How to protect yourself from the sun without chemicals?
With the weather getting warmer by the day and the sun feeling so good to soak up, it’s time to think about the effects it can have on our skin. While many moms and dads, beach goers, and just people in general instinctively reach out for sunscreens, this might be one time when it’s much better not to listen to your instincts. Sunscreens have come under fire of late because, too often, they are laced with chemical that do more harm damage than good – to you and the environment.
Luckily, that doesn’t mean that we have to give up the sun and stay inside all summer. There are some very basic, common sense ways to protect ourselves from the sun without the chemicals, and there are some simple, natural solutions for those moments when sunscreen is a must. Not only are we going to be healthier for this, but we are going to get to enjoy the sunshine and avoid the price we sometimes have to pay.
Food: It should come as no shock that diet can play a huge role in keeping our bodies healthy, including the largest organ: skin. There are certain foods we can be eating that will help protect the skin from within. Carrots and other foods rich in vitamins a and c, tomatoes and other foods rich in lycopene, and many, many other foods go into to providing the skin with all it needs to stay safe and cancer free. First and foremost, we need to provide a good diet.
Clothing: Sensible clothing choices just make … well, sense. While bikinis (and mankinis) are wonderfully fun in the sun, they can be used at select times, and the rest of the time we can use protective clothing. Light, long-sleeved shirts, wide-brimmed hats, and sarongs all make for great skin protection when the time for flaunting and frolicking barely frocked isn’t ideal. Cover the skin up, and the sun won’t damage it.
Shade: Whether it is umbrellas on the beach, finding a patio roof somewhere, or stretching out beneath a tree, it seems fairly sensible to seek the shelter of some shade. Not only does it keep us from overheating in the sizzling summer sun, but it keeps our skin from roasting in it. Most beaches, parks, and picnic areas have plenty of shady spots available, so settle in those and take the sun in healthy increments.
Diy sunscreen: Sunscreens can be pretty nasty for the environment, as well as our bodies. When we get all lathered up and dive into oceans, lakes, and rivers, much of it washes off and straight into the eco-system, where it then poisons plant and animal life. Sunscreens often have chemicals that are damaging to our bodies as well, so it is important to go with all-natural (vegan) products or to make our own diy versions, a much cheaper option.
After-sun treatments: Of course, no method is infallible or completely unforgettable, so accidents do happen from time to time. In these moments, it’s important to help our skin get back up to snuff as quickly and painlessly as possible. Natural after-sun skin products are generally filled with vitamins and minerals and lovely things that enable the skin to heal itself, or there are easy-to-do diy versions that are equally all-natural and effective, as well as affordable.
Timing: The sun is usually at its most wickedly brutal in the middle of the day, between about 10: 00 and 3: 00, so it is probably best to exercise more caution during these hours. This can turn out to be advantageous because beaches and parks tend to be a little less crowded outside these peak hours, so there will likely be more space to get out and enjoy the sunshine fully. Plus, it isn’t nearly as hot, and shade is usually much easier to find when the sun is at an angle rather than right overhead.
In the end, the right way to protect ourselves from the sun is to enjoy it — like with anything — sensibly. That means taking it in moderation, providing our bodies with the right nutrition for healthy skin, and protecting that skin from the excessive sun when necessary. Then, by all means, get outside and get some vitamin d.

Hair loss treatment for men:
Male pattern baldness, also called androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in men.
What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?
Main cause of male pattern baldness is:
1. Genetics, or having a family history of baldness.
2. Male sex hormones called androgens. The androgens have many functions including regulating hair growth.
3. However, sometimes baldness has more serious causes, such as certain cancers, medications, thyroid conditions, and anabolic steroids. See your doctor if hair loss occurs after taking new medications or when it’s accompanied by other health complaints.
Each hair on your head has a growth cycle. With male pattern baldness, this growth cycle begins to weaken and the hair follicle shrinks, producing shorter and finer strands of hair. Eventually, the growth cycle for each hair ends and no new hair grows in its place.
