Skin Care Trends for the New Year Include Detoxification for Wellness

January 16th, 2016 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

relaxed girl with moisturized skin MJwxkHPO 150x150 Skin Care Trends for the New Year Include Detoxification for WellnessHeading into the new year, we know that wellness is no longer just a buzz word. Thanks to the Internet and social media global trends are instantly shared across the world. Skin care is no longer a luxury, it is a priority and can also lead to better health.

There are a number of overriding trends in wellness for 2016 including everything from the use of cannabis in beauty treatments to detox skin purging therapies.

According to one *report entitled, a “Green Beauty Barometer” 59 percent of U.S. adult women read beauty product ingredient labels prior to purchase, while nearly 40 percent intend to increase their spend for all-natural beauty products.  Last, 54 percent of the women said all natural skin care products were essential.

Following are some of the trends:                           

K-beauty: There is inspiration from ancient traditions like the Korean beauty market which recently launched “K-beauty.” Koreans are elaborately passionate about skin care.

All natural products: More than half of U.S. women prefer all natural skin care products. As the natural trend in skin care continues to rise, a recent survey has found more U.S. women consumers look at product labels to avoid certain ingredients prior to purchasing.

Forest bathing beauty traditions:  A Japanese concept, forest bathing encourages quiet walks through a forest to meditate the feel and sounds of nature. Medical evidence has proven long-lasting impact of forest bathing on the immune system. 

Detoxification and Skin Purging Therapy: Herbalix has been educating audiences about the benefit of skin detoxification for more than 15 years. Products such as the Women’s 80 Night Lymph Detox Program includes a free 20-minute consultation with each kit ordered. The benefits include ridding the body of toxins, and especially aluminum. You’ll know it’s working when normal detox symptoms appear which are simply indicators that the toxins are transitioning out of your body. 

Islamic mud or sand bathing : The Islamic world has been refining their nature-based healing therapies and beauty practices for centuries. Now they are being shared globally.

Medical cannabis: The legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in many U.S. states has deepened cannabis’ health value into wellness treatments such as incorporating it into massage therapy. Charcoal is another ingredient popular in some skin purification treatments.

Halotherapy: This dry salt therapy has been around for centuries, but the United States has only recently become familiar with its health benefits, including respiratory and skin benefits. It can be used in salt rooms and for dry salt therapy sessions or dry saunas.

TrendWatching says consumers prefer to build their own identities based on their own inclinations rather than fitting into a traditional mold, which ties in nicely to the fact that Herbalix Restoratives offers customized skin care treatments for various skin types. Learn how what you put on your skin really matters. Watch this Herbalix video about how aluminum and alum in deodorants can harm your health.

Organic Personal Care Market Expected at $15.98 Billion by 2020

November 10th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

In a recent article entitled, Organic personal care market likely to post double-digit annual growth to 2020, by Simon Pitman, we learn that “most global regions are expected to post near double-digit annual growth in organic personal care over the next six years,” according to a new market research report. Grand View Research said the global market is slated to grow from approximately $8.20 billion in 2013 to approximately $15.98 billion by the year 2020, showing annual growth rates between nine and 10 percent across Asia, Europe and North America.Grand View Research believes that most of the growth is being driven primarily by increasing consumer awareness of organic products and product innovation.

Herbalix (www.Herbalix.com) is seeing growth in the organics marketeplace as well. In the past, personal care products for body cleansing primarily included  soap, body washes and  scrubs. Today, modern technologies are more scientific such as the company’s skin purging therapies which are of great interest to the medical community.

Of biggest concern are the commercial deodorants/antiperspirants that contain any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol, which can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms. This can often not only result in irritation, but can also cause hygiene problems, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave a residual of alum salts in the underarm, and over a short period of time undetermined DNA damage might occur under the arms.

