Female Hair Loss Is Often Hormone Related

Hair LossIt’s not uncommon for some women to experience extra thin, sparse hair sometimes with a bald scalp.  It’s a sensitive subject, no doubt, and something you can prevent from happening to you.

Due to environmental factors, there is an epidemic among women of having too much estrogen in their bodies.  Chemicals which mimic estrogen are in our foods, cosmetics, body care products and so many other things we come in contact with in our everyday lives.  These chemicals inhibit your hormone system and cause you to produce less follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, which naturally stimulate the production of both estrogen and progesterone.  In simple terms, it causes hair loss.

When you don’t have enough progesterone in your body, testosterone can take its place.  The result is unwanted facial hair and hair loss on the head in a male pattern from the effect of testosterone, which turns into the hair-blocking hormone DHT.   A word of note, I am not advocating self-diagnosing yourself with progesterone creams or patches.  Your system deserves better than that!

Normally a woman doesn’t have much DHT because it’s blocked by the progesterone. But with all the estrogen women are getting, such as with all the soy products on the market and parabens in their body care products, progesterone is suppressed and hair loss occurs.  As DHT forms in a women’s body due to too much estrogen, it collects in the sebum gland in the scalp and causes damage to your hair follicles. Hair strands may shrink and eventually fall out.

If you are starting to notice hair loss, now is the time to check your hormones before the hair loss becomes irreversible. I offer a simple and accurate saliva test which when analyzed by the lab, produces a clear picture of what’s going on.  If a problem is identified, I work with clients on an individual basis to balance their system, not with drugs, but naturally.
