Alopecia Areata treated successfully with food allergy elimination and
Alvin Stein, MD
Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease which attacks the hair follicles in the body causing
patchy lesions of baldness to occur.
The condition can be localized to the scalp or elsewhere on the body. It often leads to round
patches of hair loss about the size of a quarter. Multiple patches can occur or the condition can
be extensive, and be generalized in which case it is considered alopecia areata totalis. It is
emotionally troubling to the patient.
As with all autoimmune conditions, toxic elements are most often responsible for the condition to
These toxic elements can be toxic heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, chemicals of
other natures, or the foods we eat to which we are allergic.
Determination of the toxic element is of utmost importance in reversing the disorder.
A complete history from the patient will often lead to types of toxic exposure or food allergies that
the patient may have.
Employing the technique of autonomic response testing (ART) exposures to the various toxins
can be diagnosed, and appropriate remedies can be determined and then employed to remove
the toxins from the body.
Appropriate food allergy testing, specifically IgG testing, can identify the delayed food allergies
that have a toxic effect on the body.
Neural therapy, the treatment of the autonomic nervous system and its dysfunctions, enables us
to be able to release interference fields that allow restoration of normal function of the autonomic
Neural therapy involves the use of local anesthetic injected into appropriate areas to reestablish
the normal function of the autonomic nervous system and eliminate interference fields.
Conventional treatment for Alopecia Areata involves the use of corticosteroids, topical ointments,
Minoxidil (Rogaine), Anthralin (Psoriatec), Sulfasalazine, topical sensitizers, oral Cyclosporine,
Photochemotherapy, and other alternative therapies with herbs and oils. None
