Alopecia areata is one of the most common forms of patchy hair loss. It manifests as small, bald patches on the scalp. They may appear suddenly or in a relatively short span of time. Patchy hair loss is not life threatening but it can cause significant damage to one’s self-image.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition, in which White Blood Cells (WBC) attach and destroy our hair follicles. This causes the hair to rapidly fall out resulting in the formation of bald patches. It is non-contagious and does not spread because of using common combs, hair brush or contact with a person suffering from it. It affects both sexes and all ages.
The good news is that it can be treated effectively by taking holistic treatment in homeopathy.
If homeopathy is considered as a treatment option in the early stages of the disease, then the overall control of the disease in the future is much better. The duration of the treatment in homeopathy will depend on the cause as well as the severity of the condition. Large and multiple patches obviously take a long time to be treated as compared to smaller and fewer patches.
Homeopathic medicines help to deal with stress effectively. Homeopathy helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing capacity and restores the deviated immunity.
Most importantly, homeopathy does not treat alopecia areata on the surface, or from the outside, alone. It aims to treat the ‘root cause’ of the problem, taking into account the person’s unique nature, their individual symptoms, and characteristics, temperament, personality etc.
Homeopathic medicines for hair loss also promote re-growth of hair, and control the progress and spread of bald spots to other regions. Homeopathic treatment for hair loss is an effective solution for hair problems related to the mind, such as stress-related patchy hair loss as well as the later stages like total hair loss.
A study conducted in Scotland revealed that 90% of patients with patchy hair loss opted for homeopathic treatment for hair loss as their first choice of treatment. Not only do homeopathic remedies reduce hair loss, they also protect the body from harmful effects, which are common with conventional drugs used for hair loss.
So, if you or someone you know is suffering from alopecia problem, you can try taking natural homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy can effectively treat hair loss problem and also address the associated emotional turbulence it causes in patients.
