Let’s talk about hair loss. A few common causes of hair loss are nutritional deficiencies, DHT, and an autoimmune issue. But, the most common factor behind these causes of hair loss is stress.

The most damaging type of stress to your hair is emotional loss. But, sustained chronic stress, environmental stress, stress on the body from overtraining, stress on the body from pregnancy, and many other types of stress can affect your hair.

One interesting thing about stress and hair loss is that the reaction is typically delayed. There could even be a delay of one to three months between the time of stress and when you first start noticing your hair is falling out.

To stop hair loss or help prevent hair loss, you must address your stress levels to allow certain body functions to work correctly.

How to decrease stress:
1. Implement good sleeping habits
2. Exercise and do physical work
3. Isolate the cause of the stress and resolve the issue
4. Do Healthy Keto® and intermittent fasting
5. Take vitamin B1

  1. Thank you Dr. Berg. Since starting a Vit B tonic, several months ago, I have really noticed a huge improvement in the quality of my hair and nails.

    • @/ the tonic is manufactured in Germany, SALUS, is the company. Their liquid vit B complex is the one I’m taking. It contains Vit B1, B2, B3, B6, B7 (biotin), B12. I take 20ml daily. I can purchase it in health food shops here in Ireland, you may be able to get online.

    • @A O’B The ingredients dont state whether the B Vitamins are synthetic or natural, and only contains relatively low amounts. It also contains Agave syrup and fruit sugars. But if its working for you….

    • @Acidobay the liquid supplement information sheet states that the liquid consists of raw herbs and natural juice, herbs are organic. The company has been producing an variety of vitamin supplements since 1916. I have taken their liquid iron supplement in the past as it is extremely easy to digest in comparison with iron tablets that are on the market. Their formulas are gentle on digestive system.

    • @A O’B I have trouble with iron too. Currently I take dried beef liver capdules and I seem to be getting enough iron. Thanks for your info

  4. Superb video!
    Trauma is the catalyst.
    Chronic stress is a slow death.
    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
    Peace and blessings!

  5. I work out almost exactly like you are doing lately. I have done this for 2 years and I look and feel great! Totally agree 100%!

  6. 0:10 Different causes of hair loss:
    • Nutritional factors
    • Testosterone forming an androgen called DHT
    • Autoimmune
    • Stress (The Single Most Common Factor)

    0:42 The most damaging stress to your hair, is emotional loss, there’s also sustained chronic stress, environmental stresses, stress from over training, stress going through pregnancy, stress going through some viral infection, stress from lack of sleep.
    1:29 The stress that affects your hair is almost always delayed. One, two or three months before the time of stress and the time you start noticing your hair is falling out.

    2:05 Types of hair loss explained:
    • Telogen Effluvium: Triggered by big stress such as trauma, surgery, even being on certain medications.
    • Alopecia Areata: It’s an autoimmune condition, again triggered by stress.
    • Androgenetic Alopecia: Testosterone turns into the very powerful form of testosterone called DHT which burns out the hair follicles. Stress can worsen the situation. It’s also triggered by insulin resistance.
    • Nutritional Deficiency Causation: Zinc deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, B vitamin deficiency, calcium deficiency. Every single one of these nutrients are affected by stress.

    6:53 If you have hair loss, you must address stress to allow other things to work.
    7:00 How to address stress:
    • Make sure your sleep cycles are handled.
    • Physical work around your house.
    • Stress is always a symptom of something else which means you need to fully resolve the cause of that stress.
    • Keto and intermittent fasting will improve your adrenals and sympathetic nervous system which by itself can greatly reduce stress.
    • Natural vitamin B1.

    Thank you Dr. Berg

  7. learned so much from this video…knowing how much stress can affect not just hair loss but vitamin deficiencies in our body

  8. Always the best and most appropriate advice from an extremely knowledgable doctor. Given in a straight forward and often humorous way. I look forward to receiving the missing pieces for my puzzle. Thank you so much. I wish more doctors were like you !

  9. I got sick this year and ended up losing my gallbladder and it felt like a loss to me because I tried everything to save it but couldn’t. 😔💔 after this all my hair fell out, that’s another loss.All this year losses for me. thank you doc for making this video. I asked for it awhile back.

    • @Jennifer Ann Fox yes, I’ve been told. I was experiencing a lil bit of shedding a week before surgery and after it just came really fast. I was really sad from the outcome of my health and what had to be done. Didn’t wanna lose my gallbladder but it had to be done. Lots of emotional stuff.

  10. Follow up question: I’ve made it thru my intense stress period (insomnia lead to sleep anxiety and daytime anxiety), I do healthy low carb and daily IF. Like you said, my psoriatic arthritis has flared with vengeance in the last couple months (months after the insomnia ended) and I’m also going thru a major hair shed. How long typically until the cortisol resistance get better? I need my body to calm down again… thank you!

  11. When I was going through a very stressful few months leading up to my doctoral dissertation defense, my hair started growing in gray along the hairline quite noticeably! I was about 33 years old. Soon after I successfully defended my dissertation the gray went away and I’m now 44 and it still hasn’t returned!

  12. I couldn’t agree more. I’m a hairdresser with 16 years of experience. When clients start asking me if I change my color formula because they are loosing hair I always go back to what happened 6 months ago. Since I’m a hairdresser which means I’m more a therapist then I would like to be, usually I know what’s happening in clients life and what life stress they been experiencing. We go back to 3-6 ago and sure enough we can find some big stress happening in there life.

  13. This was a very timely video. I’ve been suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome/ME and adrenal fatigue since 2018. In addition, I’ve noticed thinning hair in my temples that might be getting worse. I used to be VERY active (martial artist who trained 4-5 days per week) but unfortunately had to retire from a lot of activities since I can’t engage for long periods of time. Your explanation on weight training that does not stress the adrenals was very heartening. I miss moving around freely and being in better shape, so anything I can do brings me a lot of hope. Thank you for having such a quality, relevant, public (and free!) resource.

    • I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue in the late 90s and I was never satisfied with that diagnosis…especially when so many M.E. sufferers show conflicting symptoms.
      I’m into my third year of Keto and I.F. and I must report that my energy levels are constant and high.

    • @Robert C Lynch Unfortunately, IF is out due some other health issues I’ve been managing. That being said, I’ve been doing keto for about a year and a half, and it’s definitely helped me a lot. I used to crash in the afternoon/early evening every day and sleep for a minimum 3 hours outside of sleeping at night; I still need to rest frequently, but the “naps” are spreading to maybe once every couple of weeks.

    • I had CFIDS in the Nineties, so bad I was totally disabled. I cured it with detoxing my environment, removing all chemicals, and my body with a macrobiotic diet. I am convinced CFIDS is another name for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

  14. It’s amazing how even a little strength training makes you feel healthier and more capable. I finally started doing pullups again. Now my upper body is so solid I feel unstoppable.

  15. Many thanks Dr. Berg ♥️

    I lost both my parents in August 2021, 3 days apart. They were 90 and 92.

    My hair was shedding and falling out for a good 6 to 8 months..

    However, watching your videos helped me immensely. I started focusing on my vitamins & my diet. I just started keto about 15 days ago & I’m doing so much better already! Its actually pulling me out of depression! My hair seems much better already & I have baby hairs. I’m taking hair supplements, & when I’m finished with these, I’m going to
    buy Dr. Bergs 💯💖
