» Hi milleu,
» The causes of hair loss are many. The solutions to hair loss are just as
» many. I, personally, believe, after years of trial and error, researching,
» and reading other people’s posts that we must focus our attention on
» lowering blood-glucose levels, cholesterol levels, and chelating heavy
» metals. These are things that we can safely adjust with herbs. Now,
» trying to balance one’s hormones and such is also possible, but I think
» that it’s a much trickier and riskier business.
» A basic regimen of curcumin and resveratrol should be helpful to your
» scalp and hair. Curcumin is used to treat many conditions that we now
» understand to be related to hair loss, such as: insulin resistance,
» inflammation, poor circulation, heavy metals. The only problem is that
» curcumin, by itself, is poorly absorbed in the body. Resveratrol is an
» herb that works synergistically with curcumin, improving the effect of
» In addition, I try to take this combination with warm milk, as it
» is reported to improve curcumin’s absorption.
» Look below in my signature, and you will see a link to a study which
» examined the effect a curcumin/resveratrol supplement had on people
» suffering from hair loss.
» In the hair loss study, “Curcuma rhizome (titrated dried extract) 95%” was
» used. Subjects took about 80 mg. of this, along with resveratrol, vitamin
» C, wheat germ (a vitamin E source), and capsicum (cayenne pepper).
» Their results were “…while the group treated with resveratrol and
» curcumin showed with great surprise a reduction, sometimes also relevant,
» in variable time periods. Moreover, during this testing, the patients
» treated with resveratrol and curcumin surprisingly showed positive
» improvements in the treatment of psoriasis and the attenuation and even a
» stop of the hair loss, a reduction of the hair graying and the rebirth of
» hair in bald areas sometimes even of the original color too.”
» I have used Jarrow’s products successfully in the past. This month’s
» regimen will include:
» Jarrow’s Curcumin
» Country Life’s Resveratrol plus
» Primordial Performance Toco-8
» Jarrow’s ToxGuard
» Hope this helps!
Yeah, it clears a few things up. thank you.
I’m wondering if this will help the sebum production as well. I have the oiliest skin imaginable, I have a feeling this is a contributing factor to my problem. While on propecia, my skin was very dry, it looked horrible, was getting wrinkles, unhealthy look overall. Now, I touch my forehead, and voila, grease city. I wouldn’t want to be without oily skin anymore. I love it now that I’ve been without it.
I suppose this combo might be good in reducing the follicle killing toxins in your sebum? I mean minus the DHT. Maybe DHT needs something to latch on to it for it to kill your youth.
The whole idea is pretty interesting, to say that your DHT production is still kicking and your not losing hair when you’re genetically predisposed to doing so. This is most definitely a step in the right direction.
Well, I guess I’ll try the stuff out.
thanks for all the help
