Hair loss is one of the most frustrating symptoms a woman can deal with in her life. Our hair is such an important part of how we express our personality and femininity. And when our hair starts to shed for what seems to be no apparent reason, this creates so much heartache and stress.
To make things worse, it’s difficult to find a clear cause of hair loss, which makes it seem nearly impossible to find the solution. The truth is, there can be a number of causes and therefore, a number of solutions. After all, each person has a unique set of genes, hormonal imbalances, deficiencies, and surroundings. Where you live and what you eat can actually lead to one of the environmental reasons your hair is falling out.
Hair loss is a signal to us that there’s an internal imbalance.
Topical remedies are temporary Band-Aids to your frustration.
You need to focus on resolving the underlying causes.
The causes of hair loss can be divided into four main categories:
- Micronutrient Deficiencies
Environmental toxins such as mecury, lead, arsenic and cadmium can also contribute to hair loss. In cases of chronic poisoning, when the toxin is ingested in small doses over a long period of time, hair loss is a common symptom. And it wreaks havoc on your gut causing inflammation, better known as Leaky Gut. If you think you don’t have any toxins because you eat a “clean diet”, think again. Every one of us has some degree of heavy metal toxicity, but it’s when ‘your cup runneth over’ is when your body’s tolerance for the toxins has reached it’s maximum limit. Eliminating the toxins while Healing your Gut is a vital first step.
If you have ever lived in a highly polluted area such as by the airport or any highway, if you have a history of low stomach acid, if you have mercury fillings, if you’ve eaten a lot of tuna or other high mercury fish in the past; then you may be dealing with heavy metal toxicity.
