The word alopecia means hair loss, but it is also used to describe the type of hair loss, such as alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune type of patchy hair loss where the immune system causes destruction to the hair follicle and hair loss is the result typically starting in small, round patches that can occur anywhere over the entire head.
Alopeica areata is generally a temporary condition where the hair follicle can recover and regrow. It is important to establish the state of the hair follicle when alopecia areata is noticed. Alopecia areata can occur for unknown reasons but it can also be traced back to an environment in the body of lowered immunity. Autoimmune is a topic that is gaining a lot of interest in the science world as many autoimmune conditions are being uncovered.
Autoimmune Alopecia Areata and Treatment for Hair Loss:
- Alopecia means hair loss
- Alopecia areata means patchy hair loss
- Alopeica areata is generally a temporary condition
- Alopecia areata is autoimmune
- Autoimmune can be balanced with life strategies
We can be born with genetic autoimmune tendencies, but we can also be exposed to environments that can lead to autoimmune situations. Either way it is important to understand how to support the immune system to protect and prevent autoimmune conditions where possible. Most cases of alopecia areata I come across are temporary and full recovery is possible, but we also want to educate how to prevent recurring alopecia areata.
Lifestyle and nutrition play a big role in autoimmune alopecia areata. Supporting the immune system, maintaining above normal nutritional status, stress management, understanding and avoiding environmental exposure are good life strategies to overcome and prevent most cases of triggered alopecia areata.
