Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion--- Instead of using the chemical products for your skin, try using some natural home remedies. Using home remedies can work out to be much cheaper than chemical based products and they can help treat your condition without any side effects. Caring for your skin is highly important. Here are some home remedies that allow your skin to be free of dark spots, black spots or pimple marks or even acne scars----Take pulp from Aloe Vera leaves and let it dry in the sun for 5 minutes and then add few drops of lemon juice to the dried pulp. Apply this mixture on the spots and wash it off after 15 minutes. The results are quite good.

Dear, These are the causes of acne: • excessive sebum production (sebum is oily secretion from the gland). • Due to hormonal imbalance and infection by bacteria. These are the methods to avoid acne: • To control the sebum secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • you can use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin. • Do not take stress for pimple.

Dandruff & Homoeo medicines:
Dandruff is mostly due to the excessive Dryness or Oiliness that caused by increased secretion of sebum,Sweat .This may be in the form of Dry,whitish or yellowish flakes, powdery.Sometimes, skin c/o like Scalp psoriasis, scalp Eczema, Seborrhoeic dermatitis or Boils which cases exfoliation of skin layer after getting dried up are also could be thought of just Dandruff. Generally, in many types of skin diseases, there usually will be common symptoms like Itching, Irritation, dryness, or secretion of pus/ any other serous fluids,redness,exfoliation of skin, spreading[if caused by any bacteria, fungus]etc.Like that way, in dandruff also, there would be dryness, itching, irritation,based on severity, secondaries like formation of Acne[pimples] also may happen.
As precautionary measures, Always using the herbal shampoos[like containing Shikakai, Amla,Reetha , Hibiscus flowers, Brahmi,etc ]is good.At the same time,using Oils like coconut, Sesame, Olive,Maize are good to keep hair roots stronger& to maintain Scalp smooth.That application also should always be in gentle manner. Better to apply just 1-2 hrs before the headwash. Try to wash hair weekly minimum 2-3 times, that too with soft water, Avoid Hard water.
Coconut milk,or water,Rice starch,Yoghurt with methi[soaked fenu greek seeds paste], vinegar with water, aloevera will help to keep hair in good condition as well as to nourish the Scalp skin.
Diet also plays important role in keeping scalp healthy. So that, taking more water[minimum 3-4 ltrs of water intake/day],taking of more raw vegetables, fresh fruit juices[with Honey mixed or with less sugar] or fruits as a whole, increasing the intake of more proteinaceous diet,whole wheat, whole grains,pulses, hand pounded rice, food that is rich in Vit A, E, B complex,& reducing the consumption of Sugar, Fat,canned,preserved food,junk food,etc followed by regular exercise, yoga, meditation which helps in keeping the mind stress free,will help in controlling as well as precautionary.
Always Better avoiding more chemical based Shampoos, conditioners, few cosmetic therapies like colouring, dying, straightening etc as these will result damaging gradually the hair as well as the scalp texture.
Homeopathically, these conditions can be treated well, if u undergo T/t for a while. Medicines like, Calcarea carb, Graphitis, Lyco, China, Acid Flour,Acid phos,Phos, psorinum, Amm.Mur, Alumina,Sepia, Natrum mur,Thuja,Sulphur,etc will help, if were chosen according to individual?s symptom similarity.
Note: If once its diagnosed as its not general dandruff, but due to any other Skin c/o,as mentioned above, Then, treatment should be taken accordingly under Expert?s guidance.

Hello. In case you are really loosing excess of hair and scantiness has started appearing or else your mid-partition has strated getting widened, you need to get alerted! Hairloss can happen due to many reasons - change of place/ weather/ season, use of bore water/ hard water, nutritional deficiencies, stress/ tension, etc. So, would advise you to get your blood tested for CBC, S. Ferritin, S. Iron, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12 and Thyroid profile (in case there is family history of Thyroid dysfunction). Get back to me with the reports.

Homeopathy and Skin Conditions!

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, PG HOM (London), CCH, CGO, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Homeopathy and Skin Conditions!

The skin is the largest organ of protection and defense. The skin plays an important role in the elimination of toxins and can assist the kidneys in their work. If there is a buildup of toxins in the body, the skin will try to help in removing them. The skin tries to help to eliminate the toxins out as skin rashes or skin conditions.

Every day we are exposed to toxins in our air, water, food and personal products. Examples of these chemicals are pesticides (in our food, lawns and parks), solvents (in gasoline, paints and cleaning products) and plastic chemicals (such as BPA and phthalates). We can do our best to live free of these substances, but some are unavoidable. Eating reactive foods leads to inflammation, which can lead to a number of symptoms and diseases, including chronic skin problems such as acne and eczema. Signs of toxicity that appear in the skin include acne, boils, rashes, inflammation, etc.

