» According to my personal experience, you are absolutely wrong about this.
» Your response to stress is completely affected by diet and exercise, as

» that itching feeling all over my skin from perspiration that felt acidic
» was my reaction to stress. I remember my scalp itching while I stessed
» about school exams and watching my hair fall out all over my desk. But an
» alkaline diet is like taking a cool shower on a hot day. The change

» milk cheese for protein (never pasteurized) but I hardly ever eat meat.
» It’s a fact that many B vitamins affect our nervous system and our

» fruits and vegetables, not to mention all of the minerals, enzymes, and

» I guess you could say I’ll most likely die in an accident.

dietary changes and vitamins and minerals have a large effect on hair loss and growth and overall hair health . this is more true as far as helping hair loss in the early stages of MPB
however, you can have a perfect diet, and if you have a large DHT accumulation in your follicles and are doing nothing to reduce DHT , diet and vitamins become ineffective at stopping fallout
In 1999 i had been on only diet and vitamins and minerals for about 15 years, and had successfully stopped the speed of my thinning hair line although it was still thinning i had it under control. But at that time in 1999 i started losing 300 hairs a day and no change in diet or increase in my super hair vitamins would stop it. I for the first time tried adding dht blockers such as saw palmetto, and within 3 wks my fallout went down to about 20 hairs per day, quite a reduction/ I think the natural dht blockers in my case interfere with the body attacking the hair follicles with some type of auto immune defense.
so yes you are right diet and vits and minerals are extremely important but they must also be combined with DHT blockers, at least in my case
