Eating to lighten your underarms

Why do you have dark underarms?

According to the lineage I am rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine; dark underarms are a result of stagnation in the liver and its paired organ the gall bladder. Causing excessive sweating, coupled with blocked meridian pathways; therefore, sweat not being able to be properly expelled. A condition called acanthosis nigricans (AN) causing darkening in certain parts of the body could occur.

Clearing this as a permanent solution will mean cleaning up your liver; so, removing all trigger foods: dairy, sugar, white flour, processed/refined foods (includes refined oils); adding wholesome plant-based foods mainly (you want to have meats then balance by having more greens, which the liver loves). Aid some more by adding a greens juice. Include bitter and sour foods.

Home remedies for dark Underarms

  1. Potato juice used twice daily or rub slices over the dark areas.
  2. Apple cider vinegar + baking soda make a paste and apply can use ¼ cup ACV to ½ teaspoon Baking soda.
