The most distressing condition which many people are facing is the loss of hair also termed as alopecia, hair loss can occur either totally or in patches. Alopecia is mainly 3 types-alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, and alopecia universalis. Alopecia involves not only scalp but also the beard and eyebrows. Sometimes the hair loss becomes so intense that it results in scarring. Initially, hair loss first begins in circular patches then it occurs diffusely. The cause for hair fall is multifactorial which may be either due to an external or internal cause. Stress has a direct impact on alopecia.
Alopecia may also result due to adverse reactions of various medications. Lack of protein in the diet, suffering from anemia, long term illness and hormonal imbalances are also the contributing factors for the condition.
Along with appropriate diet, Homeopathy aims at treating the causative factors which ultimately results in healthy hair follicle and hair. As stress is the major factor for hair fall Homeopathy takes into consideration the psychological aspect of the patient along with the totality of symptoms and regulates the massive hair loss.
