Hyperhidrosis and Diet-Induced Thermogenesis
Nutrition does not exert great influence in cases of hyperhidrosis; however, restriction of the so-called thermogenic foods can soften the intensity of the sweating. In addition to diet-induced thermogenesis, there are other factors that can increase heat production, such as stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system and sensory stimuli that integrate cephalic thermogenesis. Thus, it is important to know the mechanisms of energy production in the body in order to guide the hyperhidrosis sufferer in reducing the production of sweat.
