Good looks, good health?
It’s often said that our hair, skin, and nails are external tell-tale signs of how healthy we are (or not!). The first obvious signs of nutrition deficiency are of course external – so unhealthy hair, skin and nails indicate that your body needs a nutritional boost!
Good health often is reflected in an attractive, youthful appearance. So you might be tempted to blame ageing and stress for facial lines, unsightly fingernails, or hair loss.
In fact, these flaws can signal underlying health issues, says integrative medicine specialist Molly M. Roberts, MD, of the Institute for Health & Healing, in San Francisco, and president of the American Holistic Medical Association.
“Your Body will start by whispering, then it’ll start talking, and, if you don’t pay attention, it’ll start yelling and shouting, and then you’ve got an illness,” Molly M. Roberts, MD
In the modern world, our diet is often deficient in optimal levels of essential nutrients and in addition, includes foods that inflame our cells and cause a breakdown and even end up tearing apart the collagen, keratin, and elastin that provide supple skin, strong and silky hair and strong, fast-growing nails.
Toxic overload, stress, poor diet and nutritional deficiencies all contribute to lack-lustre skin, dry and brittle hair, and brittle nails that never seem to grow.
One of the neatest things about eating a healthy diet and supplementing with the right nutrients – is your nails, hair, and skin are often the first things to change for the better!
