Taking Charge of Your Health

Certain medical conditions can be embarrassing
to have and therefore may leave the person afraid to seek treatment for fear of judgement
and/or ridicule. One such condition that affects men is called
Gynecomastia, which is the enlargement of the breast glands. This usually occurs when an irregularity of
hormones are present during puberty. This condition can be embarrassing, uncomfortable
and painful. It is important to seek immediate medical
attention if there is pain, swelling, or discharge from the nipples. Today’s video will explore some home remedies
that can help treat this condition. 1. Fish Oil
Fish oil not only reduces the amount of estrogen in the body, but it also encourages the body
to create testosterone. Since hormone levels are a main contributor
to gynecomastia, fish oil can be a beneficial treatment. Simply take a fish oil supplement, as well
as an Omega-3 supplement. Of course, as with any supplement, be sure
to consult with your doctor prior to beginning a new supplement or treatment. Also, you can obtain fish oil naturally by
consuming cold water fish, such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. 2. Cold Compress
With gynecomastia, the breast tissues can become painful and tender. A cold compress can help to contract the breast
tissue and therefore reduce pain and swelling. You can make a cold compress at home by using
a few ice cube and wrapping them in a light towel. It is important that you do not place the
ice cubes directly onto your skin, since that can result in burns and damage to your skin
and tissues. 3. Turmeric
Turmeric can increase testosterone levels in men and therefore decrease the engorgement
of the breast tissue. Just add one to two teaspoons of turmeric
into a cup of water and then heat for ten minutes. Consume this tea two to three times per day. As Always, it is important to consult your
doctor prior to adding turmeric to your routine. It can make stomach problems worse and exacerbate
gallbladder problems and blood thinners. 4. Zinc
Zinc can naturally increase the amount of testosterone in the body. Therefore, consuming foods that are high in
zinc, such as oysters, yogurt, chickpeas and fortified breakfast cereal, are imperative
in the treatment of gynecomastia. You can also add zinc supplements, if recommended
by your doctor. 5. Passion Flower
Passion flower also increases the production of testosterone in the body, which counteracts
this condition. Use one teaspoon of dried passion flower and
steep in one cup of hot water for ten minutes. Consume this tea a few times per day. You can also add a passion flower supplement
if it is recommended by your doctor. 6. Milk Thistle
Milk thistle can improve liver functioning. So, if your condition is caused by liver disease,
milk thistle can help. Take one teaspoon of crushed milk thistle
seeds and add to 3 cups of water. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 20
minutes. Then, strain and consume several times throughout
the day. Again, this can be taken as a supplement if
your doctor recommends it. 7. Exercise
Exercise can help to balance hormones in the body, get rid of excess fat and firm up chest
and torso muscles. Any exercise that helps to decrease the fat
content inside the body will help, including running, walking, swimming, etc. 8. Flaxseed
Flaxseeds help to remove harmful toxins in the body, as well as assist with the production
of testosterone. Take one glass of hot water and mix one teaspoon
of flaxseeds and consume this each day. You can also consume 1 to 2 teaspoons of flaxseed
oil or add ground flaxseeds to smoothies or baked items. 9. Epsom Salt
Taking an epsom salt bath is both relaxing and can help to reduce the appearance of gynecomastia. Just add two cups of epsom salt to a bathtub
full of warm water. Be sure to stir the epsom salt until it dissolves. It is important to note that this not recommended
for people with high blood pressure or heart problems. 10. Dandelion
Dried dandelion can also help this condition. Since it is a diuretic, it can remove excess
water and bloat from the body. Make tea with one teaspoon of dried dandelion
and one cup hot water. Allow to steep for ten minutes. It is also important that you do not take
performance enhancing supplements, as they may exacerbate the condition. The same goes for alcohol and tobacco products. Avoid tea tree oil and lavender oils, as they
can cause the body to mimic the production of estrogen.

  13. Ayurveda ancient Sanskrit RigVeda Holistic health principles: enlarged breast in men relates to KAPHA DOSHA (excess) relates to the Water Element (excess fluids in the body, including excess skin, and relates to hormonal imbalances) Ayurveda health principles relate to the Sidereal Vedic astrology systems only: KAPHA dosha relates to Moon, Venus and Jupiter (as well as "Sidereal" Cancer, Taurus, and Pisces; including Libra and Sagittarius; not western astrology Greek system)
    excessive weight retention can also play a roll which relates to KAPAHA dosha imbalances in the body

    Ayurveda holistic health only works using the sidereal astrological traditional vedic eastern astrology systems.

    Many Ayurveda herbs can aid in helping with excess Kapha dosha; Triphala and turmeric are great starter herbs.

    (best to consult an Ayurveda Master that can give best herbal remedies related to Kapha dosha imbalances in the body)

    3000+ year old Ayurveda systems vs modern western medical guessing & labeling …. Namaste

  14. I need answers I’ve had this all my life, like I didn’t realize it till I got older. Reading articles said it was suppose to go away from 6months -2 years but I tracked down how I had it was when I was just 8 😓

  15. I got gyno around 14 and still have it at 18 not sure when or if it will go away naturally. I’m pretty lean but it sticks out so much that I’m embarrassed to take my shirt off even though I have a six pack. Really hope it goes away.

  16. Wtf I just looked at myself in the mirror today and realized that my right breast is bigger than my left I've suffered from sever stress and depression lately I don't know if that could be the cause

  17. Total BS, as the normal cause is the body not properly processing testosterone, so adding more only makes it worst.

  18. In many conditions Gynecomastia is caused by the body not properly using testosterone, and turning the excess into estrogen as a way to deal with the excess. So adding extra will only make the condition worse!!!! Talk to your Dr before listening to total bullshit online!!!
