There are three main types of hair loss, and one of them is by far the most common among women.  

In fact, if affects about 80% of women over the age of 40.  It's called telogen effluvium, and thats the one we're talking about in this whole series.

What You Can Do To Help Prevent Or Reverse Thinning Hair In Menopause

All six causes of hair loss can be addressed with diet and lifestyle changes. 

This is great news, because it's safe, natural, and you can do it at home. **

This is bad news because it's not just a pill or quick fix! 

I recommend using diet, lifestyle, and possibly supplements to counteract all 6 possible causes of hair loss. This can help your hair AND  your overall health & hormonal balance.

Over the course of this series of blog articles, I'm going to show you how you can use a combination of the right:

  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Supplements
  • Herbs
  • Essential Oils
  • Reduction of Toxic Load
  • Antifungal strategies
  • Getting enough sleep

As part of a comprehensive plan to keep your hair thick, shiny, and healthy.

In future videos in this series, I'll show you ways to to do each of these and how to make a plan to make it easy to combine them all. 

What About Testing? 

​If you're dealing with hair loss already (not just preventing it) I recommend talking with your healthcare practitioner about doing some testing.  

Be sure to ask about testing your thyroid (including tests for thyroid antibodies) and your iron (including ferritin.) 

So To Review, Hair Loss... 

Is incredibly common (80% of women experience it!) 

Eliminating as many possible causes of hair loss as possible is the best way to keep your hair thick and healthy. 

If you're already experiencing thinning hair, ask your healthcare practitioner about some basic lab testing to check for hormonal hair loss.
