The cause of your hairfall is a must to know... If you are saying 2/3rd of hair is gone please also see for appropriate measures.
Yes Homoeopathy has good scope in treatment of hairfall but it is given on individual basis. Medicine is for you and not for hair only.
If the medicine prescribed for you is such which is antidoted by things like raw onion and citric food then you are advised to avoid them.
That is why you must have been advised the same because the action of the medicine should not be antidoted so that impact and result can be seen.
Here is a detail description of hair fall and its cause and the scope of homeopathy. Why I gave this lengthy answer because you must know what can be done by the treatment in hair fall as you have lost faith on treatment
A single hair consists of a hair shaft, a root below the skin, and a follicle, from which the hair root grows. Most people lose about 50 to 100 head hairs a day. These hairs are replaced â they grow back in the same follicle on your head. This amount of hair loss is totally normal and no cause for worry. If you're losing more than that, though, something might be wrong.
These are some of the more common reason for hair loss are:
Stress: mental stress can cause temporary hair loss. It is because of high amount of stress hormone that causes hair loss. Hair fall due to hormonal disorder or stress related condition have a promising cure in homeopathic treatment. It is because homeopathy treatment maintains the bodyâs normal hormonal level as well as stress hormone too.
Drugs:Many drugs like Anti cancer drugs, Epilepsy drugs, anti-acne drugs, Lipid-lowering drugs (clofibrate, bezafibrate), ACE inhibitors for blood pressure, Drugs for treating gout , Anti malarials (chloroquine) causes hair loss. That can be well controlled by homeopathic treatment and tampering or stooping those drug if can be possible.
Skin disorders: Some disorders of the skin, for example psoriasis, tinea infection, lichen planus on scalp may cause hair loss. This type of hair loss have very good cure rate by homeopathy treatment both internal and external medicines.
Aging: Hair loss increases likelihood increases with age. By 35, 40% of men have noticeable hair loss, while by 60 65% do. Also elderly hair tends to be more thin and fine giving more of an appearance of hair loss. This is normal aging process no medicinal treatment can help except hair transplant
Hormonal: Since hormones both stimulate hair growth and cause hair loss, hormonal changes by far have the biggest impact on hair loss. These can affect both men and women. Men generally have hair loss concentrated in a specific pattern from the front through to the crown. Women tend to have thinning throughout their head without being in any specific pattern. This type of hair loss is caused by the androgen DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone. Since everyone has DHT that is produced by their bodies and only some people suffer from hair loss there has to be another factor involved. This other factor is having follicles that have a greater number of Androgen receptors for the DHT to attach to. This is the component that is inherited through the genes. in this types of hair loss the cure rate is minimal by any treatment
Deficiency in Diet: If iron in the body is low then this may cause hair loss also, this is generally more a problem with women. Some people who go on low protein diets, or have severely abnormal eating habits, may develop protein malnutrition. To help save protein the body shifts growing hair into the resting phase. If this happens massive amounts of hair shedding can occur two to three months later. A sign of this is if the hair can be pulled out by the roots fairly easily. Here the scope of homeopathy treatment is very good. Side by side it is advised to take a healthy food habits rich with iron, biotin, zinc.
Thyroid problems: Both an overactive thyroid and an underactive thyroid can cause hair loss. This can be well controlled by homeopathy treatment. The treatment target the hypothyroid problem so it helps to cure both the problem.
Birth control pills: Women who have a genetic predisposition to suffer from Androgenic Alopecia can have it occur at a much younger age by taking birth control pills. The hormonal changes that occur trigger the onset of the Androgenic Alopecia. In this case it is advised to stop taking pills and to adopt other contraceptive method and side side by side homeopathic treatment.
Hair fall due to hormonal disorder or stress related condition have a promising cure rate by homeopathic treatment. It is because our treatment maintains the bodyâs normal hormonal level as well as stress hormone too.
The thinning of hair related to protein deficiencies or some micronutrient deficiencies either by inadequate supply or improper absorption of nutrients that causes the thinning of hair shaft and breakage. Homeopathic treatment cures the root cause of health condition and thus helps in preventing the hair loss problem.
Hair fall associated with dandruff and any tinea infection has a very high success of cure rate with homeopathic treatment which not only cures the hair loss problem but also cure the associated health problems as well. Because homeopathy treats the patient as a whole.
Hair fall due to different drugâs side effects like after chemo therapy, oral contraceptive, ace inhibitor, beta blocker, antithyroid drugs, anti seizure drugs, anti coagulant drugs responds well to homeopathy treatment along with a healthy nutrition plan.
The Hair shaft abnormalities like thin and broken hair results from node-like swellings on the hair shaft called trichorrhexis nodosa where the shaft readily fractures from that point is very well curable by homeopathic treatment which helps to regain back the hair texture by treating the cause of hair fragility and has a high percentage of cure rate.
Hair loss related to follicular lichen plannus also known as lichen planopilaris, results in tiny red spiny papules around a cluster of hairs have a very good cure percentage by homeopathic treatment .
Androgenic alopecia or male/female pattern of alopecia is a hereditary disorder. In this type of baldness any type of treatment including homeopathy treatment will not be so much helpful. the cure percentage is minimal
In congenital hair loss the homeopathy treatment will not give expected result. The cure percentage is minimal.
So this is the overall scope of homeopathy treatment alongwith other healthy management for hair fall. Always consult a qualified and experienced homeopathy doctor, because in homeopathy there is no specific medicines for any specific disease. So the medicinal diagnosis for any disease is very important and that will take you the recover phase.
Hope this answer will help you to clear your doubt.
Hi there...I can understand your concern. There's absolutely no study showing food affecting hairfall. You can have any food you want. Also remember that hair cycles have a long duration. So treatment for hair loss is long and continous. It will take at least 4 to 5 months to see improvement. And hairfall is less, till when you use the treatment. If you stop the treatment abruptly, then hairfall can start again. You can tell your concerns to any dermatologist. I am.sure they will be able to help you. There are many treatment options available, depending on severity of hair loss.
