Did you know that sweat is basically odorless?
The key to understanding odor...
To "cure" body odor, foot odor or shoe odor, it is necessary to understand where these odors come from and then eliminate the SOURCE of these odors. odor is a byproduct of the metabolic process of bacteria (mainly corynebacteria and micrococci) which break down organic substances found on your skin, in your sweat or on your clothing. These foot and underarm odor causing bacteria flourish in moist warm areas. This (and a food source) is why the most prevalent body odors are found in the arm pits and feet. These are perfect warm, moist breading grounds for bacteria- any bacteria. Moisture can collect in these areas and can not readily evaporate
|It is important to realize that bacteria cover every surface of your skin and are inside your pores and sweat glands. Bacteria are in the air and on everything you touch. Bacteria are not necessarily bad. There is a natural balance of "good" and "bad" bacteria on your skin, in your airways and even in your intestines. Due to the natural balance of these bacteria, the "bad" bacteria are not present in sufficient numbers to cause disease (e.g. pneumonia, certain ulcers, etc) or in this case, persistent excessive odor. "Bad" bacteria for our discussion includes corynebacteria and micrococci, the bacteria that cause unpleasant body odors and the odors emanating from your shoes. Both of these bacteria are present on the surfaces of everyone's body at all times. The difference is that they are in much higher concentrations on someone who has odor problems. |
Luckily, this is NOT a permanent problem. In fact, your body will naturally be odor-free just as it naturally is disease-free. Sometimes, in people suffering from odor problems, a little push is all that is necessary. The regimen I developed provides a large push. The regimen restores the "natural" balance of bacteria by destroying the excess unwanted, odor causing bacteria on the skin thereby allowing the "good" bacteria to re-establish themselves as the predominant bacteria- this is the natural balance. The natural bacterial balance is an odor-free balance- the balance that most people enjoy without having to put on deodorant every day and showering three times a day!
Why herbal remedies don't work...
With the exception of the digestive system, the inside of your body is a sterile environment (there are no bacteria). Bacteria inside the body will cause sickness and possible death. Body odor causing bacteria are located only on the surface of the skin and in your pores. Therefore, treating body odor by ingesting any herbal or non-herbal product is not effective except possibly in people whose odor may be a symptom of a seperate medical illness. Almost all odor originates outside of your body (certain foods will cause odor when its chemicals are secreted through pores or sweat glands, for example garlic). Sweat is basically odorless when it leaves your body and therefore, the only way to treat odor is to treat the odor-causing bacteria on the skin.
Consumer product companies sell antiperspirants and deodorants which help reduce moisture or mask the odor with a perfume or fragrance. Most of us know these products don't control the odor for very long, if at all. I've suffered the embarrassment of someone asking me what cologne I was wearing, when the "fragrance" was that of my heavy underarm deodorant. I am here to tell you that all this stuff is not necessary and is a waste of your valuable money. Unfortunately, there is no reason for consumer product companies to sell an inexpensive product to actually "cure" your odor. They make money by selling you their products month after month.
You can eliminate these odors using supplies which you can purchase at the grocery store, corner store, or local drug store chain for less than $2!

I just keep shaking my head and muttering under my breath, "this is just incredible/amazing/unbelievable". I just can't believe that there was such a simple answer to this incredibly emotional issue. I never really thought I would find the answer to the problem, but it appears that I was wrong. If only I had known about this on my wedding day!!..." more testimonials|
