Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness, is a condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body. Often it results in a few bald spots on the scalp, each about the size of a coin.
  • Autoimmune diseases result from the failure of an organism to recognise its own constituent parts as self, which allows an immune response against its own cells & tissues. The immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen & attacks it. In other words, the body actually attacks its own cells.
