Hair loss - Ways To Deal With It!

Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disorder that often results in irregular hair loss. In the majority of cases, hair falls out in small patches around the size of a quarter. For most people, the hair loss is nothing more than a few patches, though in some cases it can be more excessive. Sometimes, it can lead to the complete loss of hair on the scalp (alopecia totalis) or, in extreme cases, the entire body (alopecia universalis). Often Alopecia areata develops suddenly, over the course of just a few days. There is currently no cure for alopecia areata, However, there are some forms of natural treatment options like cupping with ATP therapy or biotherapy suggested by the specialist to help the hair re-grow more quickly. So, if you are suffering from alopecia and are looking for ways to deal with it, here are those ways.

Alopecia Universalis - Causes, Symptoms & Ayurvedic Treatment Of It!

Alopecia Universalis is a kind of condition, which gets characterized by the complete loss of hair on the scalp as well as on the body. It is basically an advanced version of alopecia areata, a condition which causes some round patches of hair loss. It differs from local Alopecia Areata, which leads to the emergence of patches of hair loss and Alopecia Totalis, which results in complete hair loss only on the scalp.

Symptoms of Alopecia Universalis

If any individual starts to lose hair on his/her head as well as other body parts then it is a key sign of AU. The symptoms include loss of:

  • Body Hair
  • Scalp Hair
  • Eyebrows
  • Eyelashes

Hair loss can also be noticed on the pubic area along with the inner portion of the nose. People may not come across other symptoms, though there might be instances when they might have itchiness or a burning sensation in the areas that get affected.

Causes behind Alopecia Universalis

Alopecia Universalis, which is an advanced form of Alopecia Areata, is basically an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease tends to develop when the immune system makes a mistake of considering healthy cells for foreign substances. Usually, the immune system acts as a defence for our bodies against foreign substances like bacteria and viruses. If anyone has Alopecia Universalis, then basically, it is the immune system that attacks the hair follicles by mistake. The follicles tend to become really small and thus stop producing hair, resulting in hair loss.

So the causes behind this condition among people are:

  • Ones having a family history of other diseases that are of autoimmune nature like type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Environmental factors also contribute to the development of this condition.

Treatment of Alopecia Universalis through Ayurveda

Ayurveda is primarily based on the principle that the universe comprises five elements like Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Ether. These elements get represented in human beings by three doshas:

  • Vata Dosha
  • Pitta Dosha
  • Kapha Dosha

When either of these doshas tends to get accumulated in the body beyond the ideal limit, the body loses its balance. Each and every individual has a typical balance and our health and well-being depend upon getting the exact balance of the three doshas. The Ayurvedic Natural treatment for this condition of Alopecia Universalis contains:

  • Natural Oils
  • Natural Powders
  • Natural Paste

The treatment does not involve any kind of oral pills. Products get prepared as per the history provided by the patients and gets prepared under the strict rules and regulations formulated by Ayurveda. The applications are extremely convenient, hence, they can be used at home. Products are applied at night and get washed off in the morning. The products do not contain any kind of artificial fragrance.

Alopecia Universalis Treatment With Ayurveda!

Alopecia Universalis is a condition that causes intense hair loss. This kind is unlike any other form of Alopecia. It causes complete loss of hair from your scalp and baldness. Although this is a type of Alopecia Areata, it differs from the common symptoms of the other alopecias - alopecia areata and alopecia totalis.

Symptoms –
The most common signs of alopecia universalis are the loss of-

  1. Body hair
  2. Eyebrow hair
  3. Eyelashes
  4. Scalp hair
  5. Pubic hair


In case of alopecia, the immune system of the body attacks the hair follicles believing it to be an intruder. The hair follicles are attacked as a defense mechanism, which causes hair loss.

Many doctors believe it to have genetic links, however there are certain other factors that stimulate this condition.

  1. Environmental triggers
  2. A long term illness
  3. Medicines
  4. Nutritional deficiency
  5. Thyroid disorder
  6. High levels of stress
  7. Vaccinations
  8. Skin diseases
  9. Exposure to chemicals

Risk factors-

People with Alopecia Universalis have an increased risk of developing other diseases such as vitiligo and thyroid disorder.

Ayurvedic Treatment-

Ayurveda believes in the philosophy that people who suffer from diseases have an imbalance of basic life energies in the body. Once the patient starts to receive treatment, the energy produced in the body from the restoration of organic processes to their original state helps in fighting the diseases effectively. Ayurveda terms consistent hair loss as ‘khalitya’ that is further categorized under ‘Shiroroga’.

Romakupagata/Keshamulagata pitta or bhrajaka pitta along with vata imbalance dislodges the hair from its roots. Sleshma/Kapha obstructs the hair roots which in turn does not allow any new hair to grow again.

Treatment Methods-

  1. Pitta Pacification- An effective ayurvedic treatment, it improves the digestive fire by following a pitta pacification diet chart and through pitta decreasing medications. This therapy is highly beneficial since it completely eliminates bodily toxins by means of natural herbs.
  2. Applying ayurvedic oil- Medicated herbal oils induced with Jasminum grandifolium can treat baldness
  3. Panchakarma therapy- Ayurveda focuses on two major treatment methods, ‘shodhana’ and ‘shamana’. Shodhana is the purification of the body and shamana refers to treatment with medicines. Panchkarma is an important form of shodhana. This is a five(pancha) remedy/therapy(karma) which applies ayurvedic procedures to clean or purge the entire body.
    • Shirodhara is performed by gently pouring a continuous stream of medicated, warm herbal oil on the forehead. A typical massage session extends for half an hour. Sometimes the oil is also replaced with herbal liquids, which rejuvenates the follicles of the dry hair.
    • Nasya involves application of oils and medications through the nostrils which is supposed to have immediate effects on the hair and scalp. Ayurvedic medicated oil is poured through one nostrils and the toxins can be spitted out through mouth. This way it helps the body get rid of impurities.
  4. Ayurvedic hot oil massages- This is done on the scalp, which can effectively arrest hair loss and prompt hair regrowth. Extract from teak wood, Bhringaraj and Jatamansi are commonly used Ayurvedic herbs applied to treat hair and scalp disorders.
  5. Diet- Since ayurveda believes our hair to be a by-product of the bone tissue formation, it is essential to consume food rich in calcium, iron for healthy bones and healthy body. Along with this, one should also consume foods and liquids that purify the liver and blood.

You may be having alopecia areata. This is an autoimmune condition due to the attack of lymphocytes​ against hair roots. It results in the formation of bald patches on the scalp. It can affect any hairy area of the body also like eyebrows and beard. It has to be treated properly for long duration until the immunity comes down. Once the immunity is controlled, hair grows back over the patches. Please call me or contact me with photos or visit me at my clinic for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

There is no standard treatment for alopecia universalis. Many treatments have been explored, including immunomodulatory agents such as imiquimod. Tofacitinib citrate may also have benefits.
