Confessions from a Personal Trainer: My body sends me signals through my armpits

Where every Tuesday: I confess.

Confession: My body sends me signals through my armpits. (see above)

I have been using natural deodorant for almost 3 years now. When I first transitioned to it I noticed I was super smelly and super sweaty. Now there will be times that I don’t even need deodorant and it’s not a huge crisis if I forget.

Traditional, typical deodorant clogs up your pores and toxins and bacteria build up under your skin (ewwwww!!!!!!). Once I got over the smelly, stinky, unclogging phase of my pit detox, I started to notice that whenever I wasn’t eating as clean or I don’t drink enough water, my armpits (mainly just one) got a red splotch.

It goes away when I eat clean, drink a ton of water and do the sauna regularly.


I also notice that I get a small red splotch on my chest when I eat more sugary food. This is a yeast rash and shows some of the imbalances in my gut.

The body is so smart.

It is trying to tell you something.

  • Do you get acne on your face at random times?
  • Do you get random splotches like me?
  • Do you get a rash?
  • Do you have bad breath?
  • Do you fart a lot?
  • Do you have problems pooping?
  • Do your joints ache more at certain times?
  • Do you notice a change in your sleep pattern?


All of these things are signs that you should
PAY ATTENTION to your body.

  • What does your body tell you?
  • What are the signs?
  • Do they correlate with changes in your eating? Your stress level? Your schedule? Times of the year? Your exercise patterns?

The more I learn, the more I am amazed at the human body and our power to change what is going on with what we eat, how we handle our stress, and how well we treat our bodies.

EMAIL ME and let me know what signs your body sends you.
