This is caused by, or associated with the development of an immune response to normal body tissues in which our white blood cells form antibodies which attack our tissue. A possible defect may alter a person’s sensitivity and reactions to antibodies so that certain antibodies attack the hair follicles . The auto immune system does not recognise various components of its own body as self and attacks it as it would bacteria or any other foreign body.. e.g. include the following:
* ALOPECIA AREATA. * VITILIGO. *PSEUDOPELADE. FOLLICULITIS DECALVINS. *SCLERODERMA. * LICHEN PLANUS. * LUPUS. *L,ERETHEMATOSIS.
Your immune system is constantly under attack by foreign invaders,(bacteria etc ). One of their effects is the production of harmful free radicals. These are incomplete oxygen molecules with an imbalanced electrical charge. In an attempt to restore the balance they attack cells, resulting in an impairment of function. Too many free radicals can weaken the immune system and pave the way for infection.
SOURCES OF FREE RADICALS
*Cigarette smoke * Sunlight * Exhaust fumes * Coffee *Chocolate, Tea. * Intense exercise *Pollution, *Fried, burnt, smoked or barbecued food.* Pesticides, *Emissions from printers Photocopiers, *Air conditioning units.
ANTIOXIDANTS, mop up Free Radicals, and boost the immune system. Sources include the following .

If you take vitamin C supplements and are on the pill, they should be taken at the opposite end of the day from the contraceptive pill as 500 mg or more can increase the circulating oestrogen’s and turn a low dose pill into a high dose pill. The pill has a reducing effect on zinc. Zinc is absorbed in the presence of vitamin B6.