Your body needs to get rid of the waste products somehow. Some of these wastes can be excreted through the skin, such as urea, water, uric acid and ammonia. This helps rid your body of the things that might make you sick if your skin didn’t serve as a gateway to the outside.

Causative factors of skin diseases:

Skin diseases are the expression of toxins accumulation in the body. This toxin accumulation can cause by,

  1. Stress
  2. Food with chemicals like pesticides, preservatives, processed food
  3. Exposure to chemicals through soaps, shampoos, phenyl
  4. Exposure to radiation
  5. Exposure to pollution – water, air and food
  6. Uses of plastic materials

Skin being the largest organ in the human body, presents many diseases. In fact, skin is the reflection of what is happening inside the body. Most of the internal systems and organs in the body when get affected or dis-eased because of accumulation of toxins, they show their effects in the form of skin diseases, in various forms.

Skin Conditions

  1. Rash: Nearly any change in the skin’s appearance can be called a rash. Most rashes are from simple skin irritation; others result from medical conditions.
  2. Dermatitis: A general term for inflammation of the skin. Atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema) is the most common form.
  3. Eczema: Skin inflammation (dermatitis) causing an itchy rash. Most often, it’s due to an overactive immune system.
  4. Psoriasis: An autoimmune condition that can cause a variety of skin rashes. Silver, scaly plaques on the skin are the most common form.
  5. Dandruff: A scaly condition of the scalp may be caused by seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, or eczema.
  6. Acne: The most common skin condition, acne affects over 85% of people at some time in life.
  7. Cellulitis: Inflammation of the dermis and subcutaneous tissues, usually due to an infection. A red, warm, often painful skin rash generally results.
  8. Abscess (boil or furuncle): A localized skin infection creates a collection of pus under the skin.
  9. Warts: A virus infects the skin and causes the skin to grow excessively, creating a wart.
  10. Melanoma: The most dangerous type of skin cancer, melanoma results from sun damage and other causes. A skin biopsy can identify melanoma.
  11. Basal cell carcinoma: The most common type of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma is less dangerous than melanoma because it grows and spreads more slowly.
  12. Squamous cell carcinoma: A common form of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma may begin as an ulcer that won’t heal, or an abnormal growth. It usually develops in sun-exposed areas.
  13. Herpes: The herpes viruses HSV-1 and HSV-2 can cause periodic blisters or skin irritation around the lips or the genitals.
  14. Hives: Raised, red, itchy patches on the skin that arise suddenly. Hives usually result from an allergic reaction.
  15. Tinea vesicolor: A benign fungal skin infection creates pale areas of low pigmentation on the skin.
  16. Shingles (herpes zoster): Caused by the chickenpox virus, shingles is a painful rash on one side of the body.
  17. Scabies: Tiny mites that burrow into the skin cause scabies. An intensely itchy rash in the webs of fingers, wrists, elbows, and buttocks is typical of scabies.
  18. Ringworms: A fungal skin infection (also called tinea). The characteristic rings it creates are not due to worms.
  19. Skin Allergies – Reaction of body through the skin to some allergens like some food item, dust, sun etc

Homoeopathic Management:

Homoeopathic medicines make our body strong to relieve stress and to remove toxins from the body. Homeopathic remedies not only remove the complaint but also the tendency of the complaint to recur. Since the causes are internal, we need internal medicines. Applying ointments on skin problems may again push all toxins inside our body, which can result in disease of internal organs which is more harmful. Some examples of Homoeopathic remedies

  • Hepetic eruptions all over the body – Dulcamara, psorinum, ran- b
  • Fiery red rashes on the body – Aconite, belladonna, stramonium, sulphur
  • Soft warts – Ant –crude, calc, nit-a, sil, thuja

Some lifestyle changes for skin ailments,

  1. Drink lots of water to help body to remove toxins
  2. Use lemon to remove toxins from body
  3. Take 7 hours sleep to help the repair of our body
  4. Do good amount of physical activities to remove toxins through increase in blood circulation and sweating
  5. Practice some relaxation methods to manage the stress
  6. Have lots of vegetables and fruits preferably organic
  7. Wash all fruits and vegetables properly to remove pesticides
  8. Avoid radiation and pollution as much as possible
  9. Avoid chemical contacts through the skin and nose.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult online, on phone or in clinic.