Who Is at Risk?
Male pattern baldness can begin in your teenage years, but it more commonly occurs in adult men, with the likelihood increasing with age.
Am I Losing My Hair?
If your hair loss begins at the temples or the crown of the head, you may have male pattern baldness. Some men will get a single bald spot. Others experience their hairlines receding to form an “M” shape. In some men, the hairline will continue to recede until all or most of the hair is gone.
Can Hair Loss Be Prevented?
“There is no known way to prevent male pattern baldness “This ia a common assumption but its not true. A theory is that stress may cause hair loss by increasing the production levels of sex hormones in the body. You can reduce stress by participating in relaxing activities, such as walking, listening to calming music, and enjoying more quiet time. healthy diet, modifying Llfestyle, healthy nutritious diet.
There over counter Ayurvedic & Unani Medicine which are timly tested & can be tried.
1) Jawarish Amla
2) Majoon Najah
3) Itrifal Kishnizi
4) Detoxifying Medicine

As a physician I have seen patient going into depression just because of minor sexual problems, some time just a little bit counselling done the magic, but it is a major issue face by our population.
A sexual problem, or sexual dysfunction, refers to a problem during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the man or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the activity. The sexual response cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution.
While research suggests that sexual dysfunction is common (43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of difficulty), it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. Fortunately, most cases of sexual dysfunction are treatable, so it is important to share your concerns with your partner and doctor.
What causes male sexual problems?
Sexual dysfunction in men can be a result of a physical or psychological problem.
* physical causes: many physical and medical conditions can cause problems with sexual function. These conditions include diabetes, heart and vascular (blood vessel) disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases such as kidney or liver failure, and alcoholism and drug abuse. In addition, the side effects of certain medications, including some antidepressant drugs, can affect sexual desire and function.
* psychological causes: these include work-related stress and anxiety, concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, and the effects of a past sexual trauma.
Who is affected by sexual problems?
Both men and women are affected by sexual problems. Sexual problems occur in adults of all ages. Among those commonly affected are those in the geriatric population, which may be related to a decline in health associated with aging.
How do sexual problems affect men?
The most common sexual problems in men are ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction, and inhibited sexual desire.
What are ejaculation disorders?
There are different types of ejaculation disorders in men, including:
* premature ejaculation: this refers to ejaculation that occurs before or soon after penetration.
* inhibited or retarded ejaculation: this is when ejaculation is slow to occur.
* retrograde ejaculation: this occurs when, at orgasm, the ejaculate is forced back into the bladder rather than through the urethra and out the end of the penis.
In some cases, premature and inhibited ejaculation are caused by psychological factors, including a strict religious background that causes the person to view sex as sinful, a lack of attraction for a partner, and past traumatic events. Premature ejaculation, the most common form of sexual dysfunction in men, often is due to nervousness over how well he will perform during sex. Certain drugs, including some antidepressants, may affect ejaculation, as can nerve damage to the spinal cord or back.
Retrograde ejaculation is common in males with diabetes who suffer from diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). This is due to problems with the nerves in the bladder and the bladder neck that allow the ejaculate to flow backward. In other men, retrograde ejaculation occurs after operations on the bladder neck or prostate, or after certain abdominal operations. In addition, certain medications, particularly those used to treat mood disorders, may cause problems with ejaculation.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to attain and/or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Causes of erectile dysfunctioninclude diseases affecting bloodflow, such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries); nerve disorders; psychological factors, such as stress, depression, and performance anxiety (nervousness over his ability to sexually perform); and injury to the penis. Chronic illness, certain drugs, and a condition called peyronie's disease (scar tissue in the penis) also can cause erectile dysfunction.
What is inhibited sexual desire?
Inhibited desire, or loss of libido, refers to a decrease in desire for, or interest in sexual activity. Reduced libido can result from physical or psychological factors. It has been associated with low levels of the hormone testosterone. It also may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some antidepressants; and relationship difficulties.
