Reversing alopecia is possible. It’s an inside job.
The journey can not only help you regrow hair, but it can transform your health—and your life. Why? Because we’re healing from the inside.
Have you “tried everything?” So have most of my clients and course participants.
In my Reversing Alopecia Masterclass Series, I’m going to share with you the exact same information that I’ve used myself to go from 1/3 bald to getting my thick curls back and also the information that I’ve used to help my private coaching clients, including this young woman.
NOTE: Feel free to read this page, but the Reversing Alopecia course is now closed for enrollment. It will reopen in early 2020. You can read testimonials from my prior participants here.

The solution isn’t in a pill, potion, cream, a single bottle of supplements, or another round of shots. There’s another way.
Hi, I’m Jill. I’ve had alopecia, off and on, for 35 years. I started with mild alopecia areata (age 13) and for over 30 years, my intermittent spots always grew back quickly. Things changed drastically in my 40s—I developed alopecia ophiasis and became 1/3 bald.
NOTHING was happening—except more loss. The photo on the right doesn’t show the worst of the worst; it was after my ophiasis pattern has started to grow in a little. >>>
With a lot of obsessive research, asking ‘why, why, why?,’ trial and error, and a determination to not go bald (although I was already looking at a
platinum blonde pixie wig), I turned it
around, got my curls back, and have had
no inordinate loss for well over two years.
And for over five years, I’ve been helping clients from around the world do the same. So yes, things were getting worse for me as I was helping others grow hair. But it has all turned around.
This is me, March and June 2018, respectively (with Dr. Deanna Minich). >>>
This is me, March 2019. In other words, I’ve KEPT my hair. (I get a lot of questions about whether my regrowth has “stuck.”) >>
Do I offer promises or false hopes? No.
Do I claim that my approach will help everyone with alopecia? No.*
Do I attempt to take the place of a medical provider? No.
* Although I would never make promises and false claims, I believe that most any form of alopecia can be reversed. But I don’t have solutions for those with cicatricial (scarring) alopecia or men with male pattern baldness.
Please know this:
- There’s no one answer—no one-size-fits-all approach.
- There’s no silver bullet or magic wand.
- If you want this, you have to take the long view.
- Growth takes time. Results won’t happen overnight. Or next week. (Be sure to read the FAQs at the end of this page.)
- Alopecia isn’t always strictly an autoimmune condition. There’s almost always a hormonal component, even for those with autoimmune hair loss and especially for those with androgenic alopecia. And/or there’s an infectious component.
- Alopecia is one of the most unpredictable conditions—both the loss and the regrowth can be sporadic.
- Things aren’t perfect for some of my clients, but they’re overjoyed with their success—some have gone from a wig to no wig and others have seen the majority of their spots fill in. (See testimonials at the bottom of this page and see what last year’s participants had to say here.)
- As I learned the hard way, alopecia is multi-factorial. There are just as many considerations in reversing alopecia as there are forms of alopecia (areata, diffusa, totalsis, universalis, etc).
According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, “In all forms of alopecia, the hair follicles remain alive and are ready to resume normal hair production whenever they receive the appropriate signal.”
Only until each of these factors is considered (and then addressed) will the follicles become available for re-signaling and people see lasting improvement. Otherwise, it’s a game of whack-a-mole: the practice of repeatedly getting rid of something, only to have more of that thing appear.
Last summer, in talking about my alopecia journey, the esteemed Greg Plotnikoff, MD, (who has helped me on this journey) gave me one of the best compliments of my life (and career), saying, “I appreciate your highly scientific mind.” At the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Annual Conference, he introduced me to another prominent doctor as “the preeminent expert on alopecia.”
As for the rest of the medical community, many have shoved questionable, ineffective, and in some cases, downright dangerous “treatments” at alopecia sufferers for decades. (Please don’t get me started on immunosuppressive drugs and the concerns around corticosteroid injections.)
Many of these treatments are DEgenerative, not REgenerative, making things worse in the long term.
Additionally, the “hair restoration” community has also offered a lot of false promises with expensive procedures and creams that don’t work—and what’s worse, don’t get to the root (no pun intended) of the problem.
