    I never sweat. if it is hot enough I will get sticky, or will get wet under my boobs, but I have never had sweat trickling down my face like my hubby does. I wonder if this is a bad thing? Much harder to get the toxins out if you don't sweat, I'm thinking

    in fact I've had very little need for deodorants throughout my life. Dont approve of them and never have so I guess I've been lucky. But, maybe not.

    Whether or not this is a bad thing I dont know, but would also be interested in finding out.

    I work a very physical and, sometimes, hot job. I never sweat...I get sticky and my face turns purple...but I never sweat. I wonder if this is bad, too.

    Anyone have an opinion? How could one sweat more when need be? I actually get sick to my stomach I get so overheated.

    ..that sweating is very important.

    For years I could not exert myself. (CFS) I did not sweat at all and it bothered me. I keep feeling this urge to find a way to be able to sweat.

    I recently purchased a portable Far-infrared sauna. Two 1 hour sessions a week. Gross sweat!! Its slimy and sticky at the same time. rinsing out the collection cloth, the water turns an ash grey color.

    My Naturalpath doctor says I have to get this junk out of me before he can begin treating my other issues.(CFS) ect.

    Just one person's opinion,

    I sweat, but not as much as I used to. When I was young, I was always sweating. Now it takes a lot of heat and exertion for me to sweat. And it always starts on my head/hair.

    are supposed to be very good for FM. It is totally different from the moist saunas with the rocks and pouring water on them. The temp doesn't get as hot, and it is a dryer heat. I believe sweating helps get those crappy toxins out. If I could afford one, I'd like to get a infra-red sauna too. I don't know if staying in for 1 hr would work for me, but I think you'd have to build up more slowly. I may be wrong.

    I used to never sweat but since I have fibro I sweat like an old mare.
    Have your thyroid check if you feel that you are not normally sweating. I used to be hypothyroid (borderline) but now have to take hormone replacement for it.

    ... I'm amazed to read about women that don't sweat .. I hate it and it isn't normal sweating .. even just out of the shower, trying to put make-up on and do my hair it simply over takes me .. like my head is under a tap .. I have a fan going in my bedroom ALL the time .. we even have AC and I still SWEAT .. I never turn the heat on in my bedroom and I'm Canadian .. we have WINTER !! .. is there anyone out there that has the same problem .. hypothyroid take syntrhoid .. and the fibro thing as well. Please tell me some one out there is like me too ~

    Guess that says it all! My poor husband comes to bed, and just his body heat on his side of the bed makes me sweat! I have a small fan on my nightstand and turn it on even when it's cold! So tired of sweating.

    Isn't life fun? Look at all the fun experiences we have...

    To sweat of not to sweat...II'll take the first! )-: Sorry it's not that easy.

    I am either hot or cold. I am almost never fine. I am usually hot. I drip down my face and it is miserable.

    I tested high for mercury and have been trying to detox for over a year. I read somewhere that we don't sweat because we have so many toxins.

    Anyway, after using the sauna for a while, I have started to sweat big time!! The infrared is different; it is supposed to be a drier heat, it penetrates better and you can get a therapeutic effect with a lower temp. You are right Raz, you need to build up the time. I started with just 10 min.

    There is alot about this in Sherry Rogers book Detoxify or Die. ( great title!!)

    I used to didn't sweat either. Now I know why. My metabolism
    wasn't working. Now that I take 3 grs armour thyroid I sweat and don't get that feeling of heat exhaustion.

    Like a pig. Niagra Falls. Both at once and then some. And I'm not even going to try to be delicate about it. It's awful.

    I did not used to sweat a couple of years ago. I also did not drink much water back then. Dehydrated and working 12 hour days in a factory (very fast work) I'm sure its a big part of my EBV went acute on me. Live and learn :)
