What you exhale through your breath and your skin is a good indicator of what's going on inside your body. If you start to stink within hours of not using deodorant, rest assured there is putrefaction or fermentation going on inside your body, and that indicates a poor diet, usually.
Most Americans can't imagine going through a day without using deodorant. That's because they stink so bad that they feel obligated to apply toxic deodorant products to their bodies every single day.
The things that make you stink are the same things that make you unhealthy, namely, milk, cheese, meat, animal fats and refined carbohydrate products like white flour. Animal products are the most offensive dietary sources of internal stink by far, and milk products produce the greatest funk of all.
The more animal products you consume, the more toxic fumes you're going to emit from your armpits (and other regions). Most people believe a lot of misinformation about body odor; they think the body just naturally stinks and that body odor is just a result of bacteria growth in your armpits. This is utterly false.
Body odor is primarily the toxic gas from the fermentation or putrefaction processes going on inside your body due to the ingestion of animal products and processed, refined foods.
Of course there are bacteria in your armpits, but the kinds of bacteria that are living there depend on what you are "feeding" them. In other words, if your body is emitting nontoxic waste products, it's just perspiring excess minerals and normal healthy metabolic byproducts. That means the bacteria living in your armpits are not going to be as offensive as the ones that might be living there if your skin is emitting toxic byproducts of animal product digestion.
Some exerts suggest taking the 48-hour no-deodorant test, because it really will tell you something about your internal health. Maybe when you've got two days to yourself....
If you find that, during the 48 hours, you can't stand being around yourself because of your own body odor, then that's a strong indicator that it's time to start changing what you eat. Unless you're hard of smelling then ask a friend or family member.
Americans love to cover up symptoms rather than address their root cause. We like shortcuts, and it's a lot easier and quicker to apply a paste of aluminum to our armpits than actually clean up our metabolic processes. We are typically very hesitant to make lifestyle changes that require giving up their favorite foods, which might be chicken fried steak, a milkshake or a grilled cheese sandwich.
If your body stinks, that's a sure sign that there is something rancid going on inside, and disease processes are inevitably underway. Think about it: If you small that bad on the outside, imagine what's going on inside!
Raw food vegans have the cleanest bodies of all. If you know a vegan try smelling them one day and you'll agree.
Your body is a metabolic engine, and the exhaust of the engine is determined by what you are feeding the engine. You know how it's difficult to breathe if you're driving behind a diesel truck? The diesel exhaust is the result of the dirty fuels. In the body of a person who eats dirty food fuels (like animal products), there is similarly a horrible exhaust emitted from many different exhaust locations.
If you do change your foods and clean up your food fuels, you could potentially save yourself from many different degenerative diseases.
Chlorella and parsley as well as the culinary spice cilantro do a great job. of fighting smells in the body.
Whey protein, including organic whey proteins, still result in "dirty" metabolic processes that produce odor. Brown rice protein, however, is clean.
So in order to keep the air clean around, us avoid cheese, milk and dairy products.
Oh, please shower (or swim) daily too.
