Before you start getting fake nails and hair extensions, my recommendation would be to explore more of an inside-out approach, and see if we can restore any nutritional or biochemical imbalances. This will have a far-reaching positive impact, and not only address thinning hair, or broken skin, but also help to make you healthier, which could add quality years onto your life.

So, what does our body need to look and stay healthy?

Great food, nutrients in abundance, hydration, digestion, sex hormone balance, liver, healthy thyroid and kidney function, and stress at low levels.

When our body has all these factors in balance, and nutrition optimised, the body can work as it should and the raw materials are in place for nails, skin and hair to be strong, with a radiant glow.

Here are some common beauty concerns and their nutritional links.

Going in with a multi-pronged, holistic strategy when it comes to addressing any concern is recommended. By all means ‘fix’ the concern externally if you can, but it’s also important to address the route cause behind these symptoms as your body uses these symptoms as a way of communicating potential imbalances which if left unaddressed, could lead to other health or beauty concerns.
