Most of us place quite a bit of importance on our hair, whether consciously or unconsciously.
The health of your hair is a reflection of your internal overall health. It's actually an extension of your nervous system so when your hair starts falling out this is a sign that something deeper is going on.
The trickiest part is figuring out why it's falling out in the first place because there are many possible root causes to look at.
Let's dig a little deeper. The most common drivers are:
LOW THYROID FUNCTION - Losing the outer ⅓ of your eyebrows is also a classic sign of hypothyroidism. Other symptoms may include low energy, sluggish digestion, constipation, and always feeling cold. Nutrients that support the thyroid include selenium, iodine, zinc, iron and vitamin D . Deficiencies in any of these nutrients effects the thyroid function.
STRESS (super inflammatory) - Whether emotional, physical, or physiological like gut dysfunctions and heavy metal toxicity can prevent the thyroid from working its best.
NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES - The three big players for healthy hair are iron, b12, and zinc. Make sure you are eating enough protein, is that protein actually being absorbed
(Protein is the building blocks of hair!) What's the state of your gut health?
HORMONE IMBALANCES - Are you experiencing higher levels of testosterone? The hormonal process of testosterone converting to DHT harms the hair follicle and triggers your hair to fall out. Have you been diagnosed with PCOS? Some women with PCOS experience androgenic alopecia which is female pattern hair loss. Are you heading into menopause? Estrogen and progesterone usually lower during this time so testosterone seems to get out of hand.
Taking things like Nettles (HELLO MINERALS) and adding in a collagen to your daily routine like our holi (mane) and holi (youth) can start to get things in check but getting down to the root cause is always the best place to fix the problem where it began.
