Homeopathic Remedies for Body Odor

Homeopathic Remedies for Body OdorThere can be nothing more embarrassing than seeing people holding their noses and getting away when you enter because of your body odor. Stinking after a hard day’s physical labor is understandable, but having a body odor that doesn’t leave is a medical condition that needs help. Body odor is mainly a result of excessive sweating. The skin covered with sweat serves as a favorable place for the bacteria to flourish. When these bacteria unite with sweat, the decomposition of the chemical in sweat begins and it starts to emit a stinky odor. Body odor may arise from the whole body but the main sites that mainly let out bad odor are axilla (armpits) and feet. When a person engages in a lot of physical exertion or is under the influence of stressful conditions, the sweat increases and the body starts to smell. A diet with a high amount of garlic, onions, and spices is the reason for body odor in some persons. Alcohol intake, diabetes mellitus, and obesity are also associated with foul body odor. The Homeopathic remedies for body odor offer a complete cure. These are made of natural substances and have no side effects, work to extract the body odor from the root.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Body Odor

The stinky foul body odor can limit a person’s social interaction out of shame and embarrassment. Deodorants and powders used for camouflaging the body odor are only temporary and very short-term methods. They are just suppressive techniques and do not eliminate body odor from the root. The use of properly selected natural remedies, however, can very effectively treat body odor as well as extinguish it from the root. The aim of the natural remedies is to cure the condition rather than suppressing it. While selecting remedies for body odor, the site of the body part emitting odor is considered along with any specific kind of character of body odor. The character of odor may vary from person to person like sour, fishy, fetid, cadaverous, putrid, garlic-like, onion-like or pungent. In addition to these symptoms, characteristic constitutional symptoms of patients like likes and dislikes in food, appetite, thirst, sensitivity to heat or cold and any symptom that stands out dominantly are given a lot of importance while recommending the best remedies.

1. Sulphur and Psorinum: Best Remedies for Body Odor

The top natural medicines for the treatment of body odor are Sulphur and Psorinum. Both these remedies act as very powerful agents to get rid of body odor. These natural body odor remedies are successful in treating even the acute cases of body odor. The persons who complain of foul disagreeable body odor over the whole body that does not leave even after bathing can best benefit from these remedies.

Sulphur works best for persons who show heat sensitivity —such persons cannot tolerate heat. They also suffer from heated sensations in various parts of the body, mainly in palms and soles. Psorinum is selected mainly for those persons with body odor who are extremely sensitive to a cold environment. Such persons are so sensitive to cold that they sometimes need to cover themselves up warmly even in summers. The persons needing any of these medicines also have a tendency to perspire freely. Their skin is also very dirty and unhealthy looking with a constant filthy and foul smell.

2. Hepar Sulph and Rheum: For Sour Body Odor

Hepar Sulph and Rheum are the top natural medicines for sour body odor. Hepar Sulph brings about the best results in cases of sour body odor as soon as there is any exertion. The exertion can be either physical or mental. The person also starts sweating after any of these exertions. Rheum is the ideal remedy when the sour smell from the body does not disappear even after washing with water. The sour odor may be present over the whole body or specifically on the head for using Rheum. The sour odor in persons needing Rheum may appear after exertion or even in the resting position.

3. Silicea: For Foul Odor from Feet

Silicea is a natural remedy of great help for treating foul odor from feet. Silicea is even successful in treating horribly offensive odor emanating from the feet. Along with the intolerably offensive odor, excessive sweating on the feet may also be found in a majority of the patients. Due to increased sweat on feet, cracks and fissures in between toes may also show their presence.

Apart from Silicea, the other medicines of great help for treating offensive odor from feet are Baryta Carb, Graphites, Sulphur, and Sepia. Baryta Carb is a remedy of frequent use in children who have offensive sweat on feet. Most children needing Baryta Carb are chronic sufferers of throat complaints with the inclusion of tonsil inflammation. Graphites is the best natural remedy for foot sweat with offensiveness when deep fissures or cracks appear in between toes. Graphites helps in both getting rid of the offensive foot sweat as well as the cracks between toes. Sulphur is the top choice when extreme heat insoles accompany stinky foot sweat. Such a person may also feel the need to put the feet out of bed due to excessive heat in soles at night. Sepia, on the other hand, is the best remedy when feet remain cold with a horribly offensive odor.

Other Remedies

Remedies For Bad Odor from Armpits

Owing to abundant hair follicles in the armpits, most persons suffer from the bad odor in armpits. The various natural remedies that are very beneficial in treating bad odor from axilla or armpits are Sulphur, Bovista, Hepar Sulph, and Sepia. Sulphur is the remedy for body odor when armpits exude fetid smell. Even washing does not help to reduce that smell. A few persons needing Sulphur may specifically have a garlic-like odor from armpits. Excessive heat in the body may also be present for using Sulphur in cases of bad odor from armpits. Bovista is a natural remedy that works best to root out specific onion-like odor from the armpits. Hepar Sulph and Sepia, on the other hand, work very well when along with foul odor from armpits, the sweat stains the clothes. Hepar Sulph is selected when a yellow stain is left and Sepia is selected when a brown stain is left due to highly offensive sweat from armpits.

  19. Jean Bailey says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma. I am 60 years old, and I have a mild case of psoriasis of my finger and toe nails. For the past 20 years, I have noticed an odor, like rotting vegetables, of my scalp and torso. I perspire easily, at any temperature, and I am intolerant to humidity. Belladonna (30C) has helped when the heat in my body wells up, which starts at my head, neck, and torso. I literally have sweat pouring off of me, which makes my shirt smell like rotting vegetables. Since adding Sulphur (30X) and Rheum Officinale (30C), the odor from my torso has improved (my shirts no longer stink), but my head and back of neck odor is still sever, smelling up my entire house, and it is stronges after a night’s sleep. I mentioned my having psoriasis because I am wondering if I have developed a scalp condition such as seborrhea Dermititis, since the homeopathic remedies that I am sing has not made any improvement to these areas. My scalp has a slight burning sensation, as if it were sunburned. He two providers that I obtain homeopaths are Hyland’s and Borion. I can no longer obtain Rheum, as Borion has discontinued manufacturing it. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