There is one unique product from Herbalix that can help eliminate any bad chemicals from our bodies — the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™.  It has been formulated to cleanse away buildup of unhealthy chemicals inside the body, and to release waste fluids. This in turn encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums.  The bonus is that this process encourages a reduction in daytime odors.

An organic non-aluminum deodorant, the popular Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cleansing Deodorant™ offers an exceptional cleanse while it also deodorizes while you sleep. Daytime deodorants typically work during the day to regulate and absorb odors. Herbalix deodorants are all made with certified organic ingredients and no synthetic chemicals or aluminums.

Herbalix is seeing growth as well, with particular interest among medical practitioners who are purchasing and reselling the company’s skin purging detox products to patients in need.

Breast Awareness Month 2014: Pinpointing Critical Factors Leading to Poor Breast Health

 Breast Awareness Month 2014: Pinpointing Critical Factors Leading to Poor Breast Health

Breast Health Awareness

Please consider October as the month to include breast health awareness and not just breast cancer.  Breast awareness needs full participation by everyone, especially the male population whose increase in the knowledge of the health and well-being of breasts will provide a greater understanding to all.

Herbalix Restoratives captured a vast amount of in depth information as related to breast and underarm issues, gained from two clinical trials.  The first clinical trial focused on the Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant – Trial #061218-150 – April 6, 2007, and the second one using the Sentinel Breast Crème in conjunction with Detox Deodorant  (WIRB #IRB00000533, 2013), both conducted in the United States.

Part One: First Clinical Trial

Comparing antiperspirants versus Herbalix aluminum-free Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™ on human subjects.

To capture and record the data, and in order to compare before and after, we applied tape strips in both the left and right underarm of each subject.  The tissue residual found in each tape stripping was measured by mass spectrometry.  With this measurement the lab could determine how much aluminum was present in the underarm.

The three week study began with a baseline measurement where each subject wore no deodorant or antiperspirant for one week. In the second week all subjects applied antiperspirant and in the final week all subjects applied the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. In this manner, a graph was established showing the weekly changes. 

  1. The first week was created as a baseline and showed that all subjects had varying levels of accumulated alum salts and that there was no symmetry, on one side verses the other.
  2. The second week where the subjects applied antiperspirants, there was a spiking on one side versus the other. It further showed that in the non-dominant (or weaker) arm, there was a higher level of alum salts recorded when using the antiperspirant.
  3. The final week showed not only a drop in the amount of alum salt recorded but also showed symmetry in each subject and in one case the level of accumulated alum salt had dropped below baseline.

After reviewing and studying this data, we asked ourselves, “Why did alum salts store in the non dominant arm more than the dominant side?”  And since breast cancer statistics showed that the upper outer quadrant of the left breast is the predominant location when detecting first stage breast cancer, we wanted to understand why this would be so.  When we analyzed the data and researched further, and when speaking with actual customers (nurses, doctors, buyers, and consumers), we were able to determine that in most cases, when the subject was right handed, their breast issues appeared on the left side and vs versa. 

Statistically more people are right handed than left handed, so that number should be higher automatically and would mean that something else is contributing to stagnation on the non-dominant side,  which is leading to congested lymph nodes and further deterioration of breast health.

We decided after this clinical to investigate breast issues for the upper outer quadrant contacting universities, clinics, scientists, medical groups, etc. for any information on this connection.  We found very little information on the correlation to non-dominant arm and aluminum salts.  Doctors do not normally ask whether the patient is right or left handed. However, doctors, radiologists and operating room nurses report that the left upper outer of the left breast is the most common site for early stage diagnosis.

In 2006 we came upon a group of special international scientists working on similar studies and connections on breast cancer. 

In 2006 we came upon a group of special international scientists working on similar studies and connections on breast cancer.  They work together under the Keele University Aluminum Scientists Group. Dr.  Philippa Darbre from the UK has amassed a vast amount of information on antiperspirants and breast cells.  In two laboratory studies conducted by Dr. Darbre, she reported findings of alum in the fluids of breast cysts as well as in breast tumors. 

