Mysterious Disfiguring Disorder Responsible For Hair Loss in Over 11 Million American Women
Date:10/28/2008

New approach to stop compulsive hair pulling breaks new ground in battle against Trichotillomania.

Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) October 28, 2008 -- One day Tina, a 36 year-old mother of three noticed a quarter-sized bald spot just above her daughter's right ear. A few days later she saw her child pull out a number of eyelashes. Their pediatrician assured Tina that children often do things that seem strange to adults but Tina felt tremendous despair. It turned out that Tina has been doing the same thing to herself since the age of nine. Tina joined a new online trichotillomania program to learn how to stop her own hair pulling and help her child.

Up to 17 million Americans struggle with Trichotillomania, a great majority of whom are female. Many are compulsively driven to pull their hair out for hours each day. As a result, a great number of hair pulling women suffer in silent shame, living a painful lie and hiding their torment even from loved ones. To date, there is neither a medical cure to stop hair pulling, nor a clear scientific understanding of its causes. However, Abby Rohrer has discovered practical answers to why so many begin to pull their hair out and go on to become long-term, even life-long hair pullers. Trichotillomania is a one of the top reasons for hair loss in women.

Abby Leora Rohrer has released TrichotillomaniaFree Women's University (TFWU), a unique solution for sufferers to resolve the emotional and physical ravages of long-term compulsive hair pulling. The online curriculum is paired with an innovative support system and is only for hair pulling women.

TFWU teaches students how to heal the underlying cultural, environmental, and emotional factors that contribute to and result from Trichotillomania. It offers real answers for long-term hair pullers to finally end their self-destructive patterns. With this program, Rohrer provides students with the same strategy that she used in 1994 to end her own long-standing hair pulling problem.

The full curriculum, filled with a wealth of information and advice in print and audio lessons, is 32 weeks from start to finish. Some students have been able to heal in as little as 6-8 weeks. Rohrer is regularly in the online University answering questions and facilitates frequent telephone discussions with students.

Alongside the curriculum, Abby Rohrer has also developed a unique support community empowering hair pulling women a path to deep and lasting freedom within a circle of acceptance. This community does not focus on suffering or living with trichotillomania, but instead offers the roadmap to move beyond it.

"The University brings together women from all over the world who struggle with hair pulling. It gives us a voice, a story and a way of communicating that is nonjudgmental or critical," said Tina. "I was never afraid to go deep into healing, because I knew that my words would be met with grace and love. After watching the 20/20 show on Trichotillomania, it made me sad that those women had lost hope in getting better."

Some who have ended hair pulling have stayed in the University to help others and work on additional life issues. Rohrer knows, and students have found, that healing hair pulling in this way leads to healing in many other areas of life, including improved relationships with partners, family, and coworkers, and resolving other painful habits and personal problems.

"With wisdom and insight, Abby Rohrer tells the true inner tale of the hair pulling compulsion," says Mary Zesiewica, MD. "Rohrer's insights into hair pulling as an issue of relationship will empower so many who struggle desperately for freedom and for hope... and provides real skills and tools for hair pullers to deal more effectively with their feelings, heal and move forward to live wonderful lives full of meaning and joy!" -- Mary F. Zesiewicz, MD, Board Certified Psychiatrist, Adult, Adolescent, Child Psychiatry.

Abby Leora Rohrer is the author of 'What's Wrong With Pulling My Hair Out?', 'Why Won't My Child Stop Hair Pulling?', the developer of the Pull-Free, At Last! System, and the online visit TrichotillomaniaFree Women's University.
