Has anyone ever had success with naturally treating or curing palmar hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms)?

I'm wondering what things might play a factor in sweaty palms - for example diet, hormones, stress, etc. I have a friend who's dealing with this issue and I'd love to help her find a natural way to overcome it.

I'm loving all of these responses, and I agree with all of them so far. My partner used to struggle with palmar hyperhidrosis, and now that it is gone I can safely say that in her case, it was likely caused by anxiety.

She went through the Total Body Modification (TBM) Autonomic Recovery Program (ARP), which is the primary program that I utilize in my practice. TBM utilizes a combination of diet and lifestyle counseling and hands-on body/energywork to turn on the body's self-healing mechanisms so it can fix itself.

This drastically helped her anxiety in all areas of her life, including her sweaty palms.

While I know that life isn't as simple as "cure anxiety", it really depends on what the underlying cause is, and that can be difficult to determine without a one-on-one session with a holistic practitioner.

If seeking out a practitioner isn't an option, remember the basics! Drink plenty of water, get good sleep, breathe clean air, eat nourishing food, and have healthy, fulfilling relationships.

Heilkunst homeopathy works like a time machine, by clearing the most recent trauma in your life, then working backwards in time.

Homeopathy can help, as it can address and clear out the underlying causes of the symptom. It's amazing!

Let me help you get unstuck and take action on your goals using habit building, mindfulness, and ancestral health principles.

If you've confirmed there is not an emotional trigger, then you may consider a magnesium deficiency, which is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies. You could experiment with adding more magnesium-rich foods into the diet, such as leafy greens, avocados, seeds and nuts. One tip to deal both with stress and magnesium is to take a nice, warm bath with Epsom or other bath salts.

I always consider the thoughts and emotions first when thinking about ANY physical issue. The trigger for palmer hyperhidrosis is "feeling soiled" having come in contact with something that is considered "repellant". Could be dirt, vomit, feces, urine, semen, saliva, blood, sweat or being forced to be in contact with a person considered "repulsive", dirty, etc.

The emotional "shock" of this event causes the skin to react (in this case the sweat glands) by proliferating. During the healing phase the sweat glands are removed by fungi and bacteria causing a more malodorous condition.

The resolution is to bring to awareness to the triggering event (will have happened just prior to the onset of the symptoms) and energetically work out the disturbance using something like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or taking the new energy remedies known as Infoceuticals.

These remedies help create harmony in the emotional body and allow the memories to be worked out in dreams or insights. This allows the healing phase to commence.
