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.

Holistic Scalp and Organic Hair Care

May 29th, 2012

Most people, especially women, spend so much time focusing on skin care, but what about their scalps?   Usually, we don’t think about it until there is a problem.

For example, Seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) affects about 12  percent of the population — and the reasons why can be the weather, diet, or stress,  but sometimes your genes play into it all.  It can be from anything that causes the excess oil production, and most likely it is from your genes.

The symptoms are when your scalp is red, and the flakes may have a yellowish tinge. The reason people get dandruff is because of an overgrowth of malassezia or fungus which everyone has on their scalp. It is basically from excessive oil production or sebum. The fungus digests the surface oil on the scalp, and that causes an inflamation that turns into the flaky, itchy, dry scalp.

To relieve the symptoms of dry scalp, many people find that they do better with less irritating, more gentle organic hair care products such as those found at Herbalix, such as the Shampoo For All Hair Types (Balancing) – No Added Fragrance. This shampoo has a clean, mild, aroma that comes from the healthy base oils, and it is great for people with sensitivities to essential oils or those who enjoy fragrance free products.

Preventing Breast Cancer

January 28th, 2012

A new report is out based on a two-year-long study designed to determine if there is a defiite link between breast cancer and our environmental factors. Based on a panel of 15 cancer-research experts and nine members Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies of Science, the members to a look at hormone therapies, plastic, hair dye, heavy metals, flame retardants, chemicals, pesticides and industrial chemicals, radiation, drinking tendencies and smoking and evencanned food. Sadly, about 230,000 women have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the year 2011.

As of yet the report produced inconclusive evidence that chemicals were party to causing breast cancer. It also excited a lack of reliable scientific literature — however, for the first time, the Institute of Medicine is now alerting doctors to pay more  attention to chemicals.  There are even some studies showing biological activity which could be a link to breast cancer.

Researchers did not yet come up with a definitive answer but that does bot mean the chemicals in question are safe. Plus the data on suspect chemicals like parabens or BPA was not as complete as it could have been, partly due relaxed chemical regulations that have allowed 40,000-plus chemicals to be released onto the marketplace without any testing whatsoever for long-term health.

There have been numerous conflicting reports over the years. Some scientists proposed that certain ingredients in underarm antiperspirants or deodorants may be related to breast cancer because they are applied to skin next located next to the breast, and lymph glands. Human exposure to aluminum results in its accumulation over time. This has caused many consumers to start to choose non-aluminum deodorants.

One  chemical widely used as a preservative in  pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food products has recently been found in tissue samples from 40 women who have breast cancer. There were numerous studies since 1998 which have raised concerns about the potential role of these parabens, which had they have oestrogenic properties. in breast cancer –  The research team studied these samples from 40 women who were having mastectcctomies, finding 99 per cent of the tissue samples contained at least one paraben.

Parabens are a chemical compound found in many toiletry products and that includes underarm deodorants. The most common parabens used in cosmetic products are propylparaben, butylparaben and methylparaben, and also  sobutylparaben and benzylparaben.   millions of people globally still use traditional products that are made with alum salts or aluminum and parabens, although many people have migrated towards non-aluminum deodorant in recent years.

What is interesting is that the team found even women who didn’t use underarm deodorants still had parabens in their tissue, which suggests that they are entering the breast tissue via other sources, ultimately confirming there is, “no simple cause and effect relationship between parabens in underarm products and breast cancer.”

There are companies like Herbalix Restoratives that make detox cleansing deodorants that rid the body of excess aluminums, and it is recommended that women use non-aluminum deodorant and anti-perspirants.

Even though the treatment for breast cancer has come a long way, and the death rate has fallen by more than 30 percent since the year 1990, actual breast cancer prevention has not come very far as of yet. Even though there has been evidence that links chemicals and other environmental contaminants to the disease, there are some other science-based ways that could protect women.

It is essential to be active and cut any excess body fat to avoid risks for breast cancer risk dramatically. Obesity, along with genetics, contributes to about 30 percent of the breast cancer diagnoses, so watch what you eat — go organic to avoid chemicals, and avoid canned foods. Try a non-aluminum deodorant, avoid excess radiation, research your hormone therapies carefully, watch the amount of alcohol you drink, and quit smoking.