How are male sexual problems diagnosed?
To diagnose a man's sexual problem, the doctor likely will begin with a thorough history of symptoms and a physical exam. He or she may order other tests to rule out any medical problems that may be contributing to the
How is male sexual dysfunction treated?
Many cases of sexual dysfunction can be corrected by treating the underlying physical or psychological problems. Treatment strategies may include the following:
* medical treatment: this involves treatment of any physical problem that may be contributing to a man's sexual dysfunction.
* alopathic medications: medications, such as cialis, levitra, staxyn, stendra, or viagra may help improve erectile function in men by increasing blood flow to the penis. Promescent is a drug used to treat premature ejaculation. The topical spray is applied to the penis and contains lidocaine, reducing sensitivity and allowing for more ejaculation control. But results are not very promising rather it's a time being treatment.
* hormones: men with low levels of testosterone may benefit from testosterone replacement therapy.
* psychological therapy: therapy with a trained counselor can help a person address feelings of anxiety, fear, or guilt that may have an impact on sexual function.
Can sexual problems be cured? the answer is yes?
The success of treatment for sexual dysfunction depends on the underlying cause of the problem. The outlook is good for dysfunction that is related to a treatable or reversible physical condition. Mild dysfunction that is related to stress, fear, or anxiety often can be successfully treated with counseling, education, and improved communication between partners. With our time tested unani / ayurvedic medication any condition related with sexual disorders can treated successfully.
Can sexual problems be prevented?
While sexual problems cannot be prevented, dealing with the underlying causes of the dysfunction can help you better understand and cope with the problem when it occurs. There are some things you can do to help maintain good sexual function:
* follow your doctor's treatment plan for any medical/health conditions.
* limit your alcohol intake.
* quit smoking.
* deal with any emotional or psychological issues such as stress, depression, and anxiety. Get treatment as needed.
* increase communication with your partner.

The weight loss “industry” is full of myths. People are being advised to do all sorts of crazy things, most of which have no evidence behind them. Over the years, however, scientists have found a number of strategies that seem to be effective. Here are 26 weight loss tips that are actually evidence-based. 1. Drink Water, Especially Before Meals It is often claimed that drinking water can help with weight loss, and this is true. Drinking water can boost metabolism by 24-30% over a period of 1-1.5 hours, helping you burn off a few more calories (1, 2). One study showed that drinking a half liter (17 oz) of water about a half an hour before meals helped dieters eat fewer calories and lose 44% more weight (3). 2. Eat Eggs For Breakfast Eating whole eggs can have all sorts of benefits, including helping you lose weight. Studies show that replacing a grain-based breakfast with eggs can help you eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours, and lose more weight and more body fat (4, 5). If you can’t eat eggs for some reason, then that’s fine. Any source of quality protein for breakfast should do the trick. 3. Drink Coffee (Preferably Black) Coffee has been unfairly demonized. Quality coffee is loaded with antioxidants, and can have numerous health benefits. Studies show that the caffeine in coffee can boost metabolism by 3-11%, and increase fat burning by up to 10-29% (6, 7, 8). Just make sure NOT to add a bunch of sugar or other high-calorie ingredients to it. That will completely negate any benefit you get from the coffee. 4. Drink Green Tea Like coffee, green tea also has many benefits, one of them being weight loss. Green tea contains small amounts of caffeine, but it is also loaded with powerful antioxidants called catechins, which are also believed to work synergistically with the caffeine to enhance fat burning (9, 10). Although the evidence is mixed, there are many studies showing that green tea (either as a beverage or a green tea extract supplement) can help you lose weight (11, 12). 5. Cook With Coconut Oil Coconut oil is very healthy. It is high in special fats called medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently than other fats. These fats have been shown to boost metabolism by 120 calories per day, and also reduce your appetite so that you eat up to 256 fewer calories per day (13, 14). Keep in mind that this is not about adding coconut oil on top of what you’re already eating, it is about replacing some of your current cooking fats with coconut oil. 6. Take a Glucomannan Supplement A fiber called glucomannan has been shown to cause weight loss in several studies. This is a type of fiber that absorbs water and “sits” in your gut for a while, making you feel more full and helping you eat fewer calories (15). Studies have shown that people who supplement with glucomannan lose a bit more weight than those who don’t (16). 