I thought of something I wanted too add to my hair topic. Grey hair! I watched Marley and Me this weekend in a lazy moment when lounging on the couch watching something easy and fun seemed like the best possible thing to do. In the movie, one of the marked milestone moments in their marriage was when both Jennifer Aniston and Own Wilson both discovered their first grey hair. A cute moment, I guess, but still not one that our society embrace as the most “joyous” moment, especially for us girls!
Eek! Some of us reading this have never yet had this “maturing” experience, while others of us may be growing grey hair for years- that is beautiful too! No matter what the case, we should keep in mind that we are often told that genetics play a case with “premature” graying hair, but there is much to be said about diet and lifestyle.
Dr. Ann Wigmore, largely credited as being the founder of the modern raw food movement in the Western world, is one of the most documented and famous cases of grey hair reversal. Her gray hair turned right back to its original dark black color after years of having grey hair! She credits this reversal to drinking rejuvalac, which is an enzyme and B-vitamin rich drink made from the water left over from sprouting wheat berries. Ladies— this happened naturally!!! No hair coloring or anything!!
We need to renew the living hair follicle and nourish it with nutrition and healthy blood flow. B essential vitamins, raw fatty acids, and trace beauty minerals such as sulfur, copper and silicon are important to help keep the texture of our hair healthy and maintained at its natural color. Be sure to keep flushing the blood clean with your alkaline greens in your Green Smoothies, have salads containing watercress and spinach, and eat B vitamin-rich hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, burdock root, nutritional yeast, Kombucha (based on a similar principle to rejuvalac), and sea vegetables like nori and dulse. Animal products and especially dairy will not promote luscious texture to our living hair follicle since they are clogging rather than nourishing.
Brrrrrr it is getting cold!! I’m getting some of the Fall coats down from the top closet tonight! The yogis in the house may have noticed some changes in their practice. Remember that this is a normal happening in the yogic cycle, and to not be attached to the way our practice expresses itself. Well have a great start to your week!
