Common Remedies to prevent Hair Loss

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

When I started losing my hair I was almost in a panic. For years, I tried just about every treatment for hair loss out there… Rogaine, Propecia, hair supplements, special shampoos, herbs and home remedies for hair loss but NONE of it worked for me.

Finally, I started researching and trying out every alternative treatment for hair loss I could get my hands on. These were techniques and natural approaches to hair loss that I ferreted out from every corner of the world. I studied everything I could find on hair regrowth, how to stimulate hair follicles, how to remove DHT, how to increase blood flow to the scalp. I studies the thyroid factor, the yeast factor, the stress factor, and every other known factor that can contribute to hair loss, no matter how obscure. And finally, all that studying started to pay off.

Premature hair loss or thinning can also be due to a wide variety of other causes. Most women lose quite a bit of hair in the two to three months after they deliver a baby, and this can continue for up to six months. One and a half to three months after severe stress, operation, infection, or high fever, a person may also lose a lot of hair. Likewise, two to three months after crash dieting with insufficient protein intake, hair may come out in handfuls.

As with male pattern baldness, hormonal changes and genetic predisposition are to blame. Although they do not usually lose as much hair as men do, women are also constantly searching for a cure for this distressing problem. All in all, more than two-thirds of all men and women have some type of hair loss or thinning during their lifetime.

Many prescription drugs can cause reversible hair loss. Cancer patients treated with certain chemotherapeutic drugs may lose up to 90 percent of their scalp hair, but it eventually returns after their treatment is finished. Birth control pills that contain high levels of progestin also can cause hair loss.

Homeopathic remedies for Lung infection

Monday, November 10th, 2014

The lungs are a vital part of the respiratory system and are absolutely essential for inhalation and exhalation of air in the human body. The process of breathing enriches the quality and the flow of blood, enhancing the manner in which all the bodily organs function. Normal body temperature varies from person to person, but in general, is 98.6. Having a fever is one sign that you may have a lung infection.

When we become ill or the respiratory system becomes irritated, this chest mucus, or phlegm is produced in larger amounts and the immunoglobulins work hard to fight off invading or foreign bodies.

Several other conditions can also produce chest mucus and subsequent other symptoms. Post nasal drip (PND), classified as the backward flow of mucus draining from the sinus cavities down the throat. The constant dripping associated with post nasal drip typically causes irritation and congestion, and may be accompanied by consistent urges to clear your throat and blow your nose. Irritants, dairy, dry climates, smoking, colds, flu and pregnancy may cause post nasal drip.

Some of the main causes of lung infections or respiratory diseases are pleurisy, pneumonia, cough, common cold, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. At times, people could suffer from bacterial lung infections, due to environmental or even occupational factors, which include long term exposure to toxins and air pollutants.

Many patients complain about having an increased amount of mucus when they have COPD. When a lung infection is present, however, mucus production not only increases in amount, but generally gets thicker and stickier, and changes in color. It can also have a foul odor to it.

How your hair can be damaged?

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Although scalp hair is hardy, and can withstand a lot of abuse, it can be damaged by too much or inexpertly applied perming, dyeing, bleaching and massage. The amount of beautying the hair can take varies from person to person. Occasionally the scalp is allergic to the dye and becomes inflamed and swollen. To prevent this occuring, the dye should be tested by applying it to a small area on the arm. If a patch of inflammation has developed, the dye must not be used on the hair.

Most people who bleach their hair do so with hydrogen peroxide. If the peroxide is repeatedly applied, it may make the hair brittle. If this happens the hair may turn rough, develop split ends, or become thinned or shortened.
