Not many people enjoy the fact that they are balding. There are things that may not be explained by science and one them is why is it not fashionable or socially acceptable being bald or balding. Are you one of these people who are suffering from hair loss? Thousands of dollars have been spent in medications and treatments in the hopes of growing back hair. Have you spent that much money or close to it? Has nothing worked despite your efforts? Well, then, it is time to try using fenugreek for hair growth.
Fenugreek, the wonder herb. One of the oldest, inexpensive and safest herbal supplements is fenugreek. This herb-plant is popular in countries that know herbal medicines well. These countries are Egypt, China and India. Most fenugreek products produced and sold worldwide come from India specifically in Rajasthan. Other countries that are known to produce this herb are Morocco, Turkey, Argentina, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
In the Indian subcontinent, fenugreek is called methi and used in almost all nationally loved foods. In India, people wake up not to their coffee but to their fenugreek seeds. They regularly take 2 to 3 grams of seeds with warm water to soothe joint and body pains, even before they drink coffee or brush their teeth. They take some more methi in the evening to avoid suffering from constipation.
In China, traditional doctors prescribe fenugreek to cure a host of illnesses including arthritis, asthma, sore throat, gout, acid reflux and indigestion. It is also believed to improve libido and male potency, treat rashes, wounds, boils and eczema.
Today, fenugreek seeds have been found to contain protein and nicotinic acid, as well as other important nutrients such as niacin, potassium and phosphorous among others. It is the protein and nicotinic acid that is thought to help fight balding. Protein rebuilds and strengthens the hair shaft. Even without the mention of fenugreek, medical doctors recommend a protein-balanced diet to avoid hair loss and stimulate the growth of more hair. What western doctors don’t realize yet is that fenugreek has enough protein to restore hair-growing ability.
The herb is also found to contain lecithin, which is a natural emollient that moisturizes and strengthens hair. This substance is in fact found in hair care products to give hair luster, health, length, and shine.
If you are suffering from hair loss and would love to try a cure that is safe and cheap, fenugreek is for you. You can buy the herb from health food stores and Asian stores. Get a bunch of fenugreek seeds and soak them in virgin coconut oil. Allow to settle overnight. In the morning, mix your self-made hair growth tonic, removing the seeds. Apply the coconut oil to your scalp and massage for 5 to 10 minutes. Expect to see early results in just 3 days.
Treating hair loss is just one of the many extraordinary uses of fenugreek. It is said to also increase breast size, build muscles, produce more breast milk, and soothe menstrual and testicular pains. Using fenugreek for hair growth is not a stretch since the herb is known to perform cures that are not within other herbs’ powers.
