If you plan a detox session, you have undoubtedly come across foot pads in pharmacies or for sale on the Internet, as they are supposed to be one of the easiest and most efficient ways to get rid of toxins from your body.
Nowadays, more and more people opt for foot pads, and they declare themselves happy with the results of this unique method. In fact, the effectiveness of foot pads is already famous from ancient times, but the modern world has recently embraced this idea, as a normal reaction to the increasing number of toxins we accumulate in our bodies. What we eat, the air we breathe, everything around us is filled with toxic substances. A sedentary lifestyle contributes to a higher risk of developing health issues due to toxins because these are rarely eliminated through perspiration. Moreover, a proper functioning of our natural detoxifying system is linked to physical activity, too. However, sometimes, your daily routine is so crazy, that you end up without doing any sports or exercising, and you can barely eat regularly. If this sounds familiar to you, maybe you have already thought of foot pads as a reliable alternative for detoxification.
How do foot pads act?
Generally, it is recommended to put your foot pads on in the evening, and leave them there until the next day. They ‘attract’ the toxins from your body, as the ingredients contained in the pads promote their natural elimination. In the morning, you will see that the pads have a different color, usually a dark one, even black, depending on the amount of toxins your body accumulated.
People using foot pads are content and declare that they feel better, just like after a regular detox with natural juices, diets, or supplements. Even though foot pads are an efficient and effortless method, they are also an expensive alternative. But the good news is that you can make them yourself at home. This way, you can take advantage of all their health benefits at low costs.
DIY Foot Pads
- ½ cup of Water
- 2-4 garlic cloves
- ½ onion
- 2 Self-sticking pads
- A pair of cotton socks
Take the garlic cloves and chop them finely. Do the same with the onion. In a small pot or a kettle, put the water and bring it to a boil. Add the garlic and the onion and let them simmer for about 10 minutes, then take the solution and put it in a glass jar or bowl. Let it there until it cools down.
Before you go to bed, get your self-sticking gauze pads and apply on them equal amounts of the detox solution, then place them on your feet, on the soles. Make sure they will remain in the same position during the night by putting on a pair of cotton socks.
In the morning, remove the pads and you will see that they have a dark color, which means that they have accomplished their purpose. You can repeat this for a week or two if you want the best results.
