A Review on Ayurvedic Management of Khalityavyadhi
Abstract: Khalitya or Alopecia is a physiological phenomenon if it occurs after the mid-forties, but is considered a disease if it arises earlier. Modern-day lifestyles, eating habits, pollutants, stress, decreased immunity, hormonal imbalance, faulty hair care, etc. have increased the incidence of premature greying and loss of hair. Different types of oils (chemical oils), shampoos, soaps and pharmaceutical promotions in the name of Saundarya Prasadhana for promoting hair growth actually make the condition worse. Ayurvedic management of Khalitya (Alopecia areata) by Virechana Karma(Purgation)and concurrent use of systemic medicines and Rasayan drugs shows that Virechana karma is extremely beneficial in the management of Khalitya (Alopecia areata) This study has been undertaken to find a more Ayurvedic promising remedy.
