My husband has severe hair loss and difficulty falling asleep. I am not sure if this is due to his stressful career. Please advise.

Stress is defined as a response to conditions and events, both routine and out of the ordinary. No one can completely escape the effects of stress. 

 

Stress depletes the flow of oxygen, which cells need for maintenance and health. It might be the main culprit of hair loss and insomnia in this case. Make time for leisure activities and plan a day out with the family to relax the body and mind. A good laughter is an excellent way to help relieve stress. 
 
Diet also plays a vital role in stress management. Low-fat, high-fiber and carbohydrate-rich meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables may be helpful due to increased production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood. Avoid caffeine, tea and alcohol several hours before bedtime as these beverages are stimulants that may disrupt and affect the quality of sleep. Relax before bed – reading or simply enjoying relaxing routines can make it easier to fall asleep. 
 
Your husband may consider supplementing his diet with vitamin B complex that aids in nervous system function, reduces anxiety and immune system damage as well as improves brain function. Other nutrients of value are magnesium and zinc. Magnesium may help promote sleep quality by relaxing the muscles and soothing the nervous system. As for zinc, it strengthens the root of the hair, thus beneficial in preventing hair loss. These important minerals (magnesium and zinc) are best combined with calcium, vitamin D and manganese for maintenance of healthy bones, hair and nails.
