Is It Good To Take A Shower Everyday

Hi. I am a 30 year old female suffering from an unknown condition and I am afraid and would like immediate advice. Last year my body would randomly began to itch all over. It would last for a few hours. It happened about every two weeks. Currently, my condition has gotten worse. My body itches all over everyday and it lasts for an extended period of time including overnight. When this happens, I begin to see dead skin form all over my body and it sometimes become scaly. My eyes begin to burn and itch at the same time. When I shower I scrub the dead skin off of my body and lotion it very well after. However, the dead skin reappears as it is doing now. Do you have an idea as to what is happening to me?

Seems "charm kushthh" which can be/ or is equated to psoriasis/ charm rog/ fungal. Better if you could send photo of scaling skin. It is tough to cure but not impossible by ayurved. Initially you may go for (1). Azadirachta indica, curcumin, rubia cordifolia powders and mix them equally. Take 1 teaspoon thrice a day with water. (2). Mahamanjishthhadi kwath 20 ml thrice a day. (3). Apply marichyadi or mahamarichyadi tel locally all over affected skin at least once a day. This combo will go on irrespective of what photo you send. You may find these herbs easily if you r in india. If you can not make it yourself, we may send you. Pl consult on this chat.

Frozen shoulder is the common name for adhesive capsulitis, which is a shoulder condition that limits your range of motion. When the tissues in your shoulder joint become thicker and tighter, scar tissue develops over time. As a result, your shoulder joint doesn’t have enough space to rotate properly. Common symptoms include swelling, pain, and stiffness. You’re more likely to have the condition if you’re between the ages of 40 and 60symptomsyou become aware of a frozen shoulder when it begins to hurt. The pain then causes you to limit your movement. Moving the shoulder less and less increases its stiffness. Before long, you find that you can’t move your shoulder as you once did. Reaching for an item on a high shelf becomes difficult, if not impossible. When it’s severe, you might not be able to do everyday tasks that involve shoulder movement such as dressing. Shoulder exercises and stretches regular exercises and stretches can keep your shoulder strong and flexible. A few things to remember before swinging in to exercises: •stop any exercise if you have more shoulder pain. It may be too soon for you to try. •watch your form. Exercising incorrectly can also cause or worsen shoulder problems. •warm up, even before deep stretching. Light shoulder rolls, gentle movements, or even a warm shower are all ways to warm up your muscles before exercise and stretching. Pendulum stretch for range of motion•stand and bend at the waist. •let your arm on the injured side hang straight down. •keep your neck relaxed. •move your arm in a circle up to 20 times. •do once or more times in a day. Overhead shoulder stretch•sit or stand to do this shoulder stretch. •intertwine your fingers in front of you. •bend your elbows and raise your arms above your head. You can also place your hands on your head or behind it. •gently squeeze your shoulder blades together to move your elbows back. •continue for up to 20 repetitions. Repeat 5 to 10 times a day. Physical therapyphysical therapy is the most common treatment for a frozen shoulder. The goal is to stretch your shoulder joint and regain the lost motion. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to nine months to see progress. A home exercise program of gentle range of motion exercises is important. If you don't see progress after six months of intense, daily exercises, speak to your doctor about other options. Medicationsto treat the pain and reduce your joint inflammation, your doctor may recommend an anti- inflammatory medication like aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium. A steroid injection you’re your shoulder joint may also help. Home careplacing an ice pack on your shoulder for 15 minutes at a time several times per day can help to decrease pain. If you’re working with a physical therapist, the exercises can be done at home. Your physical therapist will provide instructions on the types of exercises you must do, how often to do them, and when to push yourself harder. Most people with a frozen shoulder can improve their condition without surgery.

Do you have dandruff problem also. Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo. 1. Vitamin for hair loss.(a, b and c) 2. Enrich diet with protein. 3. Scalp massage with essential oils. Take coconut oil and heat it up so that it is warm, but not too hot. Massage your scalp with this hot oil for a few minutes. 4. Avoid brushing wet hair. 5. Keep yourself hydrated. 6. Put on a shower cap for an hour then shampoo your hair. It helps to stop hair loss and promote hair growth. 7. Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hairline. 8. Ditch hair tools that use high heat. 9. Be wary of chemical processing. 10. Drink water to hydrate your body. U can mix arnica q (25 drops) and jaborandi q (15 drops). Apply on scalp. Wash hair next day. Do it twice a week for weight gain you can try this - 1. 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic). Or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U can eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits (eat whole fruit not juice), a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk, a cheese cube/slice/ banana shake etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. 7.take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water9. Everyday preferably sleep on same time 10. Maintain active life style. Exercise to gain weight swimming:jogging:lunges and squats:bench press:deadlifts:yoga:pull-ups:upright barbell rows and dumbbell shoulder press lifting weight is important too, so that the additional calories can be used to build muscle instead of just adding fat. 11. Don't smoke. Smokers tend to weigh less than non-smokers, and quitting smoking often leads to weight gain.

The following is a list of a few treatments to cure night fall, you might mix and match them as per your preferences and convenience to explore some remedy in your case. Mix 2 teaspoons of fenugreek foliage juice with 1 tea spoon of honey and take this mixture everyday during bed time. If night fall is associated with sleeplessness, you might try consuming three cups of curd everyday which will induce good sleep. Mix bottlegourd juice and sesame oil in equal measures and apply this preparation on the scalp before bed time. Taking a cold shower preferably 30 minutes before bedtime can aid in preventing wet dreams to an extent. A cold bath can relax the mind and body and promote restful sleep, leaving no space for nightfall.
