Is body odor a sign of serious problem?

Posted by sally on January 16, 2001 at 20:26:04:

My husband suffers from body odor, including halotosis. He seems to be unaware of the problem. Even his semen has a very putrid odor and this is having a significant effect on our sex life. Worst of all I am worried that this might be a sign of some other serious health problem. Should I be worried? Should he be taking acidopholis?...chlorophyll? Any advice would be appreciated!!

This sounds like someone who may be laden with overgrowths. Helicobactor pylori bacterium can cause bad breath. Stool odors indicate Protozoan parasites. A toxic wast-dump-like odor often means Protozoans. A smell like a stuffy, old room may mean fungus. Once one gets these overgrowths, the gastrointestinal tract becomes very permeable so undigested matter enters the blood and triggers allergic reactions and yes, it can get into the sperm.
So this sounds like a very allergic individual with overgrowths of critters.



Send him to see both a regular doctor and a naturopath

Yes, bad odor is not a sign of good health.

I feel that the Naturopath would be much better at finding out the root of the problem. It "may" be one of the multiple problems that Steve has suggested. But where do you start? Please consult a professional.

In addition, a "regular" doctor should be seen (unless you can find a holistic MD) who can rule out other major problems that would show in blood work, etc. And its usually covered by your health plan.

(I assume he is eating whole, natural foods, gets exercise and follows a wellness lifestyle. That is usually all that it takes to maintain good health. He will need extra help at first.)

A brother who had been through a near-fatal car accident later got a job in a nursing home. The nursing home administrator asked me to have my brother bathe daily (which he was already doing), and to have him use a special deoderant (which I had already bought for my brother at his own request, and which he was already using). It was an embarrassing and potentially hurtful situation. Then in my health research I came across an article, "Think Zinc; Don't Stink", about how foot and body odors might be helped by adding zinc supplements to the daily routine. I bought 10 mg zinc tablets, my brother took one a day, and the problem was resolved within an extremely short time. Serendipity, perhaps, but in my brother's case it was the answer.

Hi, Sally.

There are only 4 ways for the body to detoxify itself: sweat, breath, urine and stool.

Any person who has severe LGS will leak feces back into the blood stream and the body has to excrete it through breath and sweat. It is also likely that the LGS has caused his iliocecal valve to leak colon contents back into the small bowel since that would greatly aggravate what you are experiencing. The chlorophyll would help THAT. Also, A Chiropractor can teach him how to manipulate the valve closed (Has to be repeated several times a day.)

However , only dealing with the LGS will permanently resolve this. The poor guy not only smells bad but this condition is NOT his fault and IS bad for his future health.

Use the glossary and archives for any unfamiliar terms.

Let us know how he does.

Walt
