Stop Sweating and Start Living - Mike Ramsey

I have absolutely no hesitation in saying "Stop Sweating and Start Living" will soon put antiperspirant companies out of business.

I was reluctant at first to endorse any product but this book was different. The remedies it suggests are all-natural and target the root causes of problem sweating.

My only complaint is that it is only available as an instant access ebook. It can't be purchased in bookstores or on Amazon.com, but I'm sure the instant download feature is popular with people overseas and those who are ready to get started.

I strongly recommend "Stop Sweating and Start Living" to anyone who sweats excessively in the underarm, hand, foot, face or back areas.

Let's start this weeks article with a story about a good friend of mine named Hale. Hale had sweating problems in his armpits and on his hands. He was a manager at an automotive parts store and was interacting with customers and co-workers all day long.

As you can imagine Hale's sweating problems caused him a lot of stress and embarrassment. He often had to get products off high shelves for customers and had a hard time not revealing his soggy underarms. When dealing with receipts and paperwork or holding a pen his hand sweating made life difficult.

He tried numerous treatments and remedies but all were for naught. Sure one might work for a few weeks or even a few months but sooner or later the sweating problems always came back. Prescription antiperspirants made him itch and stung his underarms. Powder barely made a dent in his hand sweating problems.

Sweating problems can have a big impact on people. The problem noticed in children is aggravated due to the remarks of their friends and also the lack of knowledge that there is any treatment for sweating problems. The care and concern of the parents is pretty much crucial in determining that the child is not undergoing extra stress due to the already teasing problem—stress can increase this problem considerably!

Functional sweating or the normal sweating which is required for our body needs some trigger to start like exercise exertion or high temperature; but axillary hyperhidrosis or any type of hyperhidrosis does not need any trigger to stimulate. Though it is noticed that it is further enhanced by stress and anxiety. Many patients try treatments for sweating problems that may include antiperspirants medications and even ETS surgery but the chances of recovery depend solely on the individual patient. Patients suffering from sweating problems may have some other microbial problems on their skin.

Diagnosis of hyperhidrosis is done from patient history as many cases have family history of hyperhidrosis. Visible signs of excessive sweating are also used for diagnosis. Though there are no formal stages or scales used to describe axillary hyperhidrosis in patients but still physicians use mild moderate and severe as terms to describe the condition of axillary for their own clinical description.

Laboratory testing certainly plays a vital role in determining the presence of sweating problems as individual or as a secondary effect of some other diseases which may include pheochromocytoma carcinoid or other malignancy tuberculosis and adrenal pathology. There are many tests and techniques that are used for diagnosing excessive sweating and they are beneficial for the patients.

Dietary restriction for sweating problems

It is noticed that diet plays a special role in restricting mild cases of hyperhidrosis and care should be taken in taking the items that can increase the problem. Physical activities may also have to be reduced. Coffee tea cola soft drinks and chocolate have been found to increase the rate of sweating and therefore it is advised that if you have mild cases of sweating problems you should restrict your intake of these food items. You should consult with a specialist about the diet habits that you should develop right from the time when the sweating problems are noticed.

Sweating problems and clothing

Among all the types of hyperhidrosis the most noticeable is underarm perspiration as it tends to spoil and rotten the clothes of the person and is immediately noticed in social sector. The person suffering from sweating problems becomes more and more conscious about his or her issue and this in turn increases it. Certain fabrics and colors should not be worn by the persons who are suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis.

Sweat stains form rings around the underarm of the person and sometimes patients say that they have to change the shirt two or three times a day. It is obvious that their social interaction is lowered and they feel the pressure. Women also suffer from same problem and they have a constant threat in their mind about the stains and rings that may appear anytime around their shoulders. A proper consultation with the doctor about the fabrics and colors can certainly help you to reduce the social stress that is induced with sweating problems.

There is help for those with sweating problems. Continue in your quest and read as many books as you can get your hands on. I recommend reading Stop Sweating and Start Living by Mike Ramsey. Just like Hale this author suffered from excessive sweating problems and discovered a natural remedy.
