Detoxing an armpit is an excellent solution to cleansing your body from toxins kept in your organism. It may also be a way of protecting your body from cancer. The latest medical research concluded the increased number of breast cancer is originating from underarm cosmetic products applied to this area.
This area contains the most toxins since antiperspirant products are made out of aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, and quaternium 18, among other toxic chemicals. Some of these chemicals act as estrogen hormone and may increase the risk of breast cancer. Most of breast cancer develops as a hormone-dependent cancer whose growth and progression correlates with estrogen level.
The importance of an armpit detoxing
A study from 2007 concluded that women who used aluminum based antiperspirants had their aluminum levels increased in their underarm tissue. This study was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry 2007 issue. These women also underwent mastectomies and were breast-cancer treated patients.
It is not only the aluminum the scientists are suspicious about – there is the paraben also, which is known for its bad properties. They are known for mimicking estrogen and were found inside the autopsied breast tumors, the research had shown.
„Parabens are used as preservatives in thousands of cosmetic, food, and pharmaceutical products, but this is the first study to show their accumulation in human tissues. It demonstrates that if people are exposed to these chemicals, then the chemicals will accumulate in their bodies.” Dr. Darbre commented on the study.
As we all know, sweating is very important and also healthy function of our body. If we clog our underarm pores with antiperspirants, our lymph system may be blocked and lymph nodes start to appear. This is the way we keep the toxins in our system, which is really bad.
Here’s the thing we can all do to prevent this from happening: we can detox our armpits by ourselves.
- 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar
- 3 drops Rosemary essential oil
- 5 drops Cilantro essential oil
- 1 tablespoon bentonite clay
How to prepare it:
Mix the vinegar with clay in a bowl and add some essential oils. The mix should be creamy-like. Spread it over one arm pit and let it drive, like that.
Rinse after 20 minutes. You may want to repeat this process. Drink a lot water especially while doing this, to flush all those toxins.
