Here are the five questions that were addressed during this episode:

Question #1 (0:59): I have Hashimoto’s. Suffered hair loss for 3 1/2 years which began six months before I was diagnosed. I finally found out that I’ve been estrogen dominant and since taking DIM and calcium D glucarate supplements, my hair loss has rapidly stopped and my hair is growing back. My questions are as follows.

How common is estrogen dominance hair loss?

I’m planning to take these supplements for at least three months. But I am unsure what to do after that. Do you think a gut cleanse would help rectify the problem of estrogen dominance so that I could hopefully stop needing the supplements?

Question #2 (4:22): I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and I was wondering how long does it take for hair loss to stop and grow back? I know everyone is different but I’m hoping you can give me an average length of time.

Question #3 (6:11): As a Hashimoto’s patient, my hormones have been messed up for decades. I started losing a lot of hair when my mom lost her control. The emotional attack continued well into my adulthood, until we spend a few solid years to reconcile and heal. So for someone who has been shedding tons of hair for many years, is it possible to stop that process?

Question #4 (9:06): I have a question about hair loss. I read that Evening Primrose oil is good for hair loss with hyperthyroidism and I take 1300mg 2x per day. It does help with shedding, but it doesn’t seem to regrow the hair. What can I do for more regrowth?

Question #5 from Brenda (9:51): How do you know if your hair loss is related to hormones or something else?
