The Best Natural Remedies For Preventing Excess Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)


Summer is finally here and outdoor activities are in full swing! While spending time outdoors in the hot weather can be enjoyable, it can trigger excess sweating, called hyperhidrosis, in some. People with hyperhidrosis can experience excess sweating in different areas throughout their body, thus no two cases are usually alike. Excess sweating especially during the heat of the summer season can be uncomfortable and frustrating to deal with. 

 

Conventional Treatments for excess sweating include botox and antiperspirants. Botox works to block the nerves that activate sweat glands and is usually only done to the underarms. Antiperspirants work by blocking the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat. These methods typically are not used for areas that sweat outside of underarms and offer only a band-aid solution to the problem. 

 

It is important to consider working towards healing the body from within, which is where medicinal herbs come into play.

 

Alternative medicine has been used for thousands of years in treating a variety of ailments from migraines, to skin conditions, to even preventing excess sweating. Below are some of the best herbs and treatments that help work towards naturally treating excess sweating from within:

 
  • Sage: Consuming sage tea or tablets can be beneficial in regulating sweat production due to its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and astringent properties.
  • Chamomile: Chamomile can be consumed as a tea or applied directly to sweaty areas using a cotton ball or pad. Chamomile is deodorizing and also carries anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and astringent properties that can help limit sweating and odour.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture works towards managing and relaxing the brain, which in turn reduces excessive sweating.
 

As hyperhidrosis affects people in different ways throughout their body, the best practice for the best results would be to consult with a naturopathic medicine practitioner, who can work with you on getting to the root of your hyperhidrosis condition.
