There are many causes of hair fall, like exposure to pollution, prolong stress, chemical content of shampoo, prolong illness like malaria, typhoid, hormonal imbalance (like hypothyroidism), nutrition deficiency etc.; Have protein rich diet like milk, egg, etc. Add more fruits in diet, avoid Stress, have enough sleep (7-8 hrs), avoid chemical added shampoo and cosmetic hair oils. Give coconut/almond oil massage to scalp. FOR DANDRUFF- you must try natural way to treat dandruff - 1 Tea tree oil - One study showed that shampoos with just 5 percent tea tree oil significantly improves the severity of dandruff. You can also add a few drops of tea tree oil to your favorite shampoo as you wash normally. 2. Baking soda - Your kitchen could hold the key to an itch-free, flake-free scalp. Wet your hair and then rub a handful of baking soda vigorously into your scalp. Skip the shampoo and go right to rinsing. Baking soda reduces overactive fungi that can cause dandruff. Your hair may get dried out at first, but after a few weeks your scalp will start producing natural oils, leaving your hair softer and free of flakes. 3. Apple cider vinegar - apple cider vinegar as a dandruff treatment, as the acidity of apple cider vinegar changes the pH of your scalp, making it harder for yeast to grow. Mix a quarter cup apple cider vinegar with a quarter cup water in a spray bottle and spritz on your scalp. Wrap your head in a towel and let sit for 15 minutes to an hour, then wash your hair as usual. Do this twice a week. 4. Coconut oil - coconut oil is a "tried and true" dandruff treatment, and it smells nice too. Before showering, massage 3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil into your scalp and let sit for about an hour. Shampoo normally. You can also look for a shampoo that already contains coconut oil. 5. Lemon - Just massage 2 tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir 1 teaspoon lemon juice into 1 cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat this daily until your dandruff disappears. Lemon's acidity helps balance the pH of your scalp, which helps keeps dandruff at bay. 6. Table salt - The abrasiveness of ordinary table salt works great for scrubbing out dandruff flakes before you shampoo. Grab a saltshaker and shake some salt onto your dry scalp. Then work it through your hair, giving your scalp a massage. You'll find you've worked out the dry, flaky skin and are ready for a shampoo Take homeopathic treatment for chronic hair fall. It is natural and holistic way of treatment.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

General measures : ? Keep the face non-oily by washing it mildly with luke-warm water.  ? Wash the face with warm water frequently without using a soap or with Homoeopathic soap. ? Popping and squeezing of the pimples should not be done as this can worsen the infection and result in increased scar formation. Avoid using scrubs, soaps and vigorous rubbing of the face.  ? Avoid using cosmetics which can worsen the problem  ? Avoid oily and spicy food, and reduce the meat, coffee and tea intake as these can aggravate the problem.  Homoeopathic Treatment:  An internal medicine is required to eliminate this problem because external applications would only suppress the condition and worsen it over a period of time.  With Homeopathic treatment the acne comes down, and the scars heal with the continued treatment.  In cases with underlying hormonal imbalance or irregular menses, this condition is treated along with the acne, so that the main cause of the acne is removed; allowing the acne to heal faster. you can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.

Fractures - How Can You Prevent Them?

Fractures - How Can You Prevent Them?

We have 207 bones in the body and breaking of any one of them can be extremely painful. Broken bones are called fractures and are most often a result of accidents. The risk of breaking a bone depends largely on your age and fractures are most commonly suffered by children and elderly people. There are many types of fractures. The most important amongst these are:

  1. Complete or incomplete fractures: This refers to the way a bone breaks. A complete fracture involves the breaking of a bone into two or more separate pieces while in an incomplete fracture, the bone does not break all the way through and may only be cracked.
  2. Compound fractures: Compound fractures are also known as open fractures. This refers to fractures where the bone tears through the skin.
  3. Simple fractures: Fractures where the bone does not tear through the skin are known as simple fractures. This can be further categorized as greenstick fractures, transverse fractures, oblique fractures and impacted fractures.

Severe pain is one of the most common symptoms of a fracture. Other symptoms include swelling or bruising over the bone area, loss of function and deformity. Any form of a fracture needs medical attention. In most cases, using a splint to reset and support the broken bones can help heal them. This process can be surgical or non-surgical depending on the extent of the fracture. In some cases a pin or metal plate may need to be implanted along with the bone to give them support while they heal.

