How to Effectively Manage Hyperhidrosis?

Did you know that there are two million people currently suffering from obesity, including myself, are there because of excessive sweating? And when I say excessive, I mean way beyond normal sweating. I have a sweating problem called hyperhidrosis (no joke!) Here are some ways to reduce it.

How to manage hyperhidrosis?

This is super important because many of us have trouble identifying when we sweat more than normal, which makes it more embarrassing when we actually do sweat.

By sweating, we are losing a lot of fluids and electrolytes through our sweat glands. One post on geeks health even stated this issue can lead to other problems.  If our bodies are deprived of fluids and electrolytes for a long period of time, we can easily become dehydrated. Dehydration makes us feel tired, less productive, and obviously not as healthy.

Excessive sweating causes us to have a decreased in our energy. It reduces your libido, and it makes you less interested in having interaction with your lover. Sweaty palms are usually the first sign that tells you're about to have a stroke. Usually, the person has to be quite distressed before this happens.

While we're on the subject of strokes, your ability to see perfectly fine spots on the wall may disappear, and your eyesight may be slightly blurred. Is this the beginning of the end? No. It's just the way our bodies do when we're suffering from a stroke. As for the vision, it's as good as it can be when we're not having one.

What about your blood pressure? Do you worry that high blood pressure is a problem that you will develop? Well, there are ways to control your blood pressure even if you're not sick. First of all, salt, saturated fats, and sodium are important to keep your blood pressure stable. But there is a hidden, extra bonus to eating more greens, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. They have the power to lower your blood pressure even if they are high in calories because they have no fat. They are packed with potassium which regulates your blood pressure.

In a perfect world, you would eat as many fruits as possible, as well as the darker ones. You would carry freshly opened cans of whole fruit in your bag all the time, endangers, apples and grapefruits are the best. Make sure you have a good source of protein as well, and get this from chicken or turkey, as they are the most versatile foods. And most importantly, carry some kind of salad with you, even if it's just a tiny half of a salad. Don't forget the dressing.
