A Cure For Baldness?
I am not sure why some families have hair loss issues. Is it all genetics? I am not convince that it is totally genetic, what you eat, and stress are factors in the quality and quantity of your hair.
I do know individuals who have body signals of a low thyroid tend to have thinning hair on the top of their heads, and also thinning outer eyebrows. If you are noticing your hair coming out in clumps, it is probably that you have subpar thyroid function, and the potential to have thinning hair. I have good news; if you receive the correct guidance, the process can be reversed. Yes, you read that right, I just had someone who threw away their hair piece because her hair grew back.
I hear it all the time in the office, “Hey Dr. Bob, my hair is thick again!” Or, “Hey, Dr. Bob, my hair stopped falling out!” It comes down to feeding the body right; hair loss can be a body signal of low thyroid function.
A demographic whose health concerns me is the 18-35 male. When a young man has a diet that is focused on trans fat and they do not consume other types of whole, unrefined oil (olive, flax, and coconut), their hair will suffer. The reason there is an issue with the hair, is hair is not essential for your existence to live-your body will divert the nutrients for hair quality control and use it for functions critical for long-term health, like muscle and bone rebuilding. I would suggest if you are in this demographic, you need to take your health seriously; your body needs a quality source of omega-3, 6, and 9 oils for optimal function including hormone operations. If your endocrine glands are not up to par, your hair will suffer the consequences.
