How to Treat Hyperhidrosis With This Tea
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that causes you to sweat excessively, most often on your hands, feet, face and under your arms. There may be other medical reasons for you to sweat heavily, including the use of some medications and menopause-induced hot flashes. Natural remedies, such as drinking tea may provide you with some relief, though solid scientific evidence may be lacking in some cases. Consult your physician before using any new supplement or home remedy to treat your perspiration problems.
Drink herbal tea made with sage leaves to combat your excessive sweating. Sage is an astringent herb, which causes drying in your body. The International Hyperhidrosis Society says that reduction of sweating from sage tea has not been researched fully and that stories of success are mostly anecdotal.
The Effects of Alcohol & Sun
Add a cup of green tea to your nightly routine if you suffer from hyperhidrosis. Disabled World, a resource providing information and possible solutions about a wide range of disabilities, says that the high concentration of antioxidants in green tea can be beneficial to your problem. The antioxidants can flush your system of toxins that cause you to sweat and cause your sweat to take on a bad odor.
Stop excessive sweating by lowering your body temperature. Instead of drinking hot teas, try them on ice. According to the North American Menopause Society, cold drinks can help your fluctuating hormones regulate your body temperature more effectively, which can lead to fewer hot flashes 2. People who are not menopausal can also benefit from a cooler body temperature to prevent sweating.
