Grey Hair Linked to Heart Disease
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:29:26 pm »
You guys know from my sage brew grey hair treatment that anti-inflammatories (probably) seem to have success against grey hair.  Peroxide levels are supposedly the culprit and so this makes sense.  More evidence of this was indicated in this recent study where grey/white hair is tied to heart disease, i.e. inflammation may be the root cause of both:

"Gray Hair May Predict Heart Disease

Posted on April 11, 2017, 6 a.m. in Cardio-Vascular Diagnostics Skin-Hair

Research reveals a link between men with gray hair may and a heightened risk of heart disease.

 Gray Hair May Predict Heart Disease

Most people associate gray hair with the natural aging process. However, new research indicates that gray hair might mean more than the fact that one is aging. Research made public at the recent EuroPrevent 2017 event links the presence of gray hair to a heightened risk of heart disease in men. This is not to say that every man who has gray hair is at risk of a heart attack. Yet it seems as though the graying of hair and atherosclerosis have similar mechanisms like oxidative stress, senescence of functional cells, DNA repair, hormonal changes and inflammation. Additional research is necessary to determine the cutaneous signs of risk that could help medical professionals take preventive action early on in the cardiovascular disease process."

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

I think the sage brew is just a dye. If it was more than that, don't you think there would be a variety of successful treatments by now? I mean, anti-inflammatories are not new and the guys in hair loss forums have been putting all kinds of stuff on their hair for decades (including various anti-inflammatories). Improvements to grey hair would have been pretty darn obvious by now I think.

My grandmother was mostly grey at that age (when she was still having kids, no less). She is 94 now, with not a hint of heart disease. So if you are going grey really early, that may just be genetic.
Age: 36
178 lbs 5'8''

Current Treatment: 50 mg testosterone cypionate IM, twice a week
Low T Symptoms: Chronic pelvic pain, and other neuropathic pain.  Mild anxiety, low energy and low motivation
Meds: Amitriptyline (for pain, not depression), Clonidine (for sleep, not blood pressure)

Well, first of all, its not a miracle cure.  It just got rid of a lof of grey but certainly nothing you could sell.  And the reason I dont think it's a die is that it changes the color of the roots.

Well sage boosts catalase and catalase is certainly well-respected to n the research:

https://www.google.com/amp/amp.usatoday.com/story/2388619/

"Several supplement makers say the enzyme catalase can prevent the growth of gray hair."

Peroxide is the main culprit in grey hair?  Dang it, I'm trying to remember lectures from Ben Lynch on the enzymes that break down peroxide.  I think glutathione is the big one here.

Think modern medicine wants to CURE or PREVENT heart disease?

TREATMENTS, they like.  CURES...  Not so much.
43 years old
5'7", was 220 pounds when trouble started, now down to 165
Trouble began with abrupt ED Early May '15
Initial T level 130
Started Clomid in hopes of rebooting system June '15
Currently taking 25 mg eod and .25 mg Arimidex every 4 days
T level 480 or so at last reading
ED in check with 2.5 mg Cialis eod and supplements:
POM juice, L-Cit, Pycnogenol

Morning anxiety currently in check with GABA taken every night

Biggest current worry is heart health:
Aortic stenosis (very mild for now)
CAC score 156(!) at age 42
Lp(a) is a shockingly bad 390 nmol/L -- TRIPLE the "extremely high risk" level!
Homozygous for the bad "G" variant of SNP rs10455872, which increases Lp(a) as well as odds for aortic stenosis and coronary artery lesions. 
I think I know what trashed my heart...

40 mg Crestor and baby aspirin every day
CoQ-10, Vitamin K2, and Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract every day too
Walking 10,000 steps a day

Not to be too jaded, but there are many examples of this:

a) Most cardiologists seem to hate lifestyle intervention, and, of course, those would eliminate 90% of their business.

b) Most endocrinologists seem to hate TRT, and, of course, TRT would probably remove a third of their business (diabetes)

If you find those, let me know.

I've been trying to get this across to people for years. Doctors have been trained to treat SYMPTOMS, not diseases. It would be a complete disaster for the medical profession, the drugs industry, the teaching hospitals, the regulatory bodies, the high street pharmacies and all the so-called health care professionals if the majority of people were healthy. If you think your government want you to live to a ripe old age, you are out of your mind. Once you stop working and paying taxes, the sooner you shuffle off your mortal coil and join the choir invisible, the better. Think how much money that they will save on your pension and they can pocket a bit more for their next Mercedes or holiday in the Bahamas!

Would a dye just wick down into the root of the follicle? Seems possible, but not sure. I guess what I don't understand is the sage thing has been around for a long time and somehow a non-dying effect has been overlooked? And many topical anti-inflammatories of all sorts have been applied to the head (for a variety of things like hairloss, skin conditions, etc.) but no improvement to grey hair. Its just not adding up to me.

Also, you could make the argument that all kinds things have been put the face of people with grey facial hair. Yet somehow this pretty obvious connection has been missed?
