Body Odor Questions
After reading about these wonderful transformations on paleo, I decided to give it a go. I 've never been a junk food junky and had a fairly decent diet. Didn't need to lose wight, but the gut healing was appealing as I bloat easily. Gave up... (more)
So for a long time I had a body odor problem that I couldn't seem to mask with deodorant. Most people would have unpleasant body odor a few hours or a half day after a shower if not for deodorant, but most of them wear deodorant, so most people... (more)
I've been giving a lot of thought to not using anti-perspirants, but I have hyperhydrosis that affects my hands, feet and armpits. The hands and feet are manageable, but my concern is that if I use more "natural" methods for my underarms, I would... (more)
wondering if anyone else has noticed this. I do not use soap or shampoo. I have no scent when not working out, and I think a very healthy manly scent when I sweat heavily, which is still mild. Nothing remotely to compare to my previous workout... (more)
Cotton in summer in a hot humid climate is an absolute nightmare especially for exercise, just gets wet heavy and clammy. I don't wear any cotton at all in summer, it's a recipe for failure. As for the odour problem, I myself find that some of the... (more)
I understand caveman didn't use soap, but is it possible that he did more than just rinse? Using mud for cleaning purposes is one thing that comes to mind. I see animals do it, while others lick themselves. I'd be interested to know more about the... (more)
I bought a pair of KSO's in early April. I like how comfortable they are: I had some doubt before I purchased them. What does everyone here think of them? Has anyone seen any benefits by wearing them? Is there anything that you do not like about... (more)
I was watching Regency House this weekend - you remember, when PBS was doing all those recreation shows, having people live as if it was the victorian era, or pioneer era, or whatever? This one was regency era, the time of Jane Austin, Pride... (more)
Probably the biggest downside to going paleo: the stank. I avoid using generic soaps and deodorants, instead opting for organic soap and no deodorant. I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but Grok could not have mated with Mrs. Grok if he... (more)
Hey guys. Have any of you experienced reductions in body odor and sweating getting on the paleo diet? I was going to try the vegan diet when i came across this. A few years ago i suddenly became more sweaty and I have tried all of my doctor's... (more)
Allright so this a weird thing. About two weeks ago I noticed a pungent odor and blamed it on an extended stay at the inlaws. A week later... it's still here. I noticed today that while eating a piece of pork I smelled a similar smell. Problem... (more)
I'm asking this on behalf of my friend, whose 8 year old daughter has a body odor problem. It's primarily her feet that stink all the time, but she will also sometimes have a funk all over. She's only 8, so I'm thinking that once she hits puberty... (more)
My wife was watching one of those doctor shows and they had a woman on who sweats profusely all of the time. She wears tank tops so she doesn't get stains on her clothes. They did some Botox injections to stop some of the glands from producing... (more)
Can anyone hack my stank? For the last 3-4 days I have had the WORST body odor to the point of using Rx strength deoderent/anti-persperant & shower 2x daily. I'm not sweating excessively, just stink! Yuck, I feel bad for my coworkers. ... (more)
Hey folks. I've been using this deodorant crystal for a couple of weeks now. For the first 2 weeks, it worked wonderfully. I'd wet the crystal slightly, apply it liberally to my arm pits and some of the surrounding skin, and I wouldn't have any BO... (more)
Over the course of the past 5 weeks I have increased my fat and protein intake. However, I have also noticed during this time period that my feet have started giving off an unpleasant odor. I bathe reguarly, and have never had much of a problem... (more)
Are you wearing barefoot shoes? Those make my feet stink to high heaven. I have started keeping them in a plastic shoe box with baking soda...
