natural remedy for thinning hair?

hey there! is there any natural way (like applying olive oil ,etc)of stimulating new thick hair growth in balding/thinning hair areas? pls help!

vti answers:

This NATURAL, safe remedy is the ONLY ONE I’ve found that truly stops loss almost straight away and also forces new growth. Massage thoroughly with olive or any natural oil – then brush vigorously using a palm held brush with stiff short bristles so you really feel it stimulating scalp (90 /100 strokes or even more each day focusing on where loss is). Brushing before you apply oil is equally OK. Will heal scalp and unplug blocked hair ducts that cause loss – they are the painful small itching spots. A little shedding and breakage may occur at first but quickly stops as brushing makes hair stronger and better anchored. It will grow fast, thicker and It will force the new growth. Initially new hairs will be weak looking and sparse. Don’t be concerned if brushing uproots them as they will re-appear even stronger. My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower and sparse at first then each month it became denser. It demands perseverance week in, week out to get the same results.
Thinning, premature graying can be caused by many shampoos, hair products that contain countless hair, scalp and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients Washing hair too frequently is another cause – removes beneficial natural oils and contributes to loss. Find “Non harmful shampoos, etc” with Google searches. Some will come up and be expensive or only available on-line so refine search by adding “low cost” and “available in stores” Find in health food stores, pharmacies and Walmart. Wish you the best. I can be emailed.

Mandy asks…

Why does the FDA seem so afraid of natural remedies?

They always seem to downplay anything natural. As if there is no way it could possibly work. They say there is no scientific evidence but yet they also say that certain products have not been evaluated by the FDA. So answer this: How do they know that there is no scientific evidence if the product has not been evaluated? And yet these harmful drugs are advertised on TV as if we have to take them or something! You cannot watch a football game without someone telling you how to enlarge you penis! “Take this for Herpies!” I don’t have herpies! Then they say it doesn’t cure herpies! well what does it do? “Side effects may include sudden death!”
Regina Wrong answer! The Japanese and Chinese live longer than we do and they base alot of their medications on herbs ect. We won’t even test to see if they work! Did you ever think about surgery? I mean it did not exist back then either! Thats hogwash I don’t think your answer explains Jack! FDA=$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

vti answers:

Because many natural remedies are bunk, sorry to say. “Natural” companies want your money too. How many advertisements for “herbal and natural” penis enlargement, breast enlargement, weight loss, etc. Do you need to see? Have you seen the law suits from those who were ripped off? And thus why those adds were pulled off the air? They simply don’t work, and since they are not regulated and purified, they may even put people’s lives at risk. How many times have you seen a “natual” product say “no side effects”?

Well, if a product is to actually have any kind of benefit, side effects are a potential risk.

I’m not a fan of Big Pharma pushing drugs. But what some “natural” companies are doing is no better. If natural cures are so good, why did so many people die prior to modern medicine. When you get people claiming that you can cure all kinds of fatal and serious diseases with a simple herb (and zero proof or results), they have gone too far.

There are risks to any treatment if it actually works. If alternative medicine wants to be supported, then those companies must prove their product works and is safe like everyone else. The FDA is not a fan because a) most companies who produce natural products are not marketing them as a drug, and b) they sometimes have little evidence to back up their claims. The FDA only approves substances that have gone through Phase 3 trials.

There are published medical reports about the success of some dietary substances such as Omega 3 essential fatty acid. That is proven. It’s the bogus “cure all” herbal products that you need to watch out for.

EDIT: No YOU’RE mistaken. The Chinese and Japanese have a MUCH healthier diet and lifestyle than Western people. They also have genetic protection from many diseases and seem to genetically tend to live longer. When it comes to certain non-preventable diseases that require Western medicine, those people die SOONER, because they refuse medical care. The “weak” and sick Asian people are weeded out of the gene pool, because they do not use Western medicine. So you have an overall healthier population. Combine this with the other info I gave, and you can see why Asians are generally healthier, provided they do not follow a Western diet. You are just as brainwashed by “alternative medicine” ironically. Why not go ahead and buy those $100 penis enlargement pills? When you have cancer, make sure you take vitamins, heaven forbid you see a doctor for cancer treatment.

