Re: Gut Microbiota

The first Wikipedia page you linked to gives a lot of information about male and female pattern hair loss - its causes, medications, and prognosis. It's a big article. The second shorter article from The Scientist is more focused on the metabolic syndrome and the effect that the standard American di...

Re: A question regarding shedding

Are you aware of SE very having triggered a shed or inflammation of the scalp through chronic exercise? You wrote that you started the scalp exercise about four months ago. In the frontal hairline you attribute the scalp exercise as promoting the growth of new dark hair, but a serious shed of hair ...

Re: My hair health program (with regular updates)

Re: Strange tickling when contracting occipitalis but ONLY when hair had been wet a moment before (what?)

I don't get that tickling or tingling sensation after I take a shower or an hour after the shower. I often do the basic scalp exercise when my hair is wet though - but no tingle.

Re: 10 months SE

He is contracting the occipitalis a lot. Look at his ears. When he contracts the occipitalis muscles his ears flatten out against his scalp. He is getting a lot of scalp movement by this alternating contraction of the frontalis and occipitalis muscles. I've seen him in other videos. He does get a st...

Re: Supplements.

I don't believe in the magic power of supplements. But even with that said I still take a few. 1. Norwegian col liver oil from Twinlab. I take a teaspoonful most days. 2. Brewer's Yeast powder from Swanson. I blend it with orange juice. It tastes OK. 3. Sea Kelp tablets, 150 mcg, for the iodine sinc...

Re: Looks like TE

Whether its out of control cortisol or lack of proper nutrition It's easy to focus on just a few things when there is a problem. I do it myself. Out of control cortisol or lack of proper nutrition can indeed make your hair look frail; a stress-free day, nutritious foods, and the scalp exercise can ...

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

I just watched the entire 41-minute video hosted by Sanjay Gupta. My take is that a good diet, mostly a plant-based diet, can almost eliminate the risk of a heart attack. After watching the documentary I have a new resolve to eat only nutritious foods and stay away from junk food. I do mostly this n...
