Hyperhidrosis - Excessive Sweat Remedies

Molybdenum and Bamboo Extract

I had hyperhidrosis from the age of 16 to the age of 56. While my hyperhidrosis was embarrassing, I had the kind that is a symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome. This kind makes you sweat, but the sweat has no scent.

At 56 I was doing a copper detox and noticed my hyperhidrosis had went away. I started checking my supplements to see which one had done this. I found two. It seems a deficiency in molybdenum can cause hyperhydrosis. For the detox I was taking 400 mcg a day. I was also taking bamboo extract to detox aluminum. Bamboo extract is high in silica. A deficiency of silica can cause hyperhidrosis. My bamboo extract supplement is 300 mg. I started doing the bamboo and molybdenum at about the same time and it was about three months of taking them that I noticed my hyperhidrosis was gone.

My night sweats stopped when I started taking 400 mg of magnesium every evening. I'm a male with chronic fatigue syndrome. Night sweats are a symptom of CFS. Magnesium also helps me sleep great. Also it's good for irregular heart beats. Get magnesium in 100 mg capsules, to start with, because too much causes loose stools. You have to figure out how much you can take.

Side effects from the very first drug I looked up nifedipine Although this medication is effective in preventing chest pain (angina), some people who already have severe heart disease may rarely develop worsening chest pain or a heart attack after starting this medication or increasing the dose. Get medical help right away if you experience: worsening chest pain, symptoms of a heart attack (such as chest/jaw/left arm pain, shortness of breath, unusual sweating).

Cut out wheat, fake dairy and added sugar! Sweating is usually a result of a deep seated infection. Sit and think what that might be. Kidneys, ( uti ? ) liver? Drink lots of water, preferably fully filtered ( no fluoride). If you ever had fluoride based antibiotics, then supplement with vitamin k2 and boron and start a course of Liposomal Vitamin C every two hours increasing the dose as you go! If you get headache, nausea ( herxheimer ) just back off the vitamin cdose a little! Now I am NOT treating as we simply have not enough information. An informed guess for you to consider! That thyroid though .... just stay away from mainstream? If you wish, find us on fb ... curezone group.

I have this problem. I will awaken several times a night just soaked in sweat. I am also 70. It has helped greatly to cut back on carbs during the day and absolutely no sweets, whether it be an apple or chocolate, that helps a bit..

hi Jane,

When not hormonally related, I've read that the body sweats at night to get rid of toxins. Try exercising a few times per week to a really good sweat, then you may not sweat at night. Rebounding to improve lymph node circulation might be helpful. Also, you didn't mention magnesium or potassium in your list of supps. Your meds may have caused a depletion in one or both, so try supplementing those. Please keep us updated!

I am over 70 years of age, on three pharmaceuticals; my blood pressure, heart and thyroid (removal of thyroid/now suffer hypothyoidism). Nifedipine 30mg, carvedilol 25mg, Synthroid 112mcg in that order. Plus vitamin supplements (CQ10, Serrapeptase, Policosanol , Vitamin E, D3, ,etc and I weigh 199 lbs. at 5'6”. I have an irregular heartbeat sometimes but otherwise I'm in great shape. Right now, I am having reoccurring excessive night sweating while sleeping. This has been going on for the past week. I wake up during the night and my bed clothing is drenched in sweat, making it necessary to change clothing before I can go back to sleep. I have suffered with this condition before but it only lasted a day or two but I had a cold. I have not been exercising and I am staying in the house. I am trying to keep my blood vessels open heart in good condition. I know I need to lose fifty to sixty pounds But this sweating is getting to be a bit much. Looking for advice. Thank you.

Your poor Daddy!! What a blessing he has you in his life! Nutmeg is my suggestion. I have used it to manage pain and for mental health. You might try him on 1/2 to 2 teaspoons daily. Just mixed in water is fine. It has a strong taste so drinking it down in cold water with a small snack to encourage digestion is my suggestion. The effects take about three hour to be noticeable and tend to linger for a few days. I would expect it to relieve the pain to a degree and to possibly help heal him. It seems to help my brain and muscles coordinate themselves. Cloves are a stronger pain reliever but very dehydrating in my experience. Maybe 1/2 to 1 teaspoon a day. If he gets very thirsty I have found fresh citrus juice to remedy it well, but it seems to reduce the effect of the cloves. I enjoy a treat of cloves and nutmeg, later followed by fresh grapefruit and/or a strong mint such as peppermint patties. Cloves and coffee are good together if he is a coffee drinker. Cloves, coffee, chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon in hot milk - I drank this when I was very fatigued and in pain but had to go to work. It was unexpectedly VERY potent! Raw eggs and kefir are other ideas. Fresh turmeric root would probably be a Godsend, as well. It can be blended in frozen orange juice with fresh lemon juice to make it tasty, or just eaten raw (but it sticks to the teeth). My husband only takes one or two small pieces daily and is impressed with how it improves his circulation. I use three times that; it is a very safe food. Holy basil would be another idea, it is very relaxing and somewhat inspirational in my experience. St john's wort. Ginko if you can find the real deal. Aloe.

