I hear a lot of people having hair loss and thinning, and they’re made to believe that it’s inevitable because of their family lineage.
Sure, your parents’ illnesses can definitely be passed down to you, but this doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it.
You can think of it like a cold — just because your parents have it and infect you with it doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of it. Or better yet, you could think ahead and boost your immune system and prevent the infection in the first place.
Those are the same two options that you have when it comes to hereditary hair loss. You can either wait for it to occur and then address the problem or you can do something about it before it becomes an issue.
What’s causing hereditary hair loss?
Hair loss is just a symptom of an underlying problem inside of your body. The same with heart disease, diabetes, obesity and any other illness you can develop (due to poor diet). It’s not natural to have any of these conditions, just as it’s not normal to have hair loss.
All this means is that a nutritional deficiency started long ago and has continued to be passed down from generation to generation.
Problems that you have in your body all come down to the health of your parents and their diet. This is why you may notice that some of your aunts and uncles “contract” the hereditary baldness and others don’t. While in some cases, all of them may witness it at some point in their life.
It all depends on what your mother and father were eating during your creation in the womb and before, and what you end up eating after you’re born.
But again, just as with any illness, baldness is only a symptom. Addressing the symptom isn’t the answer to your problem.
Don’t focus on a particular vitamin or mineral
You’ll hear that you need to consume more protein and certain vitamins* like biotin*, folic acid and protein. Since vitamins* and minerals work together in a synergistic way, you need to focus on providing your body with a well-balanced intake of all nutrients that your body requires.
You’re already imbalanced and simply upping your intake of one or two minerals could further disrupt your system. When you give your body everything it needs, it will do the balancing out for you. So your focus should be on taking in lots of nutrition and fixing your diet.
