Case: Hair Loss. 36yo
I was surprised when I saw Kai Jin.
She looked so much younger with a slimmer face and more hair. The last I saw her was 4 months ago.
Kai Jin, "Yes, my friends said I look younger. And you know... my hair grew back!"
Oooo! That was very good news! She also continues to shed her body fat and lose weight throughout the 4 months. A dragon boat enthusiast, she started losing hair since 16yr old. She had gone for all kinds of treatments but in vain. Skin specialist claimed that her hair follicles are still healthy. But TCM, acupuncture and hair specialists treatments didn't help grow more hair in each follicle. Her blood test results were all normal. Kai Jin remained puzzled and troubled throughout the past 20 years.
Kai Jin had very serious bloating. Meat can cause extremely painful stomachache. Salads weakened her legs (脚软). Her legs also experienced numbness and tingling sensation. Constipated, she could go toilet only twice a wk.
Dragonfruits helped ease constipation, but cutting carbs worked better.
I explained that her diet is highly deprived of proper nutrients such as fibre, minerals, vitamins, protein, carbohydrates and fats. Carb is not the problem. Problem was the refined carbs like chee cheong fan, fried vegetable bee-hoon which are not proper unrefined complex carbs.
She had been taking multivitamins. She asked why no hair growth?
Well, tablet vitamins can never replace real foods.
One must eat real food and supplements only act as supplementation on top of real food. By filling her stomach w much of wrong refined carbs, the stomach is already so full. There is no space for healthy carbs like rice, veg, fruits. "But I cannot digest meat and veg, I have no choice," she said.
She went on our detox and nutrition program. Her digestive system improved and she could eat rice, meat and veg again. During the entire program, she had zero episode of bloating and constipation. In 2 weeks, she lost 2kg, dropped one level of visceral fat and 2% body fat. After 4 months of nourishment, her hair started to grow back. Great!
