Any ways to help stop a guy sweating so much?
A guy I know asked me recently if I knew any ways to stop him from sweating quite so much. Unfortunately I didn't really, so I thought maybe someone here would be able to help? He's not an overweight guy, though he is pretty large in terms of height and muscle mass, and he obviously uses anti-perspirant deodorant although most don't work for him - he's has to order them especially from England to Germany now, and it does help a bit but not too much.
Hmm… I've heard adopting a more vegetarian diet helps reduce sweating. You can still eat meat, but limiting the amount you eat can help.
Thanks for commenting! I follow a mainly vegetarian diet and have been trying to convince him to do so for health reasons as well, now I have another argument to help convince him!
Well, I've been a vegetarian all my life (but def. struggle in heat) I don't use antiperspirant but do use the mineral crystal against any possible odor. Best hint (I am a teacher also) wear clothes that don't darken under the arms!
Eating less meat would not reduce the amount of sweat, however it may improve the smell. Has he tried to use baby powder or baking soda? In addition to the antiperspirant? Oh, and I heard that reducing amount of caffeine in diet also helps!
Taking showers also helps with the smell, I am sure he already does that! :-)
Sweating is a normal mechanism of helping the body to cool off. Since I do not know the environment in which the person you are talking about, works in, or what his situation is (high stress, hot weather, etc), I cannot give you good advice. I would like for you to refer this problem to one of the programs on television, like " the Doctors," or others. They will sometimes give answers to questions like this, as part of their regular programming. I would like to see a dermatologist, a guest doctor, on the show, The Doctors, respond to your question.
Don't stop. It is good to perspire as it is one of the method to getting rid of our body toxic. If one does not perspire then it means the pores are blocked and the body cannot get rid of the toxic waste which can lead to other problems.
Just need to take more showering to clear the smell of odors ...
I don't think there would be a deodorant deficiency (why England or Germany?)
Let me follow, however. Hot baths with sea salts and aromatic oils or herb sachets - you deodorize your body and your body may learn to manage external temperature a bit better.
Careful, should you have a heart problem, but this doesn't look the case here.
Remember to rinse with tepid water.
Do you go to Finland?
He should go see a doctor to rule out anything serious like diabetes. Before being diagnosed I also sweat a lot and I am also not overweight.
Thanks for answering! I have tried to tell him to go to the doctors but he insists it's not because he's ill... I guess he's just stubborn!
Let him know that is why it is called the silent killer. I did not think I was sick either...
Maybe he's tried it, but he should avoid wearing long sleeved shirts and buttoning up the collar. Short sleeved, open collar cotton shirts have certainly helped me.
Sometimes it's genetic, and for some people is quite normal, he can go to a doctor to rule out any health issues, but if it's genetic, tough luck.
