hi - alopecia calling - help!

Hi there,
I am suffering from Alopecia, and as you can see from my profile, I have been taking Finasteride 1mg daily since June. I have noticed hair regrowth on the crown and hair on the sides of my head have become stronger, the problem I am having is that the regrowth has slowed and I just have baby hairs, I would like something to resume the speedy regrowth and also to thicken the hair and create regrowth between the crown and towards the front of my head, where hair is long and spaced and stringy. I am 29 and Male in the UK.

I also have gastric reflux problems for which I am taking 20mg Omeprazole twice daily, which started regrowth before I had even got any finasteride, so could this be a gastric problem. I have had a gastroscopy from the mouth to the stomach but they didn't find anything. A doctor has said that I might have a hiatus hernia but they don't treat this with surgery in the uk unless it's severe.

The Image attached is of the problem area with little regrowth

Thank you kindly in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi you can start using a cell salt nat phos 6x for your reflux.
Ainsworths homeopathic pharmacy sells the cell salts.

Go over to Joe de Livera' site, www.joedelivera.com and read
about his acid reflux protocol. You cannot keep taking the Omeparzole
bc it starts to have side effects on the bones.

Try this first and get the reflux under control and change your
eating habits, stop acidic foods, chocolate and do not eat
2 hours before bedtime. As you get better you won't need
the nat phos 6x- cell salts work on the interior of the cells themselves,
and then the cells can work right absorbing nutrients and they
are safe to take for weeks at a time.

This is the most important thing to handle right now, after that
you can work on the alopecia and your overall state. I have not
checked what is in the Finasteride, but if it has ingredients similar
to Propecia or Rogaine, side effects of reducing testosterone are
way worse than losing hair.

I looked up the Finisteride today and see that it has
to be taken 'forever' or the hair will be lost as soon
as you stop. Makes no sense to keep drugging the body
long term, bc you know its not going to be good
down the road.

Hi Simone717,

Thanks for the quick response, I have been meaning to reply but have not had time. I will definately look into trying out the remedy you suggested for the acid reflux. As soon as I have it I will report back and let you know if it has helped. One question though, do I replace my omeprazole or do I take both the remedy you suggested and the omeprazole side by side?

Many Thanks
Billy K 8 years ago
Please replace the Omeprazole with the remedy.
simone717 8 years ago
so replace 40mg omeprazole with the cell salt nat phos 6x - what dosage or is 6x a dosage?
Billy K 8 years ago
also is nat phos an abbreviation for Natrum Phosphoricum (found on ainsworths in tablet form)
Billy K 8 years ago
Hi billy,

The natrum phosphoricum is correct
and the potency is called 6x.

Go to Ainsworths home page and put
Schussler Tissue salts in the search
box- a button will show up and you
click that and see the cell salts- there
are twelve of them- and order the
nat phos 6x.
simone717 8 years ago
The lowest potency I can get on Ainsworth's website is 9x - should I get this and in what form?

Thanks again,
Billy K 8 years ago
Hi- you are looking at remedy potencies not cell salts.

You are on the wrong page on the Ainsworths site.

Go to the home page,
Put cell salts in search box.
A page will show up, go to the bottom - and
see the button called Schusslers Tissue Salts and click it.

There will be two choices- the amount of bottles
and click the salts and pick Nat Phos ( it is only
in 6x and that is what you want)
simone717 8 years ago
Hi found it - thanks - what dosage should I take when I get it?

Hi, thanks - I will let you know how I get on
Billy K 8 years ago
Hi, sorry for not replying in so long, I was wondering if you mean I should take 3 tablets twice a day?

Also when should I take the 3 drops of Arnica,


Billy K 8 years ago
Hi, Also, will NAT PHOS 6X interfere with Rispiradone 2mg and Depakote (Valporic Acid) 500mg?
Billy K 8 years ago
Hi Billy,

If you want to try the Nat phos and take 3 tabs after each meal, that is ok.

It is a very low dose of a trace mineral. See what goes on- report 4 days
after you have tried it.

You are taking some powerful medications and I was not aware of this.
Homeopathy works on the totality of all that is not well with a person,
including physical and mental areas. And, I don't know all the side
effects of these medicines which may be affecting your digestion.

What I would suggest is that you go to a very experienced homeopath
in the UK or one online that has had success in the areas you need
medication for. If you want help finding some homeopaths, you can
ask me.

I am not sure on the Arnica with what you are taking. Nat phos
with what you are taking might just be a non toxic help for the reflux
but may not be a cure for it due to how other medications may
affecting your system.

Homeopaths would not tell you to just take remedies and go cold
turkey on your medications, you would gradually reduce them as
you felt better with the homeopathy.


simone717 8 years ago
Hi Simone,

I would love to have some help finding some homeopaths locally, also, I would like to know if taking Nat Phos 6x is okay with my other medications,

Kind Regards,

Billy K 8 years ago
Yes, the nat phos 6x is ok. Try it out for 4 days as I said and see
what the effect is on your reflux.

What area of the UK are you in? bc I will first look at who is close by and then
also at Skype if that would be a better
choice of practitioner.

Hi Simone,

Hi Billy,

Here is a person in Merseyside that I
think you would do well with.

I looked over people for a couple hours, and she is very well educated, having
graduated from 3 homeopathy schools, and she helps with nutrition, diet,etc.

You know this is covered by the National Health Service, you just need
a letter from your GP.

This would be a good start to get you on a road to better health and
reduce medications, etc. Please give this a go.


simone717 8 years ago

Thanks, I will get a referral as soon as possible,



p.s. the Nat phos has started working wonders, spots on my face have started disappearing and healing
ovenight, my stomach feels ten years younger - Thank you!
Billy K 8 years ago
Just want to point out that there are several companies that sell such medicines in the UK. And much cheaper.

Thanks Parakletos!

Hi Billy,
Cell salts are a sub branch of homeopathy. They are very mild
and meant to balance out the interior of the cells.

The standard procedure for cell salts is to take for
3 weeks and then take a week off. You can resume if needed.
So you have to be aware that if you start getting loose
stools, etc then you had a bit too much. Reduce the doses
to twice a day and further as needed.

I just want you to understand, this is not like Western
Medicine. It is supposed to clear up the problem and not
have to be taken 'forever'.

Also see the link where to get the cell salts from Parakletos-
that is much better than Ainsworths.
simone717 8 years ago
I will get the Arnica from there,

Also, is there homeopathic medicine that can replace my other medications

Secondly is there homeopathic medicine that can resolve 50% paralysis? (An uncle had a stroke and can't use half his brain, half is face, one arm, and a leg, all on the same side.


Billy K 8 years ago
Hi Billy,

1. Do not get the Arnica for yourself ( I told you that earlier)
2.Go see the homeopath about your other conditions.
The goal of the homeopath is to make your system
well enough that you start to reduce and go off
your other medications gradually. As you improve
you may not need them at all -

The focus of homeopathy is to cure you so that you
don't need anything, not even the homeopathic

3.How old is your uncle and when did he have this
stroke? What other medications is he taking at
this time?
