Unwanted Facial and Body Hair

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Unwanted facial and body hair in women is known as hirsutism. The condition is caused by higher than normal androgen hormones in the body. Androgen is a male hormone that can cause hair to grow. When higher than normal levels of the hormone are found in women, hair begins to grow in unnatural locations.

Hirsutism affects roughly 8 percent of all women. The unwanted hair is most commonly found on the face, but can also be a problem on the chest and back.


Causes

Hormonal imbalances are the primary cause of this condition in women. Hormonal imbalances can be caused by a variety of factors including:
  • Diet
  • Genetics
  • Behaviors/ Activities
  • Medications
  • Life Stages
Hormonal changes in women often occur during puberty, pregnancy and during their periods. Birth control pills can easily throw off normal hormone levels causing a variety of problems such as acne and weight gain.

Other medications can have adverse side effects that can include unwanted hair growth. These include:
  • Anabolic Steroids
  • Danazol
  • Metoclopramide
  • Methyldopa
  • Phenothiazines
  • Progestin
  • Reserpine
  • Testosterone
Natural Solutions

To reduce unwanted hair on any part of the body where hair does not normally grow, working on your hormonal or endocrine system is the first step. While there are no herbs that promise to rid you of unwanted hair, many may help to lessen the problem. These herbs will work with your body on the inside to balance and restore the endocrine system:
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Licorice
  • Red Clover Tops
  • Fo-Ti Tieng
  • Maca
  • Blue Cohosh
  • Black Cohosh
  • Blessed Thistle
Changing your diet to one of natural, raw foods can be of help to the body as well. Try to avoid eating foods that are highly processed and contain added hormones. The added hormones could spike hormone levels in the body and create a larger problem. Eliminating chemical additives is also beneficial. Watch out for MSG, aspartame, lake dyes, BHT and all other unnatural ingredients.

Be sure to drink plenty of water. Water is the key component of health and our bodies function poorly without it. Aim to drink it least 8 glasses per day.

Detoxifying your body periodically throughout the year can be of help. This will help to reset all the body's functions, including the endocrine system.

The Ugly Truth About Factory Farming and the Chicken You Eat

Though America still eats more meat than any virtually other country in the world, consumption at home has been on a downward slide for the past several years. Concerns about factory farming methods and its environmental impact; animal welfare; potential health risks as well as the Meatless Monday movement, all have helped fuel the slide. And while some have cut out meat altogether, many people have simply swapped cows for chicken, thinking it a healthier or earth-friendlier option. Not surprisingly, the switchover to chicken has increased demand and the poultry industry has answered the call, in a way that’s anything but healthy for man or bird. In short, chicken’s got problems – and if you’re a poultry-eater, so do you. Let’s break it down:

Factory-farmed Chicken – It’s For The Birds

Factory-farmed chicken, aka Big Chicken, is the stuff of nightmares: over-stuffed coops, floors covered with excrement and thousands of live animals packed so tightly they’re barely able move, much less engage in comfort behaviors like pecking, wing-stretching or simply walking. The result: stressed-out chickens with reduced immunity to the illnesses that rip through over-crowded facilities. The sick birds (and often the well ones) receive multiple courses of antibiotics, traces of which eventually wind up in our bodies, and over time contribute to antibiotic resistance. In short, nothing good is happening down on the ol’ Big Chicken farm.
