Dr Oz: Excessive Perspiration

Dr Oz spoke about Excessive Sweating and Perspiration and gave a bunch of tips for how you can stay dry.  First of all, you have to understand what causes you to sweat in the first place.  Doctor Oz said that the organ responsible for making you sweat is your brain, which sets your body’s thermostat.  The hypothalamus is the part of your brain that regulates body temperature, so when there is a bacteria in your body, your temperature increases to kill the bacteria.  Aren’t our bodies amazing?

Dr Oz: Coffee Makes You Sweat

Dr Oz said that the first reason that you might have Excessive Sweating is from drinking coffee, because it alters your metabolism.  So coffee triggers Dr Oz Deoderantyour brain to cool off your body, and hence it can make you sweat.  One way to help control your body temperature and to balance things out is by eating Flax Seeds or other sources of Omega 3 Fats that fight off inflammation in your body.

Dr Oz: Medication Makes You Sweat

Doctor Oz said another reason that you might have Excessive Perspiration is from taking medications such as Cold Medications, Over-The-Counter Headache Medications, Anti-Depressants, and Allergy Medications.  Dr Oz said that you should look out for the following ingredients in medicine, which often have the side effect of making you sweat:

Oxymetazoline – found in Sudafed and Nasal Sprays for example

Pseudoephedrine – found in TheraFlu for example

Dr Oz: Deodorant vs Antiperspirant

Doctor Oz said that many of us are not using the right type of antiperspirant or deodorant for the problem we are trying to solve.  If you wear Deodorant, the sweat will not have a bad color or odor, but you will still sweat and this can be embarrassing when it can be seen through your clothes.  Antiperspirant on the other hand keeps the sweat underneath the surface of your skin, but any sweat that might escape will not smell very good.  Dr Oz said that you can get higher percentages of Aluminum Chloride, which is the active ingredient in Antiperspirants.  In fact, you can even get prescription antiperspirants if nothing seems to work for you.  Another tip is to put it on at night instead of in the morning.  You can even apply it to the palms of your hands if you tend to get sweaty palms.  And if all else fails, Dr Oz said that by drinking Wheatgrass, you can help to minimize the odor caused by your sweaty armpits!

Comments to Dr Oz: Excessive Sweating Causes & Deodorant vs Antiperspirant

  1. Most doctors are unaware that antiperspirants carry only “Cosmetic” claims. The FDA grandfathered antiperspirants long before the Mass Spectrometer was available for tissue analysis. It is true that brain fluids exit the underarm. The mere fact that someone suppresses these cascading waste fluids, similar to a plugged kitchen sink, goes against the natural process of the human body. It is known in the medical world that Breast Cancer has a higher incident in the upper outer quadrant of the left breast. Dr Phillipa Darbre’s research finds aluminum in cancerous breast tumors, cysts and aspirated nipple fluids.

  2. Well if Doctor was any good there are a lot of things he could do to improve the health of the people and he knows the problems being caused by today’s chemicals …The only time I heard him say something for health was he was not going to have his kids vaccinated and the reason he did not say but is it is a big fraud…..There is poison in the water…..
