First used in Japan, detox foot pads are stick-on pads that you put on the soles of your feet and leave them on overnight. What these pads do is absorb toxins from your body while you sleep. This can be seen on the pads as they normally darken in color due to the eliminated toxins from your body. It’s because there’s a lot of blood and lymph circulation going on in your feet. And instead of traveling to your body, blood and lymph tend to remain around your ankles, lower legs and feet due to increasingly inactive lifestyle we normally have.
What this simple detox treatment does is regulate your blood pressure, relieve headaches, reduce cellulite, depression, diabetes, insomnia and stimulates weight loss.
Although you can buy detox foot pads over the counter, you can also opt for making your own. Just follow the instructions below and you are on the right path to improve your health on many levels.
What you need:
- Self-stick gauze pads
Chop the garlic and onion finely. In a cooking pot boil some water then add the finely chopped garlic and onions. Continue boiling for another 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool for 20 minutes. Soak the gauze pads with the liquid just enough to get wet. If there’s excess water in the pads, wring it out. Make sure you don’t wet the sticky part of the gauze pads.
Stick the gauze pad on the bottom of your feet. To secure the pads from moving, put on a pair of cotton socks. Do this before going to bed and remove the pads in the morning.
