Are you noticing your hair falling out more than usual in the last couple of weeks? Are you afraid that you are going to lose your hair completely? Perhaps that last dye job did not go as planned.
Well, whatever the reason behind your hair loss, it’s time to put a stop to it right now. And not to worry, there is no need for expensive hair treatments, beauty salons, shampoos, etc. – you can fight hair loss by simply resetting a few hormones!
What could cause your hair loss?
A number of reasons could be causing hair loss, including thyroid problems, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, stress, menopause, immune system problems, Vitamin D deficiency, and so on. However, in most cases, as soon as you get rid of the cause itself, the other symptoms, such as hair fall, stop as well.
What hormones do I need to reset?
How do I reset my hormones?
- Exercise – Start moving to improve your insulin levels, boost your blood flow, and improve both your physical and mental health overall. Exercising will help to stabilize your testosterone levels, which could be the reason for your hair loss, especially in women, when there is excessive testosterone present.
Reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake – Limit yourself to one cup of coffee a day, and one glass of wine or beer once every two-three days to help your estrogen levels stabilize.
Stop smoking – Quit smoking and your whole health, not
only your hair, stands to benefit. The studies are clear; smoking does nothing to improve your health or hair.
Include more antioxidants in your diet – Make sure to include more of the antioxidants rich foods in your diet to help your body manage the oxidative stress that is being produced. Oxidative stress could cause immune system problems, which on their hand can cause hair loss.
Get rid of stress – Make sure that you reduce the stress in your life as much as possible. You can try practicing yoga or meditation to help you fulfill this aim.
- Include more Vitamin D rich foods in your diet – We already mentioned that Vitamin D deficiency could be the cause of your hair loss. Since this is the only vitamin that your body is not able to produce on its own, you will need to make sure that you are in taking the required amounts of Vitamin D for the day. That means eating more fatty fish like salmon and tuna and taking Vitamin D supplements regularly.
Hair loss can be your body’s way of telling you that something else is wrong. As we mentioned earlier, hair loss can be a sign of Vitamin D deficiency, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and so on. Work with your doctor to identify the larger issue and then reset your hormones by improving your lifestyle and getting rid of unhealthy habits to fight hair loss long-term~
