Hair Loss, Baldness Treatment

Hair Loss

For women, thinning hair or hair loss can be a sign of a problem in the gastrointestinal tract. It could be a sign of insufficient stomach acids; It could also mean a deficiency of protein, zinc and other nutrients. Taking two acidophilus tablets after or between meals (four to six tablets per day) for two months will help. 

Diet/Food Therapy 

A wholesome diet, rich in silica, calcium and iron, will help reduce or prevent hair loss. Green, leafy vegetables, especially sea vegetables, are good mineral sources. Raw oats provide silica. Dried fruits and cherry juice are rich sources of iron.

For men, balding process can be slowed down by taking a low-fat diet. Some scientists postulate that the male pattern baldness is tied to increased testosterone levels during puberty. 

A high-fat, meat-based diet raises testosterone levels, and that may adversely affect hair follicles. 
For example, in Japan, male pattern baldness was very rare prior to World War II when the diet was lean and healthy. The Japanese now consume a more fatty, Westernized diet. 

Baldness is now increasing substantially among Japanese men. Eating low-fat foods may not stop hair loss; but it might help slow down the hair loss. 

Anemia is one of the most frequent causes of hair loss. Eat plenty of iron-rich foods, like liver (Avoid if you are pregnant) and other organ meat, whole grain cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, dates, and raisins. 

The hair is comprised mostly of protein. To encourage hair growth, adhere to a diet rich in protein. A recommended diet for this purpose includes calves liver, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, and two tablespoons of granulated lecithin. 

Along with protein, these foods are also high in B vitamins, an important nutrient for hair. European studies have found that soy protein reinforces hair and stimulates its growth. In one study, The hair growth increased by 15 percent. Tofu and soy milk are good sources of soy protein. 

Other good sources of protein are: low-fat cheese, eggs, fish, beans, brewer's yeast and yogurt. Another important nutrient for hair health is silica. 

Studies in the former Soviet Union have shown that silica therapy slowed hair loss. Organic silica added to shampoo was found to help prevent baldness, stimulate healthier hair growth and assure beautiful shine, luster and strength. 

Some scientists claim that they have effectively stopped further hair loss by adding silica to their shampoo. This can be applied externally to regrow already lost hair. 

Silica is found in the outer coverings of potatoes, green and red peppers and cucumbers. Bean sprouts are also high in silica. Eat whole foods including sprouts. Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron. Include a good serving of fruits and vegetables in your diet. Vitamin E is important for healthy hair growth. Eat avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil on a regular basis. 

If hair loss is due to thyroid dysfunction, eat more foods rich in vitamin A and iodine. Eat vegetables such as carrots or spinach in unrefined, cold-pressed seed oils such as flax, walnut or pumpkin seed and sea salt. 

Take turnips, cabbage, mustard, soy beans, peanuts, pine nuts and millet if there is a deficiency of iodine. Caution: Excessive intake of Vitamin A can cause hair loss.

Micro algae Vegetables Beans Whole grains Nuts and seeds Leafy, green vegetables.

Massage 

Massage improves circulation, which in turn improves the health of your hair and scalp. A few drops of vitamin E oil massaged into the scalp is recommended to strengthen fragile hair and help prevent dry, flaky skin. 

Give yourself a daily massage for 5-10 minutes to stimulate circulation, which is vital for healthy hair growth. Using your fingers (knuckles), work over the surface of the scalp, temples and back of the head, applying pressure in circular movements. 

Yoga exercises such as headstand is another excellent way of stimulating blood flow to the hair follicles. 

To relieve tension in the scalp and to promote healthy looking hair, try this Indonesian massage technique:

  • Stand with your feet apart and slowly breathe in and out. 
    Gently lean forward from waist, curving your spine, until your head is just below waist level. 
  • Keeping your legs straight, gently rap your scalp all over with your knuckles for half a minute. 
  • Slowly raise your body and repeat the rapping in an upright position. Neck Exercises. 
  • Turn your head to the left 3 times 
  • Now turn your head to the right 3 times Lift the head up 3 times Move it down toward your chest 3 times 
  • Roll your head gently in a circle 3 times in each direction.
  • Hair tugging, bend your head forward. 
  • Grasp a hank of hair close to scalp. 
  • Tug hard, relax your grip, then tug again. 
  • Repeat the procedure three times. 
  • Repeat all over scalp, to stimulate new, thicker growth, concentrating on any thinning areas, such as the sides of the forehead.
