Hair Loss: Getting to the root of the problem!


About a year ago I started noticing more of my scalp at the very crown and forefront area of my head. After a small meltdown, I remembered that it was not a slow process. After all, I'd had thick hair for the 34 years I'd been alive. I understand the hereditary factor, but no person in my immediate family had this problem, including my 76 year old mother. After further investigation with my physician, I learned that my thinning/loss of hair was due to prolonged HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE! Never did I imagine this to be a cause. Moral of this story is to not self diagnose yourself. Get to a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. In my case, I was able to save my hair and my life!
