Raw and Odor

Updated on August 9, 2019

This article approaches a subject that's sensitive to a lot of people: body odor.

Did you know there is a direct correlation between the foods you eat and the odors produced by your body? There's practically no discussion about reducing body odor through your diet while there are millions of dollars spent every year on deodorants and personal care products.

RAW food and body ODOR: these are their stories

Body Odor 101

Sweating is good for you.

An important health function of your armpits is getting rid of toxins. Deodorant products clog your armpits. You need to keep them open and unaffected by deodorant products containing derivatives of heavy metals like aluminum as well as toxic chemicals. Body odor is strongly affected by what your sweat glands emit. Remember, your skin is the body's largest organ.

The path to eliminating body odor requires cleaning up your body on the inside, not to mask the outside result of your present diet. Armpits that have a terrible smell is an indication that your diet needs some adjusting. That's not to ignore the fact that deodorant products contain cancer-causing chemical fragrances which can be absorbed into your bloodstream where they will enter your liver to promote liver disease, cancer, or a variety of disorders.

The conventional doctor will say odor is due to bacteria which live in your armpits. Ridiculous, your whole body is covered with bacteria, They're not only in our armpits. If only bacteria caused the odor one could eliminate it, the body odor, by swiping armpits with rubbing alcohol or iodine tincture. (You can try it and you'll see it won't get rid of the odor.) This is because armpit odor's real cause is the necessary excretion of dreadful toxins which your body needs to get rid of. Use of deodorant products blocks the exit door forcing those toxins to remain in your body!

This video is extremely informative.

Foods that make you stink!

Now let's take a close look at the foods that really cause body odor in the first place. Research is limited on the affect of foods on body odor, but here’s what is known about some kinds of foods.

Foods that putrefy in the digestive tract release all kinds of toxins into the bloodstream through the large intestine. These foods, like red meat are harder to digest and cause stagnation in the body.

Body odor is also caused by manufactured foods - foods low in fiber and containing added sugars, refined white flour, hydrogenated oils and processed ingredients are the big culprits. Elimination of these from a diet and a 100% replacement healthy diet consisting of RAW foods like whole grains, huge amounts of leafy vegetables, lots of sprouts, fresh fruits, supergreens, soy, raw nuts and seeds, vegetable oils and basically RAW foods, a person's body odor will all but disappear in a few weeks.

The reason is plant-based diet of RAW foods is an internal deodorizer. Chlorophyll and other phytonutrients cleanse your insides.

RAW is the answer to ODOR!

Your body gets rid of varied toxins through a variety of metabolic processes including passing fecal matter, urination, exhaling carbon dioxide (& other toxins) through your lungs, as well as eliminating toxins through the skin. The leading creators of these toxins within the body are foods that putrefy in the digestive tract and manufactured processed foods. Meat cooked at high temperatures creates carcinogenic toxins.

Did you know for hundreds of years, physicians would taste urine of patients to make medical diagnoses by taste analysis alone? Astoundingly precise medical diagnoses were made by skilled physicians. This method eventually fell into disfavor because doctors also had a tendency to get ill from tasting patients' urine.

Foods that don't create toxins and actually cleanse the body of toxins (and thus ODOR) are RAW foods.

Some of the best foods to cleanse you from the inside out include cilantro, parsley, celery and species of mint. Sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and other aromatic herbs work well too.

So what foods reduce odor?

Simply stated, locally fresh and organic vegetables and fruits are the foods that reduce odor along with nuts and sprouted seeds. Consuming these natural foods in their natural uncooked raw state takes us to the next level. Foods when eaten raw, superfoods, retain all their enzymes, vitamins and minerals therefore reducing the strain on the digestive system as these foods are more easily digested and absorbed. A truly clean inside is reflected outside by the way of a fresh clean body and fresh clean breath.

Discover which superfood fits best for your personal health goals, body type, and temperament.

Just google raw foods and you will find plenty of information about everything discussed here in RAW & ODOR. One excellent source is Living AND Raw Foods


A final few comments.

There are body odors that aren't eliminated by a diet of healthy fresh raw foods. For example there is a bacteria (vaginal bacteriosis or VB) that creates a foul vaginal odor in women. It can only be eliminated with antibiotics.

There are instances of interaction between your genes and diet resulting in body odor. For example, people with trimethylaminuriathe, an inherited metabolic disorder will develop an odor of fish when they consume fish and some other high-protein foods. The reason for this is the inability to break down a compound (trimethylamine) derived from the food.When this compound builds up in the body it is released in breath, sweat and urine.

And there are healthy raw foods that can produce unwanted odors. For example, foods containing sulfur. Plants of the Brassica genus, including broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Foods of Allium genus, which include garlic and onions, can produce odors also due to their sulfur compounds.

Try this:

Rub crushed raw garlic on the sole of your foot—in less than 30 minutes you will taste it in your mouth.

As the old saying goes GIGO!

A book everyone should read.

Author Mike Adams built a state-of-the-art analytical laboratory using cutting edge scientific instruments he analyses food composition. In Food Forensics, you go on a journey discovering by his meticulous testing of fast foods, groceries, dietary supplements, spices and protein powders the toxic heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, arsenic and mercury found in them.

The book has scientific results of metals composition listed for more than 800 foods, Food Forensics is doing what the FDA refuses to do: Testing of over the counter foods and sharing of the results with the public. How else can people make informed decisions about what to consume or avoid?

Did you know that there is a film that exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us SICK!.

Here is the trailer but you can, AND SHOULD, WATCH the whole documentary on Netflix.

Of course there is a debunking of the film above and here is the rebuttal to the "Vox debunk" which you will see is a joke.

      Very informative article. It is true, perspiration is healthy for all of us. One food item I've noticed to produce unpleasant body odor is rosemary - though rosemary certainly has its health benefits (and I suspect the odor comes from the herb ridding the body of unwanted bacteria and the such).

      A good write up on body odours and its relation to the food we take. Exhaustive and detailed. Interesting reading. Thanks.

      Well not all, just one now and then when I felt like spending the time fixing them from the loss of hubpages getting rid of the floating capsule.

      Still a waste of my time though.

      You are welcome. I assume you meant to say "touchy subject"?

      My thought was to raise awareness...Law and Order is a popular show. I hope once anyone has seen my Raw and Odor HP anytime that they see Law and Order on TV they will be reminded subliminally of the message of Raw and Odor.

      Lupita, that is the truth, I hope others appreciate your comment!

      Listen to what this respected fitness advocate says about her personal investigation of a vegan diet.

      Btw I visited your website,, everyone should - well done!

      Truth well said! The more toxins are in the food we eat, the more our body has to work to expel them! I can honestly say since transitioning into a mostly raw vegan diet, I've been able to get away with using deodorant very sparingly so it lasts twice as long! :D

      Very useful and interesting information, TSAD. I never knew that if you rubbed crushed raw garlic on the sole of your foot that you could taste it in your mouth sometime later.
