Controlling inflammatory cytokines, such as Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha, Superoxide, Reactive Oxygen Species, Prostaglandin imbalances, stress hormone elevation, prolactin production, and DHT are key to halting and reversing hair loss.
What triggers these inflammatory events in the body?
Weight gain, Excessive physical or mental stress, Environmental Pollution, Poor diet and eating disorders, lack of vitamins and minerals, and a build up of toxins in the body.
Do genetics play a role?
Yes, but your genes just determine a supsceptivity towards thinning and hair loss. The Human Genome Project which gave birth to the field of epigenetics demonstrates that while the DNA in our make-up does remain fixed the epigenome continually responds to our diet and living conditions, enabling an entire alteration in genetic expression.
In other words, your DNA is not your destiny. Just because hair loss runs in your family does not mean you’ll go bald. There are many ways for halting the process naturally for ALL types of hair loss.
