The Benefits of OligoScan Technology and Heavy Metal Skin Purging from Herbalix Restoratives

February 21st, 2018

-Aluminum Toxicity Experts Speak at the 5th Seminar of Minerals and Toxic Metals February 18, 2018 in Akihabara, Tokyo Japan- 

When Michael and Elizabeth (Liz) Fessler, founders of Herbalix Restoratives, started to understand Aluminum (Al) and why it is used in antiperspirants, they discovered there was a lack of clarity on the safety of aluminum in cosmetics.  This led them to the discovery of a new underarm product – Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant® with botanical, osmotic properties, and clinically proven to purge aluminum from the underarm.

“The belief that aluminum is only from antiperspirants, is a myth,” said Michael C. Fessler.  “Researching the many sources of aluminum in air, food, water, cosmetics, and medications, which humans absorb every day, led to the development of an aluminum resource learning center for understanding Al toxicity. We became educational advocates once we realized that it is associated with over thirty diseases and there is no standard of care for the treatment of this health hazard.”

Three and one-half years ago, Herbalix was introduced to a medical device called the OligoScan, designed to measure intracellular heavy metal intoxication via the skin (tissue) using spectrophotometry. Everything the company’s founders had suspected about Al became clear; it can affect every cell in the body and the balance of minerals. In using the OligoScan their greatest discovery was that aluminum storage in the skin is the first stage in detox and that topical purging of aluminum helps to restore the body’s sweat channels.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another”. – Einstein

We live in a polluted industrial world and human bodies are subject to absorbing toxins from the air, water,  and food – every day. One of the most dangerous healthwise, Al is the most abundant metal on both the earth and the moon. It is an element that cannot be destroyed and can only be changed from one form to another.

Herbalix first developed the botanical preservative “Herbalix” for cosmetic application, and in the process, the founders discovered a topical formulation for absorbing alum salt. This paved the way to develop specially formulated skin purging products for remediating heavy metals using excretory pathways targeting contaminants in organs and identifying the involvement of aluminum in the lymphatic system.

Today the Fesslers work with aluminum scientists and doctors throughout the world – including at the upcoming prestigious Seminar of Minerals and Toxic Metals on February 18, 2018, in Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan.

Through the years the founders of Herbalix have learned that each person requires individual guidance for the detoxification of heavy metals and maintaining mineral balance. By 2014 the Fesslers partnered with a company known as OligoScan who had developed a revolutionary method to detect the bioavailability of trace minerals and heavy metal intoxication via spectrophotometry. Its OligoScan Spectrophotometer is now used by practitioners to detect heavy metals in patients globally.

The reality is that each and every human being is distinct, and excretes toxins in varying degrees due to the heavy metal toxicity burdening the human excretory system. More and more people are losing the ability to sweat. One of the benefits of using the Oligoscan is that each and every person scanned is distinct.  A practitioner can also see the distinction between an excreter and nonexcreter.  This is important to know before beginning detox treatments.

There are currently several different methods to test for heavy metals including, hair, blood, urine, and tissue.

The OligoScan technology is an invaluable screening tool for obtaining actual intracellular tissue levels of minerals as opposed to other testing methods which are only indicative of what is being pulled out of the extracellular circulatory system. It’s the most innovative testing methodology with the fastest turn around of results available anywhere in the world. OliogScan provides a new approach for practitioners to understand that it is imperative to work with the intracellular heavy metal toxicity before addressing mineral imbalances.

More specifically, for example, a hair analysis shows which metals were present during the last few months, and if a body cannot detoxify well, low amounts of metals will be found in hair, which is known as false-negative results.

Blood, urine or hair analysis results take about two weeks, while the Oligoscan provides results immediately.

Urinalysis shows to what extent the body can excrete metals. In a normal spontaneous urine sample, almost nothing is excreted. Only after the body is provoked reveals increased metal concentrations in the urine. This is done with a challenge test for toxic metals and it is a valuable test that shows specifically what amount metals are present in the extracellular environment.

Blood tests show metals which have circulated recently. Metals are dumped from the bloodstream into the tissues within a few days. Therefore, blood can only be used in acute situations to test for toxic metals. The amounts of minerals and trace elements remain fairly constant in blood.  For instance, many people with muscle cramps often show normal magnesium levels in serum, and also if the magnesium content is measured in red blood cells.

The OligoScan measures intracellularly. The urine challenge test, an extracellular measurement, and OligoScan, complement each other completely in this aspect.

Understanding aluminum’s ability to rob the body of critical minerals and interfere with functions such as mobility, memory, detoxing and digestion, provides a way to show the effects of how Herbalix products work in opening up the lymphatic system, purging heavy metals with ultimate validation measured in the OliogScan.

Topical detoxification (chelation) is an effective, easily controlled, less problematic and convenient approach to removing heavy metals.  Skin purging has the benefit of reaching places where internal cleanses may be restricted or have limited effect (skin, lymph, and dense breast tissue).

Herbalix topical skin purging products include:

Restoratives Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant (NCDD) – formulated to help cleanse and purge away toxic, heavy metals (aluminum) and impurities that have accumulated in the underarm area.  Use as a companion to Herbalix Non-Suppressing Daytime Deodorants.   Ref:  Herbalix Restoratives Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant Clinical Trial – April 13, 2007

Belly Fat Freedom™ (BFF) – a topical liver detoxification and cleansing approach, targets removal of retained toxins and heavy metals, promoting lymphatic drainage.  BFF is a remarkably safe and effective way to alleviate the heavy burden placed on the liver and deep visceral fat of the belly.

