Anxiety and how it affects Hair thinning

Anxiety is often talked about as a mental health issue, however there is very little information out there that says how it affects your body – this includes not only your hair, but also your organs and endocrine system as well as the nervous system.

If you imagine someone at constant anxiety, their heart rate alone would increase due to their fear, and for that to happen, adrenal glands will have to be firing away at full throttle – this over long term, will deplete kidneys and cause aging at a faster rate – this means white hair, as well as hair thinning.

After the hormonal system is affected, it takes some time for it to become an adopted by the body – as a natural state of being – so this no longer remains just a mental issue, as now the body is geared towards staying in this state – so even if the person is simply sitting down with nothing to be anxious about, their body will still be in a state of anxiety, and they will still feel anxiety as a natural state of being – this is when we say the pattern has become an adopted pattern, and changing this requires a lot of effort as you will have to do things that feel unnatural and not normal for your body type until it becomes the new adopted pattern of your body.

When the hormones are affected from anxiety, this also then affects hair and skin quality directly – nutrient absorption can also be affected, which means it further affects skin and hair as this is first to go, if nutrients are low.
