I've been looking for research on hair loss on a raw paleo diet for a while, Pig thyroids bring your t3 & t4 levels up & allow your thyroid levels to grow back hair

Fortunately pig thyroids are very easy to get, ask for pig sweetbreads, & make sure they contain thyroids

http://www.naturalnews.com/024388_thyroid_hair_loss_hypothyroidism.html

Empirical evidence has already led to the belief that hair loss is the result of decreased metabolism in the scale follicles of people with low levels of thyroid hormone, resulting in early release of the hair shaft and root. Hair that is brittle, has split ends and breaks has been observed to correlate with low thyroid levels.

Many physicians and dermatologists diagnose low thyroid based solely on early graying of the hair and the loss of hairs from the outer ends of the eyebrows.



If you are lucky enough to have a naturopath or physician that practices holistic medicine, you will get the natural thyroid replacement, derived from pigs. The pig thyroid hormone is bio-identical to the human thyroid hormone and contains both T3 and T4. The most popular brand of natural thyroid is Armour thyroid. Since this will be recognized by your body as a natural substance, you will not build resistance to it, and there are no undesirable side effects. There are some physicians who have gone into the hormone balancing business who will be willing to treat you with this natural hormone. If all you have is a traditional doctor, you can try being assertive and firm, making it clear that you will only accept natural substances into your body.

It may take a series of baby steps to get your thyroid level adjusted to where it should ideally be. Many physicians are reluctant to prescribe a dose that will bring your levels of T3 and T4 back to levels considered prime. Many use tests that compare you to others your age. If you are 40, your level will be compared to the 40 year old population which includes many people with underperforming thyroids. So you will have to make it clear that you want to be supplemented to the ideal level. Once your thyroid hormone levels are stabilized in an ideal range, your hair loss or graying will eventually slow down and finally stop, and you will probably have a lot more energy.

Understanding hair loss

There are three common types of hear loss. General shedding occurs throughout the head. You notice more hair in drains, hair brushes, and on the bathroom floor. This is the most common form of hair loss typically found in people with hypothyroidism and also those with hyperthyroidism.

The second type of hair loss involves circular patches of hair loss, or complete hair loss resulting from many such small patches. This is usually the result of a fungal infection or autoimmune alopecia, and is not particularly associated with thyroid problems.

The third type is male pattern hair loss, and although men are the most susceptible, women get it too. It is concentrated on the temples and top of the head, and is caused by the enzymatic conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This conversion makes hair follicles shrink up and disappear. If you have been receiving thyroid treatment and your hair loss continues, this conversion is the most likely reason. It is easily remedied by taking Saw Palmetto, an herb sold in health food stores and by online health retailers.

Men with hairy bodies but little hair on their heads are usually converting much of their testosterone to DHT. This conversion may also put them at risk for prostate problems including prostate cancer.

Other alternative treatments

A recent study at Portsmouth University found that 90 percent of women with thinning hair were deficient in iron and the amino acid lysine, although this does not imply a causal relationship. Fish, meat and eggs are the only dietary sources of lysine. A vitamin, mineral and fatty acid supplementation program may also be helpful.

    I was diagnosed as permanently hypothyroid.  The head doctor of the department actually said out loud to me with witnesses that my (RawZi's) thyroid is DEAD and that I have no hope of ever reducing the synthetic thyroid dose they were giving me at the time.  The said many years in the future I would get heart disease if they reduced my dose at all during the time they were talking to me.  Years earlier I had lost fine hairs around my hairline.  I didn't get many grays, but I did get a few.  I knew I was too sick from their high dose of synthetic thyroid hormone, that I wouldn't have years in the future if I continued their high dose.  I quit their synthetic killer pills.  I tried natural thyroid pills, and it did help and with no side effects.  What got rid of those grays, has kept me away from all medicines for these past several years and re-grew those fine hairs is grass grazed high fat RAF.  I haven't even bitten into a thyroid gland.

    Is it true that hypothyroidism causes a hair-loss that's just above the ears?

A quick google search tells me that there has been no clinical evidence that this works at all. Some claim that it has had some promise with others reporting no difference.

David Wolfe has more recommendations to treat hair loss.

Here are some notes I took while listening to one of his recordings:

- the hair is mostly made of "sulfur" (found in: MSM, rain water, all hi protein are reach in sulfur - Spirulina, pollen, algae, maca [all contain sulfur bearing amino acids])
- mineralization in related to the cycle of the planets and especially the Moon (best results are when the Moon is moving towards fall [waxing] - your hair and nail will grow faster)
- silica (found in: nettle or nettle tea - reverses pattern baldness, horse tail - only from tea because if it's raw it has a vitamin B1 inhibitor, skin of cucumber, skin of tomatoes, wet grass)
- vitamin C (powder from plants, amla or amalaki, rose hip )
- only about 90% of the hair is growing and some of it stagnates
- use the power of grounding - touch the Earth (there is also such a thing as a grounding sleeping sheet)
- if we have too much DHT => pattern baldness (use natural DHT blockers, ex: Soapberry? [30:00])
- eat more superfoods
- stress is a HUGE factor - use the Ging herbs - Schizandra berry fortifies Ging, Deer Antler, Noni, Cordiceps mushroom, fo-te or ho sho wu (reverses gray hair)
- fresh vegetable juice every day
- pumpkin seed
- apply hemp seed oil on hair, or coconut oil
- sprout juices to reverse gray
- get a water softener because the hard water does not do good to the hair

If anyone tries some of this, please share your experience.

Yes, dht blocker's will most probably reverse male pattern baldness, which is what saw palmetto is supposed to do

saw palmetto just isnt very potent at it


Which leads to the question, why do we get excess dht in the first place, it must be related to a common function
