Detoxing the Poor Little Armpit and More

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 Mum was briefly withdrawn from the market in the U.S., but it is now currently available at U.S. retailers under the brand name Ban.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.

Best Organic Skin Care Tips for Summertime

May 29th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

Everyone shows more skin in the summer, so here’s how Herbalix Restoratives (www.herbalix.com) suggests that you get ready to face the sun’s rays. Following are some of our best summertime organic skin care tips:

1) Exfoliate for smoother skin

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells. This technique has been around for many thousands of years and it actually helps improve the hydration from moisturizers.

Herbalix offers its unique blend of coriander seed and kelp in a superior Scrub Bar made with fresh goat’s milk. This Herbalix Restoratives Cream Bar Soaps helps exfoliate dead skin cells and release impurities. Choose from the gentle aromas of two fragrances – Ceremonial Sage or Coriander. Both will leave summer dry skin smelling clean and fresh, and looking luminous. soaps2 Best Organic Skin Care Tips for Summertime

2) Lighten sun spots with strawberry, lemon or lime

When you get too much sun, over time and also with aging, some people get what we call age spots. To help diminish them, cut a large strawberry in half and use a fork or knife to poke the flesh and draw out the juices, then swipe it across your face in small circles. Leave the juice on your face for several minutes, then rinse off. This will lighten up any sun or age spots over time. You can get the same effect with a lemon or lime, so slice a fresh lemon or lime and apply the fruit directly to the sunspots for 10 to 15 minutes per day. The acid in the fruits will lighten the spots and also helps to remove any dead skin cells.

3) Keep skin hydrated.

226 Best Organic Skin Care Tips for SummertimeAfter you exfoliate, follow up with the Supreme Solution™ intensive body moisturizer to seal in moisture and support cellular regeneration. It has been carefully formulated using a very rich and expensive blend of pure, skin beneficial, non-RBD oils including: Almond, Olive Safflower, and Rice Bran, Avocado, Pumpkin Seed, Meadowfoam, and Carrot Seed, to name just a few.

“So far I have tried the moisturizer, both the stick and the cream in the beautiful blue jar. The moisturizer feels like velvet on my skin as I rub it in. Its scent is so subtle, natural, and light. For those of us who have difficulties with scents and who are sensitive to many ingredients, thank you from the bottom of my heart…” said one customer who identified themselves as S.V. in Maryland.

The unique combination of oils will hydrate your skin thoroughly. This formulation is extremely concentrated so a little goes a long way. It has been formulated without alcohols, binders, fillers, or emulsifiers, so it takes extra time to absorb. Supreme Solution is available in three lovely scents: Supreme Solution Clary Sage, No Added Fragrance and Tropical Cove.

And this month of June, you are in luck! If you sign up for the Herbalix News & Deals newsletter, you can get a hefty 15% off all the Herbalix moisturizers during the month of June including Supreme Solution and The Herbalix Moisture Stick in Tropical Cove (right), a whole body moisturizer with organic herbs and essential oils. Use as a lip balm, facial moisturizer or anywhere you want to. The unique moisturizer stick application is great for summer vacations or business travels.

4) Drink plenty of H20

With summer’s higher temperatures and more time outdoors, you can become dehydrated, which sometimes leads to headaches. Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day. This will help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and it will benefit your skin tremendously. Remember that if you drink caffeinated beverages like tea or coffee, you need to drink even more water daily.

5) Use a No Added Fragrance Skin care Regimen

The summer’s UV light can cause brown spots, also known as photo aging, especially if you have sensitive skin. This results in coarse skin and wrinkles eventually, whether you have been sunburned or not.

NoFragrance Best Organic Skin Care Tips for SummertimeWhen sunlight comes in contact with skin damage happens with the stripping of barrier lipids, and this causes inflammation, along with the production of reactive oxygen molecules, affecting healthy cell growth, and the stimulation of enzymes that destroy collagen.

Tans may be a popular summer look, but it indicates damage to your skin. Cover up, and simply wear a hat that blocks the sun, then you won’t need any chemical laden sun screen.

If you have sensitive skin, try the Herbalix No Added Fragrance line of skin care products. Created for those who prefer clean products with no added fragrance. Synthetic chemical and petroleum free, these products contain no parabens, phthalates, or propylene glycol, and they can be used by the entire family.

Travelers Can Be 99% Germ Free with Herbalix Organic Soaps on Germ-ridden Airplanes

May 23rd, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

Recent research published by Auburn University confirmed that the surfaces inside an airplane can serve as hosts to many germs for as long as eight days. Meanwhile, Herbalix conducted research on its triclosan-free, organic skin care bar and liquid cleansing products–such as the Fresh Goat’s Milk Cream Bar Soap–finding them to be 99.99% effective against germs. (Source: CNBC News)

After sterilizing six surfaces normally found in the cabin of an airplane such as the seats, toilet handles, trays, etc., the researchers intentionally infected the surfaces with several bacteria, one of which was E. coli 0157, which can cause severe diarrheal disease. This resilient bacteria lived for up to 96 hours on the rubber armrest. The study was partially funded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Researchers found that some of the bacteria survived longer than a week especially the more porous the surfaces, as indicated below:

• 2 days: Steel toilet handle
• 3 days: Plastic tray table
• 3 days: Plastic window shade
• 7 days; Leather seat
• 7 days: Rubber arm rest
• 8 days: Seat pocket

The only remedy is to follow good hygiene, wash hands frequently, or use hand sanitizers. Do not touch your face, and wash hands frequently, as it has been proven that hand washing with soap is the best defense against germs. But many soaps are made with harmful synthetic chemicals and additives, which can strip beneficial oils and irritate the skin.

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

April 21st, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

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.

What can You do for Cold and Flu Relieve?

