Don’t want a head full of white hair!
I am only in my early 30s and have a lot of white hair already, what can I do?
CheckCheckCIn: A lot of people see gray hair earlier in life due to genetics, but if you find yourself growing a lot of white hairs in a short period of time or getting white hair earlier in life, it could be due to insufficient qi and blood. Chinese medicine believes hair is an extension of blood and kidney health is reflected in hair quality. People with strong qi and blood and sufficient kidney qi will usually have thicker dark shiny hair. Both men and women who are not healthy coupled with work stress, late nights and mind that is overworked can affect their qi, blood and kidney qi. This can lead to early appearance of white hair. If you cannot adjust your lifestyle, make time to see a Chinese medicine practitioner to fine tune your body. You can also try a tea remedy-
