How To Have Hair For Days

Is your hair dull, brittle…droopy and lifeless?

Pay attention, because it might be telling you to examine your diet and make some changes. Fasting and restrictive diets can have a damaging effect on your hair. So can stress (the worst!), illness, and eating too much sugar. Of course, there are other reasons why you might have problems with your hair. Stress, hormonal changes (both men and women are affected), menopause or postpartum in women, and thyroid problems, can all lead to hair problems, and may require professional medical care to correct.

Put Your Money Where Your Hair Is (And I Don’t Mean Hair Products)

Investing in a good diet is the best way to invest in your hair. When you eat lots of organic vegetables, fruits, and healthy proteins, your hair will show it. Face it: when you’re in your teens and 20’s, fancy hair products can hide a multitude of sins. After 30, though, it’s all about nutrition. Any gaps in your nutrient intake are going to show up in your hair at some point, so make it a priority to make your calories count and eat food that’s good for you. Hair grows an average of ½ an inch per month, so the effects of your healthy diet might not be visible for 60 to 90 days.

Here are more ways to invest in your hair, with a side benefit of improving your overall health:

  • Take Strong & Supple capsule formula. This herbal blend provides deep nourishment to your blood and vital organs like your kidneys and liver. In China, there is a belief that when your blood and organs are properly nourished, you can grow healthy hair. If you suffer from poor nutrition, all available nutrients from your food will go directly to your vital organs, leaving the hair listless, dull, thin, and brittle.  If you’re trying to rebuild your hair, take 2 Strong & Supple capsules two or three times per day. This blend also contains herbs that are rich in natural silica, the building block of connective tissue, hair, and nails. Be consistent when you take Strong & Supple and incorporate it into your daily habits, and you will see results in 60 – 90 days.
  • Are you eating a healthy diet but not digesting your food well? If so, you can support your entire digestive process with Golden Bitters tincture. The herbs in the formula help the digestive tract break down proteins and fats, and help you get the most from the nutrients in your diet. Like the title says, Golden Bitters tastes bitter, but that is one of the reasons why it works so well. The bitter flavor alone sends a signal to your brain to switch your digestive organs to ON, so they start secreting enzymes and all that other good stuff. The easiest (and least painful) way to take Golden Bitters: squirt a full dropper of the liquid into a 4 ounce glass of sparkling water (or a shot glass of plain water) and sip (or down it) before lunch and dinner.
  • Massage your scalp every day. Doing a scalp massage brings fresh blood flow to the area, nourishing the hair follicles with fresh oxygen and nutrients. Use your fingertips and gently massage your scalp until you feel a slight tingling. Do this every day to bring fresh blood and nutrients to all your little hair follicles and you will make them very happy.
  • Once a week, massage your scalp with a blend of Jojoba oil and Rosemary essential oil. Rosemary is antioxidant and rejuvenating. In your palm, blend 1 teaspoon of Jojoba oil with 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil. Rub your hands together to mix, then massage into the scalp. You can leave this on for a few hours, or overnight for a deeper treatment.
  • Another way to support your circulatory system from the inside is to drink An Elephant Never Forgets. This tea contains Rosemary and Ginkgo, which bring fresh blood and oxygen to the scalp, while the other herbs support the heart and blood vessels. It will also get more oxygen to your eyes and brain so you can improve your mental clarity and memory, as well as your hair.
  • Chill out. Not many things are worse for your hair than stress. People get used to being stressed out, so that unhealthy stress begins to feel normal. It’s not, and it will suck the life out of more than your hair. If this is you and you’re maxed out from stress, Daily Calm tea or Take A Chill Pill capsules can help you feel better right away.

Is There A Tea For Weight Loss?

May 16, 2020

One of the most commonly asked questions I hear is, "Is there a tea for weight loss?" The short answer is Yes, there is a tea for weight loss. More than one, actually.

BUT… (you knew this was coming, right?)

Tea alone isn’t a silver bullet. A cup of tea a day in combination with double cheeseburgers, soda, and couch-potatoing your life away, isn’t going to give you the fit, healthy body that you’re going for. What will help you achieve your healthy weight goals are consistent healthy habits: eat clean, move your body, eliminate stress, and drink lots of tea.
