Hair Loss Diet Book?

by Lou

Hi, I have been reading about the hair loss diet as I have been suffering for almost 2 years now (30 year old female). My doctor is useless so I have set about working out an approach myself.

Is there a book available to purchase? I have seen the FAQ book, but wondered if anything else was available? The web site is useful but I wonder if I am missing a source of info on the diet.

Look No Further
by: Sheree

Hi, Lou,

The information on hair loss and diet on the internet is sparse. When I was searching for information for hair loss, the same websites kept popping up over and over again. It was very frustrating.

The best book I found on hair loss for women was contained within Dr. Christiane's material. The information was presented in a very clinical, matter of fact sort of way.

In order to reach people, we have to get to the heart. It has always been my intention to present the information to get an emotional response. This is where true change begins.

It's extremely difficult to remove wheat and sugar from the diet. In order to do this, a powerful change has to begin within a human being, forcing them to drop their addictions and begin their recovery.

This concept is where other programs end and ours begins.

So look no further. You are in the right place. It's hard to believe. Once you peruse the website, and dig deeply within the content located here, you will be inspired beyond your imagination. And you will recover, as so many others have before.

Much Harder Than it Looks
by: Sheree


Yes, the diet is difficult to execute. A lot of people are super excited when they realize how simple the concept is. Once their sugar withdrawals begin, it's a whole different animal.

It's one thing to point out the flaw, and something else entirely to execute the principles. But this is where you start. You can do it. We'll guide you through this.

Sit tight. It's a miraculous transformation. In three months, you'll wonder why you were ever depressed, and you'll be helping to pull others up to where you are.

Thanks, you have cheered me up after a week of utter despair! I even changed dinner tonight, no point delaying the start till tomorrow!
I'll keep nosing around the site for information and help.

Thanks for the quick response today.

Which forum will that be in?
Thank you.

Hair Regrowth Testimonials
by: Sheree

Hi there,

Go to the hair regrowth forum, and there are people there who have removed sugar and wheat, and have had spontaneous hair regrowth. Also, if you look in the main forum, there are posts where hair loss was restored using this same method.

There are a lot of posts, so it may take a bit of digging. Good luck to you!

Warm regards,

21 Year Old Female Hair Loss

by Marlene

Hi Everyone! So I started noticing my hair thinning about 2 years ago when I was 19. I went to the doctor and he did my blood work and said I was iron deficient, but that my thyroid was fine. He told me to start taking iron supplements and I did religiously, hoping that that was the cause of my hair loss.

My iron level was at 12 and over the course of about a year it rose to 52. Even with that increase I still noticed my hair shedding. I dreaded looking in mirrors and seeing how thin my hair had become. I felt like I was being very proactive with my hair loss. I changed shampoos, stopped curling my hair, but nothing seemed to work. I've always had long hair, but I could no longer keep the same style without the weight making it look so thin.

I took the plunge from having hair that was up to my belly button and got a bob hair cut. The shorter length allowed me to disguise the thinning better. During this time I was working out 5-6 days a week and I would do everything from bikram, swimming, kick boxing zumba, weight lifting and running. Now looking back I'm sure I didn't get enough protein and I was working out way too much.

Well, my questions are is weight lifting bad because it raises testosterone, which turns into DHT and what are your thoughts on the Viviscal hair loss supplement?

I Want My Health & Hair Back

by Yvette

I am 38 years old and I've lost a significant amount of hair at the crown of my hair. I went to specialists over the years and have been told that is is hereditary. I am at my wits end and want to try an all natural healthy lifestyle with whole foods, supplements and exercise. Hey, if it doesn't grow my hair back, I would at least be healthier, period.

Whole Foods and Hair Loss

by Frank

Hello out there. I'm a male with thinning and balding hair. I have a few questions about whole foods. Yes, I read about whole food on this site. Is chopped chicken a whole food? If not, is it then a no go?

I'm living with my parents, and I don't decide what to buy, so it's difficult for me to buy all the right things to eat.

I also have a problem every morning with breakfast, I just don't know what to eat. Normally I eat eggs, but it isn't good to eat too many eggs. What do you mean about organic oat meal with organic milk?

Hair loss is a devastating thing, I hate it so much! It's really destroying my life, I feel like everybody's looking at my thinning hair. I will do what ever it takes to regrow my lost hair, really!

Yesterday I decided to shave my hair down to 3mm, will it help my hair to grow back healthier? I started to use emu and almond oil, hopefully it will help, maybe not much, but even if it helps a little, I will be happy.

I read the success stories in here, and they gave me a little hope to get my lost hair back. Can I really get my hair back? As i said before my hair is thinning, and on the top of my head you can see my scalp, even when my hair wasn't this short!

