How to Deal with Body Odour

Though there are many deodorants and products to mask and neutralize body odour, not all of them are healthy. Many of them clog your sweat glands, not allowing them to perform one of their main functions - getting rid of bodily toxins. While sweat in itself is odourless, when your body's processes malfunction it's your sweat glands that lend to body odour issues. Here's looking at what you can do to stop body odour from becoming a problem for you, and the solution, as always, begins with the right food.

Dietary habits that may result in body odour:

Red meat intake without adequate attention to vegetables, fruits and cereals 
is a primary cause of body odour. This does not mean that someone who consumes a lot of red meat smells bad. As with everything else, moderation is the answer. Excessive red meat intake in the absence of a well balanced diet can wreak havoc with your body's digestive functions. A well-rounded, balanced meal is crucial to avoid body odour worries through over-the-top red meat consumption.

An overdose of processed foods results in impaired digestion as well. 
Foods lacking fiber and made with refined white flour and sugar, hydrogenated oils and other heavily processed ingredients are also big culprits. While your body is accustomed to taking care of and controlling toxins, too much processed food ends up burdening your digestive system, and could lead to a toxin build up.

If you think that a vegetarian has it better, think again. Though many nutrients found in plants help cleanse your body from the inside, many vegetarians do not eat a healthy diet and consume a lot of processed food. If you're a vegetarian who eats a lot of fried, oily, packaged and salty foods, then your chances of developing body odour issues are just as high.

So what can you do to improve your diet in order to deal with body odour?

When you eliminate heavily refined food from your diet and shift to a 100% healthful diet made of whole grains, massive quantities of leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, soy products, greens, lots of sprouts, white meat, raw nuts and seeds, and healthy oils, your body odour will all but disappear in a matter of weeks. Some of the best foods to fight body odour are parsley, cilantro, celery and all mint species. Aromatic herbs such as sage, rosemary, thyme, and oregano are also helpful. If a person doesn't manage fighting body odour despite a healthy diet, the problem might be more severe, and could require the attention of a doctor.
