Stress and Alopecia: How to Handle Anxiety and Regrow Your Hair

Atlanta GA Hair Restoration Clinic

If you’re under stress, your body will tell you.  Your blood pressure elevates, you might develop headaches, insomnia, heartburn or ulcers. And to top it off, your hair may fall out.  The good news is that with some modification of behavior and environment, you stand a reasonable chance of reversing your symptoms… including the hair loss.

Try one of these tips to help:

  • Practice Breathing. Close your eyes and imagine a rosy, golden light. Inhale the light, counting to four and holding your breath for a couple beats. As you exhale, imagine your stress, worries, anxiety being blown out and dissipating.
  • Try Progressive Muscle Relaxation as a way to alleviate stress and relax your entire body.
  • Get Outside and Walk. Walking outside allows you to breathe fresh air and move your body more freely than walking inside or on a treadmill.  Use the time to meditate and breathe cleansing breaths.
  • Try Yoga. The stretching and posing of yoga along with the practiced breathing is a good way to incorporate several methods of relaxation into one session.

No matter what method you choose, also choose to eat nutritious meals including the vitamins and minerals you need to support your hair, skin, and nails as well as immune health. Salmon, eggs, almonds, spinach, and kale as well as “superfoods” like collagen, flaxseed, and chia seed can all lend the nutritional support you need to help your hair.
