Q: OMG, I'm losing my hair. What is going on?
Here's the Answer
First let me say, I can totally relate. I had significant hair loss when I suffered post-traumatic stress. When we are stressed, cortisol (our stress hormone) rises, and that increases the conversion of our testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a powerful male sex hormone that leads to male pattern hair loss.
Other causes of hair loss include thyroid and hormonal issues, nutritional deficiency, and fungal infections.
I recommend Mighty Maca® Plus, my delicious green drink that is rich with nutrients and anti-inflammatory superfoods.
A trial of progesterone can also help (think of how lush pregnancy hair can be), so I recommend Balance Cream, a bioidentical progesterone to protect hormonal balance, along with Bright & Beautiful formula, a supportive supplement rich in zinc, copper, selenium, chromium, niacin, biotin and vitamin B6.
The good news is your hair can grow back. Mine certainly did, using these simple solutions.
