As much as we all wish there was a magic pill that helped everyone re-grow their brows & lashes, there's not.
Hair, Skin, & Nail supplements and topical serums can be helpful in an instance you have simply overplucked or the area needs a circulation boost. But, if you are one of the hundreds of thousands of women across the world experiencing true hairloss of your brows, lash, and even head hair, there are action oriented solutions that go beyond what science and research currently understands.
The information provided here comes from my hours upon hours of researching information shared by Anthony William, a gifted medical intuitive, who I normally would be skeptical of if it wasn't for my own first hand experience working with him.
When I was 19, I began experiencing chronic acne that I desperately sought every possible avenue to heal. One day I called Anthony up (it's nearly impossible now to consult with him, so I feel very blessed to have stumbled upon him when I did) and within a minute of being on the phone he said to me, "your skin condition is stemming from a bacterial infection in your lymphatic system and we need to get focus on getting your lymphatic system moving."
I didn't understand how this man knew what he did, but I knew that I was going to take a leap of faith and try the advice he gave me to heal. My life was changed for the better. To this day I implement his advice and protocols for well-being, with life changing results.
I couldn't be more excited to put together an article that I know will help so many of my clients who struggle with brow, lash, and general hair loss. We all deserve to feel beautiful in our bodies.
So, here it goes!
To put this simply and to the point, hair loss related conditions are related to stress in the body. This doesn't mean mental-stress, where it's all in your mind and you need to take a yoga class.
The adrenals in the body support hundreds upon hundreds of different chemical processes, pumping out perfect concoctions of hormones to brush our teeth, take a shower, take that yoga class, and yup-- to grow hair.
When the adrenals become stressed, the hormone levels can go bonkers. You will often notice hairloss not during times of stress, but around 8-12 months later. When stress is chronic due to even further underlying conditions (which I am getting to...) there can be steady, chronic loss.
Adrenaline from emotional events and life stressors can have a major impact on the health of your hair. When you experience a painful situation or serious hardship, adrenaline floods your system and not only impacts the health of your liver and skin, but can negatively affect your hair as well. If you experience the loss of a loved one, go through a divorce or breakup, or suffer a terrible betrayal, your hair may develop a straw-like texture and fall out. These symptoms can occur after the hardship takes place and may continue for a period of time unless you provide your body with the nourishment and support it needs. A protein-packed hair care product is not going to give your hair the restoration you hope for. One of the best actions you can take to restore your hair is to support your adrenals. Your hair will be at its best when your adrenals are healthy. - Anthony William
The information I am presenting here today is the most empowering & important information I have to share. With that being said, it is not a quick fix and depending on the damage, takes time to heal. An average time frame for restoring adrenal health is 3-24 months.

Get your graze on, girl!
Eating something every 60-90 minutes is the key to restoring this precious organ system. It is important a couple times a day to implement "Adrenal Healing Snacks" which are a specific balance of:
+ GLUCOSE ( ex. Bananas)
+ POTTASIUM (ex. Dates)
+ SODIUM (ex. Celery)
This specific combination of foods allow the adrenals to not over or under function. When our reserves of any of these 3 elements get low, our adrenals start surging adrenaline through the body to keep us functioning. The idea is: let them rest, do some ground work for them, and they will heal.
My personal favorite is celery and dates together, or I simply drink some celery or cucumber juice before I have a fruit smoothie.
Medical experts incorrectly believe alopecia is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles that generate hair growth. This misinformation puts the blame on the patient when the truth is, medical research and medical science don’t actually know what triggers alopecia. Eventually the truth that I’ve brought to light will be discovered— that alopecia is an adrenal issue.
Medical research and science is unaware that adrenaline is made up of a complicated group of hormones that have not yet been identified. If someone has alopecia, his or her adrenals are lacking one of the undocumented hormones that make up part of the 56 different blends of adrenaline that I detail in my book Medical Medium. Ashwagandha can be a beneficial supplement for helping to restore a trace of the missing hormone. I’ve worked with people who had alopecia, and once they addressed the issues connected to their adrenal health, their hair was able to grow back. -Anthony William
The thyroid world can be a confusing and messy one, which honestly requires an entire blog post of its own. So many clients that come to me for microblading have thyroid conditions which proliferated hair loss, and I can't wait to share more on this topic. In the mean time I recommend checking out the book "Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Mystery Illness & How To Finally Heal", to discover how thyroid conditions can be successfully reversed by implementing the correct nutritional and supplemental protocols.
You can also check out the Thyroid Healing podcast for free here:
ASWAGANDHA (for stimulating specific hormones)
NETTLE (provides loads of silica)
THYME OIL (use topically, for boosting circulation)
ZINC SULFATE (protects the immune system)
B-12 (with methyl + adenosylcobalamine, to strengthen the nervous system)
HAWIIAN SPIRULINA (loaded with iron, plant-based proteins & minerals)
BARLEY GRASS JUICE POWDER (loaded with alkalizing minerals)
On top of supplement suggestions, adopting a low fat, plant-based diet will give the liver a rest and promote optimal functioning of the other organ systems. Let's be honest, if you are eating lots of junk, supplementing on top of that will likely not do you much good!
Eating a variety of fruits and veggies is optimal, although every little change does matter. Don't hold yourself back in pursuit of perfection! The little things do add up. The foods listed below are specific to help restore hair loss:
Be mindful of the amount of protein you incorporate in your diet and realize that too much protein can have negative effects on your liver and as a result, your skin, hair and nails. Try to move your focus from protein to the particular foods and supplements that can offer genuine support.
An interesting observation I have made time and again with clients is that they will re-grow a little bit of thier brow hair after a microblading session. Microblading stimulates the area because of increased blood flow.
Many clients heve concern that the process will destroy what hairs they do have. This is never the case. When done properly your natural brow is perfectly preserved.
Most clients that come to me are experiencing hairloss to some degree. It is my job to help boost thier confidence, even if it is just in the mean time while they are working to heal and get their own hair back. On the other hand, many clients of mine have great natural brows but they just like the perfected look of microblading versus their own natural brow. Either way, it's always an honor and pleasure to compliment someone's journey to feeling more comfortable in their skin.
The phenomenal thing about our bodies is that when we finally know the truth and the tools we need, we gain momentum to move forward and reverse an array of undesirable symptoms.
Whether you are struggling with hairloss that is symptomatic of a medical condition or simply have noticed hair loss with age, I do believe this information can help you greatly.
Cheers to a radiant you!
