Hello,
I am a 21 yrs old male, having a height of 5ft 6". I am having a problem of forgetfulness and hair loss. Both of these problems got prominent in the last 6 months. In my family no one has such kind of problems even in their 50s. I am also under weight (45 kg) but this is from the very beginning. I think the problems I am facing is due masturbation. Please provide me the cause and treatment to the mentioned problems.

Please get your B12 serum levels checked.
You are very young to suffer from sever memory loss or forgetfullness. Deficiency of B12 does lead to mood swings, memory loss in the elderly.

Take a healthy balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, fresh juices, soups, nuts, proteins and try to build a strong immune system. You could also take a antioxidant supplement (vit C, carotenoids, vit E, selenium) with B complex vitamins and omega 3 fats in form of flax seeds, flax seed oil, fish or a supplement.

This would definitely provide some relief from hair loss. Amla powder or amla juice would also be very beneficial.

If the hair loss is severe do consult a doctor who might suggest some medications ( Folliderm and a antioxidant) and ointments which would help.

But a healthy eating habits are importnat and foremost. Avoid junk foods, colas, fried items and foods that provide zero nourishment.

You should be carrying atleast one proper meal consisting of chappati, sprouts, a vegetable or dal along with a fruit from home. Other food options you could carry from home are paneer chappati roll, veg sandwitch, rice and dal, sprouts.You are currently consuming too much of junk and high fat food depleted in most of the nutrients. Fruits such as apples, pears, grapes, papaya or per say any fruit or salad you can carry from home would be the best mid meal option.
