Ginger tea is an excellent detoxifier as it contains antioxidants which help to remove toxins from your body by helping the body to break into a sweat. When you sweat, your skin releases the body fluids that have circulated and removed wastes from your body. Due to the antioxidants in ginger, your body will release even more toxins into the sweat, and thus the smell of your sweat will be worse than normal.
You can eat ginger everyday, and everyday have a ginger bath, but it will not solve your body odor problem if you continue to put toxins into your body. Ginger works hard to eliminate toxins from your body, and thus you need to do the same.
Most toxins that come into your body do so by the toxic foods that you eat. These are foods such as processed foods, foods that are high in saturated fats as well as cooked and baked foods.
The vast majority of people can prevent body odor by 1)bathing frequently; 2)changing underwear and socks daily, because underclothes retain skin debris that bacteria break down to cause odors; 3)using deodorants that contain low levels of bacteria-killing metals such as aluminum, zinc or zirconium; and 4)using powder under the armpits and groin to keep the skin dry, which prevents bacteria from growing. Bacteria grow rapidly on wet skin.
You can also use ginger juice as a natural deodorant to help neutralize the odor. Apply the juice to your underarms after a bath or shower, or as needed throughout the day. To obtain the juice from the ginger, grate the ginger and then use a cheese cloth to squeeze the juices out.
Body odor is caused by the toxins that are brought out of the body through the process of sweating. If you were to have no toxins in your body, then there would be no odor when you sweat.
Therefore the first thing that you will have to do in order to combat body odor is to eliminate toxins from your diet, and start eating lots of living foods such as leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts and seeds. Herbs such as cilantro, sage, rosemary, thyme and peppermint are very effective in helping you to deodorize your body from the inside out.
Eccrine glands, present throughout most of the body, secrete primarily water and salts. Apocrine glands, however, are located in areas with abundant hair follicles, such as the armpits, groin, or scalp. These glands secrete fats and proteins to be broken down by the bacteria on the skin.
