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. We now have cause for concern as we have common access to too many sources of aluminum and are witness to skyrocketing numbers of unexplained diseases. Your defense is to identify the sources you allow and limit your 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 long-term illness.
The quick fix is to stop using antiperspirant! The change is not seamless. Deodorant by definition will not eliminate perspiration, which, by the way, is a tremendous detoxification process for the body. It will, however, remove any potential odor.
