Project END ALOPECIA: Day 89

August 25, 2018 In my last post, I mentioned that we were off our gluten-free diet plan due to summer distractions. We got back on to gluten-free diet for Little Claire on around August 13, 2018.

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 56

July 23, 2018 Day 56 of our journey, and we have been slightly off the gluten-free diet plan track. Because... summer happened! Little Claire's grandparents (my parents) visited from halfway around the world on July 4th. So naturally we had a ton of fam time, fam outings, and some getaways. Even with the best intention to stay on our gluten-free track, I realised we had[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 34

June 30, 2018 I can't believe we made it to 34 days. Wow! We are one week into the summer break. No school and a weirdly rainy and gloomy summer in Vancouver so far means we are lazing around indoors more than we'd like. Little Claire's appetite hasn't been the best because we haven't been keeping up with physical activities and the much anticipated time[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 22

June 18, 2018 Everything is heading in the right direction in terms of hair regrowth. Even though we had a few occasions when we deviated from the gluten-free diet plan. Can't help it with the end of school year, summer festive and celebratory mood. The deviation was very minimal though, and didn't last more than one meal at a time. Our occasional deviation from gluten-free[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 19

June 14, 2018 I'm writing this post so late because life has taken over at our fam-ville, between upcoming audit for our business, end of school year and all the good stuff that comes with starting the summer break. But in keeping with the original intention of starting this journal update, I still think better late than never. Our gluten-free diet update We're still going[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 16

June 11, 2018 I haven't been updating this journal on a daily basis. There hasn't been much difference in what we're doing in terms of nutrition and gluten-free diet every day. We're also still diligent with topical ginger juice and essential oils treatment, however we are spacing it out some days, giving the scalp a little break on some days when Little Claire would resist[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 13

June 8, 2018 We woke up to a misty, cloudy and gloomy Vancouver. It is PD day Friday, so we have no school today but will be headed for Parent-Teacher Conference mid morning. I suggested a family donut outing in the morning. It would be good to get us out of the house together on a more relaxed rhythm, different from the usual hustle and[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 10

June 5, 2018 So I've been MIA for Day 8 and Day 9 blog entries, because life in our fam-ville got a little busy the last few days. But we're still here, still going strong with the gluten-free + topical ginger and essential oils treatment regimen. And I can't believe it's already Day 10 of our journey. Meals & snacks Food wise there hasn't been[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 7

June 2, 2018 Can't believe it's been a week! Going gluten-free has gotten its handle on us, and as we learn more and more each day, it seems to be more doable and somewhat easier. Especially with all the awesome gluten-free recipes on Pinterest these days, restrictive diet probably has never been easier. There is at least a handful of gluten-free version of any food[...]
