It is a myth that bad body smell is due to perspiration. In reality,
your sweat is odourless. Bad body smell
is caused due to activity of bacteria on sweat.
Sweating is a normal human biological process &
response to certain condition. In addition, if
there is accumulation of toxins in your body, it can also
smell bad. This accumulation of toxins is due to
your bad food habits. If you take right kind of food,
your food can be your medicine for your bad body smell:
It is a natural purifier and it has
a very effective deodorizing effect. All
green leafy vegetables have chlorophyll in them. It
also helps to detoxify your body by
removing toxins from your body.
Good natural vegetarian sources of chlorophyll are:
- Mustard leaves etc.
Having enough quantity of water helps
your body to dilute & get rid of
bad smell causing toxins from your body. When
you add lemon to your water, it helps to
detoxify your body. But be sure to have
lemon water without salt & without sugar. You can
have lemon water in between your main meals.
3)Fruits & green tea:
Always prefer simple and balanced food. Include
lots of seasonal fruits which will help you to
remove toxins from your intestine naturally. You can also
have green tea & herbal tea instead of black tea & coffee.
However, there can be many serious diseases that can
also cause bad body smell such as:
- Diabetes mellitus
- Kidney problem
- Athlete’s foot
- Urinary tract infection
- Tuberculosis (TB)
- Skin infections, etc.
If you feel to have some problem in your body &
if there is a sudden change in your body smell,
consult your doctor immediately.
