View Full Version : Losing my hair
09-10-2006, 09:14 PM
I've been raw for about 9 months, and I've noticed a greater-than-usual amount of hair coming out of my head over the past 2 months (I'm a female). What's going on?

I just did a banana search on this and found lots of discussion. Lots of people said it's a detox symptom, which I'm inclined to think, too (or a product of my hormones rebalancing themselves . . . I know I still have some repair work to do in that department).
I would really love to hear from people who lost some hair but have now regrown it. It's easy to chock everything up to detox, but it'd be great to hear some actual testimonials :)

I have been experiencing this too. I asked a raw expert about it, and he told me to contact a raw MD because hair loss can be serious... I haven't done it, but I might. I will see how it continues. From what I have read, it can be a sign of many things. I have never read a health professional say it had anything to do with detox. Greens, hormones, B-12, and ZINC are all possible factors. Stress too. I have read a lot of testimonials from people following very high fruit diets losing their hair, and that it stopped after getting more of the essential fats and proteins.
