I also think that since this is an autoimmune disease it is better to live with it not change it. Good food, healthy lifestyle ,meditation and de-stressing activities will help .
I lost all my hair in my twenties(I'm now 56 ),got it back at 30 due to a combination of Ayurvedic treatment and just old-fashioned grace of God and parents' blessings. However, the good times are slowly ebbing as there are huge patches all over and postmenopausal period is not conducive for hair growth. Honestly I think that maybe a hair transplant is the only effective solution.
Since it is only on appearance that it is an issue and not medically we should just get on with life enjoy it to the fullest possible!!
