A 33-years-old male, Mr. B.C.I. (PIN 22796) visited Life Force on 17th May 2014 for the treatment of alopecia areata.
He presented with the complaints of alopecia areata which he was suffering since one month. There was one alopecia patch on the right side of his mustache since one month. He noticed another alopecia patch on his right temporal region of the scalp since one week. There was no itching on the scalp. He also suffered from premature graying of hair. Premature graying of hair was a hereditary complaint in his family. He had not started any treatment for his alopecia areata. Since his alopecia had started spreading to new spots, he was worried and started looking for treatment options. He was then introduced to Life Force by his friend, who was aware of the excellent scope of homeopathy in cases of alopecia areata.
His detailed case history and photos were taken.
He was a non-vegetarian by diet. He had a strong liking for meat, fish, and chicken. He used to experience generalized profuse perspiration. He would even perspire on his palms and soles. He would not have any specific climate tolerance. His bowels were unsatisfactory.
He was working with a bank under ATM monitoring department. His wife was a homemaker. His father was retired, and his brother was also working with a bank.
He was short-tempered and reserved by nature. He would react quickly, if someone would say anything negative about him, and would stop talking to him. He was stressed regarding his job. He was looking for a new job, as his company wanted to transfer him to Hyderabad. He was living in a small house, and so he was a little stressed to buy a new house.
He did not suffer from any major illness in the past. His mother suffered from hypertension.
His case was studied by Dr. Shah in detail, and he prescribed him Natrum Muriaticum 200 along with research-based medicine for alopecia areata. He was advised to check his thyroid profile.
He visited Life Force for his first follow-up on 14th July 2014. There were no new alopecia spots. His spot on the right temple had reduced in size, and his spot on mustache had also shown a considerable improvement. His thyroid profile report turned out to be normal. He was given medicines for another six weeks.
He then visited Life Force on 5th September 2014. His alopecia patch on right temple had completely recovered. Complete hair re-growth was achieved in that patch. His patch on the mustache had also shown a significant improvement. He was happy with the outcome of the treatment. His fresh photos were taken. He is still under our treatment for complete recovery. No new patches were reported.
This case demonstrates that timely administration of homeopathic medicines helps immensely in treating auto-immune diseases like alopecia areata.
