New Streamlined Treatment Protocol for Women


      Women are all too often treated indifferently by doctors when it comes to dealing with hair loss. The irony in this is that hair loss is emotionally more catastrophic in women, because it is percieved by most that it is "normal" for a man to lose his hair. They are typically told little can be done and often leave with nothing but a bottle of "Rogaine for Women" and/or a prescription for Premarin or Aldactone, both of which do little to nothing to solve the problem,(and are strongly contra-indicated for ANYONE with a risk of breast cancer). Our hair loss treatment protocol for female pattern baldness (FPB) is a health promoting and highly efficacious approach to treatment based upon the latest usable information available from the medical literature, patent registries and individual researchers/physicians. Our treatment recommendations confer antiaging benefits and yield results that are faster acting and far superior to the ineffective, toxic at times, side effect prone pharmaceutical treatments unfortunately offered by most dermatologists.

      It is updated and refined as new information becomes available.

      It has been established that hair loss is multi-factorial. Because of this it is unlikely that a singular treatment that addresses only one mechanism (such as "Rogaine for Women") will produce a significant result.

      The good news in this is that hair loss can be positively impacted from a multiplicity of angles. Research has shown that there are myriad currently available compounds that benefit hair loss in some way. Our treatment protocol brings this information to you and synthesizes it in a usable format.

      A number of  hair loss treatment advances have emerged from the bio-tech industry for which patents have been sought or approved. Fortunately the information contained in these patent applications, which are public information, often allows you to use patented compounds years ahead of their commercial release. In many cases what has been patented are combinations of compounds that are already available. Recently there have been several patented combinations that have a scientifically well founded base in terms of the elucidated mechanisms of action, and in some cases, pilot studies as they relate to the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia. These combinations have been integrated into our treatment protocol’s primary recommendations.

      Based upon consistently positive feedback, and in some cases overlapping mechanisms of action with our prior treatment recommendationsl, these recent advances have enabled us to streamline our existing protocol, ultimately making it more practical to sustain and less costly to adhere to. Obtaining stabilization of androgen mediated hair loss and hair regrowth no longer necessitates using the entire protocol. We are categorizing treatments based upon feedback and the quality of research presented.


      This, in turn, will enable most to institute an affordable comprehensive treatment protocol that is years ahead of Propecia and Rogaine.

      Future treatments, currently under development, involving stem cell and genetic interventions, will likely give more satisfactory results to to those with long standing hair loss. Estimates as to the wide and affordable commercial availability of these treatments range from 6-15 years.

Treatment Protocol For Women

      Hair loss in women is primarily a function of the ratio of male hormones(androgens) to female hormones that favors androgens. This ratio oftens shifts towards androgens following pregnancy/delivery and during menopause, although hormonal hair loss can manifest at anytime in some. You have likely heard that DHT the "cause" of hair loss. In reality, the role of hormones in hair loss goes well beyond DHT. Other identified hormonal variables of hair loss in women include androstendione,DHEA, prolactin and certain estrogen metabolites that when not addressed could readily explain the transient and only partial effectiveness and side effect profile of using either Propecia or Aldactone as a sole treatment for MPB.

      Our current focus of treatment emphasizes a topical and systemic neutralizing of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) via 5-alpha-reductase inhibition, prolactin downregulation, and androstendione reduction via enterolactone upregulation. It also encompasses reducing androgen and estrogen binding at receptor sites, and increasing levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).

      Additional, and even more significant factors of a non-hormonal nature that are addressed in our treatment protocols include inflammation, fibrosis, free radical activity, decreased microcapillary perfusion(follicle blood supply), and reduced peripheral NO expression .

      Studies have shown that the free androgen index is higher and SHBG( SexHormone Binding globulin) is lower in women with FPB. Insulin resistance has also been shown to a significant contributing factor to FPB. For both women and men over 45, senescent (age related) thinning can be juxtaposed on an existing hormonal hair loss condition, making matters more challenging from a treatment standpoint. These age-related non-hormonal variables, such as atherosclerosis, that are implicated in senescent(age related) thinning are addressed in our treatment protocols as well.

Dietary Considerations


      It has been established many times over that male and female pattern hair loss in Asian countries baldness is a fraction of what it is in the United States. It has also been established that the incidence of hair loss in these populations increases in urban environments and even moreso in those that have relocated to the U.S. Every study without exception points to diet as the primary and perhaps only variable in this phenomena. Given the likely prophylactic effects of Green Tea, Soy, Curcumin, Coconut Oil and other lignans consumed regularly in the diets of Orientals and Indians in rural areas, this comes as no great surprise.

      Systemic inflammation plays a central role in hair loss and can either function to exacerbate or ameliorate hair loss. The following article goes into some detail about this connection. Diet, Inflammation, and Hairloss

      In a nutshell, a “Mediterrasian” diet (blending traditional staples of Mediterranean and Asian diets) consisting largely of Seafood, Olive Oil, Fish Oil, Coconut Oil, Soy foods, Sea Vegetables, Green Tea, Red wine, vegetables and low glycemic fruits consumed raw, with occasional whole grains, in a manner that facilitates insulin management, would appear most conducive to hair growth and hair loss prevention.

      A diet high in trans fats, white flour, refined sugar, and high glycemic starches can wreak havoc on even the most comprehensive hair loss treatment protocol for a number of different reasons.

What to Expect on this Treatment Protocol

      In addition to its hair growth/hair loss prevention effects, this protocol (with the exception of Nizoral and Propecia) and dietary guidelines will confer multiple health benefits. These include, but are not limited to increased energy, increased libido, cognitive enhancement, decreased systemic inflammation, a significantly reduced risk of cancer or cardiovascular event, firmer skin, improved complexion, reduced bodyfat, and the list goes on. In many ways this treatment protocol functions as an anti-aging regime with an emphasis on hair growth.

      Remember, ascertainable hair growth effects for any treatment typically take 3-6 months or longer. When Proscar first came on the market in ’92, many tried it for hair growth for a few months and the general concensus was it didn’t work. Subsequent research showed that benefits in many cases don’t begin to manifest until 6 months or longer. As we know Proscar, became FDA approved for the treatment of hair loss at 1/5 the original dose and was renamed,”Propecia.” Our treatment protocol is an anti-aging regime that is designed to prevent hair loss, and over time, facilitate hair growth.
