We were one of the many that assumed that Borax was a toxic product. When we began researching the subject, we were amazed to find out that it is a natural mineral from the Earth.
It is hard to believe that something found in the laundry aisle could potentially have health benefits but that is exactly what many users are suggesting on youtube. Many are raving about the results they have achieved for arthritis, candida and yeast infections.
Whilst we are not experts on the subject, and don’t profess to be, we are merely passing on information that is readily in circulation. The good news is that at the very least, you can feel confident about using it around your home and it is perfect for your laundry.
It is far better to use a natural mineral to wash your clothing as opposed to harsh chemicals and toxins. When you look for it in the store, consider finding the most pure version that you can. On Amazon, we found some incredible reviews from many stating that joint pain disappeared and arthritis symptoms greatly reduced when added to water. You can see further details on the subject in the video included at the end of our post.
“Borax (sodium tetraborate hexahydrate or sodium borate) is a naturally-occurring mineral composed of sodium, boron, oxygen and water. It has been used as a remedy for over 4000 years. Most commercially-produced borax is mined from deposits produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes.”
It is found in large quantities in the Western United States, in Mediterranean countries, Kazakhstan, and the Tibet region of China. Turkey is one of the largest commercial producers of borates. Borax contains about 11% boron by weight.
You may be concerned about the warnings on borax containers and some of what you read on the internet. However, borax’s toxicity is about the same as sodium chloride (salt)”
Borax Cures & Health Benefits
We have included a video from Earth Clinic explaining the health benefits and how Borax is used by their community. You can read the various comments on the video and we also recommend that if this is something of interest to you that you take responsibility and do your own research.
You need to investigate fully and speak with a trusted health professional. Remember, Doctors are focussed on sickness so whilst their opinion is valuable you should also seek an alternative from someone that specialises in wellness. You must also take into consideration other things that you are taking. This is for information purposes only and not medical advice. Click Play above to view now ^
