40 percent of American women are alleged to have facial hair – from peach fuzz upwards.
Curry powder (due to cardamom, coriander, and cumin) stimulates the growth of body and face hair, according to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) – and has the opposite effect on head hair.
He recommended soaking sage in olive oil to remove excess hair from the body and face.
This ain’t gonna happen overnight. :(
Both sage and olive oil contain phytoestrogens.
Adano advised using sage in olive oil to strengthen muscles – applied externally and taken internally.
Ginseng stimulates the growth of facial hair.
(Two women I know stopped using ginseng for that reason.)
Filberts also contain trace amounts of the anti-aging agent paclitaxel, Nature’s version of the chemo drug Taxol.
Yew trees contain a lot more paclitaxel.
(Yew trees are the oldest trees on our planet, not bristlecone pines, even the ones along the Methuselah Trail in the White Mountains of California.)
The judicious and timely use of foods and herbs containing phytoestrogens or estrogen stimulators can oppose androgenic hair growth.
Soybeans and soybean products (e.g., tofu, tempeh, and natto) are estrogenic.
Most beans have estrogenic qualities to a greater or lesser degree.
Wheat is estrogenic.
Excess wheat consumption can grow breasts on a man.
Olives and olive oil are estrogenic.
Onions – white, red, yellow, or green – are estrogenic.
Herbs containing phytoestrogens include angelica, anise, fennel, fenugreek, flaxseed, parsley, red clover, and sage.
Stinging nettle – due to its boron – can double estrogen production in a woman’s body.
Okra is rich in boron.
Prune kernels stimulate female hormones.
Adano advised their judicious and timely use to keep a woman from getting “dried up like a prune.”
This includes vaginal fluids as well as wrinkles.
Mango is good for female hormones.
Meat – other than organic – is rich in estrogen analogues. It’s best to avoid them. :(
U.S. cattle are routinely implanted with synthetic estrogens like Schering-Plough’s Zeronel, implicated in breast cancer.
Even cement dust is added to cattle feed to promote growth.
Some authorities advise women to “celebrate” their facial hair “instead of trying to get rid of it.”
Testosterone is tied to libido.
Most women experience a 50 percent drop in testosterone between their twenties and their fifties.
A woman’s bulbourethral muscles – bulbocavernosus muscles – atrophy without testosterone.
The “BC muscle” helps a woman clamp down on a man’s penis and is almost solely responsible for female ejaculation.
Guys call it “snapping turtle (censored).”
Estrogen can cause weight gain.
Many “experts” say the opposite, yet estrogen is a medical weight-gain therapy for girls with anorexia.
Will the real anabolic steroid please stand up? It’s estrogen, not testosterone.
A bodybuilder trains his body fat to enter his muscles.
Muscle mass has more to do with intracellular and extracellular fat – and CO2 GAS – than protein.
Consider the “lard pig” (Mangalica pig) raised in Spain for its ability to store fat in its muscle tissue.
Mangalica translates as “hog with a lot of lard.”
Estrogen is one reason the ovum is many times larger than the sperm.
Go ask Mr. and Ms. Halibut.
A male halibut rarely reaches 40 pounds.
A female halibut can reach 400 pounds.
