Alopecia – The Autoimmune Disorder
The Healing Path offers a natural hair loss treatment called Endocrine Strengthener, which can prevent hair loss from alopecia by balancing the immune system.
Alopecia – The Autoimmune Disorder
An autoimmune disorder occurs when your immune system becomes misguided and attacks healthy tissue. In the case of alopecia, the immune system attacks healthy hair follicles causing the hair to fall out leaving the scalp very smooth.
The three forms of alopecia include:
1) Alopecia Areata - patches of bald spots, usually on the scalp, but they also can be in the beard or other areas
2) Alopecia Totalis - complete loss of scalp hair and often eyebrows and eyelashes. This form is especially frustrating if you are a woman because you still have to shave your legs and underarms.
3) Alopecia Universalis - total loss of all body hair
My Story and How You can Prevent Hair Loss
I had alopecia totalis from 1984 – 1995. It started as alopecia areata (scattered bald spots) and developed into alopecia totalis where I lost all the hair on my head plus my eyebrows and eyelashes. This was a time before the internet and I felt like I was the only person in the world with this horrid condition. I felt helpless to prevent hair loss. I wore a wig for 11 years and it was very frustrating when I wanted to go swimming or when I needed to wear a helmet or drive in a convertible.
In 1995 I developed a formula for my daughter, Autumn. She had Epstein Barr and was very ill. Doctors said, “It is her immune system and the only thing you can do is make sure she gets enough rest.” Well I thought if she got any more rest, she would be in a coma. She could barely make it through the day and she was a senior in high school at the time. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and follow my instincts. Remembering what my grandmother and family friend, John Lonewolf had taught me about herbs. I concentrated on the safest herbs that balanced and strengthened the endocrine (immune) system such as, ginger, kelp, pau d’ arco and licorice. I made it in tincture form. As a matter of fact, I made a whole Mason jar full. Autumn recovered nicely in about 6 weeks and I still had quite a bit of tincture left.
Now, after having Alopecia Totalis for 11 years I gave up hope of having hair again. But I thought I would take the Endocrine Strengthener with the single hope of getting fewer colds. Within a month I noticed hair was growing back, AND it never fell out, and I have had hair ever since. If I go for two weeks without taking Endocrine Strengthener I sometimes started loosing eyelashes again. All I do is resume the tincture to prevent hair loss.
It’s important to keep in mind that although alopecia is not life threatening, it isn’t not uncommon for the immune system to attack other healthy parts of the body. In my case it was my thyroid gland.
Clearly I didn’t develop Endocrine Strengthener as a natural hair loss treatment albeit a very effective one; it doesn’t treat the symptoms, it corrects the cause. So to prevent hair loss due to alopecia, start taking Endocrine Strengthener at the first signs of any unusual hair loss or bald spots.
Endocrine Strengthener works for much more serious autoimmune disorders such as, Crohn’s Disease, Lupus and Epstein Barr. I never thought that I would have hair again but as it turned out there are safe and natural remedies to prevent hair loss due to alopecia.

For autoimmune disorders – alopecia totalis
Endocrine Strengthener fortifies the immune system by nourishing the endocrine glands. It has been very helpful for those with alopecia totalis and highly recommended for anyone fighting a Candida overgrowth. This formula can also be to ward off colds and flu when taken at the first signs. Endocrine Strengthener is highly recommended for anyone suffering from any form of autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Totalis; Lupus; arthritis; chronic fatigue; Epstein Barr and Crohn’s. Alopecia Areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system attacks health hair follicles causing baldness that ranges from patchy bald spots to total loss of body hair.
Note: At the first sign of cold or flu take 5-10 eyedroppers full 2-3 times daily for 2-4 days. Judge the proper amount based on your size and condition of your immune system.

Endocrine Strengthener supports the immune system. Use it for a fibromyalgia herbal treatment or autoimmune disorders. It contains Pau d arco that balances the immune. It is useful for herpes, warts, alopecia totalis and cancer. Black haw helps to maintain healthy hormone levels and is an antispasmodic. While chaste berries are also an antispasmodic, they also help depression and headaches. Echinacea is well known for its immune support but it is also an excellent blood purifier and infection fighter. Ginger improves circulation, prevents nausea and is very useful for childhood diseases such as whooping cough and chicken pox. Licorice cleanses the blood, clears the lungs, prevents colds and increases energy. Kelp is a good source of iodine which helps protect against radiation. It promote adrenal health and protects the thyroid, pituitary gland and arteries.

What to Expect When Taking
Endocrine Strengthener for Alopecia
Endocrine Strengthener is an herbal tincture that balances the immune system. If you read my story on my website, you probably know that it cured my Alopecia Totalis (loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Since then I have enormous success with my clients. I recommend giving it at least three to six months of consistent doses to give your immune system a chance to normalize.
Endocrine Strengthener comes in a four oz bottle and the dose is 1 dropper (ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BULB) per 50 lbs, of body weight 2 times daily (usually morning and evening). If for some reason you miss a dose, simply double the next dose. One bottle lasts about a month for 150 lb person at the normal dose. Please read all the literature that comes with your order.
For the first week it is suggested to double the normal dose to help jump-start your immune system.
I would say that the success rate of those who have stayed in touch with me and have been consistent in their doses is about 80-90 percent.
Some people show results in the first month but I suggest taking Endocrine Strengthener for at least three to six months to give it a chance to rebuild your immune system. Children seem to recover quicker than adults do and women generally recover quicker than men. Also you should consider the degree of alopecia you have and adjust the time accordingly.
If you have Alopecia Areata [patchy balding] give it at least 3 months. If you have Alopecia Totalis [no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes] give it at least 5 months. If you have Alopecia Universalis [no hair anywhere on the body] give it at least 6 months. Of not everyone will fall into these categories as we are all individuals.
You should start to see hair growing after this time. You will probably notice that you have more energy, fewer colds and generally just feel better due to your improved immune system. But please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are feeling; though some cases can be stubborn; there are things we can do to tweak your recovery.
This really works; try to be patient; one gentleman took 9 months before hair started showing but he had the most severe form, alopecia universalis.
When the hair first comes in it is light and wispy but as it grows it turns back to its natural thickness and color.
You should continue to take Endocrine Strengthener if you see re-growth. Remember that it is not just growing hair but it is restoring your compromised immune system. This takes time.
For anyone who has had alopecia for any length of time and has tried many treatments that ultimately failed, it is hard to believe that anything will work. I know because after 11 years I had given up hope that I would EVER have hair again.
So I ask you to trust the treatment because it works.
