Hair Loss




Did you have beautiful, healthy hair that encaptured the glances of the ladies and gentlemen as they treaded through your path. Now, you wonder what is happening to your beautiful tresses. What is causing your hair to break just as rapidly as it grows. Well, let's talk about a factor that can effect your hair retention. As you know, we need a robust body in order to have healthy hair. One source to help in maintaining healthy hair is having a sufficient amount of iodine in the body.


We need iodine for healthy growth of hair, bones, & teeth. Hair loss can be a common sign of a lack of a variety of things; such as, iodine, iron, magnesium, & zinc. Check with your doctor to see if you are getting your proper nutrients to help have healthy hair, skin, organs, & tissue. If you don't get enough iodine, your thyroid want function properly. This may cause hair loss, because of the lack of thyroid hormone. Iodine is an essential element to your hair's health. According to Livestrong, "adults need 100 mcg to 200 mcg of dietary iodine daily."



People and animals need iodine:
Just as people need iodine to maintain their hair health, animals need it also. Farmers have known the value of iodine to the health of their animal's coats for years. According to Globalhealingcenter.com, "Sheep farmers noticed that iodine-poor soils produced iodine-deficient plants, which produced iodine-deficient sheep." Those sheep had a poor quality of wool. It shows the need for iodine in the diet of humans and animals in order to have healthy hair. The lack of iodine in humans can cause poor hair growth.

Iodine may prevent or reduce hair loss:
It has been said by globalhealingcenter.com that, "Taking a nascent, vegetarian form of iodine may prevent or reverse hair loss." Your doctor can check your iodine level, if you think that your hair shedding can be do to lack of iodine. If you have a thyroid disorder from iodine deficiency, make sure you only take what the doctor prescribe for you. Try to eat iodine rich food sources to help with your iodine sources.

Good food source of iodine:
*Iodized salt
*Seafood
*Kelp
*Dairy products ( milk, cheese, & yogurt)
*Fruits &  vegetables grown in soil that is rich in iodine. 

Livestrong states, "While iodine may affect hair growth indirectly via its effects on thyroid function, and directly, when applied as a topical treatment for alopecia areata, not all problems with hair growth and hair health are related to iodine deficiency. A number of factors may influence hair growth, including heredity, aging, medical conditions and deficiencies of other nutrients such as protein." Therefore, make sure to check and see if you have the proper intake of a variety of vitamins & keep your medical conditions under control to help alleviate hair loss. Now, it's time to dominate the runway with your strength, elegance and beauty. Make them heads turn. Let's go ladies & gentlemen. Have a healthy mind, body, soul, & hair.
