Prevention Goes Beyond JUST the Skin and Body

Published: Tuesday, 01 January 2019 00:00

Often overlooked is the health of our hair and scalp, until something is wrong and symptoms like flaking, itch, excessive hair shedding or hair loss show up.

Eating healthy, exercising and decreasing stress are all steps many of us take to live a longer, healthier life. As a society, we understand the importance of preventative care when it comes to taking care of our bodies. Sometimes conditions that are diagnosed early can be easier to treat.

Similarly, when it comes to our skin, we see signs of age in our skin as collagen breaks down, lines first appear and over time wrinkles become noticeable. The solution—anti-aging creams, rejuvenating masks, and wrinkle serums that help prevent the signs of aging in skin for as long as possible. These anti-aging regimens are important to our skin’s overall health and well-being.

Do any of your relatives suffer from hair loss or hair thinning? This might seem like a random question to some, but for individuals with a family history of hair loss it is extremely important when understanding how to prevent hereditary hair loss.

Too often, hair loss and hair thinning go undetected until becoming noticeable to the naked eye, but by then a considerable amount of hair may already be gone.

Never Too Soon to Start
Jackie Yates Hair Restoration Specialists helps men and women correct their scalp symptoms like flaking, itch and excess shedding. They also treat guests whose hair loss has progressed to the point of requiring restoration. Jackie Yates can diagnose any Thyroid contributions to your Thinning or Hair Loss Challenge. Most people, over 30 of the 62 million Americans don’t even know if they have Thyroid issues that can cause hair loss. Preventive Diagnosis may start you on your path to healthier scalp and hair. The Thyroid is consider the master gland of metabolism, and produces several hormones. Triiodothyronine (T3) is the chief hormone at the cellular level, Thyroxine (T4) which is converted to T3 before it reaches the cells, they help oxygen get into the cells for the body to produce and use energy. There are two types of Thyroid concerns Graves' Disease which is more common in women and most frequently appears between the ages of 20 – 30. In Graves' Disease autoantibodies bind to the thyroid gland and cause the thyroid to overproduce thyroid hormone. This condition is known as Hyperthyroidism. Some Signs for you to check are hair loss, brittle hair, rapid weight loss, anxiety, panic attacks, Palpitations, fatigue, diarrhea and felling hot or sweating more than usual. The second is Hashimoto’s Disease or Hypothyroidism in which the antibodies react against proteins in the thyroid causing gradual destruction of the gland and it’s abilities to produce hormones the body needs. Symptoms of Hashimoto’s Disease symptoms are hair loss, loss of hair from the outer part of the eyebrow, fatigue, exhaustion, depression, moodiness, sadness, difficulty concentrating or remembering, sensitivity to cold, inappropriate weight gain muscle and joint pain, and brittle finger nails. The sad part is our medical professionals only give us an average of our T3 and T4 hormone levels without taking the time to see and understand the concerns from the side effects that are happening to your bodies. And men this is not just a woman’s disease you are as much if not more susceptible. If your doctor runs a TSH Test a number under .3 can indicate possible hyperthyroidism; over 5.0 is considered potentially indicative of hypothyroidism; Don’t just accept “normal” as a result. Ask for the actual number and utilize your symptoms that are happening to your body as a direction for the best Thyroid Health for you.
