Our skin is our largest organ. Every thing that is placed on our skin is absorbed and processed by our body. Therefore, I highly recommend NOT to put anything on your skin, hair or nails that you would NOT eat. This includes deodorant, hair products, nail polish, lotions, and even laundry detergents and fabric softeners. All of these products have to be processed and detoxified by our bodies. If the body is in a state of un-health then any of these items can overburden the bodies detoxification system leading to unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms are different for each person and vary based on the state of un-health and the type of toxin exposure.
At Back to Health Functional Medicine we research the top natural brands and offer simple DIY recipes for a multitude of products from deodorant to toothpaste which are healthier and can usually be made a fraction of the cost of the toxin-laden alternative - it's a win-win!
