Discover if Your Hair Has a Mineral Deficiency and What You Can Do to Fix it.
“When I was a kid, I would love to grow my hair long. I thought that the longer it was, the healthier it was, but now I know that isn’t the truth. I used to use shampoo to dry out my hair because I thought oil was a bad thing. Again, I was very wrong. If my hair was not looking of feeling healthy it was most likely due to a mineral deficiency, not enough good fat or a poor diet.”
By the time you realize your hair has mineral deficiency symptoms, and your body shows signs of a mineral deficiency, changes are probably noticeable and improvement may feel like turning the Titanic around, but there is help and we have answers! A hair analysis is an amazing way to test for mineral deficiency. It will provide you with answers for which minerals are low and what toxins are high. And the higher the toxins, the lower the detox capability usually is. With the proper protocol, adding the right minerals, making dietary improvements for the right mineral deficiency support, your body and hair can repair itself, from the inside, out.
Zinc is a mineral which has antioxidant properties and also supports cellular replication and production of proteins, thereby promoting hair growth. Foods naturally rich in Zinc include seafood, beef and lamb, wheat germ (toasted), spinach and pumpkin seeds.
Selenium is essential for a healthy thyroid gland which can lead to healthy hair. Selenium-rich foods are such as eggs, meat, fish, nuts, lobster and crab. Too much selenium, though, may result in the same brittle hair and nails as too little of other others. Selenium needs to be just right, not too high and not too low.
What about protein and amino acids? Hair is made almost entirely of protein. Consuming enough is vital for hair growth. Sometimes we see that mineral deficiency is not the cause, but low protein/amino acids are.
Testing for mineral deficiency in the hair is a simple, and effective way to understand how to reach healthy levels no matter where your results fall, high or low.
