For a number of reasons, female hair loss is very different from hair loss among men, typically known as male pattern baldness. While men tend to lose hair in a specific pattern from areas of their scalp, women tend to experience a thinning of hair all over their scalp.
How female hair loss is different from men’s hair loss
The fact is that women rarely go bald or get “the cue ball appearance” that is commonly seen in men, and instead experience the sort of hair loss that is usually very different from male baldness.
Everyone knows someone who always seems sick. Falling ill is something that happens to everyone at some point however, strategic preventive care can keep you from getting sick in the first place. Simple actions can keep your body fighting fit and here are four reminders that can help you stay on track.
1. Listen to your Cravings
Eating right is important but “eating right” is also about the variety in your diet, not just the quality of food. Generally, if you get a strong craving for something it is because you body is suffering from a deficiency.
People who have been vegetarians for years may find themselves craving a big juicy steak. This doesn’t mean they want meat, it usually means their body needs more iron.
If someone is craving a calorie dense food, especially one containing cheese or heavy cream it can be your body asking for more fuel.
Craving a pure protein like eggs, chicken or fish could mean that you need a little more protein in your diet and craving something like bread, pasta or crackers hints towards a lapse of opioid petides–these amino acids target your endorphin receptors, which you definitely want active.
I love talking about bowel movements. No, really. I’m not trying to be gross
here but if more people would openly discuss their bowel habits, we might be a healthier society. Not only can constipation make you physically sick, it can also contribute to poor mental health. Read on.
What is Constipation?
Constipation is medically characterized by the inability to have a bowel movement more than 3 times per week. Are you kidding me? If you’re only going to the bathroom 3 times a week, you’re incredibly constipated! But, since nobody talks about what goes on in the bathroom, hardly anybody knows this.
What Can Poor Oral Health Lead To?
Poor oral health can be linked to other illnesses, with recent studies finding that infections in the mouth can wreak havoc in other parts of the body. If you have poor oral health, you could be exposing yourself to cardiovascular disease, diabetes or Alzheimer’s.
This is why it is so important to pay close attention to any oral problems that you may experience, as even the most banal symptoms could be an indication of heart disease or leukaemia.
One of the most common oral health problems is periodontitis, which is an infection of the gums. Long-term periodontitis cannot only lead to coronary heart disease, but also atherogenesis, which is a condition that causes plaque to form and block the arteries. If you have severe periodontitis, your risk of developing atherosclerotic plaques increases by a significant amount, which often leads to heart attacks, as well as strokes.
