Hair loss is a very common lifestyle problem affecting millions of men and women all over the world. According to a recent survey, approximately 25 percent of men and 13 percent of women face hair loss problem in their early years.
Hundreds of medical researchers have now shown that aging, hormonal imbalances, and heredity are the primary factors associated with hair loss and baldness problems. Both males and females tend to lose hair thickness with the growing age, but pattern baldness has been seen more in men than women. Sometimes an unhealthy lifestyle and certain medical conditions can also contribute to rapid hair loss and baldness.
Unfortunately, there are many myths surrounding hair loss and hair treatment techniques. One of the popular myths is that hair loss is an irreversible process, but the good news is that this is always not the case.
Fortunately, there are effective medications and other hair treatment options available for preventing and even re-growing hair in homeopathy. Dietary and lifestyle changes combined with an appropriate hair treatment have also been found to control the symptoms of hair loss and baldness in certain conditions.
It is always good to address your hair loss condition to a homeopath in the initial stage to get effective treatment results. If left untreated for a long time, you may end up losing all your hair from the head which can create quite an embarrassing situation for you, especially during public appearances and interactions.
Homeopathy does not believe in only treating hair loss symptomatically. It tries to treat the ‘root cause’ of the disease individualising every case, based on the patient’s uniqueness in developing their symptoms along with their temperament and personality.
For example, hair loss in a sales manager who is dominating by nature, loves to eat sweets, and has a low appetite as eating even a little makes him feel full, may require a homeopathic medicine for hair loss that suits his temperament and personality, and not just his hair distress in isolation.
Homeopathy advocates that certain impediments to control hair loss should be taken care of along with appropriate dietary and regimen changes. Thus, in typical male pattern baldness natural DHT-inhibiting foods, such as soya are recommended. One is advised to quit smoking and alcohol intake too.
The basic aim in treating hair loss or balding cases with homeopathy is to arrest the progression of hair loss, try and facilitate hair re-growth.
The foremost advantage of homeopathic treatment is that the individual gets treated on the whole, — thereby making homeopathy an effective and holistic form of medical treatment for hair loss for prolonged periods of time.
