I am 21year male suffering from acne and acne scars on my face for past 2years. I have taken homeopathy treatment also but no improvement is there, I also drink plenty of water.

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Agra
Hello. The most effective remedy for such problems without any condition of side effects is" aloe vera" pulp/juice. Consume at least 4-5 spoons of aloe vera juice/pulp everyday empty stomach! secondly apply aloe vera pulp/juice on your face each day as well. Remember that your intestines and stomach has everything to do with your skin so make sure you are keeping them detoxified and clean! for the detoxification of your stomach drink luke warm water after you wake up in the morning sitting in sukhasana (chaukdi) position. It is even advisable that you rinse your mouth with luke warm water and pulp it in. Keep yourself hydrated with lots of water. You can even apply multani meeti along with gulab jaal (easily available in the market). Keep yourself away from any kind of processed food, white flour (maida) as well as heavy oily/spicy food. For your acne scars and spots -. Naturopathy believes that your own body can cure your health related problems in the most effective manner. It is advisable that you put saliva of your own mouth on your black spots/scars each morning after you wake up. It may sound weird or stinky but trust me it is the most advisable natural remedy for black spots that too without any side effects. Secondly you can also apply fresh cream (malai) of fresh milk on your face every day and rinse it after keeping for about 15 minutes. You can also apply multani meeti with rose water on your face for 15 minutes. Thanks.

I want shiny & growth able hair can you suggest me how can I maintain it? please answer me for doing ayurveda treatment.?

M.D (HOMEOPATHY), MBA (Healthcare)
Homeopath, Gulbarga
Dear patient, Hair fall / baldness and grey hairs are because of lack of beta carotene. Now it's not too late for you to get right treatment. Now You need to take HairRoot Active Hair oil with hair strengthening homeopathic medicines to control grey hairs and check hair fall quickly. How to Prevent Hair fall & Grey Hair Having seen the natural remedies that can reverse graying of hair and that can increase growth of black hair, let?s see the change in habits that can help you ensure that you don?t get grey hair anytime in the future either. 1. Quit Smoking The major reason for growth of hair fall & grey hair prematurely is that the body starts to age prematurely. Smoking is a bad lifestyle choice and causes the body to age before time. The habit leads not only to grey hair but also to a wide variety of complications in life and therefore, quitting it remains integral. 2. Avoid Junk Food, Coffee and Alcohol Coffee, alcohol and junk food all are devitalizing and excessive usage of these items usually leads to premature aging. As a consequence, you start to look older than normal and your jet black hair start to turn grey. So, if you?re serious about preventing hair fall & grey hair growth then you would have to avoid junk food, coffee and alcohol as much as possible. 3. Ease Stress As already mentioned in the causes, too much stress can cause hair fall & premature grey hair. People who work consistently under pressure, stress and tension should try yoga and other relaxing techniques so as to avoid premature aging and graying of hair & hair fall. 4. Exercise A healthy and fit body works naturally to keep everything in shape. Exercising regularly can keep you fit and healthy and can improve blood flow to your scalp as well. This results in better hair growth and in prevention of graying of hair as well. 5. Keep a Healthy Diet A healthy diet ensures that your body gets all the nutrients it needs to function properly. A proper diet so as to prevent grey hair & hair fall should incorporate food items that are rich in minerals and vitamin A along with iron. Yogurt and cereals are rich in these nutrients while green vegetables and yellow fruits are equally great sources too. Such a diet aided with regular water intake usually ensures that you don?t get premature grey hair. 6. Take Supplements Another measure which can help with preventing grey hair & hair fall & white hair is the use of such supplements which are rich in the 8 B complex vitamins. You can either buy a multivitamin that comes with all of the B complex family vitamins or you can get a pill that has all the B complex vitamins for this purpose. However, if you think that such supplements would be out of your range then you should go after a product that has Vitamin B5 as deficiency of Vitamin B5 is one of the major reasons for premature graying of hair & hair fall.

If caffeine makes you alert, you should continue with that for alertness. Armodafinil is used for those with sleeping disorders, excessive sleepiness, caused by narcolepsy. It has many side effects like, dizziness headache anxiety skin rash etc.

Kindly suggest after c session cream or medicine to remove stretch marks n get previous stomach shape. And also health supplements.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
There's no way to prevent stretch marks. There are no products on the market that can prevent them, Creams that claim to work on stretch marks are applied to the external layer of skin. But they won't reach the layer underneath, which is the part that stretches. So There's no need to spend lots of money on creams and lotions. Make your Own Stretch Marks Removing Lotion:-For this, mix ¼ cup aloe vera gel and ½ cup extra virgin oil. Break open 6 Vitamin E capsules and 3-4 Vitamin A capsules and add the liquid to the oil and gel mixture. Mix all the ingredients and store it in a bottle. This is your natural lotion to remove stretch marks. Keep this bottle in the refrigerator. Apply daily on the stretch marks. Shake the bottle before use. ***Take Schwabe's Silicea Pentarken, 2 tabs ,twice daily for 1 month.** You should do yoga and exercises to get your previous shape.

Dear sir I have a problem of hair loss and baldness. I want to get rid of this problem.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
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! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

I have a corn in my feet. It is almost 3 months old. It was not giving any problem but now it has become a lot sensitive. It pains even if I just touch it slightest. I tried using corn calls for someone but it didn't workout much. I have heard that I should remove the corn root. But what are the other options.

1use pumice stone to rub off dead skin after a bath/or applying moisturising cream 2. Apply corn cap for few days and then try to rub off the corn gently with pumice stone 3. If no relief it has to be removed by chemical cauterization. Consult skin specialist 4. Wear properly fitted shoes and cotton socks instead of synthetic which may irritate skin.

My hair are falling for last 2 years, daily 40-50 falls. Please advice something.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

Precautions for care of your hair *Take nutritious healthy food *Have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. *Avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. *Use warm or cold water for bath and NOT very hot water. * Hard water is harmful. Boiling will reduce hardness. * When the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. * Use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair. *Your usual hair dye has large doses of ammonia, which changes hair texture, dries out the scalp and almost leads to hair fall. Natural products like Shikakai and Amla are better than chemical compositions of manufactured shampoos. *Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. We have good treatment in Homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. These medicines are given internally, promote healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Consult privately (Prime-Rs.149/)

Everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple, glowing and blemish-free. Homoeopathic treatment aucare complexion drops (wolfe dietri) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily. Glow-aid fairness cream (adven) apply in circular fashion in morning nd at night bloome-203 soap (bioforce) wassh face with this face wash before applying whitening cream suncare cream (bakson) apply 30 minutes before going outside and again reapply after 3-4 hour after washing with whitening soap.

General Physician,
Beer and its use on hair are expressed by many sources with the point that The malt and hops found in your beer are loaded with protein, which nourishes and strengthens hair. The nutrients found in beer can even help repair dried out damaged hair to its former lusciousness. ... Plus, the alcohol in the beer contains B vitamins that load up your hair with shine. It is like any folk medicines .Hardly anything can enter the hair root

If you have already acquired the infection then nothing can stop it from happening and if you have come in contact with your friend then it is very likely that you will have it the best thing is now to isolate yourself from other people so that it doesn't spread any further and take appropriate symptomatic treatment.
