Meditation for Hyperhidrosis

        Have you tried meditation as a form of alternative hyperhidrosis treatment?
        I have been doing some meditating, following instructions from a book & dvd set that I recently bought, and it feels as if this is helping me to curb excessive sweat.

        While meditation does not stop my sweat glands from overdoing it, it does calm me down: and a relaxed body is less prone to excessive sweat. I think that this is definitely helping me control my hyperhidrosis, but I do not know if it would help everyone.

        Do you have any experience with meditation, and have you tried using it to as a sort of hyperhidrosis treatment? What were the results? Personally, I feel that it helps me breathe more regularly, slower, deeper, that it perhaps calms my heart-rate; and all these things then help me sweat less.

        I tried this approach over the past couple of weeks, and I didn't really notice the difference. Sorry. :/

        For me, meditation did not stop excessive sweat at all, so I can't consider it to be a valid hyperhidrosis treatment. I'm glad to hear it works for you, Elena, but it seems to be an individual thing – either that or I've been doing something wrong. Maybe my hyperhidrosis is different and can't be affected by meditation alone.

        Still, meditation did help me relax at the end of a long day, so it's not like it was a waste of time!

        I have also tried medidation, and like Toby, unfortunatly no results.
        Sadly we all live fast paced lives and often don't have time for things like this anyway.
        I know I certainly don't, but regardless, if it worked, I'd dedicate as much time as it needed to cure my problem.

        Why can't there be a quick and effective solution to our problem?!
        And inexpensive might I add!

        Stop Sweat on #14487

        I never thought meditation can help in controlling the sweat. I do use a stop sweat spray that helps to some extent, but I think I will try meditation now. It also helps to focus and give me a clear mind so I will try doing that. Your post has been very useful. I appreciate what you have shared. Thanks.

        What do you think is the root cause for your problem? I suffer from severe hyperhidrosis as well, and it really sucks me off. I cannot concentrate on studying and doing other things. I suffer from anxiety, depression, name it. I am thinking of trying botox but it is way too expensive for me given my current situation. I would like to know what form of yoga that you practised to overcome the anxiety and sweating? Really appreciate your response.
