I used to sweat all the time. It didn’t matter what I was doing. Whether I was hot or cold, exercising or just sitting still. My face would get flushed and my hair would be a soaking wet mop. I didn’t know how to stop sweating. It was so bad I used to have to change clothes in the middle of the day.
It was extremely embarrassing! Finally I had enough and I decided to find out exactly what was causing me to sweat like a pig and how to cure it. I learned that there are a few incredibly easy things a person can do to stop sweating excessively and start living a normal life.
First I learned that diet plays a major role in how much our bodies sweat. Avoiding spicy foods, which make the body feel “hotter” than it really is, can help a lot. I also found that excessive sweating can be caused by an overactive thyroid. The thyroid produces hormones by taking up iodine and so reducing iodine in the diet can sometimes help.
So I tried avoiding iodine-rich foods, like broccoli and liver and iodized salt. That seemed to help quite a bit.
My condition had improved somewhat, but I still was a sweaty mess most of the time. I finally bit the bullet and went to the doctor. He prescribed me a medication called Robinul. I was skeptical immediately, since I don’t like taking pills, but I gave it a shot. It did work pretty well. After a few days I was drier than I had been in a while, but the side effects were terrible. I had constant headaches and was dizzy all the time and it seemed I had traded one lousy condition for the other. Your mileage may vary with medications like this however, I decided they weren’t for me.
That’s when I decided to find out how to stop sweating naturally. I came across a lot of natural methods which people reported great success with. One method that worked really well for me was drinking sage tea. Sage tea works because it has a high amount of tannins. Tannins are natural compounds which act as a natural astringent in the body. Basically they dry you out! I drank a concoction of sage tea every day and my sweating problem was probably reduced 75%. My quality of life improved dramatically.
If you had the same problem as me, where you don’t know how to stop sweating, the one thing I can say is, don’t give up. I searched and searched until I found a combination of natural techniques that cured me completely. You don’t have to live with this miserable condition the rest of your life.
