For those who are new to the forum this site mentions reasons for BO,symptoms and cures for Bo. Some of these cures have been used by people in this forum and have proven to be benefical. Not all things work for everyone. But taking things like B5 for fecal body odors or B-Complex which has B5 in it has helped some. Someone mentioned that they had stopped taking just plain B5 for FBO because they were starting to lose their hair so it may be better to take the B-Complex or take it along with another form of B vitamin or a multiple vitamin, instead of just plain B5 by itself, or taking just enough, unless you are already bald. I was told by someone that B viamins should be taken with one another for balance, and that taking just one form of vitamin B was not good, but I guess we can all do our own research, at the time I was only taking B6. But remember it is good to get to the root of the problem too. But please do your research and just don't start taking just anything to be healed. There are others cures which may be due to having a hydrochloric defiency. Other cures may be due to digestive issues. Taking probiotics have helped some, digestive enzymes ect...Scroll down to digestive system at http://www.health911.com/remedies/rem_badbr.htm And see if some of these symptoms may be similar or exactly what some of you are going through. And don't forget to see a doctor because they do play a role in most of us getting better, whether or not they are able to diagnose your symptoms, God bless!
If you think you may have a problem with hydrochloric acid imbalance this is just some information.
http://www.jigsawhealth.com/articles/stomach-acid-imbalance-symptoms.html Also they said if you take a spoonful of Applecider vinegar before meals and this helps your symptoms you could have deficiency of acid becausem this also causes acid reflux and other problems. But if it makes your acid reflux worse you could have too much acid in your stomach.
Okay for the last few days I have been putting info in the forum about some of these products. Below in this foum I put information about goldenseal and it's benefits (see my update below) I also put info about the Hydrochloric acid deficiency and I also mentioned ACV just a few days ago, (you can look that up) But here is the info you asked for. Someone mentioned that B5 taken a few times a day helped them with their fecal odor problem.
(This talks about the benefits of Cayenne) I just happened to purchase my goldenseal with it by mistake with Cayenne in it. Also if you scroll down there is talk about hydrochloric acid deficiency. Other's in the forum have put info discussing it and what they have done to help themselves to rid them of their BO. What works for you may not work for others, it all depends on your symptoms and where they are manefesting. You will have to read what's in the forum as well because many people in this forum have taught me about a lot of things here too, that's how I learned.
http://www.diagnose-me.com/treat/T38116.html Scroll down and you will read all the information
about B-Complex and what it's good for) it mentions hydrochloric defieciency as well. http://www.ehow.com/about_5047305_primadophilus-bifidus.html
No body seems to be confused but you. All you seem to be doing is criticizing everyone having progress. What's your problem? Stop criticizing everyone else and work on yourself. The reason I take six different things is not all for BO. Since you want to know I had a hystorectomy a couple of years ago due to fibroids and constant Endometriosis. So I must take Calcium,and Magnesium because the Magnesium balances the Calcium. The calcium is being replaced by the calcium my body has been losing. Any woman who has gone thru this must take Calcium.
I 've had problems with acid reflux for years and since I'm off the meds for that I'm subsituting ACV for the hydrochloric deficiency which people with acid reflux have. I learn stuff when I come back to the forum, I just recently started that regime again because It's helps my acidity levels which causes acid reflux. I've told my story again and again, I'm not a doctor why don't you stop being so skeptical and just try something yourself.? I 'm not going to put every personal thing about my life in this forum. Even if it works for 100 people and not you you will still be negative and have something to say.
Yes I still take probiotics,yes I take digestive enzymes,yes I take B-Complex on a regular basis to stay healthy to help continue my process of healing. I'm 46 years of age what is your problem with me? I'm trying to stay healthy. For 25 years I had a problem with odor and now you want to give me a hard time because I'm odor free for 3 months? Stop giving me this hell,that's why I don;t come to the forum much because I have to go thru crap like this. I don't need this drama. Just because we aren't telling you what you want to hear you think it's fair to harass us? Leave us be and work on yourself. Life is too short.
By the way potassium is necessary and helps with kidney function. If your potassium levels are low it can cause problems in your kidneys. Also there are lots of deodorants with potassium that eliminate BO. Have a good day.
