Homoeopathic medicine---------------------------------- passiflora q (dr reckeweg. Drink 30 drops in 20 ml fresh water before sleep. Alpha ts (wilmar schwabe india) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 15 days. Bramari pranayam daily bramari pranayam or bee breath 1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat twenty times. Starting from 5 times drink plenty of water daily--------------------- home remedies for dark circles-------------------- slice up a papaya. Papaya fruit contains the enzyme papain. Papain helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains vitamin c and vitamin e, so it's a dark spot fading superstar. Papain is most concentrated while the papaya is still green, but you can use riper fruit as well. Peel and remove the seeds from a papaya, and try one of the following treatments: 1. Slice a piece off of the papaya, and lay or hold it on the dark spots that you want to get rid of. Hold it there for 20-30 minutes. Repeat twice a day for best results. 2. Make a papaya facial mask. Cut the papaya into chunks, then use a blender or food processor to blend the fruit into a smooth paste. Apply the mask to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse well.

I have skin cracking problem in all the season. What should i do?

M.D. homoeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath,
I have skin cracking problem in all the season. What should i do?
Cracking of the skin is basically a dry skin problem. But there are other causes also. Assuming that your problem is just due to dryness of skin, here are some measures to control it: 1. Use glycerine or moisutrizer based soaps for bathing. You can use homoeopathic soaps also, as they are medicated so the results are better. 2. Put 2 -5 drops of almond oil in your bathing water. 3. Do not rub your skin after bath, just pat towel all over the body. 4. Use good quality body moisturiser to keep the skin hydrated. 5. Drinks lots of water. These are just general measures, in case problem persist and you have fissures with blood or transparent fluid discharge, then treatment with internal homoeopathic medicine will be of help.

I have a lot of pimples on my face. I have used a lot of face washes but it is there. What should I do?

I have a lot of pimples on my face. I have used a lot of face washes but it is there. What should I do?
Acne or pimples is a chronic disease involving the pilosebaceous follicles. Sebaceous glands are found most abundantly on the face and scalp, though they are present on every part of the skin except the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Though the sebaceous gland is a mini organ, it is anatomically and functionally related to the hair follicle. Cutaneous disorders attributed to the sebaceous gland are really disorders of the entire pilosebaceous unit. The areas most commonly involved in acne are the face, upper chest, and back. Other less common areas include the upper arms, buttocks, and upper thighs. Acne arises from the interaction of 4 factors 1. Excess sebum production caused by androgenic stimulation of sebaceous glands; 2. Outlet obstruction of the sebaceous follicle arising from excess production of keratinocytes (the basic cell of the epidermis); 3. Increased proliferation of the bacteriaPropionibacterium acnes that normally live in the sebaceous follicle; and 4. Inflammation caused by sebum escaping into the surrounding skin. Excessive manipulation by the patient, causing the primary lesions to disappear and leaving excoriated, raw-looking marks. This is called acne excoriée and can cause scar formation. For removal of black marks you can apply pure coconut oil daily before sleeping, don't apply while going out in sun together with this constitutional homoeopathic treatment will give you best results.

Hello, seems like tanning, your face and neck are tanned and if medicines are not working, it might have been a long time since the problem started. -you should go for laser de tanning. -take care of your skin, put sun screen spf 40 before going in sun, wash your face and wear sun screen in every two hours, on the affected area. -you can also apply lemon juice on the affected area everyday for a month atleast. -you should wear scarf on neck and cover your face in sun. -moisturise face before sleeping.

You are still young and can wait. If there is a deficiency that is restricting your growth, go for regular checkup for b12, iron, iodine copper. Apply cow's fresh butter on the areas. If nothing works, it might be hereditary. Later you can go for hair transplant.

Aloe vera juice is very effective to stop hair loss. Pure aloe gel can be applied directly to the scalp. This is helpful for preventing hair loss due to irritated, dry or infected scalp. Aloe vera balances the ph level of scalp. After massaging the head with aloe gel, wait for few hours and then wash the hair with lukewarm water. You should do this twice a week for best results.

Use some natural tips to straighten your hair - 1. Slightly heat the oil you wish to use in a microwave for about 20 seconds. 2. Apply the warm oil to your hair and massage your scalp for 15 to 20 minutes. 3. Comb your hair thoroughly to evenly distribute the oil. It will also avoid breakage while washing your hair. 4. Cover your hair with a hot wet towel for 30 to 40 minutes. 5. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo. 6. Gently comb your hair (use a wide-toothed comb not a brush) while it is still wet and allow it to air dry.

For fair skin: • Applying a mixture of cucumber and papaya with one teaspoon of each and with three teaspoon of oatmeal apply it for 5 to 10 minutes then rinse off with water twice a week. • Apply one teaspoon Besan with one teaspoon of curd and a pinch of haldi (turmeric) mix it with water then apply for 15 minutes then rinse off it with water Once a week.. • Apply one teaspoon orange juice or take a piece of orange open it then apply that area for 5 minutes then rinse off it once a week. • Eat More fruits daily. • Mash half banana mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice and half teaspoon of sandalwood powder mix it well and make smooth paste apply it for 10 minutes then rinse off with water. • Save yourself from sunlight by covering your face with cloth or by using sunscreen lotion.

The following precautions may help prevent or soothe the recurring skin reactions of chronic hives: wear loose, light clothing. Avoid scratching or using harsh soaps. Cool the affected area with a shower, fan, cool cloth or soothing lotion. Keep a diary of when and where hives occur, what you were doing, what you were eating, and so on. This may help you and your doctor identify triggers. Avoid known triggers, such as certain foods or additives, alcohol, pain relievers, heat, cold, exertion, and stress.

Since your marks are very old, it will take some time to remove the marks. I would advice that you should use a lightening agent like kojic acid and vitamin c combination over the scars. This is a simple, harmless lightening agent which can be used for as long the blackish pigmentation is there. Also, try not to touch the area too much use proper sunscreen (spf>26) before going out in the sun so that the lesion doesn't darken any further take a diet rich in vitamin c and antioxidants like citrus fruits and lots of salads.
