WHY HAIR LOSS IS SO COMMON
One of the most common symptoms we see at Origin Healing is hair loss. That’s because when the body is chronically stress, whether emotional or physical, the hair will be sacrificed as the body prioritises other more important aspects of health.
“Identifying and addressing the root causes of hair loss is the best way to reverse this symptom, while supporting the follicles at the scalp”
There are many causes of hair loss, aside from genetics. It can occur due to hormone imbalances, stress or trauma, underlying health problems, such as chronic infections (EBV, CMV, Lyme), as well as challenges on your body caused by a high toxin load. It's important to know the root cause of hair loss so that the problem can be solved from within, while supporting growth at the scalp level.
Some common causes include:
Toxin exposures, such as heavy metals (amalgam teeth fillings) and mold
Acute or chronic emotional or mental stress
Psoriais, fungal infections or dermatitis of the scalp
PCOS (cystic ovaries) which may be due to insulin resistance
Unmanaged thyroid disorders, whether hyper or hypothyroidism
Nutrient deficiencies, which may be causes by gut issues, poor diet or a high toxin load
Excess androgens (male hormones) which can occur in both men and women
An inappropriate diet, which may be inflammatory or lacking nutrients.
The priority is first to identify the root causes and work on solving those, whether it be lifestyle changes, removing toxins, managing stress, improving your diet, or fixing nutrient deficiencies. During this process, there are supplements that can help increase hair growth and reduce loss.