Respiratory Freedom What can You do for Cold and Flu Relieve?

Herbalix Respiratory Freedom Relief salve.

We have heard it thousands of times since childhood — to prevent a cold or the flu we must WASH OUR HANDS! But what many people do not realize is that in order to kill germs, you must wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water – something most people never do. This is just one thing you can do to prevent getting sick. A healthy immune system is also important, so eating right, drinking water to flush out your system, and getting plenty of sleep )eight to 10 hours per night.)

This is most certainly the number one thing you can do to prevent getting sick. Herbalix (www.herbalix.com) recommends using their wonderful organic goat’s milk soap cream bar or liquid soaps.

Make sure that you wash door handles with a disinfecting soap, and don’t forget doorknobs, the bathrooms and any of your children’s toys with natural cleansers to keep germs under control.

Next, do not touch your face so much because Even if germs are on your hands, they can’t enter the body unless through the eyes, nose or mouth. You would be amazed at how many times you actually touch your face every day.

If you believe you are getting sick, just stay home and avoid kissing anyone on the lips, and do not let people touch your hands. Do not share any drinks, food, or makeup such as lipstick, lip balm or even toothpaste with other family members.

Make sure you always allow fresh air into your home weekly if not daily, even when it is really cold outside. Studies have proved that the air inside your home has two to five times more germs than the air outside. Allowing fresh air in will help to get stale, unhealthy air and germs out!

When you need a cold and flu remedy for some relief, try using an organic product like Herbalix Respiratory Freedom Relief Salve.

When your are sick, just make sure you use disposable products like paper plates, paper cups and towels, plus plastic silverware. Place tissues around your home and remind family members to keep their hands clean. And never leave bowls of nuts or unwrapped candy of around the house. Make sure any candies or mints are individually wrapped.

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.

New Theories on Breast Cancer from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

January 23rd, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

A recent study from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington has shown that women who have been taking statin drugs for more than 10 years may face increased invasive breast cancer rates at more than 200 percent. Many physicians will continue to prescribe a daily statin dose to women who have cholesterol levels over 200. According to researchers there are not enough conclusive studies to show that statins actually protect women from fatal heart attacks.

According to the study, in the United States today, 25 percent of American women over 45, who have been taking Cresto, Mevacor, Pravachol or Vytorin, Zocor for more than 10 years had a 204 percent increased chance of developing invasive ductal breast cancer. What’s worse, they have a 243 percent increased chance of developing invasive lobular breast cancer.

To stay in control of our own health, it is best to be proactive by knowing what direction to take and the desired results. Today many individuals are reviewing with experts their lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and skin detoxification.

Recent developments in breast health issues are proving to be a game changer. Herbalix formulated Sentinel Breast Creme, designed to help keep breasts clean and healthy. The creme was used by women in a clinical trial showing changes/patterns in the breasts. These changes were tracked and observed thru thermal imaging.

The Sentinel Breast Creme is part of the Herbalix 80 Night Lymph Detox Program.

The 80 Night Lymph Detox Program for Women includes the following:

•Detox Deodorant – 2.5 oz
•Geranium Deodorant – 2.5 oz
•Coriander Kelp Scrub Bar from Whole Nubian Goat’s Milk – 4 oz
•Belly Fat Freedom – 4 oz
•Sentinel Breast Crème – .47 oz

Natural Cold and Flu Relief: Herbalix Respiratory Freedom Relief Salve

January 4th, 2014 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

By Liz Fessler

When the temperatures plunge as low as they have this week – many states are experiencing sub-zero weather conditions – it is no wonder that people are sick with colds and flu. But in reality, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), cold weather does not actually cause colds. Most likely colds occur more frequently during cold weather because the environments within the schools inside may increase exposure to the virus that causes colds – such as the coronaviruses and the rhinoviruses, which is the one virus that causes about 35 percent of all colds. Because people are indoors more in the winter, where the air is drier, this can mean a reduction in humidity, thus contributing to dry nasal passages, making us ripe for the viruses. It actually inflames the membranes in the lining of your nose and throat. There may be more than 200 different virus strains, but out of all of the cold viruses, the rhinoviruses (nose) and the coronaviruses (eyes) cause the majority of colds.

The common cold is basically just a viral and infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract affecting the nose and head. Symptoms are often miserable, including runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and a sore throat, along with joint stiffness, itchy eyes and a stuffed up head.

Did you know that during a one-year period, people in the United States will most likely suffer from about a billion colds. On average adults come down with between two to four colds a year, while young kids can have up to twelve colds in a year. Research from Ohio State University tells us that colds are one of the most prevalent illnesses, leading to more doctor visits and days missed from school and work than any other sickness annually.

Your overall health and resistance as well as the immune system help ward off colds, along with hand washing, avoiding touching mucous membranes such as the eyes and nose, coughing in your sleeve, hands to cover your mouth, using a tissue or handkerchief when possible or your sleeve as a last resort, and overall good hygiene. Naturalists will tell you to drink chicken soup, and that garlic, ginger or turmeric will help kill the virus germs.

There is one natural product that many people have discovered — the moisturizing stick salve, Herbalix Respiratory Freedom™ Relief Salve, which can help relieve

symptoms of nasal and chest congestion and sinus pressure due to the common cold and flu including post nasal drip cough and even neck stiffness. Or if you are often bothered by environmental allergens like synthetic fragrances, dust and pollen, then this product can help.

One of the key ingredients in the salve is Birch Essential Oil, which has the following basic properties: analgesic, antiseptic, astringent, anti-arthritic, anti-depressant detoxifying, disinfectant, anti-rheumatic, diuretic, germicide, stimulant and is even used as an insecticide.

The Benefits of Detoxing Your Body Through the Skin

December 24th, 2013 by Elizabeth Fessler No comments »

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.
