No, not my detox. My hair.
I'm trying not to jump to conclusions, but in the past week I've been losing much more hair than usual - it's falling out at least triple its normal rate. It's entirely possible that the shock of the miscarriage has taken an even greater toll on my body than I'd suspected. And it's entirely likely that that trip to the naturopath is long overdue.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about reliving last year's hair drama. But I also wonder about cross-reactivity/my Christmas gluten consumption. Alopecia has been linked to gluten intolerance in many people. I definitely re-sensitized myself by strictly avoiding all gluten for seven weeks. I was meticulous. Then I totally binged on wheat-containing crap for about four or five days straight after my miscarriage. I really suffered after that. I was in pain for a week and a half, and it wasn't limited to my hips this time. Every joint in my body was weak and aching. And now, as you know if you've been reading, I've been drinking coffee every day. Lots of people who are sensitive to wheat are also sensitive to other items which cross-react, including coffee, corn, chocolate, etc. I haven't been eating any corn or chocolate, but the coffee may be affecting me.
Or maybe I'm over-thinking all of this.
I think I'll watch an episode of Bones online and go to bed early.
Breakfast - Two eggs scrambled with sauteed onions, cherry tomatoes and three slices of bacon. Coffee - weaning myself off again, so mostly decaf.
Lunch - A big salad of mixed greens, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, pecans and balsamic vinaigrette. One hot dog. *sigh*
Supper - "Breaded" chicken strips with a giant pile of steamed French beans tossed with ghee and salt.
Snacks - A banana with a small handful of pecans, and a handful of macadamias with a cup of licorice tea.
