Saya mengalami masalah kulit kepala. Ada terdapat 3 tompok merah dan pada bahagian tersebut rambut saya gugur dan rambut tidak tumbuh lagi di kawasan itu, nampak licin permukaannya tapi tidak berkuping. Saya sangat takut sekiranya ianya merebak dan makin membesar. Doktor yang saya jumpa mengatakan masalah ini adalah carcinoma. Adakah ubat yang berkesan untuk mengubati panyakit saya ini? Untuk pengetahuan tuan saya juga mengalami masalah sclap sweating yang keterlaluan walaupun saya membuat kerja yang ringan.

Hi Priscillia:

Kalau doktor mengata itu ialah carcinoma, jadi anda kena pergi membuat rawatan secepat mungkin. Ini adalah perkara yang paling penting dan harus dipertimbangkan. Berkenaan dengan masalah lain yang dihadapi, semuanya perlu ditundakan selepas rawatan carcinoma.

Hi doc..
saya menghadapi masalah keguguran rambut yang ketara, adakah dengan mengambil celgynic boleh memberi kesan terhadap keguguran tersebut dan berapa lama masa yang diam

Adakah dengan memakan celgynic boleh menjadi gemuk.

Balasan kami:

En Shahudin,

Untuk menyelesaikan masalah keguguran rambut, selain daripada membantu memperbaiki, memperbaharui dan menyusun semula membransel organ badan untuk memudahkan penyerapan nutrien, kandungan Lesitin dalam Celgynic memang boleh membantu mencegah keguguran rambut.

Selain daripada Celygnic, encik juga boleh mencuba Hai-O Bamboo Salt kami semasa mencuci rambut. Campurkan sedikit Hai-O Bamboo Salt Premier Drink dengan air, dan sapukan pada kulit kepala, sedikit massage pada kulit kepala. Ini akan menggalakkan kesihatan kulit rambut.

Harap maklumat ini membantu anda.

Sekian, terima kasih.

Hi, I have alot pimple & acne within this 2 years & I experience oily scalp with lots of hair drop. I been using quite a number of facial products but it did not help. I have regular period flow but frequently encounter back bone discomfort. I dont face any of this problem when I was 18 to 21 years old. I have pretty fair & nice skin complexion before this.
Is this happen because of my changing lifestyle, change diet or hormonal imbalance?

Is there any herbs which I can improve my skin complexion & regulate my hormone? I heard few of my friends took chinese medication & her condition improve and free of pimple. I’m 24 now & I wish to get my skin back to normal because pimple & acne make my confident level drop.

Thank you.

Do you use computer often?

Hello Doctor,

I would appreciate it, if you could kindly let me know the herbs to consume that are effective in improving memory and to cure mental fatique.

Further, which herbs are best to be taken before sleep & the next morning waking up feeling refreshed mentally & strengthen physically?

I am also facing hair loss after delivering my 2nd baby (now almost 7 mth old) and few strands of white hair appearing. Could that be due to me breastfeeding my baby as am still breastfeeding till now? What shall i do to stop those hair loss & white hair appearing?

Really need your kind advice.

Thanks so much doctor!

Chinese physician answer:

You can try to take Honbo Ginkgo B-Active (康堡銀杏, one capsule every morning) and Hai-O Cordyceps Capsule (海鷗冬蟲夏草丸, one capsule every night) .

hai..saya berumur 23thn..saya mengalami masalah keguguran rambut setiap hari,dan boleh di katakan rambut depan saya semakin nampak botak.apakah ubat yang boleh membantu mengurangkan keguguran rambut saya..pelbagai sampoo antihair fall digunakan,tapi rambut saya tetap gugur hari demi hari.

Chinese physician jawab:
Keguguran rambut mungkin berkaitan dengan genetik.

Corak kehidupan yang tidak stabil, sering kerja lewat malam, turun naik angin (emosi), pengambilan ubat-ubat tertentu dan penyakit kulit juga merupakan faktor-faktor yang menyebabkan keguguran rambut.

Pada pendapat Chinese physician, umumnya menjalankan rawatan dengan menguatkan buah pinggang dan membekalkan darah. Perubatan Cina yang boleh diambil ialah “七寶美髯丹”(Qi Bao Mei Ran Dan),“人參養荣丸”(Renshen Yangrong Wan),“六味地黃丸”(Liu Wei Di Huang Wan)dan lain-lain, kesannya agak lambat jadi kena ambil masa untuk perawatan.

Biasanya, JANGAN mengambil makanan yang pedas, JANGAN merokok, mengekalkan kehidupan yang sihat dan makan buah-buahan / sayur-sayuran dengan banyak.

saya mempunyai masalah rambut gugur yang sangat banyak tapi tak botak di mana-mana kawasan kepala.Ia merunsingkan saya kerana rambut gugur pada sepanjang masa walaupun saya sentuh dengan lembut. Rambut akan gugur dengan banyak apabila saya sikat rambut dan semasa bershampoo. Saya ada mengambil pil multivitamin dan vitamin b compleks untuk tambah selera makan dan tenaga kerana saya agak tertekan.Adakah dengan pengambilan pil ini menyebabakan saya keguguran rambut?Sekarang saya sudah berhenti mengambil pil ini kerana bimbang kesan sampingannya.Saya menghadapi masalah ini sejak 3bulan lalu sehingga kini.Rambut saya halus, kering, ada masalah kelemumur, panjang dan beralun. Jadi rawatan apa yang diperlukan oleh semua masalah saya ini?

Balasan kami:
Berkenaan dengan keguguran rambut dan masalah berkelemumur, ia boleh disebabkan oleh pelbagai faktor seperti tekanan, cara pemakanan yang tidak sihat dan masalah kulit kepala. Dengan pengambilan celgynic yang merupakan unsur penting dalam pembentukan membran sel badan manusia, ia turut membantu dalam melancarkan peredaran darah serta mengurangkan masalah keguguran rambut.

Cara pengambilan: 2 kali sehari, pagi dan malam. Sila ambil sebanyak 4-6 biji setiap kali.

Sebarang pertanyaan anda amatlah dialu-alukan. Sekian, terima kasih.
