MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) Natural Cure

Posted by B (Anonymous) on 12/13/2012

Hi, I am a 20 year old male and have been suffering from hair loss for the last 3 years. I am sure that it is MPB [male pattern baldness] so I am asking for help. Can you recommend a regimen that is proven to work against MPB? Also, I have heard that using a boar bristle brush can help regrow hair. Is that true? There is also a guy who is gaining popularity on the internet named Edwin Diaz who had good results in his fight against MPB and he says he used herbs. I haven't really checked out his regimen as I thought I would rather ask for help from you, but have you ever heard of his regimen by chance? Does it seem like it may be effective? Any form of help is appreciated. It's making life hard since I'm still really young for this to be happening. Please help!

I can't resolve all male pattern baldness (MPB), I can resolved about 75% of the male pattern baldness cases. As for the boar bristle, that doesn't work well, it just stimulates the circulation. You can also do simple hair brushing or something of that nature.

The ones I see consistently (if you call 75% of cases resolved) which is as high as I can get at the moment, is to prepare a topical application cream (or solution) consisting of B3, some Biotin, methionine, cysteine, borax and perhaps some zinc acetate of roughly equal amount, except for biotin that is 1% is fine enough, make a solution, apply to the scalp and it takes about 2 to 3 weeks, on average before bumps start (which is hair trying to come out of the skin of the scalp) and start growing.

The DHT (dehydrotestosterone) is implicated in male pattern baldness, but this can be temporarily reduced with Saw Palmetto once a day, although I think a lot has to do with too much FREE heavy metals in your body, especially the nickel (usually from fried foods) or other metals from fried foods, which raises cholesterol levels, that also prevents circulation to the area. If I narrow down just to one item, it would be the B3 niacinamide, as it is antifungal, reduces anxiety and stress also, which is implicated in hair loss. But niacinamide is one of my mainstays in treatment of both hair loss and hair growth, the next is borax, the third I believe is sodium molybdate, especially if you have yeast or fungus, such as foot fungus and candida, in which case the sodium molybdate may be mixed into the lotion also. Niacinamide is also taken 500 mg at night, and if anxiety attacks happens it may be taken during the day. One thing I found a connection, people with frequent anxiety attacks have a B3 deficiency also, and have no hair or little hair.

If oily scalp is indicated, then zinc acetate may be taken at 10 mg for a month to influence hair growth also. As for taking cysteine and N acetyl cysteine, that may be taken internally also, at 500 mg each a day, to help the glutathione levels which chelates out the heavy metals. I also used EDTA, such as tetrasodium EDTA to get heavy metals out also, but they are good chelators of calcium and lighter FREE metals, while the glutathione are great with mercury and other heavy metals, in fact heavy metals can be created by fungus or vice versa. I haven't quite resolved male pattern baldness in all cases yet, but taurine and lysine are essential, in that taurine helps rid the body by excretion of heavy metals, and lysine helps with collagen which in turn helps the roots and scalp to be more well nourished, while N acetyl cysteine is precursor to glutathine, being that cysteine is the limiting amino acid. And cysteine, is a major component of the hair.

As for Rogaine and Minoxidil, that simply increases hair loss after you discontinue and I just don't use it because of low probability resolving male pattern baldness and you can end up with minoxidil use throughout life.

It must be noted that B3 mentioned is only niacinamide and not niacin.

I was looking for the ingredients to make the topical and the stores I've been to have them in powdered form and tablets. Can I make the topical from the powdered form? If so, What should I use as a base? If not, would the tablets work just as well? A little more detail on how to make the topical would be helpful.

Hello Ted: I was wondering about niacinamide. I did some search and came up with this:

Allergies: Niacin and niacinamide can make allergies more severe because they cause histamine, the chemical responsible for allergic symptoms, to be released..
Heart disease/unstable angina: Large amounts of niacin and niacinamide can increase the risk of irregular heartbeat. Use with caution.
Diabetes: Niacin and niacinamide might increase blood sugar. People with diabetes who take niacin or niacinamide should check their blood sugar carefully.
Gallbladder disease: Niacin and niacinamide might make gallbladder disease worse.
Gout: Large amounts of niacin or niacinamide might bring on gout.
Low blood pressure: Don't take niacin or niacinamide if you have low blood pressure. Your blood pressure might drop too much.
Liver disease: Niacin or niacinamide might increase liver damage. Don't use them if you have liver disease.
Kidney disease: Niacin might accumulate in people with kidney disease and cause harm. Don't use them if you have kidney disease.
Stomach or intestinal ulcers: Niacin or niacinamide might make ulcers worse. Don't use them if you have ulcers.
Surgery: Niacin and niacinamide might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop taking niacin or niacinamide at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

I got it from this link: AND NIACINAMIDE VITAMIN B3. Aspx?activeIngredientId=924&activeIngredientName=NIACIN AND NIACINAMIDE VITAMIN B3

What do you think??
