"Causing hair Loss and hair Pulling Doctors are less likely to recognize that stimulants can cause hair loss. hair loss, of course, can be especially humiliating and disfiguring for children. In addition, some children taking stimulants will obsessively pull out their hair, even denuding their eyebrows or scalps. Causing Skin and Joint Disorders Skin rashes can also occur. On rare occasions they can become severe and life threatening, sometimes as a part of dangerous hypersensitivity reactions that involve other organs of the body."

"I wasn't ashamed of the hair loss, but I also didn't want to become the focus of attention. My first wig was cut in a short, curly style. I've been wearing my hair the same way ever since." Identification and Centrality In the week leading up to her surgery, Erica updated her Bliss List. "For the next seven days I bombarded myself doing the things I most love," she says. "I swam. I took nature walks and surrounded myself with natural beauty. I went up into the mountains for a day of skiing. Every day I visited with another of my closest friends."

"Pitta hair and skin are easily recognizable. The hair is usually straight and fine, red, blond, or sandy in color, and tends to gray prematurely. Baldness, thinning hair, or a receding hairline is also a sign of strong or excess Pitta. The skin is warm, soft, and fair; it does not tan easily and often burns without tanning at all (particu- larly if the hair is fair and fine)—this gives Pittas another reason to stay out of the sun, which is their natural bent. It is also highly typical for Pitta skin to be marked with many freckles and moles."

"There is no safe hair color product. The very method by which they operate means they contain solvents that allow dangerous chemicals to be absorbed through your scalp, where they enter your bloodstream and affect internal organs. There has been quite a bit of research on this, and people who use hair color products are, in fact, compromising their long-term health for a short-term hair color change. The great skin cream con Skin creams and lotions are also a con."

"Deficiencies and excesses of minerals are more readily observed in a hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (TMA) than in a blood analysis or urinalysis. Therefore, a TMA is often an earlier indicator of a trend towards health problems (physical or psychological) than is a blood analysis or urinalysis. This fact is very important, especially when considering a disease prevention or health maintenance nutritional supplement program. Symptom Clusters Quite often, people experience a health problem as one of several problems that occur in clusters."

"Pediculosis is the medical term for lice, which can affect the head hair or the genital hair. It is transmitted through bedclothes, touch, and genital contact. Over-the-counter topical treatments (Nix, Rid), which use pyrethrin-based ingredients, are generally safe. LINDANE The most commonly used prescribed medication for these problems is lindane (Kwell). Doctors apparently have not yet figured out that it doesn't work and has generated some safety concerns. Over the past few decades the effectiveness of lindane has been decreasing because of the emergence of treatment-resistant lice."

"In another study of the association between mercury and heart attack, researchers used hair analysis to measure mercury levels in 1,833 men. Their experiment showed that men with the highest mercury levels had twice as many heart attacks and almost three times as many cardiac arrests as those with lower hair mercury content. All our enzymes require specific minerals to carry out their functions. Heavy metals gum up the works. For instance, mercury intrudes in an enzyme system and blocks the ability of certain enzymes to utilize manganese or other nutritional minerals. The enzyme dies."

"This increased production of D affects the production of collagen in skin, the growth of sweat glands, hair follicle life-cycles, and muscle and bone. The positive effects of sufficient vitamin D on hair follicles and sweat glands enhance your cooling efficiency during exercise. The fuel burned during exercise varies with the type of exercise. During short, quick activities such as sprinting and power lifting, the body uses glucose."

"So I traded in my white shirt and tie for fatigues and long hair and spearheaded a number of anti-discrimination and anti-war efforts. Then, in 1969, Dr. Richard Alpert, now known as Baba Ram Dass, returned to the United States from a long trip to India to become one of the major teachers of Eastern thought and meditation in this country. His father was one of the founders of Brandeis and when Ram Dass returned, he gave two lectures in a class I was taking in the Sociology Department. Ram Dass was quite the sight in his robe and sandals with a big beard and long hair."

"He had peaceful eyes; thick, dark, curly hair; and an equally thick and very full beard that covered most of his face. He was dressed in an ensemble of loose-fitting garments, all white, which were almost indistinguishable from one another—already in contrast to the Levi's and T-shirts that were the uniform for most of the people in the room. One thing was certain: This man was not a "local." But that wasn't what had drawn our attention. Through the combination of his garments, hair, and beard, this man immediately drew a powerful response from the people in the room."

