Now I’m no health professional but as I researched the possibility of this theory, I came across this article from The Trichological Society, and this one from ScienceDaily which posits that blood vessels hold the key to thicker hair growth.
One may point out that increasing the flow of blood to the follicles is what should be credited with an increase in growth, but if that blood is weak or deficient in nutrients the results would hardly be anything to write home about; so while the articles do not directly endorse the blood-group diet, deductive reasoning based on the content they share would cause one such as myself, to see a link between their positions and a diet that aims to get the body operating at optimum performance by placing emphasis on the blood.
We would not recommend that you simply buy the book and start following the diet. If it is something you think could work for you, it is prudent that you see a naturopath and do the proper tests.
Remember that you would want to ensure the diet is tailored to you specifically so that other things specific to your health can be captured in the analysis before a diagnosis is made and a course of treatment is implemented.
Such things as pre-existing conditions, medical procedures that were done and medication taken would be things that the naturopath would need to know.
It’s not just about vanity. Sure we want to be snatched and get those curls bodied, but this would assist with overall health since, the diet assists with weight loss, chronic illnesses, and infertility. There are many people suffering and their hair loss is just a symptom.
If this diet could somehow reset their system and improve their quality of life, that would be awesome. I believe that the doctors among us should seriously look into how this could help. Even if they do rule the theory out, at least we would be a step closer in the search for remedies for those who suffer from alopecia and hair loss linked to chronic issues.
Let us know in the comments below what you think of this theory. Have you heard of or tried the blood group diet?
