Body Detox with Foot Detox
There are many types of detoxification for the body, and one the very popular ways to detoxify these days is through the feet. Many advocates of the many detoxification systems and diets will also tell you that a foot detox is the way to go. Foot detoxification is claimed to relax the whole body and cleanse the body of toxins accumulated through the pores of the feet. However, there are still plenty of people who do not engage in foot detoxification simply because they do not believe that it will work and regard it as a scam.
The best person to know if foot detoxification is a scam or not if yourself. If it makes you feel good, calms you and alleviates whatever diseases that you might have, why not! There are many foot spa that offer this kind of detox. If you prefer to do it at the comfort of your own home, detox foot baths can be purchased at a local health store and they are inexpensive.
A foot detox bath package would comprise of a special basin and sometimes a foot bath concoction. After soaking your your feet in the charged foot bath for about 30 minutes, the color of the water will change from clear to murky brown where the darkness of the color of the water is used to gauge the amount of toxins being removed. Most users can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater feeling of well-being following each detox foot bath session.
Another method to perform a foot detoxification is through the use of your own bath and own foot detox mixture. Adding herbs to the hot water and let your feet soak in it for about 20-30 minutes is believed help detox but not as efficiently as the ion foot bath because of the absense of the electrical array that generates ions in the water that help pull toxins out from the pores of your feet. Ginger root, licorice, as well as mint are some of the herbs that are often used with a foot detoxification. These are also some of the ingredients that are used in commercially prepared foot baths.
Despite all the shout outs about foot detox being a scam, there are still many people who are using it, continue to use it and swear by it. But don’t just take anyone’s word for it. Try and judge for yourself! If it didn't draw out the toxins from your feet, at least it gives you a soothing and relaxing time to help you relieve fatigue, destress and unwind...which is not a bad thing at all.
Even though this method of detoxing is quite simple, it is not suitable for everyone. Those who suffer from chronic diseases, have either lost or gained an organ, who are fitted with a pacemaker or have a metal joint in any part should seek their doctor’s opinion before starting a foot detox bath.
