Hirsutism refers to the growth of coarse, dark hair in areas where women typically grow fine hair or no hair at all – above the lip, and on the chin, chest, abdomen, and back. This growth is caused by an excess of any of the hormones called androgens (male hormones), which all women have in them normally.
Hirsutism – CAUSE
Hirsutism is caused by an excess production or action of androgens, usually by the ovaries or adrenal glands. Several different conditions can lead to hirsutism. The two most common causes of hirsutism are polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and idiopathic hirsutism. Both are diagnosed by physical examination, medical and family history, and, sometimes, blood tests that help exclude the rare causes of hirsutism
Homeopathy Treatment & Homeopathic Remedies for Hirsutism
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The medicines given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition. The symptoms listed against each medicine may not be directly related to this disease because in homeopathy general symptoms and constitutional indications are also taken into account for selecting a remedy. To study any of the following remedies in more detail, please visit our Materia Medica section. None of these medicines should be taken without professional advice.
