Is there any herbal concoction that can permanently remove facial hair?

Excess facial hair may be genetic or caused by hormone imbalance which may result from changes in menopause, drugs, dieting or problems in the reproductive system. A qualified medical professional should be consulted to determine the cause.

Herbs that are used in cases of hormonal imbalance are:

* Dandelion root supports the liver, which metabolizes hormones for excretion and,

* Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) balances hormones from the pituitary gland.

A diet high in fresh fruit and vegetables and low in food additives will support the liver in metabolizing hormones by decreasing another of its jobs: toxin elimination.
