Re: Question about stretch marks - Hair Loss & Nutrient Deficiencies
- Anna A.If you are losing your hair, you might want to look into celiac disease as a possible cause. Two types of hair loss are associated with celiac disease: 1. alopecia diffuse - where the hair is falling out throughout the scalp, 2. alopecia areata - where the hair is falling out in sharply defined areas. Both come from nutrient deficiencies. Alopecia areata - zinc deficiency. Alopecia diffuse - biotin, iron, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids.If you have one of these, either you are not eating what you need or your body is not absorbing it properly.http://www.glutenfreeworks.com/symptomology.php has a list of symptoms and Cleo Libonati's book "Recognizing Celiac Disease" is worth checking out. It tells which nutrient deficiencies lead to which symptom and the food sources that are highest in those missing nutrients.
