Hi, I have been losing my hair for some years, luckily I started out with masses of it so it's still manageable, but distressing, the thing is my roots hurt! Ladies, you know when you put your hair up and when you let it down the roots hurt?? So I'm not sure what that's about.
However, I had acid reflux for about 3 years, ppi's make it very much worse. I became gluten free and dairy free, I had increased in weight, it really helped all the stomach symptoms but I still had "acid" and eventually I healed my tummy with bone broth and I am now free! Wonderful.
I am still gluten and dairy free, I eat a plant based diet, however, my cholesterol levels are still very high, they have been for about 20 years.
My question is, if I cannot reduce my cholesterol through diet, If I cannot lose any weight (should do, no starch, no grains, no sweet things for at least 6 months), might that have anything to do with my thyroid? And, if so, what do I do? Sorry to have rambled on but you all seem so helpful and friendly.............................
