High Carb diet and Hair Loss

high-carb-diet

A high carb diet is common among many people, from bodybuilders to just everyday people who simply love carbs – what’s not to love, they make us feel good right after eating, and gives us that push when we are feeling low.

But does a high carb diet contribute to hair loss or hair thinning in men and women?

To understand this, you have to understand that our hormones (how we feel) are directly affected from carbs – this means anything from sugar to fat to carbohydrates affects the hormonal system and how you feel – that is why eating such foods makes as feel better if we are feeling depressed – but the problem is, this is not a good solution to resolving the problem in the first place.

If you feel depressed and you eat carbs, you not only push your hormones to work harder, but you also get addicted to that behavior because of the chemical reaction!  It becomes a dangerous downward spiral, and many people don’t even see it getting worse until its too late.

But there is no such thing as too late as long as you realize something.

Hair loss can easily be increased on a high carb diet as there is a lot of combustion taking place in the body, lots to process, and if you don’t exercise 24/7 to be burning those calories off, then it is even worse.

Carbs and sugars should be occasional foods, and not a regular food – if you have emotional issues, they must be handled, but not with food – most people eat because of an emotional reason be it comfort, or something else – but most do it.

How do you get rid of this addiction?

Well its simple – go on a protein no carb/sugar/fat diet – so you only eat lean meats for breakfast lunch and dinner combined with steamed leafy greens like spinach and kale – just for 2 weeks, this will rid you of your addictions of food and renew your hormone system (yes you will look younger, feel sexier and look amazing in just that short amount of time).

No, don’t take protein shakes – they have preservative chemicals and a lot of stuff that you don’t want to be taking. You can eat as much as you want, and you will still lose weight, because it will be hard to eat so much.

The fantastic thing about this diet is that if you have acid reflux problems or heart burn – this is the cure to it! It usually fully cures it in 2 weeks, but if you still have it, then continue the diet for longer – some people with serious hormone issues do it for a whole year and renew every cell in their body.

You can go back to your normal diet, but you will find it hard to consume that much sugar and carbs, because you will be aware of how rich it is, and that you don’t really need it – how amazing is that?

Please share this with your friends and family so that everyone can benefit from this diet!

Does Niacin help with Hair Growth?

Emotional Health for Beauty

 

Niacin (Vitamin B3) is a water soluble vitamin which is required by the body at a constant rate (like all B vitamins); it is required constantly because the body cannot hold onto these and store them for later use.

What is the significance of Niacin Vitamin supplementation for hair growth and naturally thickening hair for men and women?

This is the question often asked – and people are often looking for studies on hair growth and Niacin.

This is one of the few vitamins which can almost instantly cause something known as a flush – which is expansion of the blood vessels (for up to 20 minutes at a time, depending on dosage taken) – this expansion of vessels has a very beneficial effect on helping blood circulation and improving natural states of health – but is this flush the only benefit?

Not exactly – although the flush is an important part of the Niacin benefit (so don’t get the anti-flush Niacin they sell), in terms of helping regrow thicker hair, it is not the only major reason it helps with hair growth in men and women – Niacin helps the nerves to relax, and thus helping the stopping of stress hormones to constantly being released (which drain the body, but also cause hair problems).

Is the Niacin flush dangerous?

No – it is helpful – the first time you experience it, you might think you are getting warm, or tingly, but this is perfectly fine. People often take it before bed so that they don’t have to be awake to experience it, but it is not actually a bad thing to experience.

How should I start taking Niacin for hair growth, and what dosage?

Niacin should be started on a low dosage, like 50 mg per day, then 100 mg per day after 1 week – and doubling every week, and maintaining at 500 mg per day. This should be taken long term for at least 18 months if you want to experience the full benefits of Niacin.

Where should I buy Niacin from? What is the best brand out there?

B3 vitamins are usually sold in varying qualities which the companies often don’t disclose, but reliable companies often charge a lot more than others for good quality ones – so buy the most expensive one you can; be sure it is actually expensive, and not just being over priced by the retailer you happen to visit or website you first see.

We have experience with using Solgar B3 Vitamins – which are actually very cheap but still expensive for its range – and have found their supplements to be of good quality – but be sure to eat B3 vitamins with food, or after eating a meal.

What studies have been done to match Niacin with hair growth?

Many users have reported better quality hair after taking Niacin. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime, you can definitely help your hair growth positively. You can read more information by clicking here about Niacin and its studies.

