Male Baldness Does Not Have to Lead to a Broken Heart

July 18, 2013

I once had a case where a male victim experienced a mild myocardial infarction (heart attack). I believe it was the result of a “broken heart.”

He had male pattern baldness. He had documented that a wig was worn for two years. He also had written how bad he felt about being bald.

I want all men to know that there are new products to help with male pattern baldness. RegenePure Precision Minoxidil Spray is a revolutionary hair loss treatment that will forever change the way men fight back against male pattern baldness.

A second product RegenePure® DR contains Ketoconazole, a powerful antifungal that is often used to treat dandruff and makes the hair look and feel thicker. In recent studies, it has also been shown to disrupt the production of DHT, which can curb hair loss and help to stimulate growth. But this does not stop with one powerful, high-quality ingredient. RegenePure® DR is packed with other beneficial elements, including Saw Palmetto extract, Vitamin B6 and Zinc Oxide. Niacin, Caffeine and Linolenic Acid are also included to stimulate the scalp, while Emu and Jojoba oils keep the skin supple and rejuvenated.

The hair loss shampoos are formulated with world-class ingredients and powerful restorative properties to bring out the best in men’s hair.

Adverse Drug Reactions

Recently there was a new Canadian study that stated there was a “link between some medications and serious health problems.” (Posted by Tom Lamb at study went further to say that 1 out of 9 visits to the ER were medication related. As a nurse working in an acute care setting I often see patients admitted to the hospital who are on multiple medications and they are unfamiliar with the names of their medications let alone why they take them. Taking Dr. Johnson’s nursing pharmacology course has been very eye opening to me to see exactly all of the potential problems between medications and how dangerous different interactions truly can be. Patient safety should always be our first priority in the health care industry. When patients are discharged home it should be our priority to keep our patients safe by teaching them how their medications interact together and could potentially cause adverse effects. By being diligent in our education for our patients on their medications there is the potential to not put individuals in harms way from the medication that is meant to keep them healthy.
