Not sure. Probably gets worse when stressed.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

No it makes me feel awkward.

Not very attached.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

I am afraid of spiders. Also of loneliness, darkness, and social situations. I often dream of my teeth falling off.

More. Usually in trunk.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

Bowel movements 1 or 2 times a day. Stool is normal.

I know hair loss may seem like something trivial, but having it this early is really upsetting. Thank you so much in advance for any help or advice you may provide.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Ignatia 200 as follows and see how that affects over 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 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.

Thank you so much for your reply.

One question. Should I purchase 200x or 200c, or does it not matter?

Thanks again

Please ignore my last post, I figured it out.

Thanks again. I will try it and report back.

Hi again,
So its been about fifteen days since I started taking Ignatia. I think I can see little hairs growing in places where I'd lost my hair, but I'm not too sure.

My question is, should I continue taking the ignatia, or stop? Or should I try a new set of homeopathic remedies?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

(On a side note, I think I also feel less depressed... not sure if it's because of the ignatia, but I feel better overall)
jimbates 4 years ago
Please don't take any remedy until you lose your 'feel good'. Whenever you loose that take three doses of Ignatia 200 and wait for 15 days.

Hi jimbates,

Don't know if you stopped minoxidil, but you need to stop
using that. It can have bad effects on your hormone levels which
will contribute to feeling depressed.

Okay, I will stop using minoxidil.

Is there anything else I should be applying topically, like a certain shampoo or cream? Or is it better to just continue taking Ignatia?

jimbates 4 years ago
You may apply coconut oil or mahabhringraj oil.
kadwa 4 years ago
Okay then, I will continue to use the Ignatia and buy mahabhringraj oil to apply.

Thank you so much for all your help. I definitely feel better, and I have hope that the condition of my hair will improve.

Does this work for all ?? Or should we decide based on filling the questionnaire ?? My cousin is also having same issue .. But he is not on this site .and he is otherwise healthy too.. No other problems at all... Pls advise

Hi Hope1234,

No it does not work for all- homeopathy should be specific to
the person.

Your cousin can join the forum, make a thread and have the answers
to the questions that are on this post.

The more details you give the better. Also it should be in the
patients own words. So if your cousin can't do that maybe you
could ask him the questions and put his answers on-

To make a treatment thread:

Go to the top of forum first page and look above first post.
Click button Post New Topic-and you will create a thread.

Hi again,

I had a couple of questions regarding the homeopathy. It's been a couple of weeks now, and I just want to know if I'm doing things right. I was wondering if you could answer some of my questions.

1. I am taking fish oil (1000 mg) and saw palmetto (500 mg). Do you happen to know if I should stop taking these?

2. I'm taking 200 ck Ignatia Amara liquid dilution, 10 drops in a glass of water, whenever I start feeling bad. I take 3 doses for a day, as kadwa suggested. Is this ok?

3. I use pine tar all-natural shampoo. Is there a better alternative?

4. As simone717 suggested, I apply the mahabhringraj oil every night and wash it out in the morning. Should I wash it out sooner?

5. Is there anything else I could be doing or taking?

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your time.

Hi again,

I apologize if I asked too many questions, I will ask less. I just want to know if I am taking the medicine correctly. I definitely feel better when I take the medicine, but I'm not sure if I am seeing any results with my hair.

I recently bought 200ck Ignatia Amara liquid, and it says to take 10 drops in water, 3 times a day. Is this how I should take it?

Also, do you have any other recommendations, such as shampoo, etc?

Thank you.
