Phytotherapy in the treatment to reduce hair loss due stress and anxiety
Part III: Hawthorn, Ashwagandha
Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna)
Is the ideal plant for anyone undergoing periods of stress and accelerated pace of life as it helps to calm.
Its pharmacological properties are found in the flowers of this plant.
Hawthorn is very useful in case of stress and nervousness, due to its effect as a nervous and cardiac sedative.
*Mixing a combination of Valerian, Passionflower and Hawthorn has been shown to increase effectiveness that if only some of these are taken separately. Together they better reduce symptoms in people who suffer from anxiety or stress.
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)
It is an ancient medicinal herb well known in Asia. It can reduce anxiety and stress, normalizing cortisol levels, thereby reducing the stress response.
Ashwagandha is considered an adaptogen, meaning it can help the body to manage better with either mental and or physical stress as well also as the previously described ginseng
My recommendation is that you always consult your doctor first because each case of stress or anxiety is different for each person and your doctor will know which dose to recommend better.
Controlling stress will also help our hair when the cause of hair loss is just that.