7. Cut Back on Added Sugar Added sugar is the single worst ingredient in the modern diet, and most people are eating way too much of it. Studies show that sugar (and high fructose corn syrup) consumption is strongly associated with the risk of obesity, as well as diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and others (17, 18, 19). If you want to lose weight, you should be cutting back on added sugars. Just make sure to read labels, because even so-called health foods can be loaded with sugar. 8. Eat Less Refined Carbs Refined carbohydrates are usually sugar, or grains that have been stripped of their fibrous, nutritious parts (includes white bread and pasta). Studies show that refined carbs can spike blood sugar rapidly, leading to hunger, cravings and increased food intake a few hours later. Eating refined carbs is strongly linked to obesity (20, 21, 22). If you’re going to eat carbs, make sure to eat them with their natural fiber. 9. Go on a Low Carb Diet If you want to get all the benefits of carb restriction, then consider taking this all the way and going on a low carb diet. Numerous studies show that such a diet (or “way of eating”) can help you lose 2-3 times as much weight as a standard low-fat diet, while improving your health at the same time (23, 24, 25). 10. Use Smaller Plates Using smaller plates has been shown to help people automatically eat fewer calories in some studies. Weird trick, but it seems to work (26). 11. Exercise Portion Control or Count Calories Portion control (eating less) or counting calories can be very useful, for obvious reasons (27). There are also studies showing that keeping a food diary and writing down what you eat, or taking pictures of all your meals, can help you lose weight (28, 29). Anything that increases your awareness of what you are eating is likely to be useful. 12. Keep Healthy Food Around in Case You Get Hungry Keeping healthy food close by can help prevent you from eating something unhealthy if you become excessively hungry. A few snacks that are easily portable and simple to prepare include whole fruits, a handful of nuts, baby carrots, yogurt and a hardboiled egg (or two). 13. Brush Your Teeth After Dinner Although I’m not aware of any studies on this, many people recommend brushing your teeth and/or flossing right after dinner. Then you won’t be as tempted to have a late-night snack. 14. Eat Spicy Foods Spicy foods like Cayenne pepper contain Capsaicin, a compound that can boost metabolism and reduce your appetite slightly (30, 31). 15. Do Aerobic Exercise Doing aerobic exercise (cardio) is an excellent way to burn calories and improve your physical and mental health. It appears to be particularly effective to lose belly fat, the unhealthy fat that tends to build up around your organs and cause metabolic disease (32, 33). 16. Lift Weights One of the worst side effects of dieting, is that it tends to cause muscle loss and metabolic slowdown, often referred to as starvation mode (34, 35). The best way to prevent this from happening is to do some sort of resistance exercise, like lifting weights. Studies show that weight lifting can help keep your metabolism high, and prevent you from losing precious muscle mass (36, 37). Of course, it’s not just important to lose fat. You also want to make sure that what is beneath looks good. Doing some sort of resistance exercise is critical for that. 17. Eat More Fiber Fiber is often recommended for the purpose of weight loss. Although the evidence is mixed, some studies show that fiber (especially viscous fiber) can increase satiety and help you control your weight over the long term (38, 39). 18. Eat More Vegetables and Fruits Vegetables and fruits have several properties that make them effective for weight loss. They contain few calories, but a lot of fiber. They are also rich in water, which gives them a low energy density. They also take a while to chew, and are very filling. Studies show that people who eat vegetables and fruits tend to weigh less (40). These foods are also super healthy and nutritious, so eating them is important for all sorts of reasons. 19. Chew More Slowly It can take a while for the brain to “register” that you’ve had enough to eat. Some studies show that chewing more slowly can help you eat fewer calories and increase the production of hormones linked to weight loss (41, 42). 