Excessive sweating can be a very distressful and embarrassing problem. To always have clothes wet and stained with perspiration and to have big stains underarms can cause a social disaster and a blow to one’s self esteem. Everybody sweats when one exercises or performs physical work and when the weather is very hot.
Normal sweating is good for the body because through perspiration the body eliminates wastes and impurities and regulates its temperature. But if you happen to sweat without any physical exertion or warm weather then it is a problematical condition which needs to be treated.
Nervous disorders, major illnesses, antibiotics, obesity and alcoholism can trigger excessive sweating in the palms, feet, face and armpits. Sometimes the whole body sweats profusely and the sweat has a strong unpleasant odor which ruins social interactions.
How To Treat Excessive Sweating Naturally
Wheatgrass is a natural remedy very effective in controlling excessive sweating. It is extremely rich in vitamins, proteins and folic acid which nourish the body and ensure good health.
It flushes out all the toxins from the body and reduces the activity of acids in the blood which helps in diverting the excess water to the bowels and kidneys instead of the sweat glands.
This results in sweat reduction and a healthy and fit body. Blend a handful of wheatgrass with some water in a mixer. Strain the juice and drink one glass of it every morning.
Tomato is packed with essential nutrients that provide nourishment and strength to the body and help it to function properly. It is rich in vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant and destroys all the free radicals in the blood and detoxifies it.
The potassium content helps to normalize the activity of the sweat glands and eliminates weakness. Drink fresh tomato juice twice daily. Soon its positive effects will be clearly discernible when you no longer have moist palms and feet.
Dusting cornstarch underarms and on the palms and feet is a very effective way of managing excessive sweating and preventing it. Cornstarch absorbs all the moisture and keeps the area dry. It effectively blocks the sweat glands and diverts the excess sweat to the kidneys and the bowels.
Wash and dry the areas thoroughly before applying the cornstarch. Mix some sandalwood powder with the cornstarch to keep yourself cool and sweet smelling and dust all the profusely sweating areas with it. Use this remedy twice daily.
Turnip juice reduces the activity of the sweat glands and prevents them from producing too much sweat. It keeps the body cool and refreshed and provides essential nutrients to it which keep it strong and healthy. Grate one big fresh turnip and squeeze it to extract the juice. Drink one cup of turnip juice once a day regularly.
Lemon juice has natural astringent and cleansing properties and it quells the body odor most effectively. Apply lemon juice underarms and around the groin. Rub it liberally on the palms and the feet. Apply two or three times daily to curb perspiration and its stench.
