We Americans will do just about anything to avoid smelling bad.
Just look at the L-O-N-G aisles in the stores devoted to personal care products. We spend over $40 billion annually in the US on body washes, anti-perspirants, powders, sprays and deodorants.
But those products are nothing but cover-ups (and trust me, not very good ones at that).
If you want to truly eliminate body odor, you have to start with where it all begins…
Your level of inner toxicity!
Body odor is the by-product of your body cleaning itself and eliminating toxins. So the more inner toxins you have roaming around in there, the worse your outer aroma is.
And all the nice-smelling sprays, creams, gels and powders in the world won't change that.
Let's take a little crash course in...
Body Odor 101
Your body is masterfully designed with a series of metabolic processes that help keep it clean on the inside.
They include urination, bowel movements, exhaling carbon dioxide and other toxins through your lungs, expelling mucus and dust through your nose when you sneeze and blow and eliminating toxins through your skin.
Since your skin is your largest organ, do the math and figure out what part of you plays the most significant role in purging toxins.
Now you may be wondering, "Where do all these toxins come from?"
Although things like environmental chemicals, smoking, pollution and medications all add to your internal garbage pile, far and away the biggest sources of inner junk are eating processed "non-foods" (including fast food) and poor digestion.
Bad food + poor digestion = HBO (horrible body odor)
Your body is meant to be nourished by real foods--things like vegetables, fruits, meats, whole grains, dairy and healthy fats. It has enzymes that break down each kind of food, it assimilates the nutrients, and any unusable residue is eliminated in your bowel movements.
But when you instead exist largely on processed, packaged foods that have never occurred in Nature-- your body has no clue what to do with them.
It tries to break them down as best it can and absorb whatever synthetic vitamins and minerals might be in them, but they mainly end up as acid wastes and toxins that your body (especially your skin, liver and kidneys) has to get rid of.
Body odor in the making.
Poor digestion is another culprit that makes you smell like you're "smuggling onions."
The typical modern Western-type meal is a smorgasbord made up of every kind of food under the sun and that's about as easy for your system to digest as eating an old tire.
When your digestion can't be accomplished like it should be, not only does that lead to acid waste accumulation (and you smelling like Pepe Le Pew), but poorly broken down food molecules that enter your bloodstream can also lead to inflammation and taunt your immune system too.
Plus let's not forget the fact that you're likely also suffering from gas, bloating, constipation and acid reflux on top of smelling bad.
How to smell REALLY sweet
If you want to make it so that you're not clearing out the elevator every time you step on, you have to acknowledge that smelling good on the outside comes from clean insides.
Here are three simple steps you can take to help make your innards squeaky clean and keep you smelling naturally sweet:
This is yet another reason to get your heart pumping at least 3-4 times a week. Sweating during exercise is a tremendous toxin-releasing process.
And with regular exercise helping to clean out those inner toxins and burning up some fat, not only will you smell better, your waistline will likely shrink too!
Just be sure to get your doctor’s OK, especially if you haven’t exercised in a while or at all.
2) Drink water
Water helps to flush out wastes and toxins and keep your entire system clean.
Aim to drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day, preferably filtered or bottled. And to give your detox system an additional helping hand, add a little fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice.
This should probably be obvious, but remember that water means water and not sports drinks, soda, coffee, tea or other sweetened drinks.
Just good old WATER.
3) Keep your digestion efficient
This is by far the most important thing you can do to help put an end to BO for good.
Now don't worry--having efficient digestion is not difficult or boring. You just need to pair foods together that are easier for your system to break down and give your body a little help if needed.
1- The food guidance
The Great Taste No Pain system can be your guide as to what you should eat and what you should avoid at all cost!
Great Taste No Pain explains why specific foods and food combinations cause poor digestion and the resulting health problems like IBS, diverticulosis, acid reflux, ulcers...and BO.
It also guides you on how to put together meals that your body can break down much easier, and gives you loads of delicious easy recipes to enjoy. You'll be shocked at how good you can feel after eating for a change.
And you will very likely be fresher and sweeter-smelling too!
Note: If you have gluten sensitivity, Great Taste No Gluten is for you instead.
You'll learn the same principles for efficient digestion as in Great Taste No Pain, plus get a gluten free survival guide and a collection of scrumptious gluten free recipes.
2- Get enzyme help if needed
Not only can the typical modern diet mess up your digestion and make you stink, but it also uses up LOTS of enzymes in the process. Eventually your body's ability to produce adequate digestive enzymes may be diminished and that can mean deficiencies.
Over the last 50 years increasing numbers of people are suffering from enzyme deficiencies and all the health challenges they cause. This directly correlates with our increasing dependence on processed foods and fast foods.
Enzymes are essential for your foods to be broken down like they need to be, because when they're not, look out. Even your washing machine will revolt at the smell of your shirts.
Plus, inadequate breakdown of foods leads to poor nutrient absorption, which can cause you to overeat (and pack on pounds) or develop deficiency diseases like osteoporosis.
So if you feel your enzymes may be running on the low side, it can make a huge difference in your digestion to give your body a little help with a superior digestive enzyme supplement like Digestizol Max.
Digestizol Max contains a carefully selected blend of 15 plant-derived enzymes that will give your body the help it needs to completely and thoroughly break down all of your foods—no matter what you indulge in!
Your days of stinking can be over soon!
You CAN say goodbye to nasty BO for good.
Not by covering it up with sprays, creams and powders, but by attacking it at its REAL cause.
To your health,
