“The cells in hair follicles produce hair when they are furnished with everything they need. But in the scalp of a balding man, they do not get everything they need and as a result, the hair-producing cells gradually die off. Here we have an example of a mild ‘disease’ which is caused by cellular malnutrition.” —Dr. Roger J. Williams

“A living cell requires energy not only for all of its functions, but also for maintenance of its structure.” —Nobel Laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi

"What could be more important to understand than biological energy? Thought, growth, movement, every philosophical and practical issue involves the nature of biological energy.” —Raymond Peat, PhD


The Current View of Pattern Hair Loss is Unproductive (and Dangerous)

While it is often stated with great confidence that pattern pattern hair loss is the result of defective genes and "male" androgenic hormones (e.g., dihydrotestosterone or DHT), the theory is physiologically unsound.

After 60 years of research the "genetic-androgen" doctrine has produced a single FDA-approved "therapy" that works less than 50% the time and can result in permanent chemical castration (Minoxidil is a nonstarter for many men and women).

In contrast, castrates and pseudohermaphrodites--who serve as the foundation for all baldness research--are protected from pattern hair loss 100% of the time.

Steps Towards a 'Bioenergetic' View of Pattern Hair Loss

Standing on the shoulders of giants (e.g., Otto Warburg, Albert Szent-Györgyi, Gilbert Ling, Ray Peat and others), HAIR LIKE A FOX sets up an alternative 'bioenergetic model' of pattern hair loss with a focus on the smallest unit of life, the cell.

This same context elucidates simple yet effective therapies for halting and perhaps reversing pattern hair loss in a way that harmonizes with our unique physiology.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Several years ago I played bass in a major label rock band that was touring the world. You would have thought I was having the time of my life. Unfortunately, I was losing my hair in parallel with the bands success. To me, my hair loss was equivalent to the end of the world; I honestly did not want to live in a future without my hair. Yeah, the pressure on the band was that intense. As the band gained popularity, my anxiety increased, and I knew I had to be proactive before it was too late. I started bouncing from physician to physician searching for detailed answers to my problems. Out of the 10 or so naturopathic, orthomolecular, and anti-aging doctors I met with, 10 of them prescribed boatloads of pills and hormones that made me feel worse. It was not long before I realized that no one was going to fix my health for me. Years later, through vigorous research and an open mind, I have stopped my hair loss, resolved my anxiety and become the bull (libido is great). Make sure to do your own research and come to your own conclusions. Trust no one, including me. Please do not confuse me for a guru or an expert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well-Researched and Insightful 3. Dezember 2013
Von Nick Dalton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Hair Like a Fox makes a few relatively simple arguments. First, that the reasons a doctor will give you about why your hair is thinning and receding do not stand up to logical or empirical scrutiny. Second, that the typical medical treatments for this condition risk side effects that, for most people, can be far worse than losing hair. Third, that nutritional attempts to treat unhealthy hair and scalp are ineffective unless they target the root of the problem - poor cellular energy production.

What makes these argument difficult to grasp then is that they run counter to our everyday experience. We're expected to trust our doctors, readily take the medications we're prescribed, and eat heart healthy or low carb or paleo or vegan or whatever diet is the flavor of the month to address our woes. Working from a reference list that exceeds the depth and breadth found in most dissertations, Danny draws upon historical work on biological stress and hair loss to systematically pull apart what most people think they know about how to combat a diminishing hairline. In doing so, he makes a convincing case for treating the root problem through a lifestyle change. As it goes, your hair is simply one of the more sensitive "bits" to a persistent state of unhealth that begins in your cells.

The content may be a bit difficult in spots for those who are not medically or biologically minded, but Danny does his best to make the writing conversational. This style may turn some readers off, but I enjoyed it. (I especially appreciated the personal account of his descent into "hair obsession".) In any case, it's definitely not a reason to miss out on an exceedingly well-researched piece of work by a man who clearly has no interest in ideology, only getting to the bottom of what it takes to support health - hair and otherwise.

5.0 von 5 Sternen HLAF Review -- Andrew Kim 5. Dezember 2013
Von Andrew Kim - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Aside from what other reviewers have already pointed out, I thought the greatest strength of HLAF was the author's painstaking effort to not overstate claims. At no point does he ask you to trust him. Instead, he provides rich context and a logical progression of evidence and ideas that most readers, even those without any previous exposure to the information in the book, could follow to fully appreciate the recommendations towards the end of the book. In so doing, the expositions can get lengthy and convoluted in certain places, and I'd even hazard to say that some impatient readers may get lost in those expositions. It's, however, a price you pay, I suppose. And I can't fault the author entirely for it.

