Sweating is natural, but rarely do we think about it. We do things impromptu to curb and then fall prey to myths….
Hardworking in gyms, nerve over-stimulation due to stress, or high air temperatures and humidity, whatever the reason is for the extra heat, sweating is body’s natural way of heat regulation. During any of vigorous activities, a person may loose considerable quarts of fluid through perspiration. According to clinical researchers, only one percent of sweat is produced under arms. An astonishing fact most of us are unaware of is that sweat itself is odorless. It is actually the bacteria that live on the skin and breaks down the sweat are what create the odor.
How to control the odor?
Keeping yourself odorless is assumed to be keeping you sweat-less. You might have followed a number of tricks, but couldn’t stop sweating. Don’t worry! There is yet a solution to stop sweating.
Follow these steps to stop sweating and start living.
The most common ways to control the odor, however, have always been deodorants and antiperspirants ever since inventions and discoveries were made in this regard. According to researches, Americans spent around $1.7 billion in 2004 on antiperspirants and deodorants. Other products included sprays, aerosols, pumps, roll-ons, solid sticks, gels, creams, and so on.
Antiperspirants and deodorants are not the same.
Deodorants are merely cosmetic products that reduce body odor. However, antiperspirants are drugs that stop you from sweating. Most of the antiperspirants are available as Over the Counter drugs, but there are yet few that are available only on doctor’s prescription. These have higher levels of aluminum salts that can cause skin irritation.
Aluminum in the antiperspirants does penetrate into skin; it rather works on the surface to control the odor. If the aluminum gets absorbed the antiperspirants wouldn’t work at all. Researches show that only a minimal amount gets its way into the skin, which is even less than the amount of aluminum we consume in food.
Antiperspirants and Breast Cancer
If the biological mechanism goes awry, it can either lead to hyperhidrosis, a condition of excessive sweating, or anhidrosis – a condition of little or no sweating. Both the conditions are potentially life threatening though. A more common myth about the antiperspirants is that they can cause breast caner. However, leading cancer research organizations have stated that there is no reasonable mechanism by which antiperspirants can cause breast cancer. The related myths also suggest that antiperspirants keep a person from “sweat out toxins” resulting in cancer causing toxins. But, ACS denies saying sweat is not a significant route for removing toxins from the body.
So, don’t be worried, just keep yourself aware and enjoy being odorless!
In “Stop Sweating and Start Living”
Ramsey fully describes his practical and unique treatment approach that permanently gets rid of a person’s excessive underarm sweat problem – naturally and without side effects.
Ramsey’s discovery comes on the heels of new research that indicates nearly 8 million Americans – almost 3 percent of the U.S. population – routinely suffer from excessive sweating, a figure higher than previously believed.
‘This technique has proven to be highly practical, safe and effective and it’s worked quickly for me and for hundreds of other people who have read my book and tried it,’ Ramsey said.
