Dr. Oz: Sweat Indicates Deadly Disease & Home Remedies for Sweat

By on March 16, 2010

Doctor Oz said that where you sweat and how much you sweat could be a sign of a life threatening disease.  Do you sweat 100 ml, 1 liter or 10 liters of sweat a day?  What is a normal amount of sweat?  In fact, all of these amounts can be normal, depending on how active you are.  Sweating helps your body to cool down and is a healthy body function.  The problem is if you are sweating 10 liters a day and are not active.

Types of Sweat

1.  Primary Sweating or Hyperhidrosis

If your sweat gland is overstimulated, then you may have primary hyperhidrosis.  With hyperhidrosis, you may get sweat symmetrically in places like your palms, feet, forehead, and armpits.

2.  Secondary Sweating or Hyperhidrosis

Secondary hyperhidrosis is the real problem.  With secondary sweating or hyperhidrosis, you will sweat everywhere (even your buttocks, chest and back) and it will not necessarily be symmetrical.  If you have secondary hyperhidrosis or sweating, it could be a sign of hyperthyroidism, diabetes (causes you to urinate more and sweat more) or cancer (lymphomas especially).

Home Remedies for Sweating

1.  Tea for Sweaty Palms

Tannins in tea will dry out your pores and help to shrink your pores.  So brew some tea, and let it cool off completely.  Then soak your palms in the tea for 20 minutes.

2.  Anti-Persperiant or Aluminum Chloride for Sweat

Deodorant only helps you to smell better, but antiperspirant usually uses aluminum chloride to block your pores and to prevent them from sweating.

3.  Botox for Sweating

  2. Sandra, I am not a doctor (just Dr. Oz’s biggest fan!)… so I cannot really advise you on this topic. I would try talking to a doctor and/or a nutritionist.
