DOES SWEAT STINK AND STAIN?
We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.
Have you ever used the expression “sweat like a pig”? Think again. Pigs don’t sweat. Pigs don’t have sweat glands, which explains why they have to wallow in puddles and mud to cool off.
Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they need to, when all they need is one reason why they can.
Humans routinely sweat as a way of eliminating excess heat and maintaining a normal body temperature. The average person has 2.6 million sweat glands distributed over the entire body except for the lips, nipples, and external genitalia.
Creative power, is that receptive attitude of expectancy which makes a mold into which the plastic and as yet undifferentiated substance can flow and take the desired form.
There are two different types of sweat glands, eccrine and apocrine. These glands are different in size and produce different kinds of sweat. Eccrine glands are located all over the body. Apocrine glands are different because they are found mostly in the armpits and groin. They are larger and open into hair follicles.
Though sweat is mostly water, it is the small amount of protein and fatty acids in the apocrine sweat glands that gives armpit sweat that wonderful milky or yellow color. It is also what causes it to stain.
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
Sweat itself is odourless whether it comes from the armpits or other areas of the body.
The funk begins when sweat mixes with bacteria that occur naturally on the surface of the skin. This distinctive odor is called bromhidrosis foul smelling sweat.
The work begins when we believe in prevention rather than cure and regular cleansing sounds armoury for general answers.
Physical strength is measured by what we can carry; spiritual by what we can bear. Many are weak helplessly when bearing other's stingy stinky sweaty odour.
