Natural herbs and therapy to combat alopecia

Nature has its own way of healing. The only thing we lack is adequate knowledge in that domain. Although advancement in science and technology is coming up with newer ways of treating diseases, it is making us drift away from natural modes of healing. A pharmaceutical drug is usually preferred over a natural herb, only because it is quicker to produce results. What people do not realize is that nature has no side effects, therefore the results that a natural therapy would produce, although will be slower, but will last for a longer time.

You can treat your own alopecia using natural remedies. One of the simplest remedies which has produced promising results, is using onion juice on scalp. Onions are an antiseptic as they contain a great amount of sulfur. To treat alopecia with onion, crush an onion and take out its juice. Use this juice to massage onto your scalp for about 15 minutes and let it dry naturally. You may also rub onion skin on bald areas. After the juice dries on the scalp, shampoo and wash with warm water.

Another alternate is to use rosemary leaves. You can boil them, followed by straining the leaves. Use this water to wash your hair to achieve remarkable difference in alopecia.
