Hair Loss After Miscarriage

Posted by A (Anonymous) on 05/30/2012

Hi Ted, I am 28 and have been losing my hair in excessive amounts for the past 3 years - ever since I had a miscarriage. It's only improved twice throughout the years - both times for only 1 month. Not sure what I did differently at all - I have a slightly underactive thyroid too, and have been on and off various thyroid remedies. The hairs that fall out predominantly have white tips and/or split ends on the bottom tips. I'm not sure what remedy is best for such hormonal-related condition - ACV, blackstrap molasses, borax, tea tree/lavender oil, etc? And in what proportions? Any suggestions would be fabulous. Thank you!

The cause of hair loss in a majority of women that do have it is thyroid insufficiency from lack of tyrosine, and things that prevent proper thyroid functions from iodine deficiency and foods such as wheat, flour, sugar, the lettuce family, cassava, for example. What I do in this case is give Superoxide dismutase and manganese sulfate topically to help hair loss, and sodium thiosulfate, that helped one case here. To help hair growth and hair loss, B3 niacinamide, helped, both topically 1/4 teaspoon with 1 tablespoon of water overnight and take 500 mg a night. Hair loss may be due to not getting enough sleep such as a B3 deficiency, or iodine deficiency, or even a biotin deficiency from not eating egg yolk and eating egg whites. You have to do the exact opposite, Long time ago I helped one case of hair loss with humic acid. The case also presented some multi-mineral deficiencies, for which I gave 1/16 teaspoon a day which is barely the tip of the knife of humic acid over a month. Vitamin C can also help, especially if low in iron or anemia, 1000 mg x 3 for over a month.
