What is the best remedy for female hair loss? I am practically bald, have been to several dermatologist without result -- none of them did any test to find out cause. Is saw palmetto safe for women to take? I am in my forties and have conlcuded that my hair loss might be due to hormonal imbalance though it has been stress induced.

Answer:

Stop gluten and plant oil foods like seeds, nuts, flax, soy, avocado, hummus, and poultry.
