Customer Question

Recently i noticed i have been having Rotten/offensive smell coming from all over my body/skin for almost 1 years and also this has been confirmed by friends and colleagues at work. I have been to Gp loads and blood tests like Liver,kidney and thyroid has all been checked (see attachment ) but without a significant solution . My symtoms are as follow

2 Also have fiery burning feel like am in the sauna sometime before the smell.
3 Sweaty palm and feet
4 My skin feels thick like there is another layer or there is substance on my skin

HelloThis also is a paresthesia, odd sensations.There are many things your doctor would not normally check.Heavy metal toxicity for one.B vitamin deficiencies, all should be measured.Diabetes, liver and kidney problems are hopefully ruled outl.Parasites. Stool samples should be checked.I suggest you take this list back to your doctor.
