Detoxification occurs within our bodies on a daily basis. However, our modern day lifestyles introduce a higher amount of unnatural substances into the body that may result in the body losing its ability to eliminate these poisonous toxins. More synthetic food processing, more stress, more pollution, all add up. Our bodies sometimes don't know how to handle all the toxins, and aren't able to get rid of them via the normal detoxification measures. Over a period of time these substances accumulate and will cause various debilitating and chronic conditions.
The result is familiar: vague symptoms that are often overlooked, until more severe illness strikes. Symptoms such as frequent colds, feeling sluggish and tired, allergies, poor skin, coated tongue, bad breath, head pain and feeling ill after eating fats and other food may indicate an impairment in the body's functional ability without any overt organ damage.
What are foot detox pads?
Our detox foot pads are an amazing product that will help your body cleanse while you sleep! The highly selected ingredients will pull impurities out of your system during the night. In the morning, you remove the pads from your feet and discard them.
Why are the foot pads worn on the feet?
The pads are worn on the feet for a couple of reasons - the feet are considered in Oriental medicine to be the "second heart" - that is, they help pump return circulation of blood and lymph back up into the torso. With much of our time sedentary these days, this natural pumping action is inhibited and circulation tends to bog down around the feet, ankles and lower legs.
Can the detox foot pads be worn anywhere else on the body?
The feet are the best place to wear the pads. However, benefits may be obtained from wearing the patches on several places throughout the body. The pads can also be worn directly over a painful and swollen area. They tend to work best when applied over a blood-rich spot, like the extremities, including the hands, feet, backs of knees, temple, neck and spine.
How long should I expect to wear the detox foot pads before I am fully detoxed?
Overall lymphatic detoxing through the feet may easily take 30 days or more for the average person, longer if you are chronically ill. Most people use the pads on the arches of the feet to start with. The pads start becoming lighter in color as less "gooey" lymph is extracted. At that point, other areas of the feet can be addressed - the balls of the feet, the toes, the heel, even the ankle. Some will see results in a day or two, while others may take several weeks to sense something positive is happening.
What if I don't see anything in my detox foot pads?
A few people don't seem to get a lot of "stuff" coming out of the feet at night -- maybe due to a sluggish lymphatic system, and poor circulation. These people may do better to wear the pads during the day, to get a fuller benefit from the pumping of circulation through the feet, or to put the pads on an hour or two before bedtime, while they are still moving around.
How to Use:
Apply detox patch one hour before bed-time.
Wash and dry your feet before applying the Detox Patch.
Take one adhesive sheet and slowly peel off paper.
Place the foot pad on the adhesive where noted to "Put adhesive sheet on this side" and place onto the soles of your feet or the desired area of other body part.(Socks can be worn if necessary)
Wear for 8-10 hours then remove pad.
Wipe surface with wet towel until it's no longer sticky.
Used patches will appear dark greenish or grayish as they absorb toxins and waste matter from your body.
Continue to use each night until the discoloration of the pad subsides.
Apply 2-3 times a week

Our tips for you when you first try these are to put 3 pads on each foot the first night: on your toes, on your arches and on your heels. In the morning, look at the pads and see what area of your foot is leeching out the most "goo" and then on the subsequent nights, focus on the area that you observed is pulling out the most toxins. That is the correlating area of your body that may be containing the most toxins. You are welcome to put 3 pads on each foot per night, or as you see fit. There is no "right" way to use these pads.
Q: Is the brownish "goo" in the morning a result of a reaction to my feet sweating? A: While the footpads turn dark if exposed to water (just like tea bags would), the "goo" you see is most likely toxic matter that has been leeched through your lymphatic system and out your feet. If you continue to use the foot pads until you are detoxed you will notice that they don't come out gooey in the morning anymore. This dispels the fallacy that sweat is what is creating the results you see. You also can get them analyzed in an independent lab, and find out what toxins YOU have in your body! Q: How do the foot pads work? A: Through the process of osmosis (remember from high school biology?). It is the same process that allows trees to get their nutrients from the ground through their root system, but yet nourish the leaves on their farthest branches. It is this "tree sap" or wood vinegars, that allow this process to work.
Q: How long does a detox take for a normal person? A: This depends on so many factors, including how often you are exposed to toxins (in your drinking water, food, the air you breathe, the chemicals you ingest, even your carpet may emit toxins!) On AVERAGE, we would have to say that around 2 months is normal. If you are sick or battling an illness or cancer, it could take more than a year of constant use! But even if you use the pads for only one month, you are doing a great service to your body and may be feeling more energy, better sleep, less illness.
CAUTION: if you are allergic to mushrooms or shellfish, please be very cautious when using this product, as it contains those ingredients. While they do not absorb INTO your body (rather the pads pull things FROM your body), we still like to warn anyone who may be severely allergic. Also, if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy, please don't use them for long periods of time.
