Why We Love To Sweat (And You Should Too!)

Posted by

In many cultures around the world perspiration was always regarded for its positive health effects. The use of sweat lodges, bath houses, and steam rooms were used extensively because perspiration was known to increase metabolism and allow for the release of toxins stored up in the body.

Unfortunately, the cosmetic industry has done a great job of turning the natural process of perspiration into a negative image problem that must be solved. And they’ve been extremely successful. Each year, the antiperspirant industry rakes in over $18 Billion in world wide sales. It’s a brilliant strategy if you think about it. Point to a natural process of the human body - something everyone experiences - call it unattractive, and provide them with a solution. Let the profits roll in.

Problem is, interfering with the body’s natural processes can carry significant risks... The question is whether or not those risks are worth taking. Since the health of you and your family isn’t something to take lightly, let’s start at the beginning and consider your options.

Most commercial antiperspirants work in two ways:

  • They stop you from perspiring
  • They kill the bacteria that cause bad odors

Natural toxins such as urea, and unnatural toxins created by skin care products and various foods, build up in the body, and are filtered out by traveling through the bloodstream to the lymphatic system. The lymph nodes, located in the underarm area, expel the toxic substances out of the body in the form of perspiration.

Obviously, stopping the process of perspiration will result in the accumulation of these toxic substances in the body. The way antiperspirants work is that the active ingredient, which is an aluminum based compound, actually plugs the sweat ducts, and prevents the expulsion of perspiration from the body. With nowhere to go, toxins build up in the body, and over time can create significant health problems. In fact, antiperspirants have been linked to breast cancer and other chronic health conditions.

An Alternative

The question many people have is, “If I stop using antiperspirants, will I stink?” The truth is that perspiration itself is odorless. However, the bacteria in your underarms act on it to produce an unpleasant odor. Two separate issues. A deodorant allows the body to expel dangerous toxins, but addresses the bacteria that cause bad odors therefore ensuring that your underarms remain fresh. Deodorants also contain attractive fragrances designed to protect against unpleasant odors.

With that in mind, it’s important to understand that not all deodorants are created equal. Many commercial deodorants contain harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritations and lead to additional health concerns.

However, all is not lost. Ruma Organics All Natural Deodorant is made from completely natural ingredients. There are no artificial perfumes or alcohol based compounds added to the deodorant. Unlike many paraben-based deodorants, which simply mask odor with perfumes, Ruma Organics All-Natural Deodorant quickly absorbs into your skin, kills odor-causing bacteria, and actually prevents odor from forming in the first place.

Your choice

At the end of the day, you’re left with a serious choice. Although many people feel that they’re invincible to health concerns, you simply can’t argue that our culture is becoming increasingly unhealthy as we trade natural products people have used for hundreds or thousands of years with dangerous man made chemicals. It’s true that with an organic deodorant you’ll be more inclined to perspire during strenuous activity. But rather than viewing this as a cosmetic problem, view it as a healthy choice. Don’t be fooled by big industry that stands to make billions by shaping your self image. Take control of your identity and make healthier choices before you’re faced with a nightmarish diagnosis.

With Ruma Organics All Natural Deodorant, you will no longer have to worry about bad odor or place yourself at risk of developing many health issues such as breast cancer. It’s really a simple choice between long term health problems and an all-natural solution!
