There are several types of foot detox procedures, and those are:detox foot spas and foot detox pads, both electric and homemade. Taking advantage of any of these methods can lead to a much healthier life and a natural body cleanse. Here is how they work:
Foot detox pads
These pads are usually made from tree and bamboo extracts, and they can be purchased at almost any health food store. Foot detox pads, otherwise known as foot detox patches, are originating from the Japanese culture and are very simple to use.
In most of the cases, applying the foot detox pads before going to sleep and removing them once you wake up will do the trick. Some persons find the pads darkened from the toxins removed from their body overnight from only one use. Users of foot detox pads report feeling less joint pain, less fatigue, and fewer headaches.
Ionic foot baths are used for detoxifying the body through extracting toxins from your feet, of course. They use an electrical process that produces negative and positive ions in warm saltwater.
How do ionic detox foot baths work
They work by ionizing the warm saltwater with alternating polarities as you breathe and enjoy the sense of well-being which comes from both soaking and cleansing the feet.
While your feet bathe, the toxins are released from your body. The toxins are often the result of some unhealthy eating habits, mostly the consistent consumption of saturated fats and processed foods. When surrounded by air pollution we also breathe in other toxins, and they stay in us when we don’t exercise.
