I met my 56-year-old neighbour in the street and we started going for walks together. She always wore a hat during our walks. Once when she had coryza I gave her CC19.2 and she got better. This led to her telling me that she had lost all her hair from her scalp about 10 years ago; she had many investigations done and was told it was Alopecia. She also had hypothyroidism and was on thyroxin. Apart from this she had had frequent headaches for the last 24 years. I formed a rapport with her and she took her hat off one day and exposed her scalp.
I saw she had a very shiny scalp with patches of hyper pigmentation and patchy areas of dry scaling. There were a few strands of hair on the base of her neck but other areas were devoid of hair, though she did have hair under her arms and pubic hair. I gave her the following:
#1. CC6.2 Hypothyroid + CC11.2 Hair problems + CC11.3 Headaches…TDS
She took her remedy for one month and felt much better. I reviewed her weekly and 3 weeks later she had tiny hair growth all over her scalp. In August of 2012, she told me that she was very unhappy and I added to her existing remedy:
#2. CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + SR426 Elm + SR 435 Mimulus…TDS
She continued her above remedy for alopecia, hypothyroidism and tension headache for the next 4 months. She was also taking many supplements and facial masks.
In February of 2013 she was not on any remedy. I was away overseas and when I came back she told me she had seen a dermatologist without much success. Her hair was falling as well. She had dark patches on her face and neck. She had also used some facial mask, which may have caused an allergic reaction. I gave her:
#3. CC11.1 Hair tonic+ CC21.3 Skin allergies…TDS
This was taking so long to improve, so when she came to me again, I added:
#4. CC4.2 Liver & Gallbladder tonic + CC11.2 Hair problems + CC13.1 Kidney & Bladder tonic + CC21.1 Skin tonic…TDS
Her hair started to grow though it was thin and long. I told her I needed to trim it. First she was not ready. I told her it will appear more full if trimmed. She agreed to have it trimmed. She is slowly getting her hair back. She is feeling well, goes to aerobic twice a week and is much happier and more settled.
