- How to reduce your Breast Cancer Risk
Do you know that some of the most dangerous chemicals that we put on our body are in the form of antiperspirants? Yet daily, even our children are putting chemicals on their body and right in the area where the major lymphatic glands are to be found – no wonder there is so much breast cancer!
You even have to watch out for those rocks sold as “aluminium-free natural deodorant”. You rub the rock under your arms. It works because the rock is made of magnesium-aluminium silicate!
Here is an alternative that will not just act as a natural deodorant, but will naturally detoxify the body, stimulate the immune system and also help the body to get rid of petro-chemicals that may already be stored in your organs.
Note: Those of you who have been using antiperspirants and deodorants for a long time may take some time to adjust, so please hang in there and let your body heal. Sometimes people sweat more than they used to (this should rectify in a short while) as the essential oils clean out the lymphatic system and allow the body to detoxify. So re-apply the deodorant as often as is necessary.
