I bought it, put globs of it in my hair and combed it through and left it there overnight. The next morning my hair looked so much better. I didn't even have to wash it! It was shiny and healthy looking. The next night I put more in and washed it out the next morning and it made a huge difference. I put more in it after I styled it and it's amazing.
My female cat has started licking off her hair on her paws and legs and possibly is starting on her belly - they are long hair and it's kinda hard to tell until a definite bald patch appears. This has been happening since before Christmas. At first I thought it was due to the loss of her beloved "Cat tree" but I got her a replacement - although I'm not sure she likes it near as much.
I'm thinking about adding it every other day. I also take 2000 IU vitamin D, Omega 3 and a probiotic, plus a digestive enzyme, because I don't absorb nutrients adequately... I'm also on weekly vitamin B-12 shots because I have Pernicious Anemia, and I take calcium to help build bone, selenium 200 mcg and magnesium 200 mg/day. You might want to ask your NP about selenium... Studies show that selenium is instrumental in the conversion of FT4 to FT3.

My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
I have had bad anxiety for the past 3 months that started with my job and has moved to my health as every little thing seems to make me think I am dying. I do ask that you all try this as I noticed it a week ago and have been keeping a close eye on it ever since. Pay close attention when you are doing something you love, such as eat ice cream, play video games, read etc... do you notice that it goes away until you start thinking about it more?
Regarding the hair loss, when I started going through menopause at age 47 I would find a hair ball in the shower. Lasted for a while and then stopped. I've read that hair loss can be attributed to a lack of estrogen. So not sure if you're at that age or not. Hair loss is also a symptom that some people with lupus deal with. I've had some estrogen issues just recently and have noticed my skin is a lot drier than usual, probably a result of the lowering estrogen.
he prescribed a muscle relaxant tablet (baclofen) and i took 3 per day for 2 weeks it eased off and did the trick. still have problem and have to watch how i lie down etc but when it starts i take the relaxants again for a couple of days.it seems i have a very clever dr who knows his stuff.
Abbey is long hair gray and white, and Lucie is a main coon with a fluffy coat. I usually buy the hair ball formula food but sometimes forget. They say if they are indoor cats to grow some grass for them to aid in their digestion The gals are into brushing and when I say brush they both come running. It took abbey a long time before she would allow brushing. Finally now she does. I guess its because her coat is always snarled and it pulls. She is a real hard one to keep looking good.

Increase your intake of Omega 3 rich foods and supplements. Some people find limiting nightshade vegetables help but I have avoided that. Reduce the chemicals you use or are near. Stay out of the sun and away from fluorescent lights. Invest in a good heating pad. Learn to say no. Good luck with everything.
Magnesium glycinate or taurinate can help the muscle twitching and anxiety and migraines. (Google for magnesium and either migraine or anxiety for articles.) Omega-3's can help stabilize the mental health aspect...google for fish oil and anxiety. (Google for fish oil, anxiety.
THREE WEEKS PLUS. Sunday 16/03/08. Well 3 weeks and 3 days have passed, I have since returned to work. I find keeping occupied is the best thing, but the fatigue and the pain in arms and legs are real bad some days. WARNING. I had read that symtoms can return at anytime, well that seems to be the case, I ache all over today, ( same yesterday ) and my skin feels as if I have rolled in some stinging nettles, arms and legs in particular.
What I found extremely helpful and got me to STOP this insanity once and for all is to take Omega-3 fish oil AND Magnesium and Calcium and Vitamin C (Ester-C) everyday. Also, I lowered my consumption of sugar since I found aggravates the problem. I also started working out and doing yoga to help my stress and this I found theraputic. So to everyone suffering from this, don't feel guilty about this problem!
Reduced swelling reduces pain, allowing dogs to stay more active and use muscles, which helps prevent loss of muscle mass. I would go for Omega 3 supplements, plus Glucosamine and Chondroitin (I have forgotten the exact dose of Glucosamine/Chondroitin per pound of the dog's weight, but I give my 28lb dog the max. dose for her weight which is 500mg Glucosamine, and 200mg Chondroitin, so maybe you can calculate from that....

