Prevent Hair Loss with Natural Treatments

For those suffering with Alopecia or Hair Loss, use simple Natural Treatments – that’s my philosophy. Why should we use anything else?

Over the years there have been many different approaches to the treatment of scalp disorders. However I have felt for some time that there needed to be a new approach for treating hair and scalp problems; one that can give realistic hope to those sufferers of Alopecia and other scalp diseases; revolutionise the way hair care is understood, and solve many of the existing hair and scalp problems. It’s essential for the sufferer to obtain  effective and practical advice, combined with much needed psychological support.

Extensive research has been carried out to find out exactly what causes hair loss and scalp problems that are becoming more and more apparent in today’s modern life. The results of this research have actually changed the way we approach hair and scalp care.

Here are some tips everyone can use to help prevent hair loss and thinning hair and treat with natural treatments:

First of all, it’s important to understand that hair is a bi-product of blood.  The health of our hair is determined by the health of our body.  In other words the composition of our blood determines the quality and growth of our hair. Therefore to treat the hair and scalp, it’s not possible to obtain a good result by using topical lotions alone. You cannot feed the hair externally. If you could, the shampoo or conditioner would be systemic and that would constitute a drug!

What causes poor blood quality? Bad Diet, Stress, Trauma.

Diet is a very important factor in good hair and scalp health. In particular what sort of food we are eating to not only keep ourselves alive, but keep ourselves healthy. It’s just too easy to ‘grab some food, and go’ as the saying goes. Unfortunately if we just grab and go, we tend to grab stuff that’s not particularly good for us, nor nutritious enough to keep our body in good condition.

It’s essential to eat RAW, uncooked, unfrozen food. Not many of us could sit down and eat raw foods day in — day out. But we can strike a good balance in our diets. If we are constantly eating cooked, or frozen (then cooked) food, then we are eating ‘dead’ food, having killed off all the live enzymes. There are food supplements that help replenish our reserves of live enzymes, and to read more click this link to another article.

The improvement of the hair and scalp health relies on the improvement of the body’s health and immune system. The healthier the person, the healthier the hair. Circulation of blood to the scalp is very significant to hair health, as without adequate blood supply the hair follicles are not able to receive enough nutrients.

How often you wash your hair will depend on your hair type and your own personal preference.  Greasy hair might need to be washed as often as once a day; normal or dry hair perhaps twice a week. All types of hair should be washed at least once a week to remove the build-up of dirt and pollutants which most of us are subjected to all the time. A natural shampoo, preferably non-hormonal, non-steroidal and completely formulated from natural ingredients, is safe to use by everybody. Daily massaging of the scalp is also recommended, using the Eucaderm method of Scalp Stimulator Lotion combined with cold water massage for best results.

Stress or trauma can be a factor that promotes poor scalp health or the onset of a scalp disease such as Alopecia. (In fact the author was involved in a bad car accident as a teenager, then some six months later suffered severe hair loss – see my story here) The extra release of adrenaline and stress chemicals affect the composition of the blood, so can cause hair loss. Being aware of this can itself help combat this problem and enable the sufferer to get help sooner rather than later.