 

Bone Marrow and Hair Growth linked – Eastern Sciences

bone soup 33

 

Bone marrow and hair growth and natural beauty have been linked, not only by western scientists but also Eastern medical teams which practice ancient healing methods like herbology and acupuncture.

It has been said that the youthful appearance that we often talk about comes from the healthy state of our bone marrow, and the science community in Asian countries often claim the benefits of Qigong and bone marrow building exercises for their youthful appearances and great hair.

There are many ways to keep healthy, but bone marrow staying fresh and constantly exercised by doing stance training exercises like the commonly known horse stance in martial arts, is ideal to build and maintain healthy bone marrow in the body – this produces fresh blood, and pushes the nervous system to a new edge due to the constant practice of such exercises – so not only do you look younger, you also feel younger, and have great hair on your head even at a very old age.

What about genetics?

Yes genetics plays a role – but if you change your habits now, and build good exercise regimes, this itself already changes the expression of your genetics; genetics is often misunderstood as “destiny” but this is far from the truth – genetics is always constantly changing, and its expression is dependant on your diet, everyday emotions and your exercise levels (blood circulation to the organs etc).

Will drinking bone soup help with hair growth?

As a part of an overall regime, yes it will support health at its foundation, and will greatly increase nutritional density in your body and bones – constantly having this soup as well as exercising 3-4 times a week to your full extent (various exercises, not just one type) will surely support your youthful appearance and hair growth and quality of hair that is grown.

In natural healing, it must be understood that its very different from western healing methods of taking a pill and expecting results to come – in natural healing it is about doing everything you know that will help contribute towards your health and well being – including leaving friends that stress you out, or making new friends that support your emotional health rather than abuse it, improving your current food quality intake, increasing physical activity and a lot more all powerfully help towards increasing youthful appearance and hair growth.

Is Hair ReGrowth really Possible in Men and Women?

is hair regrowth really possible in men and women

There are so many factors in regrowing hair, and with so many unsuccessful attempts of people trying to regrow or even maintain hair growth, it is important to understand the fundamentals of hair growth, before you look for hair growth products and oils and everything in-between.

Genetics – My hair falling is genetically predispositioned, does this mean I cannot regrow hair?

Genetics of today has not at all been understood fully, and any doctor or scientist making claims that genetics limit your changing of your body in such a way such as regrowing hair is very inaccurate – a few years ago, genetics was seen as fixed – today we know that genes change from our daily patterns in life; from eating to lifestyle with emotional management and social aspects.

So until scientists are able to make a face of the owner of the DNA, it is actually not possible and inaccurate to say that genetics will make it hard for you to regrow hair (as a man or women).

So how does one regrow hair as a man or women? What if things don’t work?

Things often don’t work when trying to resolve something naturally – the pharmaceutical thrive of this because a core fundamental understanding of natural healing is missing – this understanding is that one has to do everything known, to push and create the biological changes in the body, to push the body to create the change you need.

So for example – if you want to lose weight; dieting alone can help – but combining dieting and exercise is even better. Even better is making healthy foods a part of the lifestyle, and making your job a working job where you always move around – the same methodology is applied to things like treating problems like hair thinning and growing hair again; but a little more complex because it involves specific things in diet, exercise and emotional and mental attitude.

We do have top products that are used for helping with hair growth, but this is only a fraction of what is really needed if you want to seriously regrow hair; a full lifestyle change is required for sure.

 

 

The Best Way to Grow Thick Hair

The Best Way to Grow Thick Hair

 

There are many methods and tips of hair growth (speed and thickness) out there online; but knowing what really works better than another is mystery most never realize – the good news is, we have done all the research for you, and thanks to our blog, you can find out everything you need to about speeding up hair growth, as well as thickening hair growth naturally.

We write a lot on our blog about hair growth and stopping hair loss – but there is an underlying element which we keep pointing towards – whether you have african american hair, or caucasian or any type of hair – have you guessed what it is?

It’s blood circulation. 

Even if your hair loss is caused by hormonal problems – and you can somehow, increase blood circulation as well as quality of blood circulation, you can improve not only hair growth speed and thickness, but your skin quality and overall level of alertness and mental clarity – but to reach this, there are many things one has to do, t

What factors improve blood circulation?

Let’s just give them to you in bullet points so its easier for you to understand.

