male pattern baldness itchy scalp and dandruff

Hi as the title suggests i have male pattern baldness but right now my first priority is getting some relief from an itchy scalp I would appreciate some help with an itchy scalp with dandruff I have tried head and shoulders but I feel it is just too harsh and it hasn't helped anyway.
I've heard of t gel but again I think all these treatments with chemicals are too harsh also used johnsons baby shampoo and again the bottle also reads as physics equation I've also tried natural remedies off the net like apple cider and baking sodo but again they didn't help so my question to you is could you offer any suggestions something mild but could maybe do the trick I'm in the UK and lastly just for reference I'm 43 so thanks and look forward to a reply.

take GRAPHITES 30c liquid, 2 drops in a tablespoon water, 3 times a day for 2 days,

{if buying pills then 3 pills, 3 times 2 days, chew it, dnt swallow with water}

dnt eat or drink anything 30 minutes before or after medicine,

report how you felt in fatigue, itching, sleep, confidence and mental freshness after 15 days of stopping the course,

also do some exercises like SURYA NAMASKAR (google it or youtube) 10 TIMES DAILY for proper blood flow in whole body,

BHRAMARI PRANAYAM (google it or youtube) 10 TIMES DAILY for mental freshness and fatigue,

masturbation can be done once a week which is normal,

THANKS..

Hi have i understood you properly you want me to take those graphite pills or drops three times a day but the course only lasts two days and after 15 days report back to you how I feel is this correct and this could help with my itchy scalp and all the other stuff.
I don't know if you make a diagnosis or what but with me having athletes foot jock itch and a really itchy scalp and the fact that I have been taking antibiotics for twenty odd years I was thinking that it is not only dandruff I have but some sort of reaccuring yeast infection like candida albicans or something like that due to taking antibiotics for half of my life thanks.
 
gibbsy09 5 years ago
yes i have considerd your athletes foot and baldness also.
 
homeo.mzp 5 years ago
Hi thanks so can you confirm that it is just a two day course thanks.
 
gibbsy09 5 years ago
yes 2 days only.
 
homeo.mzp 5 years ago
Hi thanks I appreciate all your help and I know you are busy but is there a possibility that you may have my diagnosis wrong reading about graphites 30c it seems people who use this have the complaint of Psoriasis but I don't think this is the case with me the skin on my head is not really red it is not scaly or silver appearance it is just itchy and there are flakes of dandruff.
Don't get me wrong if I thought graphites could help me I would buy it but is costs £8 on Amazon and I don't want to spend that and still have an itchy scalp.
So all I ask is for you to rethink what you think maybe wrong with me just in case and again please don't be offended but is there any other homeopathy practisioners on here that can look at my topic and give a second opinion or is it a case that when someone takes the patients case that they are the only one that will be dealing with the patient.
Again please don't be offended because that is the last thing I want all I want is to get some relief from this itchy scalp it is not severe like Psoriasis can be and I have no other dry patches anywhere on my body just the athletes foot and the jock itch.
So is it not possibly that this could be some sort of yeast infection I have heard of candida albicans and I'm sure you have as well so all I ask is if you rethink my problem and again thanks for your help so far and I look forward to hear from you.

Gibbsy,

You can get it from Homeoforce ( please
google) in the UK for 3.50 and free
shipping.

Remedies are chosen when important
symptoms that have more weight,
match your symptoms, along with
unusual symptoms and what makes
things better and worse. They do not
go by names of disease- they go by your
unique totality.Homeo mzp looked over
your totality to come up with this.

Others on here would do the same.
Please try it out.

Thanks Simone for the reply that is cheaper I will have a look for it and I will give it a go as you say all I ask is if I get no relief and things stay the same can I return here for a second opinion or help as I said before i appreciate all the help so far an I have no intentions to offend anyone on the forum thanks.
 
gibbsy09 5 years ago
Hi homeo zmp I was instructed by Simone to go to homeoforce to get graphites whitch I did but they don't have the chew tablets the same as they have on Amazon nor do they have the liquid they only have 7gram pillules what are these and can you instruct me on how to take these thanks.
 
gibbsy09 5 years ago
Although the questions here are not the best for gathering information for homoeopathic prescribing, I had a look over the symptoms (in response for your request for a second opinion).

The peculiar symptoms I was able to draw out of this only numbered 8, which isn't a lot. These symptoms are:

Stool, unsatisfactory or unfinished
Cold weather aggravates
Ailments from anticipation
Weak memory for names
Weeping impossible/unable to
Indecision
Loner
Horrible stories affect profoundly

Lycopodium 8/8
Sulphur 8/8
Alumina 7/8
Lachesis 7/8
Mercurius 7/8
China 7/8

Graphites scored for 5/8 of the symptoms (which is still pretty good). Homeo.mzp prescribes according to some ayevedic principles though, which is a fairly different to my classical approach. This means he will be looking at different things, and you might not completely understand the focus he has. I would still try the remedy and see what affect it has.

Lycopodium might be my choice, although I would need to take a different kind of case to be sure. Lycopodium and Graphites are differential medicines (meaning we often need to decide between the two of them, at least on the basis of the character of the patient). They are also both Psoric remedies, and have strong relationships to skin conditions.

simone is right, and you dont have to buy CHEWABLE TABLETS, you have to take normal PILLS and CHEW them, read the instructions WHICH I TOLD YOU carefully.

regarding spending a lot i may tell you there is nothing free in this world and no homeopath can claim 100% cure, also it depends on the patients own body's healing vital force.

the rubrics and symptoms i considered for you were--

Head- ITCHING, scalp
Skin- itching
feet- athlete's foot, fungus
sleep- unrefreshing
mind- anxiety, general
rectum- constipation, general
high desire for masturbation

thanks..

Hi-

Earlier on in the thread, directions for pills were included
by Homeo.mzp--

They are:

{if buying pills then 3 pills, 3 times a day for 2 days, chew it, dnt swallow with water}

dnt eat or drink anything 30 minutes before or after medicine-

Every prescriber has his own way to tell you the amount
of pills or liquid, etc-


For Homeo.mzp-many times "instructions" on the medicines are wrong- they will tell people to take it
3 or 4 times a day with no end point ( I guess to sell
more medicine)
