Many clinical studies said many breast cancer cases are noted in the upper quadrant of the breast, outer side, the area close to the armpit and exposed to deodorants. The toxins get seeped into the skin and the tissue that is adipose.
So, to detox the armpits is a great way to prevent breast illness risks and cancer. Mostly, this cancer
occurs due to hormone changes and a tumor starts to grow – this is linked to the estrogen especially. Cosmetics and deodorants have many toxic chemicals (parabens, triclosan, propylene glycol, aluminum chlorohydrate, DEA, TEA, FD&C coloring, quaternium 18). Some imitate the estrogen and increase cancer risk.
The Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry stated a study in 2007 with 17 cancer patients that had mastectomies. Results were that women who used deodorants had more aluminum in that outer breast area. This deposit of aluminum was close to the armpit rather than the breast middle. Experts even say that parabens make more cancer risk due to imitation of estrogen and parabens were seen in the tumor tissue autopsy.
The paraben is a sort of a preservative for cosmetics, foods and even meds and this was the first study to pinpoint it in the human tissue. It shows that when we are exposed to this, chemicals pile up inside us, said Dr. Darbre.
We have to keep in mind that sweating is normal and the sweat has chemicals that ward off diseases. It is crucial to have the pores opened and not clogged with deodorants. Under the skin in the armpit there is a lymph nodes cluster that must fight foreign cells.
The detox of the armpit helps the body to unclog pores and remove toxins from the inside and chemical residue too from the armpits.
- 3 drops rosemary oil
- 1 tbsp ACV
- 1 tbsp bentonite clay
- 5 drops Cilantro oil
In one glass bowl mix the ACV and the clay and in the end add the oils. You get smooth mix, something like sour cream.
Put one thin layer on the armpit to sit for few minutes, then rinse. This can be done daily until the odor is no longer noticed and you won’t need chemical deodorants.
Also remember, the body must remove toxins with your help sometimes, so drink a lot of water during this detox.
