Hello doctor,

I am a 37-year-old woman, taking Thyronorm 50 mg for thyroid issues. My weight is 110.23 Ibs and my height is 4.95". I face excessive hair fall with balded front head, stress and mood fluctuations. The body is overheated and has gastric problems also and have mild ulcers sometimes. I get tired quickly. I do yoga and meditation. I am taking the Triphala tablet for a month. Suggest any medication for the new growth of hair in the front head, and for stress and gas formation. For the past two months, I have disturbed sleep and mostly I wake up at 2:00 to 3:00 AM. By evening my energy is drained. Kindly suggest a good solution.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Hypothyroidism is one of the causes of hair fall and dryness. You should continue your previous medications. Flatulence, acidity, and indigestion depends on your food habits and lifestyle. Reduced digestive capacity may lead to such conditions. Stress and anxiety are associated with restlessness and sleeplessness. It can be managed naturally through ayurvedic medicines and yoga practices. You can quit your previous allopathic medicines gradually in tapered doses. I hope I have cleared all your doubts.

Thank you.
