What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia Areata is one of the common diseases or disorders of the immune system that leads to hair loss. In this auto-immune disease, the hair follicles which are considered the roots from which hair grows are mistakenly attacked by the immune system which is basically designed to protect the human body from bacteria, viruses, and other foreign invaders or agents.

Affects and Symptoms

The extent of the thus occurred hair fall depends on the individual immune system. The severity may vary from a few bare hair patches to extensive loss of hair and in some cases, total loss of hair when uncontrolled. This total loss of hair on head is scientifically termed as Alopecia Areata Totalis. And if the same occurs everywhere on the body i.e. on head, face, and body, it is called as Alopeica Areata Universalis.

How Hair Fall Occurs?

In the case of Alopecia Areata, the immune system, thinking that Hair Follicles are some foreign agents that harm the body, would generate white blood cells that attack the hair follicles. These follicles become small in size due to the attack which subsequently reduces the production of hair thus leading to Hair Loss.

Homeopathic Treatment For Alopecia Areata

The treatment for Alopecia Areata in Homeopathy is centered on the fact that despite the damage to Hair Follicles, the stem cells that supply new cells to the follicles will still be intact as they are not targeted. This means that the hair follicles have not lost their ability as the stem cells are alive and well. Homeopathic Treatment here are aimed to stimulate these stem cells to enhance the supply to Follicles and enable hair growth.

The results and the time by which they can be observed will depend on the individual’s immune system, the health of stem cells, and the state of damaged follicles. Even those who have gone completely bald also can have their hair grown back with effective Homeopathic solutions offered by Positive Homeopathy.
