I do know I met you on the integrative dermatology convention and I used to be actually excited to be informed extra about this venture you’re running on and sought after to have you ever on my podcast. You can inform everyone about it. So you’re doing, you’re running on a venture or to lift consciousness, train other folks about hair loss and hair thinning. So let’s get started with you explaining why are you so this? Why used to be this one thing you sought after to tackle? Yeah, neatly I as a dermatologist, I see men and women in my workplace regularly who’re affected by hair loss and hair thinning and you realize, I see so much of prerequisites, psoriasis, melanoma, which is existence threatening and there’s so much of variability in how other folks manner it, however with hair loss it’s nearly common struggling.

Dr. Bodemer:            Certainly by the point any individual will get to my workplace, that’s the placement and regularly they’ve waited six to 9 months to your have so much of hope that I, that I will do one thing to get them again right here. They had once they had been 20 and oftentimes that’s now not an possibility. There are indubitably some issues we will be able to do. Um, and indubitably way of life problems that I certainly communicate so much about with my sufferers, however, however we will be able to’t all the time do something positive about it. And so I believe it used to be simply that common struggling and I simply sought after to seek out one thing I may do this we’re simply serving to you struggling. And actually at center I’m an educator and a information in phrases of that’s how I see my position as a healthcare supplier. I actually know, really feel like I supply healthcare for myself, my circle of relatives, however I will information others with the information and experience that I’ve. And so I, I sought after to construct those instructional movies about problems comparable hair loss after which additionally to speak about the choices for those who’ve type of gotten to a spot the place it’s like, neatly that is what it’s going to be, what do wigs actually appear to be? Feel like, what will have to you search for? So that’s the second one segment of my venture, which can get started most probably the top of December, early January now.

Dr. Cates:            Amazing. That’s unbelievable. So, um, and also you don’t have any hair presently. So what’s that about?

Dr. Bodemer:            Well, I determined that if I’m going to do that venture, I actually sought after to only move all out and um, and I, I took off a pound of hair on August 16th, um, and I had actually lengthy simply type of a brown reddish brown hair and used to be one thing I by no means actually idea of. And so I’ve been dedicated to shaving my head for the remaining 3 and a part months. Um, and I’m doing that about each 3 to 4 days now that it’s gotten less warm. My hair in fact does develop slower within the chilly so I don’t must shave fairly as regularly. This is set day two. Um, so I do have somewhat bit of enlargement, however I, I sought after to actually be capable to communicate to my sufferers who’re struggling, who take a look at me and be like, yeah, simple so that you can say you’ve were given all this hair. And I sought after so to sit down with that. And I gave myself type of an finish level for time. So I wouldn’t be capable to simply say, k, I see I’m executed shaving as a result of I used to be executed a month in the past, I’m actually executed with shaving, however I believe it’s been just right for me to be informed about, you realize, this having to stand it, having no like, k, I’m going to be like this for no less than some other month and, and you realize what, I’ve an finish level.

Dr. Bodemer:            So much of my sufferers don’t, you realize, so and I do know that it’ll develop again and so much of my sufferers know that their hair gained’t develop again. So that amazing quantity of struggling. I do know I will’t mimic that and feature a complete revel in of it. But I sought after to return as shut as I may to actually figuring out what other folks undergo. And so what have you ever been experiencing about what it’s love to, not to have hair? What has it been like? Yeah, it’s chilly. It’s actually chilly. And it’s attention-grabbing like, so I did this in August when the elements used to be hotter. I are living in Wisconsin presently. We have snow at the floor as I believe you do the place you’re at. And um, and I, I put on hats so much, however I all, I am getting much more, I am getting so much of consideration round most cancers.

Dr. Bodemer:            Um, and in order that’s introduced up a pair of issues for me. One is once I’m dressed in hats or scarves or issues to hide up my head to stay it heat, so much of other folks make assumptions about my stage of well being and I’m within the thing more that not too long ago has hit and he’s like, wow, it’s so not unusual. People requested me so regularly about that, that it simply speaks to how not unusual that illness is in ladies of my age staff and the way simply simply actually unhappy this is. And how with so long as we’ve been preventing, you realize, preventing most cancers that we actually, we’ve became it into a protracted illness. But, however now it’s anticipated {that a} lady of my age would have most cancers. Um, so, in order that’s something. The thing more is this concept of privilege. I had lengthy hair that used to be, I might move to mattress with a rainy get up with it, you realize, run my arms via it.

