Baldness is often due to hereditary factors and as such is difficult to treat. Where hair loss is caused by illness or chemotherapy, or where there is no history of baldness in the family, it can sometimes be helped by Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.

The Chinese Medicine theory for baldness is that hair is nourished by the blood (which is dominated by the liver) and by the essence of the kidney. Liver and kidney deficiencies are considered the likely causes of baldness in Chinese Medicine, so treatment will involve toning both organs.
