Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

    Hair loss   

Alopecia is baldness or loss of hair. The most common form is male-pattern baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia), but both men and women can suffer from hair loss. Alopecia areata is another type of hair loss, involving patches of baldness that may come and go. It affects about 1 in 100 people, mostly teenagers and young adults. In some cases, hair loss is a side effect of having cancer treatment drugs, and in many cases, the hair grows back. Hair loss may lead to problems with self-confidence and self-esteem.

Traditional Chinese medicine has a long history of treating hair loss and can often be very helpful both for stopping further hair loss and for supporting regrowth. In Chinese medicine, healthy hair relies on a good flow of chi and blood to nourish the scalp. This flow can be interrupted by either a deficiency of chi and blood or a stagnation of chi and blood, even toxic heat accumulation that can lead to insufficient nourishment reaching the scalp, especially cells of the hair follicles. Poor blood circulation and chi deficiency are often caused by either poor diet or poor assimilation of nutrients, whereas chi and blood stagnation are often caused by stress or a hormone imbalance. Furthermore, toxic heat accumulation can be caused by improper diet (processed and fatty foods, sweets, etc.), as well as alcohol, tobacco, infections, environmental pollution or medications. No matter what is the root cause among the three primary causes of hair loss, acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can improve the flow of chi and blood in the scalp by tonifying deficiency, unblocking stagnations or clearing toxic heat accumulation to help hair regrow.