Dr. Cates:            I didn’t even personal brush till I had children, I by no means owned a hair dryer, so I actually took it with no consideration and as I’ve been in, that is in fact much more repairs for me than my lengthy hair and figuring out that so much of ladies of African American of African descent or who’ve extra kinky, curly hair, what extent they move to, to make their hair just like the hair I had. Um, and in order that’s been a actually attention-grabbing type of section of this venture that I didn’t actually be expecting to return up however now not in opposition to, however simply to be uncovered to the entire hair business and um, and what is going into making wigs and the place the hair comes from and all of that.

Dr. Cates:            Well, I guess you’ve discovered so much alongside the way in which. I’d love to speak subsequent about what are the reasons, what are the reasons of hair loss and there’s overall hair loss after which there’s partial hair loss and hair thinning. So are you able to provide an explanation for a bit of about that?

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah. Yeah. So, so there are, as a dermatologist when any person is available in and says here’s getting thinner or it’s falling out or it simply isn’t simply large because it used to be and we actually take a look at the scout to seem and spot what may well be happening there as a result of we adore to damage down right here remaining into two classes. Is it scarring or non scarring? And that’s very vital as a result of in case you have right here follicles that experience scarred, there actually isn’t a option to convey that again. It’s a scar. Tissues already set in. I’m normally. There’s an important quantity of irritation that occurs earlier than that scarring units in. So if we’re in an energetic inflammatory degree of hair loss, there are issues we will be able to do to a minimum of lend a hand decrease that irritation and decrease that scarring. We even have genetics that play a job, so.

Dr. Bodemer:            So there’s type of, while you type of spoil it down, their scarring and nones going, there’s additionally genetic hair thinning, hair loss, that kind of one thing that we’re all type of programmed. It actually doesn’t apply any explicit lineage. We used to type of assume it adopted the dad’s aspect after which in case your mother have been right here, you will have been right here, however that it wouldn’t apply with your dad who used to be bald that you will have becoming as a lady. Um, nevertheless it actually doesn’t. There’s so much of genes that play a job in that. Um, and we see that during two other development sorts for women and men. Men generally tend to move, you realize, receding hairline and they have a tendency to move bald. Whereas ladies, we simply generally tend to move skinny on best and we simply didn’t see much more of our scalp. And that’s one thing that so much of ladies actually fight with.

Dr. Bodemer:            Um, you realize, indubitably there are illness prerequisites the place you’ve too many androgens floating round that male sort hormones. And that’s essential to differentiate if a lady is in her thirties and nonetheless in type of the kid all the way through segment of existence and having this very vital androgenetic or, or patterns sort hair loss than we actually wish to take into consideration what, what are your hormones doing? And will we, you realize, is there one thing you wish to have to fret about there? So, after which after we get into the scarring and non-scratching there, so much of it’s autoimmune comparable and I do know you talked so much about autoimmune illness with, with your visitors and with your shoppers and that certainly, you realize, Alopecia Areata is one that once other folks say allocation, that’s what they take into consideration. They take into consideration those little spherical patches that kind of move may move everywhere your scalp flares up normally all the way through occasions of pressure.

Dr. Bodemer:            And then normally the hair will develop again inside of a yr and other folks will, some other folks have one episode, nevertheless it may well be relapsing. And then that’s the place other folks will lose all of their hair after we get the alopecia totalis, which has all of their scalp hair. And then universe. Alice has all of their frame right here. And so there, you discussed there are other sicknesses that play a job on this. Um, what are some of the ones? Um, neatly, um, with the alopecia areata that the autoimmune sort, we do regularly see thyroid problems move alongside with both earlier than or after in phrases of a minimum of the way in which we detected at the assessments that we generally use. It can be related with different autoimmune sicknesses like mess around. I’m going in diabetes, I’m the, there’s some other sort of. So Alopecia Areata is a non scarring sort of hair loss and the right here normally comes again in until you’ve one of the ones very vital popular circumstances.

