Are you inevitably sweating – whether it’s your underarms, palms, or feet? Do you want to stop sweating and start living? Having a sweating problem makes life difficult and several situations lead to embarrassment.
An instance is if you have to do a report in front of your bosses. Yes, it’s the report that they have to focus on, but if you are excessively sweating, it is unavoidable that they may see your uniform already full of watery sweat. Another example is when you have been eyeing this beautiful lady at a friend’s party. Your friend introduces you to her. After shaking hands with you, she gives you a weird look. How embarrassing is that? Another thing is that you have to avoid wearing certain fabrics and color of clothing. What’s worse is that it can lower down your self-esteem.
Before going to the how to’s, it is important to know that thousands of people around the world are suffering like you. Sweating is normal. It’s the body’s way to balance its temperature. When sweat is already present in the body, the temperature of the body goes down. However, when the sweat is already in excess, it is a different story.
Excessive sweating refers to Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis varies from person to person. It can be genetic. If your grandmother used to suffer from excess sweat, then you are at risk. Some people get it due to some medical conditions. Others get it from a traumatic experience or after being in an accident. Others get it merely during highly stressful situations.
Studies show that only 40% of the people who are suffering from hyperhidrosis seek help. The remaining 60% think that it’s normal, while some are already used to it, so they do nothing. I’m sure that you want to join the 40%, so stop sweating and start living now!
There are a lot of ways to stop hyperhidrosis. The common one especially for excess underarm sweating is the use of anti-perspirants. Usually, anti-perspirants that really work are the strong and very expensive ones. However, they are not effective for all. Again it varies from person to person.
There are also medicines that are taken orally that doesn’t only cure underarm sweating, but also palm and sole sweating. They are called anticholinergics. They are very effective, but have a lot of bad side effects.
In order to get away from side effects that a lot of medicines or general therapies do, experts suggest that people should deal with it the natural way. Not only that it’s the cheapest, but it’s also the mildest and safest. One of the natural ways is to use baking soda. Apply it to your sweating body and leave it for 20-25 minutes before rinsing it off.
