Not My Usual Post

IMG_3005

I’ve learned from a doctor I’ve been seeing that I have a build up of plastic and metals in my body.   What???!!!  Anyhow, I have long been concerned about the apparent link between the aluminum in canned drinks and antiperspirants and Alzheimer’s disease.  Well, I gave up canned drinks years ago, but wasn’t willing to stink.  My doctor told me that he uses a crystal that he applies while his pits are still damp.   He always smells fresh, so I decided to investigate.  Sure enough, I found the product online.  It only cost about $5 and is said to last a year!!!   It works by keeping the bacteria that causes body odor from forming when we sweat.

I’ve been using it everyday with my normal level of activity, and have been very pleased.  It also feels good to know that I am not applying something that could harm me.  I did, however, use this product on a day where I had to do vigorous activity for a few hours.  I don’t think it held up to high demands.  So, I’ve decided to use this crystal for everyday, and my usual “poison” when I’m in danger of “offending” due to athletic activity.  Just thought I’d pass this along, in case any of you have the same concerns about aluminum exposure:)

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 10, 16 and 23. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
