These 5 Things Could Be Causing You To Have Nasty Body Odor

black-man-smelling-pits

Let us set the scene that is every person’s nightmare. You are on a date in a romantic restaurant and you’re dressed to impress. As waiters walk by with picturesque food, you notice a lingering odor in your vicinity. It has the familiar notes of body odor. Wait…It is body odor and the source is your armpits. How can this be? You showered and put on deodorant before going out! Let us explain.

 

Certain things, perhaps unbeknownst to you, can make you stink. Remember that sweat is odorless and that the smell comes from whatever is inside your body. Body odor can be attributed to diet, poor hygiene, the material of your clothes, or even deodorant. Here are some things that make you smell.

 

Red Meat:

A lot of people love to eat red meat. Some can’t imagine life without a grilled fillet mignon, but red meat can actually make you hungrier and cause body odor. Red meat is usually difficult for the body to digest, which means that residue gets left in the GI tract. When this residue is released through sweat, it combines with bacteria and worsens your body odor.

 

You Don’t Wear Cotton:

A lot of people like to wear clothes that are made of spandex, leather, or other non-cotton materials. These materials make it difficult for your pores to breathe, trapping the sweat against the skin. Let your skin breath a little with some soft cotton clothes and you’ll smell better.

 

Fried Foods:

A lot of Americans have a weakness for fried foods. We live in a fast food nation. Eating these foods can wreak havoc on your digestive system and can cause intense body odor. The oils in the food become rancid very quick and they escape the body via body odor.

 

Foods With Sulfur:

Garlic, onions, and curry powder often add a ton of flavor with minimal calories. These foods have many antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, but they can make you smell bad. When you sweat, the sulfur sweats out of your pores, and it isn’t a pleasant aroma. You can eat these ingredients, but don’t go overboard with them.

 

You Are Stressed Out:

If you are stressed out you can emit some strong odors. Stress hormones contain lipids and proteins that bacteria, which naturally exist on your skin, love to feed on. The bacteria then produce a smelly waste and you end up not smelling that great.

    Q: What foods in the "SAD" causes body odor ( smelly underarms)? What causes sweat to smell?

    A:

    What causes body odor as far as SAD (Standard American Diet) is concerned is MEAT (dead, slaughtered animal flesh), DAIRY PRODUCTS (liquefied cow snot/pus), REFINED GRAINS (Elmer's glue/paste), REFINED STARCHES (stiffening agent), and ACIDIC beverages.

    Underarm sweat stinks because our internal odors ooze out through our pores. The outer (condition) always reflects the inner (condition).

    Dead animals will naturally rot and decay and you know how a dead dog, cat, fish or rat smells ...right? Well, there you go!

    Q: I am 18 years old and was diagnosed with genital herpes in March 2007. Four months before that till present I have been suffering with a vaginal odor problem. No matter how I shower and clean, after a half an hour my vagina would have this fishy like odor that you could smell through my clothes. When I am on my menstrual the smell is even stronger and embarrassing because no matter what I do I cannot hide the odor. Before my first breakout with herpes I went to the doctor about the smell and my pap smear didn't show any signs of an infection to explain the smell. After being diagnosed with genital herpes I went back to the doctors to find out what I could do about the embarrassing odor. I was even tested for bacterial vagenosis but did not have it. The doctor said the smell could just be symptoms of a break out coming on. They gave me acyclovir pills and sent me home. Not to mention the pills did not help one bit with my breakouts or odor. I don’t know what to do anymore.... I’m tired of locking myself in the house because of my odor and my painful breakouts. Please help....

    A:

    BELOVED, HAVE YOU READ OUR "GENITAL HERPES" ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD. I BELIEVE IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES. DRUGS WILL NEVER HELP YOU! NEVER! THE BODY CANNOT ASSIMILATE THEM. I'D RECOMMEND THAT YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. PERFORM THESE TWO FOR STARTERS. BASICALLY, YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR A FULL LIFE CHANGE.

    Q: Question: While Detoxing or Cleansing With One of the Other Kits, Is It Possible That the Herbs Will or Can Exude From the Pores of My Skin and Emit a Bad or Foul Odor or Smell?

