I've pretty much had a body odor problem since it was 'brought to my attention' about 20 years ago when I was in high school...one time someone said I smelled like skunk and from then on I became self-conscious about it,and to this day if I'm at a job and people begin to react or whisper I know the inevitable 'talk' is coming...I'm usually brought aside and this is addressed. It finally got to the point where I had to make something up and say it was a medical condition,which it most likely is.
I've tried many things including soaps,industrial strength deorodants etc with not much success. I also try to watch my diet but it seems when I eat certain things or combinations of things is when it really acts up...and warm weather is the worst!
So I'm thinking it may be things perhaps such as indigestion,candida,or adrenal. Although I've also tried things like cleansers,acidophilus,enzymes,and chlorophyll with little results. Perhaps I'm just not taking enough of them or in the right amounts or order.
Just a quick thought here. In high school, or there abouts when this started, did you by any chance have to take a sulfur based or containing drug? Like an sulfur based antibiotic or adderall? I ask b/c I once had a friend take a sulfur antibiotic and she developed a "smell." She went to a ND/MD who said it disabled her liver's ability to use sulfur. The smell was her bodies way of trying to rid her of it. He also told her her liver was spinning the wrong way. I think she said it was spinning to the left and it should have been to the right. Anyway, he treated her with a fruit juice fast for 5 days(I think that long), and gave her a homeopathic sulfur treatment. I don't know what kind it was b/c he was from Germany, and apparently that's where he ot his treatments from. But I know Hylands makes a sulfur homeopathic. Just thought I'd mention it.
Actually I wasn't taking any drugs then...that was after everyone started driving me crazy that they went ahead and tried to put me on Navane which is I think for anxiety,anyway I didn't take much of that either. Perhaps the smell started coming from all the junk food I was eating,including lots of milk!
So the liver spins?? Wasn't aware of that. Sounds like that doctor was probably spinning,lol.
Should I try MSM or something? That's a sulfur? I don't know if I should go on a juice fast as I have blood Sugar issues and possibly candida.
Haven't tried the colonic,I heard colon cleansing programs work just as well. I do the Ultimate Cleanse supplement bu Nature's Secret,seems to work ok for what it's designed for although not sure if it's the best for odor. I also have a candida cleanse program by Renew Life I think it's called.
I do chlorophyll but I don't think I've done wheat grass yet. Btw is it called fecal body odor b/c I don't think it smells like feces...it's mostly acid smelling.
I don't usually eat sauerkraut or kefir but I do admit I do a bit of dairy.
I think I tried Kefir once,but I do yogurt(I try to get the non dairy kind when poss) I also have probiotic supplements but I heard most of them get destroyed in the stomach. Thing is the probiotics don't usually get rid of the smell,perhaps it's something else?
