Alopecia Areata Hair Loss – How To Cure It!
You need to know what alopecia areata hair loss is before you can even contemplate getting a successful cure for it. First of all in case what you’re wondering what alopecia areata it is Latin and the literal translation is ‘bald areas’ it is also a female alopecia that is not so common with men.
It is a condition where there doesn’t seem to be a single cause – it seems to be an underlying condition that occurs when there is a rapid change of factors that tend to be external such as stress from work, hormonal imbalance perhaps caused by menopause and in rarer cases scalp infections.
The actual cause of alopecia areata is to do with the action of the bodies immune cells (white blood cells) which attack the growing cells in the hair follicles that make the hair. The affected hair follicles become shrink and drastically slow down hair growth. The good news is that the stem cells that continually supply the follicle with new cells do not seem to be targeted which means that the follicles always have the potential to re grow new hair.
Alopecia areata often occurs in people who have relatives have other autoimmune diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, or pernicious anaemia. So it can be genetic so to speak which can make it more difficult to cure.
People who have alopecia areata don’t usually exhibit other autoimmune diseases but do have a higher chance of having thyroid disease, Atopic eczema, nasal allergies and asthma.
What sort of alopecia areata treatment is effective then?
There are Conventional Drugs remedies which promote hair growth rather than prevent new bald patches occurring and tend to treat the symptoms so as far as ‘looks’ are concerned the condition can be controlled. The drugs that are used mainly include Corticosteroids, Oral cyclosporine, Minoxidil, Anthralin (Psoriatic) and Sulfasalazine.
Will My Hair Ever Grow Back?
Where treatment occurs there is every chance that hair will grow back. if you are going to go down the route of conventional drug treatment as opposed to a homeopathic hair loss remedy then the likelihood of getting the hair to regrow is quite high. Hair loss in women is never pleasant but fortunately alopecia areata hair loss is not as drastic as alopecia totalis where even you eyebrows and eyelashes fall out and this form is easier to treat in it’s milder state. Again even if you lose all your hair there is still the strong possibility for full re growth.
One of the best treatments is Provillus which has been designed especially for women and contains Minoxidil which is an FDA approved hair regrowth drug and is well worth considering as an alopecia areata treatment.
