Alopecia areata Treatment
Alopecia Treatment: Despite what you may have been told, there IS hope….
Alopecia Treatment: Guardian featured Harley Street IBS & Autoimmune Clinic has welcomed many beautiful individuals experiencing all forms of hair loss (Alopecia).
Our Alopecia treatment uses a functional medicine approach. A requirement for this dedicated and specialist clinic became abundantly clear following the frustrations alopecia patients spoke of prior to being treated by Guardian featured Deborah Grant.
Patients spoke of the lack of support they had received previously in their hair loss treatment; the hurtful diagnosis they had been given that their hair would never grow back; they spoke of shame, depression, loss of identity as well as social paranoia; and the inconvenience and itchiness of expensive wigs.
Alopecia is usually caused by a problem with the immune system (the body’s natural defence against infection and illness). It’s more common among people with other autoimmune conditions. A prescription tailored to each patient is usually very effective at treating such conditions. We do not use pharmaceuticals. Results can be seen as the body responds to the Alopecia treatment and hair growth is stimulated.
We use diagnostic functional medicine testing to investigate and determine the cause of each individual’s hair loss or Alopecia areata. Our medicine, which is licensed by the UK Government’s Department of Health, is then given to the patient to help bring the body back into equilibrium and to ultimately modulate immune function. Each prescription is prepared and dispensed to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our patients find that this natural and gentle approach works best for Alopecia treatment and clear results can usually be seen through the subsequent hair regrowth. We do not have a one size fits all approach.
In addition, we address the psychological impact Alopecia has on an individual as it is a condition which not only clearly effects the body, but takes a silent toll on the psyche too. Each individual prescription is made to also address symptoms ranging from depression to stress and adrenal exhaustion.
Following our Alopecia treatment, patients speak of regaining their lost sense of identity, of being given hope and encouragement as they witness, over time, the regrowth of their hair.
This holistic approach also usually works well for treating any gut issues or IBS symptoms which are so often associated with alopecia and other autoimmune conditions; hence many of these related symptoms also dissipate or disappear too as the body is brought back into balance.
