According to an interesting article I just read about baldness causes and was surprise to learn that the risk for hair loss is absolutely high. Modern life brings benefits but also tremendous risk to our health. Stress, junk food, air pollution and so many factors may cause hair loss and it appears today in early age more then even before.
Hair loss endure an embarrassment and emotional pain. Many times, hair loss is temporary but in some cases it can be permanent, and in any case you should rush to your doctor immediately once you notice material shedding.
Other reasons for hair loss include too much vitamin A and anti-depressant therapy. The physical reasons for hair loss are over or under-active thyroids, certain fungal infections and hormonal imbalances. Even underlying problems such as lupus or diabetes may result in excessive hair loss.
Stress is a major factor for baldness, it may also trigger pattern baldness in women and men.
Baldness and thinning hair may be a result of:
- Toxic substances
- Severe radiation
- Illness and diseases
- Hormonal imbalance
- Nervous & stress disorders
And there are so many other causes for baldness… you can read all about them in the below link. What I want to focus on is how yoga can help to prevent hair loss.
Yoga is a natural baldness cure for the simple reason it removes stress. Stress makes you ill, it also accelerates aging, and yoga is also an old natural anti aging tradition. Stress also harm your hair. It promotes excessive level of DHT hormone levels that are the reason for pattern baldness and influences the growth cycle of your hair. Yoga does the opposite, it improves blood stream to any corner of the body including the scalp, hence providing better nutrition and oxygen to the follicles.
Yoga makes you calm and in control. It prevents the negative physiological process that stress brings, and offset it to zero. When you are healthier in general – you also have healthy hair. Healthy skin & nails. You just look and feel so much better.
When you add yoga to your daily routine your body will demand healthy food. The same happens in any sport. You will naturally prefer healthy foods and they will taste better. Healthy nutrition, vitamins and minerals will help grow shiny strong healthy hair and prevent hair loss. Yoga will reduce your blood pressure and can also cure deceases. Some medical conditions including the use of medications cause baldness. When yoga us practiced your physical condition is improved and also your hair condition. I used to have a student who suffered from hair loss. When she entered my studio for the first time her hair was so thin you could see her entire scalp. Today, 6 months later her hair is full and you can’t see her scalp. She told me she thinks it’s because of my yoga lessons, as it helped her to stop taking anti-depression drugs. “I don’t need them anymore” she said “I have found the best anti depression mediation – yoga”.
Yoga can make you look much better and it is a perfect baldness cure. If you are losing hair, start yoga. It will remove some of the main causes for baldness and improve your overall health.
