The medical profession may not have a chemical cure for trichotillomania, but neuro-science can certainly assist individual trichsters, to bio-chemically cure themselves. Read the text below and you'll see how.

A Trichotillomania Cure is not so Obscure

Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may help stop hair pulling, but there is a way to cure not only the hair pulling, but also the worry thoughts, attention problems and insomnia, which often accompany the disorder.

Neuroscientists are continually detecting and documenting the ever-changing structure of the brain, and finding new ways to bring about that feel-good factor. Such change is brought about not by radical surgery or medication, but through altered attitudes and behaviour.

DNA influences, but does not determine your happiness or lack of it. If your parents and grandparents weren't happy-go-lucky or carefree, you might have to work 50% harder to achieve happiness, but you CAN still get there.

Trichotillomania affects the basal ganglia, at the frontal cortex of the brain.

High activity at the left frontal area of the cerebral cortex indicates happiness and high energy, while activity in the left frontal area of the cerebral cortex indicates sadness and stress.

Genetic, organic, and neurochemical foundations for impulse control are formed in the first two years, as are rationality and sensitivity to other people.

DNA and detrimental early experiences can cause a child to develop learning challenges and hyperactivity, emotional difficulties, and/or poor impulse-control, including hair or eyelash pulling.

The orbitofrontal cortex of the brain controls sociability and relationships. For this reason, people with trichotillomania are often shy and may be misdiagnosed with social phobia. The frontal cortex also determines our sense of self, episodic memory and our perception of our future. A good clinician will recognise that worry thoughts and social challenges are symptoms of trichotillomania, and not separately diagnose other disorders, such as Attention Deficit Disorder.

It has been proven possible, though, to reduce the distress neuro transmitters which flood these areas of the brain , and either cause, or are the cause of, hair or eyelash pulling.

In Trichnotherapy we encourage people to make long term significant changes structurally, to bring about a sense of wellbeing.

The key behaviours which boost the brain and stimulate serotonin, include:

1. Community … a sense of belonging to something is crucial (even an online community like our interactive site) nurturing close relationships. Self-expression. You may feel shy, but isolation will increase your urges to pull.

2. Eat healthily and frequently. Regularity of food, sleep, exercise, activity, inactivity and companionship are essential for Growth.

3. Consciously choose positive thought when faced with negative thought.

4. Act happy, change body language, posture and smiling.

5. Meditate : live in the NOW and give full attention to everything you do.
