How to start a Diet Plan?

Diets are not same  for everyone

One should understand the reason for weight gain and adopt dietary methods according to the physical characteristics of each person. Only then can the goal be achieved

 

The energy and nutrients needed for the body's daily activities, physical and mental growth and immune functions are obtained from food. But eating too much energy-dense food can lead to obesity. When excess fat accumulates in the body and affects physical function, hormonal balance, and organ function, it becomes a disease.


Reasons


Unscientific diet is the main cause of obesity. Calories are the amount of energy that comes from food. Starch, protein and fat are the main energy-giving nutrients. One gram of starch and protein when digested produces 4 kcal of energy and one gram of fat produces 9 energy. When the body gets more energy than it needs through food, the body stores this energy as fat under the skin, in the muscles and in the liver. Every extra 9 kilo calories is converted into one gram of fat. Becomes obese over time.


Certain medical conditions, hormonal disorders, genetic causes, and side effects of medications can also cause obesity. In these people proper treatment along with diet is required.



How to control


Controlling the amount of energy obtained from food (dieting) and using the energy produced properly (exercise) are the ways to control obesity. Some peoples also have bariatric surgery to remove fat.


What is proper dieting?


Dieting is a positive lifestyle change. A proper diet means modifying our eating habits to include all the essential nutrients we need. They should start from homes. A balanced diet should always be eaten. Eat foods rich in water and fiber. Avoidance of any one nutrient or excess of another is undesirable.


Dieting is not about avoiding your favorite foods. Food quantity, quality, cooking method, time of eating and choice of dishes are all important factors.


Why Dieting Fails?


Diet planning should be done by understanding many factors such as age, gender, occupation, physical condition, current weight, height and fat content of each person. Other dieting will not show results. One's metabolism also plays an important role.


A diet prescribed for someone else may not be right for you. Not only will weight not be lost, there may be malnutrition or serious illness.


Dietary restriction regardless of existing medical condition. For example, when a diabetic goes on a diet without expert advice, there may be a large fluctuation in the glucose level and the disease may worsen. Then the diet becomes chaotic.


Hormonal changes occur in the body when starving to lose weight quickly. Ghrelin, an appetite-stimulating hormone, increases production and causes overeating after the first few days. By thinking about food all the time, we unconsciously start eating more.

Excessive anxiety about diet leads to stress, stress eating, and conditions like anorexia nervosa. Diseases caused by nutritional deficiencies are discouraged by dieting.


Dieting should be done with patience. When you try to lose weight quickly and fail, sticking to a routine can lead to weight gain.


My pot;-Following the My Bowl model is a very effective way to prevent and manage lifestyle diseases. A nine-inch round bowl should be divided into quarters, one half containing starch sources such as grains and tubers, one half containing protein sources, and the other half containing vegetables and fruits. It is an integrated way to increase consumption of vegetables and fruits. In this way, it is possible to reduce the consumption of starch and fat and thereby prevent excessive calorie intake.

Hunger—Physical or Mental?


Physical hunger is when you feel a natural need for food 3-4 hours after eating a meal. When you feel hungry like this, you start feeling hungry with food. Feeling hungry very slowly. It is also possible to postpone eating for a while.


But emotional-hunger is characterized by hunger for a particular food. You will not feel satisfied until you eat that food. Feeling a lot of stress. Just thinking about it without any patience. It is not possible to control the amount while eating. And feel guilty after eating. It is necessary to control this situation. In such cases try to engage in something else that is more interesting. Eat salad Filling the stomach and exercising can help to overcome this condition to some extent.

Emotional hunger is more common among people who live alone. Being happy with yourself is very important in this context.


10 things to watch out for


1. Drink 2-3 liters of water a day. Along with this,salted lemon water can be practiced. Avoid synthetic fruit juices and colas.


2. Eat protein-rich foods and salad first when eating. After that it is possible to control the amount when eating grains.


