Armpit Detox: Why You Need One and How To Do it
Did you know that if you’re a man you have a 50% chance of developing cancer in your life time and if you’re a woman you have a 33% chance of developing cancer? These rates are high already and continue to keep rising every year. Its seems as if we’re spending so much money on trying to cure it and very little money on preventing the cause. We need to talk about the reasons why cancer rates continue to rise and lifestyle changes can we all make to fight this disease.
Cancer is caused by physical carcinogens, chemical carcinogens, and biological carcinogens, all of which we surround ourselves with on a daily basis. These “cell transformers,” in the form of food, cosmetics, health care products, and more, have become ‘normal’ for us. It’s time to start questioning the environment we choose to surround ourselves with if we want to get to the bottom of why disease is so excessive and uncontrollable.
One great example is cosmetics and other product we place on our skin like deodorant. In 2007, a study was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, the researcher tested breast samples from 17 breast cancer patients who had gone through mastectomies. These women have been using antiperspirants, which contained aluminum, and the researcher discovered this aluminum in their other breast tissue. The study explained that the amount of aluminum was a lot higher around their underarm than in the middle of their breast.
This is quite alarming, as the higher incidence of tumors in the upper outer quadrant of the breast seems to support the contention that aluminum-containing antiperspirants are contributing to breast cancer, even though the identification of a mechanism of antiperspirant-induced breast cancer remains elusive.
Aluminum is experimentally shown neurotoxin that is link to other diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. There are so many studies that have reviewed Aluminum’s possible toxic effects and it’s clear that it has been for a long time:
This study also discovered that aluminum and carbonyl levels demonstrate a great amount of positive linear correlation. Studies have already confirmed that plasma levels of protein carbonyls is able to increase the risk of breast cancer.
It’s also noteworthy to mention the fact that aluminum salts are used in antiperspirants and have been link to breast cancer incidence in Western societies. Another previous study created an outline on how aluminum is not physiological component of the breast, but it has been measured in human breast tissue it has all been found in breast cysts fluids at levels that are found in blood serum and milk.
Below is a video of aluminum from Dr. Christopher Exley, who is a professor in Bioorganic Chemistry at Keele University and Honorary Professor at UHI Millennium Institute. He is widely known as the world’s top expert on aluminum toxicity.
There are many antiperspirants that also contain triclosan, which has been recently viral in alternative media after a study was published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology that discovered that this chemical is linked to cancer cell growth. It’s not just aluminum that you need to be careful for in antiperspirants. Triclosan easily gets into the body through the skin and can interfere with hormone function (endocrine disruption).Wait it doesnt end there; a study was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives in 2008 that discovered the triclosn in urine from 75% of people who were tested (2,517 people age six or older).
Colgate Total toothpaste contains triclosan, they were recently outed for their use of the chemical, along with the FDA for hiding decades old documents showing it to be carcinogenic.
How To Prevent Breast Cancer Through An Armpit Detox
- Holistic Solutions/Ingredients
One common way people seem to detox their armpit area is with the use of this recipe: 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar, 3 drops of rosemary essential oil, 5 drops of cilantro essential oil, and one tablespoon of bentonite clay.
From here, you mix ACV and the clay in a glass bowl, then add the essential oils to the point where it looks smooth, like sour cream.
Then you spread a thin layer of this mixture on your armpit and leave it for a few minutes.
After that, rinse and repeat daily until the odor subsides. It’s also a good idea to drink plenty of water, because the body needs to flush out all of those toxins.
The best way to prevent toxic overload here is to simply be more cautious of the products you purchase and what they contain.
