Alopecia Treatment

hair loss (Alopecia)

Alopecia Treatment - Despite what you may have been told, there is hope…

Our Guardian featured Clinic located in a medical house in Harley Street, London, has welcomed many beautiful individuals experiencing Alopecia.

Our Alopecia treatment uses a functional medicine approach. The need for this dedicated and specialist clinic became abundantly clear following the frustrations Alopecia patients spoke of prior to being treated by Guardian featured Deborah Grant.

Patients spoke of the lack of support they had previously received in their hair loss treatment; the hurtful diagnosis they had been given that their hair would never grow back; they spoke of shame, depression, loss of identity as well as social paranoia; and the inconvenience and itchiness of expensive wigs.

Alopecia is usually caused by a problem with the immune system (the body’s natural defence against infection and illness). It is far more common among people with other autoimmune conditions. Our approach is usually very effective at treating such conditions and results can be seen as the body responds to the hair loss treatment and hair growth is stimulated.

In our approach to Alopecia treatment, we use diagnostic functional medicine testing to investigate and determine the cause of each patient’s hair loss or Alopecia areata. Each prescription is prepared and dispensed to meet the unique needs of each patient and is based on their medical test results. Our patients find that this gentle approach works best for Alopecia treatment and clear results can usually be seen through the subsequent hair regrowth. We do not have a one size fits all approach.

In addition, we address the psychological impact Alopecia has on the patient as it is a condition which not only clearly affects the body, but takes a silent toll on the mind too. Each individual prescription is formulated to also address symptoms ranging from mild to moderate depression to stress and adrenal exhaustion.

Following our Alopecia treatment, patients speak of regaining their lost sense of identity, of being given hope and encouragement as they witness, over time, the regrowth of their hair. This approach also usually works well for treating any gut issues or IBS symptoms which are so often associated with Alopecia and other autoimmune conditions; hence many of these related symptoms may also dissipate or disappear too as the body is brought back into balance.

If you would like an appointment for Alopecia treatment, we would be delighted to help you.
