Alopecia areata (spot balding) hair recovery. 3 Cases

About Alopecia

Alopecia areata – patchy and sometimes total hair loss, (usually on the scalp, but also on other parts of the body), is often incurable.

Occurring at any age, it is most likely due to the body’s immune system damaging hair follicles by “turning off” their ability to grow. This is known as an  “autoimmune” condition.

About 50% of these patients recover spontaneously within 6 to 12 months but others may lose part or all of their hair permanently.

Wheatgrass can assist recovery of alopecia

Alopecia areata is quite a common condition that causes patchy and sometimes complete hair loss, most often on the scalp. It occurs at any age and is considered to be due to the body’s immune system attacking hair follicles and “turning off” their abiltity to grow.

About 50% of patients recover spontaneously within 6 to 12 months, but others can suffer permanent hair loss. There is no known medical cure for this condition, yet wheatgrass extract was responsible for completely recovering the hair of the three cases described here.

Treatment instructions

Apply a little wheatgrass extract to the affected area twice a week (Monday, Friday) and persevere for at least 12 months. Sometimes, hair re-growth can appear after only several weeks’ treatment. Do not overtreat, as this can slow or prevent recovery.

Case No.1.

This 28 year old Japanese woman suffered from alopecia areata for 5 years. Note the large, readily visible bald patch on the back of her scalp. Numerous treatments had not worked for her. She began applying wheatgrass extract several times a week, and just four months after commencing treatment, (twice weekly), her hair had recovered completely.

Case No. 2.

This young boy lost most of his hair 5 years before he began wheatgrass treatment. His parents had spent a small fortune on dermatologists and medications to no avail. Although his mother was skeptical about using a “herbal remedy”, when some small tufts of new hair appeared, her hope for a cure strengthened considerably.

It may take a year for the hair to recover, but in most cases, perseverance has worked well. Time has taught me that “less is best” when wheatgrass is used for  healing. Had this child been treated only twice weekly, he would most likely have recovered sooner, which is easy to say with hindsight.

Mother’s comment at 10 months:

“Everything continues to improve. F’s hair is growing strong and the gaps are slowly merging together. Still a way to go but on top of his head the hair is thick and healthy. We are all thrilled with the progress. He even shampooed his hair the other day,something he has not done in 4 years!!!!!

Case No. 3.

In this case, the little boy lost more than 50% of his hair when he was two. He has since fully recovered after wheatgrass treatment, but it took 10 months. Fortunately for him, his grandmother never gave up.

Grandmother’s story:

“Doctor, I have a 6 year old grandson who lives with me. He was diagnosed with alopecia when he was 2 years old. We have taken him to several different doctors. They have given him shots, vitamins, herbs. We have taken him out of town to specialists. We have spent several hundred dollars, out of pocket, trying to find a cure.  All the doctors say the same thing, “There is no cure.”

The kids in his school laughed at D and called him mean names. He likes school, but he would come home crying. My girlfriend got on the internet and found “Wheatgrass extract”. She ordered some and gave it to D. I had him use it every day – just once a day. His hair appeared to be coming in so I bought 2 more so not to run out. D now has a full head of hair and I give “Wheatgrass” all the credit. It is amazing. I have told everyone about “Wheatgrass” and have shown these pictures to back up the facts.

Thank you so much for your product. I am in your debt.

Ms. C. W. Ohio, USA. November, 2007

January 2007. Severe alopecia. 4 y.o. child. Treatment with wheatgrass extract commenced.

3 months later. Note new tufts of hair beginning to appear.

After 9 months the child has a full head of hair.

These three cases, plus a number of others I have successfully treated, constitute a strong case for the use of a herbal remedy (there are most likely many more besides wheatgrass) for treating this “untreatable” condition. However, it is important to bear in mind that generally, “less is best” when using wheatgrass extract for healing purposes e.g. diabetic foot ulcers.
