Replace Hair Loss Drugs With A Natural Remedy
Every year people spend thousands of dollars buying pharmaceutical replicas of medicines that are already available naturally. Mother Nature has provided us with hundreds of different cures and natural antibiotics but companies still feel the need to spend large amounts of money trying to invent a mimicking drug.
One example is the search for a remedy to hair loss to help treat male baldness. Human males start balding through a genetic condition known as Androgenic alopecia. A naturally occurring metabolite called DHT will attack the follicles of hair and which makes them stop growing, this is when a man will start going bald. By limiting the DHT production level, there is a way to prevent baldness and keep the hair follicles growing.
A drug called Finasteride is well known as an incredibly useful drug for preventing baldness by blocking the DHT. This FDA approved drug was originally created as a cure for enlarged prostate glands. Scientist found that when the trial group took this drug that many of the patients stopped suffering from hair loss. After studying further it was found that a high DHT level can cause both urinary tract problems and also baldness. So when the inflamed prostrate was treated by lowering the DHT level, the same cause of hair loss was treated as well.
The drug took off and the company was able to make a lot of profit by using Finasteride both as treatment both for prostrate and as a hair restorer. As with most artificial drugs there were side effects though including the possibility of birth defects if a woman even touched the tablets.
Urinary tract problems have actually had natural remedies for thousands of years. An example was found from an indigenous tribe who used a palm bush local to that area, this palm was known as the saw palmetto. An extract of this palm could treat urinary problems and the locals knew this so they would use it to treat anyone who was having those symptoms. Today, we have found that this extract works by blocking DHT which makes it a great hair restoration medicine. This remedy is completely natural and the extract can be found in tablets that can purchased at some pharmacy and local health stores. You may also be able to find them online.