3. Skipping an early meal is not good. Seek expert advice when fasting.


4. Choose fruits or vegetables as snacks. 10 grams can be taken.


5. Eat in small bowl to control quantity. You can eat less of your favorite food without skipping it.


6. Set small goals. Eg: Try to lose 05-1.5 kg in a month.


7. Exercise is important. Yoga, walking, Zumba etc should be done at least 4-5 days a week.


8. Don't buy and keep bakery sweets at home.


9. Chew your food slowly and savor it.


10. Do not stop dieting in between. Not everyone's body responds to dieting in the same way. Take your time and be patient. Avoid trying diet plans and magic foods that go viral on social media. Follow your dietician's advice and follow your own body specifications and limitations.


Sweetness only with care


Sweets are all high-energy foods. They contain sugar, high fructose corn syrup, ghee, butter and processed corn flour, all of which provide only energy (no other nutrients). Even in small quantities, they are high in calories. For example, a 50 gram sweet  will provide around 180-200 kcal. Too much sweetness will cause you to burn more fat around the belly and hormones. Disorders can also occur.People who want to lose weight should avoid sweets.


Energy and obesity


Weight loss begins when energy is depleted and fat is burned through exercise. About 7000-8000 kcal of energy needs to be lost to lose one kilogram of fat. In the beginning, it is best to lose weight in half a week diet plan. This will help the body adapt and continue.


How to spot a fad diet


Argument that it will give results very quickly. Eg: To lose 7 kg in a week. Such diets, which allow only 500-600 kcal per day, can negatively affect brain function, nutrient absorption, and hormone levels. Such a diet cannot be continued.

These are propagated based on personal experiences and not based on studies.


A diet that provides a list of foods to include and avoid.


A diet that provides a similar diet chart for everyone.


A diet plan that does not prescribe exercise at all.


A diet that forces you to use expensive dietary supplements instead of food.


Irresponsibly presented as the latest scientific discovery.


Those that show the results of studies conducted on very few (10-20) individuals.


Diets that promote a balanced diet are wrong.


Diet methods featuring super foods.


All nutrients are obtained through a balanced diet. Absorption and utilization of nutrients through normal digestion process can prevent stomach diseases. If you go on a diet for a month or two and then go back to your old diet, you may gain more weight than you were before. Fad diets like these don't help, although you may initially feel weight loss due to dehydration.


Choose good foods


Along with portion control, eating nutritious food is also important. For that, choose the right nutritional value. For example, grains, sugar, legumes, and dietary fiber all contain starch or carbohydrates. Dietary fiber prevents obesity while sugar and starch cause obesity.


Grains: Grains are rich in dietary fiber in their true form. But processed grains/cereal flours lose their bran and become only a source of starch (white rice, flour etc.). Along with these, sweets made with oil, sugar and salt cause lifestyle diseases. Whole grains are rich in nutrients such as iron, vitamins C and E, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. They also help boost immunity. Moreover, bran is a storehouse of dietary fiber. They prevent fat gain and facilitate digestion.


Those who want to control their weight should cut grains to half of their current intake. Use only whole grains.


Tapioca can be included in small quantity (instead of milk. But eat plenty of vegetables along with it.


Protein: Protein comes mainly from fish, meat and legumes. Eating protein makes you feel fuller. Also, you won't get hungry all of a sudden. Always have protein with your main meal. Try to include egg whites, small fish, lean meats, skim milk, and sprouted legumes. Avoid frying meat and fish in oil. Try to eat starchy foods and protein-rich foods in equal amounts.


Fats Vitamins A, D, E, and K are essential for the body to absorb good fats. But overheating oil is often the villain. Which oil is better is still a matter of debate. But it is advised not to use more than three teaspoons of oil a day. It is better to use different types of oils alternately.


Obese people should avoid oil-fried and waxy foods. Oil consumption can also be controlled by avoiding frying mustard in curries. Oil and salt can be controlled by avoiding pickles and fried foods


Try to include steamed desserts. It is also not recommended to wipe oily foods on tissue paper. Use quality non-stick utensils. Always measure oil in spoons only.


Fruits and vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are super foods for weight loss that are rich in nutrients and fiber and should include local vegetables and seasonal fruits. Eat plenty of spinach leaves, drumstick leaves, banana nuts, banana pulp, papaya, apricots, and amaranths.


