I am a 55 year old lady. Just recently my hair started thinning rapidly. I was in a state of panic as I could see my scalp skin. I already suffered from high blood pressure and was taking conventional medicine for it. This time it proved to be a low thyroid. I don’t know if my hair will ever again be thick but I was losing excessive amounts of hair. I visit my MD doctor and my Homoeopathic doctor regularly. I believe in taking natural medicines more than conventional medicines so for my hair I consulted my homoeopath. I was prescribed homoeopathic medicines after a detailed discussion and was asked to keep a check on my thyroid hormones. Timely intervention with homoeopathic medicines for my hairloss and thyroid problem stabilized my condition and put a break on my thinning hair. Hypothyroid and Hair Loss Hypothyroidism makes hair dry, brittle, coarse and sparse. Hair thinning is accelerated with an underactive thyroid. Sometimes apart from diffuse hair loss all over the scalp, hypothyroid can also trigger patchy hair loss- alopecia areata. Smooth bald patches may spontaneously appear over the scalp in this condition. Your trichologist will order a simple blood test, when you present with symptoms that indicate thyroid disease to confirm the diagnosis. When the cause of hair loss due to thyroid disorder is established, the next step is to treat the hormonal imbalance. Once this is done, hairloss automatically comes under control. Homoeopathy Homoeopathy helps to produce thyroid hormone naturally by stimulating the immune system and helps in better functioning of the thyroid gland. Homoeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body’s own healing capacity by encouraging the body to reactivate hormone secretions. Homeopathy is free from any side-effects. Not only do homoeopathic medicines reduce hairloss but they also protect the body from harmful side-effects that are common with conventional drugs. Stress causes hormonal disturbances in the body like thyroid problems which are known to cause hairloss and is very effectively treated with homeopathy. Homoeopathy is a mind-body medicine. Homoeopathy treats not only the physical complaints, but also targets the mind and gently restores mind-body equilibrium- thus it treats the patient as a whole. This makes homoeopathy an excellent solution for hair problems related to the mind such as stress induced massive hair shedding. Self Help Good intake of fruits and vegetables will help maintain the calcium and protein levels in the body. Drink adequate water. Regular checkups are a must and report the changes, if any, to your doctor. Caffeinated drinks and dairy products should be avoided. Beat stress. Get adequate sleep, exercise regularly and use relaxation techniques, such as meditation and deep breathing. They can help ease your hair loss and other menopause related symptoms, such as anxiety. Any nutritional supplement should be taken under the guidance of your doctor.
