Advil liquigels for spots?

Okay, so I was thinking about something... Researchers have developed topical Ruxolitinib, right? So I have a question - Has anyone tried poking holes in Advil Liquigels to apply to the scalp to see if that might have any effect? I mean, Ruxolitinib was developed for arthritis to tamp down inflammation, Advil is an OTC anti inflammatory. Id love any feedback about this.

Paranoid of trusting my hair won't fall out again

I am 37 and have had alopecia since i was 16. For the most part, I have been lucky.

People on the trials blog posts missing

Lustrous Hair herbal supplement from Sprouts

Has anyone tried this? I am curious and normally don't buy supplements geared towards such things, but most of the ingredients were Chinese, and it seemed to be full of roots and things that looked legit on Web MD. It was also only $15.99, which while not cheap is not expensive either and seemed worth a shot. I just began a gluten free diet ten days ago and am taking methylsulfylmethane and glucosamine with condroitin currently. While nothing is a miracle cure, it can still turn out to be a… Continue

Alopecia and GMOs

Just throwing this out there. I have watched countless videos on Youtube (as I'm sure many of u have as well) about Alopecia and how many people seem to have positive effects of regrowth from organic diets. I am weak in that regard and am currently working on gettimg better with my diet, but I wondered if even in some small way there might be some connection, and if the incidences of alopecia are higher here in America than in other countries? This is just a curiosity, but I know that none of… Continue
