15 Tips and Strategies to Control Excessive Sweating in Your Daily Routine (part 1)


Dealing with excessive sweating during your normal daily routine can be a nightmare especially when interacting with other people at your workplace, at business meetings, during presentations or in social situations.

These 15 tips will help you (a) to avoid the sweat triggers and (b) show you how to deal with them before and after they happen

If you haven't done so already, start by using extra strength antiperspirants. The nice smelling 'perfumed' deodorants that can be bought at most stores are not meant for tackling severe sweaty armpits.

Deodorants are very weak and cannot be compared to clinical or prescription strength antiperspirants, which are much more effective as sweat blockers and contain up to 25% aluminum content (the active ingredient which plugs the sweat glands and prevents the sweat from escaping).

For most people, moderate to heavy underarm sweating can usually be treated with clinical strength antiperspirants.

Always stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Cold water is essential to help your body effectively regulate your body temperature. If you find plain water somewhat boring then add a slice of lime or lemon as flavoring.

Avoid drinking too much alcohol and especially during lunch hours, alcohol dilates the vessels in the skin which increases the body temperature, and in response your body releases sweat to cool you down.

Choose cold drinks over hot drinks, especially in warmer weather and in warm environments. Iced drinks are ideal for regulating your body temperature and keeping you cool. If you do enjoy a hot tea or coffee but find yourself overheating and beginning to sweat, after finishing your cup follow up by sipping a glass of cold water to cool you down again.

Avoid all drinks which contain caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant which increases your heart rate and raises your blood pressure. It will have you perspiring and feeling hot, sticky and sweaty in no time at all especially if it's a hot cup of strong coffee.

If you do have to have your daily dose of coffee then drink the decaf variety, and preferably a brand of coffee that has been naturally decaffeinated which is the healthier option to decafs that have been processed with chemicals.

Sage is not just a flavoring for foods it is also used to treat a variety of illnesses and conditions including excessive sweating. In a German study it was demonstrated that drinking sage tea reduced sweating in almost 50% of people suffering from hyperhidrosis, and approximately 67% of menopausal woman had complete relief from night sweats.

Sweat gland activity can be reduced by drinking 1 - 2 cups of sage tea daily. You can purchase sage tea bags from health food stores or prepare it yourself by adding one teaspoon of dried sage leaves to a cup of boiling water and leaving it covered for 4- 5 minutes (not any longer).

Strain out the tea, add a slice of lemon and honey for taste if required and allow to cool. Sip the tea throughout the day

(nb. not to be taken by pregnant or nursing woman, or if undergoing treatment for a medical condition without seeing your doctor first)

Anything you consume that is hot and spicy will make you sweat more, foods such as curries, hot pepper and chilli dishes will bring you to a sweat quite rapidly and more frequently.

Avoid eating any kind of hot soup, like hot drinks they will make you sweat more, and foods that contain large amounts of onions or garlic can trigger perspiration and also cause body odor problems.

Replace full fat milk with low fat milk and eat plenty of calcium rich foods. Low fat and skimmed milk (ideally calcium fortified milk) helps to reduce the amount you sweat.

Foods rich in calcium such as plain low-fat yoghurt, cottage and cheddar cheese and baked beans are not only good for you as part of a healthy balanced diet, their high calcium content also helps in regulating the body temperature and reducing the amount you sweat.

Olive oil is recognised as a primary health food and should always be part of your diet. It helps in easing the digestion of food, the harder your digestive system has to work the more prone you will be to increased sweating.

Are you eating enough foods rich in B Vitamins - fish, poultry, eggs, meat, nuts, dairy products and vegetables etc? Not only are they an essential part of our daily diet they also help in maintaining and regulating the nervous system, and in particular the sympathetic nervous system which triggers the sweat glands.
