What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia Areata is a common ailment that results in unpredictable hair loss and is an autoimmune disorder. Alopecia areata can be caused by a combination of several factors such as genetic makeup, stress, and environmental factors, where the immune system attacks the hair follicles. This often develops over a time of a few days. For some people, the hair loss could be a few patches and for some, it could be more extreme. Sometimes, it could result in complete hair loss on the scalp and rarely, the entire body. It mostly affects the scalp and beard, however, may affect any part of the body with hair. This disorder can affect anyone irrespective of age and gender.
Signs and Symptoms:
- Hair loss in patches
Why choose Homeopathy?
Although Alopecia Areata is not a serious disease, it affects the self-confidence of the patient and hence makes it more stressful and emotionally challenging to deal with it. Use of powerful anti-inflammatory drugs in the allopathic system can only suppress the condition but do not help to heal the emotional stress of the patient. Due to the holistic approach of homeopathy treatment, the patient is treated for the stress and emotional aspects also along with the hair loss.
