Natural Remedies for an Itchy Scalp

Posted by Mary (Brooksville, FL) on 12/20/2006

I am a new visitor. I am just beginning to try different things from this site such as ACV, molasses, baking soda, coconut oil, etc. I find this site so helpful. I will report more when I see results. The tea tree oil, lavender and aloe does help with itching scalp. I have gone to herbalists but they have you taking so much at such great expense and with minimal results if any at all. What I would love to know but have been unable to find out: Is there a way to know what supplements are beneficial to take daily or routinely and what supplements should be taken occasionally based upon age and weight?

It should be based upon minimum dosage and how the body responds, positive or negative, and we increase or decrease accordingly. Children in general is usually half of the adult dose. As to the weight thing, there is no clear grounds, but what I do know is people with more weight need much more alkaline forming foods and this dose is weight dependent, including the baking soda too but not absolutely since the length of the intestines is still the same, for equal height.
