Ahab, do your research before passing a uninformed decision.
The therapy used on patients with cancer is not exactly the same as actualy freezing and cryotherapy. They used cold ice packs to lower the temperature.
I mentioned that to just give you an idea of different approaches being used to stop hairloss.
My point is already proven about angiogenesis because Latiss is a prostaglandin E2 analog and that is responsible for angiogenesis. You are not going to change scientific facts.
And it also has been proven that angiogenesis that occurs due to Latisse/prostaglandin e2 leads to hair growth on the head and eyelash.
But as I mentioned there several pathways for blood vessel formation so to address them together increases hair growth and quality.
Time to stop being so pathetic and brainwashed by the corporate media/pharmacies. You can take all you want but it will not stop your hair loss. It will just destroy your life... so sad.
» I suspect the way Cryotherapy is used to prevent hair loss in cancer
» patients when getting chemo, is that Cryotherapy lowers the temperature of
» hair follicles and constricts capillaries that support the follices,
» thereby slowing follicle metabolism and reducing blood flow.
» By lowering the metabolism in the hair follicles, it reduces their need for
» blood, and by constricting the capillaries, it reduces the amount of blood
» that can be fed to the follicles in any case.
» Reducing the blood supply would also be reducing the amount of chemo, which
» is in the blood, that the follicles would take in, making it less likely
» that the chemo will poison any follicles.
» If true, Cryotherapy would no help at all for affected with mpb.
» » I'm very excited on starting a new phase and new treatment approach. I
» » been searching on how to increase angiogenesis or blood vessel formation
» » the scalp. VEGF is one thing that increases that and there are several
» » pathways that are involved in angiogenesis. That includes histidine,
» » is precursor for histamine that helps in angiogenesis. Also,
» » like Latisse(bimatoprost) are also involved an increase blood vessel
» » formation.
» » Now I have been on Latisse again for 7 weeks now, and have taken
» » before I started and after... and will post them soon, so dont worry.
» » But at the same time I have been looking at other ways to increase
» » angiogenesis. I have always wondered why hair loss in men is in a
» » pattern. Hair at the back and sides always even on very old men, is
» » there yet they have no hair on the top, crown area and front.
» » This led me to findout out about skull expansion etc which makes sense to
» » big degree. It states that is responsible for bone resportion and
» » remodeling which does not stop just at puberty but continues througout
» » lifetime. It also states that people with more of a square head shape
» » a roundshape are more likely to keep their hair because their remodeling
» » happens in a different way and I can attest to that and have always
» » how Red indians, south american indians, and people of Alaskan Inuit
» » descent all have mostly square head shapes and barely ever have I seen
» » hairloss them.
» » So one route is to inhibit topical which I will do through topical
» » estrogen which might help to slow or alter the bone
» » But at the same time its obvious to me that when my hair loss started at
» » 17, with a very small bald spot right where the hair grows out of at the
» » crowne, it steadily and slowly over many years expanded to start
» » my entire crowne area... and than spreading in a circular pattern and
» » diffuse thinning than to the front too and also back area, but not the
» » bottom back where of course i have all my hair.... and where there is no
» » hard skull area.. but more soft tissue...so its like a progressive
» » if you will, that spread not rapidly if one thinks about it, but took
» » several years... so what is missing is the layers of fat and blood
» » espeically the browne adipose tissue which is " Cold exposure produces
» » adaptive hyperplasia and growth of brown adipose tissue (BAT), the major
» » site of non-shivering thermogenesis in rodents, associated with
» » angiogenesis in this tissue"
» » as mentioned in that article. From my research I have found it that
» » cryotherapy is commonly used to initiate angiogenesis! This is something
» » that can be done at home using different wart freezing sprays/etc that
» » freezing temps of -10 to -70 degree Celsius. Once the tissue is
» » at the much lower temperature, blood vessels form around the damaged
» » and than start spreading and growing into the damaged area and thus new
» » vessels are formed. This treatment is used for cancer patients who
» » from alopecia. you can google it and here is a link:
» » So your brown fat tissue is increaese as one of the websites relating to
» » skull expansion states is needed to increase normal hair regrowth,
» » thus that browne adipose tissue is missing or decreaed due to the
» » of the skull. And if we touch are top hard skull parts and right at the
» » back/top crowne area, we can feel that there is not much fat there,
» » compared to the very back or sides. So this all makes sense. If was
» » soley responsible for our hair loss as most of the corporate zombie
» » American pharmaceuticals will have us believe, just so we can buy more
» » their chemical castration which turns a man into a
» » with low libido and no self esteem, ya forget that but what I was saying
» » was --- than we wouldn't have hair anywhere, because actually causes
» » hair growth and not just all over the body but if you even just take
» » on the head, why is it that somehow isn't able to affect the hair
» » south of the horshoe line?? I mean, the same blood supply is flowing
» » through the entire body so cannot be a very significant cause in
» » loss. Now helps bone remodeling and resorption and in some people
» » to genetics and other factors it affects the skull more than some other
» » races, but the point is it is a problem that can be solved in my opinion.
