Did you ever notice when you are looking at a person's forehead or yourself, how big it maybe?
If so have you been self-conscious about it or feel ultra self-conscious moving forward. Have you changed your hairstyle to luscious locks or bangs around your face?
Did you know that your forehead would provide you with clues about your health?
At times we take for granted or hate things about our bodies that can hold the most valuable clues about our health.
For example, the extra weight you might have put on around the middle can be a big clue for blood sugar imbalances, toxic exposures, chronic stress, and cortisol hormone dysfunction.
Or weight gain in the "lady parts" (aka breast, hips, and butt) strongly correlate with excess estrogen circulating in the body, which can be true for both women and men.
And early signs of gray hair are linked to high stress and low levels of glutathione in the body which is the body's master antioxidant and detoxification nutrient.
When it comes to your ideal health and weight, your body holds all of the answers.
Western medicine takes more of a "let's stop the issue" and take this pill for that approach instead of checking in with the body to understand where it's coming from or what is causing it.
That's why it's so common to get prescribed medication, such as birth control for ance, only to have partially resolved the issue and for something new to pop up. It's like chasing holes in a sinking boat!
This western approach works perfectly in acute and serious situations such as car accidents or catastrophic events when measures need to be taken immediately to stop the bleeding and save a limb or life. But they are not effective for the common chronic health and weight issues that most of us face on a daily basis.
We could spend hours breaking down all the body parts and what clues they hold about your health. Correlating body with symptoms and nerve meridians has been the main focus in eastern medicine practices such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries.
For today, let's just focus on the little nuggets about your health that your forehead might have to share....
Super Clue #1 - Metabolism & Thyroid Function
I first learned about the forehead's correlation with your health status when I started studying thyroid conditions on a deeper level.
Hair loss in the "widow's peak" area of the hairline or forehead points to a sluggish thyroid usually indicating hypothyroidism or Hashimotos
Missing the outer 3rd portion of your eyebrows (also in the forehead region) is another strong clue indicating low thyroid function that should be investigated.
Super Clue #2 - Digestion & Gluten Sensitivity
I was fascinated when I heard Dr. Tom O'Bryan (one of the pioneers in gluten sensitivity research) quotes a study that connected the dots between that size of your forehead and your susceptibility for gluten sensitivity. This also lead me to work directly under Dr. Tom O'Bryan as a Certified Gluten Practioner.
In the study, they found that a large forehead directly correlates with having Celiac's disease and/or gluten sensitivity, so much so that the study states, "This sign along with the presence of another clinical signs and symptoms, should alert a physician to test a patient for celiac disease."
You may want to cut out gluten if you recognize a correlation even though you were never diagnosed as being Celiac but after hearing this it may make sense. If you have a large forehead indication and increased sensitivity or potential autoimmunity related to gluten, you may feel better with gluten being out of your life.
Super Clue #3 - Liver & Detoxification
You may have heard the old-wise tale about how acne in specific areas of the face can collate with your diet, stress, dirty hands, and allergic reactions.
Well, there's actually some truth to this.
According to the nerve meridians used in eastern medicine, the area of your forehead is linked to your major detoxification organs such as your liver, gallbladder, kidneys, and bladder.
Acne on your forehead can indicate a back-up in your body's ability to detox and process toxins or excess hormones, such as estrogen, adequately.
And even more interesting, on an emotional level forehead acne can be related to anger, anxiety, fear, frustration, worry, and grief!
An inflamed digestive system from gluten sensitivity will allow more toxins into your bloodstream, leading to liver overload and then taking your thyroid down with it.
And the vicious cycle could go on and on and on.
Next time you look into the mirror, take a closer look at your forehead to see what it might be saying about your health.
If you notice any of these clues that I mentioned, you'll want to...
Do a food sensitivity and gluten reactivity test to verify if these are issues for you
Test your thyroid to see if your thyroid hormones are in optimal ranges
Boost your detox capacity with some high-quality liver support supplements and naturally detoxifying food such as beets, dandelion greens, and cruciferous vegetables.
You can learn to love the size of your forehead because of the valuable insights and empowerment it's given you about your health.
And as many of my clients have experienced, it may not be possible to change the size of your forehead but you can learn to appreciate the health knowledge it has to offer and it is possible to get your thyroid, digestion, and detoxication back on track so you can have your luscious hair and clear skin back.
