Surely, you have all heard or read about different ways with which you can detox your body. However, there is this very effective treatment which you might not have heard about. It is actually a detox through your feet.
Apparently, our feet have natural energy zones that are connected to the organ system. What this means is that you can remove the toxins in your body and detox it through your feet.
Feels impossible still? Just bear with us. You can do it in two different ways.
Foot Detox Pads
This is a very simple way to detox your body. Just put the foot detox pad before you go to bed. When you wake up, remove the pads. If they are dark, it means that you have got rid of all the toxins. You can purchase these pads at every health store.
Ionic Foot Bath
This is the second way which you can detox. This bath will remove all toxins from your body. It is based on electrolysis and it makes a chemical reaction by using current. You have to use warm water though in order to open up your pores. Salt, too. It acts as an anti-inflammatory astringent.
What happens here is you actually absorb the ions through your feet and if the water becomes dark it means that the detox is successful and you have eliminated the toxins.
There are actually several recipes for this bath that you can try:
1. Salt Detox Bath
- Sea salt – 1 cup
- Essential oil (depending on your taste)
- Epsom Salt – 1 cup
- Baking soda – 2 cups
Just put the ingredients in boiling water so that they can dissolve. After that add warm water and apple cider vinegar in a tub. Then, add the salt and essential oils to the mixture and let them sit for like an hour. After the bath, do not be surprised if you feel tired or weak. This recipe actually raises the levels of magnesium and it soothes skin irritation and it detoxifies the body.
2. Oxygen Detox Bath
- Dried ginger powder – 1 tbsp
- Hydrogen peroxide – 2 cups
Add the hydrogen peroxide and the dried ginger in a tub full of water. Relax in tub for 30 minutes. The bath will help you with allergies or irritations and it will also make your skin smooth and perfect.
3. Clay Detox Bath
- Essential oils (depending on your taste)
- Bentonite clay – 1/2 cup
- Epsom salt – 1/2 cup
Just put the Epsom salt and the essential oils in hot water and leave them to dissolve. Use small amounts of water to mix the clay. It is very important you do not use metal while you do this step. Afterwards, just add the clay in the hot tub and soak for 20 minutes. The bath will help you increase the magnesium levels and it will detoxify your body at the same time.
Now that you know the way to detoxify your body with the help of your feet and you know what to use too, do not wait a minute longer. This is very easy to do, you can do it yourself and your body will thank you. It will be more healthy and free of all the toxins.
