On 6th May 2014 she gave follow up. Her hair fall was considerably better. The number of hair fall had decreased by seventy percent. She lost only fifty to sixty strands of hair now. Dr Shah repeated the prescription.
In next three months, she reported on 2nd August 2014, there was drastic improvement in hair fall. It reduced to ten to twenty strands of hair per day. She was astonished at the improvement. She was given Phosphorus 30c , Flouric Acid 30c along with his research based medicines.

On 7th April 2015, five months later, she gave her follow up saying that the improvement till now is stable. Hair thickness is good and hair fall is also better. She requested medicines for new hair growth and increase in hair density. Dr Shah prescribed some additional medicines to the existing ones. She was given Tuberculinum 1M, single dose; Staphysagria 200c, 2 doses; Flouric Acid 30c and Phosphorus 200c.
In the next follow up that was after four months on 18th August 2015, hair fall continued to be in improved state. The hair density has also improved. Dr Shah continued with the same medicines this time till the next follow up.
The above case- study shows that homeopathy is a superior option over allopathy for treating hair fall for the simple reason that it does not cause any side effects. And also the good effects last long.