In some people, magnesium oil can sometimes help with nerve pain and it also can help to relax muscles and prevent or significantly reduce cramping and muscle spasms. Given the excellent safety profile of topical mag oil, it would be my first choice for myself!

Nancy, thanks for the encouraging testimony about CBD oil. My father sufffered a spinal cord injury that resulted in paralysis over 30 years ago. He's been living in terrible pain with muscle spasms and burning nerves for all these years. I was just looking into CBD oil today! If allowed by Earth Clinic, could you please share the brand or website where you purchased the CBD oil from? I want to be sure whatever I get for him is safe and effective.

And if there's any other suggestions from others here on this wonderful site, I'm all ears.

I started using CBD (Hemp) oil for fibromyalgia a week and a half ago. I live where the temp is 90's +. I have serious hyperhidrosis of the head and face. I would sweat til my shirt would be wet just in a few minutes of walking outside or just getting into my car. Since starting the oil, I have barely sweated. I have suffered for many years of trying everything I could possibly find or hear about to help me. Not only has it helped my pain, it has made me not panic at the idea of being outside in the heat or even using a hair dryer!

VCO cured my hyperhidrosis! I do not sweat anywhere on my body accept.....the dreaded crotch area. After I shower I dry off completely and put a small amount of VCO in the nether region. I no longer need to use any sprays deodorants or panty-liners! Also, since I use VCO as an allover moisturizer my feet do not get funky from my black work-shoes.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Dear Skp,

Hi there. Sounds like you have multiple things in the body that are out of balance - sweating, menstrual cycles and constipation.

I am guessing they are all related. Making some dietary changes and including some key supplements may improve multiple symptoms.

Here are a few pages to study to think about what may apply to your current health situation.

Lugol's Iodine

Top Ten Wellness Tips

Ted's Alkalizing Formulas

There is a lot of information on this site. It can take some trial and error, but I think you will be able to find things to help you improve all of the concerns you listed.

Hi I have the same issue as you with the excessive sweating on my face. Not a day goes by where I'm not dripping wet on my face and and it's so hard to go places and have my face dripping sweat and people looking at me like I am on something. My doctors don't say anything except oh well maybe you need to lose weight but I have lost weight. I lost a lot of weight and it has nothing to do with that. I have tried Botox on my forehead and that has never worked. I was wondering what it was you're saying about your period, because I have not had my period in 3 years now I was not on the pill but I have polycystic ovarian syndrome which causes infertility and have had constant constipation for a few years now. I was wondering what you were talking about when you said that the constipation and your period and the birth control has something to do with you're sweating. Thank you in advance. By the way I've also tried the ACV and honey and it didn't work either.

Vitamin B6

So basically I want to share my experience.

In the past:

I sweat when I leave the door in the morning, noticing my armpit getting wett increasingly. Once it got to the max, it will stay like the same all day, just wett. Also I noticed that cafeïne makes it worse. Also something in embarassing moments it gets extreme and even hot flashes occur.


I don't sweat that much, it is still there and I notice wett areas which sometimes fades in and out, which is good I think. In the past it was continiously. Also no hot flashes and cafeïne is not that worse anymore. How come? I use Vitamin b6 (p-5-p form) in the morning from now foods. Besides that I use Vitamin D including all co factors in one poll. Also I use zma before sleep. I feel more relaxed now, no hot flashes, even when embarassed and comfortabel. I will soon include a good b complex as addition to balance the b6 but really, if you feel having the same issues; give it a try.

The form of magnesium to take is Malate. Magnesium malate. It also has calming effect. Magnesium citrate can cause diarrhea in some people.

Hi DanceJunkie - Thanks so much for your post! Glad this amazing remedy is helping you! You say:

I have been drinking 2 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar & 1/4th tsp of bs 2-3 times a day & I swear it has helped me a TON!

