Does Ayurveda works for hair loss - a discussion:

 

Patchy hair fall and Alopecia hair loss in Ayurveda can be correlated to Indralupta. Romakupagata vitiated pitta (bhrajaka pitta) along with vitiated vata leads to dislodgement or withering of hair from the roots. Further to this, vitiated sleshma/kapha along with rakta will cover and cause obstruction to flow of nutrients to the hair root, which prevents the growth of hair on that place

Stress, worry, anxiety, and inadequate nutrition leads to hair loss. A certain amount of hair loss is considered normal, as old strands are replaced by new. When hair loss is excessive, care must be taken. According to Ayurveda, hair is a byproduct of

bone formation and the tissue responsible for building bones is also responsible for the growth of hair. Early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution (doshas). People who have excess Pitta in their body are likely to lose their hair early in life. Excess Pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, can lead to hair loss.

According to the condition of disease and patient, Doctor planned personalized combinations to provide symptomatic and root-level relief and cure for Alopecia Areata in Ayurveda.