I spent a healthy five figures figuring out how to do this. Many of my clients and course participants have also spent five figures on various treatments, procedures, and false claims. And wigs.
I can’t make promises to anyone, of course, but I can show you what I’ve done and what has worked for many others. I can save you time and heartache.

From Trina Cameron, the mother of Claire, the girl in the above-mentioned Experience Life magazine story:
Announcing, my Reversing Alopecia Masterclass Series…
I’m thrilled to announce my online masterclass series specifically for the alopecia community is open. This one-of-a-kind—first of its kind—6-week health course will transform your relationship with yourself.
This is NOT just another “hair restoration” scheme or gimmick. You can get those anywhere. This is about lifestyle medicine with a laser focus on hair follicle signaling.
Classes (Zoom video) will be held live at 7:30pm Central Time.
Again, enrollment is currently closed and will reopen Fall of 2019 or Spring of 2020.
Module #1: TBD
Module #2: TBD
Module #3: TBD
Module #4: TBD
Module #5: TBD
Module #6: TBD
You can participate from anywhere, at any time, as everything will be recorded—and transcribed.
Each class will go about 1.25 hours, with roughly 15 min. of Q&A at the end.
Included in your enrollment:
- A library of handouts and guides to accompany each module, to keep you on track and moving forward even after the series is over
- The “motherlode” Alopecia Labs Guide, sent immediately after enrollment, so that you can get going on some testing right away, should you choose to (NOTE: Although we’ll talk more about everything in the course, I cannot provide personalized guidance or email support related to this guide. If you have questions, they’ll likely get addressed in the course.)
- A secret Facebook group with support from me, including regular check-in times and twice-weekly, real time “office hours” where you can ask me your most pressing questions (You’ll be joining our existing group—a highly supportive community of some of last year’s participants who are excited to see (and support) some newcomers. Also, all Q&A sessions will be recorded and sent to ALL course participants, whether you’re in the Facebook group or not.)
- A 15% discount on suggested supplements through Fullscript, the safest source for practitioner-grade supplements (U.S. only, but if you’re in Canada, I have a resource/colleague who can set you up with a Canadian account)
- For those who don’t yet have it, a discount on my #1 best selling Essential Thyroid Cookbook (I will explain more, but there are a LOT of nutrients that support both the thyroid and the hair follicles. That catching two butterflies with one net thing.)
I understand that some people may need deeper support or some individualized guidance. This could be one conversation or it could be a series of sessions.
- Option for private coaching at a discount, depending on scheduling/availability (starts in June)
From my hair stylist, Becky Zea:
I’m so confident that this class series is going to help you think about alopecia differently and give you the much-needed hope that it can be reversed, I’m offering a guarantee. Remember, signaling the hair follicles takes time. But if, prior to the second class, you’re thinking, “Yeah, this just isn’t for me. It’s not helpful—it’s not giving me any hope that I can get my hair back and it’s not helping me think about my life and my wellbeing in a different way,” I’ll give you a 100% refund, no questions asked.
This can all be possible for you, too! (Again, testimonials from last year’s participants can be found here.)
