Female Hair Loss…Getting to the Follicle of the Issue!
- Posted on: Aug 27 2014
Hair loss is one of those dreaded things that many of us will have to deal with at some point in our lives. It can happen during your morning shower, while you’re blowing it dry, or when you brush it. A certain amount of this is normal, but there often comes a time when the amount of hair we are losing goes well beyond normal.
As with any health related issue, you should always begin with one simple question…WHY? Why exactly am I losing my hair? Once you get the answer to this question you can begin to develop a plan to stop or even reverse hair loss!
Let’s Look at Some of the Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women:
Hair loss or thinning in women is often a result of sub-optimal thyroid function. When our bodies are not producing enough thyroid, or not utilizing the thyroid it makes efficiently, we can experience a slowing effect on all of our bodily functions…including our hair, skin and nails.
This is an extremely common issue with women in their 40s and is not uncommon in women in their 30s or younger. However, most women will go undiagnosed by their physicians because their lab results fall in the “normal range”. The range for thyroid function is far too wide to account for your personal needs. You don’t’ want to just be in the normal range…you want to be in your personal OPTIMAL range.
At Dr. Shel Wellness & Medical Spa, we use more in-depth testing and look at the person as a whole. We look at all of their symptoms and treat each patient within their individual optimal ranges. You can always request a FREE Consultation with one of our consultants.
There are many nutritional deficiencies that can attribute to hair loss. Some of the more common deficiencies are Iron, B Vitamins, Biotin, Folate, and Zinc.
The key to finding out exactly what you’re deficient in is Micro-Nutrient Vitamin Deficiency Testing. Through a quick test that is performed in-office by collecting a blood sample, we can pinpoint exactly what your nutritional deficiencies are.
Once you are armed with this information, you can then begin taking high quality medical grade supplements to correct your deficiencies. You can easily find all the appropriate Supplements to combat Hair Loss, including my own Hair, Nails & Skin formula on our website. There is also a very exciting FDA approved laser device that helps to stimulate hair growth called iGrow.
If you have any questions or would like more information about vitamin deficiency testing or the hair loss supplements we offer, please feel free to request a FREE Consultation.
As women get into their 30s they begin to experience a gradual decline in hormones, particularly progesterone. With this decrease a woman is left with too much estrogen in relation to her progesterone. This imbalance can cause a host of negative symptoms including weight gain, anxiety/depression, insomnia, and yes, even hair loss!
Treating hormonal imbalances with Bio-Identical Hormones is the key to alleviating these symptoms in a safe and effective manner. Unfortunately, many women come to their doctors with these symptoms and are told they are fine and then given an anti-depressant. In many cases, these drugs not only don’t fix the problem, but can actually make things worse, including worsening hair loss.
Hair loss is actually a common side effect of many medications, such as antidepressants, beta-blockers, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Unfortunately, many women are put on these drugs routinely as a band-aid without being presented the option of treating the root cause of their conditions.
