As stated to many, we have been living with the idea that synthetic antiperspirants are supposed to be our normal everyday living...but is it? Our bodies are meant to sweat to release the toxins in our system and regular our body temperature, hence why sickness is so prevalent today.
We have to break the mold on that concept and get back to sweating however with drinking alot of water, monitor our eating habits, exercise, detoxing the body and sleep all play a factor in our overall health.
Some information on the different glands and their purpose in our bodies...
There are two kinds of sweat glands in the human body:
- Eccrine glands – a type of simple sweat gland that is located in almost all areas where there is skin. They produce sweat that reaches the skin’s surface via coiled ducts (tubes). When sweat evaporates from the skin the body is cooled. Eccrine glands are responsible for regulating our body’s temperature.
- Apocrine glands – these glands are found in the breasts, genital area, eyelids, armpits and ear. In the breasts they secrete fat droplets into breast milk. In the ear they help form earwax. Apocrine glands in skin and the eyelids are sweat glands.
Most of the apocrine glands in the skin are located in the groin, armpits and around the nipples of the breast. Apocrine glands in the skin usually have an odor; they are scent glands. Most axillary, or armpit, sweat is odorless, and comes from the eccrine glands. The small amount of apocrine secretion in the sweat, however, causes the problem. Most medical sources will agree that apocrine sweat is odorless, but develops a scent when broken down and mixed with bacteria in on the skin. This smell is mostly due to a chemical (3-methyl-2-hexenoic acid) that the bacteria release when combined with sweat.
The apocrine glands are mainly responsible for body odor because the sweat they produce is high in protein which bacteria can break down easily. The eccrine glands produce sweat which is high in salt, making it harder for bacteria to break down the protein. In other words, a lot of our B.O. (body odor) comes from the sweat produced by our apocrine glands.
So we need to start somewhere to be consciously aware and vigilant to be healthier in these times.
When our "pits" are so used to the synthetic antiperspirants, we have to detox them to unclog the pores to start back to our normal bodily function to sweat. So please review the product "STEPHS UNDERARM DETOX", that is the first step, everyone's results will be different, it takes approximately 30 to 60 days to see progress some advise as short as 2 weeks. so temper your progress and do not get discourage keep pushing.
