We visit a lot of different trich blogs.  As we try and educate people about why they can’t stop pulling hair out, we see a common theme:

People just blame themselves for trich.

We don’t think that’s fair, and we know it’s not right.  Because the simple fact is that anyone suffering from trich would stop pulling hair out immediately if it was as simple as saying, “That’s it.  I quit.”

But it’s not.  Because with trich sufferers, there is another culprit who should be blamed.  We encourage you to read on, and find out how the blame game should be played with trichotillomania.

Why pointing fingers will help you stop pulling hair out

We are definitely a culture of finger-pointers.  Just look at our political system for a perfect example.  It’s easy to pass the buck and blame the other guy for your problems.

In this case, however, it’s warranted.  Because you’re not the problem.  You’re not the only one who is telling yourself to pull.

It’s your body.  More accurately, it’s the neurotransmitters in your body.  Of the two main types of neurotransmitters (excitatory and inhibitory), one is significantly off-balance.  And because they’re out of whack, a chemical imbalance is making you want to pull your hair out.

So don’t go dumping on yourself.  You didn’t ask for a neurotransmitter imbalance.  These were the cards you were dealt – so don’t drown in negativity.  You can’t; not if you’re going to get better.

And just how exactly will you get better?

Stop pulling hair out by getting your body in line

Okay, you understand the problem. The underlying cause for trichotillomania is a neurotransmitter imbalance in your body.

But now the onus is on you.

Now is it’s up to you to take the steps necessary to get your body in line.  What will that involve?  It’s simple.  It starts with setting up a phone consultation with Dr. Chad Oler of the Natural Path Health Center.

During the 30 minute phone consultation, you’ll review your history and your goals, and then Dr. Chad will set up a specialized program designed just for you.

What’s included in that program?  That really depends.  Generally it involves taking supplements, which are part of the amino acid therapy to help rebalance your neurotransmitters.  You may also need to make some dietary modifications.

In every case, the exact program is different.  That’s a big reason why we’ve been so successful.

So now the ball is in your court.  We’ve identified the culprit behind your inability to stop pulling hair out – your body and its neurotransmitter imbalance.  Now it’s up to you to take the next step and correct the problem.
