Hi lybrate-user. The exact cause of hair loss may not be fully understood, but it's usually related to one or more of the following factors: 1. Family history (heredity) 2. Hormonal changes 3. Medical conditions 4. Medications 5. Life style medication:- 1. Regukar oiling with sukesham oil, guduchi pharmacy helps a lot to reduce hairfall within 21 days. 2. Preferably use guduchi anti hairfall shampoo, blot you hair with towel n donot rub. 3. Apply hairmask using amla n bhringaraj powder mixed with buttermilk weekly once helps a lot. 4. Cap trichup, 1 cap twice a day after food for 1 month. Tips:- 1. Wash hair regularly with lukewarm to cold water to keep the scalp clean and healthy 2. Avoid combing hair when wet since it is prone to breakage at such time.

These conditions have to be treated by an oral care specialist. Some of the changes in lifestyle that you’d be asked to make would include: Brushing and flossing properly. At least twice a day or thrice. Gargling with a mouthwash or gargling with lukewarm water added with salt. To repeat twice a day. Quitting smoking or chewing tobacco Following a diet which have proper vitamins, minerals and other necessary nutrients Adopting method to reduce stress, for instance, yoga and meditation Going to the dentist for checkups and cleanups at regularly intervals.

Cocoa butter is famous for its anti-wrinkling and anti-aging properties. It helps in enhancing the blood circulation, which reduces stretch marks. Massage the affected area with cocoa butter at least two times a day. Repeat the process for two months and notice the reduced scars. Else, mix half cup of cocoa butter with one tablespoon of wheat germ oil, one teaspoon of tea kernel oil, two teaspoons of grated beeswax, and vitamin E oil. Heat the mix until the beeswax melts. Apply it on the stretch marks twice or thrice a day. The mixture can be stored in a sealed box in the refrigerator.------------------------------ . Physical Exercise One must regularly do physical exercises, like abdominal crunches, sit-ups, swimming, etc., which tone the underlying muscles and remove the ugly stretch marks. Here are some exercises, which are beneficial to remove stretch marks: • For Stretch Marks on Stomach : You are required to lie down flat on your back. Now, bend your knees keeping the feet flat on the floor. Keep your hands on the sides of your head. Now, lift your upper body somewhat off the floor, contracting your abs. • For Stretch Marks on Thighs : Sit straight on the chair. Now, put your hands down to your sides, holding the chair. Now, swing your legs in up and down motion. This will help to firm your thighs. • For Stretch Marks on Hips and Buttocks : Lie down flat on your back. Relax for a few minutes. Then, lift one leg creating a 90 degree angle. Lift it until you feel a pull on your buttocks. Try the same on the other leg. Slowly, increase your pace and strain on the hips, buttocks, and thighs. • For Stretch Marks on Bottom : You are required to lie down facing the floor. Put your arms on the side. Lift your right leg up and then down. Repeat the same with left leg. Raise your leg at least 3-6 inches off the floor. Note- For best results, practise 20 lifts for each exercise thrice a week.---------------------------------- Useful Tips • Consume protein, zinc and Vitamin C rich foods in abundance. Green salad, milk, fish, nuts and citrus fruits help a lot in diminishing stretch marks. • Do yoga and other physical exercises on the regular basis. • Pregnant women should not use creams and solutions, prepared from chemicals. Instead of fading away stretch marks, they may result in skin damaging rashes. • Don’t scratch the affected area. • Keep your skin moisturized.---------------------- HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE--------------------- SILICEA 6X ( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 4 tab 3 times daily for 3 months------------- COCOA BUTTER CREAM ( BAKSON)

Allergies in general & Homeopathy:

Allergy is the term we can use for anything which reacts adversely causing various types of symptoms which are not common. The things which cause allergy are called as Allergens. Those may be in the form of Food[milk, chocolates, sea food, cold items like ice creams, citrus. Like lemonades,ghee made, few nuts, shells,Fish?etc], Season,Environment, weather,Animals/Fur,ticks n mites,Metals,Chemicals, Drugs,Dust, Pollution,Soaps, Detergents, Fragrances, Perfumes, Pollen etc?.

