Re: Detumescence Therapy- dedicated volunteers wanted

Post  Duketronix on Tue Jun 09, 2015 2:09 pm

Just poppin through. Beena a while and not gonna read all the stuff I missed since it seems to be mostly more of the same old same old....

At any rate I'm convinced that the crunching is a vital part of the process. I originally had no crunching and then eventually (6-7months?) started getting the crunching sound at my temples. Now it has slowly spread so that I get the crunching on almost my entire head. It's been interesting watching it slowly spread. I would swear my head is flatter now too... But maybe I'm imagining that.... don't know.

At any rate I started DT for the first like 4 month son just my right temple and and then added the left in once I looked like it was showing promise. The difference between the two is quite large now but the left is very clearly going through the same process as the right did. Over the past few months I have been quite consistently shedding though. I've had some overall thinning but I've jsut stuck to it and now in the past few weeks when I comb me hair back there's a ton of new hairs coming in and popping through the long hairs.

I didn't give up because I had a couple solo hairs that have been in the same spot below my hairline since years ago when I was on pharma stuff. THose hairs have been largely swallowed up on the right and on the left there's a good 10 terminal hairs and whole whack of other promising guys who don't have pigment yet filling in the area.

I don't know that this works for everybody but it sure as hell works for me. I'd love to know exactly why. I'd LOVE to know what that crunching is too. I've showed friends the sound to make sure it isn't only audible to me and they can all hear it. I also have noticed that since my scalp has gotten looser when the crunching happens I can kind of feel stuff compressing in my scalp almost like little bubbles popping or beads rubbing against each-other but super small. I can't "feel" them specifically but intuitively that's what my brain feels like is happening.

anyway not coming here and sticking to DT seems to do the trick for me so I won't be back for a while. My phone contract is up in late fall so maybe I'll get one with decent camera and then I'll upload some pics.

Good luck!

Hey Duke

Good to hear of your progress!  How long did it take for your scalp to loosen up?  Are you using the two hand pinch technique?

About the crunching, I really want to hear that too, but I've probably only been doing DT properly for 2-3 weeks (I heard it a few times and got excited, but then realized it was my hair getting crunched together Very Happy ).

How much dandruff/dead skin/sebum are you getting with each session?  I have to add a vigorous rubbing motion to really get that, and boar bristle tapping/smashing too.

Honest to God my scalp feels looser today, definitely a difference.

EDIT:  Just realized you said you wouldn't be back, never mind  Very Happy

Oh and by the way, a question to everyone here, has anyone ever taken their boar bristle brush, placed it somewhere on their scalp, kept it still, and pressed it down with the other hand?  I find that when I do this, I IMMEDIATELY get a lot of dead skin/dandruff to break loose.  It stings a little bit, but it's really nothing.

Also, after I do that boar bristle "smashing" or whatever you want to call it, I spray my Apple Cider Vinegar on those areas, and boy, does it sting so good Twisted Evil The sting lasts a good while too!

Thoughts?

I've got the DT "growth" lines too but tbh I'm not sure it's actually growth rather than just an optical illusion based on a now permanently indented line in my head, like a big wrinkle. I have to wonder if this is like a supercharged method to create wrinkles from the constant folding.

So you're still doing DT? So you're getting the fold lines on the top of your scalp as well like hairy showers? (I'm assuming your hair is cut short)

What do you mean by permanent? You saying if you take a break for a day or 2 or maybe a week they'll still be there? Or what if your try to even it out and fold elsewhere?

It also seems hairy is doing a lot of scalp scrunching. Is this what you're doing mainly to have permanent fold lines?

I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing these "permanent indentations"? (I don't think I am..

Sorry dude I don't mean to trigger you since you seem a bit prone to hypochondriac type thinking. I haven't done DT much for many months now but I can still see what appears to be thicker hair in the some of the prior fold zones. I can't feel much if any indent there now though so I'm not sure if it's actually an indent.

Thanks for clarifying.

Lol well, I guess I can get easily concerned, but at the end of the day I just wanna be able to do DT in peace without having to worry about possible negative bodily consequences. Large peramanrnt wrinkles seemed to fit that description..

Hey guys

I was just wondering, could I get some opinions about my boar bristle "smashing" method?

Basically, I take my boar bristle brush, place it on my temples/top/wherever on my scalp, keep it stationary, and with my other hand press down on top of it until the bristles crumble.  I find that this gives me an almost IMMEDIATE release of dead skin/dandruff, and a lot of it.  I also "tap" with my boar bristle brush, but the smashing method seems to knock loose much more crap.

Sometimes after I do that, I'll spray my ACV on it (1 part ACV to 1 part water).  It really stings.

Does anyone think this is bad?  Except of course the possibility of wearing out the brush faster.

Maybe I'll post a picture on Monday if I remember after I shower, so you can see the scalp perfectly clean, then within a few seconds, it's covered in dead skin after I do this. You can definitely see that the scalp is red/inflamed in the areas that I did this in, and it stings a little bit too, but not much at all.

Thanks!

EDIT:  Just saw hairy's relaxed scalp pics.  If that's not proof that it worked, I don't know what to tell you, awesome work.  Please keep us updated cheers

3 months in.


This is going to be a quick and short update. Been doing DT for three months. Looking at photos of last month and this month I can't tell any difference. Not seeing any growth and not expecting any for another few months. What has changed between now and when I started is the amount of white flakes/dandruff that I get after every session - it has been reduced dramatically, it is now 1/2 or 1/3 the amount that I got when I first started out. The amount of hair that I lost after every session has been going down as well. Before I would loose about 30 hairs each time now I loose around 20 after my morning session and less than 5 after my evening session.

