Perspi-Guard Sensitive Review – Honest and Unbiased

I ordered this antiperspirant under the assumption that it would act just as well as aluminum based antiperspirant. They say it works the same way as botox treatments and claims to be all natural. Every time I buy a new product like this one, I can only hope it will work for excessive sweating on the hands. This one guarantees to do the job for underarms, but there is no information on the hands. I was willing to try anything that wasn’t aluminum though and sent away for it. 

The product comes in a little bottle that is a pump. The solution doesn’t have a strong smell, and it feels like it would be perfect for sensitive skin. I began putting it on my hands and my armpits. After a few days I realized very quickly that I was going to run out soon if I continued to put it on both my hands and underarms. I felt disappointed since, if it did end up working, it would be an expensive investment from here on out. I decided it was more important to see what it did for my hands, so I stopped putting it on my underarms. I saw no improvement in that area anyways, although I believe if I had continued for a few more weeks it might have made a difference. An expensive difference, but nevertheless a difference. 

I continued to put it on my hands, and even after 3 weeks I didn’t notice a difference whatsoever with my hands. They continued to sweat very badly. I don’t know if the pores in my hands are just too small to accept whatever particles are in this serum, but I can tell you right away, it didn’t work for my hands. I could see how it could work for underarms, and perhaps even face (although I do not have facial sweating enough to need to try anything for it). It is gentle and feels okay on the skin. My underarms did swell a little when I applied it for a while, but that could be due to many different things. 

My advice on this product is to avoid at all costs for hand and foot hyperhidrosis. In the case of face and underarms, my experience didn’t go far enough to give adequate information. They say you must try it for 3-4 weeks or more to see a difference. That gets expensive, and unfortunately for me it didn’t work for my hands. My guess is that it wouldn’t have work for severe hyperhidrosis of the underarms, but might be a good option for those with a little extra sweat. 

And that’s my two cents on Perspi-Guard Sensitive!

SweatBlock Review – Honest and Unbiased

So, normally I wouldn’t write about antiperspirants with any aluminum based ingredients because I am pretty anti-aluminum. It has been said to cause arthritis and other severe problems in later life with prolonged use, and the high levels of aluminum in clinical strength antiperspirants will cause even worse side effects in the future. I even spent weeks doing a cleanse and getting foot baths to get aluminum out of my system after being tested for high aluminum toxicity levels. Needless to say I felt a whole lot better after that.

And yes, I know I just spent a whole paragraph telling you my negative feelings towards aluminum, but I feel like people don’t say these things straight out. We’re all about immediate results and satisfaction in this society that we don’t think about future consequences. Do your research, and don’t let feeling desperate make you forget the facts. Because that’s what I did when I bought SweatBlock.

It was about a year ago, I was feeling very desperate because I met a handsome young man who not only was into me, but I really liked him back. I wanted to be with him and I was too scared to tell him that my hands were sweaty. So I broke down and ordered SweatBlock. I said in my mind, “I’d rather have arthritis and aluminum poisoning and live my life now.”

It came in the mail quickly, and I opened one of the packets. The towelette had a strong smell that made me even more hesitant to put it on my skin. And after all the time I spent clearing my body of aluminum, I felt like I was betraying my body. A little dramatic? Maybe.

I wiped the towelette on my hands and went to sleep. After about a week of doing the same thing, my hands felt tight and uncomfortable. I suppose that happened the last time I used clinical strength aluminum based antiperspirant. I don’t know why I was expecting something different this time. My hands hurt, and there just weren’t enough towelettes to cover all my problem areas (hands and underarms) and have it be worth the money.

And besides all that, my hands still sweat just as bad as ever. It made a slight difference on my underarms, but when I saw that it wasn’t working with my hands, I decided to give it up. It just wasn’t worth it. I’ve never had much success with antiperspirants for my hands… some people can control it that way, but it never worked for me. SweatBlock definitely did NOT make a difference in the least for me.

I’ve heard from others that SweatBlock is fantastic for underarm Hyperhidrosis (don’t think though that the health concerns don’t apply here too). But as for Palmar and Plantar Hyperhidrosis, it’s been said to be less than successful.

