Here is an answer to a letter with some very pertinent questions from a very well informed member of one of the world’s largest forums on HAIR LOSS and MPB…many of whose members have adopted the MALINIAK METHOD and reported their great results.
It may interest some of you who have not heard of it and it is a short SYNOPSIS of the entire MALINIAK METHOD phenomenon;
Thank you for your interest in my theory and for having at least read the BOOK, but I have to tell you that the principles behind the MALINIAK METHOD are way beyond the point of debate any more because they have been confirmed in numerous independent scientific studies which I cite on the website, in the book, and on our Facebook page. I have answered these same questions before, but since you took the time to read my book, I will address your comments one time, but not back and forth any more.
I published my first book in 2010, and since that time, after endless debate and challenges on various HAIR FORUMS, three(3) independent scientific studies have been published which confirmed the validity of my two main principles.
More importantly, any “theory” is only as good as the the results it produces, and in the last two years, my own amazing results, and those of my initial test subjects, who I at least had access to here in Montreal, have been independently REPLICATED in numerous other people all around the world that I have no control over, and replication in others is the MAIN confirmation of the validity of any theory…and all with NO DRUGS, NO LOTIONS and especially NO SURGERY.
Some people may continue to critique the quality and quantity of my proof on this subject, but they are just “naysayers” who will not believe anything, even if a busload of NUNS signed an Affidavit that they witnessed all the progress and success of all of our members. They are in a state of perpetual denial and I do not waste any more time on them, BUT…I do understand it and feel empathy for them because they have been disappointed so many times before with useless products , so I don’t get too mad unless they make insulting and defamatory remarks which don’t have anything to do with the topic of discussion;
– firstly the BRIAN J. FREUND study, which is the most recent and comprehensive study ever conducted confirmed that a tight GALEA is the first step in triggering the cascade of other events that form part of the entire HAIR LOSS and MPB syndrome, AS I PREDICTED….and as many others before me debated endlessly.
The effect is to constrict the blood vessels leading to the follicles which causes a reduction of BLOOD FLOW. This then creates an environment of HYPOXIA, a low OXYGEN situation which leads to the OVER-PRODUCTION of DHT…something which elaborates on and adds to my initial “theory” that DHT “accumulates” or “clogs” the follicles…meaing it does not “circulate in and out the way it is supposed to.
Whatever the correct word… accumulation, clogging or over-production, the end result is the same;
TOO MUCH DHT…and contrary to what you say it is still the UNIVERSAL consensus and conventional wisdom that DHT is the actual “killer” of the follicles…although the exact mechanism is not understood or elaborated yet. But it only becomes a “killer” when there is much too much of it, otherwise it is critical and necessary for proper hair growth…which is why not every man is bald, even though every man has a GALEA and lots of DHT.
It is only men with a very tight GALEA and really TOO much DHT who lose their hair because that excessive DHT now becomes a “killer”. This is the essence of the MALINIAK METHOD theory.
If you are not happy with the word “accumulate” or “clog” , that is your opinion. But I believe that it is logical to conclude that when there is TOO much DHT present because it is over-produced, and when it does “circulate” as freely in and out of the follicles as it normally does, due to restricted blood flow, that it would “accumulate” and “clog” the follicles and in that state…it interferes with the normal metabolism in the follicles, including its interaction with the SEBUM and this triggers the whole syndrome. And I repeat, the results we have had confirm the validity of MY opinion on this subject as far as I am concerned.
– The other study is the one by GEORGE COTSARELIS which confirmed finally that dormant follicles could be revived, contrary to the previous conventional wisdom and where he relates it to the presence of stem cells which can still be activated to form pro-genitor hair growing cells. By the way, he is the world’s leading authority on hair loss and the main proponent of the role of PROSTAGLANDIN receptors. My position on that subject is that it may be part of the actual “mechanism” which makes follicles go dormant but that if you restore the proper blood flow it becomes unnecessary to address or correct that problem and it would only lead to the use of another DRUG.
– Now there is the third Chinese study I cite on the website from OMICS which confirmed the benefits of massage to the TOP of the scalp which their working hypothesis was that they were trying to “thin” out a thickened scalp layer and improve circulation…and even they got results. They do not use the word GALEA but it is obvious to me that this where their effect is being achieved because the last layer of the scalp on top is NOT the MAIN source of the restricted blood flow.
Targeting this layer would only improve the LOCAL circulation and would obviously not be as effective as targeting the MAIN “blockage” coming from underneath the GALEA, where the blood comes from. Their process is probably “softening” a thick GALEA which is probably an additional issue in some case…but I do not believe it is enough of a universal problem to explain the epidemic of the millions of cases of hair loss and MPB.
THE “OLD” FOLLICLE TRANSPLANTATION STUDY
The study about the transplantation of follicles you ask about is the famous NORDSTROM study of 1979 which is what has prevented us from solving this problem till now because it WRONGLY concluded that blood flow is not the culprit. That study we now know was fatally flawed because it failed to control for the presence or absence of DHT in either of the follicles they transplanted and it’s conclusions have now been superseded by the more recent 2011 FREUND study.
In conclusion, and contrary to what you say about “empirical” evidence, the FREUND study does constitute such evidence as to the central role of a tight GALEA and restricted blood flow in HAIR LOSS and MPB….IT IS ALL SO OBVIOUS THAT IT POINTLESS TO BELABOR IT ANY FURTHER.
Some people may want to go on debating this ad infinitum and will forever be paralyzed by uncertainty and skepticism and end up doing nothing, or worse, will continue to use useless and dangerous drugs
Many others have analyzed the overall logic and evidence of my theory and the existing results and have decided to join our group and have adopted the MALINIAK METHOD and reported results which some have called AMAZING and SPECTACULAR.
Even though we could always use more “PROOF”, more testimonials, more photos( which some trolls will then call FAKE )…the EVIDENCE we already have is more then enough for most people to satisfy them that this MALINIAK METHOD is valid and that it really works.
I do not intend to debate these principles any more, so people can examine it and anyone who disagrees with it can just NOT do it.
If you have a hair problem, I sincerely hope you try it…you will not be disappointed and I help everyone as much as they need…for FREE. You have the book…you do not even have to buy a machine from me and it is a ONE time purchase. If you do the leg work yourself, you may find a good quality USED violet ray device for very cheap. Just be sure that if you do not get the exact NEW one from us, that you at least respect the SPECS that I list on the book.
Other devices are USELESS and you will NOT really be on the MALINIAK METHOD.
So, as far as I am concerned, and as many others now agree…THE MALINIAK METHOD theory IS A LEGITIMATE AND ACCURATE DESCRIPTION OF THE WHOLE HAIR LOSS AND MPB SYNDROME and the two stage treatment method has been shown to be really effective to STOP HAIR LOSS and GROW NEW HAIR.
