How to Stop Sweating Naturally

If you suffer from excessive sweating, or want more natural ways to stop being embarrassed by your sweat and body odour problems, read on!

There are many chemical and even surgical products on offer to stop sweating. However, there are things you can do that are cheaper, easier for your body to handle and provide natural ways to stop sweating.

What goes in must come out

Whatever you eat has a big impact on what waste products are emitted from your body. Sweat is one mechanism the body uses to release toxins and other waste products - far too minute for the eye to see. What you eat will therefore have a big impact on how much you sweat.

If you eat more chemically produced products, your body has to convert these chemicals into either usable products or emit them from the body as toxins through the skin.

Foods to avoid

Processed foods, particularly those which contain high-fructose corn syrup are more damaging to the body than more natural ones. High fructose corn syrup is cheap so many food processors love to use it in their food. It contributes to many problems with people's health because it is not easily broken down by the body. Often people who eat many foods containing this product will be overweight, which also will contribute to sweating problems.

Fast foods and cheap but fattening take away items with deep fried items or much grease are more difficult for the body to digest and therefore will also contribute to how much your body needs to sweat. Cut down on the fast foods and see how your body will naturally stop sweating so much.

Foods to eat

Fruit is one of the best things you can eat. Try for four or five serves of fruit a day. Fruit naturally helps the digestive system expel toxins and bad chemicals in other foods by providing good ‘sugars' or natural fructose (rather than the processed products listed above) and by providing the fibre needed to expel waste products in other natural ways.

Fruit also works to help make you feel full, so if you have a weight problem as well, this will help you to reduce the amount of other food you need to eat.

B Vitamin savvy

Complex B Vitamins are essential for helping our body deal with waste products produced by helping to break them down and help nutrients be absorbed more effectively.

B Vitamins also help your body to undertake these natural processes, without having to work too hard. Whenever your body has to work harder at what should happen naturally, for example to deal with products like high-fructose corn syrup, the body interprets this as being under stress. When you stress, you naturally sweat more.

Complex B Vitamins are found in foods like Whole grains (cereals, breads), Proteins (fish, eggs, meats, nuts), Fruits (bananas, kiwi, watermelon, oranges) and Vegetables (avocado, peas, sweet potato, carrots).

Eat more of these natural foods to help increase the complex B Vitamins in your body and most importantly to help stop sweating.

Stop the Stress – Stop the Sweat

Stopping stress will also help you to stop sweating so much. The best ways to stop stress-related sweating are to relax. Every person is different and you will find different ways to relax.

Positive affirmations and thinking are also important ‘tricks'. Take the steps to stop the stress and you will naturally reduce the amount you sweat.

Exercise to Stop Sweating?

Wait a minute - I hear you thinking - I already sweat too much. Won't I sweat more if I exercise? Obviously at the time of exercise, sweat is naturally produced but this happens to everyone. However, regular exercise may really help you to stop sweating so much all the rest of the day. How does this work?

Exercise naturally accomplishes many things for our bodies. It helps to reduce stress (by giving you another outlet for any tensions), it produces a ‘natural high' by releasing hormones in bodies that make us feel good, it helps stimulate the digestive system and helps the body work better and more efficiently to expel toxins from the body. It will also help you to lose weight. So if you really want to stop sweating - get out there and start exercising.

Stop Sweating Naturally

All of these things can contribute to stopping sweating naturally. Good food, exercise and reducing stress in our lives will help you feel better and will definitely help to stop the sweat problem naturally and without use of chemicals or even surgery.

i am in good shape, eat well, exercise a ton; play softball, basketball, volleyball, and run track. i sweat constantly even when i am shivering. i have huge sweat marks under my underarms, they make it all the way to the bottom of my rib cage. this happens within ten minutes of school. i am relaxed and still sweat, which makes me stress. it is really embarrassing and i always get made fun of. antipersperants don't work and i don't want surgery.. but thanks

Maxim. It changed my life. not the magazine. It is an antiperspirant that you put on at night time and sleep in it. completely stops underarm sweating after using it enough times. It will change your life!
