Book review by Dr Mansoor Ali KR

Hair problems answered with Homoeopathy is a complete handbook of trichology and homoeopathy by Dr Shivakumar BHMS, MD (Hom). Which is the first reliable and authentic book in homoeopathy that covers the major hair disorders with general and homoeopathic management.

Currently trichology is a fast developing but expensive field, but the fact is that majority of the hair disorders can be easily and permanently managed with homoeopathy and there is no recurring expenditure.

This book covers anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of hair, investigations, diagnosis of different types of alopecia and effective management of dandruff, premature greyness, hirsutism, and evaluation of hair fall. There are interesting sections like, cosmetic tips, latest developments in the field of trichology, syndromes that include hair abnormalities, interpretation of findings in alopecia and differential diagnosis of alopecia by investigations.

He also incorporated findings of “A study on alopecia aerata and its Homoeopathic management” which was conducted  at Govt. Homoeopathic Medical College Calicut during his postgraduation.
