Natural Radiance - RX-Dandruff
By Leigh Eising
There are bad hair days and then, as in the case of dandruff, there are really bad hair days. Dandruff can torment your scalp—making it itchy, irritable, and excessively flaky—and create some rather embarrassing social situations.
With dandruff sufferers, the scalp sheds dead skin cells at an accelerated rate, resulting in flakes or scales. Doctors haven’t nailed down what causes dandruff yet, but triggers such as diet, stress, cold weather, poor health, and excessive use of hair products can provoke it. The true culprit, however, may be the oil-eating fungus Malassezia. Although it also dwells on healthy heads, this fungus thrives in dandruff sufferers, feasting on the hair’s oil and dramatically increasing the skin cells’ turnover rate.
Natural remedies for dandruff abound. Experiment with the following options, and see what works for you.
Tea tree oil: Many all-natural dandruff shampoos contain tea tree oil, a potent antibiotic, antiseptic, and antifungal agent.
Zinc: This important mineral, found in some dandruff shampoos, helps regulate oil glands, promotes healing, and supports the immune system.
Omega-3 fatty acids: Found primarily in coldwater fish (such as salmon and herring), and walnuts, as well as oils of canola, soybean, flax, and hempseed, omega 3s support normal skin functioning and may protect against dandruff.
B vitamins: Just as important for healthy hair as omega 3s, you can find these vitamins in dark leafy greens, whole grains, soybeans, avocados, bananas, and, of course, supplements.
Eastern treatments: Dandruff responds well to acupuncture and acupressure, as well as yoga headstands, all of which improve circulation.

We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment.
