Common Questions and Answers about Omega 3 and gray hair


327385 tn?1378364331 I bought it, put globs of it in my hair and combed it through and left it there overnight. The next morning my hair looked so much better. I didn't even have to wash it! It was shiny and healthy looking. The next night I put more in and washed it out the next morning and it made a huge difference. I put more in it after I styled it and it's amazing.
Avatar f tn My female cat has started licking off her hair on her paws and legs and possibly is starting on her belly - they are long hair and it's kinda hard to tell until a definite bald patch appears. This has been happening since before Christmas. At first I thought it was due to the loss of her beloved "Cat tree" but I got her a replacement - although I'm not sure she likes it near as much.
440193 tn?1293814117 Also, the fact that some of my hairs are turning gray on just the right side also suggests that this could be caused due to lack of blood flow because if you don't have enough of certain nutrients, then that can cause your hair to turn gray, and if you think about it, if your blood isn't flowing or if the blood flow is significantly reduced through one side of your scalp like that, then that side isn't going to be getting those essential nutrients regardless of how much of those nutrients you h
6322039 tn?1380731598 I'm thinking about adding it every other day. I also take 2000 IU vitamin D, Omega 3 and a probiotic, plus a digestive enzyme, because I don't absorb nutrients adequately... I'm also on weekly vitamin B-12 shots because I have Pernicious Anemia, and I take calcium to help build bone, selenium 200 mcg and magnesium 200 mg/day. You might want to ask your NP about selenium... Studies show that selenium is instrumental in the conversion of FT4 to FT3.
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.

Avatar n tn I have had bad anxiety for the past 3 months that started with my job and has moved to my health as every little thing seems to make me think I am dying. I do ask that you all try this as I noticed it a week ago and have been keeping a close eye on it ever since. Pay close attention when you are doing something you love, such as eat ice cream, play video games, read etc... do you notice that it goes away until you start thinking about it more?
Avatar n tn Regarding the hair loss, when I started going through menopause at age 47 I would find a hair ball in the shower. Lasted for a while and then stopped. I've read that hair loss can be attributed to a lack of estrogen. So not sure if you're at that age or not. Hair loss is also a symptom that some people with lupus deal with. I've had some estrogen issues just recently and have noticed my skin is a lot drier than usual, probably a result of the lowering estrogen.

Avatar n tn Only thing was omega 3 and salmon made fresh daily by her daddy. She went out did her thing and daddy carried her in because her legs are weak. He noticed she peed on her bed . I didn’t like that and she usually attacks my feet when I leave . She didn’t but i had to return and then she did so i was ok she is acting normal. I had to babysit my granddaughter and my husband was home he said she threw up and he cleaned it up and her. He had to go bathroom and when he came out she was gone.
Avatar f tn Abbey is long hair gray and white, and Lucie is a main coon with a fluffy coat. I usually buy the hair ball formula food but sometimes forget. They say if they are indoor cats to grow some grass for them to aid in their digestion The gals are into brushing and when I say brush they both come running. It took abbey a long time before she would allow brushing. Finally now she does. I guess its because her coat is always snarled and it pulls. She is a real hard one to keep looking good.

Avatar n tn Increase your intake of Omega 3 rich foods and supplements. Some people find limiting nightshade vegetables help but I have avoided that. Reduce the chemicals you use or are near. Stay out of the sun and away from fluorescent lights. Invest in a good heating pad. Learn to say no. Good luck with everything.
Avatar n tn What I found extremely helpful and got me to STOP this insanity once and for all is to take Omega-3 fish oil AND Magnesium and Calcium and Vitamin C (Ester-C) everyday. Also, I lowered my consumption of sugar since I found aggravates the problem. I also started working out and doing yoga to help my stress and this I found theraputic. So to everyone suffering from this, don't feel guilty about this problem!
Avatar n tn Magnesium glycinate or taurinate can help the muscle twitching and anxiety and migraines. (Google for magnesium and either migraine or anxiety for articles.) Omega-3's can help stabilize the mental health for fish oil and anxiety. (Google for fish oil, anxiety.
429155 tn?1205676864 THREE WEEKS PLUS. Sunday 16/03/08. Well 3 weeks and 3 days have passed, I have since returned to work. I find keeping occupied is the best thing, but the fatigue and the pain in arms and legs are real bad some days. WARNING. I had read that symtoms can return at anytime, well that seems to be the case, I ache all over today, ( same yesterday ) and my skin feels as if I have rolled in some stinging nettles, arms and legs in particular.
Avatar f tn Reduced swelling reduces pain, allowing dogs to stay more active and use muscles, which helps prevent loss of muscle mass. I would go for Omega 3 supplements, plus Glucosamine and Chondroitin (I have forgotten the exact dose of Glucosamine/Chondroitin per pound of the dog's weight, but I give my 28lb dog the max. dose for her weight which is 500mg Glucosamine, and 200mg Chondroitin, so maybe you can calculate from that....

Avatar n tn I too had this problem. What is really needed when there are skin irritations is Omega 3, 6, and 9. You can get the pills at the health food store. Try to get one that is not made with fish oil. You can also find them here: www.********.com. I also purchased a skin brush from vitacost. I brush my legs and entire body before going to bed. This has worked wonders. Hope this helps.

Avatar n tn This time for 2 years she had a relapse 3 times a year-- when she was stressed and developed high fevers. She had all kinds of diagnostic tests--tested negative for everything--except that her IgA for autoimmune disease was high. When she is stressed and near her period she gets canker sores in her mouth (we thought it might be bechets), followed by a high fever due to some respiratory illness.
Avatar m tn We decided not to have the PDT surgery and have continued with a course of Cyclosporine 2% 3 times a day, Tacrolimus 3 times a day, and Equate Artificial tears and Clear Eyes severe dry eye ointment from Wal-Mart.I wish I could offer something new but that seems to be all we can do at this time. Have you seen anyt improvement in Blu's eyes as a result of the new diet? I have given the Boys omega 3 fish oil 1000mg twice a day but have not yet altered their diet from that of Purina Benefil.
Avatar n tn I do have mildly high blood pressure so I do watch my diet and exercise. Recently I broke my wrist snowboarding and about 3 days later I started noticing the palpitations again, more often and stronger...often when I sit or cross my legs at my desk. I have not noticed it when I lay down. I am not taking any meds and was really getting concerned until I found these threads. I'm wondering if I should just bite the bullet and get on BP medication... Here is the other thread: http://www.
288415 tn?1231634102 I have done the vinegar drops and the hair dryer into the ear. Nothing has given me more than very temporary relief. I just stumbled across this site that looks to have a potential diagnosis/solution. ( They call it Chronic Eczematous External Otitis and recommend prescription ear drops called DermOtic Oil. I have no idea how good the info is, but I'm going to check it out.
Avatar n tn I started a really stressful job about 3 months ago and have developed this and a strange lower-eyelid twitch in my left eye, so I assume they're both stress related. I'm gonna drink a beer and calm down.
Avatar f tn I never really felt any better though and so the only thing that happened was that any time I told someone I did not feel good, they thought it was all in my head. Little by little, I lost muscle strength and became more and more fatigued. My hair started falling out, I had some joint pain, etc. all my lab work kept coming back normal, however, so no one thought anything was really wrong with me. This past January, I was under a tremendous amount of stress.
Avatar n tn I while ago I had a bout of strange fevers off and on for like a year or so about every 2-3 months....fever for like 3-4 days and nothing else really. About 3 weeks ago I had a really bad sore throat and a huge ulcer in the back of my throat. I am beginning to think that this is gastro or immune system related. Let me know any thoughts.
