Stress & Hormone imbalance causes hair loss
If you’re finding more strands of hair than usual on your pillowcase and in the shower drain, you may be wondering if anxiety or stress is to blame.
You’ve probably heard about a possible link between stress and hair loss, but is there any truth to that claim? Whether you’re feeling frazzled by work or are overwhelmed by emotional events, it’s natural to feel concerned about how stress can affect your body.
Stress is a well-known factor of hair loss, which can cause or aggravate a handful of different hair growth disorders. Hair loss can also by caused by an imbalance of thyroid hormones, pregnancy and menopause.
How to rebalance your hormones and reduce stress
Getting your gut balance is the first step to rebalancing your hormones and your overall health. Our gut is the cornerstone to our wellbeing and it touted as our second brain for good reason too. For more information on Gut health visit Fruitful Digest.
Learn to relax more and take time for yourself. Take up yoga or gentle exercise to rebalance your inner wellness and reduce excessive cardio. Stop yo-yo dieting, reduce your caffeine intake and destress by taking a bath.
Ashwagandha, in particular, can be extremely effective at balancing hormones and that’s why we included it in Banana Nourish. It benefits thyroid function because it promotes the scavenging of free radicals that cause cellular damage.
Ashwagandha can be used to support a sluggish or overactive thyroid, and it can also help to overcome adrenal fatigue. Your adrenals can become overtaxed when you experience too much emotional, physical or mental stress, leading to the disruption of hormones like adrenaline, cortisol and progesterone.
Ashwagandha properties help to:
- Protect the immune system
- Reduce blood sugar levels (insulin and diabetes)
- Has anti cancer properties
- Reduces cortisol (stress) levels
- May reduce symptoms of depression
- Offers inflammatory benefits
- Improve brain function, including memory
- Helps to improve your sleep patterns
