Body Odor

What Causes Body Odor?

Body odor can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'life-threatening'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • check your overall health status
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose body odor, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "body odor" as a symptom.  Here are four possibilities:
  • Mineral Need
  • Liver Congestion
  • General Toxicity
  • Kidney Disease

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
painful urination
excess nose/throat mucus
severe leg cramps caused by walking
refined white flour consumption
cigarette smoke sensitivity
elevated liver enzymes
breast soreness during cycle
hydrochloric acid supplementation
positive results from coffee enemas
allergy to chemicals
ovarian cysts
frequent nighttime urination
... and more than 60 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of body odor:
Cause Probability Status
General Toxicity 90% Confirm
Liver Congestion 12% Unlikely
Mineral Need 2% Ruled out
Kidney Disease 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
