A woman’s hair is the first most noticeable part of her beauty. It enhances her personality. It is not only true for women but also for men. A bad hair is just a bad day and nowadays bad days are very common because of frequent hair problems.
Common hair problems:
While in modern life, for achieving their goals and position and even to compete for the basic needs people have to work more stressfully. Due to this, Dinacharya and Ritucharya have taken a back seat, moreover faulty dietary habits and faulty hair care methods with an unending race for chemical cosmetics from fashion industry, exposure to sunlight, water and air pollution etc. lead to greying of hair or fall down at a younger age.
Here are some probable causes:
Excessive salty and spicy food
Lack of sleep
Lack of nutrition
Frequent different hairstyles
Over combing / overbrushing of hair
Improper usage of heated hair appliances
Constant coloring of hair
Nutrition and development of Hair
- According to Ayurveda, from the ingested food, body forms assimilable nutrition fluid. Nutrition fluid gets divided into essential fluid and waste matter.
- The waste matter is responsible for the formation of urine, hair, sweat etc.
- The color of hair is based on one's prakriti (body constitution).
- Vata prakriti: Dry and low-density hair
- Pitta prakriti: Yellowish hair
- Kapha Prakriti: Thick, black and curly hair.
1. Excessive hair fall:
The vitiated vata dosha and pitta dosha having recourse to the root of hair make hair fall off while vitiated blood and kapha fill up the follicles and thus blocking fresh growth.
2. Premature greying:
Stress, anger, fatigue and sorrow increase agni which vitiates the pitta which having recourse to head make the hair prematurely grey.
It is due to vitiated kapha and vata. They cause hairy parts of the body hard and dry and itchy. So, the skin or scalp gets cracked, hence lead to dandruff.
Hair loss problem is of great concern. Various synthetic medicines are available for hair loss treatment which does not treat permanently and also have severe side effects. Turning to Ayurveda is the safer and better option in the long run. Herbal medicines, hair oils, lifestyle and diet regimens, Panchakarma procedures help to prevent premature greying, hair fall, dandruff and promotes hair growth. So, Ayurveda has the holistic approach towards the solution of hair problem.

Lack of proper mobility due to stiffness and significant pain can be due to a number of bone and joint problems. Osteoarthritis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as injuries, trauma and inflammation of the knees are only some of the reasons why a patient may be experiencing joint pain. Apart from rest and medication, various surgical procedures may be considered as an option for particularly severe cases. Partial knee replacement surgery is one such option. So, here are the five questions that you must ask an orthopaedic specialist about partial knee replacement surgery.
- What is partial knee replacement surgery: This kind of surgery usually seeks only to replace the damaged part of the knee where the movements of the patient get restricted to a great degree. With the help of this surgery, the orthopaedic surgeon can replace the medial or inner part of the knee; or the lateral or outer part of the knee. When the surgeon conducts a surgery to replace the entire knee, this is called knee replacement.
- How to prepare for the procedure: The doctor will advise you to stay away from any medication and dietary supplements that may hinder the work of the anaesthesia that will be administered before the surgery. Before the surgery, the orthopaedic specialist will understand your medical history.
- What is the procedure: The surgical procedure for partial knee replacement surgery usually involves keeping the knee in a bent position so that all the joint surfaces are well exposed. The surgeon will start by making an incision that is about six to ten inches in length, before removing the knee cap in order to remove the joint surfaces that have faced damage. Once this has been done, the surgeon will attach artificial joint pieces and close the knee. Then, the doctor will bend and rotate to test for balance and proper functioning of the knee. This procedure usually takes close to two hours.
- How long does recovery take: The recovery process usually takes about three to four weeks following the surgery.
- What to do after the surgery: Pain medication will help the patient in coping with the initial discomfort and after effects of the surgery. Right after the surgery, the patient will be shown exercises before he or she is put onto a graduated walking program where walking indoors and then outdoors will be practiced. The patient will be required to take on physiotherapy for four to six months following this procedure so as to recover in a better manner and have a better functioning knee.
