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.

Do Your Lymph Glands Need to be Drained?

August 15th, 2014

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

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

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

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

Detoxing Lymph Glands

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

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

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

Detoxing the Poor Little Armpit and More

July 25th, 2014

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.

Natural Cold and Flu Relief: Herbalix Respiratory Freedom Relief Salve

January 4th, 2014

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

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.

What typically causes sinusitis? This is when a person’s membranes lining the sinuses become inflamed. One reason can be a structural problem in the nasal cavity which causes pressure, and then triggers headaches due to changes in the sinuses. However, the most common reasons are that sinusitis happens because of a fungal or bacterial infection, a simple cold or an impaired immune system. Sinusitis can affect anyone, however, people are more likely to develop chronic sinusitis when they have a weak immune system, or other ailments such as asthma, allergies to dust, mold or pollen, polyps, nasal growths, or cystic fibrosis, which affects how mucus moves within the respiratory system.

Herbalix Restoratives Organic Shampoo is Triclosan-free

November 13th, 2013

You may have been hearing bad things lately about triclosan, an antifungal, antibacterial agent that is often used in consumer products such as shampoo. Triclosan, which is under FDA review, is a polychloro phenoxy phenol and has shown no real benefit to our health beyond its anti-gingivitis effect in tooth care products, and there is no known benefit for its use in hair care products.

Triclosan is basically a chlorinated aromatic compound that is sold under several trade names — Amicor, BioFresh and UltraFresh. A component in many pesticides, triclosan also shows up in housing insulation, in flooring under layments (laminate and engineered wood), and carpeting used for the purpose of stopping the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mildew and in mattresses, and which has not been successfully documented or demonstrated.

If you use a product containing triclosan, you could absorb a small amount through your mouth or skin. Triclosan can be bad for the immune system, according to research, and it has been proven to alter hormone regulation in animals, as well as contribute to developing antibiotic-resistant germs. In one study conducted in 2008, designed to assess exposure to triclosan in a representative sample of U.S. children and adults, researchers found triclosan in the urine of 75 percent of those tested.

Deodorants Can Cause Allergic Contact Dermatitis but not Herbalix Deodorants

October 7th, 2013

According to a study from Researcher MV Heisterberg, the most frequent cause of contact dermatitis allergy is the fragrances in deodorants, and cosmetic products are the main cause of fragrance contact allergy. This study compared deodorants and fragrance mixes, and it led Heisterberg and colleagues to determine that deodorants were the leading causes of fragrance allergy. This is especially true among men.

Fragrance is not absolutely necessary to the function of a deodorant, and in fact, there are plenty of fragrance free deodorants on the market, which can help prevent contact dermatitis, asthma and allergies in general. It is also important to ask if there is a “masking agent” used to disguise the scent as these too are chemicals and do not remove the fragrance simply block the body’s ability to detect it. No Added Fragrance tells you there are no chemicals or fragrances found in the product.

ContactDermatitus Deodorants Can Cause Allergic Contact Dermatitis but not Herbalix Deodorants

Contact Dermatitus of the skin.

Other research has also pointed out the seriousness of aluminum in most commercial deodorants. A percentage of people who are allergic to aluminum may also experience contact dermatitis when exposed to aluminum in deodorants. Non-aluminum deodorants and antiperspirants and deodorants are safer, according to current research.

It has been found that aluminum-based compounds used as active ingredients in antiperspirants form a temporary plug within the sweat duct, stopping the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface. Some research suggests that these aluminum-based compounds, typically applied frequently and also left on the skin near the breast tissue, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. As estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists believe that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to breast cancer.

Herbalix has formulated its Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant for this reason. For anyone who has been using a commercial deodorant or antiperspirant, simply check the label to see if it contains any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol. These ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms, resulting in irritation, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave an alum salt residual in the underarm.

Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant cleanses away buildup to release waste fluids, encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums, encouraging a reduction in daytime odors.

The Finest in Organic Skin Care Products

July 20th, 2013

No other competitor can make that claim. This represents a distinct and significant market advantage.

According to medical science, and up to now, the field of lymphatic system has had limited research and it is perhaps the most misunderstood system in the body. Though the future is now the focus of research in the next coming years may well be to use sophisticated equipment to explore and capture in real time the lymphatic system and lymphatic fluids. Herbalix is already addressing these concerns. Herbalix Restoratives’ extensive and trail blazing research has revealed new discoveries in this area providing needed resources for doctors and Scientist in the way of topical detox products osmotically targeting the lymphatic system. Herbalix Restoratives, J. P. Durga Research Division continues to work to be a leader in this area.

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.