Hopefully this is at least a bit informative,

EFT for Hyperhidrosis Review

I don’t think anyone has ever written a review on the success of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) on Hyperhidrosis. For anyone who hasn’t heard of EFT, it’s basically tapping acupressure points while saying words to release buried emotions. A lot of times illness can be caused by negative emotions in the body and mind. I know it sounds weird, but I believe it now from all of my study into the matter. This is why many people who have been abused often put on weight as a subconscious protection against perpetrators. 

In all of my vast study on the cause of Hyperhidrosis, there is one thing that I’ve found to be ultimately true. And most Hyperhidrosis sufferers know this to be true in the back of their minds. Hyperhidrosis is almost always caused by STRESS. Finding the cause of that stress is what is difficult. However you can decrease the amount you sweat by eliminating things that cause stress in the body. 

This is where EFT comes in. Emotional Freedom Technique was developed to help people work through and release emotions and beliefs that are keeping them from being well. You can use this technique anywhere from learning to let go and decrease stress in the present, to working through anger, embarrassment and shame from your past. People have used it on binging and over-eating problems and have found amazing success. So why not Hyperhidrosis? You might have to face it from a different angle, but I think it could be an amazing tool.

We don’t recognize the need for emotional wellness as well as physical. Taking time to release those emotional burdens help you breath easier, and puts your body in a state of healing. I happen to know of a young man who’s sweating disappeared completely from using EFT. In his case, his sweating is was caused by emotional stress. Of course, if there are physical aspects as well you are not taking care of, EFT is only going to help as much as emotional wellness will allow. But remember, if your body is not absorbing nutrients even though you are consuming them, that could be from an emotional belief that you are not worthy to be well and to take in good things (or anything else, for that matter). Sounds a little complicated, I know. But never forget your body’s internal need to release cancerous emotions bottled up inside. EFT is a fast and efficient way to lessen the emotional stress that may be causing physical stress and therefore sweat. 

I have personally found other programs and techniques that work just as well, so I use them too. But EFT is easy, you can learn it easily on the internet, and you can do it without a trained professional. Just remember though, getting sessions with a professional can help in finding out what your core beliefs are and how to release them. One woman worked with an EFT specialist and went from being sick all the time (from allergies and illness) to having absolutely no reactions and feeling perfectly fine. If you get the right specialist, they will also mention things you can do for yourself physically, and help you release any blocks you have from receiving physical support from supplements or even food, or even an adversity to healthy food! 

Now for my experience with it. I have used EFT off and on for around 10 years now. It has been a lifesaver in so many ways. I use it before speaking in front of large groups of people, and it eliminates my fears and anxieties almost instantly. I have used it before going into mouth surgery and my phobia of needles in the mouth, finding that my fear went from being a ten to a zero in less than ten minutes and had the surgeon remark that he had never seen someone so calm in his life. I have used it any time I am uncomfortable, or don’t believe in myself. You can feel it instantly calm you, putting you in a better state of being. It has only aided in decreasing the amount I sweat, but it’s a lifesaver in terms of a quick fix for anxiety. I remember having to go to an art show last spring, and I was TERRIFIED because I knew people were going to want to shake my hands, or that I would blush. I did about ten rounds of EFT on my different fears and anxiety, my body completely relaxed and I had a wonderful time. I still did sweat a little, but not as much as I had expected and I was able to get through the night without a problem. 

Over time and if you work consistently (most especially with a trained specialist), EFT WILL work to break down any emotional barriers that are holding you back from becoming completely well. It can help you heal more quickly physically, and can aid in any steps you are taking to get your life back. There are so many tools in the world to heal and bring us back to a state of wellness, we just need to be aware of them and find out what works for us individually.

Hushed Sea Tea Review – Honest and Unbiased

Alright. I know that this blog was created mostly for the review of the ebook “Sweat Miracle”, but I figure, mine as well share my experience with the things that I’ve tried to help my hyperhidrosis, right?

Unfortunately I feel that in doing that, I’m going to be writing some negative reviews since most of the things I’ve tried have not worked. I guess that’s how I can review so many products. So it’s not all bad.

Now for Hushed Sea Tea. Let me see… I bought this about two years ago. My sweating was very bad and I found some information on the internet of people having tried this. I wanted something natural (you’ll notice most of these reviews are of natural products on the market) because I believe that not only do doctors not KNOW anything about hyperhidrosis or it’s cause, but they treat the symptom instead of the cause with medication, botox, iontophoresis and whatever else causes side effects.

