Alopecia Areata

What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia areata is quite a common condition that causes patchy and sometimes complete hair loss, usually from the scalp, but can affect any part of the body. The condition can occur at any age and is considered to be due to autoimmunity i.e. where the body's immune system attacks and damages normal body tissues. In this case, it attacks the hair follicles or bulbs beneath the skin and "turns off" their abiltiy to grow.


About 50% of these patients recover spontaneously within 6 to 12 months, but many can suffer the condition for many years. There is reputedly no known cure, but I have increasing numbers of patients recovering completely using my wheatgrass extract. The patient and/or carer however, needs to commit to daily application for at least 12 months. The case below emphasises the importance of perseverance when using wheatgrass for alopecia.

Wheatgrass Treatment For Alociapa Treatment

Recovery may be brought about in the same way that wheatgrass produces rapid healing of injured body tissues such as skin, muscle and bone following injury. Wheatgrass appears to contain hormone-like molecules that stimulate growth factor activity. Growth factors are essential for promoting cell division and proliferation and for immune stimulation. This may well create an environment for re-activation of dormant hair follicles and subsequent hair re-growth.

Apply Wheatgrass Cream or Spray twice daily. Usually takes 2 or 3 months, but some good results can be expected. Wheatgrass appears to have a positive effect on auto-immune conditions such as alopecia areata, psoriasis and acne rosacea.
Case Study 1 - 6 year old boy

The little boy lost more than 50% of his hair when he was two. He has subsequently fully recovered using the wheatgrass spray, but it took 10 months. His grandmother never gave up, and it paid off.


I'll let her tell the story:


Dr Wheatgrass, my name is C. W. I have a 6 year old grandson who lives with me. He was diagnosed with alopecia when he was 2 years old. We have taken him to several different doctors. They have given him shots, vitamins, herbs. We have taken him out of town to specialists. We have spent several hundred dollars, out of pocket, trying to find a cure. All the doctors say the same thing, "There is no cure."


The kids in his school laughed at D and called him mean names. He likes school, but he would come home crying. My girlfriend got on the internet and found "Dr Wheatgrass" spray. She ordered some and gave it to D. I had him use it every day - just once a day. His hair appeared to be comming in so I bought 2 more bottles so not to run out. D now has a full head of hair and I give "Dr Wheatgrass" all the credit. It is an amazing product. I have told everyone about "Dr Wheatgrass" and have shown these pictures to back up the facts.


Thank you so much for your product. I am in your debt.

Case Study 2 - 9 year old boy

This young Australian boy lost most of his hair 5 years before treatment commenced using wheatgrass extract. His parents had spent a considerable amount on specialists fees and many different medications that failed to work. Although the boy's mother was skeptical, and at one stage was almost ready to give up, when some small tufts of hair began to appear after about 7 months daily application, she became much more enthusiastic. Her patience clearly paid off.


The main lesson to learn from this and other cases of alopecia I have managed to recover with wheatgrass, is to PERSEVERE. It may take a year for hair recovery to occur, but it's worth the effort. If confidentiality was not an issue, I'd love to show you a photograph of this little boy's smile with his new head of hair!


I'll let her tell the story:


Everything continues to improve. F's hair is growing strong and the gaps are slowly merging together. Still a way to go but on top of his head the hair is thick and healthy. We are all thrilled with the progress. He even shampooed his hair the other day,something he has not done in 4 years!!!!!


Treatment commenced with wheatgrass extract

8 months treatment with wheatgrass extract. New tufts of hair appearing.

9 months - scalp coverage continuing.

11 months after commencement of treatment. Hair is robust, growing strongly and almost completely covering the scalp.
Case Study 2 - 28 year old woman

This 28 year old Japanese woman suffered from alopecia areata for 5 years including a large, readily visible and embarrassing bald area at the back of her head. She had tried a number of treatments without success. She first attended my clinic on 14 August. After applying wheatgrass in a cream base every second or third day, she regained complete hair re-growth within 4 months. After over a year, hair remains normal. I have increasing numbers of patients recovering completely using this treatment.
