The purpose of the RTM system is not only to prevent hair loss and to ensure that lost ones returns. It is aimed to identify and resolve the sources that cause personal ringworm, and ultimately to create a permanent state of well-being.
Let’s glance shortly at Alopecia Disease……..
- What is Ringworm (Alopecia Areata) Disease?
Ringworm disease, whose medical name is Alopecia Disease, is a situation where the hair or feathers in the body are losing in a short time and quickly. It can be seen in hair, beard, eyebrows, eyelashes or other hairy areas of the body. Spill areas are typically round or oval openings with clear boundaries.
- What Causes Ringworm (Alopecia Areata)?
Although the exact cause has not been determined, it is thought to be caused by problems with the immune system. In autoimmune diseases, the body’s immune system perceives its own cells as foreign cells and tries to destroy them. In ringworm disease, it attacks hair cells and causes hair loss.
When there is a case of ringworm in the family, it is thought to be caused by genetic factors, since the rate of contracting the same disease is high. It has been stated that the most important precipitating cause for the onset of ringworm is stress.
- What are the Symptoms of Ringworm?
Sometimes, a paresthesia may occur on the scalp in the early stages of ringworm. The most obvious symptom is the characteristic, smooth-lined, round or oval shedding areas. The skin in the area where the hairs are shed is shiny and healthy, and there are no symptoms of infection, redness or dandruff.
In ringworm disease, which usually starts on the scalp, shedding is mostly seen only in certain areas. In some cases all hair (Alopecia Totalis) and in some cases all body hair (Alopecia Universalis) can be lost.
- What are the accompanying diseases of ringworm?
Along with ringworm disease, diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, hay rum, allergic asthma, thyroid disease, Addison’s, vitiligo, and lupus can be encountered.
- Who Gets Ringworm Disease?
Ringworm occurs predominantly in children and young men in teenagers. It has been reported that an average of 75 out of 100 patients is under the age of 40. The disease can be seen more frequently in those who are exposed to psychosomatic causes such as stress and sadness. It is more common in people who have one or more of other autoimmune diseases such as diabetes and Hashimoto’s. According to studies, those with a family history of ringworm are more likely to have the same disease associated with genetic factors.
- How is Ringworm Diagnosed?
Although the symptoms of ringworm are quite typical, a dermatologist should be consulted for diagnosis. First of all, the findings are examined and the degree of hair loss is checked. The diagnosis can be confirmed by examining a few hair samples under a microscope. If necessary, a piece is taken and pathological examination is performed.
Approach to Alopecia Disease in the RTM System
Approach to the Cause of Alopecia Disease in the RTM System
Our body is in a constant balance against internal and external factors. With this balance, life continues by progressing. Diseases occur when a disruption or problem occurs in the balance process. We can see diseases as a new balance or new adjustments created in the body for the continuation of life against internal and external negative conditions.
In the RTM System, there is a source model called the Disease Triad, which causes new adjustments in the body to come into play. This tripartite structure, which includes contamination in the body, system disorders and code changes in DNA (Epigenetics), functions in Alopecia as follows;
– Contamination in the body,
Our skin, which is also a detox organ, is the place where the most toxin excretion occures in the body. If it can not excrete properly, toxic accumulations occur. When these accumulated toxins exceed the amount that can be tolerated by special units in the skin, such as hair follicles, capillary circulation is impaired in these areas. This causes disruption of cellular activities in many structures of the skin, especially in the hair follicles. This initiates the inflammatory process in this region. The inflammatory process actually begins as a type of immune system activity. The main purpose of this activity is to remove toxins from the problematic areas of the skin. If the toxins cannot be removed properly, the circulation and cellular cycles in the relevant areas of the skin begin to deteriorate in time.
– Deterioration or imbalance in systems,
Personal characteristics such as genetic structure or hormonal processes determine the body’s response to internal and external adversities and its adaptation processes. Deterioration in the detox processes of the skin and contamination at the cellular level over time will cause confusion in the activities of the immune system towards these regions. This bewilderment or imbalance manifests itself as the immune system’s elimination of hair follicles in problem areas on the skin.
– Epigenetic variation in DNA
Contamination in the body, disruptions in the circulatory system and immune system make a code change in DNA, and as a result of this change, a new state of balance is created in the body. This state of balance provides the formation of new settings in the form of cellular cycles and changing of tissue architecture in order to prevent greater damage to the skin in problem areas.
