Hair thinning and spot balding from past year

Hi
I am from Mumbai.Working female. Age 32 years. I have one kid and from past one year I am facing hair loss in on-off mode.I had a natural bald spot in middle of my hair line.Now, the hair is receding from both sides of the natural bald spot.
I used to have very very thick hair voluminous actually. Even post pregnancy hair loss did not not cause a reduction uptil from last year May.
The hair volume on both sides of bald spot has become very sparse and although there are fine hair they contribute to a balding type look.
Secondly, the volume of my hair is really gone down.
I usually tie a pony and always see hair in hair band.
My hair has almost become brittle ,coming off easily when brushed or pulled.even during sleep over the pillow.
I have naturally wavy hair.
Let me give background on nutrition
I am a vegetarian. Have multivits, calcium tabs, milk,no rice and veggies(most of them).
I take 3-5 cups of tea in a day.
I take very less water(almost a litre a day only)
Breakfast is erratic and not regular.

Kindly help as I want my voluminous hair back and ofcourse my receding hairline to be full of hair again.
I dont want to try Minoxidil or whatever that is chemically sold.
I have faith in homeopathy that it will solve my issue without fail.

lazy about career, always trying to do many things at a time, very fickle minded,focus/concentration is poor(from past 5 years this is emerging trait)
hateful towards Mother-in-law & husband's attitude towards me. Timid about taking bold steps in career, life. short tempered but this has greatly reduced

in past 3 years. creative,stubborn about own beliefs, day-dreamer, not far-sighted about career,MONEY especially. not overly concerned about status,

appearance,fashion,though I dress well and get complimented on every important occasion about my looks, very protective of my child and eager to teach child

new things,desire to make my child a successful person. I forgive easily,but do not forget. I dont keep grudges except in case of my in-laws and husband.

5. If money was not an issue and you had a month of vacation, what would you do :
feed orphaned kids at orphanages, buy them clothes and needed stuff.
practice meditation.
travel to far Paris, London, US,Australia, New Zealand, the Taj , pyramids, and some beach side with just my kid.
Buy an independent house with lots of space for gardening.
learn cooking various cuisines.
buy a car, a scooty.
Invest in such a way that I do not have to work and can live off my investments and educate my child and spend time maximum with him.


6. How is your relationship with your parents, spouse, siblings, children etc.
I have a very damaged and unrepairable relationship with my hubby. I am still in the marriage for the sake of the kid. He is very insulting about me,my

family.My Parents are also aware of this.
I have a love-hate relation with my parents. but I know i can count on them till I die.
I do not trust my husband or his parents. He has been violent and his Mother is aware of it.
I hate my Mother in law.I can not forgive her for the things she has said about me,and the biased way she treats me.
She supports and encourages my husband to dominate me.belittles me on everything.infact she also advises me to bear the torture coz she thinks her son,my

hubby is a very caring person and looks after me very well. I am regarded as a ZERO in the family.i have no respect from my husband and my in-laws.
I have a brother and we have a cordial relationship these days.we have not fought or any dislike is present between us.but we just refrain from interfering

in each others life.
About my SON: i love him beyond my understanding and I make every effort to imbibe in him good things.
I am very protective of him and fear him being converted by my husband considering the way he treats me in the house in front of my child.

7. If relationship is not ok, what’s wrong and how is it affecting you : I am in the marriage for the sake of the child. I badly want to have second child

but i can not tolerate my husband at all. I have seen all levels of violence and rage tactics by him,like breaking things, hitting me, hitting/cutting

himself, taunts , insults over my job, looks, my side of family.and these days i do not argue most of the time with him. I try to be a role model for my

child by not engaging in arguments in front of child, not insulting his father.I have said this same thing to my husband time and time again to correct but

he doesnt. my MIL has always added fuel to fire in our fights.Although they do not stay with us in same city, when ever they visit, our rate of number of

fights increase as my hubby gets a support from her.MY FIL is a coward and suppressed person.me and him are treated in same insulting degraded way at home.We

both have no respect.even in small matters when i have bought a water bottle in the house, Both MIL and Hubby have insulted me over my choice and pointed out

that i have no sense in buying stuff or about life in general.I have contemplated suicide but I love my child and do not wish to agonise my child/parents

over my death. i am also lacking confidence in myself that I can succeed in job or anything at all. my self esteem has gone down and I constantly have mental

chatter which is either hateful or negative when i am in bad mood. most of the days I do not let the insults and rest of it bother me,and do my own stuff,

but at night I recollect it and cry about it.I have no willpower left to learn new things or fight back. I have become timid and maybe a suppressed person.

