Dear Start with below recommended Homoeo medicine. To be continued until desired results are obtained. 1. Mixture of Berb Aquifolium Q + Echinacea Q + Azadirachta Q + Eugenia Jamb Q?100ML (Dosage: Dilute 10 drops of medicine with 1cup of water/Daily thrice/After food) 2. Sulphur 1M ? 1 drhm pills?Weekly one dose/6 pills/On empty stomach/Every Sunday 3. Psorinum 1M ? 1 drhm pills?Weekly one dose/ 6 pills/On empty stomach/Every Wednesday Some self-help techniques may also be useful: 1. Do not wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse. 2. Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse. 3. Don't try to "clean out" blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring. 4. Avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic (this means the product is less likely to block the pores in your skin). 5. Completely remove make-up before going to bed. 6. If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient. 7. Regular exercise cannot improve your acne, but it can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising as sweat can irritate your acne. 8. Wash your hair regularly and try to avoid letting your hair fall across your face. 9. Consume 4-5 ltrs of water daily. 10. Avoid fatty food, sweets, fried items, Chiken etc. 11. Take lots of fruits & green leafy vegetables.

The hormonal imbalance in our body trigger oil glands to produce excess amounts of an oily substance called sebum.

My hair growth is too slow and rough and more of hair fall can you give me a good suggestion.

Homeopath, Faridabad
My hair growth is too slow and rough and more of hair fall can you give me a good suggestion.
Hi. Let me tell you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent (which is called as 'Hairloss' rather). In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, may be because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up, subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. (There are different pattern and types of hairloss, because of different reasons like Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, etc.) Causes of hairrloss: Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or male/ female pattern baldness - hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger, use of bore water, any other underlying diseases, etc. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. 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 harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! 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/ 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. (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness. But, in case there are areas of baldness which has gone smooth and shiny, you will have to choose an option of Hair Transplant along with theses medications!).

All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone.

Dear lybrate user, hair growth occurs in cycles. Each cycle consists of a long growing phase (anagen), a short transitional phase (catagen) and a short resting phase (telogen). At the end of the resting phase, the hair falls out (exogen) and a new hair starts growing in the follicle beginning the cycle again. Normally, about 40 hairs reach the end of their resting phase each day and fall out. When more than 100 hairs fall out per day, clinical hair loss may occur. Hair loss have many causes such as:- 1) shrinkage of the hair follicles due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 2) under-nutrition of the hair due to fungal infection on the scalp. 3) effects of radio therapy or chemotherapy. 4) nutritional deficiencies. 5) autoimmune diseases. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes surgical modes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months. You can start the following medications:- 1) take 5 drops of homeopathic sulphur 200, once in a week. 2) take 5 drops of homoeopathic selenium 200 every morning before brushing your teeth. 3) take 4 tablets from biochemic natrum mur 6x tablets, thrice daily. Just chew the tablets as those tablets are sweet in taste. 4) take homoeopathic mother tincture acid phos q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines may need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies after first month in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.

My father in law has undergone neck operation for removing a lump? Operation has been successful, but doctor has told him to take food which does not contain Iodine. Please . Provide list of food which does not have iodine.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some foods that contain iodine that you'll probably want to avoid are Iodized salt, sea salt and salty foods. ... All dairy products (milk, sour cream, cheese, cream, yoghurt, butter, ice cream) Margarine. Egg yolks.FOODS THAT ARE OK Non-iodized salt may be used as desired Egg whites Homemade bread made with non-iodized salt and oil (not soy!) instead of butter or milk or commercially-baked breads which do not contain iodate dough conditioners, dairy, or eggs Fresh fruits and vegetables Frozen vegetables Grain, cereal products and pasta without high iodine ingredients Canned fruit Natural unsalted nuts and nut butters (peanut, almond, etc) Sodas, beer, wine, lemonade, fruit juices Coffee or tea. But remember, no milk or cream and no soy-based non-dairy creamer! Popcorn popped in vegetable oil or air popped, with non-iodized salt Black pepper, fresh or dried herbs and spices, all vegetable oils Sugar, jam, jelly, honey maple syrup Matzoh crackers ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES Avoid restaurant foods since there is no reasonable way to determine which restaurants use iodized salt. Consult your doctor before discontinuing any red-colored medication or any medication containing iodine (i.e., Amiodarone, expectorants, topical antiseptics). Avoid all herbal supplements (especially when one is not sure how much iodine they contain Seafood (fish, shellfish, seaweed, kelp)
