Daily Detox Make Easy: Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant

January 28th, 2014

The dangers of aluminum in our bodies is becoming mainstream. The problem is that people still do not realize how much aluminum is actually present in their everyday lives — from food to prescriptions to personal care products, aluminum, alum or some form of this mineral compound, are in just about everything we touch, breath and eat. Today, many people are trying to follow an Aluminum-Abstinence Therapy (AAT).

If you are really interested in learning about the damage that Aluminum could do to your body, check out our white paper entitled, “The era of Aluminum Overuse.”

Below we list just a few sources that might contain toxic amounts of aluminum.

Any food with aluminized baking powder, which is a mixture of chemicals used as leavening in baking products to make a cake (for example) rise during the baking process. It is typically used in foods like cookies, doughnuts, pie crusts, waffles, as well as prepared cheeses, and meats. READ THE LABELS! Also, watch out for aluminum in creamers for coffee, microwave popcorn, hot cocoa mixes and pickles/relish. Just look for aluminum-free baked goods, and other products such as non-aluminum deodorants.

When it comes to personal care products, read the labels on the following products: Body lotions, face creams, anti-perspirants, crystal style deodorants (alum salts), commercial soaps, most cosmetics, shampoos/conditioners, lip balms, and almost all suntan lotions and sun screen or sunblock products.

Many over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs contain aluminum so again, read the labels and consult your doctor or pharmacist. You can ask your doctor for alternative, aluminum-free medications.

Use every night for 30 days or longer to detox aluminum from your body.

If you find that most of the products in your home do have aluminum in them, begin a slow and steady detox program by using the aluminum-free Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. Aluminum of any type, toxic air vapors caused by chem trails or gasoline and environmental toxins are absorbed through the skin and lungs. They enter the blood and are ultimately transported throughout the body, ending up in the lymph system and are stored in our cells as well. The Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant cleanses and deodorizes while you sleep. It is safe, simple, convenient and works to cleanse your body thru the underarms. With frequent use, over time (usually a minimum of 30 nights) your odors and perspiration will become more manageable and less toxic. Here is what one happy customer had to say.

“Thank you so much for your nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. It has been the only deodorant to help my chronic armpit odor problems. I greatly appreciate the quality product that you offer.” – Melinda S. Stone Lake, WI.

The Benefits of Detoxing Your Body Through the Skin

December 24th, 2013

When you begin any detoxification program, it means you are cleaning out the body — removing impurities from your tissues, blood, and organs such as the liver. Your body also eliminates toxins through its kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, intestines and even your skin.

The benefits of detoxing are many … it can help your body’s natural cleansing process by: stimulating your liver so that it will naturally eliminate any toxins; improve blood circulation; promote elimination through the intestines and kidneys; and provide essential nutrients and energy (fuel) to the entire body.

Herbalix Restoratives is a leading organic skin care company specializing in detoxification through the skin. The company works with doctors to develop special detox programs such as Dr. Mitra Ray’s Men’s 60 Night Lymph Detox program. There is also a detox program especially for women — the Women’s 80 Night Lymph Detox Program. It includes the exclusive Sentinel Breast Crème.

The detox kit includes Herbalix organic detox products such as:
Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant – cleanses buildup and helps release waste fluids, encouraging lymphatic flow while absorbing all aluminums, and reducing odors.
Geranium Deodorant – Regulates and neutralizes rather than masks odors with a subtle fragrance of geranium essential oil.
Coriander Kelp Scrub Bar – with a blend of coriander seed and kelp to exfoliate dead skin cells and draw out impurities.
Belly Fat Freedom – helps remove toxins and promotes the loss of flab beginning in the belly area.

When you begin a detox program, there are several indicators that the toxins are transitioning out of your body, so do not be alarmed. These symptoms should not last more than a couple of weeks and keep in mind, these symptoms might fluctuate with deeper levels of detoxification.

Some symptoms as well as helpful suggestions include:

1) Drinking water is essential to the detox process.
2) Eat a simple diet of fresh foods including plenty of vegetables. Avoid caffeine and alcohol; be gentle to yourself and rest as often as you can.
3) Detox side effects might include tiredness, itching, skin eruptions, changes in feces, increased nighttime urination, noticeable body odor, and possible changes in your sleep pattern.
4) Many healthcare practitioners recommend warm water enemas. Dr. Mitra Ray and Dr. Jennifer Daniels who authored Do You Have the Guts to Be Beautiful (Shining Star Publishing, 2011) suggest beginning enemas about a week prior to the Herbalix detox.
5) Be sure to keep a diary and track your body weight and measurements from start to finish of the detox process 30 days later.
6) Be sure to wear old pajamas or a tee shirt as sometimes clothing can be stained. The staining may be a direct result from what is actually coming out of your body. Do not over apply the creams.
7) Avoid wearing metal jewelry, such as earrings, when using these detoxification products – especially not at night.
8) Always remember to use soap to wash off any residue in the morning and use the daytime deodorant provided in the kit instead of commercial deodorants.