» » I am going to attempt doing cryotherapy (freezing) my scalp few areas at
» » time, starting with the most bald/thinning, which is the crowne. Once
» » area starts to get revascularized and also browne adipose tissue fat
» » deposting again, than I am sure my hair will start to grown again like
» » already does on my head but something hard and big (my top skull area)
» » blocking my hair from growing as healthy and normally as before.
» » Curcumin, Resveratorl (decreases angiognesis) and grape seed extracts
» » all the other crap especially green tea all hurt
» » all hurt angiogenesis and really are a waste of time! and money! Think
» » about it.. .it has been decades since people have been taking all this
» » nonsense yet I have yet to see after sooo many years one real set of
» » pictures before and after.... wich photos taken every few weeks not just
» » one photoshopped lame picture... i have yet to see a single time that
» » of this crap grew hair!!????
» » So why are we still trying to use these same things in different
» » They dont work! I know why though and that is because we all have lost
» » so we are willing to try anything, even if that means try something
» » Trust me I know, im 28 and it sucks to not have my full head of hair like
» » did until I was about 23, than the hair loss just became very
» » It started of course when I was 17.
» » Now I am sure there some people with round skulls yet have a thick set
» » hair. But for the most part I have noticed it is guys with the arnold
» » terminator square head look that mostly keep their hair.
» » But again the point is more than the shape of the head,,,, is whats
» » underneath your scalp. If you are missing browne tissue adipose than you
» » have less vascularization and thus like the slow pattern i mentioned
» » before... it happens slowly and slowly until no more significant blood
» » vessels are there for hair to get nutrients.
» » So the current topical I am using mainly has things to encourage
» » angiogenesis.
» » I am using NO Infuse topical spray which includes l-arginine and other
» » things such as ATP for increased energy and nitric oxide production,
» » the lining of your blood vessels release, and which play a key role in
» » angiogenesis and blood vessel formation.
» » Also I have thrown in that same bottle,
» » 1. Nanogen VEGF Plant Serum
» » 2. Thymosin Spray by Douglas Labs (for possible thymosin stem cell
» » activation)
» » 3. Melatonin (which has been used to treat alopecia in dog fur, bet you
» » didn't know that )
» » 4. crushed Vitamin B-12 tablets
» » 5. Rasberry Ketone powder from capsules( for increased IGF-1 production
» » which basically leads to more skin elasticity and a healthier skin and
» » other functions. Decreases after age 30 so I figured if it helps with
» » probably good for hair. There are some studies that indicate that IGF1
» » not good for hair growth. But I find most state that it does help with
» » and hair, and not to mention proven for muscle growth. Body builders use
» » it. Key emphasis on the word 'growth'
» » 6. Also a few vials of bimatoprost(latisse). I use latisse seperately
» » directly from the little bottle it comes in on my scalp, but I also
» » it in my Super topical mix that I have also with everything else in it
» » mentioned above.
» » So with all this combined I feel like I am giving my scalp the necessary
» » ingredients to get my hair growing again through of course,
» » But seperately as I mentioned I will try the cryotherapy in the next few
» » days once I get paid at the end of the week. It won't cost much to get
» » stuff. Its available at walgreens and online. Key thing is to get
» » that goes below just -10 celsius so their is more tissue destruction.
» » Preferably around -40 to -70 degrees. The key thing is to do small areas
» » a time and not your entire scalp! I will probably split it into 4 or 5
» » segments so that it does not hurt too much.
» » The research I have done indicates that cold temperature leads to
» » angiogenesis in humans as well as rats/hamsters etc.
» » I guess that is the body's way of trying to continue providing nutrients
» » key areas of the body. It makes way more sense, all of this that is to
» » than the inhibition and body bloatin hurt huring Rogaine
» » we have been fed for sooo many years.
» » The stem cells in a bald scalp area are the same as everywher else on
» » scalp...
» » and they proved that they actually are very miniaturized hair follicles
» » still present in the scalp, but just invisible to the naked eye!
» » So lets see how this all goes. I will post pictures of my Latisse
» » (bimatoprost) experiment at the 2 months mark which is in about a week,
» » just hold on.
» » I would love to hear what you guys have to say.........and thanks for
» » reading my very long post, much appreciated !