From some of my 1-1 private coaching clients…
I was suffering from alopecia areata and had multiple bald spots. I turned to cortisone injections to regrow the hair, which helped somewhat but was affected my long-term health. Because of my program with Jill, my bald spots are fully growing hair on their own without the injections, which is sort of like a miracle after having alopecia for 6+ years! Jill’s program WORKS! Patience is key and it will all pay off. Trust the process and if you stick with your new lifestyle, you will see results. Listen to Jill. —Lauren P., San Francisco, CA
I was doing a lot of the “right” things before starting my program with Jill, but I wasn’t seeing any regrowth. My work with her has been a tipping point because she was able to tie it all together and help me know what was missing and how to sequence things. Within six weeks of starting Jill’s program, I had stubble over most of my head. In the coming weeks, I will look like I have a pixie cut. —Ann N., Colorado Springs, CO
My son developed alopecia areata two years ago. We tried everything to get his hair to grow back. After working with Jill, his stubborn spots are now filled in. —Trudy Messner, Chicago, IL
You are the person to teach us about alopecia. You have a personal, physical, emotional stake in the topic. This isn’t theory for you, it’s real. Here’s the hope I have to offer…my daughter lost her hair completely 3.5 years ago. We started working with you and her hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes grew back. Her hair is now past her shoulders and healthy. She has started to lose hair 2 or 3 times over the last year (I am convinced due to stress). BUT…nowhere near the amount of hair that has fallen out before. If we had not [followed your program], I don’t know if her body would have been strong enough to hang on to the hair. You helped us reduce the internal inflammation so her body could handle the stress. We are continuing to work on reducing her cortisol by increasing her ability to cope with stress. Where would we be without you? Maybe bald again. But we’re not. —Trina Cameron, Nashville, TN
I spent five figures over the course of three years trying to resolve my alopecia. I saw several specialists around the country and everyone sounded totally clueless about the real causes of alopecia, promised me some miracle solution (none of which worked), wanted me to take cancer-causing immunosuppressants, or were just throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what would stick. No one—no one—knows alopecia like Jill. After being a chrome dome for a few years, I now have hair over most of my head. Things aren’t quite perfect for me yet, but man, I’ll take what I’ve got and I’m confident the rest will come in time. —Rick Stone, Atlanta, GA
I’ve struggled with adrenal fatigue, PCOS, pre-diabetes, hypothyroidism, digestive concerns, and food allergies for most of my teens and twenties. Along with these issues, by age 27, (I’m 28 now) I had lost about a third of my hair. I worked with Jill and with her help was able to make some key changes in my health, which allowed me for the first time to see new hair growth since age 13 when my hair loss started. I have a long ways to go but I haven’t met anyone so far who is a holistic alopecia expert. I’m grateful to have a go-to person who is focused on alopecia. I went from being devastated and depressed all the time to having hope when I saw those little sprouts of hair fill in last year…I remain hopeful that I can have a head full of thick hair as I continue to heal from the inside out. —Mariya J., St. Paul, MN
My hair was constantly on my mind, or rather, my lack of hair and how quickly it was continuing to fall out. Since working with Jill, my hair loss has not only decreased, but has started to fill back in! I cannot express enough gratitude to Jill for the work she does. —Nicole Hoines, Langford, SD
As soon we started working with Jill, [my daughter’s] eyebrows started growing back. She now has good re-growth on the front of her hair as well and a few very tiny patches at the base of her hairline. —Michelle Sargent, Brisbane, Australia
I really thought I was going bald and starting thinking about what style of wig I would wear. Within a month of starting with Jill, I was losing so much less hair. Then, I started growing hair. Not only do I feel like this situation has totally healed and stabilized, but also the texture of my hair is so much better, better than it’s been for years. I’m finally getting my hair back and I know what to do to keep this from happening again. —Megan Schultz, Los Angeles, CA
Frequently Asked Questions:
How long will it take for me to see results?
It depends. Again, alopecia is multi-factorial and depending on each person’s factors and also the extent of the imbalance within each of these factors, the time to see results will vary. I’ve had clients start to see eyelash and eyebrow sprouts in 4 weeks. Scalp hair takes longer—it typically takes 3-4 months minimum to start seeing scalp sprouts (although I’ve seen it start to happen in 6 weeks). For some, it may take less time, for others, it will take longer. About the 6-month mark was sort of a magical time for many of last year’s participants.
The length of this course is only 6 weeks. The majority of people will NOT see significant hair improvements during this time—although what you can expect during our time together is improved digestion, clearer skin, better sleep, brighter mood, more energy, improved menstrual cycles, less anxiety, and weight loss (if you’re looking to lose weight).
My job is to give you the tools and resources for holistic/natural follicle stimulation and your job is to take the information and run with it, and then let things ride, with the hopes of seeing at least some scalp growth in a few months.
Will you cover androgenic alopecia?
Yes. (You can read more about androgenic alopecia here.)
Will you cover diffuse loss?
Yes. (You can read more about alopecia diffusa here.)
I don’t have an official diagnosis. Will this help me?
