A young boy aged 10 years entered my clinic with smiling face.
He was fair and thin. I looked at his scalp that had almost lost
his hair all over. I understood that his complaint did not deter
him with lower spirit. He narrated his complaints jokingly.
‘I have lost my hair after a hair cut 6 months back; The
hair initially fell down in patches and gradually all over. I
watched his eyebrow that was without hair. I came to know that
the boy is very intelligent; loves sports and likes to travel;
he is very adjustable; and Craves sweets; He had chicken pox when
he was six years old. His paternal mother had died of cancer of
uterus and his paternal uncle died of bone cancer. His father
is hypertensive patient and mother is a diabetic.
His First consultation was on the twenty fifth day of December
2003. Acid Flour 200 was my prescription and increased the potency
to 1M for the further follow-ups. the prescription was made based
on the strong family history, and the syphilitic tendency. Hair
started growing within a month to every ones surprise. Few doses
of Leuticum 1M was given to accelerate the action. After six months,
he entered my room with smiling face, with the symbol of additional
beauty, along with his father.He said, “Now I had hair Cut
again” Please refer the photographs that were taken before
and after treatment at the back wrapper.
