I've always believed body odor (under arms) was caused by bacterial or other microbial growth.  Why would nonnie's smell less?  Don't we nonnies have more bacteria growing on our skin than secretors?
Nonnies smell less because we need extra help in getting rid of the foul-smelling little animacles.

My belief is that nonnies don't provide as much food for those stinky bacteria to eat because their BT antigens aren't secreted in sweat or skin oils.

Quoted from Patty H

Do you think I might begin to smell less when I have been on the diet for a longer time?  I have only been on the diet since mid-October, 2010, so less than a year.  I know many on this forum have been on it for years!  Is not being so smelly is something I can look forward to?  

I think so.

I want to have a deal with them .

Depends on what I've been eating.  If I follow my food recommendations there is little to no BO and my hair is less oily.  I get stinky/oily if I chow down on gluten, dairy, and and/or beef.  (In fact, I just asked my husband to smell my hair this afternoon because I thought it was stinky!)

I'm still a non-stinker since but use my essential oils as a form of prevention

but did you knew that we might be able to smell our futur *good fathers* while choosing our partners ....... this is what I found out also that men might commit terrible errors in using normal over the counter perfumes, insted of true creations for their individual needs as found in essential and oriental oils (which mostly all are organic)

i voted little to none.

the only time i ever had a "really strong" odor problem was when i first switched from anti-perspirant to natural, non-aluminum deodorant. I figured it was a detoxing thing.

since then (and this was probably 20+ years ago now)... i have had only a very few instances where my scent was stronger than normal, although not terribly so. Each time, i had a few ingrown, underarm hairs. Once they were removed, and healing, the scent went away.

I have never understood why someone would ever want to stop such an essential metabolic process as perspiration!

How about a lot of money making companies?   
I well remember the jingle in the late 60's: "don't wait to be told, you need palmolive gold" As kids we used to follow it up with our own version: "don't wait til you stink, you need palmolive pink" Shows how easy it was to indoctrinate society, even at primary school level, as to what is the new norm eh?

I don't use deodorant unless I have a stressfull day ahead of me. Bronners lavender soap seems to linger on my skin all day, so that may suffice. I've asked trusted friends about having BO and the answer is no, so I know it's not just the inability to smell myself. I have a remarkable "palate" for both taste and smell, which creates problems for me sometimes dealing with chemicals, pets, mold and mildew, food smells, and just about any intrusive aromas. I've taken to carrying a small bottle of essential oil to gatherings where there are pets just to tolerate being around them. Yeah, it's weird, but I try to be discreet.

I noticed that I did sweat a LOT more after I stopped using anti-perspirants. In fact, I was literally pouring sweat. A great detox!! After that, it decreased considerably.

I have never had under arm odour and because of this have never had to use deodorant. Even with a nervous underarm sweat which I have had at times, there is no odour.  I am rh negative non secretor. My father was rh neg as well and also had no odour.   This 'condition' is something that has puzzled me for a long time.   When I reached puberty, I was upset because all of my girlfriends got to enter into the "now I am a woman" club and underarm deodorant was part of that.  Of course, I am very happy that I don't need to use it but I have always wondered why.

All types of drinks with caffeine (diet coke included) make me sweat which is very frustrating!

I voted little to none.  

My body odor has diminished to almost nothing.  Only if I am extremely upset or anxious will I notice any aroma.

CLICK


I'm the same, Victoria.  But I use the liquid rock crystals type deodorant once a week after my weekly bath.  Then for the rest of the week I daily wash myself thoroughly but avoid my armpits.  This phenomenon has happened only after following my diet closely and I love it!

Interesting re sweat/body odour... I rarely *smell* except if I have eaten or been exposed to an avoid! Yesterday I used vinegar to clean the toilets (didn't touch it as such) but woke up with my armpits smelling slightly of vinegar...
Neither of us need to use much in the way of deoderant and if my husband eats out, he always omits a general (not unpleasant) body smell of the oils the foods were cooked in and/or the spices he doesn't usually eat!

Possum, is your husband a secretor? I ask because it occured to me the other day that neither my wife or I (both nonnies) smell from garlic, or curry. And we eat copious amounts of garlic.

Oh noooo...

No, these are trusted friends who would speak up. BTW: It's always sautéd, never raw. Good digestion and hygiene plays a big part in this too, I think.

I use plain deoderant, never antiperspirants for a good while.  When i was in high school i used anti perspirants and they made my armpits red and irritated.  

I came to believe even then that its important for me to sweat so i stopped using antiperspirants.  

If i don't wear deo i can go a few days before they smell like mexican food, regardless of what i eat.  It does not smell bad to me!

I guess I'll post an update. I make deodorant strictly from Dollar Store mineral-oil based heavy hand cream (it's a big plastic jar) stirred in with a couple of tablespoons full of baking soda. I chose the mineral oil base because it does not penetrate the skin, and allows the soda to do its odor protection floating on top of the skin. When you rub it in it turns clear, so no telltale signs when wearing a sleeveless dress. When I launder clothes, there seems to be no problem with the cream washing off of the fabric - unlike human oil around the neckline  

Because the baking soda slightly interrupts the composition of the cream, odors do get absorbed into the soda. I have hormonal imbalance but the cream lasts all day when thoroughly applied. Usually when I am cleansing, I wind up with "one stinky armpit", being an Explorer. The armpit on the most sensitive side of the body. Lemon oil, orange oil, basil or lavender essences would be good to customize a fragrance on any given day, and extend protection.

I think the fact that Pears soap has sage oil and botanicals in it plays a great part in staying more fresh if I have to leave in a hurry without a true shower.

Dead skin cell removal is also important for a Nonnie to not get dull, odorific skin.

cute..

I use baking powder under my arms.. even though I get soaking from hotflshes I do not have odors any place else.

I use Backing powder sine I had breast cancer.. should have done that way earlier.. Never gave it much of a thought.. Now I do and it works fine.... I can use a powderpuff for it.. never knew what to do with powder puffs before..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I think antiperspirant deodorants are the worst thing ever foisted off on the public as far as body care products go. I started using rock crystal deodorant a long time ago and sweated like crazy for about a week. It was literally pouring off me when I would be gardening. What a wonderful detox!! After that week I quit sweating as much as I had when I was using the horrible antiperspirant.  I can't help but wonder how much breast cancer that stuff has caused.
