    I am a 54 year old female who has been under a lot of life stress lately – both parents passed away in 2014, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, we are purchasing/selling a home, and my husband will be losing his job. I have been anxious and stressed out, not sleeping well, and losing my hair. I believe that if I could get some relief from the stress, the hair loss would be helped, and I would sleep and feel better. My mind is constantly churning. I would like to try homeopathics as I am on medications for the autoimmune disorder, have recently come off prednisone for the same thing and want to avoid allopathic meds if possible. Can you help recommend something? Thanks!
