Finding the root cause is only half the battle. The next step is addressing it.
It’s a simple recipe. Anything that works and causes the least amount of harm. Every time it starts with diet and lifestyle. Many times this can be enough. Traditional herbal medicine and high quality supplements are often helpful.
