At Images International we see a lot of men and women that are experiencing hair loss and they have been to their doctor for help. Doctors can offer blood testing for hormone levels, vitamin levels and they can get an overall big picture. Sometimes there will be a diagnosis, thyroid disorder, for example. Sometimes there will be no clues, the tests came out fine and yet there is still hair clogging the shower drain every morning.
It is important to know that doctors look at the levels on a wide scale and may only flag a problem when there is a deficiency or a high or low level. Occasionally a trigger for hair loss does not necessarily need to be in the red zone, levels just need to be borderline low or high, or just imbalanced.
Intricate testing and a thorough look at your body as a whole can be found at holistic centers and functional medicine clinics. This line of care knows that all body systems are connected and it interprets how these systems synergistically work together.
There is usually an up front cost and fees for lab work which helps them see exactly what is happening in your body. It can be costly as insurance does not always offer coverage for holistic centers but for some, it can be an appointment that is made when they've hit a dead end with their primary care provider and costs are worth the investment to get to the bottom of their concerns. A tip from one of our clients is that there is a local holistic center that works under an M.D. and so they are able to send blood work through a patient's health insurance which significantly cuts out of pocket costs.
We see men and women that have worked with holistic treatment centers and they are correcting their leaky gut, their vitamin deficiencies and balancing their hormones and the reviews are all positive. They haven't felt better in years.
If you find yourself looking to dig deeper into why you're experiencing hair loss perhaps a reputable functional medicine doctor is worth a shot.
