Oh No not another gray strand!
I found my first strand of gray hair at the age of 18. I tried to hide it with hair color or I would simply pull it out. As I matured I still had that same strand of gray hair. One day a good friend of mine told me that gray hair is due to a lack of copper in the body.
I recently, was reading a Health Newsletter written by Jordan Rubin. The topic of the newsletter was, "Gray Hair." In the newsletter Rubin wrote: Stress is not ruled out, however, is a factor in premature gray. In fact, when the body undergoes physical or emotional stress, the B vitamins and other key nutrients are the first ones to be depleted. Among other effects, a shortage of B vitamins is linked to hair discoloration and graying.
I must say that at the age of 37, I do have more gray hair and I have experienced massive amounts of stress while operating a very busy child care center with employees. It's fun and very rewarding, but sometimes can be very stressful.
After reading Rubin's article, I will be going to the whole foods store to pick up more B-Vitamins to help my body naturally fight off stress and buy more whole foods that contain plenty of B-Vitamins.
Hopefully the gray when come when it is time to come. I am looking forward to my silver glory, but not now!
