Ashley Fraser, 29, had literally pulled her hair out since the age of two.
Her parents tried psychiatry, medication, hypnosis, behavior therapy and a host of other treatments to help their daughter stop her destructive behavior. Nothing worked until she came across a new healing model created by former 27-year hairpuller, Abby L. Rohrer.
Today, with the help of Ms. Rohrer's self-healing model, Ashley is finally "pull-free" and knows she is finished with the affliction forever thanks to the self-healing model detailed in Rohrer's new book "What's Wrong with Pulling My Hair Out?"
Long-time sufferers of Trichotillomania, a compulsive hair-pulling disorder, are finding hope, answers and guidance for healing their hair-pulling impulses in "What's Wrong with Pulling My Hair Out?" written by Ms. Rohrer, an educational consultant and self-healing mentor.
As many as 11 million Americans are estimated to have Trichotillomania. People who suffer from the disorder are driven to pull hair from their scalps, eyelashes, eyebrows or other parts of their bodies.
Many sufferers hide signs of their affliction by covering affected areas of the body with wigs, makeup, hats or clothing. As a result, hair-pullers often also suffer from silent shame.
"Abby Rohrer presents a passionate yet reasoned attempt to lead those plagued by addictive behavior to the only place where real recovery is possible: inside themselves," says UCLA School of Medicine Associate Research Professor of Psychiatry and author (Brainlock) Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, an international authority on obsessive-compulsive
"What's Wrong with Pulling My Hair Out?" explores the cultural, personal, psychological and spiritual factors that contribute to Trichotillomania, and offers step-by-step lessons that address these issues and guide readers to permanently heal the self-destructive patterns characteristic of hair-pullers.
This is the first resource of its kind that takes a comprehensive holistic approach to address and heal this disorder.
