06-27-2012 04:57 AMAstonThanks for the heads up, Ryan, but i have been researching exactly that side of the community recently. Danny roddy's suggestions seem to boost the metabolism reactivity in a paleo diet, which actually tends to slow it down normally. For people with a broken energy metabolism this may be effective for hair regrowth, but counter-producing health-wise. I'm not sure yet. It's all about boosting your resting metabolic rate reliably. Can danny roddy's suggestion really do it? I'll certainly post more in my thread when i have a clearer picture. I am certain there is enough research in this topic to give us an answer.
06-27-2012 12:25 AMRyan999Just happened to come across one of your posts about preg, prog, cortisol, etc., to be at the root of hair loss. I think you're on the right track. I experimented with a strict low carb paleo diet for about a year and didn't notice much of a change, possibly got worse. Have you heard of Danny Roddy? If not check out dannyroddy.com, read a few articles. After a couple years of studying hair loss and nutrition this is the absolute best diet I've come across. I've regrown some hair so far.
06-22-2012 12:30 PMAstonI am also not supplementing with preg yet. Instead, after further research, i have made a complete switch to a dietary plan which has, in my opinion, the best chance to recover my leptin sensitivity, the main piece of the puzzle in the metabolic slowdown caused by the modern high carb diet. I am around one third in my 9 weeks program. Once i can confirm my leptin sensitivity is back my metabolism could jump up by itself, and then i would theoretically see my hair loss stop, per increased hormonal tone. I will only supplement with preg/thyroid hormones if i see the Leptin Reset not being sufficient.

06-22-2012 12:29 PMAstonTim, stress and male pattern balding have no intricate relationship. The stress-induced hair loss doesn't follow the Norwood Scale pattern and is reversible. Male pattern baldness follows it and is not reversible naturally. The biological mechanisms are also different. At the same time people with chronically lowered cortisol-hormones-line can still get stressed all the same, however, if the theory i advocate is right, their cortisol then falls to a slightly deficient default state. It is interesting to note that a chronically low cortisol has clinical symptoms and is called "adrenal fatigue". As far as i know MPB sufferers don't seem to normally have adrenal fatigue. Aging men don't necessarily have adrenal fatigue either, though. I believe a lowered hormonal tone "covers" the single deficiency by simply reducing the amount of hormone you need to feel alert. In fact, aging men tend to sleep progressively less despite the lower hormonal tone.
06-17-2012 07:47 AMMoreCoffeeHello Aston,
Your points about Test and Preg being out of whack are definitely interesting. Females I believe have more Preg hence go bald less. So did you start your supplementation yet? And I am not on the same scientific level as you but im not sure I agree that low cortisol promotes baldness asI feel it may be opposite. For example, cortisol is a hormone that is produced much more in stressful situations and is elevated in the morning. I can tell you that when I get to work in the morning and when approached immediately with high stress assignments I feel kinda out of balance and my scalp starts to itch and sebum rate definitely increases. Arent these all a result of elevated cortisol? I look forward to your knowledgeable feback!

EDIT: please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org for the link
Please be advised that the compiler of this information isn't a medical practitioner, but he is the moderator of the forums of a renown endocrinologist, Doctor John Crisler. The information he compiled comes from the research discussed by said doctor. (you can find some of his videos online and podcasts on the forums). Since it relies on cutting edge research, blindly following these methods may not be advisable, yet it offers quite an amount of research material to decide whether your own issue can be addressed by optimizing your hormonal levels. The relationship between diet, metabolic syndrome and hormonal tone is object of fervent research, but offers little certainty at the moment.
Please, feel free to share all and any further insights or considerations with me.

Anyone having trouble finding the correct site for more information can PM me."
Mind if I grab that link off of you?
