Your skin is your largest organ and it serves an important role just like any other body organ. I’m getting a little tired of modern science making modifications to a miraculous design system…the human body. We treat organs like spare parts and we don’t think twice about radical treatment for minor inconveniences. Sorry folks…we’re supposed to sweat! I don’t like it any more than you do but I recognize how important sweating is to the human body.
Johns Hopkins recently developed a microwave thermolysis procedure to treat “excessive” sweating. Apparently these scientific experts don’t think sweating has a purpose OR they’re just willing to offer it to you at the right price regardless of the long-term consequences (that’s certainly nothing new).
Just in case you’re tempted to microwave your sweat glands, here’s a reminder of the importance of sweating:
- Sweating helps maintain proper temperature and keep you from overheating
- Sweating helps expel toxins, which supports proper immune function and helps prevent diseases related to toxic overload
- Sweating helps kill viruses and bacteria that cannot survive in temperatures above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit
- Sweating helps clean the pores…since your skin is your biggest organ, clean pores is a big deal!
We are born with anywhere between 2 million and 4 million sweat glands and the number of glands you have will determine, in part, how much you sweat. I think 2 to 4 million of anything is an indicator that it’s a pretty big deal! While women generally have more sweat glands than men, men’s glands tend to be more active and produce more sweat.
Here is important input from Dr. Mercola on the topic of sweating and the release of toxins:
One of the most ubiquitous chemical contaminants of the 21st century is BPA. BPA is an endocrine disrupter, which means it mimics or interferes with your body’s hormones and “disrupts” your endocrine system. The glands of your endocrine system and the hormones they release are instrumental in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, as well as sexual function and reproductive processes.
Some of the greatest concern surrounds early-life, in utero exposure to BPA, which can lead to chromosomal errors in your developing fetus, causing spontaneous miscarriages and genetic damage. But evidence is also very strong showing these chemicals are influencing adults and children, too, and leading to decreased sperm quality, early puberty, stimulation of mammary gland development, disrupted reproductive cycles and ovarian dysfunction, cancer, and heart disease, among numerous other health problems.
Research has shown that BPA is often detected in human sweat, sometimes even when it is not found in blood or urine testing. The study concluded that not only should sweat analysis be considered as a tool for monitoring bioaccumulation of BPA, but also that induced sweating may be a potential method of elimination for this widespread toxin
So you see? Sweating serves a very healthy purpose!
I have learned a lot about issues pertaining to health, wellness and toxins over the past couple of years and I’m doing my best to give my body what it needs to sustain health. It’s one thing to sustain life. It’s a whole different ballgame to sustain health!
In addition to drinking ionized, alkalized, electrically charged, restructured water to hydrate and flush out toxins, I’ve traded deodorant for 2.5 pH water instead. Water at this pH level kills bacteria (the culprit behind body odor) better than anything you have in your cleaning or beauty supply arsenal and yet; it’s toxin free. Go
