Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men, in which the breast tissues become swelled and take on a fuller look that can be embarrassing for many. It occurs as a result of irregular levels of hormones in the body during puberty.
The most common cause of gynecomastia is changes in the levels of hormones androgens and estrogens. This can happen due to a variety of reasons including puberty, age, hypogonadism, low testosterone (male hormone), hyperthyroidism, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, chronic liver disease, exposure to pollutants, kidney failure, use of marijuana, excess alcohol consumption, malnutrition, and side effects of certain medications. Being overweight can also add to the problem.
Many men find it really tough to cope with the condition and opt for medication or even surgery. Ayurvedic medicine offers complete cure of gynecomastia. It is worth noting that in recent years, medicine has made great progress in this field. So, if you looking for a permanent solution for your male breasts, yes it is possible with Ayurveda. Surgery can be avoided.
If you are over weight & fatty then its normal to have some extra fat in your breast area. But if you have problem with that try some specific exercise to burn out that fat. If you have excessive big male breast then go for surgery- medicine doesn't usually help much.
