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[...]

My goal is to get more insights on areas that I discuss about on this blog, and to reach more people with helpful info, inspo and lessons learned. So[...]

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[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 6

June 1, 2018 Welcome to Day 6 of our gluten-free quest to end alopecia! It's the first day of June and summer is so close we can feel it. I'm excited for all the sun we're going to get as vitamin D will definitely be helpful for combating alopecia! Food wise, there isn't much to update today as we pretty have the same thing as[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 5 + Pancakes Recipe

May 31, 2018 So far so good with going gluten-free, and just when I thought our daily breakfast menu is starting to get boring, Little Claire stepped up the game this morning by asking for... pancakes! We usually start the day by asking what she wants for breakfast, and she'll usually pick one of our usual: cereal, oats, or bread. And once in a while[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 3

May 29, 2018 Day 3 and we are more prepared and stocked up than ever! Starting the day off right as we have all the usual affair for Little Claire's breakfast ready to go (except for bread, but we live next door to IGA supermarket!). Meal #1: Breakfast She wanted cereal for breakfast, so here's the usual deal: 2 teaspoons of Nature's Path Whole O's 1/3[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 2

May 28, 2018 We're on Day 2 and although 2 out of 3 meals yesterday were seemingly gluten-free. I say seemingly because we're totally new at this GF business and the meals may or may not have been completely gluten-free in terms of cross contamination, but we decided we're trying to cut way down and should see an indication of response if there is any[...]

Project END ALOPECIA: Day 1

May 27, 2018 It was late on Saturday night when we decided to give gluten-free or gluten-low diet a try in an attempt to figure out if gluten has anything to do with Little Claire's alopecia all this while. That means on Sunday morning we were not quite prepared for a gluten-free breakfast just yet. Here's how the day went. Meal #1: Breakfast Cereal consisting[...]

Does gluten cause alopecia? [Project END ALOPECIA]

We're learning more and more about food, nutrition and treatment that seem to be shining light on the fight against alopecia by way of slowing down hair loss and stimulating hair growth. We're seeing encouraging signs of hair regrowth as a result of incorporating these tactical changes to our daily diet and treatment routine. However, one thing became clearer and clearer to me. No one[...]
