A miracle has happened to me, since starting this diet about a month ago. For about 20 years I have suffered a little known "compulsion" called trichotillomania, which gives one the uncontrollable urge to pull out hair (brows, lashes, scalp, etc.). I'm sure you can imagine the social and emotional consequences of such. But I am certain on this day, that for whatever reason, this diet has made that impulse vanish! I can't even explain it, but for the first time in several years I have lashes growing, and the most recent bald spot on my head is filling in, but the urge to yank is just gone. Additionally, chronic and severe excema on my hands is completely gone, leaving slightly wintery dry, but not active itchy bumps anymore. Not to mention the numerous other benefits, that have left me feeling more confident and pretty than in a long time. Many blessings to Alicia for her wonderful & convincing book that helped me take more than one step in the right direction.
Rekabeka, "skin picking" is often featured as similar disorder to trichotillomania. Lots of websites refer to both. I had chronic excema on my hands and was constantly picking & chewing on mine, too. NO MORE!!! Now I'm going around to different trich sites and groups and telling about the success I'm having with this diet, but I think people just think I'm a vegan wacko. A "vegan missionary" hahaha.
