Detox foot pads were first used in Japan. It is about stick-on pads that need to be placed on the soles of the feet before going to bed. The next day when you remove the foot pads, you will see that the dangerous toxins eliminated from the body have darkened the pads.
The foot pads are worn on feet because they help circulate blood and lymph into the torso. Our inactive lifestyle causes circulation to bog down around the ankles, lower legs and feet.
The positive results of using foot detox pads are less fatigue, joint pain, and fewer headaches.
Additionally, you can buy ready-made detox foot pads, or make your own at home.
These are the ingredients you will need:
- Self-stick gauze pads
Slice the garlic and onion till it is well chopped. Put it aside.
Pour water in a kettle and let it boil. Add the finely sliced garlic and onions in the boiling water. Then, let it boil for additional 10 minutes.
Next, let the water cool off for 20 minutes. Then, pour the mixture in the center of the self-stick gauze pads, only enough to get wet. If there is too much liquid in the pads, squeeze the excess out. Also, try not to wet the sticky part of the pads.
Patch the self-stick gauze pad on the soles of the feet, especially at the center part. Put on socks so the pad won’t fall off. Throw it the next morning.
