Are you at a tipping point in your health? You aren't feeling your best, you wake up lethargic even after getting an adequate amount of sleep. Or... You can barely sleep. Perhaps, you are always constipated; have terrible headaches, find it extremely difficult to lose weight, are agitated easily and just overall don't feel your best. You my friend are at a tipping....What you do next is crucial.
Have you ever experienced driving your car into a repair shot and telling the mechanic that your car is acting strange. After checking it over, you are told that they can not FIND anything wrong. You leave and begin to worry that something is going to happen to the car, but you don't know when and where!
Alopecia totalis refers to the complete loss of scalp hair. The dis'ease normally begins with a patient noticing one or more small bald spots on his or her scalp (at which point the disease is classified as alopecia areata). As the condition progresses into total hair loss, it will become classified as alopecia areata totalis.
This autoimmune dis'ease occurs when affected hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by a person’s own white blood cells. This causes hair to stop growing and then fall out. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy may also be responsible for alopecia totalis; this is known as drug-induced alopecia totalis.
Alopecia totalis does not discriminate, affecting as many males as it does females. Although alopecia totalis may occur in people of all ages, it most commonly affects children. This disease is difficult for all who experience it, but it can be especially painful for children and their families—especially those children aged four and above, as they begin to pay more attention to the way that others react to them.
This is one dis'ease worth getting to the root of. The first question is always, why is the immune system attacking the hair follicles? Let's look briefly at some reasons of those reasons.
