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.

    Q: I usually wear an Afro, but now I keep my hair in braids under a hat. A month ago my hair began to break, and my scalp got very dry. So, I started using shea butter, and olive oil. It started to work, soon after I made the mistake of putting braids, with synthetic fibers in my hair. It tore the sides of my hair out. I have about 6 or more inches of my hair left. What should I do now?

    A:

    Pour the oil into your palms, and then rub into you hair and then comb! Hair should be shiny, and smell good.

    Q: I am writing to you because I recently had my blood checked for hormone levels, it turns out I am producing more of some male hormone in large amounts. I think its called the DHAEs, in any case the endocrine specialist says it could be cysts on my ovaries or a tumor in my adrenals that is making my count 163 where a normal woman produces this hormone at a 79 count, of course I am not claiming any tumors, and I asked her to send me back to the lab to "retake" a sample...before I go back, I would like to try regulate the glandular function with your help and see if the results differ.

    A:

    HMMM, DHAE OR DE-HYDRO EPI-ANDROSTERONE IT'S CALLED AND IS SOMEWHAT UNIQUE BECAUSE THE HORMONE "ANDROSTERONE" IS UNISEXUAL AND BOTH SEXES OR GENDERS PRODUCE IT BUT IT'S REALLY A FEMALE HORMONE BUT HAS BEEN GIVEN OR ATTRIBUTED TO MALES TO BALANCE WOMEN HAVING 2 HORMONES: PROGESTERONE AND ESTROGEN, AND SO NOW MALES HAVE TESTOSTERONE AND ANDROSTERONE. WELL, CLEARLY A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND DENOTES A DEFICIENCY WITH THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. RARELY, I WOULD AGREE WITH THE ENDOCRINOLOGIST IN THIS CASE BECAUSE DHAE IS PRODUCED IN AND SECRETED BY THE ADRENAL GLANDS. BUT YOU SEE, WHETHER OVARIES OR ADRENALS, YOU ARE DEALING WITH "GLANDS" AND IT STILL POINTS TO THE HORMONAL OR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SO FOR SURE WE KNOW THE PROBLEM IS HERE WITH THIS BODILY SYSTEM (ENDOCRINE OR HORMONAL). FOR SURE ... I MOST DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND. WITHOUT A DOUBT I AM SUGGESTING THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE AND THE ADRENALIZER FORMULA (REMOVE ONE OF THE FORMULAS FROM THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE THAT YOU FEEL YOU DON'T NEED AND SUPPLEMENT WITH ADRENALIZER FORMULA.)

    Q: I need some advice on whether I am taking the right herbs to balance my hormones. I have a mustache and a lot of hair on my face and acne. So I take saw palmetto for that. Also, I had an ovary removed about 2 years ago. Since then I have a problem with vaginal dryness and very low sex drive. I am always moody and irritated by everything. I am currently taking saw palmetto, vitex chaste berry, dong quai, and wild yam root, all in the form of a capsule. Please tell me if this combination is good for me.

    A:

    THE COMBINATION IS GOOD, BUT YOU HAVE A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON YOUR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. LOOK INTO OUR TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. YOU ARE PRODUCING MORE MALE-BASED HORMONES THAN FEMALE-BASED HORMONES. READ OUR ARTICLE â€FEMALE HORMONAL REPLACEMENT THERAPYâ€
