Supercharged Yogurt Update: About a Year

Posted by

Hey, friends! I’m on a catching-you-up roll these days! First, the Healthy Challenge last week and now, supercharged yogurt, too? What the???

Simply, these things are still going on and you were so kind to read this blog for a couple of years, so updates are deserved — especially for this (or anything related to my autoimmune condition) and, in particular, for those of you out there who actually tried the supercharged yogurt yourselves.

I know I keep promising pics of my eyebrows, which are the part of my hair loss that seem to be most positively impacted by the supercharged yogurt — or, at least, they’re the quickest to return (though its impact on my eyelashes is pretty quick, too). I should also mention that my eyebrows were one of the last batches to go (first, it was the hair on my head, then my eyelashes, then the brows and then, everything else…and now, more than 20 years after first developing alopecias of all sorts, I have enough all around that I don’t consider myself as having alopecia universalis anymore).

Anyway, back to supercharged yogurt and eyebrow pics.

A couple of times over the last bunch of months, I’ve slacked on keeping up with making the yogurt. No real reason except time, which sounds a bit silly, considering the benefits I get from it and that it really only takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to make (then, there’s several hours of incubating, but that’s when it just sits on the counter). But when life piled up this fall and winter between work and mom care and holiday stuff, I went about a month or so without it.

And, lo and behold, my eyebrows — which had been coming in so well that I couldn’t wait to take a pic but was waiting until the end of December because that would’ve been exactly a year since last year’s photo when I had nothing, absolutely nada for brows — got thinner and even my “beautiful” eyelashes started to go.

Then, I made a couple of batches and in just a couple of weeks, my eyebrows started to fill in again.

And then life got bonkers again and I didn’t make the yogurt and I even ran out of BioGaia Gastrus tablets so I couldn’t just simply take them instead, just to do something in a pinch. And again, my eyebrows thinned out noticeably.

Now, I’m just a few days into a new batch of supercharged yogurt and soon, I’ll take a photo, I promise.

And it’s still the case that, in addition to my eyebrows regrowing, this yogurt makes such a HUGE difference in how I feel overall and especially to how I respond emotionally and physically to stresses in my life. If I hadn’t experienced the on-the-yogurt-and-off-the-yogurt differences myself over the last year or so, I’d think it’s bonkers that someone could attribute so much to it. But I know it to be my experience and thus, in my little world, it’s all true: my digestion’s better, my skin looks better, my nails are better, my joints feel better, my resilience is better, my sleep is better, my perimenopause and pms and periods are better. my eyebrows and eyelashes are on the brink of fabulous.

I’ll keep making the yogurt and we’ll make a date for an eyebrow pic on March 31, truly.

See you then, sunshines!
