Hair loss - diagnosis and treatment  



Chinese medicine considers the person's outer appearance representation of the state of internal organs, the movement of life energy and blood flow condition.

The Chinese approach to slowing the aging process presents a special kind of thinking that sees the unity of body and soul, when illness kept right way is through balancing the flow of energy in the meridians, emotional support and maintaining the right lifestyle and balanced.

According to Chinese theory, the hair gets the energy of kidney yin energy and blood from the liver.


Hair loss is caused by a combination of reasons, including: Stress, Overwork, Poor nutrition,  and very dry climate. These conditions may cause thinning and hair loss due to the weakening roots.


Chinese medicine attaches great importance to deal with the situation when you see the first symptoms and when the situation is already chronic and often irreversible longer.

It is important to see the tendencies of the body and prevent worsening of symptoms and imbalances in body and soul.


Chinese medicine has a proven solution for thousands of years to the problems of hair loss and scalp imbalance, through a combination of acupuncture with Chinese herbs.
