My husband and I have started eating more omega-3 fats. We now take a spoonful of freshly ground flaxseed daily. We eat salmon and English walnuts several times a week to improve our health.
As a result of these changes, my hair is regaining its original color. I was a redhead, but it had turned blond. It is now becoming red again. I am 85. My husband had black hair when he was young, but he has been getting gray. His hair is now showing more black. He is 86.
Has anyone else consuming omega-3 fats reported a return to natural hair color?
Your experience is unique as far as we know. Although omega-3 fatty acids are now considered important for good health, we've found no scientific data to suggest that they can reverse loss of hair color.
These important fats, found in fish oils (salmon, mackerel, tuna), flax, nuts (especially walnuts) and dark-green leafy vegetables, are helpful in lowering triglycerides and total cholesterol. They also appear to reduce inflammation, which is now believed to play a critical role in such conditions as heart disease, cancer, arthritis and possibly Alzheimer's disease.
My daughter had a plantar wart, and our doctor said to put castor oil on the wart twice a day and cover it with a bandage. He predicted it would disappear in 30 days. I laughed at this, but it worked.
Of all the wart remedies we have collected through the years, castor oil remains one of the most popular.
For reasons that remain mysterious, a drop of this oil on the wart a few times a day seems to cure many warts. Castor oil on the skin has also been used as a folk remedy to speed healing of bruises.
