Hair Loss Questions
I have had Telogen effluvium (hair shedding) through out my life except for the duration of my pregnancy and it suddenly reduced after taking the suppliment called N-Acetyl Cysteine. At the moment I take 600mg 2 times a day and this suppliment... (more)
Hi all, I'm not 100 percent paleo probably not close but I try. I'm currently 7 months postpartum and breastfeeding. I started doing "no poo" around May? And than I had about 2-3 weeks where I went back to an organic non-toxic shampoo/conditioner.... (more)
Ever since going Paleo I have been suffering from unexplained hair loss. It started after three months into the diet (as well as yeast growing all over me). I had a 3 and a 2 month break since late 2012, where my hair regrew fast, but otherwise... (more)

Hello all, Some time before Christmas I discovered fasting, and got into it. My appetite started steadily decreasing; I used to have 3 meals a day, and even some snacks; it moved to 2 meals a day and a snack, and then to just two meals with... (more)
