Trichotillomania Treatment Tips That Can Significantly Reduce Or Stop Trichotillomania Now

Trichotillomania treatment or even dermatillomania treatment usually doesn’t have a high success rate. Have you been trying to find a good trichotillomania treatment method to help you and had no luck. This article will be a great place to start when looking for treatment options. The tips below will help you to start reducing your urges and finally take control.

Trichotillomania Treatment That Adds More Toxins Into Your Body Is Not A Good Idea

People are starting to realize that SSRI’s/anti depressants don’t work. They are also finding out that it is just more negative stuff being put into their body. These pills are unnecessary and actually slows down and hinders your successful recovery.

There are other factors involved for some but for the most part if you read and apply what I am about to share, you will be well on your way to putting an end to the urges.

Below I made a list all of the things that the medical industry has failed to provide us. An explanation of why the medical industry has failed us and why to not listen to anybody peddling pills to you. What I find sad is a lot of people are exposed only to medical doctors and their theories  There are doctors out there that think because they have a plaque on the wall or a degree from a certain university that they are somehow more credible than the people who have struggled with this problem. I have learned to heal myself with natural methods without a doctors overpriced generic advice.

Most people think that if these natural methods work why isn’t everybody taking advantage of them, and doctors are not using them. Well it is mainly for the reason that doctors are only taught one school of thought. This narrow short sighted type of thinking has allowed cancer and many other illnesses to thrive. The western medical industry and many who believe in it have been left in the dark.

Many are getting misinformation about nutrition and bogus independent test and research claims. The reason that this all makes sense is that the drug companies need sick people to buy there drugs. If you eat right and stay healthy there would be no need to see a doctor unless you broke a bone. For years people have been misinformed due to the insane amounts of profit that there is in keeping people sick and tired and needy.

I am outraged that all I see is people charging you for advice on what anti depressant to take and how you need to just change your habits with cognitive behavioral therapy and or habit reversal therapy. These methods are barely better than just saying to someone “you need to just stop pulling or picking and just quit.” There is a bigger underlying problem and or force causing these people to have uncontrollable urges and this article is focused on pinpointing the main things that are causing these urges.

Trichotillomania Treatment Is As Easy As Changing A Few Things In Your Life


Ok so I will start going down the list of problems that can be causing the symptom of picking or pulling.

#1 -Artificial sweeteners 

Aspartame is one of the genetically altered poison that needs to be eliminated for many reasons. The main reason is, it has been shown for some to be the very thing that is causing there picking or pulling. Getting rid of diet pops and anything that is “sugar free” such as gum, jello etc can help reduce many types of cancers and can cause you to have uncontrollable picking urges and not know why. Also Reduce or eliminate regular sugar as well as it can start causing problems but artificial sweeteners are much worse.

I wrote a full article on just aspartame here.

#2 -Gluten intolerance’s

Many people who have trichotillomania as well as dermatillomania have a gluten intolerance and usual may not even know it. The picking and pulling is a
symptom of the gluten intolerance for some. All processed pastas, breads, microwave pizza other frozen ready made meals all usually will be packed with gluten.

Changing your diet to eating only whole foods with no processing is one of the best ways to get your urges to stop now. Many people with trichotillomania reported that by cutting down on the gluten and franken-foods has had a positive impact on greatly reducing their urges to pull their hair as well as pick their skin.

Easy Tip:

Try eating for your specific Blood type or try eating a Paleo diet. If you can’t get yourself on a diet schedule just yet at least start trying to not eat anything that comes in a colorful box. Anything with a fun colorful label and neat song or advisement but no claims of how good it is for you is usually bad Gluten and GMO type foods.

#3 Not getting enough minerals

Trichotillomania Treatment  l-lysine is a good one to try that has helped out many with curbing trichotillomania urges.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, describes OCD as “an anxiety disorder characterized by complaints of persistent or repetitive
thoughts (obsessions) or behaviors (compulsions).

Trichotillomania is a disorder that involves the compulsive hair pulling. The disorders share an addictive quality that is rooted in anxiety, they may also co-occur. Given this relationship, scientists have looked at whether certain compounds such as lysine may play a role in these disorders.

