Hair Loss and Chinese Medicine


Based on the theory of Traditional Chinese medicine, the main cause of hair loss is blood deficiency. Sufficient blood depends on the normal function of following organs: liver, spleen, lung, heart, and kidney. Liver stores and regulates the volume of circulating blood; Spleen transports and transforms the food, absorbs nutrients to nourish blood; Lung dominates the skin and hair; Heart controls the blood and vessels, houses the mind; Kidney stores essence, produces the marrow, and manufactures the blood; Kidney is essential for shinning the hair.

The deficiency of the kidney results in insufficiencies in the essence and the blood; the essence and blood deficiency can lead to lack of nutrient supply to the hair, and consequently causes hair loss. If the kidney qi fails, then the hair falls off.

Insufficiency of liver blood manifests symptoms like sudden patch of hair loss, smooth skin at the alopecia areata accompanied by complexion, dizziness, tinnitus, dry eyes, blurred vision, and women often have light menstrual flow or amenorrhea, pale tongue, and thin pulse. Treatment is to nourish both the liver and the blood. Stagnation in liver qi displays symptoms like hair loss, depression, chest pain or breast tenderness, and women have irregular menstruation, thin white tongue coating and tight pulse strings. Treatment is to soothe the liver and relieve depression.

Deficiency in heart qi and blood manifests symptoms like hair root suddenly falls off in round or oval flaky shape, and the affected area has bright skin, mild itching, no inflammation and no sensation on effected scalp skin; or all hair and eyebrows are stripped, accompanied by heart palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue and spontaneous sweating, pale complexion, and fatigue. Cure is to nourish the blood and calm the mind

Toxins such as chemicals, pollution, certain drugs, bad habits, etc. can accumulate in human body and subsequently cause hair loss. Many treatments for hair loss are not effective because the toxins in the body have not been removed.

Long term of stress leads to blood deficiency or blood stasis, thus resulting in blood heat. The excess or deficiency of blood heat generates wind; the wind and heat flow up to dry hair roots, then the hair will gradually fall off.

Balancing diet can nourish the qi and the blood, and improving functions of the five organs to prevent the hair loss.


"I was suffered from depression, on anti-depressants, adjusting to an under-active thyroid, all whilst unsuccessfully trying for a baby for two full years. I contacted Qiong Di and five months later I was pregnant with a beautiful little baby girl. Qiong Di not only helped us to get pregnant, but she also brought me a stronger sense of health and well-being in general. Thank you, thank you Qiong Di, and I wish all the best to your wonderful practice!"

"As I got older, I also found it more difficult each time to keep to the regimen of a diet. I decided that I needed to try something different, so I turned to acupuncture. Since then, I have lost nearly 35 pounds and I feel absolutely great! The weight loss was over 3 months during which time I did not experience that light-headed feeling or even the dreaded hunger pangs! The inches just melted away from my waist and I have gone from a size 40+ inch waist to a 34. This is all due to Qiong Di’s effective weight loss programme."


Mrs. B.P.

"I first noticed I had TMJ when I was 20 years old in 1997, and over the years the condition got worse causing me to have great pain and discomfort in my jaw muscles. I tried everything including a specially made TML gum shield, osteopath treatments, many kinds of pain killers, and even practiced special jaw exercises. Then, after just one session with Qiong Di I knew that I had found the solution to my problem. Since this time I have been living pain free! So I would highly recommend the TUNG-CHI TCH Centre to anyone who is looking for an alternative treatment."
