Hello Dr,

Masha Allah. Iam really happy to have found your blog in times of need. I hate alopathy and was searching for some home remedy for dandrfuff and hair fall. Will try yours, insha Allah. If you won mind, can you help me with one more issue. I see blood clots in my nose after coming to US.This is the first time I am seeing such problem with my health. Sometimes I see fresh blood and mostly clots...usually when I wake up, I notice. I feel a burning sensation when breathing. My friends say that due to dry air it should be like that and I do turn on Humidifier in nights. But no result. Is there any remedy for this? Would be glad if you post me a reply. Thank you.

Hi there,
Well happy to know that you have found my blog
useful.This was the purpose for starting this blog.I
have a remedy for you problem.This is a comman problem which i have seen in many people in cold and dryareas.So hope you'll follow my instructions.Take 2 drops of luke warm ghee and instill it to each nostril before bed time.How can you drop this might be your next question.That is sleep straight in a bed with pillow just below your shoulder and head lying tilted down wards and your shoulder will be higher than head
because of the pillow.Then take a filler and put 2
drops or 1 drop of warm ghee to 1 nostril at a timeclose other and inhale from same nostril.This willhelp for proper absorption and will lubricate your nostril.I would like to know where are you saying is ayurvedic medicine avilable at your place.Because you may need some internal medications also.One simple
thing is just befor bedtime.That is half an hour
before going to bed.drink warm milk added with 1 spoon of ghee in it.This will make your skin moist and kills excess vata.If you can get medicines tehre i will tell you a powder that will help a lot.Hope you fine great relief.I advice to do thid thro out the winter if possible or atleast for 15 days only night times.

Hi Saumya,

This is a wonderful site. Thank you and keep it up! I have a question - I have a 1.5 year old daughter. Do you have some recommendations for what to use instead of soap and shampoo?

Dear Dr,

Thanks for the earnest reply. Alhamdulillah! I stay in Edison, NJ. I have not seena any ayurvedic center here, nearby. Yet there are asian grocery shops. One more thing...Iam already little obese. Would it not increase my fat if i take ghee with milk?
Dr. Soumya Bhat said…
Hi Vini,
Well if its a kid i advice you to use besan or channa powder instead of soap.Apply oil and slightly massage the skin all over the body for about 5-10 mins allow it to absorb before bath and then use paste made out of besan with little water instead of soap.then for hair use any mild shampoo if you want or go for Shikaki or powder of such combination like meera etc works very well.
Dr. Soumya Bhat said…
Hi Yunus,
Well taking 1 tsp of ghee will never increase your weight.Well still if you feel that will increase your weight go for some mild exercise for about 15-20 mins daily that will counter cat the gaining weight problem.

Bet! Iam the lazy cat of the whole world...I never do exercise...kinda creepy abt it.But, as I watch myself in mirror, after coming to US...there is no other way out to relish the foods here...except by exercising for buring the extra calories...Uff...and Again..!!
Dr. Soumya Bhat said…
Hi there.
there is no other way to burn out the extra calories.Well only dieting may cut down your weight but that will be onlt temporary and harmful

Dear Dr. Sowmya
This is a wonderful site and I really appreciate ur work.
Let me jump to the serious issue, I'm turning 23 in coming June. I was having small forehead, thick and dense hair. I started loosing my hair bcoz of dandruff since 18 and forehead is getting high. I consulted various doctors and most of them preferred Selsun blue and even i took some medications. Now I'm in Uk, I started loosing lots of hair daily and seems like Dandruff is aggravated. I'm using Head & Shoulders regularly. I don't find any solution for the dandruff and the hair loss. How do I get rid of this? Help me pls. Kindly give me some diet and medical tips... Thanks a lot.

Dear Dr,

This is wonderful site with a lot of inforamtion. I hope you can solve my problem. My daughter 7years old, she has itchy scalp. when she was born, i had used Johnson & Johnsons product but her skin got dried and i had stopped using it. after 5 years I had forgotten and used Johnson shampoo for her hairwash. I didn't realise that her scalp gets dry. she is itching badly. I had noticed white patches on the edge of the scalp. Dermatologist treated her head for six weeks with some solution and 2 types of shampoos. It was not helped and she is still itching her head very badly all the time. I believe in Ayusrvedic and homeopahic medicines. would you please reccoemd a medication to solve the problm? I'll appreciate your reply.