If any of the above symptoms are uncomfortable enough to make you want to stop, then simply either apply less of the topical creams or take some time off for rest in order to slow down the build up of detox symptoms. Doing so will help your body get into a manageable detox rhythm more easily.

You can repeat this detoxification program two times per year for ongoing detox from food xenobiotics, aluminum and other metals, as well as environmental toxins.

Organic Skin Care and Body Detox Stands up to the Test of Time

September 5th, 2013

By Elizabeth Fessler

For centuries humans have interacted with their physical world and their own bodies. Skin care methods and body detox methods have stood the test of time for a good reason. There were many early methods for detoxification, among multi cultures – from India and Asia to the United States – including everything from dry brush massage, to cupping, to counter-irritation. What’s more, an internal detox, or colonic irrigation is actually mentioned in the bible.

Cleopatra Organic Skin Care and Body Detox Stands up to the Test of Time

Dating back to ancient Egyptian times, skin detoxification and beauty rituals included a number of primitive methods. One popular ancient organic skin care detox method was the use of sea salt from The Dead Sea.

Our Egyptian ancestors believed that toxins formed in the body because of decomposition within the intestines, which ultimately resulted in a fever. One ancient method was known as “counter-irritation” which was produced by the direct application of a hot instrument or a cautery that was manufactured in a variety of shapes. Basically, drainage was implemented to cause a chronic inflammatory reaction which resulted in the form of a bister or running sore which could be maintained for a long period of time. This way, the humors (poisons) could be continuously released from the body. Counter-irritation was often used in the treatment of paralysis and asthma. The blister was commonly produced by applying a blistering agent such as a poultice of cantharides, and it was then left in place until a blister formed. Boiling liquids — oil, honey, wax and syrup were often used for cauterization. The doctors would often apply the cautery until they heard sizzling along with a noxious smell and shrived skin.

Dating back to ancient Egyptian times, skin detoxification and beauty rituals included a number of primitive methods. One popular ancient organic skin care detox method was the use of sea salt from The Dead Sea, which was often used by Cleopatra in her bath to combat skin problems including psoriasis or eczema.

Cupping is another body detox technique that has been practiced in China for many thousands of years. Believed to help free up blockages of energy pathways in the body, cupping involves placing heated glass cups onto the skin at key pressure points, causing suction which stimulates blood circulation.

Dry skin brushing – brushing the skin with a dry brush – has been used for many centuries in Europe for. internal and external toxin elimination. It aids in unclogging pores that have become clogged from makeup, toxins in the air or from food. Dry brushing helps get rid of the dead skin cells with toxins, and it also helps increase circulation.
Throughout history in most societies humans have practiced massage to relieve muscle tension and help eliminate waste matter from the muscles, as well as to assist in keeping the system regular. Recently – during the last century – massage has brought forth many new techniques to help cleanse the human body.

Today skin detox methods are much more sophisticated including products that have been formulated especially for the purpose of detoxing the body. Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) has been successfully marketing its Cleansing Detox Deodorant – a pure and organic Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant is designed to cleanse aluminum, unwanted debris and impurities from the body.

Non-Aluminum Deodorants are Gaining in Popularity

February 8th, 2013

The New Year always prompts people to begin new regimens and promise new affirmations for better health. There are recent studies about the dangers of some of the various ingredients in our everyday personal care items and household products — causing everything from learning deficits to cancer. In fact there has been recent news about the possible link between aluminum and breast cancer. As a result non-aluminum deodorants are gaining in popularity.

Stop and think it through, and it makes sense. Our underarms feature the lymph node which is in turn linked by lymphatic vessels with fluids that surrounds our cells. The lymphatic system plus the sweat glands drain waste from human tissue. This helps the body fight off infections. Some waste leaves our bodies through the sweat glands, and the liver and our kidneys. However, if our lymph glands become filled up with aluminum from the use of antiperspirants, then our bodies can’t drain the waste effectively.

What really happens? Aluminum typically enters our bodies externally via pores and sweat glands, food, water, air and medications, then it collects in the tissues. Ultimately it ends up in our lymph glands. When aluminum is found in the body, it can be a contributing factor in neurological degeneration which is caused by cellular mutation.

Over the last couple of years, there has been an increase in the the use of non-aluminum deodorants as people have learned more over the Internet about the potential dangers of the ingredients in traditional antiperspirant. As organic and green products become more popular, many manufacturers such as Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) are eager to market their products as genuinely organic.

