An autoimmune disease is a type of condition that occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy body tissues.
An example of an autoimmune disease is Hashimoto's Disease. Hashimoto's Disease is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the thyroid gland and it typically results in Hypothyroidism. This is just one example is an autoimmune disease. Currently, there are over 80 known Autoimmune Diseases.
The exact cause of Autoimmune Diseases is currently unknown though there are a few theories regarding a possible over-reaction from the immune system after an illness, infection, or injury. This hyperactive immune system response begins by correctly attacking the illness, infection, or injury however once the body recovers, the immune system continues to attack healthy cells.
While we do not yet know the exact cause of Autoimmune Diseases, we do know that there are a number of factors that can make a person have a predisposition to developing an autoimmune disease, such as:
As of today, there are over 80 unique Autoimmune Diseases known to medical professionals. These are the top 10 most common Autoimmune Diseases:
While there are a number of unique Autoimmune Diseases, having them correctly diagnosed can be a challenge due to the similarity of their symptoms.
Many Autoimmune Diseases share symptoms such as fatigue, achy muscles, low-grade fever, brain fog, hair loss, skin rashes, skin dryness and numbness/tingling in the hands and feet.
For this reason, it is important to document all of your symptoms over a period of time so that your doctor can assess those symptoms and begin testing.
However, not all hair loss caused by Autoimmune Diseases is due to the damage of the hair follicle. Some of the hair loss experienced may also be due to nutritional deficiencies and/or stress (also known as Telogen Effluvium) caused by the autoimmune disease. In addition, some medications may also impact hair growth.
There are a number of Autoimmune Disease that can cause hair loss and hair thinning, a few of the most common to report hair loss include:
There are a number of ways to prevent and treat hair loss caused by Autoimmune Diseases. First and foremost though, you must be diagnosed and treated by a doctor to ensure your Autoimmune Disease does not progress.
However, a few lifestyle changes you could make include:
Cotton pillowcases can cause some damage to your hair. As you toss and turn in your sleep, your hair will snag and get caught on the rougher fibres of a cotton pillowcase. Overtime, this can cause damage and lead to hair breakage.
Instead of using a cotton pillowcase, we recommend using a satin one. Satin pillowcases are softer, smoother, and provide more slip for the hair. This will prevent the hair from snagging, becoming tangled, and will prevent future breakage.
To best care for your hair and scalp, we recommend using a hot oil hair treatment either once a week or once every two weeks. Hot oil treatments are excellent for nourishing the scalp and hair. By caring for the scalp, you are encouraging faster and healthier hair growth as caring for the hair helps reduce breakage.
Hair growth can be dramatically impacted by nutritional deficiencies which is why it is so important to have your overall health assessed by a medical professional. If you do have any nutritional deficiencies it is important to implement supplements to correct them.
Sleep deprivation can have a very negative affect on the body. Initially may will find that your cognitive and energy levels are impacted but overtime sleeplessness can also effect other bodily functions.
Hair loss can occur when sleepless results in a decrease of melatonin levels as they help regulate the hair growth cycle. In addition, sleeplessness can cause stress and extreme stress can cause hair loss. Hair loss resulting from stress is known as Telogen Effluvium.
A hair growth supplement can play an important role in improving hair growth and preventing hair loss. Hair supplements often contain important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which encourage and support hair growth.
