Natural Solutions, Remedies & Treatments For Thinning Hair

Jan 7, 2008
A major tell-tale sign of inadequate nutritional intake or delivery and hormonal imbalance is the appearance of thinning hair. You can use a wig, but that's only a temporary solution and will only make matters worse because there will be a decrease in circulation of fresh air to the area. Scarfs are a good temporary cover up, but let's get to the real, permanent solutions.

One of the most important factors is abundant exercise. Good circulation is necessary to get both nutrients and oxygen to feed the scalp and the hair. Nutrients that help your circulation by keeping arteries open include antioxidants and essential fatty acids, along with Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid. The B vitamins help build your red blood cells for better oxygen and nutrition delivery.

The recommended dose for Vitamin B6 is 10 - 200 mg. Foods rich in B6 are brown rice, bananas, soybeans, nuts, milk, green veggies, and unsulphured molasses.

The Vitamin B12 recommended dose is 50 - 50,000 mcg. Great sources of this vitamin are yogurt, chicken, and sea vegetables.

Taking 400 - 800 mcg of folic acid is the recommended dose. Vitamins B12 and C help absorption. Spinach, asparagus, broccoli, and wholegrains contain folic acid.

A good supplement to take is garlic with parsley at 500 mg, 3 times a day. The garlic improves circulation and the parsley deoderizes internally to prevent a garlicky smell from developing.

Hair is made up of 98% protein. An adequate intake of lean fish, chicken, and Omega-3 enriched eggs is necessary. But, if you have less than optimal digestion your body may not be absorbing enough protein. Pepsin and hydrochloric acid supplements will help with the breakdown and absorption of protein. You should take a recommended 1 or 2 capsules with high protein meals.

Another possible solution is the supplement sulfur. Persons on low fat diets tend to lack the right amount of sulfur. This can lead to hair loss. Take up to 5 grams of sulfur in supplement form and intake sulfur-rich foods such as eggs and meats.

Biotin is an excellent supplement for helping to stop hair from thinning out. A dose of 2 - 5 mg is recommended for optimal hair nutrition. Tuna, peanuts, whole brown rice, and peas all contain biotin.

For luxurious and shiny hair you should intake silicon. Oats, avocados, sunflower seeds and honey contain silicon. For a full effect, take an infusion of dry horsetail herb.

Many women use natural progesterone cream to keep hair from thinning or falling out. It is best to test your blood level hormones to find out if you are estrogen dominant or menopausal. Most leading natural health experts' consensus is that you use a natural progesterone cream once a day for 25 days, then you should take a break for 1 to 2 weeks (menopausal women) or for the duration of your period. Repeat the process.

Most manufacturer's recommend at least a quarter of a teaspoon daily.

Explore your options and pay attention to your dietary habits to figure out the best route for you to take to relieve or prevent your hair from thinning and hair loss.
