Hi doctor,

I am a 26 year old male. My weight is 127.87 Ibs and height is 5'6". My problems are gray hair and hair fall. I have an allergy to dust, perfume, and smoke. Sometimes, I have breathing problems and cough in the early morning, I am working in shift. I am suffering from constipation too. My blood sugar is normal and my BP is 120/80. My blood group is O positive. There is no sugar or albumin found in my urine. For my breathing problems, I am taking Montek-LC. But, there is no complete relief. Please suggest me some treatment.



Welcome to

The main reason for premature graying of hairs and hair fall is stress due to rotation shift. So, try to fix your shift. Take hair nourishing food like dried grapes, dates, fig, curry leaves and spinach. Avoid curd and pickle. Try to reduce your salt intake.

Take Triphala Churna (Amlaki, Haritaki, and Vibhitaki.) 1 teaspoon mixed with little ghee and more honey at bedtime for constipation. Tablet Asthiposhak (Kukkutandatvak bhasma, Asthisamhruta, Arjuna, Shuddha Laksha) 2 tablets after food twice a day for hair fall.

Drink milk after boiling with a pinch of turmeric and pepper. It will improve your immunity and will help for hair growth too. But, it is common for everyone that 100 strands will fall every day. Use mild herbal shampoo to wash your hair twice a week. You can also apply Neelibringadi Thaila (Neeli, Bhringaraja, Coconut oil) in your scalp 1 hour before hair wash or on the previous night.