Movement of all kinds: Walking, exercise and breathing properly are the physical aspects of this. Breathing deeper and slower is a crucial part of this, as it not only slows down heart rate and helps control anxiety, which in turn controls the bad hormones from being released more than they need to be released.

Walking and exercise long term (yoga, qigong, jogging, swimming, weight training, stretching all ALL very important) can keep up and open the blood circulation system of our bodies – the problem is, todays society we have little time because of the job or the new baby in the family to find the right time – but this must be found; there is always a way, if you really want to improve and get real results, not only for thicker hair growth, but your life in general.

– Diet and Foods: There are many great foods you can eat. But it is important to avoid sugar and carbs as much as possible and they should not be part of everyday life as most modern society thinks they should – these should be treats. This includes natural sugars and artificial sugars; both produce a negative effect in the body if taken everyday – eating lean meats can help improve the stomach and digestion, and a complete vegetarian diet (cooked) is also great – a balance between the both is great too – we are talking strictly for improving hair growth, as well as overall body health (which is an important factor in having fast and thick hair growth on the scalp).

Avoiding deep fried foods like french fries and donuts are a must – these cannot exist in your diet at all for at least 3-6 months – otherwise you cannot expect to get real results.

Scalp Massage: This is probably an under-rated technique to improving blood circulation on the head. It is known as a fact in eastern countries, but in western countries people often look for clinical trials, and if they don’t exist, then they don’t tend to believe. The problem with this is; 100% of natural methods and products out there, will never have clinical trials needed to say something works; this is because medical companies want to patented methods to be created, so they can make a profit – clinical trials are only performed on artificially made drugs which can be patented, but not on drugs that are free available for all to buy.

Granted – there are some handful clinical studies on natural methods for hair growth – but these are so small, and so easy to criticize – so the best study you can do for yourself is do a 20 minute scalp massage every single day for 3 months; and look yourself at the results, rather than looking for studies – we know it works, its a culturally proven thing in all eastern countries – there was no balding men in eastern countries when they lived by their cultural norms and before the westernization of many of these countries (very generally speaking).

Remember – hair growth and skin is directly related to how well you take care of your body and health. So if you focus on your general health, you are bound to increase your hair growth and quality of life in general.

How to Make Hair Grow Faster – Effective Methods Revealed

How to make your hair grow faster

 

There are multiple things that need to be done in order to make your hair growth speed increase at its fastest possible level – but one most important element in natural methods must be understood.

Whenever you are trying to achieve something naturally – ie not using harmful drugs – it is VITAL that you do multiple things to target the problem in multiple ways – this means the food intake, the exercise as the basis for all kinds of health related things.

So if you are trying to increase hair growth speed and make average hair grow faster, there are some methods but all must be done, and made into a lifestyle – here are a few:

Exercise: Regular exercise of at least 4-5 times a week, where you do exercise for 40 minutes at least (not including breaks between to catch your breath). If you do yoga, then this is great, but you need to also incorporate exercises that use up your full lung capacity (makes you breathless) such as brisk walking, jogging, jump rope skipping and even swimming.

What this does is push the body to clean out the circulation system of the body – helping blood flow to the organs (which is needed for optimal fast thick hair growth) and flow to the scalp (which is also essential).

Now a manual exercise for increasing scalp blood flow is to do a scalp massage for 20 minutes a day – its easy to do before bedtime, or whilst watching your favorite movie or drama on TV. Scalp massage will push out any blocked vessels (as they get blocked easily because they are very thin and tiny) – and this will push out faster hair growth in just 24 hours believe it or not.

Now once you have achieved the above and built a routine – then you can look at the foods you eat and try to avoid the following foods:

– Sugar

– Wheat

– Fried Foods (like donuts, french fries etc)

– Greasy foods (like Doner Kebabs or poor quality meat which has way too much fat)

These foods will actually make your hair grow slower, but also cause it to get thinner in the long term – so these are best avoided generally to maintain great health, but also to have the fastest growing hair on your scalp.

If you have accomplished doing the above, but still not satisfied with the hair growth, you can add to your regime, some products – and remove some products – avoid taking shampoos that have SLS chemicals in them – try to find natural organic shampoos that are not harsh for your hair – and do not wash your hair everyday.

A product you can use is called the Taoist Soap – this is recommended for the scalp health, and also for people with thinning hair that want to thicken the hair – it is an organic soap designed for the scalp and skin on the face and rids of toxins and inflammation at its most powerful with the rarest ingredients on the planet (hence the price).