20. Get Good Sleep Sleep is highly underrated, but it may be just as important as eating healthy and exercising. Studies show that poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity, being linked to an 89% increased risk of obesity in children, and 55% in adults (43). 21. Beat Your Food Addiction A recent 2014 study of 196,211 individuals found that 19.9% of people fulfil the criteria for food addiction (44). If you suffer from overpowering cravings and can’t seem to get your eating under control no matter how hard you try, then you may be a food addict. In this case, get help. Trying to lose weight without dealing with this problem first is next to impossible. 22. Eat More Protein Protein is the single most important nutrient when it comes to losing weight. Eating a high protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day, while helping you feel so satiated that you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day (45, 46, 47). One study also showed that protein at 25% of calories reduced obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, while cutting the desire for late night snacking in half (48). This is the single most important tip in the article. Simply adding protein to your diet (without restricting anything) is one of the easiest, most effective and most delicious ways to lose weight. 23. Supplement With Whey Protein If you struggle to get enough protein in your diet, taking a supplement can help. One study showed that replacing part of your calories with whey protein can cause weight loss of about 8 pounds, while increasing lean muscle mass (49). 24. Don’t Drink Calories, Including Sugary Soda and Fruit Juices Sugar is bad, but sugar in liquid form is even worse (50). Studies show that liquid sugar calories may be the single most fattening aspect of the modern diet. For example, one study showed that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to a 60% increased risk of obesity in children, for each daily serving (51). Keep in mind that this applies to fruit juice as well, which contains a similar amount of sugar as a soft drink like coke (52). Eat whole fruit, but use fruit juice with caution (or avoid it altogether). 25. Eat Whole, Single Ingredient Foods (Real Food) If you want to be a leaner, healthier person, then one of the best things you can do for yourself is to eat whole, single ingredient foods. These foods are naturally filling, and it’s very difficult to gain weight if the majority of your diet is based around them. Keep in mind that real food doesn’t need a long list of ingredients, because real food IS the ingredient. 26. Don’t “Diet”, Eat Healthy Instead One of the biggest problems with “diets,” is that they almost never work in the long term. If anything, people who “diet” tend to gain more weight over time, and studies show that dieting is a consistent predictor of future weight gain (53). Instead of going on a diet, make it your goal to become a healthier, happier and fitter person. Focus on nourishing your body, instead of depriving it.
Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia areata is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally.
What happens in alopecia areata?
Alopecia areata usually begins when clumps of hair fall out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp. In some cases the hair may become thinner without noticeable patches of baldness, or it may grow and break off, leaving short stubs (called" exclamation point" hair). In rare cases, complete loss of scalp hair and body hair occurs. The hair loss often comes and goes-hair will grow back over several months in one area but will fall out in another area.
When alopecia areata results in patches of hair loss, some time the hair usually grows back in a few months. 1 although the new hair is usually the same color and texture as the rest of the hair, it sometimes is fine and white.
About 10% of people with this condition may never regrow hair. As per alopathic experts says but with unani medicine its possible to have normal hair.
Results may take longer time if you have:-
- Have a family history of the condition.
- Have the condition at a young age (before puberty) or for longer than 1 year.
- Have another autoimmune disease.
- Are prone to allergies (atopy).
- Have extensive hair loss.
- Have abnormal color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails.
Because hair is an important part of appearance, hair loss can result in feeling unattractive.
In some people with alopecia areata, the fingernails and toenails become pitted-they look as if a pin had made many tiny dents in them. They may also look like sandpaper.
Alopecia areata can be" completely cured" & can be treated. Most people who have one episode will have more episodes of hair loss.
We at Dr. Khans clinic have more then 10 years of experience in treating alopacia areata. Appreciable results can be seen in just 30 days.