Fractures can be easily prevented. In your home look out for things you could trip over or bang into. Keep all stairways clear of obstructions and do not use them when wet. Advise your children not to run in the house as tiles are slippery and they could fall and hurt themselves this way.

Follow general safety precautions like wearing a seatbelt while driving or wearing a helmet while riding a bike or bicycle. This can significantly reduce your chances of breaking a bone if caught in an automobile accident.

The weaker your bones, the easier they are to break. Eat food rich in calcium and vitamin D to build stronger bones. Milk and other dairy products are rich in calcium while the best way to get vitamin D is by exposing yourself to the early morning sunlight.

If you suffer from osteoporosis, exercise regularly to improve your balance and increase the strength of your bones and muscles. Your doctor may also prescribe medication for the same.

4 Symptoms Of Shoulder Impingement And Its Treatment!

4 Symptoms Of Shoulder Impingement And Its Treatment!

Shoulder impingement occurs when there is impingement or change in the position of the tendons or a bursa (fluid filled sac or cavity, which causes friction in the joints) in your shoulder. Repeated overhead exercises or intense physical activity concentrated around your shoulder is a common risk factor for shoulder impingement. The examples of such activity would include playing outdoor sports like tennis, swimming etc. or painting for long hours.

How it may affect your daily life?

Shoulder impingement pain is severe in many cases and may affect your everyday activities. In fact, any activity, which involves your shoulders can cause intense pain. You should consult a doctor or a professional medical facility to get relief from pain as well as to avoid aggravating the injury.

Symptoms of shoulder impingement:

  1. You will have difficulty in completing tasks which involve your back.
  2. There may be a weakness in your shoulder muscles.
  3. Pain associated with overhead use of your arm. Anytime you lift your arm there would be pain and would make many day to day activities difficult.
  4. Intense injury to the tendons can cause them to tear into two and would result in a rotator cuff injury and would make your arm movements next to impossible.

Diagnosis of shoulder impingement:

Physical exam and review of medical injury previously sustained on some other occasion is the first step of treatment. Your doctor may also diagnose shoulder impingement by X-rays or MRI of shoulder to see changes in the bone that may indicate any injury. Other changes in the normal contour of the bone may also be checked which may help in further diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment of shoulder impingement:

NSAIDs are anti-inflammatory medicines that are commonly prescribed for shoulder impingement syndrome. These are prescribed for two weeks. Shoulder impingement requires a long time to heal and would require regular consultation with your doctor. If the medications fail to provide any relief in a span of maximum two weeks it may compel your doctor to change the course of treatment. Shoulder impingement is a serious injury and requires proper rest for your shoulder as well as patience as it may take quite some time to come back to normal.

Physiotherapy for Impingement:

Physiotherapy is usually the first line of treatment for subacromial impingement (tendonitis, bursitis) of the shoulder; along with anti-inflammatories and analgesia. It is very successful in treating shoulder impingement syndrome. You will work with your physical therapist to devise a treatment plan that is specific to your condition and goals. Your individual treatment program may include:

  1. Pain Management
  2. Manual techniques, such as gentle joint movements, soft-tissue massage, and shoulder stretches to get your shoulder moving properly.
  3. You will learn exercises and stretches to help your shoulder and shoulder blade move properly.
  4. Strengthening Exercises
  5. The therapist will teach you the proper posture which is an important part of rehabilitation

When Is Surgery Required?

Recalcitrant cases of shoulder impingement require surgery. If the symptoms do not improve over a period of time with medicines and physio or if it deteriorates patient might need a surgery. The surgery which is done usually is an arthroscopic ( keyhole ) surgery in which the structure causing impingement is debulked and a space is created for the structures to move freely. This surgery usually gives significant pain relief and cure.

Vitamin C - How It Can Help Your Skin?

Vitamin C - How It Can Help Your Skin?

Vitamin itself stands for ‘vita’ means ‘important or vital’ and ‘amin’ means ‘substance’. Vitamins are essential for various body functions, and their deficiency can lead to severe problems. Vitamin C is one of the essential vitamins and has multiple benefits for the skin, hair, and overall health. Almost all food substances including regular vegetables and fruits contain some amount of vitamin C, and so it is rare for people to develop this deficiency. However, making sure there is sufficient vitamin C in the diet is very useful. Read on to know more about the skin benefits in more detail:

  1. Collagen: Vitamin C is essential for growth of the collagen which forms the connective tissue layer. A diet low in vitamin C produces dull, lifeless skin. Including vitamin C enriches the underlying layers of the skin, producing glowing, firm skin.

