Meds for hair can hurt down there

You want to see a man go through every stage of grief at once?

Don’t take him to a funeral… and don’t watch him as he gets bad news about his health.

You won’t even see it when he’s fired from a job or dumped by his wife.

Put him in front of a mirror, and let him catch that first gleam of scalp where his hair used to be!

Most guys will do ANYTHING to stop those luscious locks from falling out.

All I can say, gents, is be careful what you wish for.

There are a couple of drugs out there that really can bring back your fabulous Fabio hair — but you might not live the Fabio lifestyle if you take it.

You won’t find yourself on the cover of any romance novels because these drugs can end any hope of romance.

New research confirms that two popular hair growth drugs – finasteride and dutasteride – can cause erectile dysfunction in nearly 1 in 20 of the men who take them.

Even more incredibly, these problems can kick in within DAYS of starting the drug… and linger for YEARS after you’ve stopped taking it.

It’s being called a “side effect,” but it’s not really a side effect at all.

It’s the drug working EXACTLY as intended!

The same meds are sold at higher doses for prostate cancer and “work” by blocking 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme that converts the manly hormone testosterone into its even manlier form, dihydrotestosterone.

Yes, it sucks some of the manhood right out of you.

The drugs are, in essence, a form of chemical castration at those higher doses, which is how the mainstream often treats prostate cancer since the tumors can feed off male hormones.

Because dihydrotestosterone can also attack hair follicles, they figure a lower dose — blocking it just a LITTLE — can help protect hair without castrating you.

Who are they kidding? It’s clearly not working as advertised: Nearly 5 percent of men suffer at least some degree of erectile dysfunction after taking the lower doses approved for hair loss, according to the new study.

And in 1.4 percent of men, the problems “down there” don’t go away after stopping the drug.

They can linger… and linger… and linger.

These folks battle bedroom problems for an average of three-and-a-half YEARS after they quit the med!

That’s a high price to pay to keep your hair.

If your hair’s falling out… and you’re not ready to shave what’s left… you’ve got other options.

It’s not wearing an ugly rug on your dome.

Saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol can often calm down hormones just enough to keep your hair growing, but not enough to block your manliness.

Speak to a naturopathic medical doctor to see if this combo might be right for you.
