I geared up mentally for the raw food that we’ve been eating all week. I got the kids prepared. I got excited to see the changes in health for my son with the lung issues, for my son with the skin issues and the general crankiness and sleeping trouble. I was totally psyched for these darn parasites to leave us.
And, of course, if I’m going to try to get the toxins OUT of me, I want to do what I can to avoid putting them INTO me. Unfortunately, I did not consider what that would mean when it was time to get dressed in the morning, and I reach for my anti-perspirant and……WHOOPS.
That’s right. I still use anti-perspirant. And I’ve been thinking about quitting. But, I was NOT planning to quit in the middle of the summer!
In case you are wondering why I’d stop using anti-perspirant, it’s mostly because of the aluminum. Aluminum is toxic stuff that’s been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and other brain disorders.
Katie at the Simple Organic had a natural deoderant challenge a little while back. It intrigued me. She even had a follow up with good news that was encouraging; I was definitely inspired to try it myself. Next winter.
Umm….enter the detox time. I was NOT prepared for this. So, although I would like to try making my own deoderant, I just have too much on my plate right now. So, I’ve been using a generic version of Gold Bond Medicated Body Powder. I’ve been putting it on in the morning, and again in the afternoon. It’s not too bad. It does have talc in it, which is also not without problems. But, it’s better than the aluminum, and it’s doing the job.
Have you ever considered going natural on the stink prevention? What’s your situation?