I really hope I can get my hair and my life back again!

Nutrition Supplementation and Hair Loss

by John

I am 29 and began getting hair receding at about 24 years old but it wasn't noticeable until about 26 or so. When I was 27 I went to a clinic that specialized in nutrient therapy, called Orthomolecular medicine.

To make a long story short, I went there because of anxiety issues and wanted to take a natural approach. They did some nutrient blood tests and found I was low in several nutrients. I was given a nutrient formula and within a few months, my hair stopped receding.

After a year or so on the formula, I stopped it and the receding started back big time. I never made the connection until restarting the formula again and then stopping again. I am now on the formula again but my hair has receded and thinned so much while off the nutrients that I am now about a number 3A on the Hair Loss Chart.

It is weird because I have been on other high dose nutrient formulas and only this one stopped hair loss. I am on a strict Paleo diet with plenty of green juices, high quality meats, and all other natural foods. It is high fat, though, because it is Paleo.

I went off the nutrients while doing the Paleo diet and taking various Food Based nutrients, but the hair loss continued. So, the formula does do something and nothing else has worked.

p.s. I refuse to use those harsh chemicals!

Changes For Hair Loss Nutrition

by Owen
(West of Ireland)

This is my story of losing my hair at 21. I went from having a nice head of hair to bald on top and rough on the sides. I grew up in a very stressful household and this eventually led me to alcohol to deal with it. I took alot of drugs too and i also suffered from severe anxiety and panic attacks. This eventually let to Xanax and other tablets for relief.

I became very addicted for many years and it came to the stage where I was on the edge of life and death with drink, drugs and tablets. Luckily I had bumped into a very old lady friend of mine for a couple of months prior to my meltdown and made me realize I had to change my life before it was too late. I decided that i wanted to get clean and free from this awful addiction.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I gave up the tablets with a very traumatic withdrawals, I gave them up way too quick, without medical supervision, very silly and lucky to be alive really. Anyway 2 years later I am free of my tablet addiction, I still drink quite a bit though. Iam Irish, so I suppose that's an excuse for now! :) and a lot of things are very positive.

Recently I have changed my diet quite a bit and am eating a lot of whole organic meals and trying to find a good balance for my individual being.

My hair is coming back a lot in the past year, I think it's mainly because I have eased the stress and I am at the other side of the withdrawals from the tablets, I feel at ease now.

Now Iam really interested in learning about nutrition and mostly of all how to get my hair back thick. Its there now, only you cant see it! I have lots of energy and want to learn peace.

Should I Continue Cool Laser Treatment

by Jenny

Hello, I am new to this site (and the diet). I am 36 years old and have been told I have androgenic alopecia and a little of the telogen alopecia. My hair has been thinning at a really good rate for almost a year now. There is no history in my family so I am pretty sure it is the blood sugar. But my question is, before I figured this all out to where it makes sinse I started at a hair restoration place with the cool laser treatments twice a week. I am wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these and if I should continue.

I just started the diet 4 days ago, a big change because I normally skip meals, I never ate much sugar but never really took care of myself! Any comments appreciated. Thanks!

Lasers and Hair Growth
by: Sheree

I have no proof that this product does not work. If anyone else knows anything about this method, can you comment on this?

One thing I can say for sure is this. What if the company goes out of business? Then what? Are the results permanent? I'll bet when the treatment stops, any strides you've made towards hair growth will stop. I'd look for a more permanent solution.
This diet is a permanent cure for alopecia!

Don't waste your money on laser
by: Anonymous

hi there,

I did laser treatments in a salon for about 8 months with no visible improvement. (I noticed more hair regrowth on this diet, which I've been on for about 5 months.)

I think these companies take advantage of people's desperation, most of us are willing pay/do anything to get our hair back!

Wishing you lots of patience and strength on the diet!

All the best,

by: Nat

Hi Jenny, years back I got sucked in to buying a laser comb. It didn't work and cost me a thousand dollars. You can see how I've been going over the past 8 months. I posted new pictures last week. Sheree is so right with saying the diet is permanent. All others are just temporary if they work at all. Good luck

Wow, you made my day...another who has hair regrowth from diet:-)))

I Need Hair Loss Diet Motivation

by Nicky

Hi guys, I thought about going on this diet and was wondering if there is anybody among you, who is very dedicated to this and disciplined? I thought that it would be a great idea if we just keep us accountable every other day (!) and give each other tips etc.

That would be not only great for us to keep on being motivated, but I totally believe we can encourage each other so this method just HAS to work! :)

I'll create an extra gmail account if anybody of you is willing to do this with me :)

We can do this. And happy growing to all!

