Chinese medicine is an effective remedy for curing hair loss problem; it stops or eliminates the hair loss by treating its underlying cause. Several Chinese herbs are recognized for their role in promoting hair growth and are used for remedying hair lessness since time unmemorable. These Chinese herbs restore the hair by building blood, balancing hormones, restoring Kidney Energy, and directing nutritious blood to the scalp.
There are many causes behind the hair loss and thinning hair including poor nutrition, stress, hormonal imbalance, some prescription drugs, cancer, genetics and thyroid disease. These conditions may occur in both, men as well as women. Chinese medication also addresses the genetic-based hair loss.
Genetic patterned hair loss or baldness is often accredited to the chemical DHT (5-alpha Di-HydroTestosterone). When the DHT level in the body increases, the follicle react towards it as a result of which the blood flow toward the follicle reduces and thereby the hair’s growth cycle impairs. Consequently, the hair follicle shrinks and the size and thickness of the hair begin to reduce, finally the follicle dies putting a full stop against the hair production. The signs of live follicles exist in those areas of the scalp having shorter, fuzzy, fine hairs; Chinese tonic herb remedies can breathe new life in these slightly liven follicles.
Basic principle in Chinese Medicine is that hairs reflect Liver and Kidney energies and Blood: a deficient circulation or inadequate amount of Blood may lead to the hair loss. The Liver and Kidneys have strong influence on hormones. The condition of hair follicles can also be plagued by the amount of toxins in the blood, and the Kidney and Liver are chief organs responsible for toxins elimination.
In the first step of treatment, the quality of blood and circulation of blood to the scalp both are improved. Both these functions are performed by specific herb remedies such as fo-ti or he shu wu, dang gui, drynaria, ligustrum and sesame. This treatment takes 3-12 months for completing conditional on the severity of the hair condition and duration that the condition exists.
When combined with healthy lifestyle, the traditional Chinese Medicine can restore the thick and healthy hair to you. Shou wu, or fo ti present in the Chinese herbal formula is the Chinese herb that is responsible for bringing back the healthy, shiny and strong hair.
