This being said, almost everybody has to suffer from some problem related to hair at some stage in life, be it graying of hair, hair fall, dandruff or baldness.

Hair Cycle

A normal hair cycle lasts for 2 to 3 years. Every month each hair grows up to one centimeter and at any given point of time 90% of the hair are in the growing state. The rest 10% of the hair will be in the resting phase and on 3 to 4 months these resting hairs will fall out and new hair will start to grow in that place. 50 to 100 hair fall per day is normal, but when the hair fall exceeds the mark of 100 per day it is not considered normal and this condition is called HAIR FALL. This condition of hair fall needs to be treated with effective and safe herbal remedies available to solve this problem.

Testimonial

Disease :Back pain and Arthritis Back pain and Arthritis were the two things that had made my life a sad story. The pain was intolerable. I started taking allopathic medicines at the starting. The pain was less only when I take medicines otherwise not. I was sick of taking all those medicines every time to get rid of the pain. I wanted some permanent solution of the problem so that I can live without any pain. I was looking for some doctors on Internet who could help and at that time I came across the website of Family Care Clinic which provides herbal treatments to their patients which do not have any side effects. I mailed to Family Care Clinic to check whether they can help me with these two problems and Dr. Ritu responded to my query. They were ready to treat me for the disease of Back Pain and Arthritis. I got the medicines from them and they instructed me very well with the way to take them. After having the medicines for some time I felt much better. The back pain was gone and even the arthritis too was not showing up much. Dr. Ritu suggested me to complete the course of the medicines and assured me that this treatment would give a long-term result. Trust me these medicines do work and I have experienced them. The results are mind blowing and there are no side effects.
