Hi Doctor Rassman; I am a happy patient with NHI and have a couple of questions I would like to pose to you.
- Do you have an opinion on a new drug called ViTrichol? Dr. Randall Sword backs the product and information can be found on his website.
- Have you heard of a new topical based solution called Scalp Med? I saw an infomercial about the product.
I have reviewed the websites reflecting your questions. The FDA does not allow claims that suggest an effective treatment for hair loss without substantiation with good scientific research. If such research was done for ViTrichol, where is it? Could there be some get rich quick scheme to promote an unproven treatment? Doctors are entitled to give opinions on everything and anything. For example, I have opinions on why my dog’s ticks & fleas go away when I scratch his head, rub his belly, or when I use some of my deodorant on him. However, I do not think that I could substantiate my opinions on how to influence my dog’s ticks & fleas or bottle my deodorant with what would be an honest representation of a cure for my dog’s fleas. I would ask the person who backs the product what the benefit to him/her is if you buy the product? I am suspicious until I read the supportive science behind it. ‘Let the Buyer Beware’, so the saying goes.
As for ScalpMed, I’ve posted recently about this here: Scalpmed.