Don't drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories. Eat more often. Drink milk. Try weight gainer shakes. Use bigger plates. Add cream to your coffee. Take creatine. Get quality sleep.

Kindly suggest / recommend way out in detail to resolve weakness / little pain in below left feet, weakness in left knee and weakness in left buttock to resolve my problem while walking and while sitting on ground / on chair.
Three basics of diet plans:
Low carbohydrate weight loss plan: This plan is considered as the most common program to lose weight since the fact has shown that it fits many people. The main idea of this low carbohydrate plan is reducing the carbohydrate intake, as much as possible, in daily meals. Excessive consumption of foods containing lots of carbohydrate like grains and breads should be minimized. As the substitution, the carbohydrate can be taken from fresh fruits consumption.
One thing to remember about this diet is that the plan just restricts the amount of carbohydrate coming into the body; not eliminating all carbohydrate consumption.
Low fat losing weight plan: Besides the low carbohydrate, low fat plan is also effective for losing weight in quite short period of time; under a condition that the dieters obediently follow the rules of fat restriction. This diet is not easy to follow, but if dieters can manage it well, the result will be awesome.
Low calorie: In this diet plan, dieters will be informed about how much calories they are allowed to consume every day and what foods which are recommended. Along with it, regular exercise is commonly suggested to burn the excessive calories.
Commitment is important
Whatever weight loss plan you are following, it will not work well if you do not stick into it. The goal will likely be achieved when you obey the rule and follow the instruction patiently.
What is skin needling and how does it work?
Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and nonablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
What is skin needling used for?
Skin needling is effectively used for:
Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns
Fading stretch marks
Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
Dyspigmentation e.g in melasma
Tightening sagging skin.
Benefits of skin needling
Reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring therefore safe on ethnic or dark skin.
Suitable for thin and sensitive skin
The treatment can be performed in an office setting and does not need any extensive special training or expensive instruments.
The procedure is well tolerated and well accepted by the patients,
It is cost-effective, and can be done on areas of skin not suitable for peeling or laser resurfacing, such as near eyes.
As opposed to ablative laser resurfacing, the epidermis remains intact and is not damaged. For this reason, the operation can be safely repeated if needed.
Treatment does not result in a line of demarcation between treated and untreated skin, as usually occurs with other resurfacing procedures. This allows for specific areas of scarring to be treated without the need to “blend” or “feather” at the treatment edges.
The patient can resume regular activities within a few days, depending on the depth of penetration of the needles. Treatment options like laser resurfacing or dermabrasion are often associated with considerable morbidity and downtime from daily activities of the patient in the post-treatment period.
What is the skin needling procedure like?
The procedure is well tolerated. It takes a few minutes up to an hour to complete, depending on the area to be treated and the severity of the problem.
No lotions, makeup or other topical products are applied on the treatment area on the day of the procedure.
The medical professional then applies a numbing cream (topical) on the treatment area or injects local anaesthetic.
The skin is punctured in a specific pattern using a skin needling device. The device is rolled over the skin multiple times for best results.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound stimulating skin cell regeneration.
Depending on the condition treated it may take 5-60 minutes to complete the procedure.
A minimum of 4 weeks is recommended between two treatments as it takes that long for new natural collagen to form.
Skin needling is well tolerated by patients but dryness, scaling, redness and swelling may be seen after treatment, lasting for 1/2 days or longer, depending on the depth of penetration of the needles.
Sun protection for several weeks is recommended.
In the case of acne scars, after the skin needling procedure, the face should be cleaned with a gentle cleanser before bed. The next day, the face may be cleansed and makeup, lotions and other topical products applied as usual.
As the microholes close quickly, postoperative wound infection is rare.
Emollients or antibiotic creams may be prescribed, if considered necessary.
Rejuvenation of skin may be seen as soon as 2 weeks and as long as 6-8 months after the medical procedure.
Burn scars are slow to respond. It can take up to 6 months to 1 year to see the final results from a single treatment.
