I am suffering from skin problem. Too much pimples on my face. What should i do to cure?
Pimples is the common health problem at teenage. To check the pimples besides medicines you should look after your foods and lifestyle. Avoid all sort of junk foods fast foods, oily fried foods, chocolates, aerated drinks. Add more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Take your meals in time. Drink plenty of water minimum 3 to 4 liters in a day. Do not sleep late at night, by 11 pm you should go to bed. Daily physical activities of exercise, gym should be practiced. Try to avoid all sorts erotic things that keep you excite and increases the androgen hormone because high androgen level is the cause of acne. There are some homeopathic medicines you can try to cure this. Nat mur-1M - 3 drops weekly once, Thuja-1M - 3 drops weekly once, kali brom -30 - 3 drops 2 times daily. Update after 1 month. Thank you.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice Avoid Pitta-aggravating foods like spicy, heavy, and oily foods, as well as tea and coffee. Avoid refined foods, refined sugar, junk food, and alcoholic and carbonated drinks. Increase intake of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and vegetable juice prepared from lettuce, carrot, capsicum, and alfalfa. Avoid using chemical products on the hair. Try herbal oils and shampoos instead. Home Remedies Mix powdered Indian gooseberry (amla) and sesame seeds in equal amounts. Take 1 teaspoon twice a day with water. If you want more better treatment consult me.

I am suffering from consistent hair loss for the past few years. During the day, wherever I go, I see my hair strands lying around. If I apply oil or wash my hair, the scene is disastrous. I used to have long, shiny, bouncy and very smooth hair. I have hypothyroidism but that is under control as I am under regular medication. My hair started greying when I was around 17 year old and since the last 6 years, the greying has accelerated. I touch-up the roots every month and occasionally straighten my hair using a hair straightener, but I make sure not to touch the roots. My hair has become brittle, not so much dry though, but it also tends to get tangled a lot lately. Please suggest on how to take care of my hair and how to proceed with treatment, if required.

Hello lybrate-user I understand your concern and from the information you have provided I can see three causes straight ahead 1. Hypothyroidism - it does affect even if levels r normal because eltroxin is keeping them normal and not naturally 2. Hair coloring 3 straightening - even though you avoid the roots, the hair loses moisture and becomes brittle. Also I need to know if you oil your Hair or not, if not please oil them 2 / week 1 hour before shampoo or overnight. Get your HB levels done to rule out anemia. Also start homeopathic treatment to control the fall and improve health in general. Be gentle with your Hair and avoid vigorous massage or rubbing of towel on Wet hair. Please feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns.

Dear Lybrate user, you can take ratino-A cream. It will reduce scars and increase your fairness. Precautions- use in very less quantity. Excess use can harm your skin. Use only in night. If you will go in sun light after applying this cream. Your skin will be more dark.

Psoriasis And Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Psoriasis And Homeopathy

The cause for this irksome skin disease that presents as thick red silvery scaled patches on the skin is still being researched. The sad part is that as yet,there is no one single treatment, and mostly all of them give only  temporary relief.

DOES HOMEOPATHY REALLY WORK FOR PSORIASIS?
.CERTAINLY YES.

BUT HOW? WAIT.We will come to the answer of this question.Before that, first lets get to know more about this disease itself so that we can explain you how the treatments work.

Symptoms:

Location:

Anywhere in the body, most commonly legs, arms , knees, elbows, trunk, scalp

Underarm region, below breasts, buttocks,genitals

Look: dicoloured, silvery scaly lesions that vary in size from minute papules covering a large area

Dry, do not get infected

Some studies have shown that people with psoriasis -- especially severe psoriasis -- may be more likely to develop other conditions like:

 

  • Diabetes. Researchers aren't sure what the connection between psoriasis and diabetes is. However, other health conditions also linked to psoriasis -- high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity -- also put someone at risk for diabetes.
  • Heart disease. Medical experts say the inflammation caused by psoriasis could be related to the artery damage that leads to atherosclerosis (clogged blood vessels) and other heart problems.
  • Cancer. Some treatments for psoriasis, including PUVA light therapy and certain medications, can raise the risk of specific cancers.
  • Someone with psoriasis also has a greater chance of having depression, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Causes:

Abnormal growth of the skin that results in red, patchy appearance.Immune system cud be responsible for this because it causes a wrong trigger resulting in abnormal growth.Normal skin cells take 28-30 days to mature and fall off the surface.Psoriatic skin cells however take only 4-5 days to mature and move to the surface of the skin where they pile off instead of falling off.

