I suffering from hair fall and I'm just 20 year old. Can you please consult me what can I do. Please help me.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I suffering from hair fall and I'm just 20 year old. Can you please consult me what can I do. Please help me.
Dear lybrate user, hair growth occurs in cycles. Each cycle consists of a long growing phase (anagen), a short transitional phase (catagen) and a short resting phase (telogen). At the end of the resting phase, the hair falls out (exogen) and a new hair starts growing in the follicle beginning the cycle again. Normally, about 40 hairs reach the end of their resting phase each day and fall out. When more than 100 hairs fall out per day, clinical hair loss may occur. Hair loss have many causes such as:- 1) shrinkage of the hair follicles due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 2) under-nutrition of the hair due to fungal infection on the scalp. 3) effects of radio therapy or chemotherapy. 4) nutritional deficiencies. 5) autoimmune diseases. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes surgical modes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months. You can start the following medications:- 1) take 5 drops of homeopathic sulphur 200, once in a week. 2) take 5 drops of homoeopathic selenium 200 every morning before brushing your teeth. 3) take 4 tablets from biochemic natrum mur 6x tablets, thrice daily. Just chew the tablets as those tablets are sweet in taste. 4) take homoeopathic mother tincture acid phos q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines may need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.

My hair are very thin and dandruff also comes often although I try to remove it. But also my hair is very thin and weak and brittle. I'm losing a lot of hair. But I'm not stressed, I follow a good diet, I drink water, moderate exercise, I eat walnuts etc also but still nothing is helping much. My hair are silky and super shiny but very less. I'll soon go bald. Please help. Suggest some good lotions or herbal shampoos. Try to avoid chemicals. Suggest a hair routine as well.

I hope this message finds you in good health. To prevent hair fall, you can follow some simple steps as listed below: 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home). 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yogurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair.

Hairfall may occur naturally as a part of the aging process. It may occur as effects of serious illness or may be hereditary. It can occur also due to the use of certain drugs. Baldness or receading hairline may be due to following causes:- 1. Age- by the age of 50, approximately 50% men experience hair loss. 2. Stress 3. Illness 4. Major surgery 5. Medicine such as those used in chemotherapy, blood thinners, antu depressants, excessive amount of vit. A and diseases like diabetes. What to do? by adapting healthier eating habbits and consuming protein packed foods like meats, chicken, fish, eggs and milk, hair loss can ease generally and normal growth can resume in months. Vitamin a, b2, folic acid, iidine, copper, amino acids, mostly found in green leafy vegetables plays a significant role in hair maintenance. Onion slices rubbed at the bald area helps in new hair growth. Brewed green tea water can be applied over the scalp as it is rich in anti oxidants, which gives strength to the hair strands. Regular oiling, nourishing and washing maintains healthy scalp n hairs. Apply arnica hair oil. It checks the hair fall.

We can treat this problems but we need extra information about the patient. I will send a case taking form which you have to fill up that and I will tell the medicine's name" erythromelalgia, formerly known as mitchell's disease, acromelalgia, red neuralgia, orerythermalgia, is a rare neurovascular peripheral pain disorder in which blood vessels, usually in the lower extremities or hands, are episodically blocked (frequently on and off daily), then become hyperemic and inflamed. There is severe burning pain (in the small fiber sensory nerves) and skin redness. The attacks are periodic and are commonly triggered by heat, pressure, mild activity, exertion, insomnia or stress. Erythromelalgia may occur either as a primary or secondary disorder (i. E. A disorder in and of itself or a symptom of another condition). Secondary erythromelalgia can result from small fiber peripheral neuropathy of any cause, polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, hypercholesterolemia, mushroom or mercury poisoning, and some autoimmune disorders. Primary erythromelalgia is caused by mutation of the voltage-gated sodium channel?-subunit gene scn9a. In 2004 erythromelalgia became the first human disorder in which it has been possible to associate an ion channel mutation with chronic neuropathic pain; when its pathophysiology was initially published in the journal of medical genetics. Conversely, in december 2006 a university of cambridge team reported an scn9a mutation that resulted in a complete lack of pain sensation in a pakistani street performer and some of his family members. He felt no pain, walked on hot coals and stabbed himself to entertain crowds"

Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like *physical or emotional stress, inadequate protein intake, genetics, anemia, aging, hormonal changes, prolonged illness, deficiency of vitamin b6 and folic acid, thyroid diseases. *hair fall can also result when one indulges in too much dying, blow drying or use of hot curlers. *dandruff can also be great cause behind hair fall. Take homoeopathic medicine folliplus tablets (adven) (3 tabs) twice a day for 15 days and update. Apply jobarandi hair oil. *make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. *eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. *eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. *add more vitamin rich food to your diet. *avoid stress and anger. *cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. *take a sound sleep. *avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight. *avoid hot hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. *it is best not to comb the hair while it is wet as this leads to greater chances of hair breakage.

I am 35 year old female. I never had a single pimple or acne problem till now. I have recurring acne problem from last 8 months. After many treatments now I am using berberis aquifolium gel and homeo calendula prickly heat powder from last week. Skin has become very dry and pimples though reduced new ones are coming. Should I stop certain food like tea, curd, milk? should I completely stop oil in my food?
