Foot Detox Pads DIY
Lately, there has been a trend towards leading a healthy lifestyle. It’s everywhere.
Tons of products are now coming out in new versions that are supposed to make you look and feel healthier. New labels include words like “light, no fat, cholesterol free, lose weight, diet,” etc. There are even some brands of beer that are coming out with their light versions.
Products for exercising both at home and at the gym are also becoming popular. From expensive or extravagant exercise equipment to small accessories, there is something for every need and budget.
Keeps your body free from toxins
An important aspect of leading a healthy lifestyle is keeping your body free from toxins. Years of bad habits, like smoking, have filled up our bodies with toxins that poison our bodies. Our bodies are designed to get rid of these toxins naturally by sweating, preferably through exercise. However, we usually lead lifestyles that don’t always give us the time we need to run until we sweat off all those toxins.
Sensing this need, some companies have designed products to give us a shortcut that will let us get rid of the toxins in easier, more practical ways.
Foot detox pads are the latest fad in body detox. These foot detox pads are placed on your feet and left there all night while you sleep. They adhere to your feet in a similar way that other body patches do.
This natural health care product is effective in cleansing from the inside out.
Manufacturers and people claim that these foot detox patches absorb the toxins of your body, cleansing it while you sleep, and making you feel better when you wake up in the morning.
Effective detox cleanse
This process of foot detox is meant to be as effective in removing toxins from your body as normal sweating if not more. Or so the manufacturer says.
However, in my humble opinion, the effectiveness of these foot detox pads is questionable. While feet do sweat and expel toxins, the skin that covers them isn’t permeable (because the skin in general isn’t permeable), and thus these foot detox pads fall short of the promise of complete cleansing of the body. I believe you could wear a sweater all night and achieve the same result.
A reason people think these foot detox pads work is because they change color during the night. In reality, it’s the sweat of your feet that does this, and if you ever try just pouring a little water on the foot detox pads, you will get the same result.
In conclusion, I beleive that the effectiveness of foot detox pads is based on the willingness of people to believe they work. If you think they will work, most likely you will connect any health improvement to them. We shouldn’t underestimate the power of our own minds.
