So who is this company The Hairy Pill?
The Hairy Pill is just a business name.
The outfit that owns it is called The Hairy Company Pty Ltd.
The private company with 2000 issued shares and three directors, that trio also being the shareholders.
The non-paying bookie Noah Rose owns 7000 of the shares.
He’s the money man.
Rose’s old school mate Jonathon Stiebel owns 7000 shares.
He is a marketing and IT guru, and is the online man.
Professor Rodney Sinclair holds the other 6000 shares.
Sinclair is a Professor of Dermatology at the University of Melbourne, and runs a highly successful private practice named Samson Clinical Pty Ltd.
He is the medicine man.
The company is registered to an accountancy firm’s office in St Kilda, an address that ASIC records show as The Hairy Pill’s principal place of business, which is rather odd isn’t it?
How many accountants run a side show manufacturing and distributing pills?
Not many you wouldn’t think.
So what exactly is this Hairy Pill?
Well that is a good question.
The welcher and his crew won’t tell you.
They say that (and I quote):
In accordance with the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, advertising prescription-only medication directly to consumers is not permitted in Australia. Therefore, unfortunately we are unable to disclose the active pharmaceutical ingredients on our website, which is classified as a medium for advertising.
This is both a half truth, and a big lie.
What the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 actually says is that non-prescription medicines may not be advertised at all.
The Hairy Pill company is quite likely in breach of this law, for it’s whole website is dedicated to exactly that – advertising The Hairy Pill.
The Act also says that a company is absolutely allowed to publish the Consumer Medicines Information (CMI) related to their product.
This CMI details the active ingredients of the drug, in this case The Hairy Pill.
Noah Rose and his partners are telling porkie pies, and the reason they are telling them is because they don’t want you to know what is actually in The Hairy Pill.
Because bookies being bookies, Noah the shark is clipping the ticket and robbing his bald punters blind.
The active ingredient in The Hairy Pill is a blood pressure drug called Minoxidil.
You can buy 2 months supply of the generic version of the drug legally online for $29.95, or about $15.00 a month.
The Hairy Pill company charges you $75 a month for exactly the same thing, minus the non-active diuretics and other bits and pieces that they put in their compounded pills to make them appear different.
Never trust a bookie.
Rose has framed his market at 500%.
He’s good isn’t he?
The other reason they don’t want you to know what’s in the Hairy Pill is that it doesn’t really work, not in any major fashion anyway,
And when it does work it can give you heart disease, blinding headaches, itchy eyes, rashes, and bulbous outbreaks on your skin.
Don’t take my word for it, listen to the world renowned experts from the University of Thailand, doctors and professors who aren’t usually afraid to have a crack.
They say don’t go near the pill with a barge pole.
Oral minoxidil is mostly metabolized via the liver by conjugation with glucuronic acid.
Serious adverse effects including sodium and fluid retention, and cardiovascular effects (eg ischemic heart disease, pericardial effusion, and pulmonary hypertension) have been reported with systemically administered minoxidil.
Sodium and fluid retention causes a rise in body weight and in severe cases, congestive heart failure occurred.
Pericardial effusion caused by minoxidil occurs around 5% of patients with unknown mechanism.
Pulmonary hypertension due to increased pulmonary artery pressure and high cardiac output from minoxidil has also been described.
Other adverse effects include hypertrichosis, occasional pulsating headache, itchy eyes, skin rashes such as bullous eruptions, and polymenorrhea.
In our opinion, the benefits of the oral medication are not sufficient to justify exposure to the risk of potential side effects.
