SUFFERER’S DIARY: ALMOST COMPLETE REGROWTH
A bit of background: I am 44 years old, father of 2 children, (14 and 10 years) and youngest of 3 brothers. We, including my parents, have had full and thick hair all our lives. Even my dad who is almost 77 now and god bless him, has hair as white as snow but as thick as carpet. Diabetes type 2 runs in the family and thyroid underfunction as well, or Hashimotos in my case. It’s well-controlled and the endocrinologist is very happy with all my blood readings. I am taking 50mg Thyroxine 6 out of 7 days.
In early March I noticed a bald spot on my beard; that became 2 after a few days, (each as big as a thumbprint), and on the 22nd of March I noticed a bald spot on my head right in the middle towards the right – as big as a cherry tomato. Bald and smooth.
This then progressed rapidly. Over the next couple of weeks I was shedding hair all the time. After brushing, there were 20 hairs in the brush; after showering, maybe 30 in my hands; in the morning, 20 on my pillow. 10-12 bald spots developing left right and centre but also diffuse hair loss all over the scalp!
On the 23rd of April I decided to shave it all off. Cortisone shots (only 1 in early April) and tablets (from early April to early May) were taken; no results, and frankly, I was always against taking those…just too many long term side effects.
On the 8th of June I started with the RLT trial as per booklet I had received. The first 4 days were as tough as hell (by day 4 I could only rest and drink water) but they are absolutely necessary to cleanse the body and detox it thoroughly.
Have a look at the photos documenting progress.I have now almost achieved complete regrowth. A couple of smaller bald patches remain but the hair feels thick almost as it used to be and it is no longer falling out. I can rub it and wash it and scrub it; maybe 4-5 hairs will be falling, that’s it.
The only other thing I used (other than RLT therapy) was applying daily protein Brylcream (white stuff in a red pot…I think also available in the US)
Please let me know in case you have any questions. Many thanks again for your support and your interest in my case
SUFFERER’S DIARY: IT’S NOT ABOUT VANITY, IT’S ABOUT HAVING A HEALTHY, FULLY FUNCTIONAL IMMUNE SYSTEM
Hello, I wanted to give an update as I’ve completed the 4-week RLT Prommune Therapy. I actually finished 30 days on it on Thursday August 8. I’ve just ordered some more Prommune supplement because I’m going to continue with the diet. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in April of 2007. The next year I pretty much lost all of my hair (shaved what little I had left). Soon after, I lost my eyebrows, eyelashes, and other body hair. My hair has come and gone in the past 5 years, but never really anything more than the occasional patch of dark hair and white/clear fine baby like hair all over my head, eyebrows and eyelashes. Last year, my left eyebrow grew back dark, but the right one is still pretty much non existent except for the short fine white hairs. This is pretty much what I looked like when I started the program. So from what I can tell, my Alopecia hasn’t progressed. In fact when I pull on the patches of hair I have, they don’t come out where they usually would. I also haven’t had the burning, tingling sensation on my scalp which always indicates to me that I will lose hair in that particular area. My right eyebrow is also looking like there are some darker hairs forming at the inner and outer brow. My front hairline was gone and it looks like now some fine darker hair is filling in.
The diet has been surprisingly easy to follow. I think mostly because it is so simple, it doesn’t require a lot of preparation on my part. The only trouble I have is the tomatoes. I’ve never liked tomatoes and even though I thought I would look forward to eating them after the first 4 days of preparation, I find I still have to chop them up fine, mix them with the cucumber then cover it in lots of fresh black pepper. Then I can tolerate them. I enjoy eating everything else though. I’ve lost 16 pounds since the start of the program and feel healthier in general. I do occasionally have some stomach distress, but I think it’s mostly from the large amounts of fiber I’m getting in a day. Aside from my hair, my mood has improved greatly. I don’t have the mood swings I used to have. I also didn’t have the extremely painful menstrual cramps that have plagued me every month.
