Here are the top five reasons why men lose their hair:
Genetic predisposition – male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men.
Hormonal imbalances – such as low testosterone, high DHT (dihydrotestosterone), and thyroid dysfunction can all contribute to hair loss.
Nutrient deficiencies – low levels of biotin, iron, and other vitamins and minerals can cause hair loss.
Stress and anxiety – chronic stress and anxiety can cause hair loss by disrupting hormonal balance and blood flow to the scalp.
Certain medications and medical conditions – chemotherapy drugs, autoimmune diseases, and scalp infections can all cause hair loss.
Men want to have more hair because it is a sign of youthfulness and vitality. Hair loss can negatively impact self-esteem and confidence, leading to decreased quality of life and social interactions.
Functional medicine offers several solutions to help men regain their confidence and improve their hair health. Hormone replacement therapy can be used to address hormonal imbalances that contribute to hair loss. Customized supplement regimens, such as biotin and iron supplements, can help address nutrient deficiencies that cause hair loss. Lifestyle modifications, such as stress reduction techniques, regular exercise, and adequate sleep, can also help improve hair health.

By identifying the underlying causes of hair loss and providing customized treatments and lifestyle modifications, functional medicine can help men achieve optimal hair health and overall well-being.
