In today’s world, people are increasingly turning to alternative medicines and therapies to cure what ails them. It is becoming ever more apparent that homeopathic remedies can sometimes succeed where Western medicine fails. Baldness is one such area.
Hair loss can be very distressing, embarrassing and a cause of great anxiety. There are many myths surrounding the causes of baldness, but the truth of the matter is that both men and women suffer from hair loss for a variety of reasons including stress, fungal infection, poor circulation, genetics and, of course, good old fashioned age.
For centuries, the Western world has made attempts to conquer the receding hairline with little or no success. However, there are holistic ways to tackle alopecia.
Acupressure is linked to the Oriental tradition of acupuncture and is a particularly beneficial form of alternative therapy. At its most simple, acupressure is acupuncture without the needles. Acupressure is the application of pressure onto the acupuncture points of the body. Practitioners often use their hands, elbows or tools to apply pressure to the required area. The aim of this therapy is to balance the yin, yang and chi (qi) of the patient using the meridian system.
Acupuncture advocates believe that all ailments can be cured in this way. Subsequently, not only is acupressure helpful in treating baldness, it is also beneficial to the general health and well-being of the patient.
In addition, it is well documented that massage is very effective in the treatment of baldness, because it promotes blood iwc portuguese replica flow to the scalp. Therefore, the benefits of acupressure can be viewed in the same way.
Although it is possible for an acupuncturist to rolex gmt-master ii replica cure baldness specifically, there are claims that replica miu miu wallets hair growth is stimulated as a by-product of treating another complaint.
Often acupressure also combines an element of aromatherapy, because acupuncturists will use aromatherapy oils when providing an acupressure message. Oils such as lavender, jojoba and rosemary are said to be particularly beneficial to sufferers of hair loss. It is believed that massaging these oils into the scalp and allowing them to absorb into the skin can be very effective in the fight against baldness.
The sad truth is, just as there is new cure for the common cold, there is still no definitive cure, or quick fix, for alopecia. However, evidence does seem to suggest that alternative therapies can be extremely helpful in the fight against hair loss.
