In brief: No evidence

Alopecia areata can heal without any treatment.
It is is caused by a killer immune cell (either natural killer or t cell) attack on the hair follicle. One of the genes that increases risk of attack is expressed abnormally in the hair follicle cells and causes homing of the natural killers to the hair follicle to initiate attack. Dietary factors could be involved in turning this gene on.
