I am losing lots of hair everyday-I have to wear a hair net and cap-could this cause my hair loss-Should I change my job.I am a woman in my mid 40's Thank you.

Hair loss (alopecia) can happen for a number of reasons; however, before making the decision about changing your job, it is important to recognize that there could be other factors causing your hair loss. Take some time to write down some of what you recall about the first time you noticed this condition; had your employer changed the hair nets being provided? Had you changed hair products? What are your stress levels like now as compared to before your hair loss? Do any other co-workers have this problem as well? What medications do you take? By writing all this down, you may begin to see that something did happen that could have played a role in your alopecia occurring.

This information will be invaluable to your natural health practitioner in helping to determine the cause of your hair loss and I would recommend you seek professional help in finding a treatment for your hair loss immediately. Anti oxidant vitamins, found in berries, tomatoes, English spinach are great for boosting the immune system during times of stress. Foods high in zinc and silica are also useful in dealing with hair loss, and can be found in beneficial amounts in kelp and rice bran. Finally, relax, hair loss is really distressing but is reversible, and can often be a signal that it is time to address some other areas in your life such as diet, stress levels and work choices.
