Excessive Underarm Sweating Cured Naturally

Excessive underarm sweating can cause a great deal of embarrassment and humiliation for those who are suffering from it. There are lots of natural remedies


can help control the symptoms of excessive sweating. What is more important is to discover the root cause of the excess sweating. A condition called hyperhidrosis is to blame for the excessive sweating in most people. Hyperhidrosis or in layman’s terms “profuse sweating” may be caused by certain diseases such as thyrotoxicosis or fevers, or as the result of using certain drugs. The jury is out on the exact causes and the research continues as researchers continue to look for the underlying causes for this condition. There are loads of successful treatments including anticholinergic drugs, injections of Botulinum toxin, and selective surgical sympathectomy.

The treatment you use will depend on the diagnosis that you obtain for your excessive underarm sweating disorder. Sweat is formed by the body to cool down as the body’s temperature rises while keeping the skin lubricated. It is an essential function of the body, but when it becomes excessive, there may be underlying health issues.


Get Rid of Excessive Underarm Sweating

Flushing during menopausal period, rheumatoid arthritis attacks and anxiety disorders are some of the health causes for excessive sweating condition. If there are no easily understood or apparent reasons for excessive underarm sweating, discuss problem with your doctor in order to rule out any preexisting medical conditions.

Antiperspirants are by and large the first line of attack to mask or block the disorder. There are natural antiperspirants available that can reduce the sweating and embarrassment that comes from the condition. Unfortunately they don’t always in every case.

A healthy diet and losing weight through physical exercise is a good place to start when looking to control excessive underarm sweating. Obesity or being overweight is often a cause of excessive sweating for many people. A good diet will assist the body to function properly and help you to lose weight at the same time. A healthy diet and exercise should be part of an effective way to control excessive underarm sweating.

Drinking large amounts of water to keep the body hydrated and cool will also aid in controlling the condition. The body uses sweat to cool itself and water can help regulate body temperature so that the sweat will be diminished. Drinking


water also helps keep the body free of toxins as they are expelled from the body through sweat.

Do your very best to keep your body clean to keep away from the odor that comes from excessive underarm sweating. Deodorants can help lessen or even block the body odor, but it will not help to stop your underarm from sweating. Take showers frequently to clean and cool off the body throughout the day. It is not the sweat that is the reason of body odor, but it is the combination of the sweat with bacteria from the times we expose ourselves to dirt and the inappropriate diet we put on inside our body that causes the odor.

Be careful with the foods that you choose to eat, in order to keep your underarm sweating under control. Studies shows that very spicy food can cause your body to excrete sweat to try it to cool down to a normal temperature. Watch your diet, watch your weight and keep an eye on which foods have a propensity to cause more excessive sweating for you.

We must accept that everyone sweats, but when the sweating turns out to be excessive, there must be some things that can be done to help eliminate the problem. The problem may be a warning sign of an underlying medical condition or it may be an imbalance in your diet. Because each person responds to natural treatments in a unique way, it follows that you will have to experiment until you find the solution that works for you. Try some on the suggestions that I put out below and see which one works best for you.


B complex Vitamins Vitamin B1

Vitamin B1, also called thiamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for the breakdown of carbohydrates into the simple sugar glucose. Thiamin is also important for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Thiamin is found in whole-grain cereals, bread, red meat, egg yolks, green leafy vegetables, legumes, sweet corn, brown rice, berries, and yeast. Thiamin is absorbed through the intestines.

Deficiency of Vitamin B1

Thiamin deficiency is rare. However, thiamin deficiency often occurs in alcoholics. It occurs in alcoholics because alcohol interferes with the absorption of thiamin through the intestines. Thiamin deficiency can cause beriberi, wernicke’s encephelopathy, and sensitivity of the teeth, cheeks and gums.

Too Much Vitamin B1

Large doses (5,000 to 10,000 mg) can cause headaches, irritability, rapid pulse, and weakness.


Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2, also called riboflavin is a water-soluble vitamin that is important in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is also important in the maintenance of the skin and mucous membranes, the cornea of the eye and for nerve sheaths. Riboflavin is found in whole-grain products, milk, meat, eggs, cheese and peas.

Deficiency of Vitamin B2

A deficiency of riboflavin can cause skin disorders, anemia, light-sensitive eyes, and inflammation of the soft tissue lining around the mouth and nose.

Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3, also called niacin, is needed for the metabolism of food, the maintenance of healthy skin, nerves and the gastrointestinal tract. Niacin is found in protein-rich foods. The most common protein rich foods are: meats, fish, brewer’s yeast, milk, eggs, legumes, potatoes and peanuts. If too much niacin is consumed, itching, headaches, cramps, nausea and skin eruptions may occur. Vitamin B3 is also called nicotinic acid and nicotinamide.


Deficiency of Vitamin B3

A deficiency of niacin causes the disease, pellagra.

Too much Vitamin B3

More than 100mg of vitamin B3 can cause flushing, tingling, itching, headaches, nausea, diarrhea and ulcers.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, is essential in the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Pyridoxine is also used in the production of red blood cells. Pyridoxine can be found in many foods. Some of the foods that contain it are: liver, meat, brown rice, fish, butter, wheat germ, whole grain cereals, and soybeans.

Too much Vitamin B6

More than 500mg can cause irreversible nerve damage. The nerve damage can cause impaired walking, numbness, tingling and poor sense of touch.


Deficiency of Vitamin B6

Deficiency of pyridoxine is rare. However, pyridoxine deficiency often occurs in alcoholics. Deficiency causes skin disorders, disruption of the nervous system, confusion, poor coordination and insomnia. Pyridoxine is also called pyridoxal phosphate and pyridoxamine.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is necessary for processing carbohydrates, proteins and fats and to help make all of the blood cells in our bodies. Vitamin B12 is stored in the liver.

Deficiency of Vitamin B12

Deficiency of vitamin B12 causes mouth irritation, brain damage, and a disease called pernicious anemia. Vitamin B12 can be found in liver, meat, egg yolk, poultry and milk.

Vitamin B9

Vitamin B9, also called folic acid, interacts with vitamin B12 for the synthesis of DNA. Folic acid is also necessary for the breakdown of proteins and the formation of hemoglobin. Folic acid is produced by bacteria in the stomach and 7

intestines. Folic acid is found in many foods, including yeast, liver, green vegetables, and whole grain cereals. Women who are pregnant have an increased need for folic acid. High doses of folic acid can cause convulsions, and disrupt zinc absorption.

Deficiency of Vitamin B9

Deficiency of folic acid causes anemia, poor growth, and irritation of the mouth. Deficiency of folic acid is common in alcoholics, the elderly, and people who are malnourished. Folic Acid is also called folacin and pteroylglutamic acid.

Pantothenic acid

Pantothenic acid is used in the breakdown of carbohydrates, lipids and some amino acids. Pantothenic acid is produced by bacteria in the intestines. Pantothenic acid is found in meats, legumes and whole-grain cereals.

Suggested Natural and Home Management Vinegar

You can use vinegar as a home remedy for excessive sweating in two ways: internally and externally. According to “Stop Sweating”, drinking a vinegar-based formula three times a day on an empty stomach—a half hour before or after each meal—can help reduce sweating in a week’s time. To make the formula, mix two teaspoons of honey with two teaspoons of vinegar (the honey will help make the taste more bearable). To eliminate the odor associated with sweating, you can rub 8

apple cider or white vinegar onto the affected areas, which should help dry out your sweat pores. According to “How to Stop Sweat”, you could also try adding a few drops of vinegar (and/or lime juice) into your bathwater prior to bathing.

Herbal Tea

Herbal teas, particularly those that contain sage, are effective sweat reducers. Sage is high in vitamin B and magnesium, which help DE-stimulate or calm the sweat glands. Try drinking one or two cups of the tea per day; however, make sure not to boil the sage too long, as you could potentially release unwanted toxins into your tea.


Drinking tomato juice or grape juice can help maintain your body’s temperature, and prevent it from overheating. This in turn can help reduce sweating. For best results, try drinking a full glass of either juice each day of the week. Drinking tomato juice regularly can also help reduce your risk of developing cancer and heart disease.


For a fast-acting natural home remedy that stops sweating, try reaching for a glass of buttermilk. Drinking a few glasses of cold buttermilk during a sweating episode can help cool your body down and reduce sweating. 9


While it is unknown how they work, potatoes can potentially help you stop sweating. Try cutting some fresh potatoes in half and rubbing the exposed, moist portion onto the affected areas of your body.

Avoid Synthetics

A good preventive remedy for reducing sweat is to avoid wearing synthetic clothing, such as items that contain polyester and nylon. Wear clothes made of natural fibers, such as cotton, wool or silk, instead.