I’m hopeful that this could be the answer to Alopecia. I feel like I always knew that eating a certain way would help eliminate food allergies, I just didn’t know how to do it. I thought to myself when I started this that if I were to grow my hair back, would I be able to eat like this forever? The answer is yes! It’s not about vanity, it’s about having a healthy, fully functional immune system. I know now that if you have one autoimmune disease you are more likely to have another. I’ve had psoriasis since I was 18. My dad also hasscleroderma. I always worried that I would get that. I never knew that I could possibly get other autoimmune diseases. So my priority is to make my body healthy so I can lower the potential of developing other diseases such as scleroderma or rheumatoid arthritis, etc. I’m sorry this was so long, but I thought I would give some background. I look forward to receiving my next bottle of Prommune and giving another update in a month.
SUFFERER’S DIARY: I WILL SERIOUSLY NEED A HAIRCUT BY OCTOBER
I hope you are well. It’s JC here from AUSTRALIA.
Just a quick update, mate: Since we corresponded last in mid July, I have been continuing with your strict diet and the supplements and have by now almost achieved full regrowth! Mind you I started the RLT Prommune diet only on the 8th of June, it’s barely 2 months later, I will send through some photos over the next couple of days but it is totally amazing. If my regrowth continues at this rate I will seriously need a haircut by October. Not kidding.
The hair feels thicker everywhere and apart from 5 spots, 2 of which fairly small about the size of a pencil rubber eraser and 3 about the size of a thumb print (so they are still small enough to easily get covered)it has all pretty much filled in.I am hoping the rest will fill in too, if I can only continue to follow the diet further which I think I can cause I do not miss any of the junk I used to eat: no more bread (full of toxic wheat here in Australia), sweets, candy, cheese – I don’t miss that stuff at all,but am looking forward to my organic yogurt, eggs, salad, tomatoes, spinach, shitaki mushrooms, salmon, cucumbers etc.
I definitely got diagnosed with AA in early April and it was def. no mild case as I was losing hair by the hour, literally! One shower and I had 30 hairs in my hand, one brushing and another 20 fell out. Now, I have maybe 4-5 I can count after a shower.
You have mastered the art to turn on and off your AA and hence you have demonstrated that it is in your case not just a normal remission.
Thanking you once again for all your advice and your ongoing support.
SUFFERER’S DIARY: MOTHER TELLS OF SON’S UNIVERSALIS RECOVERY
After a search for answers from India, Canada to Florida and everywhere in between, I decided to say a quick prayer and do an Internet search one more time; that is where I found Healing Alopecia Areata. So called “experts” in the field had told us about treatments that would “make my son grow hair but that couldn’t promise it wouldn’t cause cancer” and others have simply said “there is no cure and nothing we can do.” How could they say such things and expect a mother to just accept the answer? Although I am very thankful for my son’s overall health, there had to be more. I believe that when we put good things in our body, it has the ability to make a lot of repairs and reversals on its own. I had spent months researching studies and felt that the answer was not more drugs but changing our lifestyle and supporting the body with the needs it has to reverse disease and that is exactly where the RLT protocol seemed like an answer to our prayers. My son had AA which was progressing to AU and began the full protocol on April 22, 2013. Since I never want my child to go through anything alone and to show support, I followed the dietary guidelines with him. I couldn’t ask him to make sacrifices that I wasn’t willing to do myself. It isn’t easy by any means but neither is fighting a disease that seems to have more questions than answers. Even with the dietary restrictions, he was able to play strenuous tennis, go to school and even eventually improve his muscle mass. His energy level was great and his seasonal allergies have been less severe. The support of Rob has been great and he always comes through with encouragement and answers. It has taken my son a little longer to recover than it did Rob but the signs of healing are increasing each week. There is new growth each week and even his pediatrician confirmed and was amazed that this was so much more than just spontaneous regrowth. In fact the pediatrician told us that “I have never seen anyone have such a success in fighting and coming back from this disease and I can’t wait to see you again in a few months.” There is new growth where there was absolutely nothing and the regrowth is widespread; mature and immature growth mixture overall. Rob has offered us tweaks and suggestions in changing my son’s diet to improve results, has worked with his school in ensuring that absences were excused during the full protocol procedures and in making sure his dietary needs are met in the fall. You can actually “hear” the excitement in the communication with Rob every time he sees an improvement. It is nice to have support from someone who truly understands what it means to go through the disease and have literally no acceptable answers until now. If you or someone you know is battling this disease, don’t give up hope. The only way to fight this disease is to band together and give strength to this research through positive results. Instead of continuing to fund false hope and pharmaceutical companies, why not do something good for the body and give it the opportunity to recover with RLT? - Mother of Alopecia Universalis patient
SUFFERER’S DIARY: WHAT CAN I SAY – IT’S QUITE AMAZING!
