Todays topic for discussion: Brittle nails.....white lines / spots in nails..
Dr. Nitin Shah (Canada): It is believed that brittle nails and white spots are signs of unwholesome Asthi Dhatu, which is a sign of some micro nutrients and mineral deficiencies which can be corrected by supplementation and correcting the Agni. Sneha Marta basti also plays a great role
Vd. Khushdil (Australia): For Brittle nail..Massage with coconut oil regularly at bed time and morning.
Eat a cup of yogurt or 1 lit. buttermilk daily in afternoon for calcium deficiency... It can be a cause of that.. Get 1 fig, 2 dates and 2 Almonds ..soak it over night and have it in the next morning at empty stomach with soaked water. Which will help you to get all micro nutrients....
Dr Bhagyashri Panchal: Very nice and simple treatment,we can suggest patient...Thanks.
Basically nails are considered body's mirror.
For brittleness: mix camphor 10g + Castor oil 100g warm to dissolve camphor. Massage finger tips including nails daily at night. Deficiency of calcium, iorn and vitamins. Lots of sprouts and leafy vegetables help.
For pus formation: give dressing with panchvalk kwath. Mahamanjishthadi orally. Crushed leafy paste of Tridax procumbens for applications is a sure shot regimen.
Group 6:Vd. Uday Kulkarni: For Brittle nails…Basti course with tikta kshira sarpis, Three sitting every 3 weeks interval, for six months, Gives long term results
