Effective diagnostics of the causes of excessive hair loss and balding EHA – elemental hair analysis

Excessive hair loss is a problem that affects both women and men. Physiologically, we lose 50 to 100 telogen hair (hair in the resting stage) every day. If it’s more than this, we’re dealing with balding, which affects scalp hair, although not all areas of the scalp are equally susceptible to it. From the point of view of a functional medicine specialist, the most common causes of hair loss seen in the clinic are hypothyroidism (including atrophic Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), vitamin and mineral deficiencies (including iron, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin D3), omega-3 deficiency, active viral and bacterial infections (including Helicobacter pylori),

It’s not only diabetics who need CHROMIUM – it’s an element essential for life

What are the causes of high blood pressure?

According to the health statistics of industrialised countries, high blood pressure is no longer a disease that’s associated with obesity. Even slim people are susceptible to it. Officially, 25% of the population aged between 20 and 60 years have high blood pressure. This number rises dramatically among people over 70 years old. These days, this insidious and life-threatening disease is also reported among children. It’s assumed that approximately 8 million people have high blood pressure in Poland. If left untreated, it inevitably leads to heart attacks, cerebral haemorrhage, as well as premature failure or weakening of the walls of the arteries and blood vessels. The widely held belief that high blood pressure can be controlled only pharmacologically is untrue.
