Hair loss in Ayurveda is known as "Khalitya". Alopecia areata is considered "Indralupata" in Ayurveda texts. In Indralupata, there is usually a quick hair fall in a shorter duration with patch formation. Still, in Khalitya, hair loss is gradual and generalized over the head and scalp. Ayurveda says hair is formed from bone tissue. Thus any disturbance in metabolism in bone tissue can affect hair health. So Ayurvedic treatment approach strengthens the bone tissues and balances the imbalanced doshas involved in hair loss.

Hair Loss Ayurvedic Treatment and Regrowth


Causes of Hair Loss in Ayurveda Science 


Out of the three doshas present in the body, an excess of Pitta dosha is believed responsible for hair loss. Hair follicles have a sub-type of pitta called Brajaka pitta. When it gets imbalanced with the further associations of Vata dosha, it causes excessive hair fall. Further increased Kapha dosha mixes with blood tissue to block the hair follicle channels. Hair follicles start to degenerate, and when their nutrients flow completely gets blocked to the extent that there is no new growth of hair follicles and thus leads to baldness. Therefore, anything that increases this pitta dosha in the body affects hair health. Hot weather, intake of excessive sour, salty, fried, acidic and excessively spicy food; too much consumption of coffee, tea and alcohol, a non-vegetarian diet rich in red meat and smoking are some of the factors that lead to increased pitta and hence alopecia as per Ayurveda.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

    Dora Tsividis

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .
