My Reversing Alopecia Course: What They Said
I just wrapped up running my first Reversing Alopecia online masterclass series. It’s something I’d been planning for a couple of years and finally pulled it off.
You can find testimonials below.
I wasn’t necessarily expecting any of my participants to start growing hair in the short-term, given that it can take a while for follicles to be signaled (at the onset of the course, I told them about three months in the best of circumstances), but as you can see, several of them saw immediate results.
I was scared to death to do this. Would people trust me? Would they believe that I’d struggled greatly, given that although I’d been 1/3 bald, I didn’t do a great job of chronicling my journey with photos—both when things were bad and when my hair was growing back in?
Would they believe that I’d worked with many alopecia clients, given that I didn’t have many photos of their journeys, only testimonials?
I was obsessive about infusing everything I’ve learned into this course. I launched it, and enrollment started immediately flowing in from all over the world.

The alopecia community has been greatly underserved. In fact, what we’ve been served is a big fat bill of goods.
As if I didn’t already know it, getting to know more about the experiences of my wonderful course participants has shown me even more how generally ignorant the medical/dermatology/endocrinology community is about hair loss and alopecia.
It’s drug city out there, most of which makes things worse in the long-term. Or it’s, “You’ll have to live with this.”
“Thyroid” is my first love. I would not know what I know or have been able to turn my alopecia around were it not for what I’ve learned the last 10 years focusing primarily on the Hashimoto’s/autoimmunity/hormone health community and writing and publishing my Essential Thyroid Cookbook.
But alopecia is now my life’s work.

I have had alopecia since 2008. Having first tried cortisone injections, Rogaine, and laser treatments, these invasive and painful procedures did not resonate with my belief system of holistic healing. I knew there had to be a better way to address my hair loss and find the root cause of why my body was attacking itself. Upon discovering Jill’s work through a blog post about a year ago, her approach made complete sense to me. I was excited to participate in her Reversing Alopecia online course. I began seeing a small patch of spontaneous regrowth in 2013, but now after completing this course and implementing the steps, my hair is growing faster, stronger, and healthier than it’s been in 10 years and covers about 80% of my head!
The information presented through this course was practical, realistic, thoroughly researched, and structured in a very doable manner, as well as incredibly insightful. Knowing what I know now, I can look back to when my hair loss began and see the triggers that created the environment for autoimmunity to develop. The Reversing Alopecia program gave me a step-by-step approach to address these various factors. It feels good to know that I can help heal my body through nutritious whole foods and supplements, and I sincerely appreciated learning how to nourish myself better. Thank you Jill for sharing your expertise and for your guidance!

Jill, I am overwhelmingly overjoyed at how much information and time and help and passion you have given with this course. Seriously, I want to scream your name from the rooftops. I have a bunch of lashes, a few eyebrows, and random hair in other places, including patches of hair on fingers, toes, arms, and legs (quite a bit on legs) and some hair in the female nether region! I am growing more and more hair daily. It’s unreal. OMG! Thank you so much! I’ve told so many people about you and told alopecians about your next Reversing Alopecia course next spring. I can’t wait to keep updating you. P.S. We love your cookbook!

I would like to say thank you so much for a wonderful and interesting course. Already, my scalp and skin overall looks much less inflamed than before and I also have several small patches of new baby white growing. My overall wellbeing has also improved greatly.
I know you had to overcome a few obstacles but well done for getting to the end. I’m also so grateful for the wealth of information I’ve learned from you. I will use your knowledge greatly through the resources you’ve given me to help me heal my alopecia. It’s been really an eye opener and something my local GP has no knowledge about. I hope maybe one day they know how to treat it the correct way. You have given me the faith and determination to continue this healing journey and put this disease finally into remission. Many thanks again.

Jill Grunewald’s Reversing Alopecia Masterclass has just changed the alopecia community forever!! Her extensive research and knowledge of the many contributing facets involved in autoimmunity is nothing short of incredible! There is finally hope for those of us suffering with alopecia. She has done the exhaustive legwork and lays out a very comprehensive, yet easy to understand framework for restoring hair growth. I am totally amazed at her knowledge and the level of support she gives! This class is a game changer!

I found your Reversing Alopecia series so informative and the Facebook group so supportive. I really appreciate all you put into this. It was amazing. My son has white hairs growing in spots so I am anxious to see what happens.
You provided so many answers to my “whys” and filled in so many gaps that were close but not yet glued together. You have provided “glue” to many holes from my last three years of research and all the different people that he has seen for his alopecia. As I told my friends, it was technology at its greatest between the video modules, question/answers, and Facebook group of people from around the world all offering information and support.

I have been absolutely thrilled with the Reversing Alopecia course and feel quite overwhelmed to finally “meet” someone who is an expert on alopecia. I have been so emotional about having felt so alone on this journey to help my three daughters (one with diffuse alopecia, one with frontal thinning, and a third with no hair loss but other autoimmune tendencies). Jill, thank you for your passion, dedication, and expertise in this area. Your life’s work is having and going to have tremendous impact on so many people. Ok, crying again!

