According to the Chinese beliefs and the reflexology system, our feet are the location of natural energy zones which are directly related to important body systems and organs.
Therefore, through the zones on the feet, we can effectively cleanse the body from the accumulated toxins.
Here are several ways to detoxify the body through the feet:
Oxygen Detox Recipe
- 2 cups hydrogen peroxide
- 1 tablespoon of dry ginger powder
Add these ingredients to a tub with warm water, and soak in it for half an hour.
Ionic Food Bath
This treatment is similar to electrolysis, which uses electrical current in order to cause a potent chemical reaction. The warm water will open up the pores, and the salt will act as an anti-inflammatory agent.
The feet will absorb the ions from the bath, and when the water becomes dark, it means that the toxins have been pulled out of the body. Here are several great salt detox recipes:
Salt Detox Recipe
- 1 cup Epsom salts
- 1 cup sea salt
- 2 cups baking soda
Add the ingredients in a pot full of water, and boil them a bit. Then, fill the tub with warm water, add some apple cider vinegar, and add the previously boiled mixture.
You can add some essential oil or some other salt as well. This bat will detoxify the body, raise the magnesium levels, and soothe skin irritations. If you feel tired afterward, it means that it has eliminated the toxins from the body.
Clay Detox Recipe
- ½ a cup of bentonite clay
- ½ a cup of Epsom salts
Add the Epsom salts to a tub with hot water, and add some essential oil. Then, combine the bentonite clay with some water, use a wooden spoon to stir, and add it to the bath. To cleanse the body, you should soak in the bath for 20-30 minutes.
Foot Detox Pads
Foot detox pads are an effective way to cleanse the body. You can purchase them from health stores, apply them on the soles at bedtime, and remove them in the morning. If they have become dark, it means that they have eliminated the toxins from the body.