Quick question:

Is the creator of this thread still seeking others to maintain their hair loss diet support? I sent an email to the email address provided and didn't receive a response, so I thought I'd ask here.

Thank you.

Hi there; I have alopecia to the point where people are asking me outright if I'm going bald! Lovely!! No punches pulled this side of the world I'm afraid. It's devastating for me.

I've been trying to combat the loss of my hair for almost ten years using aldactone; minoxidol; potions/lotions but never diet!! I'm addicted heavily to sugar, bread, cakes so I realise I'm a perfect candidate for this new way of life.

I have also been diagnosed with auto-immune disease (though no one can actually tell me what that is or means) and tested positive for lupus (though technically I don't have lupus?????).

I want my hair back...

I don't allow too many people to get close to me; only a few family/close friends actually know for sure that I'm losing my hair, though lots of people suspect though I hide it as well as I can. I worry all the time about the moment when I wake up and it's all gone. My head tingles, and I wait for the hair to fall out.

I've tried lots of shampoo; the latest one from a very well known house of hair (Kesastase) made especially for thinning hair, burnt my scalp and the hair broke off. I cried some more. But tears really don't help so today is the first day of my new way of life - please note I didn't say to start my diet. I believe there's more than just a little truth in the premise behind this regime and I'm going to go 150% at it. I have nothing more to lose - my hair is already on its journey - I'm just a passenger.

Love and light to you all; I hope you are strong and keep to this programme - have no photos at the moment but will upload later. Too sad to do so now.

Hello Mackenzie,

I can certainly help you. Have you been cleared of any and all illnesses that could cause this type of hair loss? If so, you are an excellent candidate for this diet.

You Can Regrow Your Hair/Hairline
by: Sheree

Hello Sethukani,

African hair is extremely fragile and has to be treated with utmost care. Weaving, perming, excessive coloring and relaxing can wear down the hair and cause it to fall out.

Weaving, pulling, and tugging from braiding may cause scarring that causes hair loss.

African hair is extremely curly, and combing is not recommended often because it can snap or break the hair. Use your hands and fingers for detangling as often as you can.

Protective hair styling has it place, and I believe in it. But I've seen African and African-American women who've accomplished astonishing lengths without protective styling. So I think it just depends.

You're on the right track as far as going natural. Natural hair care is of paramount importance when your goal is to achieve length.

I've seen many women reverse hair loss from weaving and pulling. If you go on YouTube, there are hundreds of videos that describe how to regrow the hair line back after extensive damage. So it can be reversed.

And just to cover all of your bases, go on the hair loss diet permanently. With these tips, your can achieve your goal.

Hair Loss Diet is Not Working for Me: Please Help and Advice !!!

by Shanshimbo

I am also fasting 1 day a week. on that day i will eat sweet potato with some nuts and some dates.

After being on this diet, I have not seen much improvement in my hair regrowth. I really need your help. Can you please provide some help with my diet? See if I am missing anything.

Thanks a lot.

What's Stalling Hair Growth?
by: Sheree

Hello Shanshimbo,

I understand that you've been on the hair loss diet for seven months, and you've seen very little results.

Seven months is quite a bit longer than normal to see results; however, the longest amount of time I've seen it take for the diet to work is one year.

Vegetarians tend to have a little bit more of a challenge; however, I've worked with many vegetarians who've been extremely successful.

Your diet looks excellent. The only thing I would change is the quinoa. You have to be very careful not to overeat quinoa. And when you eat it, make sure you soak it first. I would eat quinoa only once or twice per month, just to be on the safe side.

It's quite rare, but there are other things that cause hair loss. Just to be on the safe side, get screened by a naturopath. They can check for thyroid, gut disorders or other systemic issues that can affect your hair.

For a full and thorough evaluation, I need to see every single piece of food you're eating for seven days, and in what combinations. This is a very detailed process that takes several hours.

If you would like a full professional evaluation, please use the contact form, and I can send you an invoice with instructions.

In the meantime, hang in there.

Hi sheree,

Thanks a lot for your response. i really appreciate your help.

I am somewhat confused about your comments about quinoa. If i can eat brown rice everyday then why i cannot eat quinoa everyday.

I have reserached quinoa somewhat and i find quinoa to have better nutritional value than brown rice and glycemic index is about the same for both.

Also on your page, You have listed quinoa a few times a week as part of a meal.

Could you please provide some explanation as to why i can eat more brown rice everyday but not quinoa? Also what does soaking quinoa do ?

Thanks again.

Hi Shanshimbo,

You are correct. I have quinoa listed on our 7-day planner. I'm going to add some modifications to that page, because we've made a lot of changes in the last four years since that page was written.

Another visitor asked a question about quinoa several weeks ago, and I have a detailed explanation on this page here.
