I am 28 Year old man. I am suffering from Hair loss. Though I have not developed visible bald patches on my head still the hair loss rate is very high. Hair density has become very less on my Head. Currently I am applying onion juice on my scalp because I heard that it help is controlling hair loss. Is there any other treatment in Ayurveda which helps in controlling hair loss and grow more hairs?

Brief Answer: Preventive Aspect and need more details. Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and following considerations are required from your side for Ayurveda line of Management. 1. Since you were/are suffering from Asthma attacks for quite a long duration - are you using steroid preparations? 2.Please revert back with above concerns for treatment aspect, in the meantime preventive aspect is given below i. Avoid too much exposure to sun. ii. After bath make sure you avoid vigorous toweling of hair, let them dry naturally. iii. Make less choice for synthetic hair oils, hair coloring, bleaching, styling and use of dry blowers. iv. Avoid excessive exposure to sun, heat, wind, dust, anger, stress, anxiety, v. Avoid oily, fried, spicy, hot, fermented and stale food. vi. Proteins are essential for antibodies production so milk, egg (white), beans, yogurt, soymilk, pumpkin, squash,watermelon,peanuts,almonds, if non-vegetarian (meat) are choices vii. mango, carrots, cantaloupe, egg yolk,apricots,pumpkin,papaya, are ideal viii. Vitamin C: is needed for proper functioning of immune system: amla is good option. ix. Vitamin E: is a powerful anti oxidant thus peanuts, dried apricots, cooked spinach taro root can be taken x. Soap nut (reetha) and shikakai along with Bhringraj and Neelini oil acts as natural conditioner and XXXXXXX you can use it safely. PS.Falling of hair could also be due to over active thyroid, so please check with your Laboratory/Attending Doctor regarding Thyroid function test (TFT) and Hemoglobin level. .You need to Consult a Trichologist [if investigations comes normal]for your hair loss to rule out any other pathology, in the mean time take diet rich in Vitamin A i.e. Yellow food-drink-vegetables-fruits {papaya, yellow squash, mango, carrot, spinach, yellow of egg,pumpkin,cantaloupe,apricot} Do let me know if further clarifications are required, so that treatment aspect can be discussed Dr. Munish Sood Consultant & Physician Naimittika Clinic.

Brief Answer: Investigations and Trichologist Opinion. Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for reverting back with your consideration. 1.Since you are taking Asthalin [salbutamol]Rotacaps whenever the attack occurs which means you are using medicine in bronchodilator form [which are the fastest bronchodilators when inhaled], thus use of steroid is out of question [because use of steroid is associated with hair loss]. 2.Since you are using it in between attacks make sure you & your attending Physician have ruled out other medical issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid, heart problems, and potassium level in your blood. [people with high blood pressure and high cholesterol level taking the said drug have reported hair loss, so make sure you have these values under normal] 3.Again if the laboratory investigations come normal you need to consult a Trichologist first for your hair loss to rule out any other pathology, in the mean time you can follow these guidelines: i. diet as mentioned earlier. ii. Make a paste of Hasti dant masi [available with grocery shops] and rasont [concentrated extract of berberis species] in goat’s milk and apply on scalp. . Apply bhringraj oil on head. . fruit of amla:2, baheda fruit: 1, harad fruit: 2, pulp of mango seed:5, old mandur: 10gm: take all these contents and after mixing them put them overnight in an iron pan and apply on scalp the next morning. 4.For Asthma I usually recommend following guidelines to my patients on the basis of “प्राणवह स्रोतस व्याधि ” [PRANVAHA SROTAS VYADHI] .In the acute phase, the goal of the treatment is to relieve the distress in breathing. In the later phase, steps are to be taken to eradicate the disease. .If Attacks are frequent inspite of inhaled bronchodilator combination; use mast cell stabilizer. [talk with your attending Doctor regarding this]. .Asthma is a psycho somatic disorder; so tranquility of mind is very important as part of treatment (Brahmi vati+sarpagandha Ghana vati at bed time with milk) .Deep breathing exercises. They help increase lung capacity and also create awareness of the lungs and breathing process. . For repeated attacks, change of weather i.e. advise holiday in a dry climate .Avoid deep fried foods. .Avoid too cold foods .Avoid sour foods(non fresh curd, sour lassi,srikhand,raw onions) .Avoid sour fruits(Citrus:lemon,orange,mosambi) .Take a glass of warm water early morning, take warm drinks often like tea,coffee,soups .For Breakfast and snacks: bread sandwiches, idli,corn flakes, biscuits, sweet fruits like XXXXXXX mango,papaya and dry fruits .For meals: roti,chapati,palak,methi,cabbage,salads(beet,carrot,cucumber) .Cooking should use minimum oils. .Avoid heavy meals, eat small frequent meals and take early dinner .Avoid sleep for at least 2hrs after meals. .keep bowel movement regularly .mix powdered salt and karpoor in warm ghee and massage between the shoulder blades. . medicine for the same can be couriered [at your discretion] PS. .Since Onions are high on sulphur content, thus juice of onions is capable of stimulating hair growth as sulphur helps in increasing blood circulation. .either use onion singly or as onion-honey or onion –rum concoction.
