I have been very sick since July the 13 of this year, I had a terribly bad heatstroke, my blood pressure dropped really bad, I've never been a diabietic before and my glucose was up to 140 and I hurt from head to toe for at least 2 weeks. Over the course of a month these came back to normall, it did take a full month. I was outside, the temperature was 88 that day, not that hot but the humiddity was 90 some % that day, it nearly did me in. Since then my doctor made quit my job, I am fatigued dailly. I can't do hardly anything. I get out of breath doing the slightest thing, even in my basment where it's about 73 degrees, I just get worn out just moving around. Going up my basment steps sometimes I'll just sweat a little on the upper center of my back, I don't even know why I sweat there, I'm just walking up the stairs. I have just learned about this website and have been reading, it describbes me to a T. I have been taking several of supplements, just grabbing for any relief but to no avail. I'm using salt tablets with potassium and have taken it for around 2 weeks with no fail. I have had problems with sweating on my face for years, before the heatstroke I did sweat everywhere on my body and now if I can stand to do anything, I just sweat on my back and a band acrosst my stomach. Very rarely on my face. If I get outside in the sun, I go down hill instantlly, my face begins to throb and here comes a terrible headache and a neck ache. I noticed this day that my face had stopped sweating early on within the 2 hours I was outside. I had a more mild heatstroke about 15 years ago but the next day I seemed fine. For the last probably 10 years the sun has borrowed me more and more, especially on my face, I get very weak, and I'm totally blind so when this hits me I get very disoriented instantlly also. My balance is very off as well, This is a terrible thing to have happen but the things on this site seems to hit the nail on the head.
Hi all, I have been taking apple cider vinegar (ACV) for some time after I had a few health issues. My Cholesterol results were very good after ACV. I know it works as I used to go to the gym. Since taking ACV I somewhat sweat so much, because of the apple cider vinegar.
I've started again and now during football, I sweat the most, even though I'm not the youngest or the fastest of players.
I have suffered from anhidrosis for about 10 yrs.now I tried the baking soda religously for 4 mos.Sorry to say I dont seem to tell any improvement.It really limits what you can do,but since it is not a common disease I have been fighting for 2 yrs.to get disability.If anyone has any other suggestions please send to attached EMAIL ADDRESS
I tried baking soda on my own because I decided not to take previcid any more. I had no idea it was commonly used. I was just lucky to find this website because I was wondering if it was the thing to do. I took a teaspoon every night w/water when I woke up w/acid. i was happy to find out it was an acceptable cure. I also was diagnosed with hiatel hernia. I have not started the ACV yet but plan to.
Here is a very very interesting side result of the baking soda. For most of my life I have also suffered from Anhidrosis. Not a single doctor has been able to offer me a cure. Upon taking the baking soda for acid reflux, I almost immediately began sweating normally. Is there a connection, or is just coincidence. My doctors said my Anhidrosis was neurological.

My wife has been suffering from Anihidrosis. Initially she was complaining of excess body pain, weakness in limbs and felt better with Tramadol only. This was for at least two years. Later doctors diagnosed that she was suffering from fibromyalgia with underlying neural pathology (of course her nerve conduction test was normal). We sleep in an A/C room. One night just touched her body, it was surprisingly very hot. I remembered she used to tell that she does not sweat, hence she does not have body odour. Then realised that her problem was anihydrosis. She is now on homeopathic treatment. She has been advised to take 250 ml of fresh cucumber juice (without adding water or salt) daily along with homeopathic medicines. Then also advised that because of anihidrosis, she has all the said complaints because of accumulation of toxins in the body that sweat glands excrete. Hence advised complete bedrest, homeopathic medicines, and cucumber juice (fresh). Life pulls on.

Also, drinking wine definitely increases my incidence of acid reflux which is too bad since I love wine. Could I just take the baking soda prior to the wine?"
Anhidrosis is caused by dehydration. As is the acid condition. When one is chronically dehydrated, one's body fluids become concentrated and acidic. Before I became unable to sweat at all, I suffered awful rashes from my sweat as it was so acidic.
I cured over 30 years of indigestion and, in the end, acid reflux and hiatel hernia - with my first two glasses of water. I had much more serious health problems at the time but the end to heartburn was a very liberating moment. I ate so many things that I hadn't been able to eat for years that I now need to lose some weight! I can eat and drink whatever I want as long as I drink enough water and take the sea salt as per the watercure instructions.
Alcohol is extremely dehydrating and requires twice again the amount of water for the body just to deal with that and get back to even. Same with caffeine. I don't drink alcohol but I do drink coffee though I quit it altogether for a couple of weeks when I initially began re-hydrating because I had trouble drinking water in the beginning and had to start slow.
So many health problems are caused by a build up of acid...it is so easily remedied with the water/sea salt. So are other things. I used to have a couple of migraines a month but haven't had a single one in 4 years, since I found out about dehydration. And it's free! Except the salt is a little bit more expensive. I use filtered water but it's still WAY cheaper than rolaids, mylanta etc...I switched to baking soda because the other stuff was so expensive. But I am now convinced that the miraculous relief I got from baking soda was actually due to the fact that I mixed it with plain water.
Re-hydrating is so important - I wish more people would listen. Many symptoms will clear up once the body is convinced it wasn't just a fluke that it got some water. When the body stops rationing water (which is the purpose of histamine), things can begin to change very quickly.
