Aluminium is a source of heavy metal toxicity due to commonly used household items. Unlike other trace elements, the human body does not need aluminium. We consume low levels of aluminium in foods, but when we are exposed to repeated higher quantities the body begins to store it. Higher doses of aluminium builds up in the body after cooking with aluminium foil or pans, consuming antacids, receiving vaccines, drinking canned soda or beer and applying aluminium containing deodorants. When aluminium can not be processed by the body properly so it builds up in the brain, kidneys, liver, lungs and thyroid creating a platform for disease processes. The effects of heavy metal buildup in the body associated with aluminium has been well-documented and is shown to cause oxidative stress on the central nervous system, leading to conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and bone demineralization. Aluminium in deodorant is also closely linked with the development of breast cancer.
Here are ways to eliminate aluminum from your daily routine.
Step 1: Do not cook with aluminum foil or pans.
Step 2: Stop consuming products that have aluminium additives. Many antacids contain Aluminium Hydroxide and Magnesium Hydroxide.
Step 3: Stop smearing aluminium in your arm pits in the form of deodorant. It is absorbed transdermally. Get Aluminum free deodorants such as natural crystal rock available online or at stores like Clarks or Sprouts.
Step 4. Do a heavy metal detox.
