Pattern Hair Thinning and Hormones in Food with Trichologist Brisbane

Pattern hair thinning also called androgenetic alopecia, is caused by the following triggers, hereditary factors, hormonal factors, environmental factors and free radical effect. Pattern hair thinning is a gradual miniaturisation of hair only in the pattern areas and is not physical hair loss as hair falling out. The hair miniaturising is caused by dihydrotestosterone (DHT) binding to receptors in the pattern hair thinning areas only and is caused by the above triggers.

If animal protein/products are part of your healthy diet, I encourage you to be mindful and choose high-quality, hormone free products. The food animals eat dictates their health, and this ultimately travels up the food chain and determines what health benefits, or lack of, we gain from eating animal products. Beef should be grass fed, grain fed cattle is high in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats and often contains toxic remnants from the hormones and antibiotics used during the industrial production process. Grass fed and finished beef, on the other hand, contains higher concentrations of essential nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid and levels of synthetic hormones and antibiotics.

Pattern Hair Thinning and Hormones in Food with Trichologist Brisbane:
• Beef should be grass fed
• Poultry should be hormone free
• Eggs should be organic
• Fish should be wild caught

• Pork and lamb should be organic

If poultry is on the menu, it should be labelled hormone free. Free range and RSPCA approved does not mean it is hormone free and can be a misleading label for consumers. The same goes for eggs, free range does not tell you what the chicken ate and if it is hormone free. The safest option for buying eggs is to choose organic.

Fish need to labelled wild caught, if this is not clearly stated then it is most likely farmed and will deliver no healthful benefit, but the same detrimental effects of grain fed beef. Pork and lamb are not yet clearly labelled so choosing organic is your best bet. In Australia larger supermarkets are now labelling their produce so it is up to you to choose the safest ones.
