Alopecia is a very common condition that causes hair to fall out in small patches. 
It is an auto-immune disease in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles leading to hair loss. The hair often comes out in clumps and the amount of hair loss is different for everyone. 

Most traditional treatments involve the use of corticosteroids and creams that help suppress the immune system. However, most of them come with serious side effects and with only temporary hair growth. 

Healthy hair growth requires a complex range of nutrients.Hair loss is often often linked to nutritional deficiencies. Iron deficiency anemia is a major cause of hair loss in women. 

At HMC the goal of our treatment is to provide nutritional support for the proper functioning of the immune system as well as to stimulate hair growth by correcting any nutritional deficiencies. 

Providing vital nutrients helps reset the misguided immune system as well as ensures that the follicles get all the requirements needed to achieve optimal growth.
