Foot Detox 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. Furthermore, foot detoxification is considered by many to be one of the safest forms of detoxification.
There are many 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.
Here’s how they work:
The detox pads are usually made from bamboo and tree extracts and they can be found at almost any healthy food store. Their origin is in Japanese culture. When removed, the pads are usually darkened due to the pulled up toxins from the body. The benefits reported by users are less joint ache, less headaches, and less fatigue.
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 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.
To detox through your feet you’ll need:
– Epsom salt
– Bentonite clay
– Apple cider vinegar
– Boiling water
– A bucket
Mix 1/2 cup of epsom salt into the water for a foot soak. 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.
All toxins which have been in your organism, mainly because of unhealthy diet, will be removed from your body. If your body is full of toxins you can see that the water in the bucket becomes darker as the feet soak in.
