Light as a feather, Stiff as a board
I am sharing one of my patients case study of Alopecia.
17 year old male patient started developing this bald spot in his senior year in high school. The spot was pea size in the beginning and then grew about 2 inches wide. The patient had been to many different doctors. All his hormones were normal, no sign of infection. He was a teenager and was offcourse very embarrassed to get a hair cut. He started growing hair to hide it. Since the spot was growing slowly his mother and him got quite concerned.
I treated this patient with acupuncture. After 4-5 weeks of treatment the bald spot had hair growing back.
The picture on left was taken when I started the treatment and picture on right after 8 weeks of treatment.
He had a hair cut after 7 weeks of treatment and hence the picture on the right has less dense hair.
Treatment protocol involved 3-4x a week acupuncture treatment only no oral herbs. After 4 weeks the treatment frequency was reduced to 1-2 x a week.
Unexplained bald spots in Chinese medicine are called ghost spots and they are supposed to be related to stress.
This spot was in the area of Du 16.

I’ve definitely got a belly now and loving it! Turned 32 on Saturday and the best birthday present by far is the little guy who kicks me all the time. So grateful for all of the love and health in my life.
Happy Monday, everyone! #giovannalicata