Antiperspirants most always consist of alum salts.  The law of osmosis allow these salts to be absorbed and seep into the sweat ducts and in doing so shut them down.  Aluminum has no known human benefit.  It causes oxidative stress and a buildup overtime shows up in other areas.  (Further information will be provided in a follow up article).  One cannot separate the underarm from other parts of the body.  (E.g. The breast drains into the underarms.) We all need to aware of the blockage which antiperspirants are so effective in creating and the trapped residual alum salts backing up into the surrounding tissue including the breasts.

It is amazing that people still use antiperspirants and that relatively little research has been done to examine the connection between antiperspirants and breast cancer

Studies on the long term use of antiperspirants should be available for public review, but they are nowhere to be found.

Fears Concerning Enterovirus 68 Respiratory Virus Spreading

September 18th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

This year there are major concerns about the rare respiratory illness which is only affecting children across the U.S. The virus has now spread to at least 19 states, public health officials confirmed today, with four cases identified in children with asthma in California. The virus strain, known as enterovirus 68, can cause severe breathing problems. There have been around 153 confirmed cases across the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention. Sadly, it is believed that many more people have the virus and that it will appear in additional states in the near future.

First isolated in 1962 in California, the National Enterovirus Surveillance System showed 79 reports of the enterovirus 68 strain between 2009 and 2013.

One Herbalix Customer’s Results After an 80-Night Detox

September 14th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

Topical detoxing or skin purging is a novel approach to cleansing one’s body.  As we age our bodies become sluggish which you may notice as a decline in energy, changes in body functions, excess inflammation and apparent changes in body shape.  It may take as long to detox as it does for us to accumulate and build up toxicity, and each circumstance is unique. It is safe to assume that for every year of toxicity you could be looking at one month of commitment.  So if you have ten years of accumulation, then the average is generally 10 months to reach a desired goal. Medications, alcohol consumption, smoking, ingesting nicotine gum, diet, the amount of aluminum (alums) in your body from topical products like antiperspirants used under the arms, air, food, water, even environmental factors and stress, etc. — all add to how long it will take to detox.  Using any of the Herbalix organic detox products, Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™ or the Herbalix Women’s 80-Night Lymph Detox Kit will help create internal balance by ridding the body of accumulated toxins.

SwaetGlands One Herbalix Customer’s Results After an 80 Night Detox

Sweat glands can become blocked.

If you have been using a commercial deodorant or antiperspirant, check the label to see if it contains any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol, any or all of which can lead to the buildup of chemicals under your arms, resulting in irritation, hygiene problems, or worse. Blocking the sweat ducts results in backing up the lymphatic system, trapping the toxins and impacting cell function. The cell trash, impurities, toxins and bacteria affect the pH of the body, but also render the cells ineffective in performing basic and essential functions such as cell signaling. The ion channels are  ultimately out of balance, either with too much sodium or potassium. Alum is a salt which has no human benefit even though it is found in the earth’s crust. It is toxic to the human body and wreaks havoc with our body’s ability to manufacture and utilize calcium. The result is that we are calcium deficient; our lymph is clogged up with calcification and resulting cysts, etc.

The Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant uses kelp which is a higher form of salt than aluminum or alum. Kelp helps the body adjust to its natural pH and in turn allows the body to restore normal calcium levels naturally.

Herbalix skin purging detox products cleanse away buildup to release waste fluids, supports healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminum, encouraging a reduction in daytime odors.

Here is what one customer said after tracking her progress over three months of using the Herbalix Women’s 80-Night Lymph Detox Program includes:

• Detox Deodorant
• Geranium Deodorant
• Coriander Kelp Scrub Bar
• Belly Fat Freedom
• Sentinel Breast Crème

The program comes with explicit directions and convenient tracking sheets. Read the 80 Night Lymph Detox Protocol for Women [PDF]

“Here are the results of my 80-Night Detox! It was a wonderful experience and I am so thrilled I did it,” said Sophie Woodle, Minnesota

Side effects that I experienced on the program included:

1) Increased urination during the night that tapered off
2) Itchy skin throughout the night (intermittent)
3) Crazy dreams!
4) A weirdly big skin tag on the outside of my upper left thigh that shocked me when it showed up, which was near the end of my detox. I’m putting Frankincense on it nightly and it’s slowly shrinking.

