In Traditional Chinese Medicine this specific herbal formula supports water metabolism to properly distribute fluids throughout the entire body. Sweaty hands and feet are the result of fluids seeping disproportionately to the extremities. This formula rectifies water metabolism by strengthening the organs of digestion to properly distribute fluids so that the hands and feet do not sweat excessively.**

Standard Usage:

For adults, as a dietary supplement, take 10 pills after breakfast and lunch with warm water twice daily. If taking other medications or supplements, allow at least 2 hours before or after using this product.


In Western Medicine

There are two conditions, focal hyperhidrosis and generalized hyperhidrosis.

In focal hyperhidrosis, also called primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is localized. In generalized hyperhidrosis or secondary hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating affects the entire body.  The cause of primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis is unknown in the majority of cases, but western science suspects it to be related to genetic defects. Secondary hyperhidrosis is believed to be caused by an underlying health condition, such as obesity, gout, menopause, tumor, mercury poisoning, diabetes mellitus, or hyperthyroidism.  Treatments options could be iontophorese, botox injections, anticholinergic drugs, or surgical in severe cases.

In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)

According to TCM, sweaty hands and feet are caused by external factors: either wind cold or wind heat that affect the internal organs. A prolonged condition may lead to Lung, Stomach and Spleen, and also Kidney dysfunction. There are four disharmony patterns that could lead to sweaty hands and feet: damp heat in the Spleen and Stomach; coldness in the Spleen and Stomach; yin deficiency in the Heart and Kidney; and insufficiency of Heart yang. The Spleen system controls the muscles and the limbs -nourishment of the four extremities is supplied by the Spleen. When the Spleen and Stomach fail to process food and liquids, body fluids are unevenly distributed, and excessive sweat arises from the hands and feet. 


Different individuals may experience different symptoms, including:

- Clammy or wet palms

- Clammy or wet soles
