“Imagine taking a shower and holding what you know is an abnormal amount of hair in your hands after shampooing; brushing and looking, running your fingers through it and looking again. It had been 6 weeks since the day I noticed – 6 weeks of worry and I was freaked out. As a professional woman who is concerned about appearance, this was a distraction, to say the least. I tried the doctor and was patted on the head and told nothing was wrong. I tried the doctor again, asking for blood draws and tests. They complied but I could tell they thought I was overreacting. Their tests turned up nothing and I was told they could refer me to a hair loss clinic. I had visions of transplants, weaves, wigs and I didn’t know what I was going to do next; and then my sister said she would call her alternative therapist and just ask her.
Sam explained the situation, and the first words out of Sabrina’s mouth were, “It’s hormonal.” Exactly! She called and reassured me that I would not lose all my hair, that she could help and it would be all right. It wasn’t necessarily what she said, but it was how she said it. She was confident, and I believed her. I think her confidence was as important to me as her diagnosis. My hair was falling out. Every day, every wash, every brush, every time I touched it seemed it would just be falling out. Mind you, I have a lot of hair, so not many people noticed. This actually made it harder on me, because my family, friends and the doctors just couldn’t see it. But I know my hair, know how many twists of a pony-tail ring it takes to secure it (normally 2, but now it was 4) and in my mind I saw a 50 percent loss, based on the pony-tail alone. I could also see a difference in my hair line; I could tell when I washed it. It looked, well, it looked awful to me.
I’m in Texas, Sabrina is in Colorado. She wanted me to come out for an appointment, but I couldn’t get out for weeks, and I thought by that time I’d be bald. But Sabrina sent stop-gap measures within 2 days. It didn’t really matter if they helped or not – I felt better just doing something, and she sounded so certain. I started taking Chinese herbs and homeopathic medicine. The amount of hair on the brush, floor and shower started to decrease. The office visit went well. I’m very logical in how I receive and process information and Sabrina walked me through what she was going to do, how she would do it and explained her reasons for the conclusions she drew. I agreed. I started a regimen of drops, herbs and supplements. Not only did the hair loss stop, I felt better. I still feel better – mentally, physically and emotionally.
She listened to all my symptoms, asked me about not just my physical symptoms, but my life, lifestyle, habits, relationships, etc. She factored in all the information I gave her before drawing any conclusions. I felt she was authentic, genuine and compassionate. She followed up with phone calls to check my progress.
I have recommended her to family and friends and will continue to do so. In fact, I have consulted her again, myself, for a rash my medical doctor told me would eventually go away on it’s own within six weeks to six months. With Sabrina’s treatment, that time was more than cut in half.”
