A Body Odor Remedy That actually Works

Updated on August 27, 2009

What are the causes of body odor?

The remedy to body odor is normally not just one thing. If waking up in the middle of the night and finding a puddle of sweat on your mattress is common or having to bring a change of clothes to work. You may be suffering from excess sweating which can be causing i\unbearable body odor.

I have been a long time sufferer ODF excess sweating even though I am a healthy weight, eat right, exercise often and live what I think is a very healthy lifestyle. I had even seen a doctor about my excess sweating and he had no clue why I would sweat so profusely.

A natural body odor remedy that works for some is to eliminate caffeine form the diet and replace it with water. You see caffeine is a diuretic that causes the body to secrete fluids through the skin or more frequent peeing. Drinking six to eight glasses of water will make a dramatic difference not only in your excess sweating but also, your skin should appear more healthy as the body is composed mostly of water.

Body Odor Remedy

Apple cider vinegar is also said to be a remedy for body oder. Dilute a drop of this in water and drink in the morning it is said this will equalize the acids in the body resulting in a less pungent body odor. I do not know if this works or not I tried it and it did not work for me.

Showering daily or twice a day is often times a solution to body odor, you must keep the skin clean of bacteria and sweat. One trick I have learned as an excess sweater is to carry a stick deodorant around with me wherever I go and the second I believe I am perspiring I'll slap it on. I don't care where I am because one I start to sweat I get nervous and just start to smell the whole place up.

Another tip that I have found helpful is two use to colognes or perfumes. One is used directly upon the skin. I then use the second bottle to spray upon my clothes. I use to different kinds as this is will mask my body odor more.

I hope this hub has been of use to remedy your body odor and please contact me if you ever find a cure.
