Hi Rajasekaran,

Improve water intake, simple exercises and Pranayama in the morning can completely solve this problem. Calculate the fiber intake. Reduce rice and improve wheat and green gram in diet. Add stool softeners like guava, pears in diet. These habits will improve the consistency of the stool which would reduce the frequencies in the morning.

Medicines like Abhya Arishtam – 5 ml thrice daily after food or Dhanvantharam gutika 2 numbers after food with warm water or 1 Conlax capsule at bed time does help. Regular intake of Noni 15 ml + 45 ml of warm water twice daily before food improves the condition in no time.

Hi Nikhil,

As i discussed earlier hair fall is not just related to scalp or hair. It is related to the whole body’s nutritional requirements. Watch your diet, calculate the amount of water you drink and most importantly avoid alcohol, smoking habits.

Improve greens in the diet, fresh fruits helps a lot. Do not drink juices eat fruits as such.

Ayurveda medicines like Kasis (101) – 250 mg thrice daily after food with warm water and Keshmani capsules 1 capsule thrice daily with warm water helps.

External application of Keshmani oil and Keshmani shampoo for scalp wash.

As a home remedy external application Amla powder + fresh curd as external application followed by warm water wash twice or thrice a week helps a lot.
