Most common imbalances and deficiencies resulting in hair loss

Cosmetic problems are usually a sign of a bigger problem under the surface.

If you are experiencing a significant amount of hair-loss, I recommend addressing  an underlying imbalance or deficiency.

What are the most common imbalances or deficiencies in terms of hair loss?

1. Thyroid issues (as both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism conditions affect the metabolic rate throughout the body, resulting in hair loss)

2. Low Ferritin (which is the storage form of iron). Basically, your hair follicles store ferritin. When your body is low on iron for its essential functions, it will steal Ferritin from the stores of less essential parts of the body – such as the hair follicle.

3. Vitamin D deficiency, as vitamin D plays a key role in cell growth and stimulating new hair follicles.

4. Insulin resistance (usually resulting in androgenetic alopecia, male balding patterns)

5. Estrogen dominance. When progesterone levels are too low, it can trigger hair loss.

6. Cortisol imbalances.  When your body is under too much stress, it affects the hair growth cycle.
