Do you or someone you know suffer from an auto immune disease? My client, who suffers from alopecia (auto immune disease where you lose all your hair) had no hair when I first met her. Well, she showed up today with a surprise! She took her hat off for me and "TADA!"
She thought I was crazy when I told her that she had a food allergy causing her to lose her hair. She is a total believer now! She was so excited that she had her first hair cut in over 10 years!
We eliminated certain foods and added in some specific supplements to help with skin and hair conditions.
If you or someone you know is interested in getting on the right path, please email me for a consult. I would be honored to help!
Are you a female? an athlete? or have a food allergy and are low in iron? Spinach is very high in available iron which is very important to supplement with especially if you are female (about 90% of females are iron deficient and this is why they don’t have enough energy and are losing hair). If you lack iron you have a hard time carrying oxygen to the mitochondria of you cell, which is where you burn fat. SO, if you are low in iron, fat burning is hard to accomplish. Low iron can be caused by a FOOD SENSITIVITY (your intestines inhibit you from absorbing iron), heavy menstrual cycles, heavy exercising, or not eating meat. Low iron causes high anxiety. HEALTH TIP: adding lemon to meals with iron, helps with absorption; it can increase your body's absorption of the iron by up to 20 times!
Tip: for those with a compromised thyroid, don't consume excessive amounts of raw spinach.