There are a number of women, and some medical practitioners who believe that antiperspirants are linked to mammography. They often cite the hazardous health effects of radiation, and there are other studies that prove the dangers of many ingredients used in everyday beauty and personal care products including aluminum. This is why you see more and more aluminum-free deodorants on the market.

Natural Skin Care Trends for 2013

December 2nd, 2012

One fairly odd skin care trend for 2013 is a “Nightingale Poo” treatment which has beneficial enzymes in the bird’s feces. Lovely! This treatment can be used to exfoliate and help rejuvenate the skin, and is just one of the many new concepts surrounding natural skin care products. However, this is probably one we would not recommend. However, there is huge growth in the natural and organic skin care and cosmetic industry, as evidenced below.

Mintel, a market research firm, did a forecast back in 2010 showing that the skin care future would be bright with sales projected to increase from $4.35 billion in 2009 to $4.97 in 2013 after economic recovery in the United States and globally. The firm also said that the biggest year on year growth would take place in 2013 at 4.9 percent.

The latest trends today in cosmetics and skin care involve new projection motion sensor technologies. For example, in the Asia Pacific where space is limited, marketers are using technology to target the consumer and bring them into the buying experience. First they will track to find out if you are a man or a woman, and you may hear and see water, then when you walk away this water turns into a trickle.

New technology in Brazil projects images of real live people in digital form onto a screen featuring products along the side. If you are a customer, you would simply point at the product you wish to try, then use your finger to pretend to apply lipstick, and it will suddenly appear on your lips in the image on the mirror.

When it comes to natural skin care products, in 2013 the trends will continue for pure organic skin creams, and serums that support skin cell regeneration. Detoxification creams will become more and more popular – even those that help target belly fat for weight loss – such as Belly Stripper. One detoxing product is called the Herbalix Cleansing Detox Deodorant, which cleanses and deodorizes while you sleep, removing any buildup of metals like aluminum caused from antiperspirants. This ultimately supports healthy lymphatic flow, and ultimately reduces underarm odors altogether.

Herbalix Nighttime Detox Deodorant and Metal Detoxificaiton

November 14th, 2012

Metal detoxification in the human body is big news lately – among dentists due to the silver fillings in your mouth, also known as amalgams.

Dental amalgams can contain up to 50 percent mercury and other heavy metals. Today’s research indicates that exposure to toxic mercury from these fillings can be bad for our health. These fillings can leach into the brain causing distressing symptoms both mentally and physically.

Heavy metal toxicity has been tied to diseases from brain disease to breast and prostate cancer with symptoms that can include brain fog or memory problems, headaches, fatigue, mood disorders, joint pain, muscle pain, constipation, digestive issues, hormone imbalances and blood pressure concerns.

In today’s environment, we are exposed to many sources of heavy metals in environmental contaminants including dental amalgams, but also pesticides, cosmetics, vaccinations with mercury and aluminum based preservatives, and even fish.

Herbalix has been doing research on aluminum exposure and toxicity for years, and it is why the company came up with its Herbalix aluminum-free cleansing deodorant products that help remove the aluminum accumulation resulting from the use of antiperspirants and other sources. Recommended by health care professionals, Herbalix provides organic and natural alternatives to chemical and environmental irritants found in most personal care products.

The Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant is used nightly for 30 nights, then as needed to help control accumulation. There are a lot of people who believe it is best to make the switch to non-aluminum deodorants. Aside from the irritation they can cause skin daily, the preservatives and chemicals used in most popular brands of antiperspirants and deodorants have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, kidney failure and even cancer. And also be very careful because some “natural” deodorants claim to be natural, but upon closer look usually reveal that they have aluminum, alums or other bad ingredients. These brands may just not be as toxic as the more well known, bigger brands.

Sweating is Good For You When You Use Detox Deodorant

September 18th, 2012

Our bodies sweat for a reason, and sweating is good, if not necessary. Sweat means that your body is operating efficiently and releasing toxins from your body. Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. We must keep it functioning properly.

Unfortunately traditional antiperspirants and deodorants simply plug up your sweat glands using aluminum and other ingredients like parabens that can do more harm than good.

The Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University reminds us that antiperspirants are a drug as they are classified as such by the FDA. If you have used regular deodorant and would like to make the switch to organic deodorant, first use Herbalix Detox Deodorant to help rid your body of toxins like aluminum and petroleum. With a blend of sea vegetables, olive leaf, and coriander, it smells lovely while helping to purify your system.

Use the non-aluminum nighttime Detox Deodorant for thirty consecutive nights. Then a maintenance program will work. Believe it or not, you wont smell any more after using it. Therefore you barely need deodorants at all, but just because we are all so accustomed to them, try organic Herbalix Daytime Deodorants — it comes in no fragrance for those who are sensitive.

