General Hairloss
What is hair loss?
There are many types of scalp hair loss, differ in men and women. Studies show that losing up to 100-150 hairs per day is normal. Human hair naturally grows in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen is the active or growing phase. Catagen is resting phase and Telogen is falling phase, once the hairs come into the falling phase, hair falls off. Normall about 10-20% of the whole of the scalp hairs stays at the resting phase and these hairs falls off.

Conditions of abnormal Hairloss :-
1. Generalised or Diffuse hairloss or Telogen Effluvium : Hairloss is a normal phenomenon and in some cases even losing 100 hairloss per day is normal. But in Telogen Effluvium there will be excessive amount of hairloss without sort of pattern balding over the scalp. This phenomenon happen normally after childbirth, after suffering from prolong fever like typhoid, malaria, chikungunya, dengue or with some history of prolong bed-rest. In this kind of condition more and more scalp hairs are coming into Telogen phase(normal 10-20% of scalp hairs) causing more and more of hairloss. This condition is mostly self-limiting and sometimes needs a prompt and effective treatment. Some perceptible causes for this kind of hairloss are severe stress, nutritional changes (crash dieting), chemical (dye or haircolor, after straightening, perming of hairs), hormonal changes like pregnancy, puberty, and menopause, and some disease conditions like PCOS, thyroid diseases, iron deficiency anemia are also responsible.
2. Traction Alopecia : This is a small or localized hair loss area caused by repetitive or persistent pulling or force on hair roots. Tight braids and ponytails can pull hard enough on hairs to make them fall out.
3. Trichotillomania :-This condition is habit of voluntarily pulling at own hairs or twisting them without realizing it. Most of the time, this condition is associated with period of depression or anxiety. It causes some broken off hairs over some particular patches of the scalp.
4. Tinea Capitis :This condition is fungal infection over the scalp shows bald spots with broken-off hairs. Due to fungal infection over a particular area of the scalp the hairs are broken from the shaft.
5. Androgenic or Androgenetic alopecia (Male-pattern or Female-pattern Baldness) : This type of alopecia is often attributed to genetic predisposition and family history. Traditionally, this was originally described only in men, but we now know it is seen in both men and women. The hair loss in men is often faster, earlier onset, and more extensive.

Complications if un-treated or mal-treated :-
Androgenetic Alopecia or Male or Female pattern baldness is irreversible kind of hairloss. Hairs does not come from the bald areas of the scalp. It is a progressive kind of hairloss and if proper treatment is not taken at the proper time then total baldness might happen in a very short period of time.

General or diffuse hairloss or Telogen effluvium is based upon the cause of the ailment. Once the cause is treated effectively by proper medication, the condition will get rectified. Otherwise Telogen Effluvium also take the shape of permanent baldness if persists for long time un-resolved.

Lifestyle change is needed for traction alopecia. Change in the basic cause for Traction is not there condition can be resolved.

The basic cause for Trichotillomania is depression or anxiety. The condition can recover once the root cause of resolved effectively. As the condition is entirely psychogenic, prompt and effective treatment is requrired.

Tinea Capitis is generally acute fungal disease of the scalp. But in untreated for long time or mal-treated by some topical steriodal or anti-fungal application, which the particular patient is hyper-sensitive, might develop permanent damage of the hairfollicles causing Scarring or Cicatrical Alopecia Areata.

Present-day conventional treatment for Hairloss :
Present-day conventional treatment for hairloss is very limited and having some potent side-effects.
Minoxidil- It artificially stops the hairloss, by controlling the falling phase of hairs (telogen) for the time being. But after few days once one stops using it hairloss starts in a more rapid manner. It is not indicated for the hypertensive patients.

Finasteride- For female it is not indicated during the reproductive age group wants children and for male it can cause impotency.

Yoga would create a proper hemoestesis between mind, body and spirit & make a total synchonization of the glands and hormones resultant of prompt recovery from the disease, which Dr. Pancholi's Team of Expert Homoeopathic Doctors can guide.

Diet : A good daily multivitamin containing zinc, vitamin B, folate, iron, and calcium is a very reasonable choice. Newer studies suggest that vitamin D may be somewhat helpful and worth considering. Specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies like iron or vitamin B12 may be diagnosed by blood tests and treated.

Multiple vitamins including biotin have been promoted for hair growth. While taking biotin and other supplements marketed for hair, skin, and nails probably won't worsen anything, it may also not necessarily help the situation. Therefore, advertised hair-regrowth supplements should be approached with mild caution.

Dietary Guideline is must for different conditions of hairloss, which can improve the mineral, protein, and vitamin defficiency that Dr. Pancholi's Team of Expert Homoeopathic Doctors can guide.
Alopecia Areata
What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia areata is a hair-loss condition which usually affects the scalp. It can sometimes affect other areas of the body. Current evidence suggests that alopecia areata is caused by an abnormality in the immune system. This particular abnormality leads to autoimmunity. Biopsies of affected skin show immune cells inside of the hair follicles where they are not normally present. Alopecia areata is sometimes associated with other autoimmune conditions such as allergic disorders, thyroid disease, vitiligo, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcerative colitis. Sometimes, alopecia areata occurs within family members, suggesting a role of genes and heredity.

What happens if un-treated or mal-treated?
Alopecia areata is most of the time self-limiting. If the alopecia areata spot is increasing in size or the number that means the disease is in aggravating mode and if prompt treatment is not given then alopecia areata can take a shape of Alopecia Totalis, where almost entire scalp hair is lost. The might take the shape of Alopecia Universalis; where almost whole of the body's hair is lost. These cases are very difficult to cure.

The conventional treatment is very limited for the treatment of Alopecia areata, as it is a auto-immune disorder. Continuous intake of the conventional medication which includes immune-suppressor drugs and systemic or topical steroid might cause short or long-term side effects.

It has been seen that topical or injectable steroids might cause Scarring or Cicatrical Alopecia areata, where the hairfollicles are permanently damaged not having any chance of hair-regrowth.

It is a very common form of skin eczema that occurs in parts of the body with high oil (sebum) production. Body areas that are commonly affected include the scalp, ears, face, chest, and folds of skin, such as the underarms or the skin below breasts or overhanging abdominal folds.
One common manifestation of seborrhea that affects the scalp is dandruff. Scalp seborrhea can also present as thick, flaky, localized patches of scale. Often, scalp seborrhea doesn't even itch significantly.
