Learn How to Stop Sweating Naturally with 3 Simple MethodsAre you one of the many unlucky folks out there, plagued by relentless excessive sweating? Do you find that you sweat a lot more than the average person? Are you having self-esteem issues due to excessive sweating? If so, then you may suffer from a condition called hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis affects nearly 3% of the world population. That percentage may sound small, but when you consider the size of this planet, you’re talking about millions and millions of people. It can be caused by a number of conditions, ranging from unhealthy eating to a hard-wired propensity for sweating, hyperactive sweating glands or even anxiety.

Hyperhidrosis may or may not be difficult to treat, depending on the severity of the problem and the causes. Either way, the tips in this article are sure to help – and help FAST!

Fear Not! The good news is, there are a few ways you CAN stop sweating naturally! In more extreme cases, some people end up having to go in for Botox injections (botox for hyperhidrosis); some people even have to have ETS surgery! More than likely though, you can start mitigating the problem with less evasive, natural techniques.

If you don’t want to go through drastic measures to stop or control sweating, you can try the following natural methods.

Now, although I’ve outlined this post with “3″ methods to stop sweating naturally, really their more like 3 avenues of attack. Each avenue (or strategy) is chock full of many solutions. So, that said, make sure you read through all three sections to catch the hidden gems within:

Method #1: Improving Your Diet

Everything you eat and drink must eventually come out. If you eat a lot of processed foods and drink a lot of caffeine or sugary drinks, you will sweat more. Why? Because the chemicals found in such foods are difficult for your body to digest. One of the things your body will do to get rid of the toxins is sweat them out. Also, caffeine is a trigger for hyperhidrosis. Cutting down on it will help your body stop sweating naturally.

I myself drink coffee from time to time (it’s one of my very few vices), that said I do recognize that the more coffee I drink, the more I’ll suffer the inevitable consequence – Disgusting, dripping sweat from my hands, face, feet and underarms – Ughhh!

The Diet guideline below serves as just that; a general outline. It’s not an exact food list of things you can and can’t eat. Here, I’m just going to be providing you with more direction in your food choices.

Here is a list of healthy foods you can eat:

·         Avocados

·         Wheat bread

·         Apples

·         Baked chicken

·         Tuna

·         Seeds

·         Cucumbers

·         Carrots

A solid (more exact) diet guideline for controlling excessive sweating naturally can be found here ==> Hyperhidrosis Diet Tips

Basically, all fruits and vegetables are safe to eat. Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day. With a lot of water in your system, your body will be better able to burn food. This will reduce perspiration. Another reason that water decreases excessive sweating naturally is due to the face that water lowers your body’s core temperature from the inside.

Speaking of lowering your body’s core temperature…here’s a little tip.

The next time you feel flushed or like you’re experiencing the flash of a hot spell, throw some ice cubes in a paper towel, wrap up the end and create your own little ad hoc ice bag. Then press the bag to the inside of your wrists. This area is like a pressure point for your body’s heat. cool off the inside of your wrists and you’ll start feeling cooler all over in just a few minutes.

Top Stop Sweating Naturally Deodorants

If the idea of pouring excess amounts of aluminum chloride on your skin freaks you out, you do have some alternative options. These natural, stop sweating antiperspirants will keep you dry without an overly excessive amount of chemicals. No matter what, you’ll have to put up with some synthetic ingredients in any store-bought deodorant. That said, these recommended, antiperspirants are minimalistic in nature.

Thai deodorant is a blockbuster hit among consumers who are trying to stop sweating naturally. You’ll find with most natural antiperspirants, Alum crystals are used.

This one is no exception

It uses these natural crystals to safely block your pores from unstoppable armpit sweating. When it comes to finding a happy medium between a natural solution and a proven product, Thai deodorant takes the cake. Check out the SUPER POSITIVE reviews on Amazon!

Witch Hazel is another natural sweat stopping favorite of mine. It’s perfect for facial sweating.

Just pick up some witch hazel pads and apply to your face in the morning (or really anytime) to experience long lasting dryness and a fresh cool sensation.

The natural astringent in witch hazel is the secret to its stop sweating success.

Crystal Stick is another fan favorite. You get a lot for your money as the natural antiperspirant packs quite a punch. You won’t have to layer it over and over to feel its effectiveness. Just like Thai deodorant, Crystal’s reviews are stellar.

Women seem to prefer this one for its scent. Did I mention it not only blocks sweat but also neutralizes odor naturally? Yup. This thing has it all. Highly recommended!