The study’s researchers have also placed a big emphasis on the possible role of benzene in causing breast cancer. You can get a whiff of benzene as it vapors off when you pump gas for your car, or inhale air pollution. Always avoid running your car inside a garage, and be careful around gas-powered equipment such as leaf blowers or mowers. Don’t store these items in your home’s basement. Benzene also often emits from scented candles, creating indoor air pollution. Get beeswax candles instead. And overall start using green products to reduce chemicals in your home.

Links Between Mercury in Vaccines and Autism

December 6th, 2011

Once again the link between mercury in vaccines and autism is in the news with new findings by the nonprofit group known as Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD) is proving that the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) deliberately manipulated, by covering up scientific data showing links between vaccines containing mercury and autism.

CoMeD obtained critical documents via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, and has now officially exposed the CDC  and its role in manipulating a key Danish study that showed a clear link between vaccines containing mercury and autism. Now the CoMeD is pressing the CDC to conduct a criminal investigation then make a formal declaration about whether or not there was scientific fraud.

Using Natural Deodorant Benefits the Environment

August 17th, 2011

We have all heard about the possible connection between the chemicals found in cosmetic products and potentially increased rates of cancer. This is just one reason why many people have already switched from a traditional deodorant to a natural deodorant because they are free of toxic chemicals and other ingredients that can cause skin irritations or even allergic reactions. However,  in addition to keeping your body free of chemicals, keeping our environment free from chemicals is a good idea too.

Did you realize that traditional deodorants are often releasing dangerous chemicals into our environment? For instance, mineral oil releases a great deal of carbon emissions into the air during manufacturing.  This is an ingredient used in traditional deodorants. What’s more, there are other substances like  formaldehyde triclosan and harming the earth’s plants and wildlife after  entering the atmosphere. Even the process of mining the aluminum used in many traditional antiperspirants will pollute the waterways, and destroy the landscape. And not only that, but it also consumes large amounts of electricity.

According to Lester Brown’s Eco-Economy: Building an Economy for the Earth, carbon emissions that are released during the mining and production of mineral oil and aluminum contribute to greenhouse gasses and global warming.  The aluminum industry consumes as much electricity as the entire continent of Africa.

Even more frightening,  chemical residue from deodorants with chemicals like aluminum washes off when we are taking a shower, and then  flushes down the drain and into the water system.  Aluminum chlorohydrate is a recognized drinking water pollutant that damages the ecosystem, and it is the active ingredient in many traditional antiperspirant products. Then there is triclosan, an antimicrobial agent that accumulates in the streams and rivers, and ultimately damages our marine life.  Formaldehyde, and mineral oil, parabens  and diethanolamine  also accumulate in the water sources and  eventually will contaminate our drinking water.

Natural deodorants do not contain ingredients that harm the environment. The ingredients found in a natural deodorant is usually biodegradable and does not damage our environment the way their traditional counterparts. What’s more, their manufacturing processes are  environmentally sound and requires fewer resources.

Do Your Kids Stink?

May 6th, 2011

Body order doesn’t begin until children are in puberty, so it is not normal for children under this age to have body odor. If they do harbor noticeable body odor, your child may have a medical condition which a health care practitioner can diagnose.

Children’s underarm sweat glands don’t really even develop until they reach puberty, so if your kids stink, it is because they are sweating elsewhere — such as the head, feet or hands.

But if a child has bad body odor, you definitely don’t want to give them a non-organic deodorant as it can be harmful to a child. Why? A deodorant that is non-organic usually contains harmful chemicals that can trigger an allergic reaction on the skin.

Always use a natural deodorant or an aluminum-free deodorant like Herbalix Cleansing Detox Deodorant, applied topically. This will assist in getting rid of your child’s bad body odor.

Cancer Studies on Lymph Nodes Prompts Use of Detox Cleansing Deodorant

March 23rd, 2011

There are a number of people who are re-thinking what is causing breast cancer, and true naturalists have already switched to non-aluminum deodorant, just to be safe. Why? It has to do with lymph nodes — those little bean-shaped organs of the lymphatic system. Also known as lymph glands, the lymph nodes function to collect waste from the bloodstream. The lymphatic system circulates the interstitial fluid called lymph to your cells and tissues. Those studying the non-aluminum deodorant market have long suspected that alums clog the lymph nodes, and could be linked to cancer.