Start Date: May 14, 2014
Neck – 14 inches
Chest – 38 inches
R. Arm – 13.3 inches
L. Arm – 13 inches
Waist – 35.3 inches
Hips – 41 inches
R. Thigh – 24 inches
L. Thigh – 23.5 inches
Weight – 155

End Date: August 12, 2014
Neck – 14 inches
Chest – 37.5 inches
R. Arm – 11.5 inches
L. Arm – 11.5 inches
Waist – 34 inches
Hips – 41 inches
R. Thigh – 22 inches
L. Thigh – 22 inches
Weight – 153

This customer’s testimonials shows that parts of the body are beginning to respond, which means the detox cream is working on the body systemically. She can still target specific areas topically if she wants to work on those, but her progress is excellent. The fact that she did not drop too many pounds at this stage is not the important part, as that will definitely come in time, but the loss of inches is amazing. Her body is now ridding itself of inflammation, much of it found in visceral fat. The body is smart in that it selects the places to begin the process of cleansing. With continued detoxing, a gradual, safe and sustainable change will take place as her body returns to a comfortable, healthy, appropriate size.

Do Your Lymph Glands Need to be Drained?

August 15th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

Our human lymph glands basically exist in order to collect waste from our blood. The lymphatic system circulates what is called interstitial fluid or lymph to your cells and body tissues. Everyone has between 500 to 600 lymph nodes, which play an important part in the functioning of a normal immune system. Lymph nodes are the little bean-shaped organs of the lymphatic system. These glands can be independent such as those located in the neck and collarbone or they can appear in groups under the arms in the armpit or in the groin area.

Lymphimages Do Your Lymph Glands Need to be Drained? Located in the underarm area, the axillary lymph nodes act as a filter for bacteria, viruses and other disease-causing microorganisms. Divided into two types, superficial and deep lymph nodes, the lymph glands are essential organs to the human immune system.

A part of the lymphatic system, lymph nodes are key to the body’s immune defense. Lymphatic fluids supply unfiltered body fluids to the lymph node for filtration. The fluids are collected by the efferent vessels and emptied to the cardiovascular system. If you have swollen lymph glands, it is a sign that the node is fighting a viral or bacterial infection, or worse yet, cancer. The swelling from swollen lymph nodes or glands can sometimes be alleviated by massaging the lymph nodes to physically help the lymphatic system rid the body of the toxins. People often increase exercise or soak in an Epsom salt and baking soda detox bath. Others increase exercise to sweat. The goal of massage therapy is to speed up the detox process.

People who study the non-aluminum deodorant market have long suspected that alums clog the lymph nodes, and could be linked to cancer. The lymph nodes are also a site for initiation of autoimmune system responses. The size of lymph nodes is very important to determine various medical conditions. Lymph nodes can become inflamed, swollen and painful under certain conditions.

Detoxing Lymph Glands

There are a number of specialists interested in new products coming into the marketplace that can reverse damage done from using underarm antiperspirant products containing these toxins. One such company called Herbalix Restoratives (www.herbalix.com) makes the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. The company does not use any type of synthetic preservative system in any of their products. The Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant is 100 percent paraben-free, and it has no metals – meaning it is a non-aluminum deodorant – and also has no propylene, phthalates, emulsifiers, dyes, fillers, or other synthetic ingredients.

