My doctor said that everything was fine except for my cholesterol and vitamin d levels. Surprisingly my cholesterol is very low and my vitamin d levels were very low as well. He gave me a prescription for Vitamin D. I was wondering if anyone else has ever of vitamin d effecting body odor?
I strongly believe and would wager a large bet on it that most of us who complain of body odor have parasites. I have read that 90% of the population has them. They can set up shop all over the body. The odor is caused by what they excrete from the foods we eat. We assist them by eating sugar, white flour, aka junk foods.
If we start taking parasitic herbs and eating foods that kill them like pineapples, pumpkins seeds, cayenne pepper, coconut oil and refrain from Sugar and junk foods, then you'll start to see them.
Note, doctors are less likely to diagnose you so don't waste your money confirming this with them, but rather, see for yourself. They are especially active at night and during a full moon.
Take a look at the parasite support site and you'll see other ways of dealing with parasites.
Re vitamin D - I am not a doctor and have no medical training but as far as I am aware there are two forms of vitamin D that can be measured in the blood - 25 hydroxy vitamin D and 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D.
In general only one form is tested and that is 25 hydroxy which is the major form of the hormone found in the blood.
I understand that in many cases if your standard test for vitamin D levels is low, and you then test the 1,25 dihydroxy levels there is a good chance these will be raised, which indicates inflammation in the body. Where there is inflammation, there is bacteria. Where there is bacteria there is infection. Also, yeast/candida make the inflammation worse so you can have a bacterial and a yeast infection at the same time.
Have you ever been tested for SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)?
I also understand that if you have a chronic infection somewhere in your body, then the FMO3 enzyme may be blocked. The FMO3 enzyme is responsible for the odour in TMAU.
It might be worthwhile asking your GP to test your 1,25 dihydroxy levels as a matter of interest, and if they are raised discuss the reasons. If you have never been tested for SIBO, then this is also another avenue you may wish to consider.
