When Does Gluten-Induced Body Odor Stop?

Recommended Posts

I expect it to work on a case by case basis, I mean, but what has your experience been? I know not everyone gluten intolerant will even experience BO in the first place, but for those of you that did, did it take any of you months or longer? I've gone 5 weeks without any unsafe foods, without measurable improvement. People still react to the smell. In addition to the possibility that it's just going to take longer, could there be any complications of gluten intolerance that BO could be indicative of, that couldn't just be solved by going off the stuff?

Sorry, I didn't get it. I did notice a change, but it turned out that I was drinking too much ginger tea, which has some negative effects.

I bet if you drink lots of water and take daily walks, you could speed it up a little.

I can't say I experienced this either, or the people in my life are too polite to mention it.  :D I DO get BO is I just use a deodorant rather than an antiperspirant but as long as I wash well and reapply antiperspirant every 20 hours or so, then I am fine. My level of BO hasn't changed. It's high for a woman but I am a heavy sweater... in feminine terms: I "glisten" profusely.  LOL

 

I know there are prescription antiperspirants that actually stop your sweating in the treated area, but I'm not that severe of a case so I haven't looked into it.

Hi do you use  rock chrystal deodorant.  I have found that this cuts down on the BO smell.  It works by stopping the bacteria that causes the smell multiplying.  The brand I use in the UK is Pit Rock.  It is a little more expensive than a normal deoderant, but the chrystal lasts ages.  It is also a natural product.  No aluminium in it.

My family has been using this product (salt crystal) for 20 years.   It works well (sometimes you have to freshen up after work on a hot day).  My stick (chunk) lasts a few years.  The best part is that it does not stain your clothes.  My white t-shirts stay white forever.

I use homemade lye soap.  It is an excellent cleaner.  Grandpa's makes a good bar which is likely in a store near you.  Homemade soap is often available at craft stores. 

 

Did I ever tell you about the first time I used  homemade soap?  It stunk!  Then I resoaped and it didn't stink.  I realized that I had gotten clean!  Mine is made of olive oil, palm oil, and coconut oil.  Lye is used in the processing.  It is gentle on skin.
