Hair loss may happen when hair follicles are starved of blood, a cold condition in the capillary beds. Capillary beds of the skin tend to constrict when skin temperatures are cool as in hypothyroid. Hair loss may be secondary to chemotherapy. Hair loss may be hormonal. Pitta type hair loss occurs in "hot headed" individuals. Blood rushing to the brain can cause a heat condition and oily scalp that ultimately leads to hair loss.
Disclaimer: Conditions such as 'Hair loss' that cause tissue changes could be serious and should be checked by a medical doctor.

Symptoms Tell A StoryThe first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances, showing you where your body is weak. Specifically, they reveal the doshas & qualities that may have become aggravated. If you notice a quality or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food in relation to qualities (gunas). By eating an optimal diet that balances your gunas, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.

His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion.
