So for a few years I have been struggling with body odour, I have tried many different natural deodorants. I wouldn't want to use anything like anti-per-spirant though. I made a deodorant with 30 drops of tea tree and baking soda. It sort of helped but wore off and i smelt bad again. Then I added approx 30mg of iodine, I spray it on in the morning and this is the only thing that really helps if i apply 2-3 times a day.
I am chelating heavy metals with DMSA and ALA, heavy metal toxicity diagnosed via hair and urine analysis. Have been chelating for around a year. Still getting detox reactions from the DMSA and ALA. After a round of those two things my Body Odor gets really bad an no kind of deodorant helps!
I also have been supplementing Iodine 150mg for about 4 weeks and have notice that Iodine does help to diminish the smell but it also make it worse at times. The Iodine gave me diarrhea and intestinal pains and aches, and foul gas and stools for two weeks or so. I took 1 TBS of bentonite/psyllium 2-3 times a day and the diarrhea soon cleared up but the foul smells continued for a little while longer. Now my stools and gas are pretty normal but get smelly sometimes and I still occasionally get the intestinal pains. I am still taking the Bentonite and psyllium.
I am suffering from bad headaches and fatigue. I have had the digestive stool analysis from metametrix and no candida discovered however there was some kind of bacteria/ parasite there, but they could not name it. My doctor called it a non-human pathogen, but not sure what that means in terms of treatment.
I am currently taking neem seed extract which I get headaches from if i go above 7 drops (quite a small dosage), I am also taking olive leaf extact 500mg (again a clear die off reaction - headaches etc). I was previously taking Black-Walnut /clove/wormwood tincture and got some die off from that to but had to stop as it got too much to handle. Not sure if its a virus or bacteria/ parasites or whatever.....
Maybe the heavy metals are destroying my detoxification ability and just causing things to hang around in the body after they are destroyed rather than being excreted?
