Ailment: Body odour
Remedy: Lemon juice
Mix a teaspoon, or a few teaspoons of fresh lemon juice in a glass of water, and drink it 20 minutes before a meal, or at any time. It helps with the digestion of food (good to take before a meal) and a wide range of digestive problems, and contributes to general health and longevity.
You can also use lemon juice on your skin. The acidity is beneficial, promoting acidic bacteria and inhibiting fungi. The acidity also inhibits demodex mites living in hair follicles and oil glands. Almost every adult has these mites, but in some people their population gets out of control, or their skin reacts to the mites.
Visitors personal experiences with Lemon juice

Spray or rub a handful of apple cider vinegar around the armpit, and anywhere else there is a bacterial or fungal smell. Use strong, neat, raw apple cider vinegar. I found that bacteria were under control from the day I used it. Lemon juice has a similar effect - it is not as strong as ACV, but I find the smell of lemon more pleasant than ACV. After a week (including a cycle of washing towels, clothes, sheets etc) the smelly bacteria were gone.
