Remedies for Body Odor

January 10, 2015

Sweaty Body OdorI have done everything possible to get rid of my body odor, but nothing seems to work. I bathe twice a day, brush my teeth twice, sometimes 3x, I use dental floss frequently, I use lemon before bathing and good deodorants, but people keep frowning and cover their nose when I come around. I need urgent help.

Get some chlorophyll from the health food store & take as directed. The problem has to be solved from the inside. You need to detox.

Another hint is if your underarm odor is like pennies, you are lacking in copper. I know it sounds silly, but our bodies are made up of trace minerals. A deficiency of any of them makes out bodies react abnormally. I hope that helps. The others suggestions are spot on, too.

I am in Thailand, have been using coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oils instead of deodorant. I sweat a lot here in this climate. Funny enough I sweat more with cotton t-shirts or tank tops than cotton dress shirts. I do yoga, play badminton, and keep active. Even after a shower my towels have that sweet vinegary smell. I use mostly organic shampoos, conditioners, and body wash. When I use deodorant spray, I don't have any BO and sweat much much less. But I don't like using deodorant spray.

I eat probiotic yogurt (home made), drink lots of water, eat vegetables, little meat, and very healthy.

I'm going to try anti-bacterial soap to see if that stops it. But I'm wondering if there is something I can do to stop the sweet smell. No one has complained about it, but I can smell it in yoga and badminton. Even my laundry smells sweet. I suppose it's better than a bad smell. But again when using spray deodorant (very little of it), it's gone and I sweat much much less.

Nobody is going to complain to you about it. That would be rude. They'll just talk to each other about it behind your back.
The smell is stronger than you think it is. We all get used to our own body odors but they smell offensive to others.

I suggest you just use the deodorant. There is really no substitute for it. Especially since you are very active.
You are generally a healthy, organic type of person. But really, in this day and age, there is no way to avoid all chemicals. You will always come in contact with some. You can't make yourself live forever no matter how much you try, and there are some trade-offs we all make for the privilege of living in a society with other people.

I've been studying nutrition for a great many years and body odor is usually caused by what we eat.

Stay away from all pork products. Start taking 1000 mg.
