BALDNESS OR ALOPECIA ARETA
ALOPECIA ARETA is an auto- immune disease. This may be the first time you have heard that. Some Physicians in Germany discovered that baldness is not just a result of excessive testosterone and hormonal problems in the body. Baldness is actually a disease that results from the body attacking itself. The body actually sees the hair follicles as something growing too fast, and sees this as excessive growth, as something pathological. So it sends its white blood cells, leukocytes, to attack the hair follicles which it considers a foreign invader, and that is why the hair follicles die. The hair follicles are so damaged by the attack of the leukocytes that the hair follicle will let go of its strands and hair falls out. Normally we lose about 80 strands a day. When our hair follicles are damaged, we lose a lot more than 80 hairs, and more fall out than grow in, so eventually you become bald.
This means total hair loss from the whole body. Patients loose hair from under the arms, eyebrows, eyelashes, pubic region, legs, arms, just about from everywhere it is supposed to be growing.
When the thymus extract is put on the scalp, it aids in the growth of hair wherever it is supposed to be growing on the body. It works exceedingly well for this problem in particular.

Toxic metals or heavy metal poisoning is definitely a cause of hair loss. Pesticides and herbicides can cause hair loss. Hair fall out occurs as a result of radiation exposure. In fact if you use a microwave oven you are exposed to radiation.
