My Hair Loss

I have been reading on some of the information that this forum has to offer. I have read one that is similiar to my situation. I am 38 and have been thinning hair since 19 years old. I was always back then diagnosed with a seborea, or psoriosis, but always felt that it was not correct. Although I have hair loss in my family, they lost hair later in life. I have these hard scales not like dandruff, but stuck to scalp, and itchy, and sometimes it gets bad and I have hair loss during these times. The medications such as shampoos help with the itching, but the scales and the oily scalp I am convinced it is something else. As I have read that nat mur can be taken to cure my problem. However, I don't know how to take it, and if I need something else to go with it. My diet is overall good, I could eat more vegatables and maybe a multi vitamin, but I eat good, not out of shape and when all of this started I was in superior shape and diet. What can you recommend. Thank you..

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
A homeo remedy is suggested on the basis of totality of symptoms and it works as a stimulation to vital force. Cure is effected if the remedy is able to stimulate vital force.
If you are ready to provide all your details a remedy that covers all your symptoms may be worked out for you. For doing that you should copy both the questionnaires from the following thread and paste all questions here duly answered. Please note that the effectiveness of remedy selection depends on the quality of details you provide. Please note that mental symptoms are very significant for arriving at a remedy. Please don't think that they are not relevant as your problems are physical.

Dear kadwa,
Thank you for responding to my post. I have dealt with this for 19 years or longer and I am 39 so I have had many changes in diet and stress at different times, but I will answer as best I can for you. Thank you again.
Rishimba has designed another questionnaire that aids in psycho analysis. i am creating a separate thread so that i can provide a link here whenever required. Once again i say thanks to Rishi.

1. Describe your main sufferings and other related or unrelated sufferings in your own words with exact sensations, locations, modalities and probable causes. I have had dandruff and diagnosed with seborrea, psoriasis, no definate prognosis from doctors, and have always used a shampoo to calm it down. At times of loss it sometimes fealt like something crawlin in rear area of my head and itch. Now that it has progressed over the 19+ years I notice that I still get these scale like white stuck to my skin on scalp and ear areas, and oily on top(greasy) I used to itch and just the stress of losing my hair back then, but now don't really worry as much if at all, but do feel that it is something that can be corrected.

2. Write an essay on yourself as a person. Describe your nature, likes and dislikes, fears and dreams, your ambition in life, your inner-most desires, your place in society etc. I am a very nice person who is not mean or nasty to people. I treat people as I want to be treated. I am giving, hard working, and caring. I desire to enjoy life more, and to change careers as now I am looking. I am a middle class society person and feel comfortable with that or below, I say that because I do not care for snobby rich people who go through life thinking that they are better than others, even when they did not earn what they have.

3. What is your profession? I was in sales in the auto industry and prior to that I was a meatcutter for many years.
Do you enjoy yourself at work?I do, but lately with the economy it is bad, but I have enjoyed it for years and had some fun.
Is it a profession you have willingly chosen?Not really I fell into it, because I wanted to learn sales and fealt that it was a good way to obtain those skills, but I became good at it.
If not, what would it be as per your choice? I would like to gotten into the food sales, large distribution food sales is what I wanted, or something rewarding.

4. What would you like to change in your personality, if at all? I would like to be more reserved at times, I sometimes say too much, when I was usually a quieter person. I also want to be at a point in my life to enjoy things better, like vacations, family. Being in sales it was sometimes hard to enjoy, because if your not at work your not making money.

5. Please pick out the adjectives which best describe your personality;competitive, reserved, aggressive, semi active, go getter, lazy, procrastinator, attentive, late. Sometimes go from one to the other.

Nervous, Anxious, Shy, Worrying, Paranoid, Proud,sometimes Depressed, Untidy, Emotional, Impractical, Confused, Suspicious, Timid, Aggressive, Headstrong, Forgetful, Follower, Insecure, Impulsive, Rigid, Restless.

Anything else you would like to add?

6. Did you have any bereavement in life? If yes, how has it affected you? Recently I lost my job and I hated it anyway, but I feel it has taken some dignity and the economy has hurt my industry, but that is just the last 9 months, and I have had this for 19 years.

7. Do you often suffer from depression? sometimes If so, do you prefer company or solitude during those times? Not needing one or the other, sometimes I have my family there or sometimes I am alone, but don't need to be consolled.

