Alternative Methods To Treat Gynecomastia

No man wants to have those dreaded man’s tits. Not only does it look maleish, it can also bring down your confidence and self-esteem.

But while male breast reduction surgery can solve your male breast problems, not everyone is interested in experiencing any type of surgery. Actually, treating gynecomastia (or enlarging the male breasts) without surgical intervention can be complicated. Not all methods work as well as expected.

But if you still want to try them, then five more popular non-surgical alternatives for male breast reduction surgery are presented.

Adequate diet and exercise


If your gynecomastia is caused mainly by fats, then a proper diet such as reducing fatty foods can help. It is advisable to follow a low-fat diet, as this will give your body the opportunity to burn excessive calories under the skin, including the chest area. To know if your tits are only fatty tissue, you will notice that they wobble when you move and that both sides are equally affected.

Coupling the right diet with cardiovascular exercises can help your body get rid of excess fat not only in your breasts but also in the rest of your body. You may also want to build chest muscles by doing push-ups. This makes your chest muscles more bulky, strength training exercises also speed up your metabolism, helping you burn more fat. This is a great lifestyle modification especially for overweight and obese people.

However, it is important to keep in mind that proper diet and exercise will only work for patients with pseudoginecomastia ie those with enlarged breasts caused by excess fat. But if you suffer from true gynecomastia (where there is also an overabundance of mammary gland tissues other than fats) a proper diet and exercise will not help so much.

Alternative remedies

Some of the alternative remedies that are said to treat gynecomastia include homeopathy, Ayurveda, acupuncture and yoga. However, keep in mind that the treatment of gynecomastia with these methods can take time, in addition there is no guarantee that they will work.


Homeopathic treatments are personalized medications prepared after analyzing the physical, mental and emotional condition of the patient. They can restore hormonal balance, thus decreasing the size of your breasts. To treat the underlying cause of gynecomastia , homeopathy involves administering a small amount of diluted substance that causes the condition.
For example, if your gynecomastia was caused by the intake of steroids , then a dilute steroid-like substance like Orchitinum will be used to treat your gynecomastia . Other homeopathic medicines used to treat gynecomastia include Mercurius Solubilis 200C, Plumbum Iodatum and Pineal 6.


Another alternative treatment is Ayurveda, which makes use of roots and herbs to eliminate the cause of gynecomastia . According to this alternative Indian medicine, half a teaspoon of powdered ingredients such as Chebulic Myrobalan, Beleric Myrobalan, dried ginger, black pepper, Pippali, and currant can be mixed with a teaspoon of honey to treat gynecomastia . These should be taken twice a day.

There are also topical Ayurvedic treatments that you can use to decrease the size of your breasts. For example, you can heat the powdered camphor oil and pepper powder and mix them in 100 ml of mustard oil. After cooling a little, apply the warm oil to your breasts one hour before bathing.


Acupuncture is another alternative remedy that you can presumably use to get rid of gynecomastia . This 2000-year-old Chinese treatment involves the use of needles to prick the skin and tissues to relieve pain and treat any medical condition, including gynecomastia . It is believed that diseases happen when there are blockages in the flow of life force in the body. Acupuncture aims to get rid of blockages in these meridians by inserting them in certain points of the body. Contrary to what it seems, acupuncture needles only cause a tingling sensation and not much pain.

Apart from getting rid of chest fat, acupuncture can also provide the hormonal balance that is very important in treating the underlying cause of gynecomastia . It also has a number of other health benefits, such as improving liver function, treating obesity, and relieving depression.


Yoga is good for body and mind training, it helps in gynecomastia , since there are yoga postures that focus on the trunk and chest region, they are said to be effective in the treatment of gynecomastia in the way natural. Some of these poses include the pose of the fish, the pose of the wheel, the pose of the semi-wheel, the attitude of the bow, and the attitude of the tree.

Apart from decreasing the fat in the chest, yoga also helps to tighten the chest area, resulting in a flatter chest. It also improves blood circulation by helping to reduce fat deposits throughout the body.

Herbal treatments

There are also certain herbs that are said to cure gynecomastia . A popular one is turmeric , a plant from the ginger family and boasting a variety of health benefits. To treat gynecomastia , it is necessary to take a daily dose of 20 grams of grated turmeric root in a period of 30 days. However, the success rate of this treatment varies, with some patients reported a decrease in breast size, while others only report that it reduces pain and pain in the chest area.

