I was JUST thinking of this thread and hoping for an update on KratomMom (and Cori177).

Thanks for bringing the thread back up to the top!
Maybe the girls will see it.

Do you have any suggestions for combatting this issue?

I’m certainly hoping they got lab work done and perhaps a deficiency corrected?!

Thanks for posting.


Well, the one thing that seems to be working for me, I cannot divulge publicly since it is a controversial healing modality. It more controversial than anything you may have ever heard. So, all I can say is that do what works for you to heal from everyday radiation since we are always exposed to it i.e. cell phone, wifi, microwaves. Check youtube and google... eventually someone will come up with something that will make you very surprised at best lol.

Hi Laurie and all!

Aw Laurie thanks I was wondering how you were, I haven’t visited this site in so long. Yes my hair is back and thick and fine. Mine was caused by
Telogen
Effluvium, from a major shock to my body systems (liver, others). But it’s been like 9 months and all is well.
I hope everyone here on this site having hair issues is finding the help the need.

Get some other things checked out first. My hair is exactly as you described, and it’s because I’m always anemic, only varied by degrees of worse and even worse. If you’re anemic, half the time you won’t even know it. Some physicians see low hemoglobin and iron as something that is normal for women, don’t tell you that you have anemia at all. For years this was the case, but then I had a dr take it seriously and he tested my ferritin. I had little to no iron stores in my body, and that was the worst anemia I’ve ever had, needed intravenous iron. A few years later and back to where I started, hair in the bottom of the drain in my shower, brushing or detangling my hair resulting in a handful of hair. I asked for copies of my recent blood work and sure enough, anemic again. Dr. didn’t bring it up; felt it wasn’t THAT important. I obtained all my blood work for the past year and the anemia was a slow but certain avalanche. I take biotin, an iron supplement with orange juice, any supplement that reads ‘hair, skin, and nails,’ Bio-Sil, vitamin D, etc. Apple Cider Vinegar helps with hair loss when used topically, but it smells. I prefer Cedarwood Essential Oil because it helps preserve hair and assists with regrowth. Oddly enough, so does Tagamet. Sidenote: Birth control can make you lose hair, and any prescription might have this as a side effect/culprit. There’s is a product line called Phyto Botanical Power that they used to sell only at Sephora but it is on Amazon. IT WORKS. Look up Phyto; there is a range of different products that will address your hair thinning concerns. Just adding my two cents here, I don’t think Kratom could cause hair loss unless the vendor was seriously sketchy. Things like prescription meds, thyroid, hormone imbalances, vitamin D levels, and anemia are silent culprits that can, and will clog your hair drain if you let it. Keep fighting the good fight!

Another chronic anemic here. I take Vitron - C as my dr takes it very seriously and had me see a hematologist. I have the order for my next test on the calendar.
I recommend the Vitron - C. I get it at Rite Aid, recommended by my hematologist. She said I’m still low, but not as drastically low. We check again in 6 months.

You’re so right about the other possibilities for hair loss. Pinpointing the cause is flying blind. Hopefully you discontinue the cause, knowingly or not.
