Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating on the arms, legs, feet or armpits. Sweating is a normal thing, but have you noticed if you’re sweating excessively during the hot summer days? If this is the case, continue reading to learn the best natural ways to prevent excessive sweating.

Why do we sweat?
Sweating is the body’s way of regulating the internal temperature. When the temperature rises, we begin to sweat in order to get it down. This is why we sweat when we are dressed in warm clothes, go into a heated room, when the body temperature rises during a cold, when we’re exposed to sun or when we are physically active (during exercising, for example).

Sweat is a fluid produced by the sweat glands, which consists of water, minerals, amino acids and urea. We sweat mostly on our face, neck, armpits, hands, feet and legs, where the body has more pores and sweat glands. Sweating helps filter the blood and removes toxins from the body.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is caused by changes in the sympathetic nervous system, which increase the need for over sweating to get the body temperature regulated. The main factors for over sweating are climate changes and the emotional state.

Excessive sweating can be an uncomfortable problem for anyone, especially if it’s accompanied by odor, irritation and fungus infection.
