A lot of people seem to think that God brings sickness upon people or He uses it as a punishment if you do something wrong but this is not the case. God LOVES us soooo much, He wants us to be healthy and well, and He wants to have a relationship with us and fellowship with us! it is satan who brings sickness upon people because his goal is to steal, kill and destroy (JOHN 10:10).The devil wants to take us out and he uses anything he can to do so including sickness. Alopecia and every other diseases is NOT from God. A lot of people think 'oh well, I guess God just wants me to be sick( or bald), i guess this is how its going to be'...NO! God wants you to have your health, He wants you to have your hair back. It takes faith,and just letting the word of God really sink into your spirit, and just believe that what the Lord says about healing is for you today because God still heals even in this day and age. i just want to give you all a few scriptures to just read everyday. Really let it sink into you until you whole heartedly believe it.

Isaiah 53:4
1 peter 2:24
Exodus 15:26
faith for healing- Hebrews 11;1

Also here is a testimony of a woman healed from hair loss. I will also put up other testimonies of people getting healed from diseases that doctors couldnt even figure out.

I am a very spiritual woman and I do believe in scripture and that God wants us healthy and well. Although I can not agree that just prayer, reflecting on scripture and letting the word of God in will heal Alopecia. my daughter has struggled with Total Alopecia for 13 years and we have prayed every day....we know in our heart of hearts that we could not have more faith in The Lord or more love for God. I don't believe that if we just love God more he will heal my daughter. I believe this Alopecia has been a Gift of some type that is part of his plan for her. We need to accept answered prayers even when the answers aren't what we want. My daughter is NOT sick. She is very healthy! She just looks differs than others.... God knows why, part of FAITH is trusting His reasons.
I hope I have not offended anyone with my opinions, this is just how I have dealt with our journey through Alopecia.....

Hello all, I'm alopeciamom's daughter. I just have to say that I dont understand the premise of this post. See, We're not sick. Our bodies are actually protecting us so much to the point where it attacks our hair. If God had anything to do with this, he's actually protecting us! I know I dont get sick as often as most people, so we actually get to live our lives more fully. But back to the God thing. You think that Satan is making us bald because our faith isnt strong enough? thats wrong, point blank. My mom was told I wasnt going to be born, I survived an abusive father amongst so many more traumatic events in my life. My faith is stronger than most people because thats how i grew up and thats what I needed to do for survival. God has litrally saved my life on multiple occasions, and you're telling me (and the world) that I'm balc because my faith isnt strong enough? I went to a catholic school and was bullied every single day, I'm overcoming my struggles with cutting and self harm, I'm even a parental figure for my baby sister. I went to Hell and back and, guess what? I'm still bald!! Plus, how could Satan make such a beautiful disorder? WHen I look on this site, all i can see is beauty and strength in every woman and man on here. God made this to show the word that true beauty comes from within, that strength happens regardless, God made us to break the mold and show society just how awesome we are. God made us natural born survivors, he's not punishing us or anything like that. In all Honesty, youre letting Satan win by giving him as much credit as you are in this post.My mom was worried about offending people, I'm not. If i offended you, log off and go to sleep. In my opinion, if you are afraid of being offended then you shouldnt be posting things on the internet. Actually, I was offended by reading your post. I hvae a wonderful support system, but that doesnt mean that there have been times where ive been completely on my own, I grew into my strength and with that came love for myself, and isnt God love? God loved me so much he blessed me with this autoimmune disorder that made me so unique and so strong, that I'm so thankful for my hair loss. I understand youre under the impression that youre helping people with this post, I'm just explaining how your faith has nothing to do with it. Take it from a Catholic school alumni. God bless.

I have a another view to God healing my alopecia. It is over 20 years for me now and like others I too prayed for healing.

The difference is that I do believe that I was healed. Only it was not with a full set of hair, it was ability to live my life fully in spite of my alopecia. Still every once in a while someone will tell me that they are praying for my hair to return. My response is that I am already healed. He has allowed me to get to a place that whether I grow backs my hair or not, I will be ok. He renewed my mind.

Romans 12:2 - “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Psalm 139:13-14 – “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

In addition, there are many examples in the bible in which people did have to struggle, the Apostle Paul in fact even Jesus himself:

2 Corinthians 12:8-10 (Paul) - Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

Luke 22:42: (Jesus) - "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."

I imagine that God would rather us go through stuff and grow then just take all struggles away from us.

It reminds me of an incident yesterday. I was with my grandson at a Jungle Java, which is a play area where kids can climb and have fun. He is only 2 ½ and he still small and struggles with climbing. When he was younger I would climb up with him and boost him up when needed. But lately, I have been holding back some, so that he find his way. I figure if I keep climbing up with him, he will never develop the skills needed. I do know that when he struggles through a few things and figures it out, he exclaims with excitement “I did it, I did it!”. My purpose is to allow him to be creative and figure things out.

I do think that God has the same instincts and sometimes he will allow us to struggle to develop something in us.

I agree. Btu in the same respect, I think the belief that Satan is making us lose hair because we don't have strong enough faith is heinous
