Hair Loss Treatment – Guardian featured Harley Street Autoimmune Clinic has welcomed many beautiful individuals experiencing all forms of hair loss (Alopecia).

These two pictures are an example of what can be achieved in less than 9 months. This wonderful patient has very kindly

given her permission to place her photos on our website so that others seeking answers to their hair loss or Alopecia can also be helped. She is 32 years old and her Alopecia started when she was 23 years old. Her treatment is of course ongoing until she has her mane of hair back again.

Our Alopecia areata or hair loss 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. Natural Medicine is usually very effective at treating such conditions and results can be seen as the body responds to the hair loss 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. Natural 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 in hair loss 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 paranoia, to stress and adrenal exhaustion.

Following our hair loss 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 to its equilibrium.

If you would like an appointment for Alopecia areata treatment, we would be delighted to help you. Please call for our medical secretary for an appointment.