Although obvious, it's worth brining to your attention that guides on ways to treat and prevent hair loss, let alone a comprehensive one like HLAF, are rare. I have an extensive reference library and access to virtually every resource at my fingertips yet to ask me to find good information on ways to treat hair loss would be to ask me to perform a fruitless endeavor. And the information I have managed to obtain has been unsatisfactory and egregiously outdated. That's not to say that you should buy this book because it's the only one of its kind. HLAF not only happens to be interesting and filled with novel ideas, but it also contains an extensive list of recommendations that are easily doable.

One reviewer pointed out that the recommendations in the book are too restrictive. I have a different take. The recommendations are merely guidelines, and the foods in the book were given as examples. At the same time, the examples were chosen deliberately, as they are, in my estimation, the most accessible, cost-effective, and efficient means to fulfill the author's recommendations. For me, when adopting a new habit, examples are indispensable, without which things can get overwhelming and confusing quickly, and the chance of failing goes up exponentially.

As for negatives, I found a few spelling errors; the author needs to fix those for the next edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Serious talk, way beyond baldness 3. Dezember 2013
Von Mrs. Desz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Danny has the incredible capacity of transforming what could be a dull subject into something highly palatable. Each chapter is very well referenced and you don't get to the end of the book with empty hands and ideas, because he converts the scientific talk into practice. A book worth reading, even if you are not in the 'hairless club' - you will be surprised to discover hair loss is just one of the side effects of bad nutrition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A refreshing perspective. Not only on hair loss but our whole organism. 3. Dezember 2013
Von Ceci n'est pas une pipe. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
In western nations, male pattern baldness (MPB) is a ubiquitous condition that eventually affects 50%-100% of men. It is generally thought to be caused by genetic polymorphisms that cause the hair follicles to be more sensitive to androgens. The only two approved treatments that slow hair loss are finasteride and minoxidil. This is pretty much everything that mainstream medicine has to offer for this condition and this review could end here already.

Several dents in the mainstream logic of MPB makes one wonder and look for other causes. For instance, people with MPB have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and several other conditions, including insulin resistance and lower bone mineral density. Hair follicles of MPB patients often show features of inflammation and fibrosis. And the prevalence of hair loss increases with age, although androgens are known to decrease with age. How are these findings compatible with the mainstream “androgens are the cause of hairloss” view? Why is cardiovascular disease largely seen as a disease that is exacerbated by certain lifestyle decisions, but not male pattern baldness?

This book took up the burden to explain these discordant findings and offer an alternative view on MPB. A view that is based on the works of Otto Warburg, Albert Szent-Györgyi, Gilbert Ling, Ray Peat and other researchers. Central to this view is the concept of cellular energy production and stress. In 10 concise and very well-referenced chapters, Danny Roddy explores the role of impaired energy production and stress hormones such as estrogen, prolactin, cortisol and serotonin and outlines the factors that promote the shift from an unstressed to a stressed organism that loses hair. It ends with a list of dietary recommendations that are wisely formulated in a very open and non-overly restrictive manner.

I really like this book because its core notion is very optimistic, encouraging people to change their behaviour and thinking and by that change their health and well-being. It liberates you from the pessimistic thinking of genetical determinism, that we are all just “the product of our genes”.

I especially recommend this book for people who developed mysterious side effects (including hair loss) on flawed restrictive diets such as veganism and low-carb paleo. And for people that wonder how useful the mainstream American heart association dietary recommendations really are in the context of stress and energy metabolism.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Short and Sweet 2. Dezember 2013
Von Sean - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This is more than just a book about hair loss. It's a "rethinking" of nutrition, and how certain foods interact with your body on a cellular level. This book is well referenced, with the references taking up a huge chunk of this book's space. While that many references may sound scary, it just shows that Danny has done his homework. And his info and conclusions are not pulled out of thin air. No approach to hair loss, or better health will work for everyone. But this one may be worth taking a chance and seeing how it does for you. You won't come across many other sources of information this well thought out in regards to nutrition, or hair loss.
