Why Others Fail?

Most medical hair clinics use a very limited form of treatment such as the drug Propecia (Finasteride). This reduces male hormone levels in order to treat hair loss. Unfortunately such medication also reduces sex drive for males and takes at least 6-12 months before achieving visible results. As male hormones are just one of many causes of hair loss, this  approach is very limited.

Minoxidil 5% is another medical approach that only works temporarily. When someone stops using Minoxodil, their hair loss problem recommences, often worse than ever.
Because there are so many different medical causes of hair loss, doctors often focus on treating the disease only. For example, it is common for some specialists to treat hair loss by only treating the patient’s skin disorder. This proves ineffective and only results in a dissatisfied customer.

The Many Causes Of Hair Loss
Hair loss is not only a simple skin or scalp problem - it is also linked with the following factors: poor blood circulation, poor diet and nutrition, stress, emotional shock, an out-of-balance nervous system and endocrine glands, medical disorders and genes. You could say that hair loss is a multi-factorial problem!

External Factors
Sebaceous Glands, Blood Vessels and Dermal Papilla

There are two main causes of hair loss within the skin of the scalp. Excessive secretion from the sebaceous gland and restricted blood flow through the blood vessels both affect the production of healthy hair.

The dermal papilla is the major communication line between the follicle and the body. Because blood passes through the papilla, any blood abnormalities (eg. from drugs) will quickly affect the health of the hair follicle. The dermal papilla is like soil for the hair follicle. A healthy papilla is required for healthy hair follicles.

Internal Factors

Genetic hair loss or baldness is due to the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) acting on genetically-susceptible hair follicles. Testosterone converts to DHT with the aid of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. DHT then binds to receptors on hair follicles thus obstructing the normal blood supply to the follicle and preventing absorption of essential nutrients.

Emotional Stress And Shock
Emotional stress and shock increase the production of five hormones: growth hormone, thyroxine, adrenaline, glucocorticoids and glucagon. All these stress hormones affect blood sugar levels that can cause hair loss. Emotional stress also causes imbalances endocrine gland secretions leading to hair falling out.

Diet and Nutrition
Deficiencies of iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and chromium are all minerals that affect the health of the hair follicle. High levels of copper often leads to dry, brittle hair as well as hair loss. Further, inadequate protein intake and deficiency of essential fatty acids are other factors to consider as possible causes of hair loss.

Medical Disorders
Liver diseases such as Hepatitis and Cirrhosis can cause an imbalance of sugar levels and lead to diffuse hair loss. Kidney problems, Diabetes and Anemia can also cause one’s hair to fall out.

Endocrine Glands and Nervous System
The following endocrine dysfunctions usually lead to hair loss:

  • Pituitary gland hormonal imbalances can cause diffuse hair loss either directly or through their effect on the other endocrine glands. The pituitary gland is controlled by the hypothalamus located at the base of the brain.
  • The adrenal cortex produces small quantities of male sex hormones which cause thinning at the top/front of the scalp in women.
  • Under/overproduction of the thyroid hormones.
  • Deficiency of the parathyroid hormone.
  • Overproduction of glucocorticoids by the adrenal glands.
  • Too little or too much insulin secreted from the pancreas.

All the following can result in varying degrees of hair loss: prescription medications, surgery, high fever, infections, cosmetic hair treatments and products, menopause, oral contraceptives (especially on stopping), post pregnancy, hysterectomy, vasectomy, smoking, food poisoning, over-exposure to radiation, exposure to food insecticides/pesticides and pollutants in the environment.

The Solution
From the information you’ve just read, hair loss is often a symptom of an internal medical problem. However, hair generally doesn’t grow back when doctors only treat the internal disorder. Hair regrowth needs targeted, specific treatment within the body and with out. We can do this by correcting body imbalances, improving the hair and scalp environment and enhancing hair nourishment all through a natural/herbal based treatment solution which is the safest way available.
