Hi all

I have in recent months started to eliminate animal foods from my diet. So far I am still taking in some dairy mostly in the form of cheeses.

Just this evening I discovered that my small clump of grey hairs have started to spread out!~gasp!!~ Whats a girl to do.

I am 28 and there does seem to be early greying in my moms family but its still freaking me out some Soo I was wondering if any of you saw less grey with a vegetarian/vegan diet?

I don't want to have to color my hair for the rest of my life ya know!

Anyway thanks for your replies

Christina

Most of hte research I have read suggests (or outright states!) that graying is directly correlated to insufficient hydrochloric acid. There are many people who have reversed graying on a raw diet, but what it amounts to is increasing HCL levels which you *can* do independently of diet through supplementation.

An easy way to test is to drink about 6 ounces of beet juice on an empty stomach. If your urine turns pink it means you have insufficient hydrochloric acid. Supplement and once you get it back to normal in theory you'll get your color back.

Ann Wigmore in her 70's was totally gray. She reversed it through diet alone and submitted to several lab tests to prove she hadn't colored it. It went back to jet black. HTH!
