  1. Awesome website. I've been battling hair loss for many years and it's great to have so many remedies to try out. Your site is so packed full of great information. Your article on Iron is very informative. Have you ever tried homeopathic iron? It's called Ferrum met. For anemia 3x - 6x is good and it will heal many of the underlying gynecological conditions that usually go hand in hand with iron deficiency. It doesn't create any of the problems that go with the usual doses of iron.
    All the best.