Although it’s a little on the pricier side, Weleda Wildrose gets a lot of great reviews from women who are going green and trying to incorporate more natural, organic solutions into their lives.

It has a lovely scent and it’s really amazing how effective they’ve made this antiperspirant without overdoing it on chemicals.

Method #2: Stop Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety cause a lot of sweating. If your heart is pumping faster than usual, you will sweat more. If your nerves are on edge, your body will perspire. You must either stay away from whatever is triggering your anxiety or learn how to control it. Learn some breathing techniques and spend a few minutes a day meditating.

If you’re in an environment that triggers anxiety, place your hand over your stomach and take deep a breath; hold it in for a few seconds; release it; wait a few seconds; then start the process over. Proper breathing comes from the diaphragm and can be seen my your belly expanding and retracting with each deep breath.

I use meditation to master my own stress and anxiety. I highly recommend it if you consider yourself a nervous person.

Don’t worry, meditation won’t involve you dressing up in some kind of ceremonial robe and chanting “Om” over and over. I mean, you can do that if it pleases ya’ but it’s certainly not necessary.

Meditation can be done in the morning, before bed or whenever you find it most convenient. I sometimes even meditate in the shower. The real point of the practice is taking a little time out everyday to relax, find inner peace and show gratitude for the good in your life.

The power in continued meditation can be felt after just the first few days.

You’ll find yourself generally calmer, at peace and with a more relaxed perspective on life. This one single ritual added to my natural sweat stopping regimen has decreased my anxiety induced sweating TENFOLD. You gotta give it a shot!

Don’t forget to improve your confidence also. Confidence is key. When you feel less stressed and more confident, your body slows down and you’ll find that a lot of anxiety induced sweating subsides. Try to engage in exercises daily that improve self esteem and make you more comfortable in your own skin.

You can also try aromatherapy to stop sweating naturally. Lavender, germanium, and rosemary are known to have stress-relieving scents, so carry one of these around with you every day so that you can stay calm.

Aromatherapy is a very passive way to decrease stress and anxiety. I like to use Glade scented plugins around my house for a nice calming boost everyday. I’m a big fan of their Vanilla flavor. Pluse, vanilla is a natural aphrodisiac so my wife and I definitely enjoy the encouragement – ha.

Method #3: Use Natural Remedies

Here are a few remedies that may be used to stop sweating naturally:

  • Eat more olive oil in your diet. Olive oil lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, which in turn reduces sweating.


  • Drink sage tea every day. Sage tea acts as an astringent and controls sweat glands. Drinking one cup of sage tea a day will prevent sweating.

    The magic ingredient that makes sage a wonderful sweat prevention tactic is Tannin. Tannin, a derivative of most tea leaves, contains tannic acid. When ingested regularly, it will dry up your sweating problem from the inside out.

    Not to mention, tea is healthy for you. That makes this natural sweat solution not only medically beneficial but also pretty darn convenient. I start every morning with a nice cup of sage teat (sometimes two). It works extremely well.


  • Shower twice a day and clean the affected area(s) thoroughly. When you get out of the shower, rub talcum powder onto the affected area. This will help control the sweat and eliminate the body odor associated with it.

    If talcum powder isn’t enough to tame your “sweating beast”, try Goldbond Medicated Powder. You can pick it up through the link I just provided you (on Amazon) or get it at most drug stores.

    Here’s the deal, Goldbond is a medicated powder that has a cooling effect on your skin. It works particularly well for groin sweating. Yes, I realize groin sweating is kind of a taboo topic – but hey – let’s get real here :)

    Now, what if you have trouble powdering up after your shower because you instantly start to sweat the second your shower is finished? Here’s the solution (and, of course it’s a natural sweat stopping solution).

    The best way to shower by the way is to start the shower off with warm/hot water in the beginning and end with a blast of cold water for 3 minutes. This will keep you cool after you get out and start drying off.

    One of the most frustrating things about having an excessive sweating problem if when you start perspiring the second you get our of a shower. You instantly go from feeling clean to feeling gross. This end of shower, cold water blast will totally prevent this problem from occuring. It’s a part of my morning regimen and works very well before getting powdered up and dressed for the office.


  • Mix a few drops of lemon juice with a small amount of baking soda, and apply the mixture onto the affected areas. Let the application stay on for fifteen minutes and then wash it off with water.

    If you apply this solution to your underarms, don’t be too surprised if the skin lightens a bit where you’ve applied the mixture. This is totally normal, temporary and will go away after about a day. Believe me, the effectiveness of the remedy makes this little side-effect well worth it.
