Yes, it may seem strange at first glance. People use methods derived from ancient China detox your body in a surprising ways.
According to the Chinese system of reflexology, there are zones of energy in the feet that connect to some of the most important organs in our body. It is a very simple treatment that is quite effective.
Foot detox pads
These can be found in just about any health store and all you need to do is put them on before going to bed at night. When you wake up in the morning, take them off and check the color. If they come out black, then you know that toxins were actually removed from your body.
Iconic foot bath
This is another simple way to detoxify the body through the feet. This form of detoxification uses electrolysis which is simply a method that utilizes electrical current to cause a chemical reaction. Make sure that the water you are using is warm to ensure that your pores are opened. Salt must also be added to the water, seeing that it can serve as an anti-inflammatory astringent. Ions created by the electrical charge are absorbed through the feet. If the water changes to a dark color, this simply means that the detoxification process is working.
This particular bath can be done in several different ways and we will be looking at a few of them below.
