Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive sweating mainly in the feet, hands, armpits and groins. It also results in foul body odor. This uncomfortable and embarrassing condition mainly occurs due to overworking of the sweat glands. Obesity can be a major factor because an overweight body heats up faster and produces more sweat.
Natural Cure for Hyperhidrosis
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used both externally and internally to relieve excessive sweating. You can take a mixture of honey and vinegar (2 tsp. each), 3 times daily just before your regular meals.
In addition to that, you can apply apple cider vinegar directly over the areas that sweat a lot, such as armpits. Leave the application for an hour or so. Then, take a bath. Besides reducing the level of sweats, this remedy also helps you to get rid of foul body odor.
You can use cornstarch as a natural deodorant. Apply it to all those areas that sweat excessively. Unlike regular deodorant, it does not just eliminate foul odor but also helps those areas to sweat less.
Another simple yet very effective natural remedy is to rub a sliced potato under your armpits and over other areas that sweat a lot.
Rubbing talcum powder works great, particularly when you are suffering from excessive perspiration under armpits. It also eliminates strong body odor caused by Hyperhidrosis.
Drink Tomato Juice
Drinking a glass of tomato juice once daily can be a very effective natural remedy for Hyperhidrosis. You should notice improved results within just a week. After one week, drink it on alternate days.
After a month, drink it as and when needed. If you follow this remedy properly, it will prevent sweat glands from producing excessive perspiration.
Witch hazel is a natural astringent. The oil extracted from its bark and leaves are used to alleviate the symptoms of Hyperhidrosis. You can soak a clean soft cotton ball in the oil and apply a thin layer over the affected areas. Wash those areas or take a bath after an hour. This remedy works great, particularly in controlling facial sweating.
Burdock controls the amount of perspiration produced by sweat glands by diverting excess sweat to the bowels and lymph nodes. For best results, you can take one teaspoon of burdock tincture 2-3 times daily.
Sage is a natural antiperspirant. Add 1-2 tsp. of sage leaves in one cup of water and boil it over low heat for fifteen minutes. Then, leave it for 24-48 hours at room temperature. Grind the soaked leaves and prepare a paste. Wash the affected areas and dry them properly with a soft towel. Apply a thin layer of the paste on your feet, hands, groin and armpits.
Leave the application for half an hour. Then, rinse it off with cold water. For best results, use this remedy three times daily. Though the above-mentioned natural remedies work great in relieving the symptoms of Hyperhidrosis, you should also focus on treating the actual problem that causes it. For example, if it is happening due to obesity, you should work on to lose some weight.
