Alopecia Areata Problem! Help!I am 28 and have had patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) for as long as I can remember. Sometimes it goes into remission, but right now its worse than ever. Is there anything I can do? I am a recent vegetarian (since March '11), I exercise regularly, and eat very healthy with lots of veggies. I see a dermatologist for my hair loss, he injects my scalp with a steroid. The injections usually help, but they don't seem to be helping this time. I am also bothered by acne (about a pimple or two a week, the deep cystic kind), and my skin is very blotchy, dry and uneven. My hair is very dry, brittle, and fine. I try many different moisturizing conditioners but nothing helps. The reason I went vegetarian is because I had high cholesterol (213). This baffled the doctors because I am young, no kids, in good shape and have always eaten very healthy. Also, I strictly limit dairy... I don't tolerate milk products well. When I gave up meat, my cholesterol dropped to 160. LDL less than 100 and HDL 68. I really don't know what to do about this hair loss. Can anyone recommend anything?

Alopecia also responds to this therapy Do not however permit the dermatologist to experiment with Steroid injections on your scalp as the result can be dangerous.
The Arnica prescribed will also help your Acne and your Cholesterol.
The loss of hair is usually arrested in 2 weeks and in 2 months the new growth of hair is seen between the existing hair roots. Inspection for the new hair must be done in a darkened room with a flashlight by someone who has good eyesight.
The remedies are as noted below:
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
Arnica Q or Mother Tincture to be mixed with Olive Oil to be massaged in a 20% emulsion daily into the hair roots. the 20% emulsion is made using 20 parts Arncia Q mixed into 80 parts Olive oil. The emulsion must be shaken hard to emulsify with the Olive oil immediately before application daily into the roots of the hair daily after a shower.
Ferr Phos 6x 3 tablets taken twice daily.
Cod liver oil capsules dose 1-2 daily.
Exercise is essential to sweat it out.
Drink at least 3 liters of liquids preferably water daily.
No harsh shampoos.
The Wet dose is made up as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also known as Liquid Dilution.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles.
This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is sipped as directed.
Report progress in a month or earlier.
