I worked volunteer clinic tonight.
A patient new to Canada presents with alopecia areata. I told him there is no medicine for it; and it is a symptom of a poor immune system with 3 potential root causes.
1. Deficiency of essential nutrients.
2. Exposure to non-physiologic substances
3. Suppressed immune system from chronic stress.
I asked him how he would rate his diet. After consideration, he said, “50%”.
I asked him if he knows what a 100% diet looks like? He replied, “no”.
I shared with him the critical importance of the multitude of flavinoids present in a daily dose of 400gram of non-starchy vegetables.
He then confided in me that he has been eating mostly processed food.
He then asked me if I can renew his stomach acid reflux medication. I shared with him the perspective that the reflux symptoms are a way his body is informing him when he is eating the wrong foods. I encourage him to stop the medication and respond to his symptoms by stopping all processed foods.
I then shared with him a scientifically proven way called BAM to manage stress and encouraged him to learn more.
He and his wife both thanked me and left more informed.