"An evaluation of heavy metals may begin first with a hair evaluation. hair testing has been shown to be a reliable indicator of the body's level of heavy metals. hair testing is inexpensive and can provide additional information on the mineral status of the body. hair testing, however, should not be the only method used to diagnose heavy metal toxicities. Urine challenge testing has also proven to be a very reliable way to test for heavy metal toxicity. I have found urine challenge testing to be more sensitive and more specific than hair testing."

"This case clearly illustrates the dynamics of latent copper excess that is only seen over time in two or more hair mineral analyses. It also illustrates how copper can be eliminated in stages from tissue storage. Adolescent Behavior and Emotional Problems This case illustrates the role of copper excess in exacerbating behavior and emotional problems in a very bright 13 year-old girl. One year prior to this tissue mineral analysis, the girl began running away from home. She continued to perform well in school, but home problems got worse and worse."

"It is also quite common for excess copper to be 'dumped" and eliminated from cell and tissue storage in conjunction with the breakup of the calcium shell. In a hair TMA, these phenomena of a breakup of the calcium shell that is accompanied by a copper dump are reflected in substantial increases of both calcium and copper. I have seen cases in which the calcium level (ideal level = 42 mg/%) has increased from an initial high level of 110 mg/% to 600 mg/% and then a subsequent increase again to 1300 mg/%."

"Home Remedies GUM IN HAIR: Smearing peanut butter on hair that has gum stuck in it helps with the gum's removal. STICKER AND INK REMOVER: Same deal—just smear peanut butter on surfaces containing unwanted ink and stickers and they should come off! Throw Me a Lifesaver! HEART HEALTH: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a qualified health claim for peanuts in 2003: "Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces of most nuts, such as peanuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease."

"Because he was very allergic to cat hair, I had to recommend that they find another home for their cat. When the cat was gone, and when Christopher began to avoid his allergenic foods, his neurological problems improved suddenly and dramatically. In less than three months, he had much better interactive language, improved eye contact, smoother coordination, and less bowel dysbiosis. Within one year of his first appointment, he was fully conversant, and had suddenly become very popular at school."

"While in their "hair" identities, they brainstormed what qualities would most please them in a shampoo. Some wanted a powerful cleanser that would root out dirt from the scalp. Others, fearing for their split ends, asked for a milder formula. In the end, the human "hair shafts" settled on a new shampoo that would automatically adjust to every hair need. Silkience, the product they invented, remains one of the leading shampoos on the market.5 MINDS WITHIN MINDS Force-fitting is an important principle, but it hardly explains even half the phenomena associated with what I call Model Thinking."

"The omega-3 s are reported to increase vitality and contribute to smoother skin, shinier hair, softer hands, smoother muscle action, the normalization of blood sugar, increased cold weather resistance, and a generally improved immune system. Omega-3s are also important for visual function, development of the fetal brain, brain function in adults, adrenal function, sperm formation, and the amelioration of some psychiatric behavior disorders. It may take three to six months after starting flax seed oil supplementation to see results."

"It is easy to make both flat ribbon "noodles" and super-thin angel hair "pasta" with this clever tool. This and the mandoline are primarily for higher-end cuisine preparations. MANDOLINE A most versatile kitchen tool, the mandoline is simple to use and will perfectly slice veggies and fruits thick or thin. With the switch of a blade, you can instantly julienne, grate, or shred. Essential for making vegetable "pasta" for live-food lasagna and other wide "noodle" dishes."

"A high soy intake and potentially lower level of LH increases the probability of estrogen dominance in men, contributing to hair loss, swollen and cancerous prostates,34,35 and insulin resistance. Dorris Rapp, MD, a leading pediatric allergist, asserts that environmental and food estrogens are responsible for the worldwide reduction in male fertility.36 For women, female children fed the estrogens in soy formula and products hit puberty early, sometimes as young as age 6 to 8."

"This versatile sea-vegetable is also widely used to maintain healthy skin and hair. Kelp's most dramatic application is its ability to neutralize heavy-metal pollution and radiation in the body. Algaes CHLORELLA AND SPIRULINA Chlorella and spirulina are two of the most nutrient-dense foods known, and easily qualify as whole, perfect superfoods. They have a balanced complement of protein (60 percent), carbohydrate (19 percent), fat (6 percent), bio-available minerals (8 percent), and moisture (7 percent)."

"Increasingly, according to The New York Times, "some physicians worry that children are at higher risk of early puberty as a result of the increasing prevalence of certain drugs, cosmetics and environmental contaminants, called 'endocrine disruptors,' that can cause breast growth, pubic hair development and other symptoms of puberty." Devra Davis told me that "pediatric endocrinologists have actually proposed defining breast growth in a six-year-old black girl and a seven-year-old white girl as normal."
