Herbalix Restoratives to Attend Ninth Keele Meeting on Aluminum

First of Its Kind Non-Aluminum Detox Deodorant Is Formulated to Attract, Absorb and Cleanse Bacterium and Metal Ions, Including Aluminum, From the Underarms

PORT LUDLOW, WA--(Marketwire - January 13, 2011) - Herbalix Restoratives, LLC today announced the company will attend the Ninth Keele Meeting, "Aluminium and Life: Living in the Aluminium Age," Saturday, February 19 to Wednesday February 23, 2011 at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. The most important platform for presentation of research into all fields of aluminium, the Ninth Keele Meeting will be presented by the Birchall Centre, Keele University, and hosted by McMaster University and Ryerson University.

Herbalix Restoratives, through its extensive research of the underarm (axilla) and aluminum, has developed the first of its kind non-aluminum deodorant called the Detox Cleansing Deodorant™ for nighttime use, made with certified organic ingredients. Formulated to attract, absorb and cleanse bacterium and metal ions, including aluminum, from the underarms, detoxifying ingredients work at night and provide six to eight hours of safe and efficient absorption of accumulated debris and odors.

Aluminum is the third most abundant element within the crust of the earth, yet is not essential to plant life, animals or human beings. In fact, aluminum is arguably one of the world's most serious ecotoxicants, and has a role in limiting plant growth in acid sulphate soils.

The organizers of the Keele Meeting say, "We are aware of human conditions, such as dialysis encephalopathy and osteomalacia, which are caused by exposure to aluminium, and yet in spite of decades of sound scientific evidence to the contrary we largely in the main consider human exposure to aluminium to be benign."

People are exposed to toxins every day of their lives. What they don't breathe, they get in food, water and even in the products they choose to put on their bodies. Some of these toxins are filtered through the body's waste but some are not released as easily and are stored in the body; specifically in one area -- the underarms.

Even if a person doesn't use deodorants or antiperspirants, aluminum is abundant in our world, found in air, food, water, fertilizer, body care products, automobiles, medicines (vaccines), etc. In addition, numerous studies have shown that various ingredients in everyday household products, and even personal care items, are linked to everything from cancer to learning deficits, according to the Environmental Working Group.

With a growing body of new scientific research and a rising health-conscious public, the next generation of underarm health may be directed toward a natural organic deodorant that will safely absorb accumulated aluminum from antiperspirants, and various other sources, as well as other metal ions that may be stored in the glands under the arms.

There is an ongoing debate about how many toxins are released during the perspiration process. Antiperspirants are regulated as drugs because they change the physiological process of the body, acting like little 'plugs' to stop sweat -- which also alters the natural temperature control and toxic releasing mechanism of the body. Aluminum (and alums) is one of the active ingredients in antiperspirants and is used in a variety of products. The National Institute of Health classifies aluminum as a neurotoxin. Numerous studies have shown a direct connection between aluminum and Alzheimer's as well as breast cancer.

"Humans perspire for a reason, yet most people apply deodorants or antiperspirants to prevent odor and suppress sweat," according to Michael Fessler, co-founder of Herbalix Restoratives, LLC. "Antiperspirants contain aluminum as the active ingredient and are classified as drugs because they change the physiological process of the body, acting like little 'plugs' to stop sweat. Suppressing sweat encourages the backup of bacteria and may affect the flow of lymph fluids." 

Herbalix Restoratives Detox Cleansing Deodorant helps widen the sweat ducts under the arms allowing the release of impeded waste fluids, alkalizes underarm pH, allows for healthy lymphatic flow, and removes all types of aluminums, while encouraging a reduction in daytime odors. 

Furthermore, deodorants work differently than antiperspirants; they don't actually prevent sweat but work by eradicating the bacteria, thus neutralizing the smell of sweat. However, various forms of alums and other chemicals are found in many deodorants. Crystal deodorant stones claim to be natural and aluminum-free. Scientists tell us they are not aluminum-free, as they are made of either potassium alum or ammonium alum -- and are categorized as aluminum according to aluminum manufacturers.

According to Dr. Christopher Exley, an international authority on aluminum, "There is no difference in 'safety' between antiperspirants made of aluminium chlorohydrate (and related salts) and those made of alum (potassium aluminium sulphate), the so-called crystal 'natural' products." He also confirms, "We know from research that aluminum applied under the arm appears in the urine, so it does permeate through the skin."
