Hair Pulling Disorder (Trichotillomania)

by S

Hi,

I've been diagnosed with Trichotillomania or hair pulling disorder. I want to know if I can break this "habit" without medication. I haven't used the medication I was given, but I haven't been able to stop with will power either. Seems like the more I want to stop, the more I pull. I'd appreciate it very much if you could give me some advice on how to stop pulling without the use of medication which I am strongly against.
Regards,
S

Ben's Answer:

Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder) is very difficult to treat effectively with conventional treatments or therapy, however some people have had incredible and very fast results using EFT Tapping. There are several case studies that can be found written up about people with life-long trichotillomania that disappeared completely after using EFT Tapping. (Tapping works well for most types of obsessive/compulsive disorders also).

Definitely worth trying!

Best Wishes,
Ben Schwarz, MFT
