- Natural remedies for dandruff #3: While some go back and forth
debating whether or not saturated fat can play a role in dandruff, it
is believed by us that it can. We highly recommend that you reduce the
amount of saturated fats in your diet. Replace these with healthy fats

water fish like mackerel and Alaskan tuna, to your menu at least twice

simmer for 10 minutes and then strain. Add a half of a teaspoon of
honey and drink. You can drink up to 3 cups a day. This is a powerful
herb so don`t give to children under six and start with a low dose for

years doctors thought the stories of yogi`s and Buddhist monks being
able to control things like body temperature, heart rate, blood
pressure and so on were just myth and folk lore. Now we know it`s all
With bio-feedback in the 1970`s science learned that we can
learn to control almost every bodily function with conscious thought.
A simple meditation is to sit straight in a chair... begin by
focusing on the breath; after you feel calm and have done a couple of
minutes of deep breathing, begin to imagine the toxins causing your
dandruff are leaving your body in a gray fog each time you exhale.
As you breath in imagine a blue healing light is entering your
body and going to the scalp making it completely restored to vibrant
health. Since stress is a factor in this condition, you will find that
meditation is helpful in reducing stress as well. Try this for 10 - 15
minutes everyday. Exercise a little faith and watch a small miracle
Remember that illness of any kind
is an imbalance in the body, mind
and spirit connection. Eat more fresh fruits, vegetables, fish,
exercise, meditate and do daily deep breathing along with practicing a
spiritual faith of your choosing.
