If it isn’t you, likely you know someone else who’s in their 20s or 30s who already has strands of gray hairs sprouting from their scalp (or face, if it’s a male). I know I’ve seen a lot of young people with this problem, and indeed a problem it is.
It’s definitely not normal for youths to get gray hairs and it’s not alright for older people to get it either. In our society, we have grown accustomed to seeing gray hair being associated with old age and stress, but in actuality, it has a deeper connection to your overall health.
When you have a healthy body, your hairs won’t turn gray…period. For example, there’s this woman named Ann Wigmore who was in her 50s and was plagued with all sorts of health problems and rocked a head full of grays.
However, by simply switching to plant-based foods and smoothies, she was able to get rid of the health problems that plagued her and surprisingly, her hair started to turn back to it’s natural color.
This isn’t shocking news in the natural community, where we see this happening all the time. So for those who are witnessing a couple of strands or even patches of gray hair, you need to see past the white hairs to the real problem your body is having.
What it means when you start to have gray hairs
Whatever age you are, when you start to see gray hairs, there’s an issue. For the most part, like balding, it means that your body is severely lacking in a variety of vitamins* and minerals, such as B vitamins*, vitamin C*, vitamin E*, zinc*, copper* and iodine.
Your gray hairs could also be pointing to other illnesses and health problems you currently have, such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Grave’s disease, anemia, Chrohn’s disease, celiac disease, weakened blood vessel integrity, weak immune system, fish tapeworms, intestinal bacterial overgrowth, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Pretty much, gray hair is a major warning sign that you are very unhealthy and could be on the verge of a stroke or other cardiovascular disorder, among other things. So don’t take this lightly.

I won’t be changing my 89% greys. I’ve embraced it as the gift that it is. Oh, by the way I don’t have any of the diseases listed.
That is so not true, for some reason natural hair grays probably because of the lack of chemicals. It has nothing to do with the health of the individual.
