Ok so I have been thinking… we have heard a lot about different levels of prostaglandins such as DP2 or other factors that are found in high leves in the scalp of bald men compared to non balding men.
Well that doesn’t really explain the true beginning reason of hair loss in that exact pattern that men experience. It starts at top or front or both and at the end you have hair left on the sides and close to neck…
Put it simply, if it was dht causing hair loss, it would happen all over as dht is same concentration in blood all around your body.
NOW THE IMPORTANT PART:
As some have theorized for very long, about the galea tendon located on the top of our heads and stretches into the back… right where hair loss stops at… that horshoe pattern as its reffered to. Well hair loss is only happening where the galea is…that needs TO BE LOOKED AT CLOSELY!! WHY IS IT…??
There many theories but something I’d like to point out right now is that Tendons and soft tissues calcify when there is too much calcium and too little Magnesium in the body…Magnesium helps to restore bone remineralization and take the calcium out of soft tissue back into the bone.
On the other hand excess calcium tends to deposit in soft tissue and lead to bone loss.
I have started using magnesium oil(magnesium chloride) + dmso topically and also am taking liquid ionically stable Zinc which has wayyy better absorption than pills and also oral Magnesium Chloride… which is the best and most absorbed form of Magnesium… it beats Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) by a long shot.
More interesting links: Men that suffer osteoarthiritis also suffer heard disease and hair loss…all 3 have been linked before.
Asian men on the other hand, who have diets high in Soy isoflavones (soy beans) and other sea minerals such as iodine, zinc, magnesium especially, dont have high instances of diseases like arthiritis or heart disease.
Over calcification of our soft tissue is the cause of many modern day ills. Heart attacks and disease occur when the lining of the blood vessels become deposited with Calcium.
Why is it that the Western countries have the HIGHEST rate of arthiritis??
Every thought of that?
While Asians have the LOWEST… ??
Because of our high calcium diet and focus on dairy enriched with extreme amounts of Calcium. Not to mention the flouridated water.
Some people seem to be more prone to excess calcium buildup, which leads to calcium tendonitis which leads to inflammation… (google it if you want to confirm) Inflammation leads to increased production of DP2…
Dp2 which Cotsaleris or however you spell his name spoke about the other week, is not the beginning cause of hair loss… so It doesn’t help us too much. It was already known that hair loss leads to inflammation, psoriais etc other inflammatory diseases. Not a surprise there!
Galea tendon theory supporters have always suggested that massaging the scalp and increasing the blood flow will help hair grow back. Well that doesn’t seem to work to good. What is basically happeing in my opinion is the galea tendon is being over calcified (thus the shiny thick skin /deformed appearance on the skull of bald men…
SOLUTION: take out excess calcium from your diet, stop taking calcium supplements if you do and since it is impossible to completely cut off ones intake of calcium in todays society, take a lot of magnesium, which is needed to begin with. The ration use to be 1:1 in prehistoric times in cave men… now the ratio of calcium to magnesium has gone as high as 6:1.
Topical Magnesium chloride in conjunction with oral Magnesium Chloride + Vitamin D3 liquid form and Vitamin K2 together will help to keep bones flexible and not brittle , keep heart safe from future heart issues, and hopefully take out all the excess calcium we have built up in our system and which leads to bone remodeling in the skull and thus shock to the hair follicles.
Hope this helps someone out there! I will keep you guys posted on results of my Magnesium Chloride, Vitamin D3, Vitamind K2 therapy.
