Doses to Increase Daimeter of Hair?
Hi Ted, ... I'm 40 years old (but look about 23 according to friends and strangers alike). Anyway, about 3 years ago I noticed that my hair was thinning. I was losing more than what I consider the acceptable norm in the shower and was very concerned. However, I was experiencing a lot of stress and attributed the loss to that. Soon after doctors discovered I had an abdominal tumor as well as fibroids, which had been causing excessive blood loss and my iron levels were nearly nonexistent. I have since gotten my iron back to normal, but my hair did not improve. In fact, it has gotten worse. My gynecologist said that there is no relation to the surgery because she left my ovaries, but uterus has hormones, too. I have been to a couple of dermatologists, but I knew more about trichology than they did! I just need help! I have examined my scalp and most pores have hair coming out, but it is thinner in diameter than normal, soft and fine. My ponytail is less than half the diameter it used to be. It has not been for lack of trying, but I do not know what to do. I read your website last night and felt hope for the first time in over a year. I have been using emu oil on my scalp with minimal success. I think it helped grow some hair, but like I said it is very fine, not like it used to be. Also, sometimes my scalp itches like mad. I have recently started using Nizoral shampoo and that helped a lot, but it still itches at the front and crown sometimes. I resist the urge to scratch as I know that will cause the hair to come out. I take Green Tea (about 5 months), Lysine (about 4 months), Biotin (4 months). If it's doing anything, it's just slowing the progression, not changing the pattern. I'm so frustrated that I sometimes just sit and cry. So far, no one knows but me, but if this keeps up, I'll have no hair. today, I am getting the apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, borax, manganese, and evening primrose oil capsules. Ted, I know that you are probably overwhelmed with emails, but could you please suggest some doses or tell me what I need to do to increase the diameter of my hair? I don't think traditional medicine is helpful, but natural cures probably work best... I mean how many bald Native Americans or Chinese do you see?! Anything you tell me to do, I will do. Thank you and I await your response.
