||Q. Will my hair
come back after completing Chemotherapy?
A. YES. Hair
will come back on its own. However, because of damage to
the DNA, RNA, and change in the enzymatic metabolism of the
hair follicle, the hair that will come back may be brittle,
curly, lighter or darker and microscopically may be smaller in
diameter or may be de-pigmented.
|Q. Why is it necessary to
use Chemo Hair RX after Chemotherapy?
|A. Chemo Hair RX is a Potent
Topical Vitamin and Mineral formula that is essential for the
repair and synthesis of the DNA and RNA damaged by
Chemotherapy. These vitamins are precursors of several
cytoplasm enzymes and co-enzymes of the follicular cells.
Folic acid circumvents the actions of dihydrofoalate reductase
enzyme and helps in synthesis of thymidylate from deoxyuridulate
which are essential for DNA synthesis. Zinc sulfate strengthens the
disulfide bonds - essential in strengthening the hair.
Ascorbic palmitate acts as a reducing agent vital in cellular
respiration. As DNA fully repairs and cytoplasmic
metabolism turns to NORMAL, this yields
NATURALLY STRONGER and FULLER
Since Chemo Hair RX puts the "frozen"
hair follicle into a mitotic growth spin, this will make the
hair come back EARLY and EXPEDITIOUSLY
(within 6 to 8 weeks of
|Q. What are other benefits of
Chemo Hair RX in cancer patients?
|A. These essential vitamins
and minerals will get absorbed through the skin into the
systemic circulation and will help in re-generating the
suppressed bone marrow from chemotherapy. These
vitamins will help build up the red cells, white cells,
platelets and overall boost the immune system.
|Q. Why do you not recommend
using Gamma Linolenic Acide (GLA) or Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA)?
|A. GLA and ALA are known
to have an effect on dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes
male pattern baldness. Loss of hair from chemotherapy has
nothing to do with DHT.
Moreover, GLA may increase the effect of
anti-cancer chemotherapy treatments such as doxorubicin (adriamycin),
cisplatin, carboplatin, idarubicin, mitoxantrone, Tamoxifen,
vincristine and vinblastine.
|Q. Would you recommend thymus
gland extracts in cancer patients?
|A. I do not know the
answer. However, as an oncologist, I would be reluctant
in using any glandular extract that may have a tumor promoting
effect or may potentiate proliferation of cancer growth.
|Q. Will Chemo Hair RX help
hair growth in alopecia acretta?
|A. No. Alopecia
acretta (male pattern baldness) is related to DHT and NOT to cellular damage from
|Q. How do I use Chemo Hair RX?
|A. It is best to massage
the bare scalp with Chemo Hair RX twice a day for 10 to 15
minutes, and let it dry naturally.
|Q. Can I use Chemo Hair RX
during cycles of chemotherapy?
is no harm and no side effects from using Chemo Hair RX during the
repetitive cycles of chemotherapy. As the ingredients are
basically vitamins and minerals, they would not interfere with
any chemotherapy. However, it will not prevent the hair
from falling off with the treatments. Nevertheless, with
certain kinds of chemotherapy regimens, it may delay the hair
