A lot of people regret that their hair is not growing. As we age, the rate of deterioration of our hair increases. Fixing this problem requires understanding the reason why our body is deteriorating. There are several factors. One is the destruction of DNA over time. There is a limited amount of time that DNA can copy itself in human organisms. Eventually, there are no more copies left, and the body cannot replicate cells. However, a major factor in the rate of deterioration is lifestyle and diet. How you live is going to affect your body’s systems enormously. You can look 90 when you are 50, and you can look 50 when you are 90. The effect is greatly determined by what you are eating.
Some of the major raw food diet spokespeople have identified high consumption of leafy green vegetables with excellent hair.1,2 The chemicals inside leafy greens greatly contribute to a good complexion and long life. They help renew your skin, and promote the growth of new hair. A lot of people in America subsist on a diet chock full of meat, potatoes, wheat, and maybe corn. This has disastrous effects on maintaining long term hair health. If you complain about the cost, one of the most effective ways to get lots of greens is to pick them fresh outside. Some of the great outdoor edibles include dandelion, pine needles, and cedar leaves.
All of these come packed full of healthy vitamins, and unlike what you get at the supermarket, they do not require a big hit to your wallet. The goal, whenever you are shaping a diet for a particular part of your body, is to recognize that all the parts of your body are interrelated. What goes in your mouth is going to affect what is on your head, like it or not. Many people have the misguided notion that a lotion applied to one area will automatically cure your problem. This ignores how the body’s systems must work together to maintain optimum health. Hair growth takes second place if other organs are failing because of poor diet. If your hair is not growing like you want it to, it is probably a sign that something else is not getting what it needs nutritionally.
