Everyone wants to have strong and healthy hair but there is more to it. The health of your hair is showing if there is an issue in your body as it reacts to every change of the inner balance. Hormonal problems, digestive issues, stress and emotional imbalances will affect your hair and will change the appearance, the thickness and the scalp of the head. That is why it is very important to observe the condition of the hair and to know how to support its health from the inside out, not relying so much on hair products for external use.
Why are we losing hair?
The main thing about hair is that it is not crucial for the survival of the body, so there would be no priority to it if the major organs like the heart or the lungs need support or healing. There is a limited energy in the body and it has to be organized in such a way that it covers all its needs to maintain life. When there is constant stress or a chronic disease, for example, most of the energy resources of the body are spent on dealing with the consequences of the health condition.
Which means that if you are experiencing stress, your body will have to give priority to some functions and put others on hold. Hair growth is one of the things that is affected by stress shortly after the situation itself as all the energy is redirected to the more important organs and systems. If you experience a long term stress, then the reproductive hormones would be affected too as in times of stress and malnutrition, the reproduction is put on hold.
There are certain hormones which are linked to the health of the hair. High levels of prolactin will induce hair loss, and high levels of estrogen will cause the prolactin to increase. Low thyroid function can also result in hair loss and bad hair health like dryness and breakage. And the low thyroid hormone production is usually going together with high estrogen.
How to Improve Your Hair Health and to Avoid Hair Loss?
You will need to restore the hormonal balance in your body, change your diet, maybe even take some supplements like zinc and vitamins B. It is highly recommended to include cold laser therapy as a complementary treatment or to use it as a main healing strategy. The laser will provide an additional energy source to your body which can be used for healing and regeneration. Here are some of the things which you can do in order to support your hair from the inside out.
1.Manage your stress
The stress hormones like cortisol, adrenaline, etc., are a priority for your body as they are produced to help you get out of the stressful situation. Or that is how it used to be. Nowadays, research shows that an average woman experiences 50 to 100 stress reactions in a single day and that is affecting her hormonal balance. It is well known that hair reacts very quickly to excessive stress and the next morning you wake up with dry, breaking and falling hair, or you find new white hairs. Stress is affecting the blood vessels of the scalp and they literally shrink which causes falling hair and dryness. How to manage your stress? First of all, work on your perception and observe your reaction to the stressful situation. Then you will need to cut off stimulants like caffeine and calm down your nervous system. Cold lasers are a great non-invasive option to medications and can be used to support both your nervous system and the major organs in your body.
2.Support your reproductive and thyroid hormones production
Falling hair is linked to low thyroid hormones, high prolactin and estrogen, low progesterone and high levels of cortisol. So, it is very often a sign for a hormonal imbalance that is unaddressed. Restoring the hormonal balance will take time as it is a very complicated inner system of chemicals and connections. If you feel that your body has its own intelligence and that it knows how to stay healthy, the best way is to support its own healing. That is why you need to be very careful with hormone replacement therapies of any kind as you can hardly manage all these processes. That is why cold laser therapies like coMra are more and more recommended, they provide the missing energy for the body to heal itself. You can start with Universal treatment protocol 5 which is good for the nervous system too, then apply the Hypothyroidism treatment protocol if needed.
3.Maintain healthy blood sugar levels
Whenever you eat something, your blood sugar levels will rise but if you eat a great amount of sugar all at once, your blood sugar will rise so quickly that it will need an insulin spike too in order to fix it. These insulin spikes are very dangerous, especially if you suffer from hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, etc. The glucose levels in your blood are connected to the stress hormones, the health of the liver and the pancreas, your blood pressure …you name it – they affect the whole body as glucose is the fuel for the cell and its metabolism is crucial. Including more fruits in your diet will help you minimize the quantity of refined sugar.
4.Support your liver
An organ responsible for so many things in your body, your liver deserves special attention. The health of your hair also depends on its work as if all these toxins remain unprocessed, it will show. How to support your liver? Eat enough quality protein as that will help the elimination of the excessive estrogen from the body, consume alcohol moderately or avoid it, limit the amount of refined sugar in your diet, work with your emotions. Yes, the liver is affected by emotions like fear and anger, so containing your emotions will support its function as good as cutting off all the processed foods. Use coMra cold lasers directly on the liver on 5Hz for ten to twenty minutes every evening, before going to bed, for two weeks. This will improve your metabolism and can help with weight loss if the glucose is not stored in the body in the form of fat cells. Add more vitamins B to your diet or take them as supplements and eat raw carrots daily to support estrogen elimination.
5.Improve your gut health
A major part of digestion is happening in the gut and if there is a problem it will affect the whole body. If you experience gut problems for some time, your hair will be dry, dull and thinning. Have you heard of the gut brain? Yes, there are nerve cells in your gut and any issue there will show in your emotions and energy levels. This is the link to the stress reactions, poor gut health might even cause anxiety or depression.