Dr. Bodemer:            Then there’s additionally a scarring of alopecia known as Lichen planopilaris. And that presentations up in a couple of other ways. Usually there’s so much of stinging, itching, burning at the scalp. It normally presentations up after menopause, even if I’ve to mention within the remaining 10 years we’ve been seeing it in males which we by no means noticed earlier than and in more youthful ladies. And I believe that most probably speaks to a few of the hormone disruptors we’re seeing in our surroundings. Um, however, however that’s, in order that’s a scarring sort, um, with, with telogen effluvium, which is a actually not unusual sort of care. Lots of other folks are available in they usually’re simply dropping tears. The dropping everywhere, other folks can lose as much as 70 p.c of their hair in a single of the ones episodes. Um, and that’s normally because of pressure. Um, we all the time assume of pressure as like, oh, pressure is like an emotional weak point.

Dr. Bodemer:            So much of occasions in our tradition we painting it as this detrimental factor that we need to fight and triumph over. But actually any alternate our frame sees is annoying at the gadget. And so even actually just right issues. I’ve ladies are available in, like I simply were given married, we moved to a brand new town and we purchased a brand new space. I’m like, neatly, there you move. That’s so much of pressure. It’s, it’s just right, nevertheless it’s modified and, and you realize, pressure helps to keep us transferring ahead. It helps to keep us making an attempt new issues. And so it’s now not all unhealthy. It’s how we relate to it. I’m indubitably such things as thyroid illness and dietary deficiencies could cause pressure at the frame and that can result in hair loss maximum frequently thyroid illness, even if it’s now not related with the autoimmune sort of hair loss. And then iron deficiency is a large one. Vitamin D deficiency is one we’re studying extra about.

Dr. Cates:            Okay. Alright. So when any individual is available in to peer you and what are the assessments that you simply do? You clearly you do a bodily examination to have a look at their hair and what the development is, however what type of assessments do you do?

Dr. Bodemer:            Well, indubitably having a look on the Scout, simply the development, but additionally what’s happening with the scalpels or flaking scaling redness. And then um, we’ll ask about signs normally will take a look at fibroid. So we’ll do a thyroid panel on a affected person or every so often we’ll simply test a Tsh, relies somewhat bit on their signs. And circle of relatives historical past will regularly search for an iron or Ferritin stage is the person who I take advantage of. Ferritin is a measure of how neatly your frame type of your frame provide, so you’ll be able to have an ordinary iron stage, but when your provides are low, you’ll be able to dip out and in of deficiency sufficient that it affects your hair grows.

Dr. Bodemer:            So that that’s the, that’s the check that I used to paintings for iron ranges general. And then I all the time test a diet D stage on sufferers. We know that diet D ranges are related with hair loss of all kinds, if it’s related with autoimmune prerequisites. It additionally seems that diet D can take a dormant hair follicle and stimulated to develop. So even in the ones sufferers who’ve androgenetic or the the development hair loss, I’ll test a diet D. it’s lovely not unusual within the house that I are living up within the northern portions of the rustic. So that’s certainly one thing we search for. And then in case you have considerations about explicit autoimmune illness, we would possibly do a little panels in search of autoimmune. One of the kind of comfortable assessments that we do is to drag your hair. And in order that’s one thing that individuals will have to be ready for.

Dr. Bodemer:            We’re now not seeking to harm you’re harm you. Um, and we’re now not seeking to make you lose extra hair, however we’ll normally do a number of mild tugs across the scout to only see what right here comes out. And then we’ll take a look at that hair in particular having a look on the hair bulb as a result of that provides us an image of the place the hair used to be at within the enlargement cycle when it’s popping out. Um, and we need to the agent that’s a resting segment. We need to see a pleasing little membership like Tila, virgin hair popping out. Um, after which if we see hair in numerous phases that, that may give us some clues to, to different issues that may well be happening. So you pull up the Harry take a look at it beneath microscope. Um, yeah. And I in fact, I’ve somewhat tiny pocket, actually top energy magnifier, so I’ll simply pull out my German mild and make contact with it, um, or if, for those who don’t have that then beneath a microscope.