Dear Rob, It’s JC here from Melbourne, Australia. I started with RLT Therapy on the 8th of June after receiving the package with the powder and the booklet. What can I say – it’s quite amazing! Not only have I lost 13 kilos (from 94 down to 81 kilos) and am feeling terrific (playing my beloved weekly football I am as fast as I used to be 10 years ago since carrying so much less weight, also riding my bike is a breeze again), no not only that but my hair is growing back and has stopped falling out!!! I wash and rub it in the shower and there might be not more than 2 or 3 hairs in my hands or in the brush afterwards. It had shaved it all off in late April and up until mid June there was only some small re-growth . Now it looks white in some places and feels still a bit soft and in some places like baby fuzz and some small bald patches remain, but there is definitely some very significant progress, it’s filling in and getting thicker left right and centre and certain spots that were smooth and bald have experienced almost total re-growth. Unreal, Rob! And last but not least I would like to promote your way of tackling alopecia areata in Australia, I want people here to understand that cortisone deals with the symptoms but is not addressing the root cause which your solution clearly does, the root cause seems to sit in our gut, that’s where we need to act! Even without regrowth, the diet alone is such a wise health choice.
SUFFERERS DIARY: ALOPECIA UNIVERSALIS, AQUAGENIC PRURITUS AND RLT THERAPY
I have had AU since November 2011. I tried systemic cortisone, cortisone shots in the blood stream, several vitamins, and countless topical solutions. I also tried homeopathy. Nothing worked. Through searching online I stumbled on healingalopeciaareata.com. I contacted Robert Swierski and started RLT therapy on Saturday, June 29, 2013, all the way in Dubai, and now to Canada. The first 4 days are quite tough. Though only a small quantity of juices and water are allowed, yet, hunger for some reason does not strike. Despite the tough diet, I was able to do quite heavy cardio and weight training with absolutely no trouble at all. Energy, alertness, and lightness are there during those first day, together of course with a slight sense of food deprivation. Every step has been monitored by Rob and his close supervision and encouragement are additional ingredients to add to every day’s menu.. The next days were blissful in comparison to the first 4 days! With solid foods, the days are perfect. The vitamins are also much more effective. During the day, I felt ten times more energized than I’ve been for months. Doubled my work, doubled my gym workout, and felt great! Whenever an ingredient was missing, or a quantity seemed questionable, substitutions and answers came in instantly by email…around the clock, including international time zones From Dubai to Montreal. The diet is quite easy, even with long distance travel, or long hours of work, or any other possible time span and geographic location. It is really not mission impossible at all with the live support I am getting all through. I’m on day 9 now, and have just spotted the first set of small shiny hairs!! One more piece of good news! I suffer from aquagenic pruritis since 5 yrs now, which always bothers me quite a lot in the current summer moisture and humidity. On the 4th day of the RLT I noticed that I haven’t had any prick [itching]. I tried to induce it, put water on, scrubbed my skin, went in and out of the humid balcony.. Nothing! So far, I only got very few pricks at the gym and that’s it.
WOMAN SAYS… RLT BENEFITS ARE FAR REACHING
I have dealt with autoimmune diseases for a long time. I didn’t realize that many of the problems I was having were autoimmune related until years later after being diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. First, it started with small patches about the size of a dime. Eventually they always went away. Then one day I was attacked and assaulted almost to the point of my death. This triggered what I have been told was a “response” and resulted in having complete and total hair loss all over my body. This happened about 4 years ago.
