Gray Hair Natural Remedies

Gray hair is not always related to age. It is the process where pigmentation of the hair is lost and the hair appears in various stages of gray. The changes can happen very suddenly or gradually.

Causes of gray hair include heredity, stress, thyroid imbalances, anemia, and B-12 deficiency. Smoking and alcohol also contribute to early graying. Smokers are four times as likely to gray earlier.

Many women, and now men, dye their hair, however, hair dyes can be toxic for some people. Natural Henna may be used to add color, although they are not as long lasting as permanent dyes.

From the natural perspective we want to look at preventing gray hair and gray hair reversal by supporting the thyroid, and helping with anemia and nutritional deficiencies. Homeopathic remedies, cell salts, and herbs can assist. Eliminate other substances that may make it harder to reverse gray hair by stressing the body such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and fast foods.

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) Natural Remedies

Chronic breathing problems from bronchitis or emphysema are a very common problem. Symptoms of COPD include coughing, respiratory infections or shortness of breath with or without mucus or wheezing. Cause can be from second hand smoke, chronic smoking or weakness of the respiratory organs.

Medical treatment for COPD includes inhalers, steroids, or anti-inflammatory drugs. All these can have medium to severe risks and don’t get to the cause of lung weakness.

From the natural perspective the first thing to do is avoid smoke or smoking as well as polluted environments. COPD can also be caused from poor diet which causes excess mucus in the body. Eating for your constitution or body type will help reduce mucus, i.e. if you are a cold person you shouldn’t eat all raw food because it only makes you colder.
