Skin and Hair Problems Treatment
The skin is the body’s largest organ; an average person’s skin weighs 4kgs (9lbs) and covers an area of 2 square metres (22 sq feet). The skin has two main parts: the superficial epidermis whose thickness ranges from 0.1mm on the eyelids to 1mm on the soles of the feet. The epidermis contains no blood vessels, its most superficial layer is the dead, dry horny layer which is constantly shed, contributing to the dust in our homes. The dermis lies beneath the epidermis supporting and nourishing it and providing immunity and other functions.
From the point of view of prescribing homeopathic treatment, eczema and psoriasis can be considered together. They nicely illustrate some of the principles of homeopathy: one of three homeopathic medicines will help in many cases, but the treatment must be individualised if it is to succeed. The three medicines are: Arsenicum album, Graphites and Sulphur. Homeopathy is holistic: to treat a skin problem, one has to look at the whole person, not just at their skin.
Skin is the biggest organ of the human body. Skin, according to Ayurveda, has seven layers. It is located not merely peripherally but extends itself to the deeper levels of the body. For this reason skin diseases have deep rooted causes; therefore its remedies also have to be penetrative. That is, most skin diseases are, rooted deeply into various dhatus or tissues like fat, muscles, blood etc. Modern skin treatments depend on external applications of creams or oils. They may help symptoms disappear temporarily as they never reach the deeper layers of the skin. Whereas, Ayurvedic treatments are not mere ‘skin deep’, it goes to the roots of the problem. Ayurveda always tries to root out the disease by treating it specifically according to the causes of each disease. Ayurvedic skin treatments may take a few weeks to show up signs of cure, but you can be sure about its permanent solutions.
Homeopathic and natural remedies for hair restoration do not simply tackle the symptoms of hair loss, but they treat the deficiencies that are at the root of the issue, providing the body with the tools required for the immune system to restore and heal itself, creating a long-term solution without the undesirable side effects that can result from allopathic medicine. One of the best advantages of homeopathic treatment is the prevention of further loss generally within 4-6 months of beginning the treatment.
According to Ayurveda, the hair is derived either as a by-product or produced as a breakdown product of Asthi (bone tissue). Any disturbance in this tissue metabolism, which very much depends on the digestive fire, can affect the health of the hair. To a certain extent, the quality of hair depends on the body constitution.
