View Full Version : Raw food and Alopecia
10-20-2009, 03:40 PM
I have recently been diagnosed with Alopecia areata. Its a condition where you lose hair in certain spots of your scalp. Its not just thinning or balding all over. Just in a centralized area. There isn't a cure for it. I can have blood work done to see if something is off in my body but the blood work doesn't always show that something is wrong. Just wondering if anyone else has this and if raw food helped them. I am currently not raw. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!

I am a 46 ys old female and I suffer from alopecia androgenetica since my twenties. This is a different kind of affair and not any better than the areata - but that's only to say that I've got somehow acquainted with everything alopecia...
Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease and is highly related to emotional stress, may you be aware of it or not. Bald spots will regrow over time but may be replaced by other ones, it is usually something you will have to deal with in the long-run. A lady at my hair salon has it. I learned recently she lost a new-born many years ago. While she got along with her life and had two healthy sons afterwards, the trauma has expressed itself on her scalp.
I think the better advise is to take good care of your emotional health, and I believe everyone here will agree that raw food will help in that department.
I've been myself dealing with chronic depression since eons and only 6 weeks high raw already make a noticeable difference. Food itself won't cure the hair condition (no deficiency involved), but the well-being will do.
Take good care

I was diagnosed with Scarring Alopecia caused by Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE) a couple months ago. This is the skin version of lupus. I had A LOT of hair loss on the top of my scalp. Though still had hair on the sides of my head, the back of my head, and a thin line along the front. I think this was all brought on by a wheat allergy (blood test positive to wheat). After I got off the wheat the overt symptoms in my scalp (redness, flaking) subsided. BTW, I have NO other symptoms of DLE except for the skin problem that went away when I stopped taking wheat. Followed up with my dermatologist. She said my hair would not grow back, because I had Scarring Alopecia......