Sentinel Breast Crème™ an effective, topical detoxification poultice with the ability to purge and absorb accumulated toxins and heavy metals, in the skin, breast tissue, vaso-constricted lymph nodes and micro-vessels.  Used in conjunction with NCDD.  Ref: WIRB Sponsor Protocol Num: HC-JPD-001.01, WIRB Protocol #20110796.

Upright™ Stick for Men – As males age, they can accumulate toxic heavy metals leading to chronic inflammation in organs, most vulnerable the testes. To maintain a healthy, clean reproductive system, apply a light coat of Upright to the scrotum and perineum area periodically.  This topical crème made with detoxing powders will trap, absorb, and cleanse away (thru osmosis) unwanted aluminum allowing blood flow and natural nitric oxide to return.

Herbalix also offers the Women’s 80 Night Lymph Detox Program and Men’s 60 Night Lymph Detox Program.

Herbalix Coriander Kelp Scrub Bar – cleanses the skin of purged toxins, unclogs pores.  The soap is non-comedogenic and made with fresh whole Nubian goat’s milk – most like sebum of skin.  Alpha-hydroxy acids naturally help neutralize free radicals.

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

September 14th, 2014

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:

“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.

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.

The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

April 21st, 2014

Did you know that your bloodstream can absorb whatever toxic chemicals you put on your body? If you were to even try to count toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products, it would be overwhelming to find that about one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care and cosmetic products have been listed as hazardous. This includes Aluminum, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and pesticides. Why do people continue to use these products given that they cause such a high risk to our health?

Aluminum The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Aluminum.

Aluminum has cancer-causing properties. New research says that Aluminum has cancer-causing properties, even though it is still considered by the so-called health authorities as perfectly acceptable to eat, apply under the arms as an antiperspirant and to inject into the body of a child as a vaccine adjuvant.

However, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry there were increased levels of aluminum in non-invasively collected nipple aspirate fluids from 19 breast cancer patients who were tested against 16 healthy control subjects. New research says that Aluminum has cancer-causing properties, even though it is still considered by the so-called health authorities as perfectly acceptable to eat, apply under the arms as an antiperspirant and to inject into the body of a child as a vaccine adjuvant. According to a recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry there were increased levels of aluminum in non-invasively collected nipple aspirate fluids from 19 breast cancer patients who were tested against 16 healthy control subjects.

Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) has discovered a new insight into the knowledge of breast behavior stemming from the company’s clinical trial (WIRB #IRB00000533) entitled, “Impact of Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant® in Conjunction with Sentinel Breast Crème™ on Obstruent Salt Fluids in Breasts” which was conducted in the United States in 2013. The purpose of this trial was to monitor lymphatic flow patterns in breasts of women with fibrous cystic conditions. and to provide validation in how the Herbalix line of skin chelation detox products cleanse and unclog any lymphatic pathways. The purpose was also to observe emunctory waste, circulation, and lymph flow.

Results were from sequential thermal imaging that recorded, identified and evaluated pattern changes in each breast during the course of the clinical trial. When reviewing thermography images during the study researchers observed what appear to be influences extending from external or seemingly unrelated factors which up to this time had not been linked or associated with breast congestion.

Contributors such as antiperspirants mixed metal earrings, metals in dental work, , crystal style deodorants, and even body piercing, may disrupt and congest the breast’s ability to effectively and efficiently transfer cellular waste thru the underarm or skin in the form of sweat.

The Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cream can be used all over the body. It’s excellent for breast, neck, stomach, groin, as well as the bottom of the feet as a topical detox. HerbalixNighttimeDetoxCreme The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Additional features and benefits of the non-aluminum deodorant are as follows:
• Clinically tested
• Made with safe, botanical, chelating herbs
• Safe, effective, convenient
• Weekly maintenance program for cleansing and wellness
• Resolves asymmetric drainage in underarms

How does it work? You will apply the product for 30 nights initially– as most people have lifetime of toxic accumulation built up in their bodies, and it takes time to detox it all. Apply at bedtime. The monthly maintenance program will help counterbalance the alum as it enters the body in the future from multiple sources.

Don’t be surprised if you smell while detoxing. Some users will experience a temporary sensory reaction caused by what is exiting the body but for many sweating simply reveals an odor while the body is cleansing. After the initial 30-night cleanse, odors can be controlled with periodic application of the detox deodorant and use of a non suppressive day time 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.

DetoxDeodorant Daily Detox Make Easy: Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant

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.

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.

Organics is Fastest Growing Personal Care Product Segment

February 4th, 2013

Estimated to top $11 billion by 2016, organic products are the fastest growing part of the personal care market segment, according to market research firm Mintel. This segment is projected to outperform the conventional products very soon, and this big trend also presents many opportunities for manufacturers and retailers in the natural and organic skin care channel. Undeterred by the economic slowdown, research indicates that natural products are becoming more affordable as well.

Experiencing double-digit growth since 2005, the natural personal care market will continue to witness double-digit growth to $6 billion in 2015. Manufacturers’ sales in the natural segment are expected to increase by a CAGR of 11.2% to reach USD $6,624 million in 2015, up from USD $3,891 million in 2010. Skin care had 42.1 percent share in the total PC sales in 2010 with the natural hair care product segment at 12.7 percent market share. (Source: 2011 Kline & Company.)

The U.S. consumer market for natural and organic skincare, hair care and makeup–which during 2005-2010 boomed 61 percent to $7.7 billion — could top $11.0 billion by the year 2016. (Source: Packaged Facts).

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.
