Trichotillomania: Treatment Options
Studies have shown that the most effective method of treating trichotillomania is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Other widely used treatment options include: hypnotherapy, medication (please also see our medication page for doctors), dietary changes, food supplements, application of ointments and creams or holistic treatments like homeopathy, acupuncture and aromatherapy. We also offer an online coaching service that is very effective at treating trichotillomania.
One study has found that supplementing with the amino acid N-acetyl cysteine is as effective as CBT at reducing symptoms of trichotillomania.
