finding myself with two friends, who are loosing hair excessively without any obvious reason (at least in one of the cases) made me look a lot into the causes of hairloss, getting to the – in the end obvious – point and repeated matter of the alkalinization of our body. At the end of most studies regarding countless conditions it comes back down to that. And it applies to hairloss as well. What can be done against hereditary loss of hair might be a different question, I am talking about sudden hairloss.
Our body has to be alkaline to function the way it should. I wrote posts on this topic earlier. If our organism finds itself over acidic it starts to try to combat this acidity attacking our natural reservoirs of calcium and magnesium in order to balance our very own ph level. Which is amongst others our hair, i.e. its follicles. The root will be deprived of its essentials and thus the hair will fall. Which is the case for one of my above mentioned friends (even stress produces excessive acid in our body!). The other one is suffering from hyperthyroidism and does not find the time to cure himself so that the strong medicine the person takes lead to the same, non-alkaline situation and thus to hairloss.
Yesterday I came across a so called remedy for hairloss, which suggests to take every morning on an empty stomach 1/2l of water with the juice of 3 lemons and 1 tsp sodium bicarbonate. This is a proven remedy against cancer or to fight the symptoms of chemotherapy- which has been proven in some cases and studying it seems only logic since cancer cells strive in an acidic environment – but obviously hairloss is also a consequence of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy again causes a toxic and highly acidic environment in the body – so here we go again.
Self-proven study: have the juice of one lime in warm water every morning and I definitely do neither suffer from hayfever, nor heartburn or any other side effects of an acidic body. If you are losing hair in excess try the sodium bicarbonate. There is definitely nothing more alkalizing than that, which has already been proven in 1931 by Otto Heinrich Wartburg in a cancer research. In combination with healthy lemon (which is anti-acidic as well already by itself) it might do wonders. Please be careful with the use of sodium bicarbonate (remember that is in a way a salty component, so attention to heart and kidney conditions!), but 1 tsp on an empty stomach is the widely recommended dosage. 3 lemons to me seem too much, I suggest to remain with the juice of 1 lime in a big mug or glass of warm water. Talk to a naturopath if you are unsure and have one around.
If you wonder about sodium bicarbonate per se have a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_bicarbonate.
Please remember to always use organic lemons, they might look “ugly”, but “ugly” fruits and veggies usually are the better ones since naturally grown.