    A:

    Answer: It is very, very rare but could happen. If it does happen, make sure you bathe daily (in hot water and 1 box of sea salt or 8-12 ounces of sea salt) and use oil on your skin rather than lotion. While bathing, make sure to scrub your skin with a loofah brush. Drink plenty of fruits and/vegetable juice as well. Steaming (going to a steam room) will also help this condition. The condition will not last long; usually just during the duration of the cleanse.

    Q: I am a supporter of yours and trust your advice totally. I have your article on Body Odor, and I am in the process of following it tooth and nail. When in public I hear comments, and this is very painful. However, I fear that I may have a condition called Trimethylaminuria.

    A:

    Yes, the information in the Body Odor article applies to your situation. The key thing is to first detox with the, Full Body Detox, followed by 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. Drink vegetable juice daily, and perform the sea salt soak as much as possible. Read the article "Sea Salt Soak." A raw foods diet is going to be best for you, at least until you get your desired results. Take matters one day at time and think positive. Utilize "mental healing" (order and read my "Mental Science Manual") as all healing and solutions begin in the mind.

    Q: I have been taking your anti-tumor formula for about 3 weeks now and i have notice that I have a brownish discharge and it has a fishy odor to it. Do you think that this is a sign that the tumors are dissolving?

    A:

    This is most definitely a sign that healing is taking place. Remember, your body will utilize any and all channels for cleansing (elimination) which includes the female orifice. Tumors will be eliminated via this channel. It's natural for this to happen.

    Q: How often do you use the FULL BODY DETOX? Why no meat and cooked foods.

    A:

    It's ideal to detox every seasonal change (every 3 months). Meat and cooked foods pollute the body so we advise not to eat them while UN-polluting the body.

    Q: I read the food chart for the FULL BODY DETOX. Is it ok to eat the cream of wheat while detoxing? I'm confused because on the food chart it mentioned alot of different foods, but it tell you the best thing to do is a all raw food diet such as salads and fruit, smoothies... I also plan to do the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN right after the FULL BODY DETOX and that requires a all raw food diet as well. So that means 2 months of strictly raw foods right? :( Its tough but I am determined too get rid of this hsv1 & hsv 2

    A:

    I suggest you read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†as it will help you to understand what to eat and what not to eat on the FULL BODY DETOX. Yes, all raw foods for 2 months (to the best of your ability, Beloved). YOU CAN DO IT, BELOVED! Did you read our "GENITAL HERPES" article?

    Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and I have a question. I work a full time job (office work) and a part time job (cleaning). I'm worried if I will be able to work while doing the detox, I also workout (weight lifting) and with eating raw foods and no cooked food, I'm wondering if I will make it the 3 weeks doing this. I want to detox my body but I'm wondering if I can eat anything else (fish, chicken, baked of course). Can you give me some suggestions on what I can do or do you think I can do my normal things and still be on the detox?

    A:

    The human mind can make or break you based upon its conditioning! Just take the cleanse one day at a time and FIND OUT for yourself what the reactions will be. You're all in the future worrying! One day at a time! One day at a time! Take things one day at a time. Read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†because you're asking about cooked foods and prohibited foods (animal flesh) which the kit clearly states should be avoided for 3-weeks. Always THINK positive in life about everything. Your thoughts create your reality!

    Q: I've had Crohn's since 1989. Months later, I developed a vaginal fistula. Since then, I've had a partial colectomy of the left colon, hemicolectomy of the right colon, and I had a partial hysterectomy. During the same time they did an ileostomy. I wore it for 3 months. When they took it down, it did not repair the fistula. Some months later, I developed a vaginal cyst, and I began taking Lupron injections to reduce it. It reduced the cyst, but threw my body into menopause. Now I'm having problems with my sight, memory, and other menopausal symptons. Also since 1992, my breath began to smell, and when I use the bathroom, it smells awful. I want to be healed from Crohn's, but my main problem right now is, how I smell. I can't keep existing like this. I'm battling diarrhea, pain, anemia, fatigue, depression, gas, and bloating. I've asked my GI about detoxing, because I believe that's one thing that would make me feel better, but he says no. He doesn't know what to do about my breath, and neither do I anymore. What do you suggest?

    A:

    You should listen to how you feel and DETOX! Detoxing will help you, and your situation. The drugs have made you toxic! Here's what you need to do first and foremost, perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, followed by the 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. While performing these cleanses, drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea daily, and read the "Mental Science Manual" and apply the principles.
