Hair loss and stressStress can affect the hair in the same way in which it affects other important organs such as the heart. One of the most common causes of thinning and hair loss for both men and women is stress. Physical and mental trauma can cause hair loss and consequent thinning, many times from three to six months after the traumatic event occurred. And looking in your thinning hair or fallen you can not do anything but add stress to stress. The common form of stress, like anxiety, which when left untreated, can have significant effects on our mental and physical health and one of these effects, especially in women, is hair loss. This can also be caused by other medical conditions or excessive use or incorrect use of certain medications, so it is important that you visit your doctor to rule out these possibilities.
Why is hair loss?
Sometimes hair loss occurs for no apparent reason. For example, a disease called alopecia areata affects both men and women and in severe cases, it causes to those who suffer, loss of eyelashes, eyebrows and body hair. The disease is caused by a disorder of the immune system that stops the production of hair from the hair follicles. In some people, alopecia areata is temporary, with a duration ranging from several months to several years. In other people, the condition persists, with improvements and deterioration over time they develop seemingly at whim.
What if your hair loss is due to stress
If your hair loss is caused by stress there are several possibilities to reduce the loss and promote new growth:
Step 1: Identify the stressor. It is certainly easier said than done, but it is important to be able to identify it later stop. Faced with a situation that causes anxiety, your endocrine glands produce adrenaline, cortisol and other hormones. These substances have different effects on the human body, including the reduction of blood flow to the hair follicles. Empirical observation allows us to affirm that a period of time of at least one week of continuous stress reduces the flow of nutrients to the hair for a time sufficient to cause it to fall. Once you have eliminated the source of stress or once learned to cope with more time, the hair will come back very healthy within a month. It could be very helpful to keep a diary of activities in which you are engaged, the people with whom you interact and how you feel about it. Understanding what causes stress and reduce its effect will slow down hair loss over time. You will need to keep a record in your journal at least two weeks, or even longer, to identify any trends and disorders. Try to keep the day a well-defined routine, to reduce the number of variables that may be the cause of stress.

Good for you but the hormones are in the mirena are the same as the pill and norplant. they lie to women and say it works only in the uterus, well how does that make the hair fall off the top of your head?
lots of us have numbness on the left side and can't function the way we use to and suffer from memory loss.
drugs do more harm than good no matter the problem.
the vasectomy video on youtube looks alot safer than giving birth or the abortion clips. there are so many men against abortion and against vasectomy, but they don't know that IUDs abort the baby at 2 weeks
