Hello Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your face. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the face,wash it off after it dries.

Hello lybrate-user, if your skin is absolutely normal with no itching or allergies to the sun rays, you can apply sunban spf 31 sunscreen lotion all over the exposed skin and repeat it every three hours.

The cause of white spots are * loss of pigmentation * fungal infection * loss of upper skin due to dryness to treat the white spots- * apply coconut or mustard oil on th effected parts once a day specially in the evening. * crush 15-20 leaves of neem and put them in a bucket of luke warm water for 15 minutes & take bath with this water. * take a glass of milk added with a teaspoon of protien powder once a day. * apply the paste of aloe vera & turmeric powder on the effected parts of body 2 times a week for 15-20 minutes.

White patches can be due to a variety of reasons like sun allergy, leukoderma, vitamin deficiencies etc. First a proper diagnosis need to be made and then treatment can be suggested. Use colored fruits and vegetables like papaya, beet root, grapes etc they rich in antioxidants.

How To Treat Obesity The Ayurvedic Way?

How To Treat Obesity The Ayurvedic Way?

Some people eat to live while others live to eat. The latter often find themselves overweight and suffering from obesity. An obese person typically has excessive fat deposits on his or her abdomen, breasts, thighs and buttocks. Apart from overeating, a lack of exercise and bad sleep habits also contribute to obesity. If left unaddressed, obesity can increase a person’s risk of heart disease, diabetes, liver damage, kidney issues and arthritis. Some of the symptoms of this condition include:

  1. Lethargy
  2. Fatigue
  3. Increased waist size
  4. Breathlessness on the slightest exertion
  5. Excessive sweating

According to Ayurveda, obesity is also known as Medarog. The aggravation of Kapha dosha is considered responsible for this condition. Kapha can be described as cold, wet, sticky, dense and slow in nature. The kapha dosha is responsible for weight management and formation of tissues, blood, fat, bones, muscle and nutritive fluids. When the kapha dosha is aggravated, it can cause an accumulation of toxins in the body or more specifically, the Medovahi Srotas or fat channels of the body. This causes the amount of fat tissue to increase thus increasing a person’s weight.

Thus to treat obesity, Ayurveda focuses on pacifying the kapha dosha. This is achieved in two ways. The first step is to avoid any food that could aggravate the kapha dosha. This includes carbohydrates like white rice and potatoes, any kind of processed food, oily or fried food, and dairy products made from whole milk. These may be replaced with brown rice, whole wheat flour, steamed foods and skimmed milk products. An ayurvedic diet to combat obesity also advises an increase in fruit and vegetable intake with special mention of bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and drumsticks.

The second step to dealing with obesity is to cleanse the Medovahi Srotas. This can be achieved with the help of cleansing herbs. Starting each day with a glass of warm water mixed with freshly squeezed lemon juice and a spoon of honey can be very effective towards achieving this aim. Additionally, you could also drink a tea made by steeping a few mint leaves in hot water. Herbs such as guggul, haritaki, amla, bibhitaka and kumbhajatu can be very helpful in cleansing the body.

In addition to eating the right food in the right quantity, regular exercise is also a must. Ideally, you should exercise for at least half an hour each day. Going for a long, brisk walk, running and swimming are ideal exercises for weight loss. Along with helping you lose excess weight, exercising also tones your muscles, reduces stress and increases your stamina.

How to become more fairer? Reduce dark circles? How to reduce pimples? Reduce hair falling etc.
Hi lybrate user. At first you have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take food two times in a day only. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals. 3) avoid late night sleeping habits. 4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast and fermented foods. A) take 30 ml of audumbaravleha along with 30 ml of lukewarm water after meals. B) take 2-2 tablets of sutshekhar rasa and chandraprabha vati after meals. C) take 60 ml of trifala juice and 20 ml of honey along with 60 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for thirty days and reply me for further suggestions. Thanks.

Hi My skin tone is not so oily and not so dry. But I also don't know what exactly it is. Whenever I go to parlour I got confused which facial or cleanup will suit me and will give soft, supple and radiant glow to my face.

It is important to assess the severity and level of sundamage before choosing a treatment. The damage can be superficial/deep/mixed. Get yourself assessed by a specialist for a specific treatment (peels/laser/dermabrasion/medicines). A sunscreen is a must throughout the year with spf 30 or above. It has to be applied twice daily (morning and noon) atleast 20 mins before stepping out in sun. Use sunshades as glasses/umbrella (black). Hydrate yourself in this season for your skin to glow.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4weeks.