In order to abate any issues with clogged lymph glands, a number of medical professionals, and people are switching from an aluminum-based antiperspirant to natural and organic skin care products. Some have experienced a detox or lymphatic reaction including everything from rashes to bad odor to itching and red bumps. Others experience swollen lymph nodes when they stop using anti-perspirants and begin to use a natural deodorant. But not to worry, your body is finally getting rid of the pore-clogging, lymph node disrupting action of the aluminum salts caused by antiperspirants.

There is also evidence that a lymph drainage massage can also help to aid nasal and sinus congestion, and even allergies. There are people who use products that aid in detoxing aluminum from the underarms and lymph glands. They may have experienced increased body odor, or even an itching response. Swollen lymph nodes are not a problem in themselves but rather a sign that the body is working to get rid of all those toxic ingredients – including aluminum – that you were using under your armpits every day.

Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

July 31st, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet.

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet. A number of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 (Folate), Vitamin C., E & K are found in coriander including traces of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, zinc.

HRCoriander Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

Coriander.

contains antioxidants and has amazing antibacterial activity against germ negative and germ positive bacteria by breaking down cell membranes. Besides its antibacterial effect, the use of coriander oil in antibacterial formulations effectively kills pathogenic bacteria related to food borne diseases and hospital infections. It contains biosorbents effect to absorb liquids and solids: According to a study Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) essential oil: “Its antibacterial activity and mode of action evaluated by flow cytometry”. Filomena Silva, Susan Ferreira, Joao A. Queiroz and Fernanda C. Domingues – Journal of Medical Microbiology (2011), 60, 1479-1486 DO1 1Q10.1099/jmm 0.034157-0 034157 @2011 SGM.

While researching information on coriander, sometimes seemingly unrelated subjects can provide new leads such as The Uptake of Fluoride, Aluminum and Molybdenum By Some Vegetables From Irrigation Water by Arjun L. Khandare., G. Shanker Rao – National Institute of Nutrition (ICMR), J.Hum.Ecol., 19(4):283-288(2006). One of the vegetables used in the study for aluminum salt loading, was coriander. In a graph comparing amaranth and coriander from aluminum in irrigation water, the concentration of aluminum in coriander was 4 times greater compared to the control. The bottom line is that coriander absorbs metal ions from aluminum in water.

In 2005 Herbalix Restoratives sponsored a clinical study. The purpose of the study was to see how coriander works in HR topical Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant®. We arranged for two labs to take tape samples of NCDD and a leading antiperspirant for comparison. The first lab used CuDerm Strippings consisting of 3 each of the NCDD, 3 of the antiperspirant and 2 blank strippings. The CuDerm Strippings were then transferred to a black paper and sent off to a second laboratory to be tested for ICP-MS Spectrometer analysis.

After testing the strips the second lab emailed back to the first lab to inform them that because they had applied the strips on a piece of black paper, the test results showed an abnormal reading of elevated alum from the NCDD over the antiperspirant. How could a deodorant contain this much aluminum? The answer is that all NCDD samples showed the ability to draw the black ink (made from aluminum) from the paper thus became a discovery showing the ability of NCDD to chelate aluminum from an inorganic source.

Below are the numbers that established the breakthrough.

1. Antiperspirants 1. 1,800
2. Negative Control 2. 7,000
3. Antiperspirants 3. 1,550
4. Antiperspirants 4. 1,370
5. Detox Deodorant 5. 115,000
6. Detox Deodorant 6. 120,000
7. Negative Control 7. 34,100
8. Detox Deodorant 8. 112,000

That works out to 70 times more aluminum that the NCDD extracted from the black paper.

For more information visit www.herbalix.com

Back in 2004 while learning from sources how third world countries used certain seeds to filter water, the idea of adding coriander seed to a deodorant, at that time a novel idea, brought forth an amazing discovery.

In 2006 HR sponsored a clinical trial evaluating subjects for levels of aluminum in the underarm, using the CuDerm tape strips. the first week was used as a baseline without applying any antiperspirant, the second week using antiperspirants and the third week, with the NCDD.

