EP21 Danny Roddy - Carbon Dioxide, Pre-Mature Aging and Hair Loss
Several years ago I played bass in a major label rock band that was touring the world. You would have thought I was having the time of my life. Unfortunately, I was losing my hair in parallel with the band’s success. To me, my hair loss was equivalent to the end of the world; I honestly did not want to live in a future without my hair. Yeah, the pressure on the band was that intense. As the band gained popularity, my anxiety increased, and I knew I had to be proactive before it was too late. I started bouncing from physician to physician searching for detailed answers to my problems. Out of the 10 or so naturopathic, orthomolecular, and anti-aging doctors I met with, 10 of them prescribed boatloads of pills and hormones that made me feel worse. It was not long before I realized that no one was going to fix my health for me. Years later, through vigorous research and an open mind, I have stopped my hair loss, resolved my anxiety and become the bull (libido is great). Make sure to do your own research and come to your own conclusions. Trust no one, including me. Please do not confuse me for a guru or an expert.
Danny Roddy is an independent health researcher focusing on hair loss and how you can avoid it simply by looking at it from a biochemistry perspective and approaching it with the right kind of nutrition. In this episode, we talk about the relationship between hair loss and carbon dioxide production in both men and women as well as how supplements could be negatively effecting your health and how to support your thyroid with food.

Generally in life we're shown this cookie cutter version of what we're supposed to create and everyone's personal trajectory is really unique and rarely adheres to the cookie cutter version so we create shame around that.