Pills and breast reduction medications

There are a lot of male breast reduction pills available in the market, all contain active ingredients that reduce estrogen levels or increase testosterone levels. There are even drugs that promise to do both. Examples of these drugs are clomiphene and tamoxifen, which are both selective modulators of estrogen receptors. Letrozole, which is an androgen inhibitor, is also being marketed for the prevention of breast cancer. However, more studies are needed to support these claims.

Topical creams

Topical treatments involve the use of creams, gels or serums to reduce the fat cells around the breast tissues. Although these creams are certainly non-invasive, virtually painless, and much cheaper than gynecomastia surgery , their effects of breast reduction (especially for true gynecomastia ) have not yet been fully tested. It can also take a long time before you notice any result “if you do”.

Easy Tips to Lose Weight Fast

The best way to lose weight, get more energy and replace your unhealthy habits with healthy is to take it easy. Try to live a little healthier every day. Instead of a glass of cola , you take a glass of water. Then you do nothing else for the rest of the day to lose weight. Once that is in your system (drinking the water), then you take a healthy habit.

You can continue to do this process by the way. You can always live healthier even if you are already doing very well.

For example, I notice with myself that after the holiday I have been slackening a bit. It’s time to pick up, improve and carry out my old healthy habits again!

Slow food is healthier

By eating more slowly, your body has the time to link back that you have eaten enough. If you eat very fast you will get a lot more than you need, this will result in weight gain. It takes 20 minutes before your brain gives a signal that you are satisfied. That is why it is better to eat, enjoy and especially not rush!

Why do you crave food (be honest)?

One of the biggest reasons why people eat too much is out of boredom. A lot of people are looking forward to popping on the couch in the evening, switching on television and eating a bag of chips (I had too). When you are hungry from boredom you are not really hungry, it is rather an emotional reaction to prevent boredom. Moreover, it can also be a habit to eat a lot during specific moments.

So it took a long time for me not to eat chips during an exciting movie. Now I know from myself that during an exciting film I like to have something to nibble. Meanwhile I have replaced the bag of chips with a nut mix, again it is the small adjustments that make the difference.

Go spicy food

Research (4) shows that spicy food can make you less likely to get hungry. Moreover, spicy herbs ensure that your metabolism gets a boost. I am a fan of chili myself and do not get enough of it. It is certainly recommended to eat more Mexican with spicy herbs!

A nice soup for every meal

A great and healthy way to eat less and eat healthier is by eating a soup regularly. Healthy (fresh) soups consist mainly of water, vegetables, sometimes some meat and some vermicelli. The result is that you will be full faster when you take a soup as before.

Start very small when it comes to sports

For many people it is a huge mountain when it comes to exercising regularly. Especially if you have not done sports for years. To break that, it is much better to start very small. Instead of running every day, start with a short 5-minute walk. Then the next 7.5 minutes, next week instead of walking you go jogging. So you build up momentum and you do not make it unnecessarily difficult.

How to Reduce man’s Breasts

If you have large breasts and want to reduce them , do not worry, you can do it but you must take a multifaceted approach to reduce their size. The enlargement of the breasts in men is called gynecomastia and has a range of possible causes and treatments. With dedication and determination, you can return the body to your male figure and in the process start a healthier lifestyle.

Steps to follow:


Make an appointment with your doctor to determine the cause of the disproportion of your breasts. The possible causes are obesity, medications, low testosterone levels and the consumption of estrogen of vegetable origin. It is normal for teens to experience an increase in breasts due to the fluctuation of testosterone levels during development.

Reduce the sources of plant estrogens in the diet. The most common sources of plant estrogens are foods such as soy, tofu, soy milk, flax seeds, sesame seeds, chickpea purée, garlic, mung beans, dates, dried apricots, sunflower seeds, peanuts, beans, almonds and alfalfa sprouts.

Reduce exposure to inorganic xenoestrogens . Xenoestrogens are environmental chemicals that cause hormonal disorders in men and women. Some of the most common sources of xenoestrogens are insecticides, herbicides.

Exercise regularly to lose excess weight and promote testosterone levels. For many men with enlarged breasts, it is the result of increased weight and adipose tissue being stored in the chest area. Combine aerobic fitness with weight training to strengthen your body and improve your chest muscle shape.

Talk to your doctor about medical treatments if you have completed the steps above and still feel worried about breast growth. Possible medical options include drugs to balance hormone levels, surgery and plastic surgery as a last resort.