All these may not be causative factor for one person who is already a sufferer.It varies from person to person.The people who are allergic to certain things in any form may not be allergic to other things,& the Allergens which create any problem in one may not show any effect on the other.It all depends purely on individual sensitivity, Immunity levels.In few, Genetic, hereditary factors also plays important role.

Basically, when a person becomes allergic to certain thing, there will be production of antibodies into the body as a general defense mechanism.But then the reaction b/w the allergens & antibodies will cause increased release of Histamine product which results in causing various symptoms. Like sneezings, watery discharge from Nose,Redness of Eyes, irritation, Itching of Nose n eyes.These all called as Rhinitis. But when skin becomes the sufferer like form developing Rash,[Urticaria]Redness, small eruptions, any discoloration etc, with itching, burning, irritation like, then it comes under Dermatitis[may be contact dermatitis].

Majority of allergies start from childhood, as then their immunity levels will be comparatively less.{But it does not mean that adults wont get? it all depends on Immunity, susceptibility of the individuals, which will be resulted by their Life style, any other health problems,stress factors etc].

If care was taken in initial stages, then in majority of cases, there will be no more further progress or c/o.S
First we have to observe the causative factors from which we are getting the c/o.If it can be avoidable, better to avoid; if cant, then,its ideal to go for T/t.
As prevention is better than Cure,Keep children distant from Pets,Fur toys, maintaining good hygiene, avoiding unnecessary medication for small small c/o also,application of different creams,Giving nutritious food,[food containing Vit C, B, A] physical exercises, {for infants? breast feeding for minimum 6-9 months will rise up their immunity levels] all will help them to be free from allergies. Practising the Pranayama, [breathing exercises] will give tremendous results in relieving the rhinitis c/o.
If allergies are neglected in initial condition, then they may progress into Sinusitis, Asthma, Eczema, anaphylactic shock etc.
Frequent usage of antihistamines gradually will decrease the effect of medicine & increase the resistance power of the allergens.Moreover, by the use of antihistamine, patient will feel more drowsy, dull,irritable, even more anxious also some times. If once the action of antihistamine diminished, then there will be no other choice except taking steroids, which will show many more side effects on long run of usage.
In Homeopathy, As Cure always based on the selection of symptoms, analysis of a person, there will not be any side effects.
Drugs like Arsenic album, Nux.Vomica, Calcarea carb, Tuberculinum, Carcinosin, Phosphorus, Rhus.Tox, Bell,Apis, Bromium, Lyssin, Hepar sulph, Nitric acid, Gelsemium,Silicea,Pulsatilla.Etc will help in giving Cure from various allergies.

Note:But always the drug & potency should be under guidance of Expert only.

I have more pimples on my face and dark spots.
What I have to do to require this?
The eruption of pimples, black marks and oily face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face.. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples This will cause more damage and scars. . * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. .We have good treatment in Homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. The medicines work internally, tackle the root of the problem unlike face wash which is a surface treatment..

Ayurveda,

Hairfall can be due to many reasons, like excessive pitta in the body or sinus problem or loss of asthi dhatu. So proper treatment is necessary according to symptoms. 1) start taking 1 amla everyday. 2) apply paste of trifla, bhringraj & methi seeds on head before washing & wash after 1 hr. 3) increase the qty of milk & ghee in your diet. 4) have a good sleep. 5) go for shirodhara, a panchakarma treatment for reduced stress & better hair growth 6) reduce the amount of salt & spices in your daily diet 7) wash hair with trifla & neem kadha.

Do not wash hair with hot water for the very same reason, always use cold water or water at room temperature. Dry and frizzy hair when you walk out of the shower is the indication that the water was too hot for your hair.
