Cyclical Therapy in hair loss is a comprehensive, holistic approach to strengthening the hair roots promoting follicular growth.

Nutritional deficiencies are one of the most common causes of hair problems. Yet many experts recommend expensive and controversial medications (such as Minoxidil) that treat the symptoms, but not the root cause.

Nutritional deficiencies are on the rise becoming more common than we can realize. The deficiencies are multi-nutrient, multivitamin and multi-mineral in nature and not limited to single individual nutrients.

Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, a Japanese scientist who defined and studied the role of -AUTOPHAGY- was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2016. This once has formed the basis of Hair Fact cyclical therapy in hair loss for the past 15 years.

Autophagy is the partial self-destruction or regulated breakdown of deficiencies to compensate and provide requirements for vital cellular functions.

The low nutrient levels are compensated by Autophagy and by arresting the growth of new hair. Thus, you do not find clinically low levels of iron, calcium, amino acids, minerals or vitamins in hair loss patients. These levels are being maintained normally by the body not producing hair. The body is in a state of compensated failure. The moment you provide a little bit of nutritional therapy, the hair growth begins.

While diet is not a requirement of patients, studies have shown that improving dietary intake has a flow-on effect on the overall health of individuals. If hair loss is being experienced, benefits can be seen with improvement in diet. Strict adherence is not the objective, but reducing the frequency of bad (or favourite foods) and increasing the frequency of good food provides an effectual balance. Do not commit to one kind of food choice, all food can provide you with a variety of nutrients.