A recent study found that many women with early breast cancer may not need a painful procedure that has long been routine: removal from the armpit of suspicious cancerous lymph nodes. Researchers have reported in this study that is to be published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, that for 40,000 women a year in the United States, some 20 percent of patients, taking out cancerous nodes has no advantage whatsoever, because the cancers are already being treated, or killed, by chemotherapy, rendering lymph node removal unnecessary.

There are up to 600 lymph nodes in your body all of which are important in the functioning of the immune system. They can be independent or in groups of nodes around the armpit area and groin, and located in the neck and collarbone. These axillary lymph nodes act as filters of viruses, bacteria, and other disease causing microorganisms. Nodes are divided into two types, superficial and deep lymph nodes. Essential organs of the immune system, lymph nodes supply unfiltered body fluids to the lymph node for the filtration process. Then these filtered fluids are collected by the efferent vessels and emptied into the cardiovascular system.

Major sites for initiation of autoimmune system responses, the nodes are not usually sensitive to touch, but they can become swollen, inflamed and painful under certain conditions. The size of lymph nodes is important to determine the medical condition.

Many studies have surfaced linking the preservative parabens with breast cancer, including one 2004 study. (Source: The Journal of Applied Toxicology.) The research and medical communities can’t agree on whether or not the parabens or aluminum salts in antiperspirants are truly dangerous due to the fact that they are only following cosmetic claims.

A number of people are interested in new products coming into the market that can reverse damage done from using underarm products with aluminum — Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™ is manufactured by Herbalix Restoratives, a company who does not require any type of synthetic preservative system in any of their products. The 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.

Why Herbalix is Forging “What’s Under YOUR Arms Campaign”

March 11th, 2011

Many people grew up believing that government agencies were there to protect us against dangerous chemicals or ingredients in products. The trouble is today, many of the ingredients in consumer products could be causing everything from cancer to learning deficits. One such ingredient is aluminum. It is everywhere, in the air, food, medicines, and skin care products like antiperspirants.

Most chemicals are virtually unregulated, because federal law does not require testing for harmful effects before chemicals are allowed for use in products or manufacturing. Once chemicals are in use, it is extremely difficult for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to restrict them. Washington lacks the legal and regulatory structure needed to prevent harmful chemicals from turning up in consumer products.

Herbalix has developed the first of its kind non-aluminum deodorant called the Cleansing Detox Deodorant™ for nighttime use, made with certified organic ingredients. In addition to launching their new website, www.herbalix.com, the aluminum-free deodorant campaign has been designed to raise awareness of the fact that most antiperspirants contain aluminum as the active ingredient and are classified as “drugs” because they change the physiological process of the body, acting like little ‘plugs’ to stop sweat. The use of commercial deodorants can lead to the buildup of chemicals resulting in irritation and hygiene problems.

Through its extensive research of the underarm (axilla) and aluminum, Herbalix developed its Cleansing Detox Deodorant to cleanse away buildup, allowing for the release of impeded waste fluids, encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminum, encouraging a reduction in daytime odors.

Why Crystal Rock Deodorant Is Not Aluminum-Free Deodorant

March 3rd, 2011

A category of natural mineral salt deodorants, crystal rock deodorant, is claiming to prevent odor before it starts.

On the other hand, most major brand deodorants use harsh chemicals to mask odor and actually stop sweat. Here’s how they typically work: the mineral salts form a topical layer on your skin. This is inhospitable to most of the bacteria that cause odor. Although the manufacturers of crystal body deodorant claim their products contain no alcohol, parabens, or aluminum chlorohydrate, they in fact do still contain Potassium alum and Ammonium alum compounds. Therefore they are not aluminium-free deodorants.

There is misleading science regarding the compounds potassium alum and ammonium alum when used in so called “natural” products. This is especially true in relationship to their use in crystal body deodorant. Most people believe that neither are actually components of aluminum, when in fact the alum in crystal deodorants is either potassium alum or ammonium alum.
