Homeless people, sweaty body odor and alcohol

Everyone once in their lifetime encountered a homeless person which presented itself with a strong sweat like smell.

Most people do relate this to poor hygiene, even if that smelly person does not show outer signs of poor hygiene.

For some homeless people poor hygiene might be a reason, nevertheless from a metabolic point of view there might be an alternative major reason: higher alcohol consumption in combination with lower food intake

If we look at the ethanol degrading pathway, we realize that it compromises the EC 6.2.1.1 in an overload situation pretty similar to the case when people having a primary enzyme deficiency in this enzyme.



As a result it might be that the Clochard Smell Syndrom is caused by an metabolic impact on the EC 6.2.1.1 enzyme and the related butyrate and propionate enzymes.

The fecal body odor smell type

As stated in an earlier post, the most prominent reported smell type for TMAU2 patients was the fecal smell type. But not only TMAU positive patients reported such a type of smell, another body odor sufferer type do show the same fecal body odor pattern. Interestingly nearly all of those non TMAU patients report having Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) as well. We took a closer look into the combined bacterial and human metabolism. The central chemical compound involved in the fecal smell seems to be indole. Indole is produced within the bacterial metabolism as a precursor of tryptophan. As major source the bacteria use glycolysis based on sugar, carbohydrates, ... To let the bacteria produce too much indole we found certain criteria: - Tryptophan absorption of the intestinal cells is lower than the serine and glycine absorption - Histidine malabsorption is present - Tyrosine malabsorption is present Why do TMAU2 patients now show a fecal smell, don't they have a choline and

Bromhidrosis TSH+: Diet protocol + nystatin, nigella sativa + h1 receptor antagonists + medicinal clay improves body odor condition

In our explorative case we were further able to improve the diet protocol as well as finding a new drug/supplement  composition. We are taking advantage of following over the counter drugs/supplements: - Nystatin - Nigella sativa (black cumin) capsules - H1 receptor antagonists (loratadin) - medicinal clay The diet protocol was taken from: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=19hmatFJPil1svc9DRyuRn3S9rUF7yqH_ Dosages (daily) applied were like the following: nystatin: 6x pills (3x at morning, 3x at evening) nigella sativa: >10000mg (5x 400mg capsules before every meal, 5 meals per day) loratadin: 50mg - 100mg daily medicinal clay: 6x 6g (luvos healing earth)
