These photos were taken by me, and are being posted here in hopes of charting the changes that will hopefully occur over the next 12 months at the hands of Dr.
I just wanted to write this so you all understand a tad more about me….a little bit more about my background, where I’m coming from, and why I am here day!!
I plan on keeping a FULL hair restoration blog on this website to chart my progress throughout my entire journey! Anyhow….sorry for the excessive rant. Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime with any questions, concerns, criticisms….or if you’re just looking to make a brand new friend! I absolutely love meeting new people, and think So it’s great having support while going through procedures/changes just like this. You can all get a better idea of where I’m starting out pre op, I will post a few photos below to show you my hair in it’s current state! Nevertheless, my hair looks awful, as you can see. Besides, rahal……hoping to be that next AMAZING TRANSFORMATION here myself. Rahal, I had all of my consultations online. Because of my location/distance to Dr. I really hope you guys reach out and get to know me as time goes on.

The state public health department recommends homeowners with high levels of arsenic in their well water stop drinking from the tap until they’ve installed remediation systems on their homes.
Homeowners should consult a water service professional to determine which method will work best for their house, Toal said, metal oxide filters or reverse osmosis procedures are typically used to treat arsenic contamination. The question is. What’s a Dermatologist?
They also have expertise in the care of normal skin, the prevention of skin diseases and cancers, and in the management of cosmetic disorders of the skin like hair loss and scars. Practitioners treat pediatric and adult patients with disorders of the skin, mouth, hair and nails as well as heaps of sexually transmitted diseases, A certification by the Board of Dermatology. Water sampled from Penna’s kitchen sink and analyzed by Aqua Environmental contained arsenic in amounts equal to 022 milligrams per liter, more than twice the acceptable health limit. Another raw water test performed a month later by ‘Stratfordbased’ Complete Environmental Testing Inc. It turned out arsenic, in levels more than twice the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended health limit of 01 milligrams per liter, had been flowing from the two women’s taps and they’re not alone. So Connecticut Department of Public Health has received numerous reports in recent years of pesticide and heavy metal contamination in residential drinking water across the state.
Did you know that the state has done little research on the source or location of well water contaminants similar to arsenic, and requires the testing of private drinking water only once when a tally new well is installed.
Wanted to know if the metal was present in her body after years of drinking her well water, penna installed a water filtration system.
She consulted a few doctors and xicologists but had a hard time finding someone who could test her for arsenic poisoning. Actually the state DPH does not require private well owners to test their water for arsenic and identical known toxins, just like pesticides, copper and radon. When it issued a news release recommending all homeowners test their well water nearly any five years for arsenic and uranium, the department didn’t even recommend statewide arsenic testing until last week.
Homeowners won’t know to test their wells for arsenic if public health officials don’t alert them, Penna and Wilson said. Assuaging property value fears and changing the way local and state health officials approach water contamination wouldn’t happen all of a sudden, said Stamford resident Karen DeFalco. State Sen. Ed Meyer, D Guilford, said he would support expanding the list of contaminants that laboratories are required to test for when new wells are installed. Nonetheless, mandating more frequent testing of private drinking water must be an ugher bill to pass. I’m sure that the General Assembly’s Environmental Committee chairman said he is open to exploring the poser. Albeit it must be possible to do a geographic analysis on the basis of geologic mapping, the state has not studied the location or extent of arsenic containing bedrock, Thomas said.
Arsenic was also historically used as a pesticide, mainly in apple orchards.
In accordance with the American Medical Association, a fact sheet published on the state health department’s website said urine and hair arsenic tests are difficult to interpret and, are unreliable.
As indicated by the publication, a good method investigate arsenic exposure is to test drinking water. It’s a well deFalco, president of the North Stamford Concerned Citizens for the Environment nonprofit, was an early advocate for municipal and state intervention in 2009 after the carcinogenic pesticides chlordane and dieldrin were discovered in North Stamford drinking wells. Stamford’s public testing program, that has tested more than 1000 of the city’s estimated 5000 private drinking wells over the last year, has helped local and state officials learn more about pesticide contamination and inspired other testing across Connecticut. She decided to test her well water after other Weston mothers reported similar hair loss. Normally, her ‘oncethick’ hair has since fallen out in clumps she did actually fill a plastic sandwich bag with brownish strands collected from the drain after one shower.
Penna, a mother of three young children whose home was built in the 1960s, moved to Weston eight years ago.
In the meantime, Penna said she plans to test her water quarterly.
Her sister, who lives in Newtown, has already tested her home’s water and discovered her radon levels are 18000 picocuries per liter more than three times the staterecommended limit of 5000 picocuries per liter. There’s a whole list of other contaminants Penna has yet to check her well for. Let me tell you something. Arsenic contamination ain’t confined to Weston’s borders. Stamford’s health department detected arsenic in 24 of 227 well water tests performed since The state DPH has also found the heavy metal in drinking wells across Connecticut, most recently in Pomfret and Somers, said state epidemiologist Brian Toal. Oftentimes state Geologist Margaret Thomas said ‘naturallyoccurring’ arsenic is found in rocks that contain iron sulfites, that are prevalent in New England. Health officials believe arsenic enters private well water from the surrounding bedrock. About 30 the wells percent tested positive for arsenic in levels above the acceptable health limit. Considering the above said. Weston residents rushed to test their own well water after hearing of Penna and Wilson’s findings, and 104 homeowners have reported their results to the ‘WestportWeston’ Health Department, Director Mark Cooper said.
She eventually visited a Westport natural pathologist, who sent a sample of her hair to a Georgia laboratory for analysis. With her hair sample testing positive for 16 micrograms per gram well above the recommended limit of 15 micrograms per gram, the results revealed high arsenic levels. Penna and Wilson live in identical wooded neighborhood of rural Weston, where quite a few the town’s 10000 residents use private well water. I know that the Weston Field Club, about four miles away, recently tested positive for elevated arsenic levels, said General Manager Jeff Champion. Besides, the code requires new wells to be tested for tal coliform, nitrate, nitrite, sodium, chloride, iron, manganese, hardness, turbidity, pH, sulfate, apparent color and odor. Now look, the state requires tests of private drinking water only once when the well is installed and arsenic ain’t on the list of contaminants laboratories are mandated to test for under the state Public Health Code.
