Excessive sweating also known as Hyperhidrosis is nothing other than a nuisance which serves to cause awkwardness and embarrassment. It simply cramps your style. I mean who would like to look at someone walking down the road, or any other place for that matter, with large sweat patches under their armpits – not a single a soul.
Then why would anyone want to become the victim of this horrendous problem. Again, if someone is already suffering from this disease he/she would only be a fool if they hadn’t tried to get rid of it. Here are a few herbal remedies which you might want to try out for this purpose.
Herbal Remedies For Excessive Sweating
Burdock is the best herbal remedy for excessive sweating. It works from within your body by directing extra fluids to be excreted not from your sweat pores but from the your kidney and bowel. However, like all other good things in the world, it comes with its own set of problems.
Burdock tastes unbelievably bitter. It is impossible for most people to dink burdock tea without throwing up. However, this problem has an easy enough solution. You can take in burdock in the form of a tincture which is available in all health stores.
Sage and Chamomile Tea
Sage has always been renowned for its healing traits. It serves the purpose of reducing excessive sweating just as skilfully. Chamomile though good for your body is used more to overshadow the bitter taste of sage. All you need to do to brew this tea is boil a cup of water. Then turn off the gas and add one tablespoon of fresh sage leaves along with a few chamomile petals.
Let the essence of these herbs seep into the water. Then strain the mixture, add honey for taste and drink it. Drink this tea twice daily for three to four weeks. Then lay off it for a few days. Drinking sage tea continuously for long periods of time causes bleeding problems and these prove to be more cumbersome than excessive sweating.
Store brought antiperspirants seem to work for a while but cause a great load of problems later on. Using natural antiperspirants is therefore a better option. Witch hazel due to its astringent properties serves this purpose well. All you need to do is crush the herb to extract its oil and then apply it gently over your face and skin.
Wheatgrass juice flushes out excess toxins from your body, besides providing nutrition. In the process of doing so it reduces the excessive sweating caused by your lymph nodes. It’s not too bad to taste and should be taken regularly if you wish to rid yourself of your problem.
This is another herb which might prove to be helpful. It isn’t too foul to taste so you can easily make and consume astragalus tea. You may even, if you don’t favour tea, add this herb as a supplement to your favourite drink! Though this herb proves to be effective most of the times there have been cases where it didn’t suit its consumer and instead of reducing sweating, increased it.