Use the Taoist soap about 1-2 times a week for increasing hair growth – you don’t need to use it everyday – it generally helps because inflammation also slows hair growth down, and everyone has some level of inflammation on their bodies including the scalp to some extent, even if you can’t feel it or have hair loss.

Does the Immortal’s Oil work for Hair Growth?

immortals oil 33Lot’s of talk about the famous Immortal’s Oil produced by ImmortalsOil.com exclusively – does it work, or are the reviews questionable for it? And what does science say about using an oil such as this for hair growth?

The Immortal’s Oil was developed specifically for hair loss, be it caused by hormonal problems, or skin problems – as the cause of hair loss is always inflammation – DHT can cause inflammation in men, which then makes the hair fall, and in women it would be other hormones or stress that could cause the inflammation – in either case, its inflammation that causes the problem, and this is where the Immortal’s Oil can greatly benefit stopping and re-growing thicker hair.

Other famous oil’s like Castor oil, Virgin olive oil, Coconut Oil and some others are known for preventing hair loss – but them alone cannot actually help regrow hair because their use has to be prolonged, and over this period of use, the scalp can become inflamed further because those oil types are not closely replicating human oils produced in the scalp – so the body starts fighting the oils rather than accepting it as it’s own – this is why you will hear great reviews about castor oil, but after a week of use, the results start backfiring – the Immortal’s Oil is specifically designed for long term use, whilst allowing you to stop use, without going through a hair shedding period often experienced by users of other oils and drugs.

From first hand data and third party reviews we have found the Immortal’s oil to significantly improve hair growth in men and women with no negative side effects that are normally experienced by similar products.

It seems the secret of the Immortal’s Oil is in the size of its molecules being small enough to penetrate the skin deeply, to force hair follicles to produce hair – and when the right amount of hair is naturally being produced again, then the end-user can stop using the oil if they wish, without reversing the results they have already achieved.

 

Essentials of Food – Number One Myth Explained

food for healthPeople often say, eat right, or eat healthy – and vegetables come to mind – and for some people, certain types of meat also come to mind – but all food is not equal, and this needs to be understood beyond just a concept.

Food grown under certain conditions will not have the same amount of nutrition when its grown in another – and not only that, the difference can be massive! One could have almost zero helpful nutrients in it, whilst the exact same species of food grown in another way would have a thousand times more nutrition density.

So why all this talk about nutrition density?

Nutrition density is a key factor here – because over the last 100 years, we have seen a dramatic decrease in quality of food we produce – even though everything has gone much more hygienic and neater looking – the nutrition is no longer there.

Why?

Because of various intensive farming practices, and the way business is done in today’s time, compared to how it was before – plus the population increase to this level.

Over-farming over the same ground, drains the soil from nutrients and minerals that the soil has to give to the plants – normally leaves fall on the ground and get decomposed which naturally help the soil get fertilized – but now we have to artificially fertilize the soil and adjust the PH of the soil to make it ideal matching for the plants and crops grown – this is not the best way to grow crops that have nutrition dense vitamins and minerals.

On top of that, most western farms have started using GMO (genetically modified organism) crops, which are genetically altered to withstand the pollution, and to also produce larger, and nicer looking crops so that they sell better – again, the idea of profit, rather than anything else coming first, is hurting the nutrition quality of the food.

You may see larger bananas or larger and more beautiful looking vegetables, but these do not contain as much nutrients as the organic and non-GMO counterpart, the original.

If you ever go to a third world country where mass farming methods have not yet been standardized and where the population is not a lot – you will see the difference in taste of their food compared to the foods in the top mass producing countries or mass production buyers – UK, USA and Europe.

So how do you deal with this problem to help you get the right nutrients for your body?

The good news is, your body is able to evolve, and able to extract better nutrition out of a less nutrient dense food item – but you must help it to do this – if you are already trying to recover from a certain illness, or even just correcting your skin or hair loss issue – then buying organic and Non-GMO food is the best way to go – supporting local farms who you know well, and how they grow their crops (don’t hesitate to even ask them such questions and even to view the growing methods).

Buying non-GMO seeds is also another way to grow your own supply of vegetables to help with keeping nutrition density at its best – grow things that are best grown in the environment you live in – as these will produce even better nutritional quality than any other.
