What kind of treatment is best to treat pimples on scalp? Which is best allopathy, homeopathy, or ayurveda?
It depends: This depends on whether you've already been through allopathic evaluation and treatments for these pimples, what your doctors have advised, and what you're wanting to do now.

Homeopathy: I can speak for homeopathy -- and there are many homeopathic remedies which can help with these complaints.

The homeopath will explore your entire history so that the remedy prescribed will help at a deep level. You may also need to change your eating as well. ...Read more
Yes: Homeopathy & Ayurveda offer treatments for virtually any condition because they attempt to balance the whole person rather than focusing on the diagnosis.

Please see my comment for additional information. ...Read more

Who knows?: You can try anything you would like, but the benefits can only be assessed by results.

Not for this alone: Homeopathic treatment won't help breast growth unless you're in your early developmental years, growing them. It's not suitable treatment for a 31-yo woman seeking breast enhancement.

No guarantee about breast size though. ...Read more
I'm on homeopathy treatment (melifica, p.O.L 1000, oophorin) as per my doc for having pcos. Will it work? And how does it work? Or any other advice?
Maybe, unknown, yes: Homeopathy is proven to be effective for many conditions and can definitely help pcos, but is very individualized so it will work if those are appropriate remedies for you and won't if they're not! If those don't work there are other remedies that probably will. Though homeopathy has been used since the late 1700's no one know exactly how it works! diet, exercise and herbs also help- see comment:. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Ayurveda looks at general dosha types, responding with dietary and lifestyle interventions to ameliorate imbalances. This can work in conjunction with homeopathic interventions, but the combination is not automatically "better." Homeopathic treatments are very individualized for specific problems, rather than being prescribed for general "types." The practitioner is a huge variable in this. ...Read more

A well-prescribed homeopathic remedy (based on the whole person) can assist one's innate healing system to normalize whatever the body can normalize itself. It cannot grow new organs, though. Please beware of so-called "homeopathic" cures that are absolutely not homeopathy -- such as a posting I saw elsewhere about eating animal testes. ...Read more

No: It would be criminal not to use an evidence-based, 21st century treatment for something this deadly. Ayurvedic remedies are interesting but are at best adjuncts. If a person is crippled or brain-damaged after being poisoned with thallium, a variety of "alternative" / "complementary" medicines may make a person feel better or give hope / a sense of power. But don't expect any to remove thallium. ...Read more
Not: Ayurvedic treatment not good for anything. It useless. It based on primitive superstitions & fallacies without a lick of scientific evidence.
