Can Ayurveda cure Gynecomastia?

To answer this question, let’s see something that I found on Internet regarding gynecomastia and Ayurveda.

  • “Management of gynecomastia is generally not required as it may regress on its own.” – Dabur Arogya
  • “Powder mix of rock salt, gooseberry, ginger, black pepper can cure gynecomastia.”- Ayurpedia
  • “Hakkam churna, Tribulus power help cure gynecomastia.”- Alwaysayurveda


These are one of the few common answers that pop out and confuse people who are suffering from gynecomastia!


NO, Ayurveda cannot cure gynecomastia. The only treatment is surgery that involves liposuction to take out the fat in chest region and removal of breast gland.  The confusion arises when gynecomastia is confused with generalized body fat.

Alternate medicines can offer good treatment in cold, cough, fever or other ailments buts there are no ayurvedic medicines available to melt the fat and breast gland.


What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia means female like breasts in males. Due to hormonal imbalance, sometimes around puberty male start developing female like breast gland. This is not related to generalized weight gain. Therefore gynecomastia cannot be cured by exercise, gymming or any other drugs.

 Step 4: Go for it!

Two things are done to sculpt the chest
