Homeopathic Treatment of Male Pattern Baldness (MPB)

With a few lucky exceptions, hair loss is something that almost all men have to face as they age. The most common type of baldness in men is androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness (MPB). The main reasons for this condition are hormonal issues and genetic predisposition. In addition, other factors like medical conditions, side effects of medications, bad diet and stress/worry,  can also accentuate the problem.

The Signs Of MPB

MPB is typically a progressive condition that starts slowly, often imperceptibly, and continues until the amount of hair loss is obvious. Doctors use what is known as the Norwood-Hamilton scale to identify the various stages of hair loss caused by MPB. These include:

       ·   The hairline begins to recede from the front of the scalp.
     
       ·   The loss continues in cycles and in each cycle the hair continually becomes less  dense and weaker.

       ·    The hair loss increases until it affects the top of the head.

       ·    The loss continues to expand down the sides of the head.

Traditional Treatment

Traditional medicine does not have a recognized and accepted cure for hair loss. There are some formulations that may cause a temporary spurt in hair growth or act in other ways to provide the short-term appearance of reduced MPB. There are also options like hair transplants etc. These only work in some cases and even if they do, there is always the risk that the transplants themselves will start to fall out over time.  The search for a cure for baldness has been going on for ages and  pharmaceutical companies continue to look for a solution because they know that if one is found, it will be a billion-dollar invention.

The problem with the traditional treatment for MPB is that, it deals only with the issue of how to cause hair to grow again on the scalp. It does not address the factors that have caused the hair loss. This is the reason why homeopathic treatment for MPB has become so popular.

Homeopathy And MPB

Homeopathy acts on the principle that imbalance in the human metabolic system  causes  illness and disease. The causes for the imbalance can be external -such as an infection, or internal – as in the case of MPB which is mainly genetic. When you consult a homeopathic doctor about MPB, he or she will do a complete examination to determine the various factors that influence the condition and the speed at which it spreads. Once this is done, there are a number of medications that can be prescribed, to enable the metabolism regain its natural balance and promote hair growth. In other words, homeopathy enables the body to be more effective in fighting off the signs and symptoms of MPB naturally. This means that the results are free from side-effects and long lasting.

If you are an adult male and suspect that you may have MPB, consult a homeopathic doctor without delay. The earlier the condition is diagnosed and treatment begun, the better the results.
