Hair loss can be caused by multiple factors such as a poor diet, stress or hormone imbalance. However, in Chinese medicine, acupuncture treats hair loss
by improving the circulation of qi and blood in the scalp to have a sustainable growth of healthy hair and preventing it from falling.
According to Chinese medicine, a good flow of qi and blood will properly nourish the scalp and maintain healthy hair. This means that if the flow of qi is interrupted (can be caused by a deficiency of qi and blood or stagnation of qi and blood), the scalp will not get proper nutrients to stay healthy. Specifically, blood and qi deficiency can by an unhealthy diet or the inability of the body to absorb nutrients compared to qi and blood stagnation, where it can be due to stress or hormone imbalance.
What can I do to Ensure the Efficiency of Acupuncture?
- In order for the acupuncture to work, regular appointments are necessary as the stimulation of hair growth is a process that needs to be done more than once.
- A daily massage on the scalp to encourage hair regrowth. The massage can be done by gently rubbing the head with your fingers twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.
- Have a proper and healthy diet: nutrients such as Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12 and Biotin are known to help maintaining and contributing to the growth of healthy hair. Omega 3 fatty acids can be easily found in salmon, walnuts and flax seeds. As for Vitamin B12, it is commonly found in eggs, poultry and meat and Biotin can be taken as supplements.