Firstly, I cannot thank Jill enough for her professionalism and capacity to engage!
My alopecia story is similar to many others, until I run into Jill. I started getting bald spots in 2013. And all the dermatologists I contacted (I have changed doctors a least 4 times!) had a similar, very partial approach: pills of cortisone, lotions, injections, etc. etc. The more cortisone I took the faster the hair would grow back and after a few weeks, even much faster the spots would return again, bigger and more numerous! I felt badly; the cortisone was also impacting my general well-being.
It took me 6 years to realize that this was not the right approach for me. I did not feel well at all, and I was still struggling not just with hair loss but more in general with the feeling that I was not listening to my body.
While looking online for a more comprehensive approach, I find Jill’s Reversing Alopecia course. Yes, the course DOES represent a turning point. If you seek a holistic approach to your hair loss, if you are under the impression that no one has taken your feelings and symptoms in serious consideration, if you think you do have some information about possible causes but you are missing the whole picture, if you want someone to support you and give you the right tools, if you feel you can make it but you do not know how, well you are choosing the right course to embark on! And on the top of everything, it is wonderful to be part of a community that can share fears and successes.
I do not have any big spots anymore. It is a process; there is no short and easy answer. But above all, what I am really happy about is that I feel that my body is mine again. And I can listen to it. Your path might be shorter or longer, but this course is surely the right path!

I wasn’t sure if the Reversing Alopecia course was for me. I suffer with diffuse hair loss and have not been diagnosed with alopecia officially. I consider myself fairly educated in natural healing and try to stay up-to-date with advancements in functional medicine and had been researching hair loss for nearly a year, so I wasn’t sure how much I would get out of the class. However, Jill encouraged me to sign up, and I am so glad I did.
Jill is undoubtedly the best (and probably the only) expert out there on this subject. I have been blown away by her level of expertise concerning all things hair loss. She leaves no stone unturned and has an enormous wealth of knowledge when it comes to hair loss causes and solutions. She has done her research and understands the science behind her suggestions. She has eloquently and exhaustively explained the many factors that affect hair loss and has offered solutions—good solutions—for each. Her suggestions are designed to be doable and not turn one’s world upside-down. It is easy to listen to her because she truly understands hair loss, as she has suffered from a severe form of it herself, and has proven that it can be reversed.

Jill is an exceptional practitioner who not only understands the mechanisms that drive hair follicle stimulation but who’s also very compassionate towards the people she works with. I have worked with several functional medicine practitioners since I developed alopecia and none of them understand the condition like Jill does. She knows the science behind all of her recommendations that drive hair growth. I am confident that working with her will reverse my hair loss and I am looking forward to a journey of healing ahead.

Jill’s course provides a thorough understanding of the multiple factors that may impact those suffering from hair loss. It is well researched, detailed, and personal. In addition to teaching face to face, she is committed to answering questions on a daily basis during the course. Even before I took the class, I was inspired by her website and cookbook to discover my food sensitivities. The class has given me a fuller understanding of how to eat and supplement for better hair health. I consider it a template that will help me uncover what is causing my hair loss and then address it. I am already feeling more energetic after eating and do not have nearly as much digestive discomfort. Beyond the health benefits, her class and supporting materials reminded me how fun it is to cook and eat using foods that are really good for me!

I can’t tell you how much I’ve gotten out of this program. Yes, it was often information coming out of a firehose, but embedded in the transcripts and handouts is so much great advice and “if this, then that” guidance on what to try and how to do it… as well as what not to do.

I can’t thank you enough for all the heart you’ve poured into this class. It’s meant the world to me. It’s been exhilarating to see that there are tools to beat this crazy disease. I’m SO GRATEFUL that you are out there. You are an answer to prayer—keep doing the great work you’re doing!!

This was a super informative online course! And I think everybody will agree with me: the most important is that you gave us such a structured approach, so it’s much easier now to navigate in all that information flowing around. Thank you wholeheartedly. You are not only very professional and competent in the field, but also extremely friendly and attentive coach, so it was a big pleasure to participate in the online class series as well as in the FB support group. You helped me to focus and fast-track my personal “inside job” to be done in reversing alopecia. And I look forward to the success stories of all of us!

WOW! Where do I start to THANK YOU? Your program was so worth my time and money! I am highly educated in the functional world as result of my Hashimoto’s diagnosis 3.5 years ago. I work with a functional M.D., but I am constantly providing her updates on what I learn from great coaches like YOU. You have been a GOD SEND. THANKS JILL FOR HELPING SO MANY OF US!!

Jill is incredibly knowledgeable and brings a wealth of experience to dealing with alopecia and autoimmunity. This course has been a deep dive into the science of the body and the complexity of it all in a way that is easy to follow and easily do-able and her commitment to her participants’ wellbeing is palpable. The course has been phenomenal! It’s really taking my knowledge to a much deeper level. I knew the whole autoimmune and alopecia challenge was complex, but this course has really shed (ha, no pun intended) a lot of light!

Jill, it’s been a journey going through these modules with you. I knew deep down in my heart you are the one to listen to. Everything you’ve said so far just validates all my research on alopecia, and how permanently reverse it. Thank you for your dedication and passion on this subject.
