Food choices / diet has little to do with most health issues despite all the huckstering. Good luck on managing this. ...Read more

Hello i am a 22 year old female with hair loss problems due to nerves and i wanted to know what can i put on my hair or take to help it fill in?

Best to treat cause: First off, at least 2 of my siblings have suffered stress induced alopecia so I know how it can be related to nerves. However, not knowing you I am compelled to ask whether you've done a complete workup to discover if in fact, nothing else could be responsible such as hormones and such. If it is truly stress induced then, you MUST address that problem to definitively treat your issue. All the best ...Read more
