Trill, just to let you know that Bentonite clay (in a P & B shake) and chlorella has helped with the bo. I don't know if it is good to take Bentonite everyday but it tastes good and seemed to do the trick. Thanks for the suggestion, I haven't used it in a bath, I am afraid of wasting it, but will check back after I do that. Maybe putting it on a washcloth for specific areas would be good.
I found this online:
Another fantastic detox solution is a Bentonite Bath, just put a few teaspoons of bentonite into your bath water. The hot water will open the pores and the bentonite is thought to draw out toxins. Have a hot soak for 10 minutes for your first bath , working up to 20 minutes. You may feel tired after your first few baths so have them in the evening.
Take some powdered chlorella or spirulina. the chlorophyll will help temporarily. When I took some spirulina one time I noticed that my normally smelly BM's had no odor whatsoever. I don't normally have much of a body odor so that was no prob.
you can put a tad of bleach in hot water and bath with that.
what kind of soap are you using and how often do you change your washcloth?
what kinds of foods do you eat?
drink plenty of water. take 2 baths a day.
Look into purchasing some salicylic acid soap to help break up the dead skin on your body.
I once heard of a lady on Discovery Health who had the same problem and they found after many years that something was wrong with her gut almost like leaky gut, her body was releasing foul chemicals and she had to be put on medication, but she complained of the same body odor.
I eat modarately clean and it is not really a body odor during te day problem but more of like the odor itself is hard to remove with bathing. Like it is stickier than most people's bo. Maybe other people can even get clean by rinsing but I sometimes can still smell bo after using soap and washcloth. Or soap and brush. I took Bentonite internally today, but haven't tried putting it in bathwater yet. That seems like that would be expensive the stuff is not cheap!
Try this for one week. Drink from half gallon water to a gallon a day.
Take some form of chlorophyll ie spirulina, chlorella, then before bed take some activated charcoal tablets,
take 2 baths a day with some bleach (not too much) in a hot bath with a good bar of soap.
write back to me what happened, ok?
the clorophyll and charcoal sound good, but I am afraid of the bleach in the water, trying to get rid of the bad halogens in my life not more of them!
but from what i have read, bathing every day is too much, although I do bathe once a day usually. It is not like I have bo but my skin does not always smell fresh of soap when I am done showering or bathing. Maybe everyone is like this, i don't know.
Bathing everyday is definitely not too much, and if you don't trust me your co-workers will complain to management on you, because they do it to ppl at my job. Folk are very mean to ppl who smell bad. So I hope you are self employed.
Your body perspires and sheds dead skin everyday: things it no longer needs. Bacteria in the air feeds off of this stuff. So bathing at least once everyday is an excellent idea. If you use a moisturizing soap, then bathing 2x's a day will work miracles for you.
I understand about the bleach. I used a tad of bleach in my water and it did wonders for my skin I guess because it is alkaline and my skin was kinda acidic. My skin cleared and smelled heavenly when I used bleach, but I didn't do it everyday. I got the bleach idea from this once popular health book, a really old lady in her 90's who was health conscious recommended it along with clay baths.
Truth is, we are all going to die someday of something. There is no need to run scared over every little thing or be hesitant to try things. Just my take, but hope it all works out for you.
BTW we have a coworker w/us who apparently doesn't think bathing everyday is a good idea either, and we run when we see him he smells so bad!

what the hek? I am writing because i dont smell soapy sometimes in certain areas after bathing, I don't stink to where people complain. when i get out of the shower and put my nose right on the skin , maybe it doesn't smell like soap. sometimes. Maybe I gave the wrong impression here.
I take 1-2 showers a day, sometimes a bath at night.
It's Surfer27 here. I totally agree with your posting!! No amount of washing, will get rid of my fecal body odor, as I have noticed!! I have tried alot of different things over the years and still, I am just as confused as the day I started to try things for this fecal body odor. I am determined though, to not give up and keep fighting this, as hard as it may be everyday, I still believe that God has a purpose for me, even if my bowels/rectum does smell!! I don't know what that is yet, but I am sure in due time, He will show me what that is!! Umm, a couple of things to look into would be:
1. Heavy Metal Poisioning
2. Candida Albicans
3. Hemorrhoids, Anal Fissures or Fistulas
4. Weak Pelvic Floor Muscles
5. Get a colonscopy to find out, if you have a form of anal incontience
6. Try some Betaine HCL or even some Bentonite clay in the bathwater for 30 minutes.
If none of the above doesn't work, then I would suspect, you either have TMAU, or some unknown disease at this point. Also, look into a Chinese Herbalist. They can help with odors within the body, as well as out. I hope this information helps you. Alright, take care and God bless. Bye for now.
Hi Surfer. mine was not fecal odor, but on the skin. Nothing anybody else but myself would notice i think. Chlorella has helped and green powder type suppelments. Sometimes deodorant itself has an odor and that is what sticks on the skin, maybe that was the problem. I found one that has a nice bubbly bath or fresh scent. Maybe the scents they put in some deodorants change as the day goes on!
