deodorant masterclass

Detox Your Life
deodorant masterclass
The Red Tea Detox

To start, let’s have a quick chat about the human microbiome. Every part of the human body lives in harmony with trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. We’ve all learned it’s important to have healthy gut bacteria (shoutout to probiotics!), but did you know there’s a whole ecosystem topically on your skin keeping everything humming along? Everything is in a delicate balance.

What does this have to do with deodorant? So, your sweat is basically odorless. What makes it stinky is a specific type of bacteria it comes in contact with that thrives in pits that have been thrown out of whack by harsh soaps and cleansers, or other factors like stress, hormones, and diet. This bacteria interacts with sweat and produces thioalcohols that have a pungent, oniony aroma.

 

KEEP IT CLEAN

Conventional deodorants rely on a variety of ingredients—they basically wipe out all underarm bacteria (the good and the bad) with ingredients like triclosan, cover up unpleasant smells with synthetic fragrance and phthalates, provide softness with propylene glycol, and are preserved with estrogen mimicking parabens.

Antiperspirants take it a step further by using aluminum compounds (specifically aluminum chlorohydrate) that work by forming a chemical reaction with the water in sweat to form a physical plug. This is deposited in the sweat duct producing a blockage wherever you apply it.

Because the underarm area is packed with sweat glands and hormone receptors, there have been various studies researching whether conventional deodorants and antiperspirants are linked to serious health issues like Alzheimer’s disease or breast cancer. While the results are still being debated, experts do agree that using these products disturb our microbiome, which leaves us susceptible to more pathogens. There is ongoing research about the effects of conventional deodorants and antiperspirants.

Natural deodorants rely on a variety of clays, minerals, plants, and essential oils to absorb excess moisture and neutralize odor-causing bacteria. There is no such thing as an all-natural antiperspirant because it’s important to let your body sweat naturally. But remember, no funky bacteria, no funky smell! Once your body adjusts, natural deodorants can you keep you fresh and keep wetness to a minimum.

 

HOW TO MAKE THE SWITCH

Switching to natural deodorant can feel daunting. It’s common for people to try a natural deodorant for a few days, feel super smelly and extra sweaty, and give up. When you’ve been using conventional products for years, your glands and pores are clogged, and the microbiome is out of balance. It can take a few weeks to detox your pits and normalize.

During the transition we recommend keeping your underarms extra clean with something purifying like a charcoal soap bar, or a detox kit, wearing natural fiber clothing for breathability, and eating clean. It can take 2-5 weeks, but we promise it’s worth it.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE

Because body chemistry is so personal, unfortunately your best friend’s favorite natural deodorant might not work for you. Once you get through the initial detox period, sometimes it’s a matter of trial and error before you find your holy grail formula.

CREAM

Many of the original natural deodorants are creams in jars. You can have a softer, more spreadable formula in a jar, and just a small amount is needed. Just apply a pea-sized dot to clean pits post-shower.

STICK

In recent years, more formulas have become available in a stick form. These are great for on-the-go application. The textures vary greatly brand to brand.

LIQUID

Some formulas come in a spray or roll-on. These deodorants are more lightweight, and might be a good choice if you want something totally clear.

 

WHAT ABOUT SENSITIVITIES?

A key ingredient in a lot of natural deodorants is sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), because it is extremely effective. While many people are fine with this, a small number of people may be sensitive to it. If you aren’t sure, we advise doing a patch test before using all over. A wash of apple cider vinegar before application may help. If not, we advise using a baking soda-free formula.  Some sensitivities take a week or more to surface, and may manifest as dryness or itchiness. Luckily, there are plenty of baking soda free options to choose from (see the deodorant shopping guide below).

You can also decrease sensitivity by shaving your armpits the night before applying deodorant. Freshly shaved armpits are more sensitive in general.

The Red Tea Detox

The moringa tree is native to regions near and around the Himalayan mountains. It thrives on little water in areas of drought, making it an optimal plant for hotter, drier climates. In countries like India and The Philippines, moringa leaves are used as a natural preservative in foods, most likely because of the high antioxidant content. Moringa oleifera has been used for hundreds of years both medicinally and as food.

You can buy moringa leaves ground into a powder, just like matcha powder. It looks like matcha, smells somewhat like matcha (just a tad more pungent) and dissolves nicely with water. It has a slightly bitter, grassy flavour, which the raw honey balances out nicely.

This latté is incredibly easy to make. It’s a great summer sipper, giving you a dose of nutrients and antioxidants that blend nicely with the creamy almond milk and touch of honey.

