Hair Loss (Alopecia)
When hair falls out in patches and hair loss occurs without scarring, the condition is called alopecia areata. Common signs and symptoms include patchy, round, smooth areas of balding on the scalp, but hair loss can occur in any hair-bearing area. It can occur in both sexes and at all ages, but it occurs predominately in children and adults younger than 20 years.
Continuous fever, pregnancy (later stages), acute or prolonged stress, iron deficiency, malnutrition, certain drugs, hormonal imbalances, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies can all contribute to the development of alopecia. Natural health products, acting in a bio regulating way, can help treat the condition. Our physicians are experts in alopecia treatment and also in hair analysis.
