Sweaty Palms & Natural Cures
The phenomenon of Sweaty palms is very common. Many people suffer from it all across the world. One-fourth of the world’s population suffers from this condition, medically termed, palmar hyperhidrosis.
Medical experts suggest a hyperactive sympathetic nervous system is the main culprit behind the sweaty hand & palm condition. This basically means that the nervous system is signalling the sweat glands to produce sweat, but for some reason, in the case of hyperhidrosis sufferers, this sweat is produced excessively and persistently.
Sweating is used by the body to regulate the bodies temperature. It acts like a thermostat. In general, for the majority of the populous, it works to perfect condition. Sweat glands are present all over our bodies but are concentrated mostly in our hands.
What Triggers Excessive Sweating In The Body?
In normal conditions or situations the trigger that prompts the body to start producing sweat is generally; agitation due to stress, increase in surrounding temperature and physical exercise. The body thermostat regulates its normal temperature by producing sweat that cools on the outer surface of the body, helping us to cool.
However, when people suffer from palmar hyperhidrosis, that person experiences sweaty palms without any triggering event. This can cause acute social embarrassment, discomfort and anxiety to the sufferer, in much the same way as excessive underarm sweating.
Temporary solace from the symptoms of hyperhidrosis can sometimes be found in home remedies. They are said to be helpful in providing relief. However, though they may reduce the condition, they are rarely the cure.
Home Remedies For Sweaty Palms & Hands
The Tea Remedy
An effective way for reducing the sweaty palm and hand condition is to soak your hands in the tea. Simply take 5 tea bags and a quart of water. Boil the water, add the tea bags for about 10 minutes.
Allow the liquid to cool and then soak the hands in the tea for about half an hour every day/night. You should find after a few sessions that your hands and palms sweat a little less than before.
The Alcohol Remedy
Rubbing alcohol is another very effective remedy. Rub it into the palm of the hand. In doing so it cleanses the hands and help to absorb any moisture. The evaporation of the sweat makes the hands cooler and helps control in the process to stem and control, to some extent, excessive sweating.
However, one should take this remedy with a little caution as it can cause the palm of the hands to feel itchy. If you try this remedy, bear that in mind.
An instant quick-fix, in social situations, is carry a small bag of rosin in your right hand pocket. If you are required to shake a hand, quickly grip the rosin bag in your pocket so that the excessive sweat is absorbed by the bag. It’s an instant ‘sweat hack’ but not effective as a long term strategy. Rosin bags can be bought in the Tennis dept. of most sports outlets.
However, if you are not looking for short term relief to your sweaty palms, and want to seek out a long-term cure, you need to address the internal causes of your sweating and tackling all the factors that contribute to hyperhidrosis.
