sweating

Do you feel embarrassed because of your dripping wet underarms and stained shirts? Do you feel ashamed because you find people, after shaking hands with you at a business meeting, surreptitiously dry them? As summer comes around, we start dreading the onset of sweating, especially if one is given to excessive sweating. Excessive sweating is a particularly unpleasant condition. It can not only be embarrassing, and awkward, but it can also lead to unpleasant body odor.

This condition also known as hyperhidrosis, mainly affect the palms of the hand and the soles of your feet. It happens when a part of our nervous system known as the Sympathetic Nervous System gets hyperactive and produces more sweat than is necessary. However, sometimes it can affect other parts of your body, such as armpits, scalp and face. However, don’t give up hope, there are quite a few natural ways by which you can rid yourself of excessive sweating.

Let’s look at 8 best ways to naturally stop excessive sweating:

  1. Drink lots of water.

    This is the simplest way to cut down on you sweating. It is a good practice anyway. Water helps to flush out excessive minerals, and toxins and waste materials. It is vital to your body. Water helps your body by cooling it down to reduce sweat production. While you are at it, drink cold water preferably.

  2. Carry cold water when on the road.

    If you are out on the road a lot, this will help by keeping your water intake up.

  3. Avoid stress

    Stress and nervousness are sweat triggers. Do whatever you can to keep them down.

  4. Take cold showers

    Cold showers may feel unpleasant but they are a very good way to keep dry and sweat-free. On the hottest of days take several cold showers. You will immediately feel fresher.

  5. Cut down on the coffee.

    Coffee contains caffeine as we all know, and caffeine can cause anxiety. That’s another sweat trigger. Avoid coffee. Instead try juices, lemonade or iced drinks. Iced-tea will refresh you and keep your body cool.

  6. Choose the right soap and deodorants.

    It is a little known fact that that the wrong kinds of soaps and deodorants, instead of keeping you clean and odor-free, can have an adverse effect. They can cause a bacteria build up on your body, and be responsible for body odor. If avoiding them is not an option, at least take some care to choose a soap and a deodorant that suits you.

  7. Eat the “right” foods – avoid the “wrong” ones

    What are the “wrong” foods and “right” foods?

    Wrong foods are chemically processed foods and also sugary and spicy foods. Chemically processed foods contain substances that are toxic in nature, and the body will sweat more to flush these out. It is the same with excessively sugary food. Spicy food may taste delicious, but spices induce sweating too.

    Right foods are those that contain the right nutrients and little or no toxicity. Most natural foods fall in this category. If your body does not have adequate complex B Vitamins, it cannot absorb nutrients properly and cannot break down the toxins and waste materials efficiently.

    • Whole grains are a good source of B Vitamin and fiber
    • Fresh fruit are essential. They too contain many important nutrients.
    • Vegetables are also a great source of Vitamin B.
  8. Wear the right clothes

    • Avoid synthetics. Avoid nylon and polyester fabrics, wear natural fiber materials such as cotton, which will let the skin breathe.
    • Don’t wear tight clothes. Tight clothes will not allow air to form a layer between the clothes and the skin that your body needs to stay comfortable
    • Wear an undershirt. An undershirt made of natural fiber will let your skin breathe, and also absorb the sweat.
    • Carry an extra shirt. It is a good idea to carry an extra shirt and change into it in the middle of the day. It keeps you looking fresh.

If, however, you feel that your sweating problem is very excessive, you should consult a physician, by all means. However if nothing is working, there is no harm in trying these natural remedies. One or more of them will definitely work for you.
