Natural treatment for Alopecia areata?
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. In the majority of cases, hair falls out in small patches around the size of a quarter. Sometimes, it can lead to the complete loss of hair on the scalp. Alopecia areata occurs when white blood cells attack the cells in hair follicles, causing them to dramatically slow down hair production. Is there any natural treatment to treat this condition?
