Allergies of any kind signify abnormal immunity which needs to be cured rather than just suppressing the itch temporarily. Homeopathy can help with this chronic prob without any side effects.

It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.

These are the methods to treat fastly pimples & marks: ��� 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. ��� 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.

Avoid combing hair with fine-toothed combs when wet. Although this is a tempting practice as hair straightens and de-tangles much easily if combed when wet, this is a common cause of breakage. The stress on the hair shaft is immense when the hair is wet resulting in weakened hair roots.

One of my friend is 22 years of age. He is having some sort of skin disease. Doctors says that it is psoriasis. After hearing this he is always sad and stressed as doctors say that no cure for this is still invented. In this skin problem he used to have patches nd scars kind of thing all over the body which bleeds after some days. This mainly occurs during winters, while the effect is reduced during rest of the seasons. Because of this he is always sad. Can you please tell whether any cure of this is there and if not then how it can be reduced to minimum.

Living with psoriasis can be physically and emotionally challenging. Homeopathic treatment for psoriasis has been found to be extremely effective. It stimulates the body's own healing potential by restoring the balance of the immune system. It will control the number and severity of lesions, minimize flare ups, improve your quality of life, reduce disability and in most cases bring about a permanent cure. As Psoriasis is an obstinate and chronic disease, there is no magical cure. The duration of treatment depends on duration and severity of psoriasis, general health and other associated diseases. Most patients observe positive results in about 4 to 5 weeks of treatment, though the complete curative process can take about 1 to 2 years. Lifestyle and Home remedies •Exposure your skin to the morning sun for about 15 minutes. Avoid sun exposure between 11 am to 4 pm. •Regular and quick bath with lukewarm water followed by application of coconut oil or olive oil to seal moisture in the skin. •Epsom salt bath is helpful.(Consult your physician before using it) •Wear cotton clothes. •Try to avoid infections, injuries to your skin, stress, smoking and intense sun exposure.

Hello, There are different types of LASER Therapies available in the market for hair removal. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. And later in few cases, maintenance sittings are also needed in future. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely. The rate varies from place to place and area to be treated (e.g. Rs. 500/ sitting for upper lips).
