Intro to Lupus and Hair Loss: 5 Easy Things That Make a Difference
Hair loss is a common symptom in those with lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, and organs.
Nearly 50% of those with lupus experience hair loss.
There are several types of hair loss that can occur in lupus.
Discoid lupus hair loss occurs in those with discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), which primarily affects the skin with hair loss in localized areas of the scalp.
Telogen effluvium hair loss is caused by stress, illness, or medication disrupting the hair growth cycle.
Alopecia areata may develop as a complication of lupus which causes patchy hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body.
Lupus can be a complex issue, and it’s important to work closely with your doctor.
Here are some actions you can take now
to promote healthy hair and hair growth.
Lupus and Hair Loss
*****Please note that we are not medical providers and are not giving any medical advice, nor making claims.*****
Here are several actions you can take now to help reduce hair loss and promote healthy hair and hair growth:
1. Clean up your diet and AVOID soy, corn syrup, and mercury(fish):
Many aren’t aware that soy protein is responsible for phytohemagglutinin, which is a plastic-like complex that lodges in the body’s finest capillaries.
Hair follicles and the retina of the eye have some of the finest capillaries, making them easily damaged by phytohemagglutinin.
Soy is used in everything from salad dressing, bread, and protein bars, to biofuel, to the ink that is printed in a book.
Baked goods, fried foods, gravies, sauces, low-carb breads and foods contain soy which you may not even realize you are ingesting. Even grilled foods from your favorite restaurant were probably coated with cooking oil (soy) to keep them from sticking to the grill.
Corn doesn’t exactly attack hair follicles, but many nutritionists will tell you that corn products disrupt so many metabolic processes and more that your body will go into emergency mode to get that disruptor out of the body or store it in the fat cells to not deal with it.
With your body dealing with all the disruptors, minimal to no nutrients are left to build hair or anchor that which is growing.
Gluten-free eating has steered the unsuspecting public into corn based-supposedly gluten free prepared foods.
By the way, a dastardly additive is maltodextrin, which is corn-based.
Mercury is also a disruptor of the body’s metabolic processes and is not just in canned tuna.
Watch out for swordfish, mackerel king, orange roughy, tuna, and even yellowtail.
Got amalgam fillings in your teeth? That’s made with mercury.
2. Eat a nutrient-dense diet:
Because taking care of your body from the inside out is important, you must consume a variety of fruits and vegetables. They provide a variety of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, folate, zinc, and niacin. Inositol helps improve the function of scalp cells, which can be found in nuts, citrus fruit, leafy vegetables, and whole grains.
You must also consume plenty of protein. Protein provides the necessary amino acids to make keratin which is the building block of hair.
Lean meats, beans, fish, eggs, dairy, kale, and asparagus are great sources of protein.
If you are vegan, there are choices, yet stay away from soy. Otherwise, when you see your hair falling, you won’t be able to say we didn’t warn you.
Healthy fats like coconut, olive, and flaxseed provide your body with long-chain polyunsaturated fats and linoleic acids necessary for hair structure. Notice soy oil is NOT on the healthy list.
Avoid refined sugar as much as possible!
3. Exercise regularly:
Exercising can increase blood flow and circulation throughout the body.
An increase in blood flow to all of your cells, allows for more oxygen and nutrients to reach your hair follicles, contributing to healthy hair growth.
4. Scalp massage:
Regularly massaging your scalp helps increase blood flow to your hair follicles and stimulate them.
Gently massage your scalp with the pads of your fingers for 4 minutes each day.
====>In a study of Japanese men, those who did this for 24 weeks had
thicker hair at the end.
5. Use gentle, natural, nourishing hair products:
Only use chemical-free, gentle, and nourishing hair products to nourish your hair and scalp.
Traditionally, rosemary oil has been used to increase blood flow to the scalp. It’s also been shown that peppermint oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and castor oil can be beneficial and promote hair growth.
