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 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 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[...]
