Compared to starvation, rain forrests being chopped down or other big things happeing around us it may seem a bit petty to complain about some sweat. I would agree, unless we are talking about hyperhidrosis which is a condition that can destroy a person life.
Hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating not caused by heat or exercise. Constant sweating will eventually make people isolate and can also destroy entire families. It is thought to be around 3% of the world population who has this condition, but we think this is gravely underestimated due to the stigma it causes.
Cure or treatments
Sadly there is no known cure for this condition. There are however a couple of treatments avilable.
- Botox injections - By injecting botox into sweat glands the sweating can be stopped for a period of time. This treatment is maybe not the best choice considering it must be repeated and botox used during periods can be harmful
- Iontophoresis machine - Using electric current that go through the affected areas of the body has proven to be a long term choice for many. It stops the sweating for long periods of time and is completely pain free.
Iontophoresis machines has been used for decades and using common tap water, or wet electrodes, you can get sweat free fast and for long periods of time. And there is no need for any needles!

Nothing is a beautiful as natural beauty. It goes for everything. Man-made beauty can be amazing, but nature will beat it in every competition. Nature is the best scientist and artist, there is no debating that. However, man is very gifted when it comes to destruction and we are fighting a horrendous battle against our Mother Earth, because of greed. It is our job and responsibility to protect the natural beauty that we have been given in such abundance but instead we do the opposite and we are too stupid to realize what consequenses it will have. We can act small and big, but we must act. Now.
Love the Alps
I spent a weekend in Val Thorens recently, it is a place I have been to many times growing up and for that I love it. Val Thorens might not be the prettiest in the Alps but the skiing is really good there. It is a shame though, that people don't seem to respect the nature in these places. I mean it IS possible to enjoy the slopes, the bars, the restaurants and the vivid nightlife AT THE SAME time as you make sure to not leave garbage behind etc.
I am oing back to the Alps in February, but this time it won't be to Val Thorens because I yearn for both peace and trees and there is not much of either in Val Thorens. Along with skiing I am going to just walk around and enjoy in the beautiful surroundings. I hope my children will have the same possibility...

Everyone should know by know how important it is that we create oxygen through allowing trees and plants to thrive on earth. All the CO2 emissions makes it hard for Mother Nature to breathe, which eventually will make it hard also for us. The CO2 emissions are a massive threat to our survival, but not enough people take it seriously enough. It's so, so sad...
We recently decided to undergo a little bathroom remodeling and, ispired by the Amazon forest, we wanted to create a lush, green atmosphere through plants. I know it's not all that common to work with a whole lot of plats in your bathroom, but if you think about it - where would they like it better?
Our bathroom has big windows to a sunny side so the conditions for plants to thrive in there are perfect. We have standing and hanging plants in every corner and every free space and I get an amazing feeling of harmony whenever I enter the bathroom now. I so wish it was this easy to fix the environment outside of my house.
Great remodeling company
For our bathroom remodeling we chose to hire Kerkinni & Company in Minneapolis and they were great to work with. They totally got our vision about a rainforest bathroom and were really enthusiastic throughout the whole construction process. They were really easy to work with and I can definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to remodel their bathroom in the Minneapolis area.
