Unwanted Facial and Body Hair
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.
Hormonal imbalances are the primary cause of this condition in women. Hormonal imbalances can be caused by a variety of factors including:
- Behaviors/ Activities
- Life Stages
Other medications can have adverse side effects that can include unwanted hair growth. These include:
- Anabolic Steroids
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:
- Red Clover Tops
- Fo-Ti Tieng
- Blue Cohosh
- Black Cohosh
- Blessed Thistle
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.
In addition to the recommendations listed above, DHerbs offers products that can help not only with the endocrine system, but with the whole body:
