I hated to wash or comb my Hair…

I am a 40 year old man. 5 years ago I was detected with high blood pressure because of work stress. I was put on beta-blockers and had no noticeable side-effects for 1st 3 years. Since last 2 years I have been losing hair like crazy, I hated to wash or comb my hair. I told my treating doctor about my visible scalp under the hair and he told me that it could be a side-effect of the beta-blocker. He recommended me some vitamin supplementations but I was not satisfied with this. This is when I started doing an online research and found out that homoeopathy was far more effective in treating this type of hairloss and visited a homoeopath. He took my detailed case study and gave me homeopathic medicines with some diet advice. In the first 3 months my hairfall had come under control and I could not see any strands on my pillow. Gradually after 8 months of treatment, I was shown the before and after pictures where my condition showed stabilization and the quality of my hair looked better than before. The dosage of the beta-blockers was halved by my allopath. I have continued taking homoeopathic treatment and am happy.

Male pattern baldness (MPB) or Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) is one of the principal forms of hair loss. It not just depletes the hair but it can also trigger major emotional and psychosocial problems.  There is a decline in hair thickness or density of hair gradually. This is the best time to start appropriate and effective treatment to stall the slide.

Hairloss is primarily a result of excess male hormone (testosterone). Sounds a little technical but put simply, Testosterone + 5 Alpha Reductase (an enzyme) gets converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a major cause of hairloss in men. DHT reduces the growing phase and extends the resting phase of hair.

This results in Male Pattern Baldness. Hereditary factors, hormones, stress, chemical treatments, mismanagement of hair, dandruff, smoking, lack of sleep, certain conventional medicines like, anti-thyroid, beta-blockers, blood thinners, anti-diabetics are known triggering factors for hair loss.

Homoeopathy for Hairloss

Homeopathy is free from any side-effects. Not only do homoeopathic medicines reduce hairloss but they also protect the body from harmful side-effects (such as decreased libido, ejaculation problems) that are common with conventional drugs.

Homoeopathic medicine is given on the basis of the constitution of the person after taking detailed case history. It treats the root cause; hence it could help in treating the underlying cause effectively.

Homoeopathy could be safely taken with conventional medicine.

Homoeopathic remedies such as Thuja Occidentalis or Sabal Serrulata have been used for treating hairloss in homoeopathy since 100 years. International clinical studies have proven that the two homoeopathic remedies cited natural DHT-inhibitor (hormone responsible for causing thinning of hair), i.e. they can control hairloss caused by DHT without side-effects.

Hair lotions available in market to control hair loss are very high in chemicals and can cause a chemical burns on the scalp skin leading to permanent hairloss and scars in the affected areas. Homoeopathy has no such side-effects as the medicines are oral medicines.

Self Help

Include green tea and flaxseeds in your diet plan. They are useful to reduce the effect of DHT; they also help to prevent and control hair loss.

Have more fruits and vegetables in your diet helps to improve the circulation to the scalp which in turn helps to reduce DHT production.

Red meat should be avoided as it is a known DHT activator.

Speak to your homoeopathic doctor for appropriate dosage of the two homoeopathic remedies if they are indicated in your type of hairloss.
