Products for Hair Loss

Question:

What products are good for hair loss/ restoration? I take meds for high blood pressure. – Jeannette

Answer:

Dear Jeannette, Hair loss can result from a variety of causes. Some men and women carry genes for “Male Pattern Baldness” causing elevated “DeHydroTestosterone” (DHT). DHT triggers hair loss. If this is the case, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor is taken. Low blood levels of Vitamin D3 or iodine may interfere with proper thyroid function. A full thyroid panel could rule out low thyroid which may cause hair loss. Heavy chronic stress or low dietary protein intake may affect hair loss. Also, if the hair is falling out in patches, alopecia may be the culprit. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease.

So, it is very important to get to the root cause in order to find the proper remedy. For more information, feel free to call me
