But the liver has a remarkable property - it is able to rebuild its cells. There are natural remedies that help reduce the load on the liver and thus create the necessary reserves to restore it. These include, primarily, lecithin.
The admission of lecithin saves in a while the liver from the need to produce it own (lecithin is one of its major secrets), but lecithin also helps clean the liver from fatty deposits. Lecithin increases the effectiveness of treatment for practically all women's diseases.
One of the most effective hepatoprotectors is silymarin, contained in milk thistle. This substance has unique properties that contribute to the restoration of hepatocytes. In combination with the amino acids arginine, cysteine and methionine, silymarin restores the detoxication function of the liver. Therefore, the priority means to restore normal liver function should be regarded the consistent implementation of the course of lecithin and Liver Aid.
Should also take into account that liver disease does not occur in a vacuum. Most often they occur because of chronic malnutrition, too fatty, sugary and high-calorie food. Therefore, for successful treatment of hirsutism, changing nature of nutrition is absolutely necessary.
As already mentioned, hirsutism is often accompanied by obesity, and this further aggravates the situation, since obesity violates estrogen metabolism and increases androgen levels (so-called extraglandular synthesis that occurs in adipose tissue). Your endocrinologist, probably, would not say you that in obesity is recommended to use hormone replacement therapy, first to reduce body weight. Well, maybe he will gently hint.
Meanwhile, with hirsutism and obesity, prior conduct discharge diet is recommended. Because the dietary food can effectively reduce the level of androgens in women with overweight, patients in the treatment of hirsutism with obesity is recommended a diet low in carbohydrate. Carbohydrate content in the daily diet should not exceed 150-200 g, fat - 70-80 g; pastries should be avoided.
Reduced thyroid function disturbs the secretion of luteinizing hormone and ovarian dysfunction. But there is another unpleasant consequence of thyroid dysfunction. Since the thyroid gland is the main "hygienist" of organism, lack of iodine in the thyroid gland does not allow it to fully decontaminate the blood, which leads to activation of different infectious agents, including the reproduction of the parasitic flagellate - trichomonas.
According to several studies, trichomonas, fungi and other parasites are responsible for many cases of tumors and cysts. Moreover, vaginal trichomonas is the most active and pathogenic. A survey of women aged 16-58 years in the gynecological office showed the presence of vaginal trichomonas in all patients. However, in most cases, trichomonas is inactive, cyst-like form, and only when creating favorable conditions for its reproduction it becomes the active form.
The tumor is not formed just by itself. Any tumor is a consequence of the inflammatory process, and each inflammatory has its infectious agent. Since hirsutism is often associated with polycystic ovaries or adrenal tumors, even in the case of unknown causes of the disease, is recommended the normalization of thyroid function and target antiparasitic therapy.
For normal thyroid function, it must be first ensured by adequate amount of iodine. Meanwhile, the iodine in many regions is scarce a trace element. Profound deficiency of iodine leads to thyroid diseases, but much more common relative scarcity - to a hardly noticeable at first glance, but nonetheless very serious disturbances of functions of many organs.
Use of iodized salt is of little as inorganic iodine poorly absorbed by the body. Much more efficient sources of iodine are nutraceuticals, such as Ocean 21, Chlorella-Spirulina Plus. "Ocean-21", moreover, contains an extract of Pau d'Arco, therefore it can be used for antiparasitic therapy, including anti-trichomonas.
Low-carb diet (it is also desirable according the blood group), the recovery of the liver and thyroid gland plus pest treatment - this are the first and necessary steps in the "additional" treatment of hirsutism of any etiology.
Further application of nutraceuticals in the treatment of hirsutism depends on the diagnosis. If it sounds like "idiopathic hirsutism" and that is all - and treatment will be general in nature. Next nutraceuticals in that case should certainly help:
Natural Vitamin E Complex (Mega Vitamin E). The more in your diet of vitamin E, the less the likelihood of various neoplastic processes. Its protective effect is particularly enhanced in combination with vitamin C, carotenoids, selenium and other antioxidants (Mega Protect 4 Life).
Selenium is one of the strongest antioxidants in itself; to the same, its enough content in the body stops production of glutathione, a major antioxidant enzyme. Deficiency of selenium is a very common phenomenon in all continental regions. Most appropriate shape for the body is selenmetionin (Pro Selenium 50 mcg). The required dose is 100-200 mg per day.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially gamma-linolenic and docosohexaenoic effectively inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which converts testosterone into the active fraction (DHT). A good source of gamma linolenic acid is Evening primrose oil, and docosohexaenoic acid (DHA) - fat of coldwater fish (salmon, sardines, tuna and other).
From plant sources, most of DHA found in jojoba oil (external agent). For intake recommended capsules containing a standardized extract of fish oil - Omega-3.
Women's formulas VitalWoman and Menopausal Formula are a source of phytoestrogens, which counterbalance the increased production of male hormones and decrease the production of dihydrotestosterone. VitalVumen also contains an extract of Serenoa repens, which helps reduce oily skin and reduce the growth of body hair.
When hirsutism, it is best to take these two formulas together, as they complement each other perfectly, shifting hormonal balance in favor of estrogen. A good idea also is to complete this combination with Bee Power (an extract of royal jelly).
Phytoestrogens are good also because they can take a long time without fear of side effects, which can not be said of hormonal preparations. Antiandrogenic drugs, in particular, in chronic intake may lead to suppression of production body own androgens, i.e., excessive shift in the "feminine" side. Then you can become a squeaky voice, there will be crying, excessive emotionality, inability to protect yourself.
All of these nutraceuticals can be used in the treatment of hirsutism in conjunction with allopathic therapy, and as a support during the rest of the drugs.
