Inversion Therapy: What is your view of this i.e hanging upside down for a few minutes each day to increase blood flow to the scalp. Any benefits to slowing hairloss or re-growth ?
The theory of baldness being due to lack of blood is outdated now. In fact there is no evidence to prove the scalp blood supply in balding people is less than in non-balding people, but when the balding happens, the blood supply goes down as a response to the hair being lost. Hair has a very high metabolic rate, so when it dies off from genetic balding, there is no real need for the blood supply that once bathed the hair follicles.
One of my patients actually had this type of therapy for 6 months, haning from his feel for a few hours each day. Guess what? No news is not good news! It did not work!
