Take Mucuna Pruriens capsules everyday. Two capsules, one in the morning and one in the evening. Mix a pinch of Saffron in a glass of milk and drink it every night before going to bed. It is only a suggestion, you may consult your health care provider before trying the herbs.

Is it possible to increase your breast with basil leaves and how quick does it work?
10 Nov 2016
The remedy is this-- No other herb can show better results than these--- Massage your breasts in upward direction , for 15 minutes. Best oil for it is grape seed oil or almond oil. you might come across answer like apply essential oils like carrot oil or fennel seed oil. But. I will suggest to not go for them as these oils are very very strong and inappropriate quantity may cause burning sensation on the skin. And yes, you can massage your breasts with prime rose oil. Do it twice a day, for best results. Flax seed is used to reduce breasts size. take the powder of the seeds with hot water. Drink it daily.

I want to know the uses of tridax procumbens for hair. does it helps in converting the grey hairs into back and how?
22 Sep 2019
It's great for any kind of hair problems..Onion juice is also great for hairs..read this. Using onion juice is a sure-shot method to boosting hair growth and promoting hair regrowth. Here are some possible reasons behind what makes this ingredient so effective:
Onion juice helps improve hair growth by boosting the level of an antioxidant enzyme catalase. This enzyme helps decompose hydrogen peroxide, optimizing the hair growth cycle.It helps nourish your hair follicles with its rich content of sulfur. Sulfur is essential for the regeneration of your hair follicles.The rich sulfur content also helps minimize hair thinning and breakage.The antioxidants help reverse premature graying and delay graying.Onion’s rich antibacterial properties help keep your scalp healthy and free of infection, promoting unhindered hair growth. These same properties also maximize circulation of blood, resulting in it follicles that are well-nourished

I have too much heat , for that my hands and legs only plams and feet are scratching. i am using this leaves on the scratching parts i am releaved. but can i drink this leaf juice also ...please advice so that the body heat comes out.
16 Aug 2019
Dear Mahebubunnisa, The juice of leaves of this plant is not suitable for drinking. Well, you can apply the juice over wounds and cut. It will stop bleeding and prevent infection. For the body heat, do the following:
1. Have a glass of Buttermilk once or twice in a day.
2. Fill the water bottle with 5-6 mint leaves. Drink that water in the day and keep refilling it.
3. Avoid eating spicy and fried food.
4. Take Baking soda for 21 days. Add a pinch of baking soda in half glass of water. Do not add more than a pinch of baking soda. Do it for a month. It will help your body to alkalize and you will feel better in terms of heat.

What can be used to enhance reading without using recommended glasses?
10 Oct 2019
Dear Bayo,
Do you have weak eyesight? Specify the number of your glasses for better treatment.
Meanwhile, Take Euphrasia Officinalis - Mother tincture from a homeopathy shop and take 10 drops morning and evening in a glass of water. And continue the consumption of Goji berries.
Also, do some yoga and you will feel better.

My son is got atopic dermatitis how to cure him from that please suggest
05 Nov 2019
Hello Ramya, Is your son below 5 years of age? You can try using Tea tree, coconut oil or Olive oil. Try Tea tree oil diluted with some coconut oil. You can use Olive oil if it doesn't suit your child. Young children have sensitive skin. So be cautious. Test and apply on a skin patch at first and then use it for the entire rash.
Also, try Baking soda. Add it to your bathing tub and soak the affected body parts in it. Stop these if you find any irritation.
Check Atopic Dermatitis on this website. I have read a lot of information there.

07 Jan 2020
Hey Sana, Does your wound bleed? Well, try getting Arnica for topical use. It is effective for wounds like the one you have. Have a cup of Turmeric milk. Add half teaspoon of Turmeric in a glass of warm milk. Add a pinch of Black pepper to it. Take it thrice a week.
You can also apply coconut oil over your wound when it starts stretching the skin. It will provide you relief.
Such wounds take 15-20 days minimum to heal completely. Eat a healthy diet.
For pain, you can try Chamomile tea, it provides a soothing effect on the body. take it once in 2 days. Do not take it more than a week.

Hey Yetunde, Tinospora Cordifolia, herbally called Giloy is recommended for High Blood Pressure. Buy the mother tincture of Tinospora Cordifolia. Have 2 drops in a glass of water twice a day. Consult your Doctor first if you are taking any medication. Regarding IVF too, a consultation with your Health Care Practitioner is a must.
