This question comes from a hair loss sufferer’s email inquiry:
I’ve recently started to investigate hair loss medications, and I’m wondering what you think about homeopathic treatments? Are they effective for treating hair loss? Any particular medications you would recommend?
For a variety of individuals, homeopathic treatment is a popular and very trusted area of alternative medicine. Many people like the naturalistic elements and truly believe in its ability to heal without utilizing modern surgical and medical treatments.
However, within the realm of modern hair restoration most individuals suggest straying from “unproven” regimens, especially as mainstay treatments. This doesn’t mean that naturalistic cures can’t be effective or that utilizing modern pharmaceuticals and surgical techniques is always the “best medicine,” but because hair loss can be a rapid and progressive condition, it’s usually best to treat early and efficiently.
While homeopathic hair loss treatments may be good adjuncts, I highly recommend investigating proven medications like Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) for your alopecia. Outside of surgical hair restoration (and even in conjunction with hair transplant surgery), these are the most trusted, proven products, and I highly suggest investigating these medications.
