Hello doctor,

I am a 44-years-old female. I have massive hair fall, dandruff, blood pressure, and sugar. I have recovered from COVID three months ago. My weight is 75 kgs, and my height is 5 feet 4 inches. I am menopausal. Kindly help.



Welcome to

For hair fall and dandruff, I suggest the following herbal drugs:

a) Matthan thailam - One hour before bath, apply this oil on hair and scalp, do a gentle massage with your fingers. Take a bath after one hour in normal water or warm water (not in hot water). Follow this daily.

b) Karisalai karpam tablet - Two tablets morning, two afternoons, and two at night after food.

Follow these two herbal drugs for the next one month regularly. You will be improved. These drugs should be continued for three months totally.

For high blood pressure and sugar, do not stop allopathic drugs immediately. Please share the lab reports or consult nearby ayurveda or siddha doctors. After seeing the lab reports and your naadi (pulse), we can decide on herbal drugs.

But, I suggest you make the following recommendations from now onwards:

a) Night dinner should be completed before 7 PM. It should be millet-based food (you may see thousands of videos online).

50 % millet and 50 % vegetable (stew, fry, sabzi, etc.)

b) Morning breakfast should be at 9 AM. Again this is also millet-based food or just vegetable juices (cucumber, pumpkin, bottle gourd juice, etc.)

c) Lunch - As per your wish, anything is fine. But 50 % must be vegetables (stew, fry, sabzi). Curd or buttermilk can be taken.

d) Practice Pranayama - 20 minutes morning and evening on an empty stomach.

e) Walking in the evening or after dinner for 30 minutes.

f) Stop tea, milk, and coffee. If you want to consume tea or coffee, drink just hot water or any vegetable juices.

g) No snacks in between foods. Take any fruits or dry grapes, dry dates, and dry figs.

If you can follow these suggestions, you can surely stop all allopathic drugs and be healthy for as many days as you continue this dieting practice.

Thank you.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

These are my latest reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity).

I already practice yoga. My hemoglobin is always slightly low. Also, my resting heart rate is high.

Post covid, my sugar levels increased.

There are no siddha practitioners nearby.



Welcome back to

Please continue the pranayamas, which has more benefits to controlling the heart rate also.

The hemoglobin is not too low; it is near normal. So, no need to worry.

Daily consumption of one pomegranate (directly or as juice) results in an assured rise of hemoglobin by 2 g/dL per month.

Coronavirus disease (COVID) consequences affect the liver. Hence hemoglobin, glucose, and hair fall are occurring. For all these, the Karisalai karpam tablet is the drug that can be taken. I have already mentioned it for hair fall.

For excess heart rate, I suggest taking the following herbal (white lotus flower) based drug:

Venthamarai mathirai tablets - Two tablets morning, two afternoons, and two evenings (on an empty stomach).

So, now I suggest you buy Karisalai karpam tablet, Matthan thailam, and Venthamarai mathirai - use them for three months.

Within ten days, you will feel the difference.

Thank you.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for replying.



Welcome back to

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level to be reduced. The stress on the body (infections) can aggravate the glucose level.

Anyway, now you have come out of coronavirus disease (COVID) infection, so your blood glucose level will be controlled easily.

Proper dietary practice, walking, and drugs (allopathic or siddha) can maintain a normal glucose level.

The role of drugs is one-third only. The remaining role is yours.
