Our daily diet can be the cause of hair loss
Hair loss has always been and still is an extra stress factor for every one of us. Surely we’ve watched ourselves in the mirror for at least 2-3 times and said “hmm, my hair is rather falling”… How many of us have actually thought that (mal)nutrition could be a possible cause?
Yes, nutrition has a great influence on the manner our hair grows. In some cases it can also cause total or partial hairloss. In the following, we shall be studying America’s population, worldwide known for having many of its society members suffering from hair loss.
We can say that the typical American diet is a determining factor. Fat rich food with the proteins almost exclusively taken from meat based products as well as a high content of salt seriously affects the kidneys and creates acid blood, which seems to lead to hair loss.
A diet poor in vitamins is also a factor that favors hair loss, also the main cause for vitamin deficiency, known for being related to hair loss issues.
Because fast-food type restaurants have increased in number, starting from the American source, we can say that Europeans too have imported the cause of hair loss, this being the unhealthy eating way.
In case you’re suffering from severe hair fall even though you have a healthy diet, mainly based on vegetables and fruit, you have to look for this situation’s reason in another place. Do you often color your hair? Are you pregnant, at menopause or taking birth control pills? We’re asking you these questions because they too are reasons for hair loss.
This article focusing on an unhealthy diet, these cases shall be excluded. A clinically healthy person loses around 50-100 hairs each day. If the number of fallen hairs highly outnumbers the mentioned numbers, then it’s case you analyze your daily diet. It’s possible for you to have consumed too much salt which affected your kidneys, affecting your hair in turn. The causes may be multiple, but these are the main ones.
Paul Pitchford, the author of “Healing with Whole Foods” says that Americans are the most affected people of hair loss from the entire world. It’s really easy to believe this because of the rich fat and animal originated protein food. Paul Pitchford also points towards the main food culprit of hair loss: salt. Americans consume impressive amounts of salt at a national level and that’s why ringing the alarm should come in handy.
What should actually worry us is that we’re slowly starting to adopt the American lifestyle. Before, we didn’t have fast-foods around so we could quickly buy something to eat. Now you can find them everywhere. The temptation of avoiding healthy home cooked food is getting greater each day, and the side effects can easily be seen…
The society we live in is a living organism itself, it develops without needing our voluntary help. It slowly and indistinguishably drains out our energy and tricks us with unhealthy surrogates like a hamburger instead of a healthy and vitamin rich bowl of soup. Our advice is to take care of your daily diet and don’t wonder too far away from the Romanian traditional cooking habits and especially from the Romanian cuisine, which, in turn is acknowledged for being healthy because of its intense vegetable use.