It is better to avoid fruit juices and eat whole fruits. But trying to lose weight by eating only vegetables and fruits is unscientific. Avoid eating too much at one meal and only eating fruits/vegetables the next. Make salad a staple. Eating a salad with a meal fills the stomach and prevents overeating. Try a varied salad with vegetables, fruits, sprouted beans, a handful of nuts, boiled egg whites, and cooked meats.


Nuts and Seeds: Nuts and seeds are a storehouse of protein, healthy fats, dietary fiber, vitamin C, zinc, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Cantaloupes, almonds, pistachios and cashews can be eaten as snacks or added to salads. Roasting a variety of berries and eating them as snacks can help curb hunger and provide moderate energy. Eating 10 grams of nuts a day helps raise HDL levels. But eating too much and frying with oil and salt can not only lead to obesity but also increase the cholesterol level (LDL).


Millets: Millets with relatively low starch content ( Barley, Corn) are good for reducing obesity. These can be eaten as rice, salted flour or ground with bran and added to flour. Millets are a storehouse of iron, calcium and phosphorus.


Probiotics: Probiotics are good microorganisms that come from food. Studies show that these can reduce energy absorption. Try to include a cup of curd in your diet a day

If girls go to the gym

Girls come to the gym to control body weight and obesity. Definitely a great option if fitness is your priority

The number of women going to the gym, especially girls in their teens and young adulthood, has increased significantly compared to the past. This suggests that there has been a major shift in the misconception that heavy gym workouts are for men to build muscle. The awareness that regular exercise is necessary to maintain fitness and the fact that there is no difference between men and women is becoming more popular today.

Weight control and weight loss are the main goals that drive girls to the gym. It is very systematic and scientific to develop the exercise habit.

If you decide to go to the gym, the next question is where to go. Gyms are now even in rural areas. But not all places are women-friendly. The first thing to do is find it. It is advisable to choose a gym as close as possible to your home. Because the gym is a place where you have to go regularly for a long time. It shouldn't be a crisis any longer. While choosing the nearest gym, it is imperative that there is no compromise on convenience and cleanliness.

Can you go to the gym during your period?

This is the doubt of many. It depends on the physical condition of each person. If there is no excessive bleeding and fatigue, there is no hindrance to going to the gym or exercising. Whether it is necessary to work as much as usual can be decided by considering the health at that time.

The fact is that light exercises can help control the stress that is common during menstruation and reduce the physical problems to some extent. This can energize the body and mind.

Even before joining the gym, if possible go and assess things in person. It is a place where many people come and go, and materials used by as many people. Therefore, cleanliness should be ensured. Check that the gym equipment is properly maintained. Even the slightest carelessness on the part of operators can lead to accidents.

Ensure that the trainer is properly trained and qualified. If you do workouts in an unscientific way, the body will have many harms. Before going to the gym, it is best to review your health status with your doctor. Especially if you have any kind of illness, you should consult your doctor about how to exercise.

Exercise should be done at the same time every day. It doesn't matter if you go to the gym randomly this morning and tomorrow evening. Work should have a clear sense of purpose. Targeting fat levels, maintaining a healthy body weight, and managing lifestyle diseases. A workout schedule should be prepared with this goal in mind.

Food, water and sleep are just as important as exercise. Eating something light, such as fruit, biscuits or oatmeal, within 45 minutes of starting work out will give the body energy. Drink enough water before, during and after exercise. Risk of dehydration should be avoided.

Don't jump into strenuous exercise immediately after hitting the gym. Warm up is important. Until then, the body, which is in a normal state, should first be prepared for labor. By warming up, the body's temperature, respiratory rate, and heart rate gradually become ready for exercise. Jumping into strenuous exercise without a warm-up can lead to injury. Warming up at the start of a workout is just as important as stretching and cooling down at the end. Carbohydrate and protein-rich foods are preferred after a workout.
Along with aerobic exercises like cycling and dancing, girls should also do strength training workouts. It gives strength and flexibility to the muscles. But many girls are skeptical about weight-bearing exercises. If you do that, it is doubtful that the body will become rough like that of men. One thing to understand is that there is no male-female distinction in terms of exercises. But the changes they cause in the body of both groups are different.

