Such a surprise I noticed yesterday!!

My hubby (have to get used to this name  ) has grey hair since his early twenties..
Grey, and that is completely light grey! Beautiful colour btw..  

But now it comes.... Yesterday I noticed black hairs between the gray hairs.. Astonishing!!
Hans is on his O-Hunter diet since 2 years now and skin and weight  improved enormously, and now his hair is turning black again!!  

What a good diet, new relation, in short a healthier life does to your body and hair!

I will keep an   on his hair...  

Have anyone of you experienced something similar??

Hope to hear some stories!

Wow.  That is interesting news.  I am A (probably Teacher, waiting for results of secretor tests for both) and husband is O (most likely Hunter) who has been complaining about grey and white hairs (age 46).  He was platinum infant/toddler and mixed blonds until aging change.  He has just started his transition toward compliant diet...doesn't realize how fast our transition is going.  We'll keep an eye on this issue also.  We do have pictures of "now" to compare with later.  Your news may inspire him!!

Yessss!  I thought this should happen, and I was waiting on somebody to be on the diet long enough to report.  I'm waiting on my husband's thinning hair to fill in.  After all, if it's in his genes, we should be able to reverse some of that, right?

That is really cool. I wonder if it will work that way on the blood type diet, that one is easier for my husband and myself to follow. I started turning gray in early 30s in nursing school, probably from the long hours and horrible food. I would love to quit coloring my hair but I don't want to be overweight and gray at the same time. Afraid I will look to dumpy.

Cocky,
The good times just keep getting better and better!  I rejoice for you always, with love.  

kittykar1,
I believe there is a lot of power in the BTD.  However, if you want to experience the best of your program, please get your secretor status tested.  Otherwise you will be unsure of if you are really eating for your type.  If you are a secretor, no problem, but if you are a nonnie, many things can change in your food lists and compliancy is even more important.

Regarding gray hair, Chinese medicine views graying hair as depleted kidney yin.  This could roughly be viewed as a type of adrenal fatigue.  Eating for our types will be a big step in lessening the stress on our adrenal/kidney systems and set us up for healing and turning back the aging clock.  Coupled with getting appropriate rest and exercise will carry us a long way in the direction we want to go.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Ribbit,

I for myself have noticed many years ago (I am since october 1999 on the BTD/GTD!!) that my hair became fuller.. Especially on the spots where hair witdraws on both sides of the front.. New hairs started growing there!!    Besides my hairdresser who cuts my hair for more than 15 years now, says that my hair is in great shape, shining and no thinning at all, for a woman of my age  
At the start of menopause, 2 years ago, my hairs became softer, a bit too soft to my taste.. But dying my hair (since many years!) makes my hairs dry and better to style..

One of the advantages, next to dozen of other improvements in my health, of this way of life!!

Lola, I can be greyhaired when I am old (I hope to grow verrrry old on BTD!!) but now for the coming years I prefer the red hairs...

Victoria,
Times are good and getting better once your body is in balance and your mind geared towards optimism!!  

Take care  and stay well!

Cocky

I heard that too Lola.  I picked up some ionic copper at a health expo.  You put it on your hair after rinsing and let it air dry.

Then i must have an excess of copper. i'm 64 and my hair is still black.  Oh, i've got four or five grey hairs...but they came since i was eating lots of bread six months prior to diet. It would be interesting to know more about zinc/copper issues having to do with the hair. My son was born with a zinc deficiency and he started losing hair in twenties....but he is not grey.

i'm just paranoid cause thats exactly what my roommate says to me when i tell her anything about this diet or health. "fascinating, now could we talk about something else?" She comes home from work and sits down next to me and  those are always her first words. "Now please don't talk about food or health, okay?"

So sorry if i was a little suspicious of sarcasam, Lola...i get it everyday. Is this an exlorer trait? do they explore every last nuance of every darn subject until they drive "normal" people to distraction? I guess this is something to explore.

My cousin who is older than me dyes her hair. I think she looks crazy. To top it off she insists on getting a perm for body and then does nothing with it. I come from a family with straight hair. I keep my hair long. I keep it up though (literally). I have yet to dye my hair ever and don't really intend to. I think if your hair is healthy it doesn't matter if it naturally turns because of your age. Sometimes my grandson asks me to dye my hair. I say I'm proud  every gray hair and wrinkle I have. Well maybe not the wrinkles...Aani

I think it's OK to stay gray if you like it. I personally look ugly with the gray/white that is increasing.  I have been using mascara on the hair around my face.  It doesn't have to be perfectly dark, but I try to cover most of the gray.
My husband is almost all white. He looks good in either white or black & doesn't care anyway.
I have grayed slower than other family members, & I'm sure it is due to diet. I'm not into a lot of makeup, etc., but don't accept gray easily when I have/had a beautiful dark brown shade.

Boy what an incentive to stick to the diet, no gray and fuller hair! I thought redheads didn't gray but I started turning gray at 50. I'm proud of every gray hair I've earned but I'm not going to let them show any sooner than I have to.

When I first started the BTD I also noticed a reduction of my gray hair. Now that I have trouble with compliance my head is getting quite white. I do not want to dye as I go daily to the beach, the sun... plus I like the texture of my natural hair.

My hairdresser has recomended I use camomile and tea brew on my hair (cold). The camomile makes it blonder the tea darkens the gray. I have to try it out. I have done so for two weeks but got bored with it just when I was noticing a little change.  

I may one day get around it. I'll post results if I do so.
