So this is an interesting question, and the question is based on why do we lose our hair? Why does our hair turn gray? What's happening to my hair? Why do we care so much about our hair? So hair, uh, much like skin is a sign of your vitality, your life, your youth. Um, and for a lot of us, when we see our hair at the thinning, uh, when we see, um, you know, signs, involvements, and this happen both in men and women, it can be very disturbing. Uh, for a lot of men, uh, this is that sign that, Hey, guess what? I'm getting older. I'm not as vital as I used to be. And for some women, um, it can be a sign that he goes, What? Um, you know, I'm not supposed to lose my hair, even though many women do lose some of their hair and have a different pattern of hair loss than men.
Um, so, um, the question on this is, what happens? What are the factors here? So if you had to divide and say, What can I do to kind of improve my chances and do everything I can, uh, from a, you know, personal, um, sense, uh, to improve my chances losing hair? The first thing is gonna be dealing with, um, your stress. Uh, stress can lose hair. Stress is proven to, to make hair turn gray. And, uh, you want to try to eliminate stress as much as you can in your life. Um, and that's easier said than done. Um, there's some factors that you can do, and that includes meditation, walks, learning to cope With stress. All of us are gonna deal with stress at some level. Um, and so stress is gonna be important for, for men and women, for hair loss.
The second factor you're gonna look at is kind of trying to improve your aging, um, and how you're aging. A lot of our hair is pre-programmed to die. Um, and this goes through this phase of senescence, which is happens when, um, our hairs and other cells. Um, eventually at some point our body says they're no longer needed and they're gonna go through a pre-programmed cycle to either first turn, gray, white and die. Um, and that's part of almost all of how all ourselves can be treated. So if you want to prolong this process, um, you're gonna wanna do things on a multiple levels. And this is, um, that takes way too long for me to talk about all those factors. Uh, but, um, that includes, um, trying to, uh, delay your aging process to improve your income process. And this, this is things like having healthy habits and exercising and taking the right supplements and, and getting enough sleep.
And again, all these things to, to do that. And you can track your aging process. You can, um, visually sell your aging, and that's another way of improving it. And then the final way of improving your hair loss, it's just gonna be, um, understanding how your hormones work and, um, effectively treating them. You know, for men tends to be a little bit of a simpler process. Um, men are gonna have, uh, at least some of us are gonna have, um, uh, the dht, which can tries for hair at different levels. Uh, our hairs are programmed to, to, to basically ize at different levels depending what our genetic profile looks like. And so if you can sort of put up a barrier, um, I, I consider this almost like a sea wall. Um, and that can be either propecia or sa palmetto or a combination of both.
Um, you can try to prevent this from, um, from causing you to have hair loss. Um, uh, sometimes you get to reversal, but really this is, I think in this case, is prevented it. Uh, for women, it's be a little bit more complex. Some women will have some elements of male pattern hair loss, and some women may have other aspects of it. And really finding out about your hormonal profile is gonna be helpful. Um, just find out what, what are we, we looking at? Uh, there's other factors for hair loss, um, nutritional deficiencies, um, immunologic conditions, um, and de effect patients as well. But I think for most patients, they're gonna be in category one, two, or three, um, which is gonna be, um, aging, hormonal, and stress.
