loss everyone would say I most definitely don't look my age and look 10+ years younger.  It's amazing how much our hair can make us look so much older.  And of course when we start to look like those "smilies" faces, we begin to look like an alien.  I don't want to look like this.  I just wish I knew what's causing it and what I can do.  I pray every night for an answer.

I'm more than willing to take the necessary supplements to stop this hair loss and grow hair, but I do NOT want to use Rogaine!

I'm just getting ready to order the secretor test, although I'm sure it won't help in stopping my hair loss, but it will tell me more and tweek my eating.

All help is so greatly appreciated and I wish everyone on this site that has been so support only knew how much I cried after reading all your posts, referrals, links, and suggestions.  

Hugs,

Rose

If the secretor test comes back Secretor, then the next step would be to either determine your Genotype per the book, or preferably, get SWAMI and individualize to get the most bang...  

I know my healing stepped up tremendously when I started using the GTD, although it may have been the next step that I was about to do with BTD...  It is hard to know since I don't have a control group for me...   

Something else I just thought about ...  You might try the Cortices Technique described in the video at this link...  I did this technique and my head has been healing tremendously, but I have no idea if it will help hair loss...

Ok so go get a secretor test and a SWAMI and refine your diet further.


Like Victoria said it made a difference in her health even though she was on the BTD.

Be brave and don't defeat yourself with your own doubts.  

There are always ways to change our own actions to improve our state of health.  

Focus on the direction you want to go in, more than the circumstance you don't like.  

As Dr. D has said in many ways, you didn't get in this predicament overnight.  Whatever state we find our health in was years in the making.

Find an optimistic attitude inside yourself, be willing to make some changes and keep an open mind to the benefits you might gain from them.

http://www.bodytalksystem.com/learn/access/cortices.cfm



Thanks for the link Joe, I think you might give it a try Rosebud.

Rosebud, you say you are feeling great except for your hair. I say you are not listening to what your body is trying to tell you because you are not great, you are extremely stressed. I say this as another  stressed out "A", difference is I recognize what's going on with me and I know I'm stressed even though I'm in "great" shape (it's been showing up in my knees). You have had to deal with an incredible amount of "bad stuff" going on in your life, are you still carrying it around with you?

Do swamix, it will change your diet a great deal (I did it because I wanted to eat more cheese and I'm not sorry I did because of all the other positive changes ).


What kind of exercise are you getting? Is it "A" appropriate? I like this http://www.sensiblehealth.com/Y-Dan.xhtml, but it isn't the only exercise I get.

Do some deep breathing and stay tuned to this board  , there are some great people around here.

Grey Rabbit:

You're right, I shouldn't have said, "I feel fabulous," however, I was trying to convey other than my hair loss I don't have any other major issues at this time.  

I believe in a previous post I indicated I was quite upset with the endo I saw when she told me to stop at Walgreen's and buy some Rogaine, and "they have very nice wigs today," No. . . something is amiss with my body because of all this hair I'm losing.  
My body is most definitely telling me something is out of whack.

But what????  I've been so tenacious (some times too much) in trying to figure this out. Not just for me, for other women going through this as well.  Have you noticed lately, there are so many women balding on top?  What's going on?

OK, I'm heading over to the order section now to order my secretor test.  The reason I have been putting it off is because of $$$$  I lost my job last year, and actually had to bring someone into my home to rent out my basement in order to keep my house.

Wishing everyone a most "smiley" kind of day!

Saw this on tv the other day. I would be very hesitant to do anything chemical, but it seems like there are other options and they do a free analysis that might be worth learning about your particular issue.

I would suggest you put your sales shield up if you pursue this.

AKArtlover:

SHOCKED!!!!  It would be remiss of me to say the thought and/or suggestion for "Hair Club for Women" was even a suggestion.  This is hair transplants!  They cut a huge section about 8-10 inches long of your scalp in the back of your head in order to get the follicles, and transplant them in your sparse areas.  It's just awful.

I'm sure it was just a thought, and I do appreciate your input, however. . . I thought this forum and everyone on here believes in addressing our health issues from a natural standpoint in trying to address it.  Whether it be in changing our diet, supplements and all around positive thinking.  Hair Club for Women is anything but what this site is about.   Shame of you.  I may as well get some Rogaine or buy wig!  More feasable thank spending $10,000 on hair transplants.

As we know and several members have posted, something is amiss in my body which needs to be addressed.  

We'll just ignore that suggestion; I know you meant well, but Ugh!

I refuse shame.
What I thought was interesting was that they could look at the issue closely and that it may help you understand as a diagnostic. That's all. That's why I said put your sales shield up.

See what happens when I post like a New Yorker?

Y-Dan looks interesting.  I wish there were some clips of the different moves, but it appears to be similar to a type of Qigong.

My suggestion would be to find a doctor who will treat your hypothyroidism with desiccated thyroid, such as Westhroid.  The second thing I would do is take biotin 5000 to 8000 mcg a day for your hair.  Both these measures helped my hair immensely.  I thoroughly understand your frustration!

Dr. D:  I tried the link you suggested and actually tried to send an email with my dilemma, only for the email to not go through, and also tried calling a few, only for the number to be disconnected!  Ugh!  The frustration.

My scalp is screaming to be heard.  I will pray again tonight.

rosebud,
If you're interested in working with Dr. D'Adamo, check into the University of Bridgeport Health Sciences Center, Naturopathic Medical Clinic.  Dr. D is the supervisor.
http://www.drpeterjdadamo.com/UB_shift/

Several people from the Forum have gone there, and it's a good opportunity to get the appropriate medical testing and a truly individualized approach to helping each patient become healthier.  It is less expensive than going to Dr. D's personal clinic.

You could get in touch with them and see if they are accepting patients at this time.

Something has developed!  Am I finally getting somewhere!

Having the day off work today I decided to look on the internet for some information regarding "eye twitching."  Just this last week for some reason my left eye has been twitching.  I've never experienced this before.  Well. . .

As I did some searching I discovered numerous sites which indicated eye twitching is caused by a lack of Vitamin 12, AND along with eye twitching one of the other symptoms are HAIR LOSS!!!!

Oops . . I posted before I was done.  Anyways, another symptom which goes along with a lack of B12 and eye twitching and hair loss is. . . Anemia!  My ferritin tested at only 12 last year!  As you said, the picture is starting to come together.

It was also indicated that people with low B12 also have stomach/digestion and absorption problems.  Just as Dr. D indicates as an A.  They recommend only a "Sub lingual B12 together with Folic Acid and Biotin which work all together.

NAP does not make a sublingal B12 as such.  Any good recommendations?  Along with this I plan on also taking some Biotin for the hair, I'm sure Iron as well.

I should also order a digestion enzyme along with the Secretor test.  What are you thoughts?

Anemia usually means low iron, so iron-rich foods are in order.  Here is one site with some - you need to sort per BT, though...
http://www.healthcastle.com/iron.shtml

Ghee is great for assisting in gut healing.
Nutritional yeast has a mix of B vitamins.
Polyflora A is a very good probiotic for Type A.
