What is working for you?

Post  helpmyhair1 on Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:45 pm

For the last few years I seemed to be maintaining my hair.. basically no real progression, but over the past few months, I can see that I've noticeably thinned out which is depressing. My regimen is resvertrol/curcumin, probiotic, ashwaghanda, ecklonia cava, quercetin, along with DT (pushing down on the scale to break up fibrosis) and eating a gluten-free diet. But even with this, I'm starting to lose the fight.

So my question is for the people that are maintaining and/or regrowing their hair. What is working for you? Need some input here on where I can improve.

I don't pinch which is part of DT. I only do the pressing down. I use a hard surface and press my head against it, changed positions to cover all the areas. Perhaps the pressing isn't helping, but it sure has giving my head much less of that sore feeling.

My signature.

I should point out that removing heavy metals is one of the most critical pieces. Unfortunately, it's not that easy in many cases (when there are metals in the mouth). And the complexity of this problem requires extensive education. One of the reasons why on my website I only provide vague information on the topic.

Just to support some evidence for this, and I could provide many more, here is just one.

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0024320516301886

If one does not have any amalgams (mercury) in their mouth, I would then suggest to use this:

I remember you said humic, fulvic acid was safe to use when you had amalgams.

Now I'm worried, is there no way to mitigate mercury damage from amalgams until one can afford removal?

I've heard to avoid R-ALA, any other supplements to avoid?

Is your bedroom well ventilated, OP? Seriously, just leaving the window ajar by a mere 2cm keeps a fresh supply of oxygen pouring in for the entire time you're asleep. I seriously can't express enough how much this has eradicated my inflammation. CS' regimen also helped very well in this, but I haven't topped my supps up in a while, so it goes to show that the increased oxygen alone helps to also do the trick.

Just in case you're unaware of how this helps; I have noticed a consistent pattern of inflammation (and loss) on the temple that has been mostly compressed against my pillow during sleep. Due to little adipose tissue in the temple area, the pillow compresses matrix cells against the hard mass of the skull, which induces a degree of ischemia and inflammation. Secondly, this issue is made much worse if ambient oxygen levels in your bedroom are very low, but the compression issue becomes a non-factor so long as there is a steady supply of air streaming into your room during sleep.

There's obviously much more to this problem, yet oxygenating my room has left me inflammation free for a long time now. Will it be enough to regrow terminals? I don't know, but getting rid of inflammation is definitely a plus in this regard.

CS, do you think thallium plays a big role as well? I found an old post of ubraj mentioning thallium.

"When you're on doctrine with TMG and selenomethionine to fix health, to fight hair loss, potassium asparate... although potassium chloride is fine as well. Reason why potassium is antidote for thallium. Thallium being huge for hair loss. Thallium is found in mercury."

Here a study about thallium toxicity:

Hi CS, I do incorporate alot of your supps in my regimen.

As for heavy metal detox, I am using Thyroid Boost. How long should one use it? Indefinitely or cycle it?

I don't have any amalgams. However when I was young I had braces. When they took them off, they put a metal bar behind my top teeth as well as another behind my bottom teeth. They call these permanent braces and my dentist says they will be in for life to keep my teeth straight. Could this be negatively impacting my hair?

Unfortunately my bedroom does not have a window and was really stuffy when I moved in. I put an Airfree Purifier which helped a lot with my breathing. Air is much nicer now. Should I leave the fan on in my air conditioning unit to keep airflow coming in?

I'm currently using green tea/coconut shampoo, dermaroller and lavender oil. That's it, nothing else.

I'm not sure if it's working though, too early to tell.

Hi longhair. I have a few questions, if you don't mind. Are you referring to DT-CPR (pressing) or the original (pinching) DT and which kind of solid objects do you use. Do you see regrowth on the hairline?

Hi long hair, you use the CAP of the bottle, with the sharper edge? How hard do you press with that?

What has worked for me similar to the regimen used by Prague, one of the users that used to post on this forum. You can find his archived posts here:
http://immortalhair.forumandco.com/spa/Prague

When I first read his posts years ago, many of the ideas seemed far-fetched. However in practice they are effective. OTOH, eating lots of onions, garlic, turmeric, ACV, honey. As well as some more unconventional ideas like exposing yourself to cold water. In a lot of the posts, he mentions developing an intuition for how your body reacts to different environmental factors. I think one way to do this is to keep a journal on your diet and make note of how it affects the way you feel. You can also make other observations like how your face looks when you wake up in the morning. If you wake up with fluid retention it's probably because you ate something bad the previous day.

If you're very serious, you should try to minimize cheating when it comes to diet. Eg., skip all grains except rice and oats, skip all fried foods and processed foods.

I wouldn't overlook the small things. For example at my work I used to wash my hands with the soap from the dispenser, and I would notice a numbing/burning sensation around the edges of my fingernails. Didn't make anything of it until one day I looked at the label on the soap container and there must have been about 100 different chemicals listed.

Something else that I have been thinking about is the effect of constantly being in motion, for example being in a car for long periods everyday. I think chronic, low-grade stress is a big factor.

The only supplement that I take regularly is curcumin. I have been opening the capsule and emptying it into heated milk.

Sorry, man, I only just noticed this reply. I'm not too savvy on air con systems, as I don't have one installed in my home. All I know is, having my sleeping environment well oxygenated sure helps to stop inflammatory issues. I've also started doing 5 mile walks each morning... no idea if it's beneficial for hair per se, but I can say for certainty it has seriously improved my skin complexion, and the whites of my eyes are clearer than ever.

Also, 11th day no fap, so, hopefully, circulating DHT levels are lowering significantly. I've had no desire to even fap, and I think that's because I've purposely veered away from porn and any other form of sexual stimuli. I think that it's when you allow yourself to become sexually aroused, that you become sexually frustrated, and then can't help but slip back into the habit.

I'll give this one more year (or maybe a little longer), and if there's no significant changes (in terms of growth), then I'm throwing in the towel. It really shouldn't take long at all for follicles to re-enter the anagen phase, and I mean all of them.

Why have you heard to avoid r-ala? CS takes it albeit the Na stabilized form.

Hi long hair, you use the CAP of the bottle, with the sharper edge?  How hard do you press with that?

john ...just moderate pressure ..i remember i did a heavy pressure once but it gave me a neck pain .so this is not good . for the plastic cap you can use the edge of the closed side because it is solid enough ,i have a picture some where in CD2 thread it will show you the right edge Very Happy

Hi guys,
Long Hair thanks for the encouraging update. Please remember to post your updates also on the main DT-CPR thread, it is kind of starving for updates these days. I imagine there are new seekers every few days, and they may not look too far back in the archives. Anyhow congratulations sticking with the process and seeing good results.
