Iron plays a key role in manufacturing hemoglobin, the part of the blood that carries oxygen to your body’s organs and tissues. When your hemoglobin is at a healthy level, oxygen is properly dispersed. This means your scalp is getting a good flow of blood, which will stimulate and promote hair growth. Adding more iron to your diet doesn’t mean you have to feast on liver day in, day out, but when you’re craving something sweet, remember that dried fruits (like raisins) and cherry juice are packed with iron. Eggs; dates; raisins; dark green, leafy vegetables such as kale; and whole-grain cereals are all high in iron. Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron, so fruits such as oranges, strawberries and lemons should be on your grocery list of foods that prevent hair loss.

Milk and other dairy products are rich sources of calcium and vitamin d. Vitamin d helps the body absorb calcium, so it is important that you consume it along with calcium-rich foods. Since hair is made up mostly of protein, it is necessary that protein-rich foods are supplied to the body to keep the hair healthy. Calcium- and protein-rich foods include yogurt, cheese, tofu, eggs and soy milk.

I am having psoriasis how can I get cure.
Psoriasis can be controlled well with medications and goes into remission. But one cannot guarantee that you will never ever get skin lesions again. Its like giving a guarantee to a diabetic that you will be cured n never require medicines. But psoriasis unlike diabetes does not require continuous medications. If very mild lesions and localized it can be managed by topical therapy. If more lesions or severe lesions then oral treatment or light therapy is required depending on type of lesions and systemic fitness of individuals. But apart from psoriasis treatment, one needs to also do some lifestyle modifications like maintaining a n ideal body weight and good physical activity. As a more than normal body weight may respond slowly to treatment and may have more frequent or more severe rashes. Another important life style modification is stress reduction- consider yoga and pranayams. The common triggers for exacerbation of psoriasis are infection, stress, drugs (propranolol, lithium, sometimes pain killers, antimalarials.), sudden withdrawal of steroids. Psoriasis also tends to exacerbate in winters. General measures include intake of plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and sea foods (oily fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids like salmon), a balanced diet, weight reduction if overweight n maintaining within ideal body weight as far as possible, if already diabetic, hypertensive or deranged lipid profile, then their treatment and good control. Consult a dermatologist for management of skin lesions. Take treatment and when in remission you can be completely off treatment and if ever notice any new lesions again start treatment early for early disease control and remission and for a better quality of life. Never continuously take the oral treatments of psoriasis without dermatologist prescription.

I have pimples problem on face. please advice me to remove. And to get a pimple free clear face.
Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. In order to stop the formation of pimples the aforesaid four causes should be terminated. Now the bitter truth is neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.