Dr. Cates:            Yeah, that’s nice. That’s nice. And you realize, it’s attention-grabbing what you had been announcing about diet D. What I’ve spotted that my sufferers, so much of other folks which can be poor in a single or poor in so much of them are the ones two come in combination, iron deficiency. So much of other folks which can be poor in that. They even have diet D deficiency. So, um, I, you realize, I didn’t actually know that a lot about diet D as being related with y’all, in order that’s nice to grasp. Okay, nice. And so, after which there also are a situational issues that purpose hair loss, like most cancers remedy. Right? So that’s some other large one who you almost certainly see.

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah. And you realize, maximum of the time at this level all of us type of be expecting it. The most cancers sufferers predict it and deal with it, the differing kinds of chemotherapy. There are such a lot of in the market now have other ranges of affiliation with hair loss. There are some the place we don’t be expecting the hair to return again, that it frequently results in everlasting hair loss. Um, fortunately that’s the, maximum of them. The right here we’ll come again, it regularly comes again other and you realize, normally like other folks will come and say like, oh my hair got here again thicker or curly or a special colour. And that’s as a result of that actually robust drug is intending to forestall enlargement and that actually does rattling it damages the hair follicles to level and adjustments the way in which that they, um, that they serve as. And so it actually can in fact even alternate the feel and high quality of your hair.

Dr. Cates:            Yeah. So while you stated that some other folks’s hair will develop again what those more than a few for the more than a few causes, um, and addressing the foundation purpose or the what’s, what’s happening in the back of it? Uh, however every so often even addressing, there have been prices. The hair doesn’t develop again, Huh?

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah. I imply, and that comes so much. There’s, there’s the genetics that move alongside with this that we actually can’t run clear of. Certainly way of life will get handed on, now not via our genes however via our conduct. And so, you realize, you’ll be able to nonetheless deal with some of the way of life problems that may may give a contribution, however for those who come from a circle of relatives the place the entire males are bald by the point they’re 40 and your mother have been right here, it’s, you realize, there’s most probably now not an entire lot that we’re going so to do to stay your hair having a look adore it did while you had been 20 or 30.

Dr. Cates:            Right. Are there, are there any procedures or issues that individuals can do even though to Kinda, you realize, Kinda get that soar began right into a to lend a hand boost up that?

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah, so indubitably, I imply, I believe managing your pressure neatly in order that it doesn’t have a detrimental affect for your existence. We can positive getting just right sleep that, that does a pair of various things as it additionally is helping keep an eye on, keep an eye on your hormones extra as it should be. Um, after which consuming a vitamin actually wealthy in phytonutrients, loads of plant based totally meals, loads of antioxidants are going to lend a hand, you realize, positive positive nutrients and minerals do lend a hand with hair. We don’t essentially see them as a lot while you’re in particular in search of reasons of hair loss. But like diet A, selenium is a large one. Vitamin E, all of the ones stuff you’re going to get sufficient of for those who’re consuming for essentially the most section.

Dr. Bodemer:            I actually plant wealthy vitamin, however there may well be scenarios the place a multivitamin, it’s essential there to type of fill within the gaps. Um, after which, um, after which indubitably there are issues that we will be able to do from a medicine standpoint to vary hormones if that appears to be an issue or to lend a hand arrange thyroid problems. And then, after which from procedures, there’s one thing in the market that’s at the more moderen in phrases of, a minimum of the dermatologic packages is that this platelet wealthy plasma turns out lovely promising. Um, I don’t do it myself. I paintings in a large college atmosphere and I’m within the midwest the place we have a tendency to be gradual to evolve those, those more moderen issues. But I do have a pair of buddies in Chicago who’re doing it for hair loss and um, and you realize, the testimonials are superb and while you move at the Internet to seek out superb issues, it sort of feels adore it works for approximately part of other folks and there are two other ways.

Dr. Bodemer:            So mainly with this platelet wealthy plasma, um, execs drawing your blood and spinning it down, preferably two times since the first time you’re gonna separate the crimson blood cells from the plasma after which you need to split out the plasma to the heavier, um, platelet wealthy section. And that has so much of enlargement components, so there are so much of causes it will have to paintings. Once you’ve that platelet wealthy plasma, some other folks will say you’ll be able to simply rub it at the scalp. I don’t know the way, for those who’re going to get sufficient absorption, for those who simply rub it at the scalp, um, other folks will do microneedling, which is the place you are taking this little curler ball and roll it around the house that you simply’re in need of it to get into after which practice it topically. And then the 3rd means that individuals do it as to in fact inject with, with insulin syringes actually in finding needles into the scout.