About a year later I began to feel fatigue so bad I could barely make it through an 8 hour day. My skin was so dry. I was having night sweats so bad I would wake up to soaking wet sheets and even during the day I would sweat but feel cold at the same time. I also gained about 60 lbs in one year though I had changed nothing I was doing (except starting to exercise more and eat healthier). To no avail…I could not lose the weight. Finally, I was diagnosed with “thyroid” disease which I would later learn wasn’t a thyroid problem at all, but rather, an autoimmune illness called Hashimoto’s. Needless to say, I was miserable.
I consulted with a chiropractor who claimed to be able to help women with Hashimoto’s. (Most sufferers of this disease andautoimmune diseases in general I have learned are been women). He suggested I try a restricted diet among a few other odd exercises I did at home. I have to say I was very skeptical. But I agreed, and within 3 months I had lost close to 18 lbs and was feeling much better. Keep in mind, I was practically starving myself before and STILL could not lose weight.
Since, I have given this Prommune Supplement and RLT Diet a preliminary try. I have not been fully committed. However, even with a slight change of diet I’ve been able to notice some pretty drastic and welcomed changes. These range from feeling better overall to having increased energy. I’ve noticed that my skin is much softer; I have a glow to my face and even look younger! Not to mention the weight loss.
I’ve been a sufferer of autoimmune diseases for many years. For most people, this will be an ongoing problem without some sort of change in diet. It is normal to expect autoimmune diseases to start coming in waves after you learn you have the first one. And doctors will be of no help. Not because they are not good people, but because they are not taught about these diseases. They are taught to treat “symptoms”. But treating symptoms of an autoimmune disease is like putting a small Band-Aid on a huge, gaping wound. It won’t fix or address the root of the problem. But they sure are great for the pharmaceutical companies. It is my belief that their goal is to keep you sick and autoimmune diseases are the golden goose egg of the pharmaceutical companies. And in some cases, not all, the doctors are in on it too! Imagine you get to take your family on a free 2 week vacation to some exotic resort JUST for prescribing some of these drugs. All paid for by the pharmaceutical companies. What a gimmick they’ve got going on.
Enough on that because it just gets me angry…and should you too.
I decided I was finally done with doctors because even though I was on thyroid medication and my thyroid levels showed normal, I still had all the symptoms. Sound familiar? To treat my “symptoms” the doctors would prescribe me Zoloft for depression and Synthroid for my thyroid and the list goes on. And NONE of them helped me. But I had been so brainwashed over the years that this was what I was supposed to do that I went on my way with my cocktail of all these different drugs for years. No doubt they too caused me more problems. It was finally time to stop. I was very skeptical in believing that all I needed to do was to change my diet. Really! If it were THAT simple, then why hadn’t anyone else recommended it? Well, I know why now…for the reasons I stated above.
Many people with auto immune diseases are also deficient in some nutrients. The reasons for this as I understand it is that the body will not absorb but rather eliminate these much needed nutrients thus wreaking even more havoc
on the body. So with anything, even a healthy diet, it isn’t much good if you are not absorbing nutrients. But a poor diet contributes to your body’s inability to absorb these much needed vitamins as well.
Do your body some good and give a new diet a try. Since going on the RLT diet and taking Prommune I’ve also gone off ALL medications…including high blood pressure. And guess what? I’ve NEVER felt better in my life! I now have small patches of my hair growing back too. It’s not where I want it yet, but like the years of abuse I’ve done to my body through poor diets that contain MSG (illegal in Canada by the way), gluten (this stuff is just garbage), preservatives (do I really want to eat something that could sit on my counter top for 2 years and still look, feel, and taste the same?), and all the other garbage I can’t even pronounc. I can understand why it may take some time to get back to normal. Even my blood pressure has been normal ever since and my doctor is baffled. That is probably the best part. Worst case scenario in trying something like the RLT Prommune therapy is that you become healthier and feel better. I think that’s a pretty good trade off. - Name Withheld
