Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

After undergoing two C-sections, there was a gap of two years and eight months before I experienced severe hair loss. To cure this, I took Lycopodium 15 drops twice a day for 15 days, alongside using a mixture of Jaborandi, Amla, and Arnica with coconut oil. Initially, there was a decrease in hair fall for a few months. However, the heavy hair fall has started again.

Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you start taking Sepia 30, taking five pills in the morning, at noon, and then take Wiesbaden 200, five pills at bedtime. For Arnica mother tincture, take ten drops and mix it with coconut oil (enough for one application). Apply this mixture to the hair roots thrice a week. Additionally, Fenugreek seeds are beneficial for hair. You can consume them in the form of ladoo (an Indian sweet) or in their raw form. Black sesame seeds are also good for hair, include them in your diet. Ensure your meals consist of nutrient-rich foods that promote hair health. Avoid frequently changing shampoos and oils. For a massage, you can mix coconut oil, castor oil, and sesame oil. You can also add Arnica and the Mother tincture to this mixture. Provide a follow-up to determine further medication and the duration of treatment. I hope this has helped you. Kindly follow up if you have more doubts.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You can safely take homeopathic medicines along with any other medications. There is no need to worry, as homeopathy does not pose any harm while breastfeeding. You can begin taking the prescribed medicines as I suggested, and remember to consume a diet that promotes hair health. Consistent intake of the medicines and a healthy diet will provide relief from your symptoms. I hope this has helped you. Kindly follow up if you have more doubts.

Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

I was inquiring about continuation of previous medications because during my first pregnancy, I experienced diabetes, which was successfully managed. In my second pregnancy, I developed high blood pressure. Currently, my diabetes is borderline. The doctor did not specify the duration for which I need to take the prescribed medications.

Kindly suggest.

Hi,

Welcome back to iclinq.com.

Occasionally, such conditions can arise during pregnancy, but they often resolve on their own. Apart from hair fall, do you have any other physical complaints? I suggest you start taking the medications for hair fall in addition to the ones you are already prescribed. I hope this has helped you. Kindly follow up if you have more doubts.

Thank you.