Treatment of Alopecia Disease in the RTM System
In the RTM System, the disease process is actually new set points necessary for the continuation of life. During the treatment, the aim is not only to prevent the hair loss in the body but also to solve the disease triad, which is the source of the problem, with the TREATMENT TRIAD.
With the Treatment Triad, it is aimed to initiate the detox process in order to return to the normal state of balance in the body, to resolve the inflammation that occurs due to the increase in regional toxic load and the degeneration process that occurs as a result. Thanks to the detox in the body, it is aimed to be arranged the microcirculation in the region, to withdraw the inflammation and degeneration processes, and thus to ensure the normal cellular cycle. The main purpose is to make away with the imbalance in the systems, to open the blockages in the circulatory processes, and to ensure the flow and to normalize the immune responses. Ultimately, it is aimed to return the epigenetic changes in DNA to the primary set points by providing the body’s detox activities and regulating the deteriorated systems. Another important point here is that the process is carried out by taking into account the individual differences.
The main part of the treatment triad is RTM Phytotherapy. The phytotherapy protocol is determined by evaluating the detailed anamnesis, laboratory and imaging findings of the individual, and measurements performing specific to RTM clinics. With the RTM Phytotherapy protocol, the disease trait, which forms the source part, is withdrawn and treatment is applied. It is aimed to normalize the epigenetic changes in DNA, which determine the new tuning constants, by informing the body with the seed parts of the plants. In order for the body to adapt to the normalization of this information, the treatment triad is activated by using the leafy parts of the plants, accelerating the detox activities in the body and regulating the systems. When the disease triad is withdrawn, it is aimed that the body will by itself return to the norm form.
Also in Alopecia; with blood letting and regional ozone injections, it is aimed to accelerate regional detox activities and qualify for microcirculation, and with acupuncture and fascia modulation, it is aimed to open the blockages in the energy meridians and to remove the fascia blockages.
In order to accelerate the treatment process, other traditional medicine methods such as Manual therapy, Magnetic field, Laser, USG ESWT treatment can also be planned according to the needs of the patient.
Frequently Asked Questions
o Is Garlic Harmful to Hair Roots?
Garlic is not beneficial for all types of hair loss. In some cases, it can even irritate the scalp and cause wounds.
o How long does ringworm heal?
The main aim in the treatment of ringworm is to reduce the severity of the shedding in a wider area. Complete recovery differs from person to person. Treatment usually takes a shorter time in young people and children who have only stress-induced ringworm, whose metabolism is fast and whose immune system is strong. Recovery can be expected in an average of 6 months in young people and children.
o Which vitamin deficiency causes ringworm?
Inadequate and deficient nutrition, unhealthy diets pave the way for ringworm formation. The deficiencies of minerals and vitamins such as folic acid, biotin, iron, zinc, vitamin D, B12 are also effective in the formation of ringworm.
Is Ringworm a contagious disease?
Ringworm can not be transmitted from one person to another. It does not spread in the same body by jumping from one place to another, it is not contagious.
o Does hair grow back in the area with ringworm?
When the hair follicle is prevented from being permanently damaged by timely and appropriate treatment, the hair can regrow.
o Does in areas with ringworm area itch?
In areas with ringworm, symptoms such as itching do not usually appear.
o What causes ringworm in women?
Ringworm is a disease that is more common in men. However, hair loss in women can mostly be seen due to genetic factors, iron deficiency or autoimmune diseases.
o What is Beard ringworm?
Beard ringworm disease, whose medical name is Alopecia Barbae, is the form of ringworm disease in the bearded area in men.
o Is Ringworm a contagious disease?
Ringworm disease is not contagious. “Hair loss due to fungus”, which is highly contagious and rare, is sometimes confused with ringworm. However, at the beginning of the shedding from the fungus, there is an inflamed discharge in the hair follicles. In ringworm, such a situation does not occur.
o Is ringworm a psychological disease?
Psychological factors such as intense stress and depression can be provocative factor of hair loss.
o Is centaury oil good for ringworm?
Centaury oil is a natural oil obtained from yellow centaury plant and thought to be beneficial for existing hair. However, there is no scientific evidence that it is an adequate treatment tool in the treatment of ringworm. Natural oils can sometimes cause allergic reactions on the scalp, depending on the individual.
o Does ringworm occur on the body?
Ringworm, which is mostly seen in the head and beard area, can be seen in the hairy areas of the whole body.
