    I think the reason for me is vitamin D deficiency, I really don't get enough sunlight and I've taken all the right supplements and use all the oils

    My shedding has decreased greatly!!! I have been eating soooo much more greens and stopped taking the calcium. I have also stopped taking my prescribed iron medication. I sometimes take an iron supplement that I purchased at a natural market. I take two pills around my menstrual.

    I am getting blood work done in Jan; so hopefully it will show good results. Even though my hair seems to be improving (however, I still have the thinness around my hairline), physically something feels off. I haven't been sleeping well and I've been getting night sweats. I am also sporadically getting heat palpitations and arm muscle soreness. I'm gonna def bring this up to my doctor. I've been thinking about going back to see my endocrinologist specialist; instead of just seeing my primary for everything.

    Hello ladies,

    I have stopped getting the cortisone shots as they weren't really helping and were a bit painful. I have contacted the natural hair transplant, hair restoration clinic out of ft lauderdale. I have a consultation via FaceTime scheduled for Monday. Hopefully all goes well and I'll be getting my hair transplant soon.

    Had my consultation today and will be scheduling my surgery for sometime in March. Im so excited!! I spoke with the head surgeon he was really nice and assured me all would go well. Now I just have to decide on which of the surgeons I want to perform my surgery and location. I was quoted $5k, $6k or $ 8k based on the doctor. The price includes a $1k travel discount. Decisions, decisions......