200 DHA) daily, haven't had a 'bump' since I started these vitamins.
I too had this problem. What is really needed when there are skin irritations is Omega 3, 6, and 9. You can get the pills at the health food store. Try to get one that is not made with fish oil. You can also find them here: www.********.com. I also purchased a skin brush from vitacost. I brush my legs and entire body before going to bed. This has worked wonders. Hope this helps.
A few days ago I was in a wedding and for the rehersal I wore a thong (I was wearing white pants). Well the thong was too small, and I wore it throughout the next morning while getting my hair done and everything as well... I changed into a different thong for the actual wedding, one that fit and by the end of the night when I went home and got back into regular panties, it hurt.
Now I am going to loss my home because I can't afford to stay here! I'm not using menpause as an excuse to be lazy and not exercise I was in meno for 3 years before this hit - I have been to dozens of doctors will little to no help from them. I'm not a stupid of lazy person so please don't treat me as if I am. Again thanks for your thoughts - to bad they have to cut people to the bone!
I do have mildly high blood pressure so I do watch my diet and exercise. Recently I broke my wrist snowboarding and about 3 days later I started noticing the palpitations again, more often and stronger...often when I sit or cross my legs at my desk. I have not noticed it when I lay down. I am not taking any meds and was really getting concerned until I found these threads. I'm wondering if I should just bite the bullet and get on BP medication... Here is the other thread: http://www.
Finally I guessed B6, he said maybe, I stopped it completely (that was a rough road), and major changes started to happen in 8 days. It took about 3 years, I'd say, to get to the point where I didn't notice any remaining effect. But I'm still very sensitive to it. I can't yet take a whole Centrum each day (that's all of 2mg) without feeling a little wierd on my fingertips and toes after a week or two. Anyway, it's a long story. Let me know if you want to know more.
This time for 2 years she had a relapse 3 times a year-- when she was stressed and developed high fevers. She had all kinds of diagnostic tests--tested negative for everything--except that her IgA for autoimmune disease was high. When she is stressed and near her period she gets canker sores in her mouth (we thought it might be bechets), followed by a high fever due to some respiratory illness.
We decided not to have the PDT surgery and have continued with a course of Cyclosporine 2% 3 times a day, Tacrolimus 3 times a day, and Equate Artificial tears and Clear Eyes severe dry eye ointment from Wal-Mart.I wish I could offer something new but that seems to be all we can do at this time. Have you seen anyt improvement in Blu's eyes as a result of the new diet? I have given the Boys omega 3 fish oil 1000mg twice a day but have not yet altered their diet from that of Purina Benefil.
I have tried that threelac drug some 3 years ago and that I felt better that time and the symptoms drastically reduced. At one point of time, I felt like I am totally free of that symptoms but not sure because of that drug. But it reocurred again and not sure why it happens. It's sort of come and go. This monday to Wednesday, I felt better. But yesterday the symptoms reappeared and am not sure why?! :( I am trying to figure what went wrong & why.
I know when it's going to happen - can feel pressure, then it pops and you see blood under the skin and then it itches like crazy. Sometimes it's a hard blue marble under the skin. I have 3 that are permanently there (two in the same finger). It's almost never caused by anything - just happens. Occasionally it's when I grip something.
scotoma changed to 3 spots, one larger than the others, they do not shine now and I see them more on smooth surfaces (mostly white or gray) and I see it very much when I blink, and when I see stripes too because those scotomas modify the colors, yes, I think they are transparent, or I think they are because those spot are located slightly to the left, not in the center.
I started a really stressful job about 3 months ago and have developed this and a strange lower-eyelid twitch in my left eye, so I assume they're both stress related. I'm gonna drink a beer and calm down.
