I used to take liquid chlorophyll and ACV together along with VIT C packet for a morning drink.(This was 2 years ago) I liked that it got rid of the stubborn onion smell that I had under my arms as well as reduced odor down there. I had gone to a disneyland trip and bought these chlorophyll tablets to use during that did not work and again the odor returned(Embarrassing). I decided to just try a different deo and never went back to chlorophyll. A couple of months ago I decided to try it again as I was growing a paranoia that I was giving off an odor. Usually I can smell when my deo is failing but I couldnt smell anything this time around... yet customers and some coworkers wouldnt stop snifflling. Altough I didnt smell anything I decided to buy the chlorpphyll again for peace of mind. I went into work and one of the maintance ladies stated it smelled like sewage. After that day she just kept sniffling around me although no comments were made. I stopped taking chlorophyll ( It also made me really sick) the stress of hearing that comment made me really ill that I didnt even eat for a couple of days. Ever since then I just believe that I smell bad. That was about 4 months ago and I still feel like I put off this odor :( My stomach is messed up I had diarreah for 3 months straight. My bowel movements are not normal as well. I used to go 2-3 times a day. Now I just go once a day. I really have no idea what happened. I did take a TMAU test which I have not recieved result for. THis whole experience has really brought me down. Anyone have an idea what happened? :( I am currently taking probiotics and trying to just to better mentally and I dont really get too many reactions as much as it started but I still feel like I put off this odor :(
I am a 16 year old with persistent body odor that will not go away. I cannot smell myself, but I have tried so many remedies including an armpit detox. I have one question. For people with urine smelling bo (someone told me to her friend I smell like urine so that's how I found out) and persistent gas, did you try the zinc and kelp remedy? I have tried chlorophyll and it did not work. Anything that y'all have tried including zinc and kelp? Results? Anything else I should try along with zinc and kelp?
Thanks for taking your time to reply.
My plan for when I try zinc and kelp
1.) One 50mg pill of zinc (morning and night)
2.) Two 150mg pills of kelp (morning and night)
3.) One teaspoon of organic coconut oil on an empty stomach (to maintain body pH)
4.) One cup of earl grey black tea to drink instead of coffee in the morning
p.s: If you would like to know, my underarms get sticky w/ even nothing on them. I gave up on deoodrant as it was just making me smell worse. I don't know if this makes any difference though. Just for thought.
I will try this plan for a week to two weeks to see if it works. I will post my results and get back to you guys after that.
Hi guys, thank you all so much for taking your time to reply. Well no I haven't been tested for tmau, I live in the dominican republic and Idk maybe doctors here don't even know abou it(? This last week I changed my deodorant again lady speed stick with aloe and the I applied cornstarch with baking soda and applied acv before my shower. It kinda worked like the two first days but then my smell appeared again. So I decided to go to the vitamin shop and take my savings again to buy zinc (nature's bounty brand) vitamin b2 50 mg solgar. Since saturday I'm taking 3 vitamin b2 pills a day, then 1 pill of zinc, overdosed with kal acidophilus probiotic (4 pills) and sunny green chlorophyll but I still smell terrible. I haven't been eating a lot to see if that could make a difference but no. Changing my diet is going to be hard because I'm pobre lol and that low choline sounds like a nightmare because I eat lots of beans, chicken, eggs etc. I'm really tired I do't wanna go back to school bc people hate me even the guy that used to like me looks at me with disgust, I remember a couple of months ago someone drop me a paper at class Idk who it was and told me "you're kinda cute and you're smart but your disgusting odor fcks it all up" you know the "pretty girls" of the classes bully me and talk a lot behind my back even my "friends" drop me hints like I don't even freaking know that I smell they don't know what I do everyday I only shower twice a day because college It's sorta far from my house, but I remember before when I was 10/11 I could spend the whole day without showering and had no smell (There were times without water here so...) I remember when I was 12 I didn't have any kind of odor except that when I peed my urine smelled like onion/garbage. I also got constipation problems since I was a child, I only went to the bathroom from 2 or 3 days a week and I thought it was normal.Idk I'm thinking I have tmau :( My armpit odor is like sour/onions/acid and my groin area odor is like dead animal/rotten/garbagefishy sometimes. I'm thinking about going to an endocrinologist I have never been to one but I remember they referred me to one but I couldn't go because when I turned 18 my insurance got inactivated. I don't have lots of money but I have 200 usd saved, that may not be a fortune but it's useful, an average doctor charges about 60 dollars here so I could probably go to 3 or 2 times. I sometimes don't feel like going to the endo because what if he doesn't help? What if he doesn't care and just want to take the money like it usually to us suffering from this condition? I'm really tired, I don't know how to defend myself I sometimes want to stand in front of everyone and open up about my problem but it's hard I'm shy person and they probably wouldn't care about my problem and mock me. I pray a lot but I feel like my faith isn't strong enough like I pray to God to heal me but when I go out I still think I'm going to smell, this life is hard. I have skipped a lot of things because of this, I don't feel like I have developed myself and have enjoyed my life, I have lost a lot of opportunities *sigh*I'm sorry if I talk too much but this is a place where I feel someone actually understands what I'm going through, you know I can't even speak with my parents or siblings because they always say like "you should shower more" or "use this deodorant". I'm gonna see and try the Colon Cleanse this weekend since I don't have classes, and If I don't see improvement I'm gonna go to the endo this monday. I'm gonna keep you updated guys, wish me succes please, I'm praying for every single one of us.
I just noticed this post is from 2004. I wish I had seen it before. Well, I have been suffering from exactly the same thing for years and years. And I can't smell it either, it's like a blockage. I thought I was the only one in the world suffering from these conditions. After many years on therapy, I did not overcome this, but I kind of learned to deal with it. I try to go to the bathroom regularly so I can "empty" myself, that is, I have to go to the bathroom as soon as I feel like it, it diminishes the gas. Unfortunately, I haven't found a cure yet. But I don't suffer as much as I used to by trying to accept it and that's important for the decreasing of the social situations you described.
I have read a lot about black tea reducing body odor. I'm going to give it a try. I also heard about sage tablets reducing the amount of sweat you produce so I'm going to buy some today. Apparently, it has to be the kind without thujone because thujone is a harmful chemical.
