But does acupuncture help hair fall? If so, how does it help?
A Prelude to Hair Loss – Why does hair loss occur?
Like all the other parts of our body, our hair also requires proper nourishment via the blood to grow properly. A deficit in the nutrients supplied to our hair can result in hair loss.
Losing your hair can be devastating. Hair loss is indeed a progressive disorder. It may begin as few strands while combing your hair and before you know it, you’ll start to notice patches or bald spots which are accompanied by thinned out hair.
How Acupuncture helps to arrest Hair Loss?
Acupuncture uses the basic principle of proper blood flow to the hair follicles to treat hair loss. Acupuncture on certain regions of the body and scalp helps in restoring blood flow and nutrient supply to the hair follicles. Acupuncture also helps in reviving the lost energy and revitalizes the hair follicles. This allows the hair follicles to regain contact with the roots and keep the hair strands tightly bound with its root. The treatment type basically provides a healthy environment for the proper growth of our hair. Scalp acupuncture stimulates neurohormonal and the endocrine system which activates and improves the functioning of the sebaceous gland, which is vital for healthy hair.
Treat Alopecia with Acupuncture
Acupuncture is also known to treat Alopecia areata which is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss and results in bald patches. This occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your hair follicles, which results in hair fall.
