Hormonal Imbalance and Body Odor

Suffering from embarrassing body odor can be a sign of imbalances in the body’s system.  Bouts of sweating, heat fluctuations and a smelly body odor does not necessarily mean the person is unhygienic.  In many cases, body odor can be a sign of hormonal imbalance.

Menopause: A Common Cause

Menopause is one of the most common causes of hormonal imbalances.  Menopause upsets the hormone balance in a woman’s body causing shifts in levels of estrogen and progesterone.  During menopause women can experience several health changes including hair loss, headaches, irritability, mood swings, weight gain, depression, fatigue and excessive perspiration.

While the odor is not directly noted as a symptom it can be a result of some of the symptoms that occur in the body during this time.

Women who experience hot flashes and an increased body temperature may find that there is an increase in sweating.  The excessive perspiration may result in body odor.

Other Causes

Aside from menopause, body odor can be caused by a variety of other things.  The types of foods consumed during menopause can also have a direct impact on excessive sweating and body odor.  Women who are already experiencing hormonal imbalances should limit excessive amounts of protein in their diet.  Red meats are notorious for causing body odor due to hormonal imbalances.  If a woman is experiencing imbalance issues due to menopause, caffeinated drinks, garlic, onions and other pungent foods should be avoided. 

Natural Treatment Cures

There are a variety of herbs and vitamins that can be consumed in the treatment of body odor.  Vitamins such as magnesium, zinc, or vitamin B all work well in decreasing body odor.  The dosage should be determined by a doctor who has examined the individual and knows the history of hormone imbalance. 

Herbs are another natural remedy for the treatment of body odor due to imbalance.  Some herbs may be taken by mouth, added to foods, or directly applied to the armpit area to eliminate odors. 

Herbs such as rosemary, licorice, ginseng and coriander contain antibacterial properties that can prevent bacteria growth.  Stopping bacteria growth prevents body odor in localized areas.
