I was formally diagnosed a couple years ago and it never occurred to me that it could be the cause to my hair loss. My hair's been falling out A LOT over the past year and I couldn't figure out why. I haven't been treated for it yet, but was wondering if there were any dietary changes I could make for the time being to help my hair grow.

1. herbal tinctures of chaste tre, dandelion root, false unicorn, golden seal, licorice, white peonie, nettle and red clover
2. 1 tab of d-chiro inositol twice daily
3. tribulus on days 5-14 of my period. one tab during those times.

I'm also taking iodine to help with my ovarian cysts and my hypothyroidism.

As for diet, I'm trying to avoid caffeine (that contributes to cysts). I was already vegan before I was diagnosed so I'm sticking with that diet, except limiting soy. I tend not to eat packaged foods or fast food. I may add in organic eggs every now and then. We will see. Hope this helps.