Lysine has been shown to help with stress and dealing with anxiety so taking this
is not only good for you but can also be that extra kick you may need to stop picking or pulling completely. This little vitamin also gets rid of cold sores fast.

#4 Nutritional deficiencies in the brain are the problem that antidepressant drugs can’t solve

Pulling at your hair or picking your skin is typically caused by a nutritional deficiency in the brain. Anti depressant drugs have very low or no effectiveness. These drugs also have the ability to deplete the already low levels of neurotransmitters making the cause of the problem worse.

Standard medical care of hair pulling children (trichotillomania) with drugs is not even a good idea. This is to be expected, you don’t want to treat a nutritional
deficiency with a drug, treat it with nutrient. The typical treatment for trichotillomania is measuring to see if the bald patches have shrunk and just giving more pills.There is risk of suicide and other problems from the drugs as well.

Taking all this into consideration you wonder how the supposedly highly educated doctors would use this treatment approach. Using drugs to solve a nutritional problem is questionable at best. If you find a person telling you that this is the answer, I suggest you run the other way or you will be picking or pulling the rest of your life feeling that it is somehow your fault.

When the right dosing value of nutrients is established, the hair pulling and/or skin picking abruptly stops and the picker or puller simply just doesn’t have the urge to do it anymore. Prior to the development of this type of treatment, real results treating trichotillomania with prescription drugs were poor to non-existent. This approach in managing the newly discovered relative nutritional deficiency associated with trichotillomania stands above any other treatment or management approach.

#5 Magnesium deficiency can be a main factor that is causing the pulling or picking   urges

Most often, deficiency is simply a result of failure to obtain adequate magnesium from such dietary sources as:

  • Wheat germ
  • Cocoa
  • Desiccated liver
  • Eggs
  • Green vegetables
  • Soybeans
  • Almonds

In some instances, however, absorption of nutrients can be impaired by coexisting illness, such as an intestinal infection. In such an event, much of the ingested magnesium may be lost from the body.

Magnesium Deficiency can be the main problem when struggling with trichotillomania and dermatillomania. When you put back the Magnesium into your body that your deficient in many report that they no longer have trichotillomania and or OCD symptoms.

How Much Magnesium Should You Take:

  • 350 mg – 400 mg of Magnesium Taurate (take with a 100 calorie snack or a meal) Take an additional 1,000 mg to 2,000 mg of a Taurate supplement.

Some people find they take as much as 2,000 mg of Magnesium Taurate to relieve their symptoms. Avoid Calcium supplements, they are dangerous and will shorten your life. You get all the calcium you need from natural sources. Space your Magnesium dosages apart at four hour intervals. If you feel your body is out of balance and isn’t functioning right with some symptoms still remaining, I would think that excess calcium is to blame, especially if you have been supplementing it.

Calcium and magnesium need to be in the correct proportions

Calcium turns from a nutrient into a pollutant causing heart malfunction, swollen and painful joints, calcification of vital organs, senility, and weakening bones that eventually completely degenerate. For these exact reasons excess calcium can become a real problem, while excess magnesium, on the other hand, is not of any concern. Unlike calcium, magnesium does not build up in the body; excess amounts are simply flushed out.

What country has the highest rate of pasteurized milk consumption  America. Now, what country has the highest calcium supplement consumption? America. So you would think America must have the lowest occurrence in the world of osteoporosis, No We have the highest rate.


Excess calcium combined with low magnesium. A lethal combination, Taking more calcium will not fix a calcium deficiency. It is magnesium that will handle the calcium deficiency as well as the magnesium deficiency. It will dissolve any excess calcium from the body, while helping any needed calcium to assimilate. All of this will not only get rid of trichtotillomania symptoms but help your bones and overall health as well.


#6 Calcification of pineal gland

Not alot of people discuss this as the western medical doctors completely disregard the pineal gland. They do not consider the pineal gland as a important functioning organ. They think of it like your appendix or spleen, and that it is unnecessary.  They are starting to find lots of reasons that calcification of the pineal gland are bad. The pineal gland is important in terms of aging and disease prevention. The pineal gland serves as a magnetoreceptor organ in the brain of humans and other mammals and its stimulation with an alternating current pulsed magnetic field has shown beneficial effects in the treatment of neurological and mental disorders which are associated with or related to impairment of pineal melatonin functions.
