Causes of Profuse Sweating & Tips to Manage Excessive Sweating

Sep 4, 2008
Sweating is not usually a problem for many of us but there are many others who have sweat more than the average person does. This condition is known as Hyperhidrosis and the causes of this problem are varied mostly depending on the person. Most people who have this condition have sweat glands that work in over drive producing more sweat than they should whether they are doing physical activity or relaxing at the beach. The head, underarms, back and hands are a few of the most common places you will notice that have a problem with excess sweat.

First of all, the condition can be broken down into two categories. Many people have been diagnosed with having primary Hyperhidrosis but there are some that are diagnosed with secondary Hyperhidrosis. The primary is a problem that has to do with the sympathetic nervous system, although the exact cause is unknown, the sweat glands produce more sweat than is needed to cool the body. Secondary Hyperhidrosis is a symptom of another condition. These other conditions can be anything from an over active thyroid to being over weight or obese.

There are so many different things that can cause this condition it is almost impossible to pin point the actual cause. The cause of your excess sweating can be something as simple as the foods you eat. Many people do not know it but some of the foods that most people use on a daily basis can cause us to sweat more than we should. Some foods that can cause us to sweat more than others are onions, spices and garlic. On the other hand, water based foods like fruits and vegetables do not help excessive sweating but they may help with the odor that comes with it.

No matter what the cause is for your excessive sweating problem you want to make it go away. Sweating too much can be embarrassing and you may loose confidence in yourself to perform in regular physical activities because of your condition. The best advice that anyone can give you is to try the natural treatments. Unfortunately, in the medical world there really isn't much you can do for getting rid of this problem. Fortunately, in the homeopathic world there are several things that may be able to help stop over active sweat glands and put an end to excessive sweating.

Natural methods of treating this condition seem to be quite popular but like with anything else the natural treatments are never guaranteed to work like you want them to. Natural treatments work can work on one person but have completely not effect on another person. However, if there is an underlying cause for the excessive sweating the natural treatments will most likely just cover up the problem or not have any effect at all. If you suspect that you have a problem other than excessive sweating you should talk to your doctor and get treatment there. However, most people tend to stick to natural means of curing the problem.
