Science now has found another link between the graying of one’s hair and stress. Now “genotoxic stress,” or stress from the toxic effects of chemicals or energy in our environment can damage DNA, like ultraviolet light.

Integrated medicine has known about this connection for year and routinely treat and help poeple destress. Applied kinesiology and homeopathy hves perfected the art of relieving the stress from physical, memory, emotional, and situational stres.

When a melanocyte stem cell matures into a pigment producing cell, or melanocyte, it is called differentiation.
