Hair Loss and the Vitamin Connection: A Personal Testimony

           About two years ago, at age 44, I started having a substantial amount of hair loss for no apparent reason. As a woman, this can be quite troubling. It began slowly enough, but three months later, it was fairly noticeable, and I was really starting to worry. I was already eating well, exercising, taking vitamins, and taking a natural approach to my health, which made this even more baffling for me.

Previously, I had gone to Abundant Life Wellness (Dr. Nelson's) for footbaths, so I decided to make an appointment with her to see if she could see if she could help determine what may be the underlying cause of this. Through muscle testing, she was able to determine what my body was lacking, and some supplements that could help. As it turned out, the combination of chlorine in the Pittsburgh water, a deficiency in certain minerals and not digesting my protein, was causing all of this! Boy was I relieved! Those were things I knew I could change. A few months after staying on her regimen, I noticed lots of new hair, and was finally feeling like my old self again.

            I am extremely grateful for Dr. Nelson's knowledge, expertise, and thoroughness. Not only was I worried it could be something much worse than what it turned out to be, I am sure that most doctors would have put me on a prescription medication that could have easily had far greater side-effects long term.

Because Dr. Nelson is able to determine exactly how much of a supplement someone needs, I feel great knowing I'm not wasting money taking things my body doesn't need! Her treatment is not a "one-size-fits-all", it's a well thought out plan for each individual’s needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a natural approach to their health issues! *
