Dear patient, calorie dense food should be incorporated in your diet like dried fruits, potato, sweets, nuts, jam jelly, banana or mango shake, porridge, badam kheer etc. leafy vegetables should be restricted in your diet as they reduce appetite. you should take 3 major meals a day and snacks in between. butter, margarine should be taken. Adequate amount of egg, meat, fish, milk should be taken as it help you for tissue building in your body.try to take 1 boiled egg at every morning. you should eat more food at each meal. Before taking meal you can walk for sometime as it help to you feel hungrier. Thanks...

Baldness (Alopecia Areata) and its Ayurvedic Treatment

Baldness (Alopecia Areata) and its Ayurvedic Treatment

Alopecia areata is stated as a baldness disorder where there is hair loss due to a mistaken attack of the immune system on the hair follicles (the region where hair growth starts). The damage which the hair follicles face is not permanent. However, the reason why the immune system attacks the hair follicles is still unknown. Although this problem is commonly seen in people below the age of 20, it may also be found in adults and children belonging to any age group. Men and women equally fall victim to this disorder.

Causes of Alopecia Areata-

It's yet not perfectly understood what causes alopecia areata. For some reason, follicles stop producing visible hair, resulting in smooth bald patches that can appear overnight. Researchers are trying to determine what triggers the disease, and whether it's from within the body or from environmental factors. There are no diagnostic tests available which can predict the onset and behavior of alopecia areata.

However, there may be some hereditary factors which play a role in hair loss, in about 20% of cases people with alopecia areata have a family member who are also affected. Below area few common factors which are known as a trigger for Alopecia areata.

  • Genetic tendencies

  • Environmental triggers

  • Medicines

  • Long illness

  • Exposure to chemicals

  • Nutritional deficiency

  • Thyroid dysfunction

  • Extreme Stress

  • Vaccines

  • Local skin disease

  • Pregnancy

Ayurveda Management-

Increased hair fall in ayurveda is termed as khalitya and is classified under shiroroga.

Romakupagata / keshamulagata vitiated pitta (bhrajaka pitta) along with vitiated vata leads to dis-lodgement or withering of the hair from the hair roots. Further to this, vitiated sleshma / kapha along with rakta will cover and causes obstruction to the hair root, which results in no further hair growth from that place.

A few ways of treatment to reduce hair fall and stimulate hair growth:

  1. Pitta Pacification: This type of treatment is stated as an effective ayurvedic treatment to enhance the digestive system including pitta pacification dietary chart and pitta decreasing ayurvedic medication. This therapy removes toxins from the biological system through effective herbs.

  2. Ayurvedic Oil Application: Jasminum grandifolium induced medicated herbal hair oil is highly effective for treating baldness.

  3. Panchakarma Therapy: Panchakarma is defined as five (pancha) remedies (karma) which involve ayurvedic measures to cleanse the body. This therapy is generally seen as a supplement to the whole therapy needed for treating alopecia. Specific suggestions of Panchakarma therapy are shirodhara (head massage with medicated oil) and Ksheera vasthi, which includes medicated enema (injecting liquid or gas into the rectum, to take out the harmful contents like toxins).

  4. Nasya: This therapy is characterized by the ayurvedic intake of medication through your nasal cavity which then eliminates the impurities from there. It is a very effective therapy for treating the signs of alopecia.

  5. Ayurvedic Diet: Ayurvedic diet is considered an essential treatment method for alopecia. Certain food products must be included or increased in the diet. These include:

    • Food with astringent properties (making skin less oily and reducing bleeding from minor abrasions), sweet and bitter.

    • Lentils, leafy green vegetables and pulses.

    • Herbal tea like liquorice tea and peppermint tea.

    • Seeds and nuts like soaked almond, sesame seed and sunflower seed.

    • Egg white, turkey, chicken, and fish.

Correct Way of Brushing Teeth
The correct way of brushing your teeth is to move your toothbrush in up and down/vertical motion and not in sideways/horizontal motion in anterior or front teeth. For posterior or back teeth move your toothbrush in round motion. Happy toothbrushing.

You may be having gynecomastia with obesity. Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal( hormonal) problems , metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia . Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision . It's a safe and near scarless procedure . Consult a plastic surgeon for that. You can go in for a private consultation where you can share your problems in more details along with the photographs also. For excess tummy , it can be evaluated and liposuction can be an option for that.

Hey. If you feel your throat is getting dry frequently, then try to drink plenty of water everyday. Sip small amounts of water through out the day. If at all you have any throat irritation or itchiness, then you can try doing warm salt water gargles. You can drink plenty of water/fruit juices or hot fluids like tea/ coffee/ soups, to get some relief. Take care.)

Sir, I am suffering from Sugar & B. P What food can I take in morning, Afternoon and Night.

Sir, I am suffering from Sugar & B. P What food can I take in morning, Afternoon and Night.
A diabetic person has to consume food like everyone else. However, total calories have to be restricted based on one's weight, sugar levels and amount of exercise done per day. You have not mentioned the sugar levels at all, secondly no info on level of physical activity. Further, you are overweight with a bmi of 27.7 kg/m2. Hence, your diet has to provide you a maximum of 1400 calories per day. I can not actually prescribe the whole diet here, but please keep in mind to avoid sweets, deep fried foods and fruits like mango, chikkoos, grapes and bananas. Consume more green vegetables and salads, whole grain flours, and eat more frequently but less quantity at a time.

Li'l bit drinking (60 ml 3 times a week) doesn't affect fertility. But heavy drinking for long time will finish your potency. But the little smoke you do with drink may seriously affect your sperm quality. By proper life style modification & therapy will do better.
