  1. I eat what is often called a "GFCF" diet, meaning "gluten free, casein free". These are the proteins in wheat/grains and dairy that cause problems. If you do a search for GFCF there is quite a bit of information out there. The most important thing is to read labels very carefully. For example, I've seen warnings on cans of vegetable soup. Why would that contain wheat... Before continuing, I need to mention that I no longer have hyperhidrosis after switching to that diet. However... I've recently learned that in my case, the root cause for all of these problems is mercury and cadmium toxicity from amalgam dental fillings and root canals. These did not show up on regular blood work, which will only detect an acute exposure. However they did show up on more sensitive tests like hair samples or 24/48 hour urinalysis. It fits because mercury inhibits DPP-IV and other enzymes needed to digest wheat/grains and dairy. Mercury poisoning would also explain the problems I've had with kidney stones, Raynaud's Syndrome, and body temperature. All of those have improved dramatically after changing the diet, but they are still there. I don't know if the same would be true for every person out there with hyperhidrosis. But I began asking and have found some who do have hyperhidrosis and "amalgam" fillings.

  2. I'm finally free from hyperhidrosis. All the information is in the following thread. I'm not repeating information, it just attracts flame posts. Good luck to all. Hyperhidrosis, Food allergies, Gluten ataxia (wheat), Mercury toxicity http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2315&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
  3. Sure http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/celiac/ http://www.leakygut.co.uk/ http://www.doctorfungus.org/mycoses/human/candida/Chronic_Candidiasis.htm It's an autoimmune response triggered by an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains. I dropped all dairy, wheat, and sugars from my diet. In my case it was a test from Enterolab. Some gastroenterologists insist on endoscopy/biopsy, I choose blood and stool tests. The symptoms also matched and I have other family members with the condition. https://www.enterolab.com/Home.htm I take a "Vitamin B Complex" supplement with 50mg of each vitamin, Folic acid, and a mineral supplement with Magnesium. For the first month I also took CoQ10, but haven't taken it since. It's important to make sure the supplements are allergen free. The first brand I tried had shellfish, like many of them do. http://www.nowfoods.com/?action=itemdetail&item_id=2957 http://www.nowfoods.com/?action=itemdetail&item_id=3486
  4. Hi Sure. I posted a lot of information in another thread on this site: http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2315&highlight=mineral Check out this article about hyperhidrosis, grains, and sugars. Scroll about halfway down the page. http://www.mercola.com/2004/aug/14/excessive_sweating.htm I went for food allergy testing and stopped eating the foods which came up as suspected allergens. One of them was caffeine so I stopped all caffeine and sugar consumption. Then I began taking mineral supplements. My brother did the same. A few other symptoms began going away too, and I lost about 20 pounds. I don't know if that would work for everyone with hyperhidrosis, nor would I want to make such a claim. But it's easier and cheaper than prescriptions and surgery, which I've also tried. Doctors say that allergic reactions are just "rashes and hives", but what if hyperhidrosis and Raynaud's are reactions too? If this does work for anyone else, I'd like to spread the word. Even if it doesn't, this is fairly harmless when compared to the other treatments. Celiac disease is an intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat and several other grains. It can weaken intestinal permeability can cause overgrowth of intestinal candida, spreading problems to other systems in the body. These conditions are called Leaky Gut Syndrome and Polysystemic Candidiasis. Many health or dietary issues can lead to those conditions. Celiac disease is just one of them. http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/celiac/ http://www.leakygut.co.uk/ http://www.doctorfungus.org/mycoses/human/candida/Chronic_Candidiasis.htm Each one can cause malabsorption of vitamins and minerals that the body needs, especially B Vitamins, Magnesium, Folic Acid, and Potassium. That is why they whole body is affected, including neurological symptoms. My brother had similar symptoms before being diagnosed. Some of these were due to celiac disease, and some are due to other food allergies and complications resulting from it. - Hyperhidrosis - Raynaud's Syndrome (cold limbs) - Sjogren's Syndrome (dry eyes and discharge in the morning) - Dermatitis Herpetiformis (specific type of skin rash) - Tachycardia (excessive heart rate) - Arrhythmia (irregular rhythm) - Sensory perception issues - Dry eyes, mouth, throat, sinus - Chronic sinusitis - Migraines - Problems with coordination - Irritable, confused - Memory lapses - Dry, itchy skin (where there was no hyperhidrosis, obviously) - Muscle twitching - Bruxism - Acid reflux - Joint pain - Ringing in one ear I stopped consumption of all wheat, dairy, sugar, and caffeine, tap water, flour (which is just bleached wheat), and no more antibiotics. It's tricky because wheat and sugars are a hidden ingredient or filler in many products. High fructose corn syrup is often used by food manufacturers in the states. Anybody can guess that caffeine would make hyperhidrosis worse, but I learned it's possible to be allergic to caffeine I began taking these supplements: - Vitamin B complex Contains 50mg of every B vitamin plus Folic Acid - Mineral complex Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, etc. - CoQ10 These conditions rob the body of ubiquinone
  5. Hmm... I tried klonopin and some other anticholinergics I can't recall. Eventually I went for ETS surgery. No regrets there. The hyperhidrosis slowly started coming back. Years later I was diagnosed with celiac disease. It's a gastrointestinal autoimmune disorder that causes nutrient dificiencies along with some food allergies. I eliminated all foods that I was allergic to, including wheat and gluten, and began taking supplements. I dropped weight, lost some bloating, and stopped taking SSRIs. I have to wonder if hyperhidrosis is just another form of allergic reaction or mineral deficiency? If that's all it is, that could save quite a few people from this condition. Vitamin B complex containing 50mg of each type Magnesium Folic Acid Potassium (comes from veggies anyway)
  6. I had severe hyperhidrosis along with Raynaud's, arhhythmia, rapid heart rate, migraines and muscle twitching. I went through all the regular treatments without luck and finally had the ETS surgery done. It went well and I have no regrets. Years later my hyperhidrosis and other symptoms slowly began creeping back, though not as badly as before. In my case, it was being caused by an undiagnosed gastrointestinal condition called Celiac disease, causing food allergies and mineral deficiency. I've since changed my diet and take supplements for B vitamins, folic acid, magnesium, and other minerals. Seems to be doing the trick. I've also stopped taking Zoloft and haven't touched it in 3 months. I've always insisted that hyperhidrosis must be a symptom of something else, it looks like this may have been the cause.

  10. Hi I had that problem too. I had an arrhythmia and rapid heart rate. A deficiency in magnesium, folic acid, B vitamins or potassium can cause problems with heart rhythm. I went through all the regular treatments without luck before having the ETS surgery done. It went well and I have no regrets. Years later my hyperhidrosis slowly began creeping back, though not as badly as before. In my case, it was being caused by an undiagnosed gastrointestinal condition called Celiac disease, causing food allergies and mineral deficiency.

I've always insisted that hyperhidrosis must be a symptom of something else, this seems to confirm it.
  11. That was one of the earlier treatments I was given. It didn't help much.