Estrogen, a female hormone, is fat building. At the same time, the male hormone testosterone is capable of muscle building. They also have more muscle mass. So when men do heavy weight exercises, the results will be reflected in the muscles. Changes in the male body through exercise can occur faster than in girls. Therefore, girls do not need to shy away from strength training for fear of looking like men with muscle spasms.

The important thing to remember when doing non-aerobics is not to repeatedly exercise the same body part. If hand  is exercised on one day, legs should be exercised on the next day. This gives the muscle time to rest and grow.

Dress up

Since the legs and arms have to move abnormally, choose clothes that are loose and not puffy. Gym-friendly clothes are readily available in the market today. Be careful to choose quality ones.

Running shoes are best for gym workouts. Also choose quality ones. Or you may have knee and ankle pain in the future.

A sports bra is important. A sports bra will help the breasts not to feel sore and droopy when the body bends and leans.

Carry a towel for wiping off sweat etc. It is convenient to tie the hair up in a ponytail style or something.


Are breast beauty lost when trying to reduce fat?

These are the things women should know for sure.Obesity and breast beauty is a big problem that most women face today. For women who go to the gym or exercise at home to lose weight, the first thing they lose is the beauty of their breasts.

As most women give more importance to breast beauty than facial beauty, it is likely to become a big psychological problem in women.

Although there are many other factors that affect breast size, health experts point out that if you exercise to lose weight, breast size will also decrease. Breasts are mainly made up of fatty tissue. They contain milk ducts and lymphatic tissues. Behind the breast is the pectoral muscle, and exercise can change breast size in two ways. The more you exercise, the more weight you lose and the fat cells shrink. Since the breasts are mainly fatty tissues, this can lead to a reduction in breast size.                

But health experts say that women should not stay away from exercising for this reason. These people point out that it is possible to lose excess weight without losing the beauty of the breast. They also warn to focus on a balanced diet and exercise plan.

Follow a balanced diet that contains a healthy percentage of all nutrients, such as adequate protein and carbohydrates. Eat a diet that helps increase estrogen and phytoestrogen levels. It can include flaxseed, soy, yogurt, soybeans, soy milk, sesame, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, and red beans.

You should do some exercises to strengthen the pectoral muscles. These muscles connect the chest to the shoulders and upper body. The breasts are located above the pectoral muscles and strengthening these muscles helps the breasts to become firmer and firmer.
Doing chest exercises strengthens the pectoral muscles. You can perform exercises like bench presses, push ups using a wall instead of the floor, dissect bench presses, and fires that target the upper, middle, lower, and inner chest. Heavy weight lifting and strength training exercises also help strengthen these muscles. So practice these chest exercises at least thrice a week.

Choosing the right type of sports bra is also essential for women's breast beauty. Choosing the wrong bra size can cause breast pain and sagging. Massaging the breasts twice a day can reduce the appearance of stretch marks and improve the appearance of the breasts. Almond oil is very good for massaging the breasts.

These are some other ways to enhance breast beauty.

Daily massage with coconut oil is very good for maintaining the health of breast skin. Mixing coconut oil and aloevera juice together and applying it on the breasts is very good. It is good for improving blood flow in the breasts and reducing wrinkles.

If the nipples are inverted, gently rubbing from the center of the breasts towards the nipple area can bring the nipples out. If this rubbing does not work, surgery will be required. If the nipples are dry or cracked, apply a moisturizing cream.

Never use 'hair remover' cream to remove breast hair. Do not rub the breasts with a towel after bathing. Breast skin and nipples are very soft and can tear.

To maintain breast beauty

It is better to pay special attention to food. And beat the egg whites well. Then add the onion juice in the mixer. Egg white and onion juice can be mixed together to wash the breasts. Doing this daily will increase the beauty of the breasts. Massaging the breasts with fenugreek water is very good.

