Dandruff - Causes and Treatment!

Dry white flakes of skin, on your scalp is known as dandruff.
It is not a health risk, but is a source of embarrassment.
Some people have the wrong notion that it is because of bad hygiene or washing the hair often - this is a false belief. It is just that people having dandruff shed more skin then others.
However some dermatologists suggest that is caused by a yeast fungus that is believed to breed in a combination of sebaceous oil and dead skin cells.

CAUSES:

A family history of dandruff.
Excessive sweating of the scalp.
Excessive mental and physical stress.
Use of alkaline soaps.
Cold dry winter season.
Psoriasis of scalp.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Improper carbohydrate and sugar consumption.
Nutrient deficiencies - B-complex, essential fatty acids, selenium.
SIGN AND SYMPTOMS:

Flakes of skin which may be small and white or large greasy and yellow.
Itching on scalp, eyebrows, nose or ears.
It can be worse in winters.
DIETARY MANAGEMENT:
Avoid:

Avoid fatty and oily food.
Avoid dairy products (except yoghurt) - cheese, cottage cheese and seafood.
Avoid sugar, white flour and chocolate
Avoid excess alcohol.
Avoid stress.
Even though dandruff is dry flaking skin do not normally apply excessive oil as it may provide an environment for yeast to breed.
DO:

Add one tea spoon of vinegar to the rinsing water after washing your hair.
Before washing your hair, apply a mixture of 8 table spoon of pure organic peanut oil and 2 table spoon lemon juice and massage into the scalp. Leave it for 10-15 minutes then shampoo.
You can replace oil with coconut milk or coconut water; leave it over night and shampoo.
Wash hair with natural, herbal ingredients rather than chemical take mixture of amla (Indian goose berri) powder, aritha (sapindus Laurifotius) powder and shikakai (Acacia Concinna) powder, soak it in water over night and wash hair with the mixture.
Practice yoga, helps in relieving stress and will increase blood circulation.
Natural live yoghurt is recommended as a natural conditioner.
Avoid harsh hair dyes and hair creams.
Softly massage your scalp when you shampoo or oil. This will help blood circulation and prevent skin from drying and cracking.
CONSUME:

Drink plenty of water.
Eat large percentage of your diet as raw fruits and vegetables.
Consume (3-4) - nuts and seeds daily.
Consume linseed oil - 2 table spoon.
Consumption of Aelo vera juice is also helpful.
Consume Kelp and Japanese sea plants frequently as they supply many minerals like iodine which are better for hair growth and healing of the scalp.
Increase intake of zinc in diet:

Shellfish, beef and other red meats, eggs and seafood, milk and milk products, nuts, sea plants especially Japanese sea.
Consume diet rich in antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Increase intake of foods that contain PUFA`s (poly unsaturated fatty acids): flax / linseed oil is the richest source of PUFA`s. Other oils that contain PUFA`s are safflower oil, soybean oil, maize oil, sesame oil, olive oil. As all oils are high in fats, its consumption should be limited. The intake of oils should not exceed 20gms a day.
Sesame oil and almond oil hinders the absorption of LDL (low-density lipoproteins), so it is advisable to use replace other cooking oils by sesame oil.
Consume lots of Selenium:

Fish, shellfish, eggs, red meat, chicken, liver, grains, Brazil nuts, garlic, wheat germ and brewer`s yeast.
Consume lots of Vitamin B complex:

Liver, kidney, pancreas, yeast (Brewer's yeast), lean meat especially pork, fish, dairy products, poultry, egg, shrimps, crabs and lobsters,.
Milk and milk products, green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grain cereals.
Carrots, bananas, avocado, raspberries, artichoke, cauliflower, soy flour, barley, cereals, pasta, whole grains, wheat barn like rice and wheat germ, dried beans, peas and soybeans.

I am 33 years old and I am having dark circles under eyes. Plz suggest some tips to get rid out of it.Explain the reason behind it?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

Blue Circles The cause: Blue circles result from oxygenated blood pooled beneath the under-eye skin. Skin here is very thin and almost transparent, so blood shows through. This is more noticeable in the morning: When we have been horizontal for a while, fluids accumulate and the veins expand to hold more blood. Blue circles may get worse with age. As we get older, we lose subcutaneous fat, which can mask blueness below the surface of the skin? Brown Circles The cause: Brown circles result from hyperpigmentation, triggered by chronic eye-rubbing, sun exposure, or genetics

These are the methods to treat fastly acne - • 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. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • 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. * Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. Be healthy.

My hair is loss on head some where.
Hi. It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym!
