      Hi Helen Hopefully the tips above will help with the hair loss and for an itchy scalp and dandruff you could try our Neem Shampoo.

    4 weeks ago i had my 1st period in 9 months. It's left me feeling exhausted and my hair is rapidly falling out and thinning. I already have Generalised Anxiety Disorder and this isn't helping. I have problems taking any kind of medicines or vitamins (including levothyroxine when my thyroid was playing up a few years ago) I get severe pain in the kidney area and stomach. Ive just tried taking starflower oil but have been in agony around the kidney and stomach areas. Same again when ive just tried an amino acid for adrenal support. Can you give any advice as I really need to get some menopause suppliment started. Thank you.

      Hi Mo Periods coming back like this can happen and is very often a 'last fling' by your hormones. However, it is also a good idea to get a check up from your doctor. I would also ask them to check your thyroid again as the falling hormones can often affect the thyroid in the menopause and low thyroid function can affect hair growth. Hair loss can be caused by low protein intake too so check your diet and make sure that you are getting enough and also lots of fresh foods to help supply everything that healthy hair needs. The pains in the kidney and stomach area could be caused by a number of things so does need to be checked out by your doctor as well. You could try a liquid Maca supplement as this is known to help support the adrenals and hormonal balance. Being a liquid it may be less likely to give you any digestive problems.