Unfortunately for me, Hushed Sea Tea, as natural as it is, did have some side effects. It just so happens that sage, the main ingredient of HST, caused some water retention. I gained 10lbs around my middle from taking that every day. And when I stopped and did a cleanse, it all came off. Besides that, I saw absolutely NO reduction in sweat. Whatsoever. I’ve never heard of this happening and sage is not necessarily known to cause water retention (that I’ve read), but that was my experience.

And this really is simply my experience. My suggestion for you, if you are considering purchasing the tea, would be to take sage by itself for a little while to see what kind of a reaction you have and how much sage itself helps with your sweating situation before sending off for it. And measure too how much your sweating is caused by anxiety. From what I remember, the other ingredients in HST are natural herbs to help anxiety.

It’s a clever mix of herbs… An astringent and natural anxiety-reducers. Makes sense, that’s why I bought it. Unfortunately it did not work for me. My opinion is that this is, again, a temporary fix. And sage will only partially help if anything. I’ve also heard of this working for people and then wearing off after a couple of months. If anyone else has had any good or bad experiences with Hushed Sea Tea, we would all love to see your experience in the comments! I feel that my experience alone may not be enough to base a decision to purchase off of.

Eredicane Review – Honest and Unbiased

First of all, I’m not trying to sell you anything. I’ll put that out there right now. I suffer from both Hyperhidrosis and Chronic Blushing. I finally came across something called Eredicane, after searching for what seemed like ever to find something to help the blushing.

Now, I have to admit I haven’t really tried Eredicane. I spent about two days worth of time on the internet trying to find something cheaper. And, to my delight, I found another product online that has the EXACT same ingredients, in the same order. It’s called “Asian Flush Formula”. It was created for people of Asian decent that suffer from something called Asian Flush (blushing after drinking alcohol). But, if it’s no different from Eredicane in ingredients, then why not try this much cheaper supplement to help my own blushing? (I am Caucasian, by the way).

Well, I ordered it. It was around $60 for a three month supply while Eredicane is about $90 for a two month supply. I’d say that’s around half the price of Eredicane! Anyways, I began taking AFF a couple of months ago, and it has seemed to help quite a bit. Maybe not as much as I was hoping (I still blush often, especially if I’m nervous), but it doesn’t seem as chronic and I’m definitely not hiding my face all the time! It has also helped my sweating.

I think though, that combining AFF with 5-htp (since AFF didn’t help the anxiety), I have been able to be put on the spot in meetings, etc, without too much of a reaction. I have much more confidence and I feel better overall! Those two combined are sure to help at least a little for any heat related symptoms, even sweating! I forgot to take them both one morning and found my whole body a little damp and my hands were soaked. I think I’ll continue taking them for sure…

Now, you can decide if I’m being dishonest here by saying I’m reviewing Eradicane when I’ve only tried Asian Flush Formula. But I wanted to let people out there who have thought of buying Eredicane but found it highly expensive that there is another option. A cheaper option, which is slightly less of a blow to your wallet–especially if it doesn’t work!

Just know that this is a temporary fix, definitely not meant to cure you of any illness. Hope this helps…

Leya S.

UPDATE: Looks like they’ve raised the price of the 3 month supply to $90. That’s unfortunate. Oh well, it’s still cheaper than Eredicane by far!

Sweaty Palms Program Review – Honest and Unbiased

I purchased this ebook under the impression I got from the description that it was a completely natural program. Because the author explained that it was 100% natural and targeted the internal, external and mental causes of hyperhidrosis, I was sold. I thought, this might actually work for me!

If there is one program I would recommend NOT getting, it’s this one. I’m just going to say right now, ALL of the information you get in this ebook is already available on the internet and you can find it EASILY. Number one, I don’t know how much I can say about the ebook without infringing on copyrights, but just check out this video on youtube which will tell you everything you need to know-  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_wdHKRWZI4

Watch the video and tell me that a homemade iontophoresis machine is 100% natural. You are welcome to try it, but before I ever bought the ebook I already had tried it. And I threw away all the parts to it and then promised myself I would NEVER do that to myself again. If you want to try it, yes- it works pretty well in most cases. No, its not good for you and it will probably cause internal problems unrelated and related to hyperhidrosis. It did for me. I have a heart problem known as rapid heartbeat and tachycardia. My heart got consistently worse when I was sending electric currents through my body to cure my sweaty palms. My sweating in other areas got worse, and truthfully, I wasn’t seeing enough of a difference in my hands after 3 weeks of torture to be worth it.