but there is huge amount of rage in me. which I do not want to show coz i do not want my child to be affected by it.
i yearn for respect and fair treatment from hubby at least.but I am convinced he will never do it.
He is accusing me of adultery.but this is not the case.I am popular in my office due to my looks and my nature in between my friends is very vibrant and

outgoing. Male/Guys flirt with me and compliement me. i have more male friends but very few select female friends who are my friends from more than a decade.
I vent my issues with my friends and feel good,but really its not taking me anywhere.coz all they do is advise me to divorce my hubby.
which i do not want to do, at this stage. I want to prove to myself that I am not a failure like my hubby thinks and really succeed as a person on the whole.
On some level I want him to be ashamed thru his own deeds and come to realization that he has mistreated me as a person.

8. Do you smoke/drink/drugs, if yes, details of why & since when - No.I treasure my body and never done smoking ,drugs or drinks ever.

9. What is your main health problem & its symptoms : weight is not reducing. Hairfall is my biggest issue as it used to make me feel confident about myself.
I was very proud of my hair. You can say, it was my strength in terms of my looks. losing my hair has made me lose confidence in myself on a very deep level.
Symptoms: I had a natural bald spot in the mid-line of my hairline.but both sides of that spot and rest of the head had volumionous hair.
I literally couldnt hold the hair in one hairband when i was younger. Post my marriage, my hair length is not going beyond shoulder level. only during my

preganancy i refused to cut it and so it grew till waist length. post partum i lost a lot of my hair volume. Now from 2013 May till date, I have lost 3/4 volume of my hair. Also the hair near the naturally bald spot has also reduced and is making my hair line go inside and the hair around it is sparse and small hair only cover it.Hair quality has reduced greatly. and is often brittle,easily pluckable from root, shineless, weak, and turns oily in couple of days.I feel like hair is getting pulled when i tie in pony tail and if i leave it open ,they tangle easily.My hair is naturally wavy.

No amount of treatment, be it homeopathic or allopathic, can cure if the persistent cause is not eliminated e.g. if you keep moving a broken bone repeatedly then it will never heal since you are not giving it the required break to heal and set the bone. The same logic applies to constant immense stress (don’t confuse it with daily life stress which is necessary to survive).

Extremely unhappy relationships are toxic in nature and only breed more contempt & ill health unless they are addressed and proper remedial measures are not taken.

In your case, I think you definitely need to seek some help (maybe a marriage counselor) before we embark on your treatment as I am certain that homeopathic treatment alone will fail sooner or later.

Hi,
Surprising to see this kind of answer on my question.
In this forum I have gone through almost all hair loss questions and you,Dear Sir have given remedies for every person who has answered your questionnaire less frankly than me. Infact I am pretty sure that you would have given me remedy if I had given very vague and basic answers like others to the questions.
Also,you have not once questioned any married or single person for whom remedy was failing whether it was due to their personal issues and neither have they replied with pretty indepth insights about their situation. Instead you increased their dosage or changed it.
I am sorry to sound bitter here but you have literally thrown away my case and I realize its because of my answers.
In reply to your advice, I know such cases need a marriage counselor but is that an uncommon thing today?? Right from kids to dying patients are taking psychiatric help,and yet most of them are prescribed valium n other such medication.
Very few are prescribed alternative medicine like Homeopathy. And as far as my knowledge of Homeopathy is, It is very important to have a good idea about the mental situation of the person before the doctor starts the treatment. You are pretty much right when you said that 'Before we embark on the treatment, I need counseling' But dear Sir, let me assure you, I have done it already and I have full faith that Mental counseling is not needed by Me but it is very much required for my In-laws and my Hubby.
Anyways thank you for your insight.
Have a good day!

What I have written is just an opinion, not a judgment. Imo, you as a couple need help.

I can prescribe as such, not an issue, but if you are looking for cure the prescription might not cut it. Let me know.