To answer our questions,this works by breaking the hard lymph that has trapped acids that caused inflammation.
By removing this obstruction in the flow of energy and by keeping a alkaline enviroment(thats why diet is everything-regeneration doesnt happen in an acidic medium) the body can regenerate tissues.
The crunching sound is hard lymph being beaking and turning again into liquid and hopefully once again into the the circulation of the lymph vessels.Finally it should get out by kidneys and peed in the toiled cause kidnes filter the 2/3 of the lymph fluids.

I think you'll dig this. I dunno if you've ever heard him talk about hair loss before! It's the lymph fluid guys, guaranteed.

Go to 39:50 to hear him speak about it for a second.

Hey man, good to see you post again. any update on your progress? any pics which you mentioned months ago?
cheers
so if it's the lymph system, hagerty's exercises must be a welcome addition to do during the day at any moment?

It's definitely the lymphatic fluid, that's why you see the hard swelling where there's hair loss. I recommend everyone get on a raw food diet, that's why we're in this mess in the first place. Acidosis. No question in my mind. I'm moving over to a raw food diet hopefully that will speed things up even more. I'm slowly approaching NW2 and my density is almost filled in. I was extremely diffuse all over in such random gross spots, those are all filling in. I had the island in front, which is slowly fanning back out into my hairline that keeps dropping and getting thicker and thicker. My hair is getting darker too. Once my crown fills in, I'll post pictures. My crown was a baseball sized bald spot with maybe 10% density and now it's filled in all the way with dense hair, just has to thicken and pigment more a bit. I'm probably at about 65% regrowth for the crown which is absolutely incredible. The rest of the density is to about 75% where it had thinned to maybe 20% density in random spots. So it was bad and patchy and a large bald spot. When first starting this treatment I was between NW3v and NW4 with bad diffuse and now I'm heading towards full density by the end of the year so hopefully I can drop the hairline down to NW2 by then, that's my goal. Anyway, I'll post a pic soon. I'm finally letting my hair grow out again Smile. Hope all is well with everyone here. The only reason anyone is losing their hair is because of this lymph fluid under your scalp. I'd bet my life on it. DT and a Raw food diet to clear out your lymphatic system and bye bye hair loss. Best of luck all. I will be NW1 or 0 in a few years. Talk soon guys!

DT still has yet to work for me, but I do believe it is the lymphatic system as well.

I've currently been doing this DT for a little over a month. My hair is thinning more (less density) and the scalp has a lot of pimples/acnes and dandruff. It's also very itchy. Is this normal / part of the process or am I doing it wrong?

Press the skin, pinch. press the skin, pinch. Wash, rinse repeat. Twice a day, 20 minutes each. Everyday.

The harder part to work on is the front crown. It's hard as rock. Is this normal / part of the process?

Hey easy

FWIW dandruff is a great sign in my opinion. I experienced much more shedding immediately within the first two weeks of starting DT properly. Some areas feel really hard for me too. Most notable is above my left temple. It feels like when I pinch it, I'm just pinching two ends of a piece of wood/something immobile. I work around this by trying to use two hands to pinch and bunch up the skin in this area, and to pay special attention to it with the massage/rubbing motions part of DT.

Also, I was wondering about Tom Hagerty's scalp exercises. What is a good amount of time to do them? I was just wondering because I don't want to end up gaining too much muscle on my head and unintentionally make DT harder. I used to do them a lot but cut back.

I'm sure the technique is important, does anyone else do Hagerty's scalp exercises? I raise my eyebrows (contracting my frontalis muscles in a kind of surprised look) for not even a second, then pull my ears back (contracting the occipital muscles) and sometimes hold them there for a few seconds, or just release them quickly to move my scalp more quickly than holding it, which would make the exercise basically look like I was flirting with someone in a creepy way (needless to say, I do the exercises in private Very Happy )

Its been 2 months since I stopped doing dt, the vellus hairs that I thought came from Dt are still here. Im guessing those vellus was always there even before DT.

There's really an incredible amount of dead skin or whatever it is trapped in my scalp, and if it wasn't for DT I never would have noticed. I get the best release by pressing a boar bristle brush onto my scalp. It can look perfectly clean, and after as little as 5 seconds, it looks like I spilled powdered sugar on my scalp

hiilikeyourbeard seems to have the best result out of DT. If he can share his "techniques" to us that'd be great. We need all help we can get.

I'd rather do this therapy the right way immediately. I don't want to be in this for 9 months only to realize I'm doing it all wrong. That'd be a waste of time, waste of effort, waste of investment and not to mention waste of emotional ups and downs.

What is the conclusion of this therapy? Is this working or was it just another bs in the list of the hair loss treatments? Im not sure if its a good sign that no one is posting progress anymore. Maybe they moved on with their life after experiencing regrowth (I wish)......

I think we can safely say this is not a bs treatment as several people have shown some pretty compelling results - especially the pics hiilikeyourbeard i believe, showed of the hair regrowing where the massages would crease his skin. We also have many people who managed to maintain their hair using the method...even though some may not attribute it to the massage. The issue is people were promised a miracle by the study. Maintenance is not a victory in many people's heads because the bar was set so high. But we have had people with regrowth, and almost everyone reports a healthier scalp.

If we are to believe the reports of everyone who has gone in and submitted their results to this thread, this massage has a much higher success rate than most other options such as many supp regimens, topicals, and dietary changes. Worth a shot if you have little hair you need to regain, or just want to maintain what you've got. If you're pretty far gone well, you may need to look at other options.
