Female hair loss is increasingly complicated and difficult to overcome because a general decline in our overall health. The condition of our hair is intimately connected to our physical and emotional well-being. When we’re not good our hair will suffer. It can become dry and brittle, dull and lifeless, or tangled and unmanageable. May lose color and shine … and worst of all, can start fall in clumps or with his fist.
Female hair disorders are increasing because you experience optimal health and may not even be aware of it. Many people believe that it is good, when they are not. This is because they have forgotten (or never knew) true well-being. A healthy woman awakens refreshed and rejuvenated after a deep relaxing sleep. It has a large energy to carry it all day. She is lively, happy, enthusiastic and has a taste for life. The mind is clear and sharp. Maintains the normal weight, is free of pain and illness and does not rely on medications. Based on this description, not many of us qualify.
In today’s society it takes a little effort to achieve and maintain optimal health. We are exposed to an increasing amount of toxins in our food supply and our environment. These toxins disturb the normal functioning of the endocrine system, immune system, digestive and nervous system creating many of the diseases that can lead to hair loss. These include thyroid conditions, autoimmune disorders, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, nutritional deficiencies, etc.
Much of our health begins with our diet. Modern-day diets of processed and packaged foods are highly inflammatory, creating chronic inflammation low systemic levels. This is a dangerous condition that creates health problems in many areas. Inflammation is involved in most, if not all hair loss conditions. Inflammation puts a huge strain on the immune system and digestive system.
Even though we are consuming more than enough calories, many of us are starving, how the foods we eat are nutritionally scattered. With impaired digestion, our bodies can lose the ability to absorb and use what little nourishment that we take, resulting in more deficiencies that lead to most health disorders. Maybe that’s why it is becoming increasingly common for women to deal with more than one type of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia and telogen effluvium.
Instead of restoring optimal health through good nutrition and healthy lifestyle, drugs are often blindly accepted as the best and only solution. People sometimes mistakenly believe that if they are on a drug that “controls” a certain health problem that they no longer have that problem. The problem is still there it is just masked by medication.
It’s becoming more common for people to be more drugs for a variety of physical and emotional problems. In the past, the requirements were more often used in the short term while the emphasis involved the healing of the underlying disease. Now they are also used for long-term and permanent.
Drugs can lead to or cause shedding and thinning in many people. Some drugs cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that can lead to hair loss. Although hair loss drug-induced is very common, many people are not aware of this fact when the prescription is delivered.
Maybe it’s partly due to the availability and accessibility of medication as a society that we seem to be developing a more casual attitude to the disease. Slowly we started accepting and including many of the diseases, disorders or imbalances that are now so prevalent.
When an imbalance occurs in an area, other areas are affected. Any imbalance can cause hair loss. Now more than ever we have multiple layers of dysfunctional health. In order to restore the growth of healthy hair and really overcome a problem of hair loss, we must heal each layer of dysfunctional health, all the way down the deepest.
For example, it is well known that iron deficiency can cause hair loss. When it is discovered a deficiency assumes that iron supplementation can cure the problem. But the iron deficiency may be a symptom of another disorder such as gluten intolerance. If it was determined the gluten intolerance, it is likely that there are other nutritional deficiencies. These would need to be identified and addressed as well.
