HAIR: Your Crowning Glory

HAIR: Your Crowning Glory

Where has all of the hair gone?

Back in the 60’s when I was growing up, it was all about hair. Hair this, hair that. Hippy hair, afros, beards, locks, … hair every where. Men’s hair styles were bizarre by anytime standards. It was like about freedom to grow your hair. 50 years later, things have settled down a bit and hair styles are a little more conservative. Even bald is considered cool.

Well, it looks good on some guys, while leaving others looking old.

But, hey, if you really want to keep your hair, then you have to feed your body. Genetics and certain conditions aside, many heads of hair, can stay there, if the person if the owner consumes the right nutrients. Namely, protein and micro-nutrients.

One formula described by Naturopathic Doctor, Logan Sisk, is to ingest the amino acid cysteine and vitamin C to stimulate hair growth. Logan described how this formula re-started fur growth in his old cat. I myself have been taking vitamin C for decades and have eaten plenty of eggs (full of cysteine). And aat age 61, I still have a full head of hair.

I have also heard (good) “hair-raising” reports where people who ate high protein diets, like Atkins and ketogenic, started growing hair again. These high protein diets tend to:

  1. Reduce the intake of grains and sugars, which inhibit the body’s ability to produce growth hormone and regenerate; and
  2. 2. supplies the needed proteins, like cysteine to build hair.

This high protein diet or formula might not work for everyone. But, I almost guarantee that you will look and feel better by cutting out the processed foods full of starches and sugars.

Start with a couple of eggs a day, or 100 mg of the amino acid cysteine and 300 mg of vitamin C. Stick with it for three weeks and see watch for the results.