Dr. Bodemer:            I’ve some considerations concerning the injections simply because which may be inflicting somewhat extra harm than you need. Certainly we do this so much for alopecia areata and different sorts of inflammatory prerequisites. We inject steroids into the scout every so often to type of relax that irritation temporarily. Um, however I believe the micro micro needling adopted via prp most probably, you realize, I believe that’s most probably one of the simplest ways to move. But like I stated, it’s, it’s now not, it’s now not magic for everybody. Um, and why it really works for some and now not others is the well being of the person. I imply, for those who don’t have wholesome, for those who don’t have just right platelets, um, you realize, for those who’re now not residing a wholesome existence otherwise you’re over a undeniable age, they only, it simply doesn’t have the similar impact. I believe that’s section of it. Yeah. Yeah. You’re, you’re completely proper.

Dr. Cates:            I believe I hadn’t actually idea of it in the ones phrases earlier than, however yeah, for those who’re consuming so much of meals that’s type of feeding enlargement and that that’s gonna make your blood richer and in addition your hair follicles are going to have higher microcirculation. So the, the blood vessels attending to, there’s the ones follicles are going to be more fit as neatly and extra ready to enhance enlargement.

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah. I like, and I like that microneedling too as a result of such as you stated, it stimulates the move. You’ve were given a host of issues happening with that that I believe can be useful. I’ve had a number of other folks in my podcast speaking concerning the microneedling of the face and the PRP facials and so I believe, however, however I believe it’s just right for other folks to grasp that it can be executed at the scalp to lend a hand with hair and you realize, it’s now not 100 p.c, such as you stated, it’s now not, now not everyone will get their hair rising again and, and section of that may well be genetics.

Dr. Bodemer:            I’m section of it may well be the well being of the person. There is usually a lot of other, so much of various factors. Also discovering a just right practitioner, any person that’s doing a actually just right process with it. The process itself most probably performs a job too. Yeah, completely. You need to you’ll want to’re running with any person who is aware of what they’re doing. Right? And then they’re there. So much of way of life issues that we, we indubitably don’t need to diminish any of that. I imply, having your process is, you realize, generally is a good thing, however actually would get again to the fundamentals of way of life. Um, you realize, uh, you realize, I do know additionally sleep is essential workout, proper? So, so the ones sorts of issues are just right. Yeah, completely. You know, I, I, I believe I noticed somewhat meme or somewhat, somewhat determine that used to be, you realize, after we’re, after we’re dealing with problems at the type of, at the out of doors we adore, I do know you assert this always to get to the foundation of the issue, get to the foundation purpose of no matter is inflicting this and actually take into consideration feeding the soil and in our techniques, our blood is our soil, our blood nourishes us in anything else that we will be able to do to lend a hand stay that wholesome via vitamin and workout and sleep in actually keeping up just right hormone balances and keeping up a just right intestine microflora that, that makes us a just right lawn for wholesome, wholesome pores and skin, wholesome hair, wholesome nails, wholesome organs.

Dr. Cates:            Absolutely. Yeah. And so all of that I believe is making a actually nice basis with hair enlargement in such a lot of various things. And I like that you simply’re doing this as a venture. So let us know extra concerning the venture and the place you spot it going, the affect that that you need it to have.

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah. Well, I wish to simply succeed in as many of us as I will. This all of were given began with a foolish concept the place I used to be like, Oh, I’ve had quick hair. I donated it time and again. My ladies and I’ve executed other, wash out your colours. I’ve had it inexperienced and red and my sufferers type of know those that know me are available in they usually’re like, k, k, what are you doing now, Dr Omar. And then I am getting to type of communicate to them about this venture. But I type of idea, I ponder what I appear to be bald.

Dr. Cates:            Maybe I’ll simply do this. Maybe I’ll simply shave my head and spot. And then that week simply as destiny or the universe, no matter directs us to what we wish to be having a look at. Um, I noticed a host of sufferers with Alopecia Universalis and Cortellis that day or that week. And um, and as I sat there in type of listening to their struggles about dealing with problems that come alongside with, with the hair loss that they have got and the truth that the ones other folks generally don’t regrow. Um, I, I, I type of idea extra about it that, neatly, how may I, possibly I may, will have to, may shave my head in some way that may lend a hand other folks. And then I finished up getting not on time as existence simply will get busy and all the way through a, a sort of not on time degree, I used to be going to do it in June and feature all of it executed via the top of this summer time. I had these kinds of type of concepts about the way it used to be going to move.

