You could start with some exercises for the shoulder. Exercise - start with shrugging of shoulder up to 10 tines. Exercises - gentle pendular movements exercise - ststretching of shoulder and neck will help. For your neck you need to do isometric exercises.

Hi, lead a healthy lifestyle and care your hair externally. Both will give you result. 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 6-9 hrs 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/ bore water to wash the head rather use already boiled water or drinking 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. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. 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 medicines - schwabe's wiesbaden 200 & alfalfa tonic twice a day for 3 months. 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. Beside this, you can take one tablet of multivitamin folli hair once daily for 3 months.

FEVER -NOT ALWAYS INFECTION
#############################

Fever does not always mean presence of infection. There are many situations where fever may occur without any infection and hence needs no antibiotics.
Sepsis is a clinical syndrome, which results from the dysregulation of inflammatory response to an infection. The temperature is between 36°C to 38.30°C. Heart rate is often more than 90 per minute.
Symptomatic inflammatory response syndrome means a clinical syndrome, which results from dysregulated inflammatory response to any infections such as inflammation of the pancreas, inflammation of the vessels, clot formations in the veins.
Many antibiotics can cause fever; unless they are discontinued, fever will not subside.
Hyperthermia is a condition with elevated body temperature but it is not called fever. Examples are exposure to heat or heat stroke and in response to anesthetic drugs and anti–psychotic drugs.
Hyperthermia may not respond to anti–fever drugs.
When fever is more than 41.5°C, it is acute hyperpyrexia.
Hyperpyrexia is usually seen in patients with severe infections but it may also occur in brain hemorrhage. It responds to anti–fever drugs.
High temperature without infection is found in condition of hyperfunctioning of the thyroid gland.
Recreational drugs such as Ecstasy can also cause fever without any infection.
Mild fever can also occur after exertion.

Hi sir im losing my hair, what the precautions to be take to avoid hair fall? And lose hair will come again?

Hi sir im losing my hair, what the precautions to be take to avoid hair fall? And lose hair will come again?
You can wash the hair with a paste made from Neem leaves. This is particularly effective for hair loss caused due excessive build up of scalp oil or invasive skin infections. For restoring the alkaline balance of the scalp and preventing hair fall, you can follow this with washing the hair with apple cider vinegar. Other homemade pastes that can be very useful include a mixture prepared from adding honey and olive oil to some cinnamon (dalchini) powder.

What could be the reason for hair loss?
You could find a million products out there stating “We could help you stop your hair loss”. Chances are, You tried a few too. Ever thought what type of hair loss you are trying to treat? Do you even know what’s the reason for your hair loss?

Question is, ‘How a disease can be treated without diagnosing it?’ First what you need to do is identify the reason for your hair loss; hair care products can give you a 1000 reasons to use their product, but they still cannot diagnose the reason for hair loss in each & every individual.

Pattern hair loss(baldness)
The most common cause of hair loss among men is hereditary hair thinning brought about by the effect of hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This type of hair loss affects women as well leading to thinning of hair over the front part of the head .

Nutritional deficiencies – Proper nutrition is very essential for hair growth, so deficiency of proteins, iron, biotin, minerals etc lead to hair loss, hair breakage as well as reduced hair growth.

Acute illnesses – Severe illnesses like infection(viral fever, jaundice, typhoid) blood loss, trauma etc can affect your hair growth cycle. The hair fall may not be evident soon and appear 2-3 months after the illness. This can lead to alarming rates of hair fall producing severe anxiety to the affected.This is called Acute Telogen effluvium. Usually self limiting, but at times the hair loss will persist and continue for several years(chronic Telogen Effluvium).

Medication – Some of the medicines when taken for certain period can bring about excess hair fall. Especially the ones used for treating hypertension, depression, cancer chemotherapy, retinoids etc. Once you complete your medication period or stop using these meds, hair loss gets reversible and your hairs start growing again.

Internal problems – Hair loss can be a reflection of diseases affecting the internal organs like thyroid, liver, kidney etc. Diabetes and various anemias can also lead to hair loss.

Severe mental stress – Acute mental stress following death of a close relative, divorce, financial loss etc can also affect hair growth cycle which usually starts with in 2-3 months of incident.
Scalp diseases- Hair fall can also be associated with diseases affecting the scalp. Fungal and bacterial infections, dandruff, alopecia areata, lichen planus etc. can produce either patchy or diffuse areas of hair loss.

The best way to deal with hair loss is seeking the help of a dermatologist who can diagnose the exact reason for your hair fall. If you keep on wasting money on oils, shampoos or other so called products, your loss will be irreversible, both financially and psychologically.

Dear, it is mainly due to infection (mainly fungal) in your scalp, as skin of scalp is very little blood supply, so take time to remove infections, it comes in from of dandruff. For control on hair fall you have to control on dandruff and infection. So if you want cure. Consult privately.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.
