Reverse Receding Hair Line and "Widows Peak"?

I'm 25, and have good healthy hair, except in the last year the hair at my temples has receded a lot, and instead of the straight hairline across my forehead I once had, it now has a V shape. It doesn't work with the hair style I've used for many years.. . I'm trying to look into any possibilities to help reverse this, if even a little. I know stress was a big factor, and I've done great now at working on that psychological factor, as well as a healthy(er) diet. Now I'm looking into what external environmental actions I can take to try to natural stimulate regrowth, and feeling a bit overwhelmed.. I have tried: Stress Reduction, improved diet, (generic) multivitamin, scalp massage tool (looks like a kitchen whisk that was cut halfway down the wire whisk), and a supposed vitamin infused hair tonic oil. I think it was caused by: Primary starter was a huge series of stresses and depression in my life, probably coupled with hitting my late 20's in age. There's no history of balding or hair loss on either side of my family. I also have some minor health problems that may contribute to it as well.

Increase your Silica intake through a multivitamin or collagen powder to add to shakes. You should also try to maintain a healthy testosterone level.
