Foot detoxification is considered be one of the safest forms of detoxification. It is also very effective and easy way to cleanse your body of toxins.
There are various methods of foot detox, including foot detox pads and detox foot spas, both homemade and electric; using either of these methods can lead to a healthier life and a natural body cleanse.
Foot Detox Pads are typically made from tree and bamboo extracts, and can be purchased at just about any health food store. These detox pads, also known as foot detox patches, have their origins in Japanese culture and are simple to use.
All you have to do is apply the foot detox pads before you go to sleep and remove them when you wake up. People who use these pads claim to feel less fatigue, less joint pain and fewer headaches.
Ionic Detox foot baths are used to detoxify the body by extracting toxins from your feet. They use an electrical process that produces positive and negative ions in warm saltwater.
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.
If you want to detox your body through your feet you will need:
• ½ cup Epsom Salt
• 2 tablespoons Bentonite Clay
• 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
• Hot (almost boiling) water
• A bucket or tub to soak feet
Mix 1/2 cup of Epsom salt into the hot water. Until you wait for your water to cool down so you can soak your feet, mix 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay with 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in a bowl. You can add a little water to thin, if needed. Coat your feet in this mixture and let it dry for 10 minutes. Check the water, if the temperature of the water is comfortable, you can now put your feet inside and let them soak for at least 15 minutes.
While your feet bathe, 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. If your body is full of toxins you can see that the water in the bucket becomes darker as the feet soak in.
