Try going 24 hours with no deodorant. If you can’t stand the smell from the outside, just imagine what your body smells like on the inside!
Armpits are designed to sweat. I know that may sound insanely simple, because everybody knows that armpits sweat, but I’m saying that armpits are supposed to perspire. Perspiring is a natural function of the human body primarily to regulate your body temperature, but there’s more to it than just cooling your body through perspiration. Another vital function of the sweat glands in your armpits is to excrete toxins from your body.
That’s why sweating is an important part of maintaining optimum physical health.
You have to give your body a chance to get rid of various toxins through a variety of metabolic processes. Those include urination, passing fecal matter, exhaling carbon dioxide and other toxins through the lungs, and, of course, eliminating toxins through the skin. The skin is after all, your body’s largest organ.
Yet people go to great lengths to prevent their armpits from sweating. Most people do this to prevent body odour, not understanding that body odour and sweating are two different things.
Sweating is natural, body odour is NOT.
The real cause of armpit odour is the intentional excretion of horrible toxins that your body is trying to get rid of.
It as simple as: What comes out of your body reflects what you put in!!
The way to eliminate body odor, then, is not to mask it with unhealthful deodorant products containing toxic chemicals and derivatives of heavy metals like aluminum and propylene glycol, but rather to clean up your body from the inside out. In other words, if your armpits have a horrible raunchy smell, that’s an indication that your diet needs some adjusting.
Antiperspirants may leave the outside of the body smelling fresh and clean – but inside, the toxins that would have escaped the body in the sweat have nowhere to go because you block the exit door and force those toxins to stay in your system! The problem with deodorants and antiperspirants is not only the aluminum or propylene glycol, but how it works to reduce sweat and smelly odors. Aluminum compounds, are key ingredients in almost every antiperspirant. They are powerful astringents that close pores, stopping sweat and odor from escaping the body. For this reason, antiperspirants are linked to problems with the sweat glands and lymph glands in and around the underarms. What’s more, “antiperspirants are designed to be absorbed “; the aluminum and many other chemicals are taken into the body and into the blood, eventually affecting everything, especially the endocrine and lymphatic systems, causing various health issues like Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, that may not even seem related.
If it still seems like a task that cannot be endeavored, at least start by choosing less chemicalized deodorants. Make sure to read the ingredients very carefully. AVOID any deodorant that contains any of the following chemicals in any form;
