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.

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:

• Detox Deodorant
• Geranium Deodorant
• Coriander Kelp Scrub Bar
• Belly Fat Freedom
• Sentinel Breast Crème

The program comes with explicit directions and convenient tracking sheets. Read the 80 Night Lymph Detox Protocol for Women [PDF]

“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.

Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

July 31st, 2014

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet.

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet. A number of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 (Folate), Vitamin C., E & K are found in coriander including traces of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, zinc.

HRCoriander Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

Coriander.

contains antioxidants and has amazing antibacterial activity against germ negative and germ positive bacteria by breaking down cell membranes. Besides its antibacterial effect, the use of coriander oil in antibacterial formulations effectively kills pathogenic bacteria related to food borne diseases and hospital infections. It contains biosorbents effect to absorb liquids and solids: According to a study Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) essential oil: “Its antibacterial activity and mode of action evaluated by flow cytometry”. Filomena Silva, Susan Ferreira, Joao A. Queiroz and Fernanda C. Domingues – Journal of Medical Microbiology (2011), 60, 1479-1486 DO1 1Q10.1099/jmm 0.034157-0 034157 @2011 SGM.

While researching information on coriander, sometimes seemingly unrelated subjects can provide new leads such as The Uptake of Fluoride, Aluminum and Molybdenum By Some Vegetables From Irrigation Water by Arjun L. Khandare., G. Shanker Rao – National Institute of Nutrition (ICMR), J.Hum.Ecol., 19(4):283-288(2006). One of the vegetables used in the study for aluminum salt loading, was coriander. In a graph comparing amaranth and coriander from aluminum in irrigation water, the concentration of aluminum in coriander was 4 times greater compared to the control. The bottom line is that coriander absorbs metal ions from aluminum in water.

In 2005 Herbalix Restoratives sponsored a clinical study. The purpose of the study was to see how coriander works in HR topical Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant®. We arranged for two labs to take tape samples of NCDD and a leading antiperspirant for comparison. The first lab used CuDerm Strippings consisting of 3 each of the NCDD, 3 of the antiperspirant and 2 blank strippings. The CuDerm Strippings were then transferred to a black paper and sent off to a second laboratory to be tested for ICP-MS Spectrometer analysis.

After testing the strips the second lab emailed back to the first lab to inform them that because they had applied the strips on a piece of black paper, the test results showed an abnormal reading of elevated alum from the NCDD over the antiperspirant. How could a deodorant contain this much aluminum? The answer is that all NCDD samples showed the ability to draw the black ink (made from aluminum) from the paper thus became a discovery showing the ability of NCDD to chelate aluminum from an inorganic source.

Below are the numbers that established the breakthrough.

1. Antiperspirants 1. 1,800
2. Negative Control 2. 7,000
3. Antiperspirants 3. 1,550
4. Antiperspirants 4. 1,370
5. Detox Deodorant 5. 115,000
6. Detox Deodorant 6. 120,000
7. Negative Control 7. 34,100
8. Detox Deodorant 8. 112,000

That works out to 70 times more aluminum that the NCDD extracted from the black paper.

Back in 2004 while learning from sources how third world countries used certain seeds to filter water, the idea of adding coriander seed to a deodorant, at that time a novel idea, brought forth an amazing discovery.

In 2006 HR sponsored a clinical trial evaluating subjects for levels of aluminum in the underarm, using the CuDerm tape strips. the first week was used as a baseline without applying any antiperspirant, the second week using antiperspirants and the third week, with the NCDD.

Baseline results gave variations of aluminum levels but all individuals showed asymmetrical loading in the non dominant arm (left and right). The second week using antiperspirants showed spiking in one arm vs the other. The third week, with the NCDD, showed reduction of aluminum in the underarms. Subjects returned to symmetrical levels (minimized the effects of antiperspirants) resulting in below baseline levels of aluminum indicating that NCDD was effectively absorbing aluminum.

Special Note: Baseline readings of aluminum variations in the samples demonstrate the human burden caused by aluminum (coming from air, water, food, antiperspirants, medication). Additional testing for metal loading can include skin as indicated in these studies.

In a follow up clinical trial in 2012, also using human subjects, it was clearly apparent in thermography scans that the NCDD and Sentinel Breast Crème® demonstrated symmetrical release of alum salts present in subjects tested. The asymmetrical loading of alum salts from antiperspirants can lead to health issues especially for women whose breast fluids drain thru the underarms.

These tests provide evidence of the ability for a topical detox with coriander to purge metals from the body.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sweating is Good For You When You Use Detox Deodorant

September 18th, 2012

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

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

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

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

Benefits of Nighttime Detox Cleansing Deodorant

August 5th, 2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Misconceptions About Non-Aluminum Deodorants

December 14th, 2010

According to Dr. Christophe Exley, “There is no difference in ‘safety’ between antiperspirants made of aluminium chlorohydrate (and related salts) and those made of alum (potassium aluminum sulphate), the so-called crystal ‘natural’ products.” He also confirms, “We know from research that aluminum applied under the arm appears in the urine, so it does permeate through the skin.”*

There is a considerable amount of ambiguous and misleading information regarding the compounds Potassium alum and Ammonium alum when used in ‘natural’ products, particularly in relationship to their use in deodorants. Possibly due to misunderstanding or maybe just marketing, many people believe that neither are actually components of aluminum and thus constitute an aluminum-free deodorant. A couple of other misconceptions include the fact that the molecule has a different charge and that it is also too big to be absorbed.

Here is what is true:

1.      The alum in crystal deodorants is either Potassium alum or Ammonium alum — both alums are aluminum in that they are potassium or ammonium salts of aluminum sulphate.

2.       Potassium alum and Ammonium alum used in crystal deodorants are compounds that dissociate/break down with water and/or sweat and will be absorbed under the arm if applied. According to Dr. Exely, “the evidence we have is that a very small proportion of applied Al, probably <0.01 will be absorbed into the bloodstream.”

3.      Once dissolved in the aqueous solution (sweat) the molecule is no longer too big to penetrate the skin.  The aluminum frees from the potassium and exhibits the actions of aluminum and potassium exhibits the actions of potassium. When these alums dissolve they form their constituent parts as was indicated above. The Al3+(aq) could reprecipitate, for example in sweat ducts, as aluminum hydroxide, the form in which the Al is absorbed and enters the bloodstream is not known.

4.      Aluminum bio-accumulates so small amounts do add up and is implicated in a variety of diseased states.

5.      The aluminum charge can change but it still can be absorbed. Some Al will remain as monomeric charged forms while other might form small particles of aluminum hydroxide with little or no charge.

In addition to the confusion about crystal deodorants being natural and aluminum-free, it may prove true that many are neither. “In recent years, the crystal deodorant market has become increasingly saturated with artificial potassium alum and ammonium alum made from synthesizing aluminum hydroxide with sulfuric acid,” according to Verdan, makers of private label crystal deodorants.

When making your deodorant choice, you may want to begin with Herbalix Restoratives™ Nighttime Detox Deodorant to remove any aluminums that may have collected under your arms.  Compliment Detox Deodorant with one of the organic Daytime Deodorants from the company.
