Androgenic Alopecia: Male Pattern Baldness

What is Androgenic Alopecia? (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

It is due to androgenic stimulation of predisposed hair follicles with a reduction in the anagen phase and a decrease in the number of telogen follicles. During subsequent cycles, the size of the follicles gradually decreases, and the final hairs are replaced with vellus hairs. After that, many vellus threads also disappear. The exact mode of conveying normal baldness is unknown. However, it is believed to be transmitted as a prominent autosomal character. Clinical manifestations depend on androgenic hormones, however, there is no difference in levels found in men with alopecia than in those with full hair. The age of onset of alopecia arises in different individuals but it does not start before puberty. Initially, there is a backward recession of the frontal hairline with the widening of the forehead. It may follow the loss of hair from the vertex. With increasing age, hair loss becomes more and more prominent t and in a few people, most of the hair on the scalp is lost except a little hair at the back and side of the scalp...

Treatment (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

There is no effective treatment available at present that can regrow or prevent further loss of hair. It has been seen that some patients stop washing and combing their hair under the erroneous belief that it would minimize hair loss. Nonetheless, it inclines them to dandruff and optional contamination. Hence, the patient should be explained and encouraged to accept the hair loss and should keep his hair clean with regular shampooing.
Anacardium oriental, Baryta Carb, Fluoric acid, Graphites, Phosphorous, Silicea, and Natrum Mur have been used for the treatment of male pattern baldness. All these medicines are given on the basis of the constitution of the patient.