I’m not saying we should become a nation of pill poppers, but if you need Western medicine to survive, your choices are take it or die. Alternative medicine cannot and will not be a soultion to everything. That is why most people who had health conditions died and were weeded out of the gene pool prior to modern medicine. Should we revert back to that? I don’t know…but the bottom line is that there is a place for Western and a place for alternative medicine. Alternative medicine cannot cure everything, and sometimes it helps nothing. I am not against “natual remedies”. I AM against people who are so brainwashed that they use natural remedies and let their children die of a 100% treatable with Western medicine disease.

Richard asks…

Natural hayfever remedies?

I have hayfever and most of the over the counter remedies don’t work for me. Does anyone know of any natural alternatives?

vti answers:

The best remedies for hay fever can be found in alternative medicine; namely homeopathy.

I have personally treated and cured multiple patients suffering from different forms of hay fever and allergies.

Hayfever is part of a deep constitutional condition.
It is normally related to the sycotic miasm and the most success I have had is with Nat Sulph 6X – 3 tablets to be take 6 hourly preferably empty-stomached or 30-45 minutes before or after meals.

The above remedy is more relevant to tree pollen allergy. The other head remedies I have personally found to be most efficacious are as below:

1. Lachesis 1 M (1000) – first to be taken for 3 days; single dose – 3/4 drops in 1/4th glass of water preferably empty-stomached or 30-45 minutes before or after meals.

Then one dose after 15 days thereafter for the duration of the hay fever season.

2. Sabadilla 30 – to be taken in case you get a bout of sneezing.

Other effective remedies are there also but are aspecific to your symptoms. Feel free to write ..

Best of luck!

James asks…

HELP! Allergies!!! Any natural remedies?

I am going to visit my sister in law for a week,she has 2 cats and I am allergic big time(wheezing and all) I am also a couple weeks pregnant.So my question is,does anyone know any natural remedies or anything I can take that’s safe?Thanks.

vti answers:

The best natural remedy would be to not visit. (I know, I know – thats not what you wanted to hear….)

The second best would be to make sure she has fresh linens down that have never been exposed to kitty-cats….and then you could try saline rinses*** to get the cat dander out of your nasal cavities so there is less to react to….and for goodness sakes, you could always try to have your pharmacist order you dust masks for allergens (the ones they usually carry wont usually cut it)

The only herbal remedy for allergies that I would actually suggest to most folks, I’m not going to suggest because it also influences hormones…..{hey, just because things are natural, does not mean they don’t have side effects}…and you don’t want to do that while pregnant…

Just in case you absolutely need one while you are visiting (because lets face it, its hard to sleep AND wheeze) here is the list of drugs that are classified as safe for use while pregnant – antihistamines are about a 1/4 of the way down the page. Chlortrimatron looks like the safest bet.

***Any drug store will carry saline nasal spray, or you could try a neti pot (google it)

Congratulations

Helen asks…

Is there any natural remedies to fight bipolar disorders or panick atacks?

anibody knows about a natural remedies or techniches to fight a panick atack or bipolar disorders?

vti answers:

Kava Kava is a root that I have taken, in capsule form, to help with panic attacks or anxious stress in general. It’s famous for it’s ability to calm your nerves and promote a feeling of calmness and well-being. You have to make sure to take a dosage that’s appropriate for you (I recommend asking someone who works in the supplements section of a good natural/health food store). Http://www.raysahelian.com/kava.html

Valerian root is also available in capsules, and works as a mild sedative and sleep aid. I also found this to be effective, particularly when anxiety was causing insomnia. This stuff is very stinky! I recommend keeping it in a Ziploc bag 🙂 Check this out for more info: http://www.1001herbs.com/valerian/

Both Kava and Valerian should be used with caution if you are planning on driving. You should try taking them at a time when you do not have to drive (or watch little kids, or other important stuff like that), so you can see how much of an effect they have on you.

Bach’s flower essence remedies makes a product called “Bach’s Rescue Remedy”. I found that this stuff is awesome for bringing me down from an anxiety/panic state, but doesn’t create the somewhat altered-state that Kava and Valerian can cause.

Good luck in your quest! I had to go through a lot of horrible experiences with prescription drugs before I discovered some more natural things that worked for me (in addition to my Rx meds). These are the ones that worked for me, and have worked for other people I have recommended them to.
