Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
For quickly reducing cholesterol, Garlic is the best food to reduce Cholesterol.
Also you can use the following herbs:

1. Capsule Garlik 2 caps thrice a day

2. Capsule Arjuna 2 cap twice a day

3. Capsule Triphla 1 capsule once a day.

Dear Dr XXXXXXX

Thanks for your reply.

Can garlic be taken raw in place of capsules ? if so how many can be taken at a time ? does it need to be chewed or swallowed ?

similarly triphala in powdered form ? in what form can triphala be taken ?

Also, I have issues like gradual loss of hair/ baldness in the crown of the head and gradual greying of hair in the front . are there any ayruvedic remdies for it ? Does rubbing nails reduce hairloss or help to regrow hair ?

I have a history of family baldness from my fathers side
Thanks,

XXXXXXX

Hello
As you have asked as follow up question..
1. You can take raw garlic instead of capsule and you should have to take10 to 20 grams per day. You can take it by chewing or making paste and take it with bread or any food.

If trifla upis available in the powder form, it’s better.
As for the baldness, these ayurveda remedies will help
1. Bhringraj ghan vati 2 tabs twice a day
2. Rasayan churna 1 gram twice a day.
3. Gunjadi tailam for external use.
