If your hair is getting noticeably thinner…

… or falling out in clumps…

… scalp starting to show through…

… then lean in because I’m going to share with you how I started to grow thick hair again without supplements or the typical recommendations like “take some biotin, iron, selenium”, etc…

Tried those… didn’t work…

First thing I’m going to point out is that this may be a blessing in disguise…

… because before my hair started falling off, I felt like something else was wrong with my body…

I felt so tired…

I had a hard time falling and staying asleep…

I kept gaining weight no matter what…

Felt like an 84 year old in a 28 year old body…

All I wanted was my old self back…

When my hair started to fall off, that’s when I started to take my health more serious…

… before my hair started falling off, I thought I was just aging… but then I decided to look into why my hair was falling off…

Everything was pointing to my thyroid… and started to wonder…

“… will my hair grow back?”

I’m happy to say that YES!!

Your hair can grow back regardless of your thyroid…

Here’s the story…

It all started in late 2012 when my hair was falling out in large amounts… more than usual… had a rubber band, stretchy like consistency…

One day, I was lathering my hair in the shower and felt this texture on my hands… I opened my eyes and saw hair everywhere…

It was on my hands…

The shower curtain…

The wall…

The drain was going to be clogged for sure after all that hair…

I rushed out of the shower, wiped off the foggy mirror and there it was…

#1 My eyebrows were thinning at the edges…

#2 My hair was noticeably thinner…

#3 My hair was falling out at the temples and forehead…

#4 Scalp was starting to show through…

Not really wanting a wig in my future, I set out to figure out how to make my hair appear fuller, and grow thick hair again…

I spent years researching thyroid hair loss success stories trying to figure out what other people were doing about it…

It seemed that no one had figured it out…

Lots of products that promise your hair will grow thick, but none seemed to work…

Then I had my biggest epiphany that I want to share with you… because if you understand the root cause, you too will be able to take the steps necessary to grow hair again…

This may surprise you, so brace yourself and stick with me until the end so that you can see how to grow your hair regardless of your thyroid levels being normal or not…

So here’s the first question I have for you…

Have you ever considered that your hair falling off is not a thyroid problem?

Think about this for a second…

What does your hair need to grow?

Nutrients, right?

That’s why they tell you that you may be deficient in iron, selenium, biotin, etc.

… but how do those nutrients get into your body so hair can grow?

It all happens in your gut…

If the leaves of a tree start to wilt, turn brown, get holes or fall off, the problem isn’t at the leaf, it’s at the root…

Similarly, if your hair is thinning or falling off, the problem is not at the hair, it’s at the root… the gut…

If you have poor gut health, then no matter how many supplements you throw at your body, it won’t absorb nutrients…

Hair loss is just a symptom of a bigger problem…

If you can’t get nutrients, then your body will have no way to produce energy…

… which is why I felt tired all the time…

If your hair is thinning or falling off, chances are that you feel tired all the time as well…

You know your gut health isn’t good if you have gas, bloating or constipation… or all three…

That’s why this was an epiphany for me, because for the first time I took my focus off my thyroid and directed that focus to my gut health…

… because if you can’t digest food, you can’t get nutrients…

Take protein for example… your gut needs to break protein down into amino acids which are the raw material the body needs to grow hair… and make hormones!

Without amino acids like tyrosine, tryptophan and others, your body can’t convert the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into the active form T3…

Which is why every success story you will read about in this blog doesn’t happen by improving thyroid function… it happens by improving gut health…

Hormones are produced and regulated in your gut… that’s why if you have gas, bloating, or constipation… meaning you’re not digesting food properly, it’s likely that you are not producing other hormones like melatonin… the sleeping hormone…

Or GABA… which also affects sleep, but also regulates fear and anxiety…

Or dopamine & serotonin… the feel good, happy hormones…

This is how it all started to make sense…

Why I would wake up with horrible brain fog… depression and anxiety…

Some days were worse than others…

That’s how I realized that taking thyroid hormone or getting thyroid levels to be normal were not the answer to growing hair…

The answer was to improve gut health…

Not just for hair loss, but that’s how I got my energy back…

… and even started to lose weight…

I’m now leaner than I’ve ever been… I’m leaner in my late 30’s than I was in my 20’s…

It was amazing!!

When you improve your gut health you get more energy, better sleep and losing weight becomes almost inevitable…

That was another big one…

I used to think I could not lose weight no matter what…

Then I found that all of the gas, bloating, and constipation came from either a lack of probiotics in the gut…

… or bad bacteria, yeast overgrowth, mold, parasites, etc., which make your gut toxic… and that toxic waste is what makes your body produce body fat…

It was crazy because somedays I felt better if I didn’t eat much, yet I would gain weight…

… but as soon as I started to clean my gut not only did the weight start coming off, but my hair stopped falling off…

Ever since I found how important gut health was for my hair to grow thicker I started to find ways to improve my gut health…

It boils down to 3 simple steps which I cover in my Energy & Fat Loss blueprint…

When I started sharing this blueprint with others, they too started to notice a difference in weight…

People started sharing success stories about getting their energy back, producing hormones and getting better sleep…

The steps are simple…

Just by cleaning your gut you can start to see a lot of improvement…

… and nourishing your body doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds on supplements your body can’t absorb anyway…

In fact, if you are like I was… spending $200-$300 a month on supplements and not noticing a difference in energy and hair growth, then go through our Energy & Fat Loss blueprint which shows you simple ways to nourish your body… and when I say simple, I mean something as simple as water & minerals…

If you want to learn more about our Energy & Fat Loss blueprint, we put together a video series where we go over the 3 steps we’ve used to improve gut health to grow hair, get more energy, sleep better and lose weight…

      I’ve been diagnosed “Hypothyroidism “, for the over 10 years and I’ve been on Levothyroxine ranging from 88mcg. which seemed too high and had a reaction. Now I’m on 25mcg. and I’m still losing hair.
      I’m totally frustrated! I’ve changed my diet and have been on nutrients and supplements and am still having hair loss(a lot) and all the symptoms.