^ does bs stand for baking soda? I am just wondering if you added baking soda also or tried it w/out the honey?? I know your post was a while ago - if you do happen to see it, I'd love to hear your response! Thanks again!

EC: Yes, bs stands for baking soda.

Raw, unpasteurized sauerkraut for sweating - this has helped me tremendously!! I think there must be a relationship between fungus in the body and constant sweating - check this remedy out! I would start with about 1/2 to 1 tsp and work your way up to taking more!

Posted by Hodaya Ben Shachar (Israel) on 04/01/2017

I just want to mention that magnesium is not absorbed very well in the gut. Better to use Magnesium oil rubbed into the skin ( don't wash it off). I buy Magnesium salt or epsom salt and dilute in boiling water to max concentration. You could also use Dead Sea salt ( not internally) or Atlantic sea salt in a pinch( much less magnesium). I general it's better to use natural salt not regular table salt.

Posted by Phillip (Illinois) on 02/14/2017

I realized the reason magnesium doesn't work for some ppl with excessive sweat is because of the type and the amount.

Magnesium citrate is best, capsules not tablets, but tablets will do. Open the capsules don't swallow them whole.

When I take only about 400 mg, nothing happens. Still sweat all day heavily under my arms. When I take 800mg I'm dry all day, but you do have to do it everyday so yeah hope this helps.

I removed coffee & soda on my diet and replaced by organic turmeric sliced and boiled with 1/16 teaspoon of black pepper.and prior to that, I've done colon cleansing using a colon detox product and epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) as laxative. My general hyperhidrosis has decreased by 50-60%.

Dear Dean,

I like Lugol's iodine or Iodoral. It is usually best to start with the lowest dose and increase if you need to.

A kelp supplement would also supply iodine, though not as much.

Have had super sweaty arm pits, feet, hands starting in the morning w/coffee for years. Just started drinking a glass of WATER - BEFORE coffee. MAJOR help. Sweating has significantly calmed down. I have been doing a couple other things as well, but don't suppose they are related as the sweating calmed only after drinking the water. I'm very happy about it. I hope this will help someone.

I would like to say that this works wonders! I had the ETS surgery in 2005 and since then had compensatory sweating everywhere that could possibly sweat other than my hands and underarms. I saw a huge difference 2 weeks after using this! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I was able to enjoy Miami with no problems!!! Won't he do it! I bought Trader Joes's organic raw honey and Hines Organic raw with mother Apple cider vinegar! It is definitely worth a try...less than $10!!! I hope this helps someone!

I have suffered from hyperhidrosis for 35+years. Nothing helped and I tried everything. I experienced my first panic attack one month ago. After researching found out about magnesium citrate. I will make it simple. I take 1200mg of magnesium citrate (400 mg 3x a day).

I also take calcium 1000mg (500 mg 2x a day) And I also take a vitamin b complex once a day. You have to build up your tolerance for magnesium so start with 400mg per day and work your way up. For me this worked. Do your research. Magnesium deficiency and hyperhidrosis go hand in hand.

Posted by Ruth (Ontario, Ca) on 03/22/2016

I haven't tried this myself yet, but I've read a lot of comments online about people using milk of magnesia on their skin. I think it's mostly as a deodorant, but might be good to control sweating too. Might be good for people concerned about diarrhea from too much magnesium. Dollar General, Kroger and a few other brands carry pure milk of magnesia. Be careful of other brands as they have additives you don't need like bleach and other things. It's just plain old Magnesium hydroxide and purified water.

Sweaty Feet
Posted by Maryjane (Ny) on 11/26/2015

I too have suffered most of my life from hyperhidrosis. Although this site promotes natural cures, my relief came from Botox injections. My dermatologist administers them in his office. The treatment lasts about 3 months. It can be injected into the hands, feet or underarms. I get the shots in my hands as does my son who also suffers from this condition. It has changed my life. I can't stress that enough. My insurance company covers the treatment. I also tried the other remedies like your son did, but they did not work for me. I suffered for many years but watching my 20 year old son suffer led me to find this treatment. Good luck and let me know if you need more information.

Doesn't the coconut oil make you feel greasy? My son has severe hyperhidrosis. When he was a little kid the sweat would actually run down his hands. Now it is mostly his armpits. Doctors first tried CertainDri, then some machine that had an electrical pulse that was supposed to zap the sweat gland in his hands which, as a 9 year old kid, he hated.

Now that he is 28 it has really affected his life because he has to carry around a sweat rag for his armpits plus wears a super absorbent t-shirt under his dress shirt for work. And we live in SW Florida where it is hot and humid at least 8 months out of the year.

