deodorizing the whole body

deodorizing the whole body

odor emanating from the whole body often has internal metabolism factors

microbe overgrowth on the skin as a side effect of a challenged immune system can also be a factor

use of rancid products can also be a source of whole body odor

effectively treating whole body odor involves the following

  • check nutritional intake of odor causing compounds in food, supplements and medications
  • check for chronic conditions affecting immunity
  • check for nutritional deficiencies, particularly trace minerals, water soluble vitamins, fiber and hydration
  • check clothing and bedding cleaning techniques
  • deodorize internally and externally to restore microbial balance

once clothing, bedding and the body are deodorized there shouldn’t be any need for use of deodorant

any preferred moisturizer should be suitable

use a razor to shave hair and decrease the surface area for bacteria, fungus, parasites and viruses to populate

deodorize accessories

it is also recommended to deodorize all fabrics, tools and accessories that touch the body to prevent re-contamination

if anything can’t be deodorized or replaced then set it aside for now

deodorize the whole body

  1. rinse the body well with warm water
  2. use approximately 3-4 teaspoons of chlorhexidine and a wet wash cloth to cleanse the whole body
  3. leave on skin for approximately 2 minutes before rinsing well with warm water
  4. pat dry with a clean dry towel
  5. if underarm or genital skin is much darker than normal or is prone to rashes or has inflamed bumps then apply a small amount of anti-fungal cream
  6. moisturize the body including underarms and genitals to protect from dryness and damage
  7. do not use antiperspirant or any other type of deodorant
  8. wear deodorized or new cotton clothing