Do you offer a guarantee of results?
If anyone in the health/wellness arena ever offers you a guarantee of results, run the other direction. I’m providing the information and given that we won’t be in a coach/client relationship, it’s up to you to implement to the best of your ability. There’s absolutely no way for me to know if people actually do that. Plus, everyone is unique and will have unique experiences and outcomes.
Can I share my enrollment with a friend?
Please don’t. I’m offering this masterclass and all of the great content at an affordable price so that it’s easy for most anyone to access. Please respect my (copyrighted) work and my integrity (and yours) and do not share your enrollment or the class materials with anyone.
How long do we have access to the course?
Forever. In perpetuity. The links won’t expire and you’ll always have access to the handouts/resources. But please don’t share my copyrighted materials. See prior question.
I’m a healthcare practitioner. Can I use your materials from this course and teach this information on my own?
I’ve had several practitioners ask me this and the answer is, um, no. Not without credit to me. That would be plagiarism, which is defined as “the act of using another person’s words or ideas without giving credit to that person.”
I don’t want to sound like a curmudgeon, but alopecia is now my life’s work. I’ve spent a few years and a 5-figure sum learning how to get things right—and turning around and teaching these learnings. Please do right by yourself and me by not adopting my work as your own. The information in this course can influence your work, but you cannot copy my work. That said, I’m thrilled to have other healthcare practitioners in this course—I’m flattered that even those without alopecia are interested in learning from me!
I don’t live in the U.S.—can I still participate?
Yes! You can participate from anywhere. All classes will be recorded (video + transcript) and will be emailed to you with the accompanying handouts/guides. You can refer to all of the materials at any time.
Will I receive a hard copy of any content?
No. All content is digital and again, you can access it anytime. You’re welcome to download and print anything you wish to.
Do you offer refunds?
Because this is a digital series with recordings and downloadable content, I do not offer refunds, with the exception of the above-mentioned guarantee that if you’re not happy after the first module, I’ll give you a 100% refund.
Will this be the same information as what you use in your private coaching practice?
Absolutely. I’m putting my heart and soul into this course and I’m leaving nothing out.
I’m breastfeeding. Can I take this course?
I would wait. I had a couple of women in last year’s series who were breastfeeding and did the course with the guidance of their doctor, with the goal of implementing some things after they were done with breastfeeding. While somewhat reasonable, I would wait so that you can absorb and implement everything in the sequenced way that I’ll present it.
Do you have any clients for whom this has not worked?
I’ve had clients who couldn’t adhere to the suggested changes for various reasons—a limited belief system, not feeling “deserving” of healing, “falling off the wagon,” lack of engagement, or just unfortunate timing in life, which is entirely understandable. That said, many of my clients and course participants have been pleasantly surprised that the dietary changes that I suggest aren’t as restrictive as you think they might be.
And it’s not all about diet, for sure. In fact, for some, they’ve found an infectious component to their alopecia and it can take some time to resolve infections. Many have said things like, “Had I not taken this course, I’d likely never have known I have this infection.” (This is huge.)
For the clients who went “all in,” many have seen growth for the first time in many years. If they haven’t, they’re encouraged by what’s happening with others, they’re continuing the work, they’re extremely optimistic, and they BELIEVE that success is coming their way. (If you enroll and join our secret Facebook group, you’ll see a lot of these kinds of comments.) I believe that they’ll see regrowth soon too; I think it’s just a matter of time before they say, “I see hair!.” I’m not saying I’m a magic-maker—this takes work. They did the work.
What is the main difference between this course and your private coaching practice?
The main differentiator is targeted personalization. There’s no way that the course can be personalized, as much as I would love to help everyone to the nth degree. For instance, I can’t do any type of coordinated care with other healthcare providers, look at labs, or discuss health histories, although there can be some “surface” discussion of these things in our Facebook group. There can be nuance to any therapeutic program and I can dig into that nuance with my clients, but not in a group setting.
I can perform these things in the context of a private coaching relationship, which as a participant of this course, you’ll get a discount on (mini program), should you need more individualized guidance. More details at the end of the course.