Anger can reduce health

Diet and exercise often feature prominently in discussions of lifestyle disease management. Changes in the body due to uncontrolled anger should also be taken seriously. Health can be defined in many ways. Those definitions go from a state of being free from disease, to vigorous activity, to immunity, to an abundance of energy to sustain life and strength.

Laboratory tests and advanced technology-based devices are now available as benchmarks for measuring health. But health can also be seen as a state of being experienced beyond these dimensions.

Health is maintaining the balance of life. Achieving this requires understanding life as a grand phenomenon in which body, mind and spirit are united.

The functioning of the body is subject to many conditions. But the mind is different. This is poetically pointed out in Mullanezhi's lines, "The mind runs like a magical horse, on paths unseen by man".

It is about lifestyle diseases. The prevention, modification and treatment of lifestyle diseases cannot all be confined to measurable physical dimensions. The sensory system, which includes the mind, intellect and senses, also has an equal share in this.

Food, medicine, mental practices and physical activities that lead to longevity are all Rasayanas in a sense. Ayurvedacharyas summarizing this subject say, "Satyavadinamakrodham adhyatmapravanendriyam Shantam sadvrttaniratam vidyannityarasayanam" from which only one element is confined to the framework of this article.-'Akrodham, the state without anger.

It is indicated that only if you remain akrodhana, you will be healthy and your life will be long. It is noteworthy that none of the emotions such as anxiety, fear, grief, and depression are included in this category and it is noteworthy that at the emotional level, anger reduces vitality and life expectancy.

Anger affects natural bodily functions in many ways. Increases the production of chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol. This can result in high blood pressure. It can cause damage to organs like the heart, brain, kidneys and even lead to death. It has been proven that a person who is excessively angry can have a disordered bowel function (Cut). Therefore, anger causes negative reactions in the metabolic processes. In short, anger destroys health and shortens life for many reasons.


Ayurveda says that unhealthy reactions caused by anger can lead to pithakopa. Bile refers to Jevagni (Bio enzymatic complex). Every cell has suranas of bioagni. Death is the extinguishing of the vital fire—be it of the individual or of the cell.

The symptoms of ill-health manifested in the body due to anger are fatigue, intolerance, closing of the eyes, tremors, impotence, smoking, lack of vitality, digestive disorders fermentation, indigestion, dry mouth, diarrhoea, etc.

Uncontrollable anger has become very common in modern living conditions. In the search for the causes of lifestyle diseases, the physical and mental reactions caused by anger should also be considered. While accepting the fact that anger is a natural emotion, it is important to learn to control it. Ayurveda's advice in this regard is to learn, practice and acquire the sattvic quality of grace.

Kripa means Daya and Paraklesavivekam Karunyam Anuthapam (empathy). This is a quality that can only be acquired through practice. It is suggested to start from childhood. It's not over, there are still more ways to calm Copagni. Make it a habit to enjoy the beauty of nature. Fun with toddlers can cool down anger. If the condition permits, exquisite and delicious food becomes an antidote. At the same time, it is also advised not to use intoxicating substances like alcohol.

There are medicines in medicine that can be used for those who suffer from grief due to anger. Medicines should be used only as per expert advice.


Ayurveda is a health oriented science. Pathological thoughts and discussions are a natural sequel. Ayurveda's approach to health is almost holistic. This integrity is derived from nature. Ayurveda teaches how to make the life events from dawn to dusk creative. Creativity here is health related.

Even those who are sick are healthy. By maintaining such health conditions, the severity of diseases can be reduced. For example, if a diabetic is otherwise healthy, the health problems caused by diabetes will not be severe.

Health means strength. If you protect your strength, strength will protect you.' This is the main health message of Ayurveda. "Strengthening health is the science of healthy action.

The following notes are a glimpse into the methods recommended by Ayurveda to achieve the above goals.

Food is balanced

Let's take the matter of food. Food is not just food, but everything that enters the body through the five senses (mouth, eyes, nose, tongue and skin). Good sights, tastes, smells, sounds and touches become food. A closer look reveals that there are foods that nature cooks itself and that we cook. Foods ripened by nature will increase in quality.

