*I wanted to add the warning from my original message that you should NOT take too many beatin HCL pills right away. Instead, you should GRADUALLY increase the dose. Also, it can be dangerous for some people to take it (if you have an ulcer, etc.), so make sure it's safe for you before starting. If you feel too much burning or heaviness in your chest or stomach, swallowing baking soda with water can help.* I just want to thank you for sharing this approach! I may not always do the same amounts of supplements as you, but I'm basically doing what you recommended and I'm already noticing a big reduction in Body Odor and its only my 2nd or 3rd week trying this! At first, I had an increase in Body Odor when I was taking 8-9 beatin hcl pills and wasn't great about taking psyllium husk, but now I'm taking 1-2 per meal, along with psyllium husk daily (I try to take vitamins and digestive enzymes too when I remember) and its amazing how well it works! I've also found it helpful to not drink too much liquid during a meal. This doesn't really apply to guys, but I've also used 'summers eve' cleansing cloths to balance the PH of my skin also (I've heard its not good to do this too frequently, so I don't plan on using these cloths for too long). Anyway, thank you sooo much for sharing your story and recommendations!! Unfortunately, a lot of people have different issues on here, but for me its literally making every aspect of my life better!
