The issue of deodorant seems unimportant,
but we know enough about autoimmune disease,
cancer, dementia, Parkinson's, autism and
Alzheimer's to take a more cautious look
Antiperspirants contain Aluminum.
Your body was not designed to store heavy metals.
The problem is that aluminum has now infiltrated manufacturing, vaccines, medicines, antacids, antiperspirant, cosmetics and our food supply via processing, frozen meal trays, foil and cans. With so much casual access to sources of aluminum, we need to be concerned about limiting our exposure.
Replacing your antiperspirant with a clean, homemade deodorant is a good way to reduce your daily aluminum intake immediately. All antiperspirants contains aluminum, a known neurotoxin. You faithfully apply it to your underarm which houses your lymph nodes, a part of your circulatory system. Your skin absorbs the aluminum along with the product and any other chemicals it holds. When there is more toxicity than the body can safely detox, it will be stored in the body which is a recipe for illness somewhere is your future.
The quick fix is easy. Just stop using antiperspirant, but the change is not seamless.
We've gotten used to being sweat-free and deodorant just will not do what a toxic product can do when it comes to keeping you dry. So you have to choose. If you can get used to sweating naturally a homemade deodorant will keep you order free and that is a really easy start to cleaning up your body.
