Do you have thinning hair? Hair loss?
As some of you know, I have had several surgeries in the last few years. The process of surgery is not a problem for me. I do not get sick from being put to sleep or have any terrible side effects. I am glad about that part.
But, surgery has changed my metabolism, scars on the old body, and the hair on my head.
I was going a bit bald. So, I asked my Dr on one of my many visits since 11/2007. He recommended a natural treatment.
It is one Niacin and a 81 milligram/baby aspirin at night, before I go to bed. He said the Niacin is good for the problem and the baby aspirin makes the Niacin work better.
I've been on it for just over a month and I have little hairs coming in all over my head.
Since my last surgery, I had lost most of my body hair, meaning no shaving under the arms or legs. (freedom) I noticed yesterday that I do have a few hairs on my left leg and a few on my big toes (yuck) so it may cause hair to show up in other places.
It is much cheaper than OTC hair regrowth products and since it is a natural substance, should not have long term side effects.
I am not a doctor and do not recommend this on a medical basis. You should check this with your own doctor before starting it. Also, please note it is an aspirin that is included so if you are allergic, taking blood thinners, or are facing upcoming surgery, please consult your doctor.
This sounds like a TV commercial, complete with disclaimer.
