There is no standard treatment for alopecia universalis. Many treatments have been explored, including immunomodulatory agents 

Alopecia Universalis may be acute and short-lived or remain permanently. Regrowth is always a possibility, even for those with 100% hair loss over many years. However, it is not possible to predict when regrowth will occur

To stop falling of hairs and nails, apart from therapeutic treatment you also can consider healthy, nutricious food intake. Do not experiment with different hair oils and shampoos. Use only which is suotable to you.....
For regrowth it may happen by its own many a times. Otherwise usually no medicine has good success rate, though many medicines are recommended.
