Homeopathic Remedies For Alopecia Aerata

Having bald patches on one’s head, beard and eyebrows can be very distressing. Although alopecia areata does not affect the patient health in any other form, it is certainly life-altering and its sudden onset, recurrent episodes, and unpredictable course have a great impact on the psyche of those suffering from it. Homeopathic remedies for alopecia areata provide an excellent treatment for it. They are fairly successful as it quickly helps the hair grow back.

Alopecia areata is the loss of hair in circular or oval patches from the scalp or elsewhere such as eyebrows, beard, etc. The bald patches are usually of the size of a five-rupee coin or one-rupee coin. Complete loss of hair may also occur in some individuals although it is not very common.

Alopecia areata is a fairly common skin disorder and about 1 percent of the population is affected at any given time. Unlike other kinds of hair loss, alopecia areata is a reversible hair loss as the follicles ( a structure that encloses the root of the hair) of hair are not damaged. Alopecia areata does not affect patient health in any other way. Few people complain of itching when hair starts falling. There is no physical discomfort associated with it. Alopecia affects all ages, races, and sexes equally.

Homeopathic treatment is very effective in dealing with alopecia areata. Homeopathic remedies for alopecia areata affect our body by optimizing our immune system. Thus, homeopathy can provide an effective and permanent solution to this problem.

The loss of hair in patches is known as alopecia areata. In alopecia areata, usually hair loss is seen on the scalp, but any body part covered with hair can be affected.

Causes of Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. In this condition, the defense cells of the body – because of a misdirected response – start to destroy hair follicles resulting in bald patches. Heredity and genetics play a significant role in alopecia areata. Patients suffering from alopecia areata very often mention a family member suffering from the same condition.

Signs and Symptoms of Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata shows up as bald patches. The most common areas for alopecia areata are the scalp and the beard, but may involve any body part with hair. There may be one, or multiple bald patches. The patches are usually round in shape and smooth to touch.

  1. T.V.Sowmya says:

    Hi… I am Sowmya, 33 years old from Chennai (Tamilnadu) currently staying in Qatar. I have baldness and heavy hairfall above the forehead. I went to a dermatologist before 2 years and the doc gave allopathy medicines for application of hair only for some time and had injected some medicine. It was a 8 sitting treatment. In the 4th sitting it self I got hair from my baldness. But, the doctor had suggested me not to apply any hair oil as I have an oily scalp and wash my hair regularly.

    So, from then on I am washing my hair with mild shampoo everyday. But now, the baldness have become more and I have heavy hair fall. Currently I don’t have any health issues.

    Kindly, suggest me how we can treat this via homeopathy as I have already taken mendicine in homeopathy during my early 20’s and it has cured me completely.
