Every day, about 2.5 percent of people all over the world are worried about the problem of sweating too much. It’s a condition that is experienced by millions of people of different nationalities, gender, lifestyles and ages. Men and women aged between 13 to 62 are still bothered by excessive sweating.

The condition is common in puberty and for athletic individuals yes, but there are plenty of people who still sweat buckets while sitting in an airconditioned room attending a board meeting or class.

This leads us to ask what could be the causes of excessive sweating and what can we do to address the problemc

As the old saying goes “we are what we eat”. This still holds true in the case of excessive sweating since it has been proven that people who are affected by this condition should do something to change their eating habits. Let me explain: sweating is a natural process wherein the human body flushes out harmful substances or chemicals that we may have ingested. It’s something that happens 24 hours a day and it’s what keeps our bodies from getting poisoned by what we eat- fatty foods, foods laden with preservatives, rich in sugars, high in caffeine. All of these do nothing but worsen the condition of excessive sweating.
Eating the wrong kinds of food is one of the primary causes of excessive sweating in majority of hyperhidrosis sufferers. You may not have realized this before,but the more artificial substances you take in means more work for your body, your sweat glands specifically, in order for them to get flushed away. This means that the more fats and oils you take in, the more sweat you are going to produce, and excessive sweating is what you exactly want to avoid.

So What Foods Should You Not Eat Much Ofc

After coming to your senses that what you are eating is what’s causing you to sweat profusely you must take the next step of correcting your eating habits. Foods rich in spices not only make you smell bad but they also stimulate the production of tons of sweat. Sweating while eating spicy food means that your body is regulating it’s internal temperature. If you want to look nice on that first date, make sure you do not order the chili or anything spicy for that matter.

That being said, it would also be wise to cut down on processed foods or preserved goodies. Salts and chemicals used in the preparation or packaging of these foods are also harmful to your body. You would be sweating a lot just to eliminate this from your system, which would again make your problem of excessive sweating more pronounced. If you want to stop the problem of hyperhidrosis the most important thing that you can do is be conscious of the kinds of food you eat.



  1. Years of fatigue, excessive hunger, and anxiety anyone else with this problem?
    These symptoms have been ruining my life and preventing me from living normally so please real answers only.

    Years of fatigue, excessive hunger, and anxiety
    These symptoms have been ruining my life and preventing me from living normally so please real answers only.

    For two years now I have been suffering from the following symptoms. Extreme fatigue, anxiety, excessive hunger this all began when I was about 4 months pregnant with my second child. Before that I was not tired during the day or needed a nap. I was able to control my appetite and my weight.
    And I was not anxious all the time and did not have a problem with anger and irritability or depression. But ever since after I gave birth and seen a doctor for the symptoms that seemed quite normal during pregnancy turned into something that looked like depression and I was diagnosed with clinical depression.

    The following is the medication that I have been given and used to help me with the symptoms of that time maybe some depression feelings where there: Zoloft, lexapro and wellbutrin XL

    I was also told I have underactive thyroid and an inflamed thyroid and took Synthyroid for 4 months (side effects from Synthyroid excessive sweating, a bit less hungry) other symptoms where still there so then I saw an endocrinologist who tested for insulin, testosterone levels and THS and said everything looks good its not a thyroid problem or insulin but the testosterone was borderline / high which he said for women my age 26 would be at around 25-50 I was at 76.

    So then put me the birth control yasmin to help bring it down. It has not helped with any of my symptoms. I am still very tired all the time and need to take naps during the day I am always hungry and still really irritable and moody.

    I am a stay at home mom so I do not have the lack of sleep from over working and I do not eat because I am bored I actually feel hungry most of the time. All these symptoms have not been a problem anytime in my teenage years and young adult life until the point of my second pregnancy.

    I am thinking but I am not sure I am not a doctor. that a big possibility for all the other symptoms is the cause from the fatigue and then I eat to trying to give my body sugar to keep going. Which causes me to get moody irritable then anxious and maybe even a bit of depression because of the weight gain and crash dieting.

    Is there anybody who has had these problems and figured out the cause of the problem and been treaded correctly? I just want to get well, be normal, strong and not tired I do not want to feel so helpless and have this uncontrolled hunger anymore. Please anyone with any suggestions or maybe has seen somebody with these problems what did they do to get better?

    Thank you very much for all your help.

    Sorry for the long writing i just did not want to miss anything that could be the difference between the solution and the underling problem.


    • The symptoms you are mentioning would be typical for someone suffering from depression.
      As you told here, all of it started when being pregnant, so the triggering reason for your condition was hormones.

      As you may know (or have realised):
      The symptoms need to be taken care of, what you are experiencing is torture. Common techniques for torturing people use withdrawl of sleep, hunger, pain and anxiety..
      So its only a question of time before you might break and fighting your condition is imperative.

      I would suggest to eliminate any chances for hormone imbalance first.
      Without balanced hormones anything else will fail.
      You might try another pill, or getting off the pill for AT LEAST half a year.

      In addition to that physical exercise (at least 4 times a week for half an hour) and a healthy diet (vegetables and vitamins) will complete the treatment.
      Just dont expect an instant miracle. The condition took some time developing and needs time to “heal” like a physical wound.

      Your best weapon in your fight to get back in control again is perseverance. Pick a date nine months from now and keep up your workout schedule and diet until that day.


  2. Think I may have a heart murmur or possibly something else…?
    Someone I follow on Twitter mentioned that their brother had a heart murmur so I looked it up to see what it was.

    I’ve always thought I must have something wrong with my heart perhaps. I’m 14 years old, I measure about 5’5 and I weigh about 8 stone. I’m not skinny, but I’m not fat either. There are plenty in my year at school who are larger than me but yet I always find myself more out of breath. We have to do a race in sports day where the whole year race and each year I come second to last. There’s about 200 people in our year and when it comes to weight I’d say I’m in the middle of the year. I’d say I’m an averaged size teenager, and while I admit I’m quite unhealthy I wouldn’t consider myself obese, and if you looked at me you’d think I was quite skinny, I just have a bit of fat on me. Compared to everyone in my year I’m average weight.

    Anyway, the symptoms of a heart murmur seem to fit me quite well.

    ‘Shortness of breath, which may occur only with physical exertion’ This fits me very well, I’m always out of breath. This is why I always come second to last, I’m not a slow runner, I just always find myself out of breath. I find myself out of breath after most physical exercises.

    ‘Chest pain’ I get pains in my chest about 2-4 times a month. I’ll be sat there in class and suddenly I’ll feel random pains in my chest.

    ‘Dizziness or fainting’ I don’t really get this too much, and have never actually fainted in my life, but I do tend to fee dizzy sometimes for no apparent reason.

    I don’t really get the other two symptoms. ‘Bluish colour on the skin’ I have never experienced this, I don’t think.
    ‘Excessive sweating with no cause’ I can’t really think if I experience this. I don’t think I ever get excessive sweating, but I do find my palms are quite sweaty sometimes for (what it seems) no apparent reason.

    I want to go to the doctors to get it checked up but I’m worried that it’ll turn out there’s nothing wrong and that I’m just simply unfit and need to eat more healthier, and then I’ll feel like I’ve made a fool out of myself and wasted the doctors time.

    Anyway, question is, do you think I may have a heart murmur? Or is it something else, or nothing at all? :/



    • You could, but it’s equally possible that you have an arrhythmia (an episodic and treatable heart rhythm disturbance) See your primary doctor, explain what you have here, and ask for an EKG and a careful listen to your heart. This alone could rule out many of the most common issues.
      Best wishes.
