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.
Wow, this is a huge problem for me... Dont even know where to start. Does anybody know?
I'm recovering now. the hair on my eyebrows has grown back almost fully and I barely have to use any product. It's been a good month since I pulled my eyebrow hair. I think what motivated me to stop was that I just looked in the mirror one day and did not like what this disorder was doing to me and I did not want to have to live the rest of my life by covering up bald spots. I know this seems so...