Food should be balanced. This balance is achieved by properly combining all the six types of rasam (sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter and pungent). People who love sweets eat too much of sweet foods and because of their liking for spicy foods, too much of sambar, pickles etc. leads to unhealthiness. A traditional diet in Kerala is part of a balanced diet. Papaya, kale etc. There was the addition of chicken curry, which is an example of an exemplary combination of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods.

The mind must be attuned

Mind is another important factor. Only food that suits the mind suits the body. In relation to the mind, food is classified into three categories: sattvik, rajasm and tamasam. Food should bring peace and tranquility to the mind. Don't eat automatically, like refueling a vehicle. Enjoy it.

Chemotherapy called sleep

Sleep is nature's chemical therapy. Vinobaji's advice is to experience sleep as death. Each day should be seen as rebirth. In order for the body to be awake during the day, it must be asleep at night. Spontaneous sleep affects the energy vibrations within the body.

Exercise for body and mind

Exercise is enough to keep the health clock ticking. Everyone should exercise according to their body strength. Exercise is essential to prevent lifestyle diseases and manage chronic diseases with less drugs. In short, exercise is medicine. Exercise is not only physical exercise but also includes yoga practice etc. to keep the mind, intellect and senses clear. Exercise is also games that stimulate the mind and refresh the body. Remember also that the lungs, heart and other organs are internally exercised to prolong life.

Satisfying relationships

Satisfying marital and family relationships are another cornerstone of long-term health. Sexual satisfaction is necessary to celebrate life. Sex is not only a means of consummation, but also of sharing love.

Drunkenness takes away the vitality

One factor that shortens the length of health and life and makes life miserable is addiction. Drunkenness kills vitality. Vigor is the new righteousness that comes from embracing life. The heart energy of Ayurvedic healing.

Above mentioned are some general things that are necessary for long health. Whenever one slips out of these knowingly or unknowingly the physician is appointed to revive the life.

How to control dandruff?
Dandruff is a simple disease. But the difficulties it causes can be enormous. There are ways to reduce dandruff and avoid complications.
Dandruff is a condition in which the cells on the surface of the scalp fall off like dust. Although this type of shedding is a natural occurrence, it becomes difficult when its rate increases. Dandruff is a simple condition but the psychological distress it causes is immense. There are many myths about what dandruff is and how to deal with it.

Dandruff is defined as a less severe form of (seborrheic dermatitis) is the most common cause of dandruff. There are three main reasons for this condition.

1. Presence of mold Malassezia.

2. Individual Susceptibility.

3. Immune deficiency.

Malassezia is a commensal fungus that usually lives on the outer layer of the skin. Most of the time it doesn't cause any other problems. However, sometimes it can cause dandruff and so on.
Sebum, which is released by the sebaceous glands of the scalp, is a favorable factor for the growth of Malassezia. Malassezia is a lipophilic fungus. The result of this reaction is to form fatty acids from cybeme. These fatty acids act on the scalp and cause inflammation. It accelerates the growth of skin cells and exfoliates them as white powdery flakes. This is what we see as stars.

Dandruff and Illusions

1. Applying oil will remove dandruff.

Using too much oil can sometimes have the opposite effect. Oily conditions favor the growth of the mold Malassezia. So don't use too much oil. If applied, wash off with shampoo.

2. Dandruff is a completely curable disease.

Dandruff also has genetic causes. Dandruff may go away with treatment, but there is always a chance that it will come back. By inhibiting the growth of the mold, the inflammation in the skin is reduced and the disease appears to have subsided. However, it is not possible to completely remove Malassezia mold from the skin.

3. Dandruff is spread by sharing combs and hair.

The mold that causes dandruff is in our own body. Molds that can be transmitted from others are from the genera Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, and Oncoverygoo (Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, and microsporum). Due to these, a disease called ringworm (tinea) can occur. To prevent this, it is said not to share combs and torts.

