Female Hair Loss, Weight Gain, Tired and Cold, Hirsutism, emotional dependencyI hope someone who is an expert in homeopathy can help me out. I know a little bit about homeopathy but I just can't understand what's going on. I am 40 years old. I have always suffered from hair loss since I was a teenager, a tendency to be overweight (not obese), very cerebral person, with tendency to hirsutism, emotional dependency (I can't leave a boyfriend even if he's not good for me, I can't stand the idea of being left or separated by him) and not the best of childhoods emotionally. I also suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis but I have self-medicated and I have been rid of symptoms for many months now.
However, I can't seem to stop my hair loss, which has got worse in the last year and it's getting to be a real problem. I have also noticed that I am gaining more weight despite going to the gym every day. My periods are fine, perhaps they tend to come too early all the time (say about every 21 days or sometimes even less). I have been extremely tired all day long and my preferred time to stay awake is the night. I am tired all the time. I don't like sweet things and I crave salty foods, any type. I eat healthily, plenty of salads and whole grains. Where I live there is no homeopath. I hope one of you can give me some indication of what homeopathic remedies I should take, and please tell me about the doses I should go for because I am not too clear as to dosages.
MY MAIN CONCERN IS MY HAIR LOSS but I have given a background to help understand my 'type'. Thank you so much in advance.

This is in the site arthritis-homeopathy . com - they have a section for hair loss under 'other conditions'. Very useful. I hope other readers in my situation find it as useful.

It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE.
As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior.
Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow.
Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:
1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
