Aluminum Zirconium....how can effect be undone?
« on: 09/06/2010 07:57:22 »
I have been using anti-perspirants for about 5 years.
Recently, someone pointed out that Aluminum Zirconium....is actually a toxin (it damages the nervous system in some way)...

Now that I think about it...my hands recently started shaking (have you ever seen an old man's shivering hands?) Well it's sort of like that but not as bad (yet).
If Aluminum Zirconium has IN FACT caused damage....(casuing my hands to tremble slightly)....how can i possible undo or fix that damage? I hope it does not sound silly...

There are many possible reasons for shaking like that. See a doctor.

Everyone has a tremor to some degree. For example, when held outstretched, the hands usually tremble slightly. Such slight, rapid tremor, called physiologic tremor, is normal and reflects the precise moment-by-moment control of muscles by nerves. In most people, the tremor is too slight to be noticed.

Factors that can make a normal tremor more noticeable include* stress, anxiety, fatigue, withdrawal of alcohol or certain other drugs (such as opioids), an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), consumption of caffeine, and use of certain drugs ...

Recurrent hypoglycemia may be prevented by reversing or removing the underlying cause, by increasing the frequency of meals
