One of the most common complaints we see in both men and women is hair loss. This is a very complex issue with multiple potential causes. It is imperative that one’s hormones are balanced and continuously monitored. One of the most common hormones attributed to this problem is dht . This is basically a bi product of testosterone. In both men and women this hormone can be elevated and associated with the typical male pattern baldness that we think of as the natural aging process.
There are many tools available to us that will decrease dht. This can range from oral prescription drugs, to topical solutions or even specific supplement regimens.
It is also important that we balance ones stress hormone ,called cortisol ,as well as all of the other hormones. Thyroid disorder is often the culprit ,as well ,whether the levels are too high or low
We also check for food as well as the heavy metal burden to one’s system.
This is a complicated issue but there are quite a few treatments that offer good results to patients
