I recommend that you try Puls 200 5 pills once a month for a few months. Reduce oily food. Get rid of dandruff if any. Relax and look out for a difference.

Nandan asked, Hi Doc, i have this problem of hair loss for the past 7 years. have tried everything under the sun. it is now to an extent that u could see my scalp if u look from above. my hair line is not receding but the density of hair has come down severely. considering the fact that my father is bald, do u think it is hereditary or can it be treated? for the past couple of years i am on minoxidil 5% and finasteride tab. could u help me pls. thank you sir!

Dr. Mukesh Batra answers, It appears that you are suffering from Androgenic Alopecia. This is a hereditary condition very common in males and gets progressively worse as you grow older. It needs to be correctly diagnosed. In some of our clinics, we have an imported machine called a Video-microscope which shows the condition of the hair follicle and also shows us the state of the hair shaft and the condition of hair. This enables us to provide treatment depending on the type of hair loss and the condition of the hair.

zarina asked, Hi Doctor is there any permanent treatment for Sinus in Homeopathy?

Dr. Mukesh Batra answers, Yes there is. Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses. This commonly gives rise to cold and headaches. It can certainly be treated with homeopathic medicines without puncturing the sinuses. You will need to consult a homeopath with your X-ray report. In the meantime, you may do some plain steam inhalation twice a day for temporary relief.

Raman asked, Dear Doctor, I have problem of anxiety towards a particular situation, like incidents of death of near ones or family members. Does homeopathy offer any solution to this?

Dr. Mukesh Batra answers, Anxiety Neurosis is a common problem in today's world. There are many medicines in homeopathy to overcome anxiety. A detailed case history is required. You may consult a homeopath personally.

You may go with all reports and the patient to our clinic in Pune. Kapil Towers A, 45, Dr. Ambedkar Road, Opp Old RTO, Opp. Indian Airlines Office, Pune 411011, Phone Number: 66016326 after taking a prior appointment.