Method of cleaning the comb;-
First you need to remove the hair from your comb. Then take a little hot water in a bowl. A small amount of shampoo can be added to this. Then mix. Soak the comb in this water for 15 to 20 minutes. Scrub the cheat thoroughly with an old household toothbrush and rinse. Then wash the comb with some good water and use it again. At least once a week you should brush your comb like this.

4. Drink lots of water.

Dandruff is caused by dehydration. Drinking enough water and avoiding dehydration is essential for health. But dehydration is not related to dandruff. Drinking water alone without seeking remedies for dandruff will not change the condition of the disease.

5. Apply lemon juice and aloevera on the head to get rid of dandruff.

Applying lemon juice directly and massaging it may seem to reduce the dandruff temporarily, but it is not a cure. There will be no change in the disease state. Strong lemon juice can damage the skin and cause irritant contact dermatitis. Aloe vera gel is also not a cure-all for the condition, except that it may help reduce the itching for a while and change the scales.

6. All hair is shaved and washed. Still the dandruff does not go away.

Dandruff is a scalp condition. Cutting or shaving the hair does not cure the disease. The disease may appear to have subsided when the young children's hair is trimmed or shaved during the summer holidays. It may also be attributed to the natural decrease in morbidity due to climate change in summer.

7. Essential oils remove dandruff.

Tea tree oil, lavender oil, and rosemary oil are all touted for their anti-dandruff properties. Although there are studies showing that they are effective against fungal infections, it has not been proven that they can get rid of dandruff. It can also cause burns if used undiluted with other oils in a strong state.

8. Wearing a helmet will increase dandruff.

Dandruff is subject to seasonal changes. Studies have shown that dandruff is more common in cold, dry winter weather. Studies also show that hot, humid summers reduce the incidence of the disease. So there is no evidence that wearing a helmet increases dandruff due to heat and humidity. Helmets are essential for road safety. Don't skip the helmet just because you are a star.


Solutions

Dandruff is a long-term (sometimes lifelong) condition. Intermittent or continuous treatment may be required. The first step is to know and understand the disease.
Avoid self-medication and seek the help of a doctor for any medical condition. Treat dandruff in the same way.

Antifungal shampoos:- For fungal dandruff, shampoos are the first step. They can reduce the growth and inflammation of Malassezia. Shampoo can be used twice or more times a week. Apply it on the scalp and wash off after ten minutes. Continued use reduces dandruff and prevents excess returns. Shampooing at least once a month is beneficial as dandruff may return when shampooing is stopped. A shampoo containing ketoconazole, zinc perthion, and selenium sulfide is effective.

Steroid lotions:- In severe cases of the disease, watery rash and red spots may appear. Steroid lotions may be necessary in such cases. This condition is a severe form of seborrheic dermatitis. Steroid lotions can give good results if used in the right way and dosage.

Exfoliant Lotion:- Lotions containing salicylic acid are helpful in removing dandruff flakes and controlling sebum levels. Removes excess flakes and reduces inflammation on the scalp.

Reduce stress:- Stress has been found to increase or worsen dandruff. Behind it are immune-related changes.

Balanced diet:- Studies show mixed results on whether diet affects dandruff. Some studies suggest that dandruff is not related to diet. Some studies show that foods high in antioxidants can reduce dandruff


Some Home remedy for Dandruff

Neem leaves and coconut oil are another remedy that helps in getting rid of dandruff. Neem has anti-fungal properties. It therefore fights the infection caused by dandruff. Mix neem and coconut oil to make an antiseptic paste. It reduces itching. azm... Add some curry leaves to the mix and grind it well. Heat some coconut oil and mix well. Apply this mixture evenly on the scalp. Wash off with shampoo after 15 minutes.

Mix some curd with some lemon juice and mix well to make a hair pack. Apply it on your hair and wait for it to dry. After 15 minutes, wash your hair with cold water. Apply this pack twice or thrice a week. Yogurt contains vitamins and nutrients essential for hair like vitamin B3, lactic acid, calcium and fatty acids. Antimicrobial properties of curd keep dandruff and dry hair at bay.