Baseline results gave variations of aluminum levels but all individuals showed asymmetrical loading in the non dominant arm (left and right). The second week using antiperspirants showed spiking in one arm vs the other. The third week, with the NCDD, showed reduction of aluminum in the underarms. Subjects returned to symmetrical levels (minimized the effects of antiperspirants) resulting in below baseline levels of aluminum indicating that NCDD was effectively absorbing aluminum.

Special Note: Baseline readings of aluminum variations in the samples demonstrate the human burden caused by aluminum (coming from air, water, food, antiperspirants, medication). Additional testing for metal loading can include skin as indicated in these studies.

In a follow up clinical trial in 2012, also using human subjects, it was clearly apparent in thermography scans that the NCDD and Sentinel Breast Crème® demonstrated symmetrical release of alum salts present in subjects tested. The asymmetrical loading of alum salts from antiperspirants can lead to health issues especially for women whose breast fluids drain thru the underarms.

These tests provide evidence of the ability for a topical detox with coriander to purge metals from the body.

Detoxing the Poor Little Armpit and More

July 25th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

box underarms Detoxing the Poor Little Armpit and More

Detox your underarms with Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant.

We have all been seeing recent television commercials talking about “your poor little armpit” sponsored by a leading soap brand. The reality is that yes, your armpit IS getting a bad deal. But not for the reasons they say.

For some reason, since Mum, the first commercial deodorant brand was introduced in the late nineteenth century, everyone listens to them. The big personal care brands developed and manufactured and marketed deodorant and antiperspirant products, and people never even questioned this – so people have been listening and slathering chemical laden stuff underneath their arms ever since. Yuck and why?

Our human underarms are among the most consistently warm and moist areas of the human body. The sweat glands also provide moisture, which when excreted, has a cooling effect.

Deodorants were initially intended to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of the perspiration underneath a person’s armpits. The same thing goes for feet, and other private and moist areas of the body. Then a special subgroup of deodorants were developed and they were named “antiperspirants,” affecting odor and designed to actually “prevent” sweating. This process happens by affecting a human’s sweat gland – something the Food and Drug Administration has classified and regulated as an over-the-counter drugs.

Think back, and you might remember the first commercial deodorant, Mum, which was was patented and sold in the late nineteenth century by an inventor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whose name has sadly been lost to history. Mum was briefly withdrawn from the market in the U.S., but it is now currently available at U.S. retailers under the brand name Ban.

There are studies globally proving that a small percentage of people are allergic to aluminum, and they can experience contact dermatitis when exposed to deodorants containing aluminum.

That said, the modern formulation of the antiperspirant was patented by Jules Montenier on January 28, 1941, called “Stopette” deodorant spray. Time magazine said that Stopette was “the best-selling deodorant of the early 1950s.”

But by the year 2007 a study stated that personal care products are potential contributors to the body burden of aluminum. Newer evidence has linked breast cancer with aluminum-based antiperspirants, and states that these chemicals, especially the aluminum in antiperspirants, are very bad for human beings.

A study published in the journal BMC Pediatrics, addresses infants and the early exposure to aluminum, pointing out that there is an urgent need to reduce the aluminum content of infant formulas. Headed by aluminum expert Dr. Chris Exley of the Keele University, it appears as if infant formulas used daily by millions to feed children up to 12 months-plus of age, are dangerous as they are contaminated with aluminum.

There is other information confirming that even the over-the-counter products labeled as “natural deodorant crystal” contains a chemical known as potassium alum which is bad for us. Labeled as a popular alternative to modern commercial deodorants, ammonium alum is a common type of alum sold in crystal form and often referred to as a deodorant crystal, and it has been used as a deodorant in the Far East, Mexico, Thailand, and other countries.

Antiperspirants and deodorants come in many forms, and keep in mind, what is commonly used in different countries worldwide will vary. As one example in the U.S., solid or gel forms rule, while in Europe the aerosol sprays are popular.