HEALTH BENEFITS

A good source of calcium, potassium and iron. Rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, which plays a role in collagen synthesis High in protein Contains the flavonoids kaempferol and quercetin, which has been shown to inhibit histamine release from mast cells Caffeine-free

*Note: Moringa has not been cleared for pregnancy yet, so do not consume if pregnant.

 

Dairy-free, vegan-optional, gluten-free

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2 tsp moringa powder 2 teaspoons raw honey or to taste (or stevia, maple syrup, coconut sugar) 1/4 cup hot (not boiling) water ice 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

Outsmart The WADA Authorities

Hair Follicle Detox Methods
Outsmart The WADA Authorities
The Red Tea Detox

You can now outsmart the WADA authorities by using a technique that removes all traces of drugs from your body before you go for a drug test. You might be wondering that there is nothing new about it, as remnants of drugs do not remain in the system if you stop taking them a fortnight before the test date, and drink lots of water, which helps to flush out the toxins in your body when you urinate. Some athletes also use fake urine to pass the drug test successfully. However, you might find yourself in a dilemma if you purchase fake urine from unreliable sources and the consistency of the fluid make by mixing the powder with water does not match the specific gravity, temperature, and color of human urine.

If this is not enough, certain drugs remain in the system for more than 15 days. You can depend on “drug test kits” to ascertain whether your urine contains traces of drugs and take detoxifying agents to remove them from your system. However, this detoxification process takes time and will not work if you try it a couple of days prior to the test. However, there is no reason for you to be overjoyed if your urine sample tests negative, as WADA has started using advanced techniques to detect the presence of drugs in the human body. Nowadays, they pluck a couple of hairs from the scalp or chest of the athlete concerned and use it to conduct a hair follicle test, which is much more sensitive than urine tests. In addition, drug traces remain in the hair follicles up to 90 days after you have stopped taking drugs. Does this imply that you have to skip the drug test procedure because you are not sure whether you will successfully pass the hair follicle drug detection method? Do not worry as long as you have 15 days or so in hand before the drug text day.

Detox shampoos
Search online for detoxification shampoos. You will find many online stores offering them for sale. Ensure that you purchase the shampoo from a reliable online shop. Apply this shampoo on your scalp and rub the same vigorously so that the shampoo penetrates inside your scalp and reaches the root of your hair. Once it does so, it will remove all traces of toxic substances from your hair follicles. Repeat this procedure for a minimum of 15 days for the best results.

Passing A Drug Test

Hair Follicle Detox Methods
Passing A Drug Test
The Red Tea Detox

It is necessary to pass a drug test. If you fail a pre-employment drug test, you will not get a job. Failing a random drug test can lead to suspension or job loss.

An employee who fails a drug test for the first time will get a warning letter. Failing for the second or third time will lead to firing.

Just Avoid Drugs

The easiest way to pass a drug test is to avoid drugs. Using drugs does not have any benefit. Actually, it has many disadvantages. First, it affects health. Secondly, it costs a lot of money. Drug abuse is an expensive habit.

Drug use when at a campus is simply experimentation. Most young people like to experiment. However, for an employed person, drug use does not make any sense. Employees should avoid drugs for the sake of career progress.

Drug abuse will leave you with little time for doing work-related activities. You will be smoking weed and drinking alcohol during your free time. Binge drinking will leave you with a hangover. This might make you fail to attend work or to have lower productivity at work.

You should totally avoid dangerous drugs like marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. Marijuana is a gateway drug. It leads to other addictions. If you have to consume alcohol, you should limit your consumption.

Detox Your Body before a Pre-Employment Drug Test

Finding a job is important. You need a job so that to attain financial independence. Everyone needs money.

You will not find any job if you fail drug tests. Nowadays, many employers normally have a drug-testing program.

Before undergoing a drug test, you need to detox your body. If a hair follicle test will happen, you should use an aloe rid shampoo during the detoxification period. This will remove drug metabolites from your hair.

A hair follicle test will involve removing a patch of your hair and testing it. For this test to be done, you need to have long hair. Alternatively, a urine test will happen. This will involve testing a urine sample.

Detoxifying for a urine test involves having a healthy diet the period before the test. You need to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid junk food. You should also drink at least one liter of water in a day. Exercising should be part of the detoxification process. Aerobic exercises are the best since they will make you sweat. When you sweat, drug metabolites expel from your body.

The Bottom-Line

Passing a drug test keeps you employed. An employer can undertake a drug test if there is reasonable suspicion that an employee is abusing drugs.