Please advise about the coconut oil and the magnesium. I have read on here that magnesium can cause diarrhea, he already has issues with that now from something that hasn't been determined yet.

Posted by Nesty (Australia) on 09/19/2015

Ft - I too have suffered from excessive sweating for over 35 years. I researched and researched and read many articles to find a cure, started using Magnesium Chloride transdermally which worked wonders not just for sweating but many other problems as well. As soon as I stopped using Magnesium for a few days, I started to sweat again.

I continued to research more and more until I found the real cure for excessive sweating - Hemp Oil. It has been 2 weeks since I started using this oil and the results have been outstanding. I work in a hot climate and it is such a relief to finish work each day not covered in a lather of sweat. It also has many other benefits as well, too many to name here. Research it for yourself, I hope this helps.

For years I was plagued with excessive sweating and oily skin, especially facially, which doesn't work for a lady. I spent 100s of dollars on all kinds of toners, matifiers and mineral makeup and such to no avail. Had to resort to blotting my face of excess oil frequently. Recently I started to take oral Mg in addition to Mg spray that I was already on for fibromyalgia type body aches and recurrent tendinoses. Surprisingly enough, my excessive sweating and oily face seems to have gone poof too, along with a plethora of health issues that had me partially disabled. Who knew? It's a yay for me.

Black Tea Soak

A few months ago my feet started sweating excessively, whether hot or cold, when wearing shoes. It didn't smell that bad but the wetness was very uncomfortable.

I read somewhere about a black tea soak remedy and it worked.

Brew strong black tea (cheap stuff you make iced tea from is fine) and when it's cool enough soak your feet in it for 30 minutes. I did this once a day for 10 days and my sweating pretty much went away. After about 2 months the sweating started again, so I just started soaking my feet again, and it's already getting better after 4 or 5 days of soaking.

Castor Oil
Posted by Jag (Orlando Florida) on 05/22/2015

I had a sympothetomy about 20 years ago. I would not suggest anyone getting it. You solve a problem and create another. Yes, your heart rate does slow a bit, but it does not make you struggle to be physically activity. I am extremely physically active. That is total misinformation. If anything, it's the only benefit you receive from the procedure, a slightly slower heart rate is a good thing. Also, I see people talking about non-acidic Apple Cider Vinegar, there is no such thing. These kinds of misinformations really confuse people looking for a remedy. I've found, a good brand sage tea, just before leaving to an event and powdered magnesium has helped my compensatory sweating.

Had persistent underarm sweat for a couple months - I'd change my shirt a couple times a day. Coffee made it much worse. Started taking Magnesium (500MG, Magnesium Oxide from a generic manufacturer). I'm not bone dry, but it's a lot better.

I suddenly developed severly smelly underarm sweat. The smell would reoccur even while I was in the shower. The smell was "hormony" and could fill a room, and was not helped by deodorant, salt crystals or vinegar.

In desperation I dabbed a small amount of reconstituted lemon juice and it worked wonders. Smell gone, even from the clothes that seemed to reactivate the odour on contact.

Initially I had to put it on three times a day, but within a week once a day is enough. I cannot wait to see what real lemon will do for the problem.

I now dab and then pat a little drop in all parts of the body that develop odours.. "the crack", under breasts and groin.

I have been informed that to just be careful that a rash does not develop due to the acid mantel of the skin being disrupted. Three weeks in, I had no rashes and no odour.

Dear Helen,

That would be a very uncomfortable problem...and to have suffered with it for so long!

I see that you have tried many things...I wonder if you have tried magnesium supplements? A couple of people have posted about that remedy here at EC. A lack of magnesium can cause all kinds of imbalances...I like to use Natural Calm before bed and it is a great source of magnesium. Some like to use Magnesium Oil...if you try it, give it a week or two to see if it will help.

The other thing I would consider is iodine. Iodine is another nutrient that is often lacking in our diets and that lack can cause so many health issues. Here is a link to Bill's great article on iodine.


I hope that you will find relief soon. Please let us know how it goes.

Hi! I am searching for info about Diatomaceous earth, and find it difficult..

I read that it is very fine structured and should not be inhalated.. My question: is the Diatomaceous earth also clogging skin pores? I am asking because I am making my own deodorant, and want to use Diatomaceous earth, but not if it is clogging sweat glands like antiperspirant does.. sweating is healthy! The odor is the thing I want to get rid of!

