Re probiotics and trichotillomania
I read a post from a former member on this forum who said he cured his trich with probiotics. I emailed him about a year ago, and he told me the kind he used but I can not recall the name of them. There are so many kinds of probiotics and at different strenghts. I need to go back and hopefully find his email. I bought some probiotics after I emailed the fellow who cured his trich with probiotics, but only took them a few times. But I am going to give probiotics a serious try this time around, as I need to stop pulling forever. I was at the health food store one day recently, and there was a sign that said "helps with anxiety" next to a bottle of probiotics. My father and I both have anxiety and I am sure it contributes to hair pulling for me. My dad happened to start on probiotics recently, due to having taken antibiotics, and what do you know, his anxiety which was extreme, has disappeared ! I found the article at the link above re probiotics and trich. I hope it is going to work for me, and for you too if you want to try it.

She pulls the cat hair that is "the wrong color" and does much damage to our poor cats' faces! Her therapist almost reported her for animal abuse. Therapy didn't seem to...
Hi thereSome of you knew me as trickster2011, now known as trickster2016. Just came back from 11 nights of camping and happy to say that I pulled a lot less with some pull free nights while away. Can see the new hair growth. I am wearing a wig right now because the pulling got so bad. Will be a while till my hair grows back but I am hopeful and believe it will happen. Have a new expensive wig,...
Hi, My name is Sam and I'm new to this group. I am 23 and have had trich since I was 12. Over the years I have tried many times to stop, however it's only this past year that I have started to research ways of stopping, and have been really determined to do it. I plan on doing so with a combination of understanding, will-power, exercise, trying the John Kender diet, and seeing a therapist. I love...