Dr. Bodemer:            And I met this lady within the hairpiece business and he or she stated, let’s move forward and let’s, are you aware while you’re executed with this, while you’re regrowing your hair, I need to put you in those other wigs. I need to display other folks what their choices are. And I wouldn’t have had that if I had type of caught to my type of self imposed time table. And so now that I’m type of a two or 3 weeks past the place I was hoping to be when I am hoping to be rising my hair now already. But I stay pondering like there’s, there’s causes and I’m extra will come of this or I’ll succeed in one additional particular person as a result of of this time beyond regulation. I don’t know what it’s, however I do know in some sense I’ve achieved my objective, the, the, the sufferers that had alopecia, that experience alopecia Universalis that impressed me to do that.

Dr. Bodemer:            They’ve already come to me and advised me how, um, how a lot more empowered they really feel and the way happy they’re to peer me in the market doing this and elevating consciousness for them. So that feels actually enjoyable. But I actually need to succeed in as many of us as imaginable. And with the second one degree, I believe it’s even, it’s as essential to, to only lend a hand other folks perceive what their choices are. Because when any individual like me or any person such as you who has beautiful hair, you realize, they usually type of say, oh, neatly, possibly you need to take into consideration a wig. I’m, it’s, it’s actually laborious for other folks to abdomen. And I may remember that. When you assume, neatly, you don’t have any concept. We all assume of those gnarly issues that our children had been on Halloween that you’ll be able to’t get your arms via and that it’s important to type of untangle on the finish of the season once they move within the gown been, however they’re, some are actually gorgeous and you realize, value level performs a job and there’s other qualities, however there’s such a lot in the market and I simply need to open other folks’s eyes and, and lend a hand them see themselves differently and lend a hand them see attractiveness differently as a result of we now have such circumscribed concepts about what it’s to be an exquisite lady.

Dr. Bodemer:            And he normally doesn’t play into that. Sometimes it does. And it’s an identification factor. You know, so much of ladies who select it are actually tough and in need of to, um, showcase that energy to the sector. But so much of ladies that I see aren’t, they need to are compatible in, they need to be observed as gorgeous and female. Um, and, and so how are you able to do this while you don’t have so much of hair? What, what is going to those tactics be offering? And, and if you’ll be able to type of get previous that identification of, of your identification being tied up when your hair. I’m hoping to turn those that those may also be actually amusing. It may well be amusing to be crimson head sooner or later after which belong to the following or no matter it’s. Um, so I’m, I’m actually hoping simply to empower other folks to grasp what their choices are and perceive what’s happening with, with, of their state of affairs somewhat bit higher.

Dr. Cates:            Yeah. I like all of that. You’re speaking about him and what’s attractiveness and what, you realize, what, that’s such a lot a attractiveness radiates from the interior out. You know, it’s, it, it comes from one thing so a lot more than simply what other folks see at the floor of the hair and pores and skin and all of that. There’s, there’s one thing that is available in and you realize from us that, that we will be able to radiate that attractiveness with no need to have an entire head of hair. I imply, I used to be on now not way back, I used to be in Uganda with visiting the youngsters there after which all of them shaved their heads they usually’re simply so gorgeous.

Dr. Bodemer:            Yeah, you’re catching me somewhat early for that one. I’m, I hadn’t actually executed tremendous deep into that. I’m into that but. But um, and, and section of that, that’s section of why I need to do this entire 2d segment is as it’s so overwhelming. I’ve executed a pair of google searches, um, and I’ve in fact toured some salons and that, that I direct sufferers to as a result of they do a actually just right process. Um, and so I might suggest, I believe it’s actually essential to the touch and really feel them as a result of that actually affects the way you’re going to really feel dressed in it as a result of we contact our hair all of the time. And I’ve had the revel in. I, um, I’ve in fact officiated a pair of weddings all the way through this time only for buddies. It’s one thing I’ve type of executed simply simply to, only for amusing.