Benefits of Nighttime Detox Cleansing Deodorant

August 5th, 2012

The Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant is the latest rage among people seeking organic deodorants.

If you look online, you will see that folks everywhere have started asking questions — on Yahoo Answers, Yahoo, Google and Facebook, and on and on in social media sites. People are reading about the dangers of aluminum in our bodies, and are now afraid to put antiperspirants and deodorants under their arms.

“Aluminum is a neurotoxin which affects diverse metabolic reactions… Aluminum chlorohydrate is the “bad” ingredient used in many antiperspirants,” according to Pub Med.gov, US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

According to The Chemical Book, aluminum is classified as follows: “Strong evidence of human neurotoxicity” Health Hazard: “TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death.

And, many people don’t realize that their skin is not a barrier to aluminum. What you put on your skin matters because it absorbs. Now more and more consumers believe that we now need to seriously investigate the absorption of aluminum on the skin – especially since it is already in so many personal care and cosmetic products.

Research continues regarding cleansing aluminum out of the body towards better health, because it can affect the lymphatic and endocrine systems. It’s just another indicator of why you should think about using only aluminum-free deodorants from now on.

And look for the Herbalix Nighttime Detox Deodorant used for 30 nights to cleanse aluminum from the underarms.

The Benefits of Olive Oil in Skin Care Products

June 30th, 2012

Olive oil has been a Mediterranean cosmetic and culinary staple forever. You might have read about it in history books –the ancient Romans used it in their baths to collect dirt and sweat.

Sadly, today we have embraced health and beauty products made from primarily synthetic ingredients. But, olive oil is prized for its lubricating properties for skin and hair because it is brimming with vitamins A and E.  Plus olive oil contains a triterpene called squalene that is highly valuable, which has antioxidant properties and is believed to inhibit UV damage.

Using olive oil based skin care products also help maintain and restore skin’s elasticity, and when used after a bath or shower, can help the skin to retain hydration by inhibiting water loss.  Herbalix Supreme Solution body moisturizers contains high concentrations of not only olive oil, but also skin nourishing emollients including sweet almond oil, avocado oil and rice bran oil (which also contains squalene).

The Herbalix Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizers are quite potent, water-free moisturizers that are formulated for both men and women.  They are free of petroleum products, propylene glycol, parabens and other synthetic ingredients. Herbalix moisturizers deliver a heavy dose of lubrication to parched skin.  They are available in either fragrance-free versions or suffused with fresh and invigorating essential oils including clary sage essential oil, grapefruit essential oil, blood orange essential oil and cinnamon bark essential oil, among others.

Supreme Solution moisturizers are very intense, unlike most commercial lotions. In order to receive the full benefit, one must massage the lotion deeply and thoroughly to allow the nourishing oils to penetrate fully.  Once fully absorbed, Herbalix Supreme Solution Body Lotion will provide continuous skin softening properties for hours on end.

It’s important for your skin to look as radiant as possible.  Before heading out to the beach or any sun-intensive summer destination, try treating your skin to a natural, soothing and luxurious Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizer.

Can Detoxing Underarms Cut Down on Abdominal Fat?

May 18th, 2012

The proportion of fat to body weight usually increases as we age. Especially women after menopause around 50 years of age. The extra pounds pile on around the midsection, causing that dreaded middle age spread also known as muffin top in women and beer bellies in men. This dreaded abdominal fat, is in actuality, visceral fat and it hides deep in the abdominal cavity of your body near the organs, which is why it can be a key component in many health problems. The other kind of fat that you can grab onto is known as subcutaneous fat.

Visceral fat is known to cause metabolic disturbances and increased risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  Some believe it is also  associated with the need for gallbladder surgery and even breast cancer, which brings to mind how our bodies deal with toxins.

For instance, did you know that many of the branded deodorants today on the market have aluminum, and other ingredients known to clog the sweat ducts underneath your arms?  One of the best-selling products is the Herbalix Detox Deodorant, which helps detox aluminum from the body through use nightly. More and more consumers are switching to non-aluminum deodorant today.

Check the labels to see if your deodorant products contain any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol.  These ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under your arms, resulting in irritation or worse. Antiperspirants may leave  alum salts in the underarm and some believe it can cause undetermined DNA damage.  Just remember that the detox deodorant Herbalix makes can help clean out your lymph glands and tissues to rid the body of aluminum.

And remember that  toxins in our bodies cause the accumulation of abdominal fat, which stores the toxins deep in the visceral fat, often causing excess inflammation and metabolic disorders.  That is why Herbalix is soon to announce a new and exciting product that uses the same theory of detoxing the underarms, to detox the fat in your body — and in particular, helping to rid the body’s visceral fat of toxins – while you sleep.  What for news soon.