The last thing I have to say about this program is that the rest of information in the ebook has been derived from other ebooks on the same subject. And it is pretty useless towards curing your sweaty palms. Basically the author is taking free information that is available to you on the internet, and trying to sell it to you. And that youtube video I just gave you, has all the information you need to be just as successful WITHOUT spending the $30 to buy the ebook.

On the upside, they are very good about giving you a refund if you are not satisfied! They have good customer service and are quick to reply to your questions.

I am just another hyperhidrosis sufferer honestly seeking answers to my problem. I have been able to help it and it has gotten MUCH better since I have applied principles I haven’t learned on the internet.

Sweat Miracle Review – Honest and Unbiased

I am so sick of all those reviews that people put out there because they are in the affiliate program and trying to sell me the ebook. I am a hyperhidrosis sufferer, and I have tried multiple programs to help this. I am about to give you an honest review in which I will tell you everything good and bad about the program Sweat Miracle, telling you right now I am NOT trying to sell you anything. I am writing this so that other hyperhidrosis sufferers will not get pulled into something they haven’t been able to find adequate information on.

First off, I am a little sorry I spent my money on this program (Sweat Miracle). There may be a couple of things that are new to me, but pretty much everything in the ebook I have already studied and tried. I decided not to ask for a refund, because it was valuable information of which some could maybe help me. The author of this product has definitely done some research on the subject, is very helpful and understanding, and is willing to help you with any difficulty you may have. In fact he is there to answer an email right away if you send one, whether or not you have purchased the program. You have to remember when purchasing this program that it is written by a nutritionist who has suffered from hyperhidrosis. He has no higher education than that of a nutritionist so, while he has studied and found some good information, he may not have had adequate schooling or done adequate research to know how to cure every hyperhidrosis case. While he has helped others overcome the problem, and has himself overcome the problem, the things listed in the book (I can already say) will not work for everyone.

To get started: The description claims that this is an easy 5 step plan, however I found that the ebook was incredibly vague and unorganized. Each step has too many options, and too little description on each. There are lists and lists of supplements that “might” help you, no mind to how much it will cost to do your own research on which of these will work in your particular case. He lists herbs that supplement certain aspects of hyperhidrosis, but once again is vague. Even then, much of the information in the ebook is basic hyperhidrosis knowledge that is readily available on the internet. And much of the rest is compiled from research from other online ebooks you can purchase on the same subject. All of this information has been circulating for some time now that it will show up in almost any ebook you buy on hyperhidrosis. Besides all this, the author talks about cleansing and fasting, which, yes, is a very good start to any health program, but again, information on this is readily available on the internet. Anyways, in my opinion, there are better cleansing and fast options that those listed in the ebook.

I also found some inconsistencies in the book, saying one thing should be avoided, but then goes on to say it is a good supplement for the problem. I found it hard to follow the steps because they were so vague, inconsistent and repetitive. There is no possible way to rewrite these steps in an organized and simple fashion because there is so much information that is so little explained.  The diet plan is good, explaining which foods provide you with what nutrients and what to avoid. It is a good compilation, but there was no explanation for why you must avoid certain foods and again some vague explanations on why you should eat certain foods. I feel that this ebook is a good start for people who need to step out of an unhealthy lifestyle, but I wonder if I am just a strange case having already been living a healthy lifestyle (with tons of cleansing and fasting and listening carefully to what my body needs) before hand with no results, having taken thousands of supplements for years, with no results. And also having been on an exercise program exercising 5-6 days a week for 3 months with no results. The supplements listed in this ebook may be very well legit, and I will be trying some of them as I get the money to buy them. I will even hopefully post updates on things that I try that seem to help.

The ebook also mentions iontophoresis for extreme and incurable cases, which I am totally and completely against. It is not part of the program in the ebook, it is simply mentioned and explained. Iontophoresis in my opinion makes hyperhidrosis worse because it causes the nervous system and heart to become even more stressed out. It also causes problems to other organs in the body and makes it harder to heal internal imbalances.

So, to sum it up, I will simply say it is a good compilation of basic information. Most of the information you can get by simply surfing the net, while there are a few pieces of good information probably unavailable elsewhere. The question is, are these few pieces worth $40? In my case, probably not. I hope I have answered any of your daunting questions about Sweat Miracle. If you have any questions, let me know.
