About Me:
I have been having alopecia off and on for the last 30 years.I had thick long hair but lost it when I was 20 years.I lost hair all over legs, arms, etc.After 10 years got back the hair on my scalp.But it falls off after some time. However, I do not require a wig but the hair is very sparse.At present, I'm shedding hair!So I guess it's back to treatment.
Do you have alopecia?

I also think that since this is an autoimmune disease it is better to live with it not change it. Good food, healthy lifestyle ,meditation and de-stressing activities will help .

I lost all my hair in my twenties(I'm now 56 ),got it back at 30 due to a combination of Ayurvedic treatment and just old-fashioned grace of God and parents' blessings. However, the good times are slowly ebbing as there are huge patches all over and postmenopausal period is not conducive for hair growth.…

Hi Shaila

I strongly believe that awareness will surely have a big impact on public’s attitude towards alopecia victims. Many people have this misconception that it’s a contagious disease and they try to avoid affected person. Right information about alopecia and its awareness will force them to take this problem positively and understand victim’s emotional and psychological state. Mass awareness will help us to create better environment for alopecians so that they don’t feel hostile, alienated and segregated.
With such revolutionary steps we can discuss critical issues linked with this problem and focus appropriate media attention to raise alopecia awareness drive on a larger scale. I have a vision to create our own national organization with its support groups all over India taking care of alopecia awareness, research and helping people in coping with it.

Lets come together and walk hand in hand to integrate alopecians in India. Just pen down my contact information and get in touch with me through gmail so that i can share my complete vision with you.
