Health and Hair Pulling Trichotillomania, Tiredness and Immunology

Focusing on fatigue and trichotillomania, we offer simple, practical and logical tips for energy output. We explore body focused repetitive conditions such as trichotillomania, tiredness and associations with auto-immune deficiency.

Many people with trichotillomania experience high levels of tiredness. Hair pulling can be tiring and effortful. When we most need an energy boost, the very foods we crave, hit us with a subsequent energy crash. Quick-fix carbohydrates ultimately cause fast plummets in energy and lead to more cravings. This constant swinging up and down has been blamed for a number of conditions. The only way to feel better is to get off the roller coaster.

People who eat a wide variety of helpful, healthful foods and drink plenty of water, can often produce greater energy levels!

Key to higher energy are high quality proteins and unsaturated fats. If you crave carbohydrates, you can have them, just in the form of fresh fruit and vegetables. If you feel below par, the quickest way to recovery is to cut out any form of carbohydrate which doesn’t come from a plant source, or which has been altered by man and to become a different form of food, such as sugar and flour. Replace meat with fish, eggs, seeds and tofu for a week and double your protein doses, as well as making sure you go to bed at the same time each day in a dark room and get up at the same time each morning. The simplest things bring the best results.

There is a strong co-morbidity rate between emotional malaise, depression and anxiety and auto immune conditions such as fibromyalgia, and treatment of trichotillomania with vitamins and nutrition should be explored more conclusively. The trichotillomania coaching at has a very strong holistic element and approaches the problem from a practical and nutritional standpoint.

The hypnotherapy recordings for hair pulling can help relax the body and therefore help with tiredness.
