How I Stopped Sweating and Started Living

Jim’s Story

I use to sweat so much that my white t-shirts would last about 1 month before I would have to go out and buy more-they all had huge yellow stains under the armpits. 

I no longer have to buy new t-shirts since I have permanently solved my sweating problem.   I am immensely thankful for that because my gross perspiration drastically affected my life:

 Whether it would be in business meetings, lounging around the house, or on dates, especially on dates, I use to always sweat.  I think I use to sweat more than anybody I know!

 You might be reading this now saying, “Oh no, I sweat worse than you do.”  I do not know if this is possible.  My armpits sweat, sure, but sometimes my feet and my hands become drenched.  I remember feeling lucky because the one place that I did not sweat, unless I was doing athletics, was on my face.  Can you believe I felt fortunate that I did not sweat on my face? 

 Before I solved the problem (see below), I would have to factor my sweating into everything that I did.  For example, everybody tells me that I look great in blue.  “It compliments your eyes so well” people would say.  If you are a person who sweats frequently, you know that any light or royal blue is out.  Your sweat stands out more than Shaquille O’Neil in a room full of children.  Occasionally, I could wear a Navy colored shirt and this would conceal the sweat. 

 Sweat dictated my wardrobe.  Since most colors have the same effect as blue, I was reduced to wearing basic blacks and whites.  I would have to re-buy the whites after I stained them and the blacks usually ended up stained white from all the various deodorants I tried. 

 Seriously, I tried every anti-perspirant known to man:  Degree, Dry Idea, Mitchum, Old Spice, Right Guard, Adidas, Tom’s of Maine.  I even tried this special deodorant from France.  (Maybe I should just move to France, I thought, since they don’t care as much about hygiene.)   Anyway, you name it, I tried it, and I tried it in every form:  spray, roll-on, gel…everything.

 I had pretty much given up.  Nothing Worked!  I would have to factor this sweat nightmare into every life-situation, every event I attended, and romantic moment.  Frankly, it sucked. 

 Fortunately, though I had given up, my girlfriend had not.

How I Permanently Solved My Sweating Problem

 
One night, as I was laying in bed with my girlfriend, she said, “Oh, baby, you’re sweating again.  Why are you sweating right now?”

 I responded:  “Unfortunately, baby, it’s a problem that I have had all my life.  There seems to be no solution.”

 As we laid down to sleep, she had that we’ll see about that look about her.

 She researched the sweat phenomenon endlessly and gave many suggestions.  With each suggestion, I would tell her “baby, I have already tried that.”

 Then one day, about three weeks later, she brought home a book called “Stop Sweating and Start Living.”  Great, I thought, more reading about a problem that I know I cannot solve. 

 But as I started reading, the whole process made sense.  It sounds weird but I began to understand sweat.  I implemented the procedures in the book (which only took about 30 seconds a day) that offered a natural, holistic approach without me having to go buy more expensive, fancy deodorants. 

 Mike Ramsey, the author of the book (and fellow x-sweater), can explain the cure to sweating much better than I can.  Be sure to purchase his book Stop Sweating and Start Living which you can download and begin immediately.  

 About three weeks after I started implementing the procedures in the book, I realized that I had stopped sweating entirely.  I thought it may be temporary or too good to be true so I didn’t mention it to my girlfriend or anybody.  I had gotten pretty good at hiding my sweat problem from everybody but my girlfriend anyway.

 Then, one night, she rolled over into my arms, and she said: “Baby, do you know that you have not sweat in about 1 month?  I think you’re cured of your sweating problem.”

 With that, she rolled over into my arms.  And, once and for all, she did not have to worry about getting herself wet from my sweat.  We had other things to do :)

    Jim, I was kind of at my wit’s end. The last deordorant I tried was men’s speed stick deoderant and I have finally realized that I might be in your sweaty situation(well, not that bad). Anyway, I bought the book and now I’m done with the endless deodorant search. It was good hearing your story and I’m glad it never got THAT bad for me but I’m glad you got rid of it!

    Anyway, thanks for the reference. The book was great and told me what I needed to know, and what changes to make, to stop sweating.

    In an effort to find something that would help me naturally, I tried to make deodorant baking soda. Didn’t work to fully stop my sweating. The recommendations in this book really helped. Thanks a bunch!

  3. Trey Brown Says:

    Jim, I have the exact opposite problem as you. I have perspiration from head only. Will this product work for that? Thanks, Trey

  4. JimC Says:

    Trey, yes, absolutely–it’s not just an armpit thing. It stops sweat all over :)
