‘Aapko naya Saal mubarak ho,’I heard a RJ saying on a leading radio station and really had a good laugh over it. At the outset, I thought it was just a slip of tongue, and he actually wanted to say - ‘aapko naya saal mubarak ho’. However, it wasn’t a mistake. In fact, they were running a contest on radio on the occasion of New Year and had invited people to tell them stories on how hair loss has affected their life and why they need hair desperately. The story that really sounds interesting wins the contest and the contender gets a free hair loss treatment. Innovative…I thought with a smile.
However, after listening few of the callers who called to narrate their experiences with baldness, I realized that hair loss can actually lead to a visible, or noticeable, loss of confidence. One begins to feel unattractive and becomes self-conscious. These people take desperate measures to control hair fall and succumb to several crazy hair fall remedies. However, unfortunately, many of them get depressed when such treatments and over the counter shampoos and hair oils do not really help them get their hair back. That’s exactly the reason why I decided to write this article.
Are you one of those who have tried all the hair fall treatments with no results? Try homeopathy now. Homeopathic treatment for hair loss has shown effective results in patients. An independent study conducted by A C Nielsen across five cities in India revealed that 90 per cent of patients taking homeopathy at one of the largest chains of homeopathic clinics in the world would not switch over to any other brand or treatment. This speaks for the credibility of homeopathic science.
Homeopathy is, by far, the safest and most humane form of medical sciences. It aims to treat the whole person rather than just the physical, or apparent, symptoms. Why is homeopathy treatment ideal for hair loss and other hair/ scalp problems? Here are the few reasons where homeopathy scores over the conventional medicines in treating hair loss.
Homeopathy treatment for hair loss is free from side-effects. Not only do homeopathic medicines reduce hair loss, but they also protect the body from harmful effects (such as decreased libido, ejaculation problems in men) that are common with conventional drugs.
The medicines used in homeopathic treatment for hair loss such as Thuja Occidentalis or Sabal serrulata have been used for treating hair loss for over 100 years. International clinical studies have proven that the two homeopathic medicines cited are natural DHT-inhibitors, i.e., they can control hair loss caused by DHT — without side-effects.
Importantly, homeopathy treatment for hair loss does not target only the physical complaints, but also targets the mind and gently restores mind body equilibrium —homeopathy treats patients as a ‘whole.’ This makes it an excellent solution for hair problems related to the mind, such as stress-related patchy hair loss (alopecia areata), hair-pulling disorder (trichotillomania), or stress-induced massive hair shedding.
Moreover, homeopathy has proven results with various scientific studies supporting its efficacy. A study conducted in Scotland revealed that 90 per cent of patients with patchy hair loss opted for homeopathic treatment as the first choice of treatment. Homeopathic treatment for hair loss actually helps to slow down the progression of the bald patches and fill them up with new hair. A complete recovery is possible in most cases.
Also, it has been found that the recurrence rate of patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) was just 9.1 per cent in patients treated with homeopathy, whereas it was as high as 50 per cent in patients who took conventional treatment for the disorder.
Homeopathic treatment is different from conventional treatment, where individuals are diagnosed on the basis of just the illness or disease — and, the same medicine is given for each condition. Homeopathy prescribes a different remedy for a given illness, depending on a multitude of factors, such as the personality of the individual, their state of mind and lifestyle. In other words, the illness may be the same by name, but the presentation of the illness in no two individuals is the same — so, they are given two different homeopathic remedies that suit their distinctive personality, or individuality.