 

  • There is a genetic element also, this disease runs in families of 30% of patients.
  • External factors/agg factors:infections, stress, climatic conditions like colds.
  • Injuries to skin involving burns, cuts , rashes.
  • Medications like beta blockers, lithium, antimalarial drugs, nsaid’s like brufen

Treatment:

  •  Most of the present day meds only attempt to treat the symptoms, and not the disease.
  • Psoriasis is due to hyperactive immune system. The dual function of the intestinal wall of absorption and barrier to unwanted antigens or chemicals is compromised that results in leakage of toxins into the system. The immune system then gets activated to produce antibodies and t cells leading to inflammation.
  • This process also puts added burden on liver and kidneys. The resulting hyperactive immune system leads to a build up of cells on the skin causing the itchy psoriatic symptoms.
  • The present medicines can work a bit but are harmful in the long run. The medicines should target correcting the intestinal leak that occurs and the rest will take care of itself.

Patients with psoriasis can take the following steps to try to prevent these other health problems.

  • Go for annual checkups and get regular tests as recommended. These exams can catch problems early on when they're easier to treat.

  • Know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers. If they are high, find out what to do to lower 

  • them. Treating high blood pressure and cholesterol can help keep his heart and arteries healthy.

  • Take a healthy approach to life -- including not drinking too much alcohol, not smoking, getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. A healthy lifestyle can help lower his risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

  • Ask the doctor about  cancer risks and what symptoms to watch for.

  • Ease stress. Because having psoriasis is stressful, it seems unfair that stress can trigger a flare-up. Finding ways to avoid or relieve stress part is an important part of your treatment plan.

    You need to make time every day to relax, even if it's just a half-hour of listening to soothing music. Try these healthy approaches, too:

  • Relaxation exercises, such as guided imagery or breathing exercises

  • Meditation

  • Yoga or tai chi

  • Daily exercise

 

Remember, the disease isn't who you are.There is much more to you than the fact that you have psoriasis.You should try to focus on your strengths and talents to help build your self-esteem.

 

  • While psoriasis flare-ups are often unpredictable, certain things can trigger symptoms. Managing your triggers can lead to fewer flare-ups and milder flare-ups when they do happen.
  • You should avoid using alcohol or herbal remedies to help deal with stress. Drinking alcohol may seem relaxing, but it can lead to health problems.
  • If the stress in your life feels overwhelming, talking to a therapist or trained counselor can make it easier to get through difficult times.
  • Warm up. Cold weather is hard on most people's skin, leaving it itchy, dry, and cracked. That's true for people with psoriasis, too. To keep itching and tenderness in check, you should use moisturizers more often during winter months and apply a thick coating to psoriasis patches. After bathing, pat -- don't rub -- skin dry. Apply moisturizer while skin is still damp.
  • Watch what you eat. Although many people say diet affects their psoriasis, no research has shown a connection. Some experts, however, think it's possible people may have specific food triggers. The best advice is to eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, and limited fats and sugars. If you notice that your  symptoms flare when you eat a specific food, stop eating it for a while and watch what happens to your psoriasis. At the next appointment, you should tell this to your doctor.

Diet control:

 Satvik diet  is recommended.What is meant by this?To clarify,

One is advised not to have tea, coffee, aerated drinks etc, and restrict dairy foods.Sprouted n boiled vegetables are preferred.

Compress:

  • Thick n green outer leaves of cabbage as a compress
  • Drinking buttermilk in large quantities n application of curd/buttermilk to affected area
  • Certain oils such as olive oil and oil of avocado (kulu naspati) on affected parts and oil extracted from outer shells of cashewnuts
  • Use of mud packs

 

Baths:

  • Avoid soap
  • Application of sea water externally once a day

Homeopathy treatment

  • Effective in nearly 75%of cases.
  • The approach is to strike at the root cause n create a condition such that the skin becomes healthy n the excessive exfoliation is not allowed to take place.
  • A very minute evaluation is made of the facts that includes family history,trigering factors, itching, emotional aspects,location and seriousness of the complaint.
  • One advantage of homeopathic medicines is that they are safe and not detrimental to the body on prolonged use whereas steroids used in allopathy are definitely not advisable in the long run.
  • However as the disease is difficult to tackle, people often get fed up and leave midway.Patients who have taken homeopathy  are required  caution that the journey is tedious and long, but persistence is the keyword and cure may take upto 2-3 yrs and more. Also, the disease has it own course of exarcebations and remissions so one has be aware and cautious of the above points and accordingly do the lifestyle measures and medications.

Conclusions:

  • If we look at the treatment options available various allopathic  formulations used till date offer only symptomatic treatment.Even the latest medicines seems to offer relief for months than offer a complete cure.
  • Regular exercise, balanced diet, walk in the sun are very beneficial.While the goal of complete cure may not be achieved or possible, however , a treatment that offers buildup of a better immunity with time is really advisable and hence the popularity of homeopathy which hence eradicates the troublesome symptoms and the suffering and rewards the patient with a better life.
  •  Psoriasis can be managed with the right treatment and good self-care, and now add homeopathy to it!
