It was January 2009 when my hair dresser discovered three bald patches on my scalp. What was supposed to be a fun and relaxing day at the hari sal on, quickly turned into a nightmare, and was the worst day of my life. Once I was learned what Alopecia Areata was, I came to the harsh realization of exactly what, I would be dealing with.
In February 2009, I went to my dermatologist to inquire about treatment options. She suggested I try corticosteroid injections, as well as various topical creams, and a shampoo. Soon after that appointment,I began my steroid injection treatments.
In March 2009, I decided to do some of my own research on the internet. I found little hope in reading the horror stories of desperate people like me, AA support groups, and many wig advertisements. I only came across one website which had a generally positive out come for curing Alopecia Areata, and that was Dr. Rohit's Ayurvedic Therapy. I gave it some thought, but decided these success stories were too good to be true, so I continued with my steroid injection treatments.
I began the corticosteroid injections in February 2009 with the three bald patches. After six months of visiting my dermatologist, I could not tell you how many injections I received, or ointments/creams i tried ; (Clobex, Desonate gel, and Luxig foma to name a few ). After all of these treatments, I had no success in growing my hair back, and actually ended up with now nine bald patches. I also experienced negative side effects from these treatments. My scalp was so tender and sensitive ; I could barely brush my hair. Not to mention, the psychological effects like despair, and hopelessness. Every time I left the dermatologist, I cried the whole way home.
After seeing those treatments were having no positive effect at all, my dermatologist had two last suggestions to try ; oral corticosteroids and Contact Sensitization Therapy. I refused both of them and decided the only option left for me was Dr. Rohit's ' too good to be true treatment . When I found out Dr. Rohit was visiting the U.S., without hesitation, I decided to take the opportunity to meet him. I flew to Chicago immediately.
After he spent an hour and a half with me (more time than my dermatologist spent with me in six months combined ), I knew this was the real deal Doctor of Alopecia Areata who authentically cared about his patients. He reassured me that everything would be fine. The only thing I had to do was follow his treatment regimen, along with trying not to stress too much.
In August 2009, I began my two year Ayurvedic Therapy. I began seeing results in the fourth of treatment; my patches began to fill in. When I saw this happening, I almost couldn't believe my eyes; Oh my god this is really working ...how is this possible ? How come that modern medical field doesn`t know about this?
Well, after 2 year of using the treatment, had recovered 95% of my hari. Dr.Rohit is not only a great doctor, but a very beautiful human being. In these two years he was with me every step of the way. I trust him unconditionally, and l feel truly blessed to have found him.
