In this in-depth article you’ll learn about one of the ways to stop your hair line receding any further.
Stopping hair loss isn’t a single-pronged approach, there are many techniques and formula’s that you need to use for it to be effective; this is just one.
It took a long time and a lot of in depth research to write this article, and properly applied, I’ve seen it make a huge difference to slowing down and reversing pattern baldness, so please read it all the way to end.
Ready to being? Okay lets go…
Flip through pictures of indigenous peoples and you might notice something curious. In the overwhelming majority of cases even the eldest men have full heads of hair.
And the pictures aren’t misleading; groups of isolated indigenous people simply don’t suffer from androgenic alopecia (the medical name for male pattern baldness)
“How can this be?” You might ask yourself, “All my life I’ve been told that male pattern baldness is genetic and there’s nothing I can do about it apart from take a harmful drug or just accept it and live with it.”
What is seemingly inexplicable is that when individuals from the same group leave their isolated homes and live somewhere more developed with logistical access to many different types of food, that pesky baldness gene just happens to spring out of nowhere.
In fact, the reason indigenous peoples never suffer androgenic alopecia is that they can only consume foods that are a perfect Genetic Food Match for them
By this I mean they only have access to foods which suit them genetically. When they leave their indigenous land, or technological development comes to them, then they start to have access to foods that do not suit them genetically, foods which are not a Genetic Match.
“Ok, but how can this help me?” I hear you asking
That’s simple; eat foods that correspond precisely with your personal Genetic Food Match.
In order to do this you must first find the foods that suit you genetically. The population is split up into 5 basic categories that you can find out about in more detail in my course.
An overview of Genetic Food Matching
Contrary to mainstream beliefs, there is no such thing as a universal healthy diet or a food that is intrinsically healthy. This simply overlooks the substantial physiological diversity among individuals.
Over many centuries humans have adapted to their varying environments and indigenous food supplies, developing markedly different dietary requirements and metabolic rates.
Genetic Food Matching takes account of our highly specific individual needs, and the rate at which we metabolise foods in our bodies.
It explains why fad diets like the Atkins diet work so well for some people and for others they don’t work at all. This quote by the Roman healer/philosopher Titus Lucretius Carus sums it up quite nicely-
“One man’s food is another man’s poison”
The basis of Genetic Food Matching is the rate at which we burn (metabolise) the foods we eat. Fast metabolisers thrive on foods that burn slowly, like heavier proteins and fats, whilst slow metabolisers do well on lighter foods such as vegetables, fruits and light proteins..
If you live in a developed country and therefore have logistical and monetary access to lots of different foods, chances are that the foods you eat are not matching very well with how fast your body is burning them.
Take the example of an Eskimo and an equatorial rice farmer.
The Eskimo thrives off a diet high in fats and dense proteins. His fast burning metabolic system is suited to foods such as seal, kelp, salmon and whale blubber. The equatorial rice farmer in contrast is slow burning, his metabolism is balanced when he consumes less energy dense foods such vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes.
The Eskimo would find it hard to obtain rice and high sugar fruit, whilst the equatorial rice farmer would have no way to get hold of caribou or seal blubber.
These are the extreme cases but the same holds true throughout the 5 Genetic Food Match categories. If the Eskimo and the rice farmer swapped diets they would both suffer from many of the modern diseases we see today
Male pattern baldness simply didn’t exist before industrial and technological advances made it possible to alter our natural habit of consuming foods that weren’t a Genetic Match.
There are other factors involved in the male pattern baldness phenomenon, which will be discussed in later chapters but Genetic Food Matching is in my experience, one of the most important.

Would you put diesel in a petrol engine, would you put petrol in a diesel engine? Of course not.
But the difference between petrol and diesel is the length of the carbon chain which affects how quickly it burns in the ignition chamber.
The same applies to the human body, except that our bodies have been evolving for much longer and are much more complicated machines so it becomes even more important to put the right fuel in.
Case study of Genetic Food Matching and hair loss.
The majority of the Japanese population are slow burners and do well on carbohydrate diets including lots of starchy vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes and light proteins.
However, after World War II, the population started to consume significantly greater portions of fatty meats that weren’t a good Genetic Match.
Although the dietary changes led to a height increase it also led to significant amounts of hair loss in Japanese men. Before WWII Japanese men had famously thick and healthy heads of hair.
This sudden increase in the incidence of hair loss has been well documented but no one seems to understand why. However it becomes clear in the context of Genetic Food Matching.
After taking the GFM test in the next chapter many men find they are in the strong or mixed protein categories, but they consume lots of carbohydrates and grains.
This is an absolute disaster for these men, and if they weren’t genetically predisposed to hair loss I have no doubts that other, more serious illnesses would be inevitable in their future.
In fact if you take the test and find you are in the ‘strong-protein’ or ‘mixed protein’ categories and you continue to consume refined carbohydrates it will make it impossible to re-grow your hair no matter what you do.
This was also the case with me, since I am in the strong-protein category. I actually feel lucky that I am predisposed to hair loss because if I wasn’t, I would never have discovered all of this knowledge and there would be much bigger problems down the line.
A quick bit of science (for those who are interested)
When we eat foods that aren’t a good Genetic Food Match our bodies are put out of balance like a diesel engine trying to burn petrol. Except that our bodies are biological mechanisms not mechanical, and this makes them much more complicated.
This can lead to an auto-immune response from the androgen DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which begins to treat your own hair follicles as foreign objects.
When our bodies are out of balance, the hair follicles become more susceptible to this auto-immune response and more likely to reject the hair follicles and cause miniaturization.
When DHT rejects the hair follicles they become thinner, shorter, and with each hair cycle they become weaker and less likely to survive.
There’s another reason Genetic Food Matching instantly reduces hair loss, and is summarised well by Dr Mercola.
“There is strong evidence that early male-pattern baldness could be a clinical marker of insulin resistance, a condition in which you lose your sensitivity to insulin, resulting in excess blood sugar.”
Dr. Mercola goes on to say
“I truly believe that had I known this information 20 years ago, I would still have a full head of hair”
When we eat foods that aren’t a Genetic Food Match, they either convert to sugar too quickly, or too slowly leading to insulin resistance.
In technologically advanced countries the population has access to just about every variety of food on the planet and this is taking its inevitable toll on men’s hair lines.
This point is highlighted when we look at people who have moved from these ‘primitive cultures’ that haven’t been exposed to Western influence, to technologically advanced countries with Western diets.
They start to experience the same ailments Western doctors have diagnosed as genetic, such as cancer, hair loss, poor jaw formation etc. It’s easy to follow the pattern of how it works.
A country or region slowly has access to more technology, and this means better logistics and food imports.
Food is imported that doesn’t match well with the population of the country and male pattern baldness starts creeping into the population.
The rates of baldness (including factors like severity, age, percentage of the population suffering from it) all increase in direct proportion to how badly the foods match the populations genetics.
I’m not against the West or technology in general at all, but we have to understand the pros and cons of technology to make the most of what it can offer us.
In order to stop your hairline from receding you need to eat foods that match your metabolic type.
If you continue to eat foods outside of your match then your hair will continue to recede and there will be little you can do to stop it. Even Propecia, or removing DHT directly from the scalp will have little effect.
Get the my hair loss course and find out which Genetic Food Type you are by using the test. It’s common to see improvements in hair lines within months when this technique is properly applied.
