Hair Growth Formula
Today we see that a lot of people suffer from hair loss sometimes starting at early ages. If you see old movies or look at old family photos it becomes obvious that this problems is getting worse. This is due to the changes in our diets. Today we eat a lot of processed foods with increased amounts of carbohydrates and refined sugar which is the main reason for hormone changes in the body leading to the hair loss. In addition to that we have incorporated dairy food into our diet in larger amounts thereby increasing the problems associated with hair loss. Use of vegetable oils such as soy oil, corn oil, canola oil and sufflower oil instead of coconut oil which is the best oil for our health as well as our hair is an additional problem.
The treatment I recommend for hair loss starts with a special lotion i prepare to be applied to the scalp two times daily. It should be applied at night before going to sleep and then in the morning. I recommend about three showers a week. Some hardworking people may need a shower daily. The lotion should be applied after the hair is dry.
I start with a supplement program which include seven supplements daily to start with. Then after a few months we can change to four supplements daily.
In some cases where I suspect the hormone imbalances are extensive I might provide additional supplements to remove toxins from the body.
At the same time you start the treatment the diet should be changed. I recommend starting three kinds of vegetables to be eaten raw three times daily before each meal and a vegetable soup two times a day. Reduce the amount of rice and bread. Increase the legumes such as kadala ( Gabanzoes) mung, cowpea, red kidney beans and lentils in the diet. Use only coconut oil. Eliminate sugar, fructose and other refined sugar. No dairy foods.

What is the normal cycle of hair growth and loss?
The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 3 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 centimeter per month during this phase. About 90 percent of the hair on your scalp is growing at any one time. About 10 percent of the hair on your scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. After 3 to 4 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.
It is normal to shed some hair each day as part of this cycle. However, some people may experience excessive (more than normal) hair loss. Hair loss of this type can affect men, women and children.
What is common baldness?
"Common baldness" usually means male-pattern baldness, or permanent-pattern baldness. It is also called androgenetic alopecia. Male-pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hair line and baldness on the top of the head.
Women may develop female-pattern baldness. In this form of hair loss, the hair can become thin over the entire scalp.
What causes excessive hair loss?
A number of things can cause excessive hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.
Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.
Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.
Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, high blood pressure or heart problems, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.
Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.

Can certain hairstyles or treatments cause hair loss?
Yes. If you wear pigtails or cornrows or use tight hair rollers, the pull on your hair can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia (say: “al-oh-pee-sha”). If the pulling is stopped before scarring of the scalp develops, your hair will grow back normally. However, scarring can cause permanent hair loss. Hot oil hair treatments or chemicals used in permanents (also called "perms") may cause inflammation (swelling) of the hair follicle, which can result in scarring and hair loss.