  2. Sun Protection: Vitamin C is very critical in protecting the skin against sun damage. When the sun is exposed to the sun, there is a release of free radicals, which is reduced with vitamin C. It is also rich in antioxidants which protect the skin from ultraviolet damage.

  3. Wound Healing: When there are wounds, vitamin C helps in quicker and better healing of wounds by producing ligaments and creating scar tissue.

  4. Blood Vessels: Vitamin C ensures optimal dilation of blood vessels and this helps in good blood flow to the skin. The skin glow and elasticity is largely improved when there is adequate vitamin C in the diet. Skin texture can turn dull and dry when there is less vitamin C in the diet.

  5. Bleaching Effect: One of the best natural remedies for fairer complexion is the regular use of lime. It reduces melanin production and melanin oxidation. It also reduces the incidence of melanomas, age spots, freckles, and protects from general photochemical reactions which lead to sun damage.

  6. Reduces Wrinkles: In addition to the other anti-ageing benefits, there are reduced wrinkles on the skin with a vitamin C-rich diet. This is due to the antioxidant property of vitamin C which ensures sufficient collagen formation and avoids intrinsic ageing. The photodamage effects are also reduced.

It is important to note that vitamin C absorption is reduced by smoking, cooking steaming, microwaving, and prolonged storage. It is advisable to consume raw fruits and vegetables and freshly cooked foods for maximum benefit. If your diet does not contain sufficient vitamin C, ensure you take supplements, which are available in the market in various forms.

Go ahead and ensure your diet is rich in vitamin C and see these changes for yourself. There also would be dramatic effects on overall health as you consume more of this wonder vitamin.

Papaya - 11 Amazing Reasons To Eat It!

Believed to be used by even Christopher Columbus on his discovery voyage, papaya is known as the angel of fruits. While it is not a taste that most usually enjoy the very first time, it can grow on you slowly and then stick on forever. The raw ones are used in salad and curries, the ripe can be eaten either in solid or liquid form, alone or in combination with other fruits.

Some of the wonderful benefits of papaya are listed below.

  1. Anti-inflammatory: The various minerals and vitamins (A, B, C, K) in papaya help improve immunity and prevents infections. It also promotes healing of burns and wounds.
  2. Cholesterol control: The antioxidants, flavonoids and fibre help in cholesterol/plaque accumulation in the arteries. The lipid and triglyceride content can also be reduced with regular consumption of papayas.
  3. Digestive benefits: The enzyme papain contained in papaya is quite effective in reducing the damage caused by eating junk and oily foods. It helps in breaking down proteins and is, therefore, useful as a home remedy for indigestion. It is also rich in fiber and helps relieve constipation.
  4. Diabetes: The high fiber content in papaya combined with the low calories (a medium sized fruit contains about 110 calories) is a boon to diabetes patients. They can eat to their full content without feeling guilty of the sugar levels. Some people also consume the flowers (sautéed in oil) to control diabetes.
  5. Arthritis: The various minerals (potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium) in papaya can help keep a check on arthritis and bone and joint pains in the long run.
  6. Weight loss/ cleansing/ detox: The various minerals and vitamins along with the rich fiber content ensure you get a good detox of the system. Papaya is one of the widely used fruits in people who want to lose weight.
  7. Antiaging effects: The antioxidants which reduce the rate of inflammation and the multiple vitamins help in looking younger by improving skin, hair, and overall immunity levels.
  8. Stress buster: Again, the antioxidants and vitamins (C in particular) is a good way to refresh your energy after a long tiring day.
  9. Anti-cancer effects: The flavonoids, phytonutrients, and antioxidants help to prevent free radical damage which is the main cause of cancer. They also contain beta carotene which helps control prostate and colon cancer.
  10. Eye health: The beta carotene, vitamin A, and lutein help in improving moisture in the eyes and controlling macular degeneration.
  11. Hair health: The scalp produces sebum which is rich in vitamin A. Papaya when applied to the scalp gives the same effect as sebum, which keeps the hair shiny, silky, and lustrous. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Benefits Of Vitamin D

Benefits Of Vitamin D

15 Facts About Vitamin D:

Vitamin d prevents osteoporosis, Depression, Prostate cancer, Breast cancer

Vitamin d is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of nutrition. 

