  • Going bald? Here are five types of food that fight for your follicles
  • Have you recently noticed that your hair is getting a lot thinner? Or, even worse you've found, a few bald spots? You could be suffering from an autoimmune disorder of your hair follicle, called Alopecia Areata (AA).

Because women are actually at a higher risk of developing AA! Symptoms can show as early as in your 20's. Chances are, if someone in your family suffers from AA, you are 25% more likely to develop it too. An autoimmune disorder is when your body doesn't recognize the difference between your healthy body tissue and diseased cells.

It's not yet known what causes AA. But some studies suggest that mineral deficiencies (Vitamin D, iron and zinc), genetics, diet and exposure to heavy toxic metals could be the culprit.... ››› more
