Want to reduce weight. Is it advisable to use herbal life product for the same? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I am XXXXXX Hre
I am over weight
my relative advised to take Herbal life products to reduce weight
is it advisable
Any products advertised on internet, television or any other means have no scientific data proving its benefits.
As far as science is concerned, there are no evidence that diet and exercise help.
However some anecdotal reports claim that certain products have benefited its users.
do be diplomatic
i meant your answer is diplomatic
So you may take those products provided none of those ingredients do not cause general health problems.
Herbal life products seems to be one such product.
So my suggestion to you is you may use them.
But also follow a healthy diet
Dietary changes and exercise do not produce instant results.
Those may take few months (3-6 months) to show some changes.
Persistence and regularity is the key here.
can you please what needs to be done
May I know your age and gender?
And since when are you facing this issue?
Has this problem been recent in nature or you have had this issue since a while?
May I know approximately how many strands of hair do you lose in a day?
Let me explain.
Hair falls as a natural process. Old hair fall off and new ones come. If a person loses less than 100 hairs per day it is consider part of this natural cycle. Therefore normal.
So please do measure the amount of hair lost in a day if possible.
That being said, if the hair fall is very recent, say few days
then it is most like due to acute causes
Chronic hair fall where symptoms have been years together have genetic reasons along with multiple other factors.
What I suggest to (apart from measuring the hair lost) are as follows:
1. Manage your stressors adequately by means of regular diet, regular sleep and physical exercise.
(both these should be available at a nearby chemist/pharmacy)
I use Dove shampoo
twice or thrice a day shampooing for 3-6 weeks should be sufficient.
* I am unaware of the contents of DOVE, however
the shampoo I suggested are medicated shampoos
which have proven results in controlling dandruff and hair fall.
They are known to be good for hair health.
5. Avoid brushing / combing wet hair.
If your problem persist despite the above measures,
When used under the guidance of a doctor, it should surely take care of hair issues.
*Do not try this without the guidance/monitoring of a doctor.
Hope this suffices.
Do you have any other query?
one of the doctor from Health magic suggested me to use neutrogena and cetaphil
after using my skin went dark
and everybody started asking why your looking dull
so i stopped using the product
I started using fair n lovely
But many say fair n lovely is not a good product to be used
what would you advise
Sorry, I am not aware of any such claims. There were few reports which were concerning, but I am not aware of that being proved scientifically.
However any product when over used can be harmful
as human skin is designed as per the genes.
If your interest is lightening the skin colour/tone, the most effective remedy advised by dermatologist is
a. A good sunscreen
As the above do not produce instant results you may use any other product (herbal or medicated) for a short while and later switch on to the above.
I suggest consulting a dermatologist (either personally or online - via healthcaremagic) can help you.
Thank you very much:)
