Before we start with this article, I would like to ask you a simple question – did you know that one of the most effective ways to cleanse your organism from all harmful toxins and substances is through your feet? Well yes, and this is why in this article we are going to show you how to cleanse your body from all harmful toxins and substances – through your feet. The experts claim that the detox through your feet can be an effective and easy way to help cleanse your body of toxins that build up over time(without the sacrifice of cutting certain foods out of your diet).
Note: some experts think that the foot detoxification is considered to be one of the safest forms of detoxification.You should know that there are different types of foot detox procedures, including foot detox pads and detox foot spas, both homemade and electric; taking advantage of either of these methods can lead to a healthier life and a natural body cleanse.
Foot detox pads
How this works – first, let me say a few words about these foot detox pads: you should know that these detox pads are typically made from tree and bamboo extracts, and can be purchased at just about any health food store. Foot detox pads, or also known by the name – foot detox patches, have their origins in Japanese culture and are simple to use.
How to use it– it’s highly recommend for you to apply the foot detox pads before you go to sleep and remove them when you wake up in the morning. So, when you remove the pads in the morning, you will notice that they are darkened with the toxins removed from your body overnight from just a single use.
Results – many people around the world have tried and used these detox foot pads, and they say that they feel less fatigue, less joint pain, and fewer headaches. The ionic foot baths are used to detoxify the body by extracting toxins from, yep, you guessed it, your feet. Ionic foot baths use an electrical process that produces positive and negative ions in warm saltwater.
Ionic detox foot baths work?
Note: you should also know that you can detox through your feet by using detox foot baths.
The ionic detox foot baths work by ionizing warm saltwater with alternating polarities as you breathe easy and enjoy the sense of well-being that comes from both soaking and cleansing your feet.Well, this means that when you soak your feet in this detox foot bath, the toxins are released from your body. These toxins are often the result of unhealthy eating habits, mainly the consistent consumption of processed foods and saturated fats. We also breathe in other toxins when surrounded by air pollution, and they sit in us when we do not exercise.
Ions and Electrons
The idea behind ionic foot baths is a process called electrolysis, a method of using an electrical current to create a chemical reaction. Energy is charged through the saltwater, breaking down water molecules into ions. Warm water opens the pores of the feet, salt acts as an anti-inflammatory astringent, ions are absorbed and the detoxification of your feet begins.
Once the saltwater has been added to the foot bath, you’ll see the water change color, often to a dark mud-brown, or, in some cases, black, color. The color change occurs as a result of the salt reacting with the ionic cartridge (or other method used to produce the ionic charge). It is not a result of toxins leaving your body, as some mistakenly believe.
Soak those feet!
Unlike some other detox products, ionic foot baths can be used regularly for up to 45 minutes at a time, as frequently as every other day if desired. (It is not necessary to use a foot detox machine more than once a day to achieve the desired results of deep-foot cleansing.)
Besides the benefits of detoxing the skin of your feet, ionic foot baths are both soothing and relaxing. There’s nothing quite like coming home to a warm saltwater ion foot bath as you unwind in your favorite chair after a long day. Combining deep breathing techniques and meditative practice with the use of your foot bath will help increase your body’s supply of oxygen while giving you an overall sense of calm and well-being. So, go ahead — soak those feet.
Recipe for homemade detox foot bath
Use a simple container from your home that’s large enough for both of your feet to fit comfortably.
To prepare a detox foot bath, first visit your local health and nutrition store to purchase an herb packet specifically for foot detoxification. If you can’t get to a health food store, or can’t find the right herb packet , you can try common ingredients found in your own cabinets, such as tea, dried hot peppers, garlic, ginger or dried citrus fruit peels. Tea (green tea, regular tea or any of the specialty herb teas) is especially effective, and can also help eliminate problematic foot odor caused by toxins. Experiement with a combination of any or all of these ingredients.
Then, mix your store-bought or home-made herb concoction with very hot water (about the same temperature as a hot tub) in your foot bath.
Soak your feet for 25 minutes — relax and enjoy.