8. Do you get angry often? Not really, just sometimes opinionated, and have lack of patience with incompetentcy.
If not, do you feel the anger inside at least?sometimes, but not really. What are the things / issues on which you get angry the most? doctor's don't listen to your symtoms with my condition and sometimes think about someone who has betrayed me at work their character bothers me but not to the degree of being upset or angry, just think about them and why don't they want to be better.

9. Did you have any issues regarding your parenting by your guardians?no

i have copied another piece of information here from question thread. My suggestion is given at the bottom.

Dear kadwa,
Here is the rest of the questions. Thank you again.
although nothing can be better than an interactive conversation across the table, this is an attempt to get to the core of the personality.

wherever the modalities are important, i would use the following questionnaire.

Case Taking Sheet Part 1

GENERAL SYMPTOMS (Related to you in person)

Age: Sex:M Built:Average/athletic Occupation: sales/unemployed

1. Do you have any strange, rare, peculiar, unusual or personal symptom, feeling or a recurring thought?No
2. Write down all your marked mental symptoms taking the guidelines as suggested below:

Fancies sex with attractive women.
- Dominant emotions in your temperament ( depressed(recently unemployed have a family), shame(unemployed), absent mindedness(forgetful memory loss on certain things like numbers or a grocery list, fickle mindedness, hurry, agreeable, arguing, others(sometimes untrusting of others).. etc )
- Your fears and recurring dreams.My fear of something bad happeneing to my daughter.
- Loss in memory if at all (names, words, streets etc.) Yes. all mostly, but at times not with conversations and stuff I do remember, but words, streets, numbers and etc. yes.
- Propensities ( tendency to do/think about a certain act) I need to do some things,but not getting them done.

3. Your response to changes in environment not really any of these examples are there for me. Just sometimes over the years this itchy feeling and scaley flakes occur and have to get them under control with shampoos and medication, but nothing really aggrivates it.

- Feel worse in the morning / afternoon / evening / night.
- Feel worse in cold or hot weather / climates.
- Feel worse in stormy or calm weather.
- Feel worse in dry or damp weather.
- Feel worse in motion / touch / jar / any particular position.

4. What are your cravings and aversions in food? I like lots of different foods, but don't crave nothing in particular.

- Cravings:

6. Write down the diseases running in your family.My grandfather was a heavy smoker, drinker and had a brain tumor, my father had a heart attack after being a heavy smoker for years, I am not a heavey smoker or remotely one, occasional if any.
7. Write down if you notice any abnormality with your sleep, hunger, thirst and bowel movements. I could drink more water, than soda.
8. What are the various diseases which you have suffered from in your life and do you think your present illness is having a relation to the disease or after effects of the drugs taken during the time. Not really, but have had allergies and had a medication back then called seldane, that I heard it could cause hairloss, but not confirmed.

Case Taking Sheet Part - 2

PARTICULAR SYMPTOMS (Related to the parts affected in your body)

9. Do you have any strange, rare, peculiar, unusual or personal symptom, feeling or a recurring pain in the affected parts?No just the oily residue on scalp and scales.
10. Describe your physical sufferings in the specific locations. oily on top, and some residue, and scales on sides, sideburn area, if I grow a mustache that too, and rear head bottom hairline area which is also thinning.
11. How does the suffering / pain get aggravated or ameliorated with the changing environment as suggested below:
- Time ( morning, afternoon, evening, night)
- Hot, cold, dry and wet environments.
- Touch, pressure, motion, jar, position, rubbing etc.
none just shampoos or coritzone stuff for dandruff/psoriasis.
12. Do you think there is a specific pattern of occurance of the suffering with regard to time, period or any internal biological changes in the body? I had the thinning first and then I had a time when I would urinate and then feel like it was not finished and a sperm like liquid would come out and I went to the doctor and he said it was normal and gave me medicine, it was a long time ago, but I know that hairloss and prostate are a little related in recent years.

Thank you

Any change observed at mental plane after taking the remedy?
kadwa last decade
I can't say that I noticed anything, but just the itching is the same, and seems that dry skin of face is getting worse, but that is not that bad, it's cold so I need some cream, but the issue on head and scalp, I know that there has to be something. What else can you recommend.
jbo308 last decade
The indicated homeo remedy should effect a change in one or many symptoms initially, so please report as vividly as possible. If there is no change absolutely then that shows that the right remedy was not given.

Please take three doses of Lycopodium 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily,only one day) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
