Hair Loss: Options for Restoration & Reversal educates readers on the variety and effectiveness of hair-loss treatments. Why was this an important book for you to write?
Hair loss is a pervasive problem affecting both men and women, and it can have profound psychological effects on the afflicted, especially women. Hair loss is currently experienced by more than 80 million people worldwide, which encompass 50 million men and 30 million women. It is a problem in need of a solution.
I became interested in the causes of hair-loss related issues twenty-five years ago, when I began to experience some hair thinning. In search for a possible solution to ameliorate or reverse my thinning hair, I began an empirical journey of discovery that continues to this date. I’ve experimented with a multitude of balding prevention recommendations; some were effective, and others were a complete waste of time and financial resources.
My objective for writing this book is to educate the consuming public about the effectiveness of the many available hair-loss treatments and restoration modalities available in a very deceiving industry. It was important to write this book because I believe that anyone experiencing hair loss will save a considerable amount of time and money by reading this comprehensive and detailed guide about hair loss. This book will educate the consumer on what works and what doesn’t, and this along makes this writing project important. It provides the reader with a historical perspective regarding hair-loss, as well as its causes, treatments, and promising future trends. In fact, we are living in a very exciting and promising time for hair-loss research.
What is a common misconception you find people have about hair-loss and restoration?
A common misconception about hair loss is that it is caused by a genetic predisposition inherited from the mother’s side. Other myths are that sexually active men become bald sooner, which implies that a hormonal component is the catalyst, or that only older men go bald or that wearing hats and wigs makes you lose your hair.
The fact of the matter is that currently, there is no conclusive evidence that explains all the causative factors that lead to male and female pattern hair loss or androgenetic alopecia. The cause is a multivariate problem that can encompass a hormonal component, a disease process, stress exposure, medications, hygiene, and even nutritional deficiencies. Therefore, education is the key to mitigate the risk of been duped by a deceiving industry. Moreover, education will place you in the right path to a worthwhile solution.
What type of research did you undertake to write this book?
I performed a comprehensive literature review of the field of hair loss research. I basically analyzed the majority of worthwhile research studies to bring forth only the information I believed to be crucial to understanding this topic. Additionally, I also interjected my own personal experiences with this topic since I’ve been afflicted by this condition also. However, through my personal education and initiatives, I have been successful in mitigating and ameliorating my hair loss significantly.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I have begun to research the literature on the topic of Diabetics with emphasis on type 2 diabetes.
I believe type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease process that is preventable and reversible.
However, it is a very unforgiving disease if the discipline to adhere to a regimented eating plan is not meticulously maintained until a physiological reset (re-balanced) is achieved between the liver and the pancreas.
My goal is to have this book ready by December of 2019 or possibly early 2020.
The condition of hair loss is a topic of significant public interest, and understanding the pathophysiology and treatment of the different types of alopecia (hair loss) will surely have an impact on the men and women afflicted by this condition. Hair loss is a pervasive problem affecting both men and women, and it can have profound psychological effects on the afflicted. It is a problem in need of a solution. The author’s interest in the causes of hair-loss related issues surfaced twenty-five years ago when he began to experience some hair thinning. In a search for a possible solution to ameliorate his thinning hair, the author began an empirical journey of discovery. He experimented with a myriad of balding prevention recommendations, which led to the creation of Hair Loss: Options for Restoration and Reversal.
The objective of this award-winning book is to educate the consuming public about the effectiveness of the many available hair-loss treatment and restoration modalities. It is an important, comprehensive, and valuable tool for both men and women who are afflicted with hair-loss problems. It provides the reader with a historical perspective regarding hair-loss, as well as its causes, treatments, and promising future trends.

For anyone who suffers from hair loss, the topic can be one of immense frustration and aggravation. Not necessarily because of the hair loss itself, but because of all the conflicting information found on the topic. Any information coming from a seller or manufacturer of a particular hair loss treatment methods will likely be biased so as to pull in additional paying customers, and even worse than that, much of that information is often either outdated or just plain false.
Sifting through all the misinformation can seem like a daunting task, but when a book like Hair Loss: Options for Restoration & Reversal by Gustavo J. Gomez, Ph.D. comes along everything seems quite a bit clearer. And the best part is, there does not seem to be any angle in its composition or style other than to give as much information on the topic as possible, in as organized a way as possible.
Gomez’ book feels like a scientific study written for the non-scientist and, in fact, it is a peer reviewed work like those found in scientific journals. The author outlines just about every aspect of hair loss that is available to the field of hair loss treatment, and he does so in a way that just about anyone can easily understand.
Starting his book with detailed information about the way hair grows on an anatomical and physiological level, Gomez helps his readers get a feel for the underlying causes of hair loss, so they are better equipped to understand what the various treatment paths discussed later in the book attempt to address. Identification and classification of different types and stages of hair loss, in both men and women, is then discussed at length, before a comprehensive breakdown of all the known causes of hair loss. Once the causes for hair loss are understood, the reader gets to see how and why various treatments have been used throughout the history and what the most popular approaches are today.
The quality of work that went into Hair Loss: Options for Restoration & Reversal by Gustavo J. Gomez, Ph.D. and published by Halo Publishing International of San Antonio, speaks for itself. Hair Loss is neither a light read nor a quick one, but it easily accessible by all. Gomez produced a work that provides pretty much everything a person would need to know about the subject of hair loss, and that is partially why it has won so many impressive awards.
