Why is my daughter losing her hair

Edited , 3 users are following.

My daughter is in her early fifties . She has lost about 40% of her long hair .

She was diagnosed with osteoporosis five years ago

Since the age of 14 she has been a vegetarian and will go vegan at times.

I cannot help but think being a vegetarian is the cause of this. There's an old saying - you are what you put or don't put in your mouth if you get my drift.

Otherwise she is very health conscious and supplements her diet with quality vitamins A C E D K2 . She uses only accentual oils on herself and does not use house hold chemicals

She has sought help from her GP and nutritionalist whom up until now have not been unable to help her!!!

Can someone advise please?

      Thank you tt I think you may be right.

      My daughter does have a lot of stress in her life as we all do these days.

      She has recently been diagnosed with the heavy metal Thallium in her urine .. no one knows why.

      I do know thallium is in oil /petrol etc which means everyone could have it.

      Thank you so much for your help.