Thank you so much, I hope you will find tie to answer this :) Amina

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Jenn (Vancouver. Bc) on 03/15/2014

I've had hyperhydrosis since puberty and it has seriously impacted my life in a negative way. I have been willing to try anything to lessen the embarrassing, ever prevalent drops of sweat pouring out of my body. I tried ACV, just a couple teaspoons in warm water with honey, and just once. A chain of events began from there, starting with severe constipation for 6 days. I won't go in to how this eventually led to problems with my period, but the end result was that I stopped taking the pill as a precaution. Since about 3 months after I'd stopped taking birth control pills, I also stopped sweating excessively; It's been 7 months of normal, situational appropriate sweating only!!! Before this, there wasn't one single day of my adult life where I wasn't constantly wiping sweat from my face, even when sitting still. No more night sweats either! My body smells different, like when I was younger; I got my libido back; and I no longer have issues with vaginal dryness. All that and I get to avoid the unacceptably high increase in risk of stroke!

After begging multiple doctors for close to 20 years for some solution, they all acted like it was an obvious and logical result of hormone changes. Then why on earth did they never once bring up hormones, the pill, or any other useful info?

Warning to people with highly sensitive bodies; Apple Cider Vinegar taken only once in a small dose put me in a considerable amount of pain and discomfort. I'm not saying it will do that to you, just thought I should let people on this site know as it's pretty easy to start to hope ACV is gonna fix you based on what you read. Good luck to all!

Posted by Sirena (San Diego, Ca) on 01/30/2014

After trying a few different things to no avail I tried taking supplements to decrease stress and that stopped the excessive sweating for me.

**I should note I only had "periods" on & off of heavy sweating (meaning it would happen for a few days to weeks and then get under control for a while before starting again). The random heavy sweating sometimes happened even when I was not doing anything to work up a sweat.

Posted by Paxeco (Stockholm, Sweden) on 01/16/2014

I've been reading the information on this page and I feel really excited and hopeful that I will overcome this desease that has been with me for all my life. I have hyperhidrosis in all over my body. I will try soon magnesium citrate and pray for this to work out. It would be good if people kept updating their situation here after trying magnesium or any other thing, since I noticed that it's been a while since someone posted here.

Greg: Browsing thru skin care products I found Argan Oil and Ceramides to be promising for topical application. You may want to check the skin care section at your local health food store for a lotion w/ many nutrients. Dietary consumption of omega 3 fatty acids like flax, krill, fish, and walnut oil will help.

Also, there may be in your area a naturopath or homeopath or chiropractor that may help.

Greg: As for the Ionic Trace Minerals whatever you find affordable. I use tablets orally and the liquid in a bath; but do also supplement the amino acid Taurine to further aid in bringing those minerals thru the cell walls.

To help prevent the damage and bleeding of the skin I would recommend a Carotinoid complex as well as full spectrum Vit-E.

Lecithin is bipolar (hydrolipic/hydrophilic) molecule which is ideal for delivering nutrients throughout the body achieved most notably thru Liposomal Encapsulation Technoloy (LET). This method will delver nutrition throughout the body directly to the cells independent of your severed nervous system.

I hope this info helps; do update so as to bring some validation. Stay positive and continue to find anything to alleviate the bad side effects and regain some semblance or normalcy.

Thanks so very much for the reply. I have tried MSM/DMSO and I was wondering about the Ionic Trace Mineral supplement you mentioned? Which one? And how would the lecithin help? Thank you again. I need all the help I can get!

Greg: Thanx for the "warning", maybe it will help anyone reading it. The medical problem is not just the isolated incident you posted, but a general "one size fits all" business model w/ plenty of political and financial backup. And if you're like me and have the wisdom to not submit to radical, irreversible treatments and procedures, and say "no", you get blacklisted and shunned by many in the med community for yrs or the remainder of your life.

I feel somewhat confident that you may find a good deal of relief from natural cures if you persist. CoQ10 & L-Carnitine will help w/ the heart. As for the dry parts that got slashed, does any kind of moisturizer lotion help? Let me pitch you a path to search. One method of providing oxygen to the cancer cells (because the aerobic metabolic pathway isn't able to deliver the O2) is supplementing MSM/DMSO as these natural compounds oxygenate at the cellular level. Well, same principle may work w/ hydration. A complete Ionic Trace Mineral supplement will prove beneficial for stimulating electrolyte production. Lecithin may also help as it is both a fat & water soluble nutrient; may work well w/ ionized water.
