Does my Health really affect my Hair Loss?
does my health really affect my hair loss?
There seems to be an endless stream of sources in our society that place a heavy emphasis on health, whether presenting a new, revolutionary diet, introducing a high-calorie burning workout or suggesting another approach to medical treatment—the options are endless. But does it really all matter? And who can we actually trust for our medical advice or any advice for that matter? The answer is YES, of course health is important and is your hair and how you look effects how you feel!
35.7% of the United States is considered obese. That’s a number that has been shockingly high for a number of years, yet there doesn’t seem to be a decrease. Obesity isn’t the only prevalent disease within our culture; heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and arthritis are also on the rise. What each of these has in common is the fact that they could all be easily avoided with the taking of preventative measures. Studies show that these, along with several other chronic illnesses that lead to the decrease in quality of life can be connected to factors such as obesity, lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, and tobacco/alcohol use. Each of these issues can easily be adjusted by an individual with a choice of whether or not to engage in the activity. We each have the opportunity, regardless of our background or genetic makeup to pave the way for ourselves to a long, healthy life.
“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
Making life style changes likely won’t happen over night, no matter how great your intentions are. What’s important to remember is that everything’s a process, and it’ll take some time to see results. There are a number of blogs, TV shows, magazines and self-help books out there, so many that it can be incredibly overwhelming, almost putting an automatic halt to many folks’ journey towards health from the very beginning. Our advice would be to first seek the wisdom of your family doctor or Endocrinologist or seek advice from HPIHair Partners regarding your options and solutions —they’ll not only have access to knowledge of your medical history, but also be no which test to run to get to the “root” (there are more roots than one).