That's probably because it's free.
Your body makes it when sunlight touches your skin!

Drug companies can't sell you sunlight, so there's no promotion of its health benefits.

 So here's an overview taken from an interview between mike adams and dr. Michael holick.

? 1. Vitamin d is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight. 

? 2. The healing rays of natural sunlight (that generate vitamin d in your skin) cannot penetrate glass. 
So you don't generate vitamin d when sitting in your car or home. 

? 3. It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin d from your diet. sunlight exposure is the only reliable way to generate vitamin d in your own body. 

? 4. A person would have to drink ten tall glasses of vitamin d fortified milk each day just to get minimum levels of vitamin d into their diet. 

? 5. The further you live from the equator, the longer exposure you need to the sun in order to generate vitamin d. Canada, the uk and most u. S. States are far from the equator. 

? 6. People with dark skin pigmentation may need 20 - 30 times as much exposure to sunlight as fair-skinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin d. 
That's why prostate cancer is epidemic among black men -- it's a simple, but widespread, sunlight deficiency. 

? 7. Sufficient levels of vitamin d are crucial for calcium absorption in your intestines. Without sufficient vitamin d, your body cannot absorb calcium, rendering calcium supplements useless. 

? 8. Chronic vitamin d deficiency cannot be reversed overnight: it takes months of vitamin d supplementation and sunlight exposure to rebuild the body's bones and nervous system. 

? 9. Even weak sunscreens (spf=8) block your body's ability to generate vitamin d by 95%. This is how sunscreen products actually cause disease -by creating a critical vitamin deficiency in the body. 

? 10. It is impossible to generate too much vitamin d in your body from sunlight exposure: your body will self-regulate and only generate what it needs. 

? 11. If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum (chest/breast bone), you may be suffering from chronic vitamin d deficiency right now. 

? 12. Vitamin d is" activated" in your body by your kidneys and liver before it can be used. 

? 13. Having kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair your body's ability to activate circulating vitamin d. 

? 14. The sunscreen industry doesn't want you to know that your body actually needs sunlight exposure because that realization would mean lower sales of sunscreen products. 

? 15. Even though vitamin d is one of the most powerful healing chemicals in your body, your body makes it absolutely free. No prescription required. 

Other powerful antioxidants with this ability include: 
Super fruits like pomegranates (pom wonderful juice), 
Acai, blueberries, etc. 

Diseases and conditions cause by vitamin d deficiency:

? Osteoporosis is commonly caused by a lack of vitamin d, which greatly impairs calcium absorption. 

? Rickets" is the name of a bone-wasting disease caused by vitamin d deficiency. 

? Vitamin d deficiency may exacerbate type 2 diabetes and impair insulin production in the pancreas.
? Obesity impairs vitamin d utilization in the body, meaning obese people need twice as much vitamin d. 

? Vitamin d is used around the world to treat psoriasis(a chronic skin disease).
? Vitamin d deficiency can cause Schizophrenia. 

? Seasonal affective disorder is caused by a melatonin imbalance initiated by lack of exposure to sunlight. 

? Chronic vitamin d deficiency is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia because its symptoms are so similar: muscle weakness, aches and pains. 

? Your risk of developing serious diseases like diabetes and cancer is reduced 50% - 80% through simple, sensible exposure to natural sunlight 2-3 times each week. 

? Infants who receive vitamin d supplementation (2000 units daily) have an 80% reduced risk of developing type 1 diabetes over the next twenty years. 

 Shocking vitamin d deficiency statistics:

¶ 32% of doctors and med school students are vitamin d deficient. 
¶ 40% of the u. S. Population is vitamin d deficient. 
¶ 42% of african american women of childbearing age are deficient in vitamin d. 
¶ 48% of young girls (9-11 years old) are vitamin d deficient. 
¶ up to 60% of all hospital patients are vitamin d deficient. 6
¶ 76% of pregnant mothers are severely vitamin d deficient, causing widespread vitamin d deficiencies in their unborn children, which predisposes them to type 1 diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and schizophrenia later in life. 81% of the children born to these mothers were deficient. 
¶ up to 80% of nursing home patients are Vitamin d deficient?
