Forgot to Mention Being Hypothyroid
[QUOTE=Derpamix;1064384]"I think the chronic loss of copper accounts for the obvious features of aging, such as the loss of elasticity of the skin, hair, and (in Parkinson's disease) substantia nigra, and for the decrease in respiratory capacity."
Copper is poorly absorbed when there is excessive stress. Stress harms thyroid production, and thyroid hormone is crucial for copper absorption.[/QUOTE]
Just after Thanksgiving, it was discovered that I was hypothyroid, however, my hair started turning blond again before i was being treated for my condition. My co-worker noticed it in early October. Last year was incredibly stressful for us with my husband having two cancer surgeries and family and work issues. It was one of the worst years we have had since we were married and I believe being Paleo helped us get through it. Hubby is incredibly healthy despite what he has been through and his Docs were impressed with how an "old timer" came through both ordeals better than men half his age.
Despite these two things, our hair color is returning. I looked closely at my hair again yesterday (I really don't pay that much attention to it) and it is now almost all blond. No dark hair anymore at all where before it was sprinkled with black hair amongst the grey.
