How to get rid of dark circles?

BHMS
Homeopath,
How to get rid of dark circles?
Hi. Dark circles can be temporary (means happens after any recent or chronic diseases or underlying medical condition, allergies, sinus infections and nasal congestions, lower eyelid laxity, fluid retention, hormonal imbalances, hyperpigmentation, aging, sun-exposure, insufficient sleep, worm-infestation, nutritional deificiency, working long hrs. on computer, lack of rest, stress/ tension, etc.) which can be improved by fixing the underlying cause or the problem or can be inherited from your parent's genes which can't be treated or cured! Management: Eat healthy and on time. Avoid junk. Drink plenty of water (as dehydration can cause dull or patchy skin). Sleep well. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer. The area under your eyes has very sensitive skin, so never use chemical bleach. Reduce your stress/ tension through yoga, meditation or any other exercises (it not only improves your blood circulation, but also reduces the production of stress hormones by the body as well as increases happy hormones in the body). Use sunglasses regularly when you are in the sun and not to forget to apply a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen liberally, 20-30 minutes before stepping out in the sun and apply the same again after 3-4 hours if you have exposure to sunlight for long hours. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Cina 1M/ one dose daily at night for 10 days. Schwabe's Alfalafa Tonic/ 1 tsp thrice a day daily for 20 days and revert me back about the condition. Apply Bakson's Under Eye Cream twice daily (in morning and at night) and Medicynth's Whitch Hazel cream and Bakson's Under Eye cream twice - in morning and at night daily.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
I have observed deep circles below my eyes. How to remove these to bring my face surface in level with eyes?
Some causes behind the dark circles are hereditary, aging, dry skin, prolonged crying, working for long hours in front of a computer, mental or physical stress, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet. Take homoeopathic medicine China 30 ( 4 drops in little water twice a day for 15 days and revert. Follow the tips: *Get an adequate amount of sleep. *Drink at least 8 -10 glasses of water everyday. *Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A to prevent dark circles around eyes. *Avoid stress. *Gently massaging almond oil or olive oil around the eyes during nights can give great results in reducing the dark circles.

(my daughter) is having some marks or dark brown patches on all of her body. These are compretively more on hands and back.We have discussed with doctor at the time of her birth and he said that these are birthmaks could be better with time. Till the age of about10 years, there is no change and marks remain as such, though we have taken care for her bathing soap and facial cream etc.But from 12 years age (about) one or two bumps appear on her back. There is no pain, no itching etc. Only a bump of 5mm in dia and 5-6 mm in height ( like peas or corn). Its color is dark brown. Some time its size changes its own. Initialy, these were only 1-2 on back, but after some time its started on her hands and numbers were only 1-2. At this stage ,we consulted with doctors and some were suggested surgery ( which we did not prefer) and some suggested Homeopathy. We selected Homeopathy and started treatment fro one trusted doctor from Kanpur.This doctor suggested to wait for some time, so treatment goes to 2-2.5 years. During this treatment some times we feel that bumps are disappearing but again its started to appear The worst part is, some new one started to appear Now, situation is, she is having about 20-25 bumps, mostly on her back and some are on her arms and neck. Bumps increase in size gradually, color is drak brown. There is no pain, only thing is these spoil the look and does not look nice at visible parts of body. Some physician and skin specialist diagnose it as NEURO FIFRO MATOSIS and suggested no permanent treatment for this. Now, I want to know --- 1. Is there any treatment for this in Homeopathy for permanent cure ? 2. If yes, how much time it will take show the response of treatment ? 3. Where we should meet the doctor. Please help me.

CCH (Wa.,DC), BHMS
Homeopath,
Hello, I understand that you have taken Homeopathy treatment.I feel may be in that treatment, partial selection of medicine was there. I believe appropriate constitutional homeopathic treatment would be highly helpful.Regarding duration, it will take 2 - 6 months to see the change but treatment will continue for at least a year. Thanks

I am loosing my hair and I have tried so may shampoo and I don't know what to do.
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. So please see some ayurveda physician near you personally. Till then you can try these home remedies. 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 8) Make a Hair pack mixing fine powders of triphalā 50 gm, nāgaramothā 10 gm, methī seeds 40 gm and mehendī or hīnā (Lowsonia inermis) powder 150 gm in water and apply from the root to the tips of the hair. This pack is kept for about 2 hrs and washed clean.

What is the difference between hair that falls that has a white bulb at the bottom and the other has black bulb at the bottom. Do both grow back?

What is the difference between hair that falls that has a white bulb at the bottom and the other has black bulb at th...
whit bulb at the end means that the hair is in telogen, i.e. already dead as in not growing anymore...hair grows for 2-4 yrs, and if you pull it out during this stage it doesn't have a white bulb, as it's still inside the hair shaft...then the hair stops growing and goes into catagen for 2-4 weeks, where it moves the white bulb outside the shaft, separating from the folicle...finally, the hair moves into telogen for the next 2-3 months...at this point the white bulb is completely out...then in a normal situation, a new hair from underneath starts pushing the telogen hair out till it falls out...in AGA type of situation, when there's no hair growing underneath the hair remains in telogen till it's pulled out either during hair washing/brushing...or if you pull on it...hence we see more hair come out during washing/brushing

My dear lybrate-user it is very common to be depressed after losing a dear relation. It is called acute grief reaction and we all have passed or experienced it in our family. If the departed relation is young the grief is more. Normally we all become normal after 4- 6 weeks. Please try to remain in company of family members and keep yourself busy in your job or business go to park in morning you will find lots of children playing there or people of your age ready to greet and meet you but do not keep on takng about your loss which is definately irrepairable but life has to go on and can not remain static. Do dome yoga or meditation to break the vicious circle of your thoughts. I am not asking you to forget it but have love and respect for departed relation and at the same time putting your life to normal healthy routime. Do not take any medicine and wishing you healthy life.

I am suffering hair fall. What should i do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am suffering hair fall. What should i do?
Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
