I have hair fall for last 10 years and I am very much worried about it. How can I resolve it.

I have hair fall for last 10 years and I am very much worried about it. How can I resolve it.
Hi. It's normal to lose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! medication: take homoeopathic medicines - schwabe's wiesbaden 200 & alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use schwabe's arnica shampoo and hair growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use bakson's arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Beside this, you can take one tablet of multivitamin folli hair once daily for 1 month. (if the area has gone totally smooth and shiny, then you need to go an option of hair transplant!)

Hello, first of all you should start taking a healthy and balanced diet.

Use this home remedy also to prevent hair loss:- *Triphala is the boon for dead cells of the scalp; it works to recover all the problem related to damaged and graying of hair. Take a teaspoon of triphala powder with water before sleeping. You will get rid from white hair as well as hair fall. *Onion is also an effective home treatment for hair loss and premature graying. The juice of onion helps in preventing premature graying, hair loss and baldness. Apply or massage the onion juice on you scalp to get rid from gray hair. You can use it every night before go to bed and leave overnight. It is also helps to hair growth.

Myths and facts about acne

BHMS
Homeopath,
Myths and facts about acne

Myth: Washing more helps get rid of acne.

Fact:
Facial acne is not caused by dirt. The common misbelief is that pores are blocked from the top down due to the dirt, in actual fact pores are blocked from the inside out. Instead of preventing acne, washing your face too much may irritate the pores and cause them to become clogged as well as dry this skin. Dry skin will cause the sebaceous glands to go into overdrive and produce too much sebum oil which will block your pores. The best thing to do is only wash twice a day.

Myth: Acne is caused by stress.

Fact:
It is true that stress may affect hormone levels and therefore cause acne. However, a good acne treatment system will easily overcome any effect stress may have on your acne. Some psychiatric medicines do list acne as a side effect, but stress in itself is unlikely to have a serious impact.

Myth: Sex and masturbation cause acne.

Fact:
This is an idea dating back to the 17th century which was put about to try and dissuade young people from having sex before marriage. There is no scientific evidence to support it. It is true that high levels of androgens (male sex hormones) can be related to severe cases of acne but hormone levels are not affected by masturbation and sex.

Myth: The sun helps clear up acne.

Fact:
It is true that 10 - 20 minutes a day of the sun could help people with acne, especially back acne or acne on other parts of the body. However, over exposure to the sun will lead to skin damage and irritate the skin. This irritation can actually result in more acne over the weeks that follow over exposure to the sun as the skin heals itself. As with over washing your skin, the sun will also dry out your skin which will result in an excess of sebum oil being produced and blocking your pores.

Myth: Your diet can cause acne

Fact:
Here more research is needed. In short acne is caused by hormone levels rather than what you eat. However, it is known that in some societies, in stark contrast to modern society, there is absolutely no acne. This raises the question of whether it is the indigenous people's diet which contributes to their clear skin or some other factor. It may be possible to prevent acne through dietary means in the future, but it will be very hard to achieve.

Myth: Pimples will go away faster if you pop them.

Fact:
Popping a pimple will make it temporarily less noticeable; however, it means that the zit will stay around for longer. By popping a pimple you are forcing bacteria from the zit further into the skin which ultimately makes it even more inflamed. Furthermore, popping a pimple can cause acne scars to form which could last for months or worse still scars in the form of dents and pits which can last forever.

Dear, These are the causes of acne: • excessive sebum production (sebum is oily secretion from the gland). • Due to hormonal imbalance. These are the methods & instructions to avoid acne: • To control the sebum secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. * Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. * Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin.

Hi lybrate-user, Sleep deprivation may be one of the reasons for skin dullness. But there are other reasons too like sun-exposure, nutritional deficiencies, stress,environmental factors etc. For improving tone and texture of face and for glowing facial skin, I recommend skin lightening creams, Chemical peels and Microdermabrasion therapy. You will need a skin lightening cream and good sunscreen initially. I can prescribe you that. If satisfactory results are not achieved, you can opt for advanced treatments like peels and dermaroller therapy provide lasting effects
