One of the mostly recommended methods for body detoxification by the world-renowned Chinese medicine is the foot detox method. It is comprised of several methods done similarly that help your body get rid of all the toxins you’ve gathered. The Chinese claim that our feet are full of energy points connected to all the organs that are in our body. By stimulating these zones, all of the health problems tied to those organs disappear.
In this article, we’re going to show you some of the best detox methods!
Ionic foot bath
The process that this foot bath uses is electrolysis. You eliminate all the harmful toxins through an electrical current which causes an internal chemical reaction. That reaction triggers the removal of toxins from our body. Salt and warm water are the main ingredients of these baths. You just have to put your feet inside and rest for a while until you’ve noticed your water is dark.
Here are some examples:
Salt detox bath
- 1 cup of ACV
- 1 cup of sea salt
- 2 cups of baking soda
- 1 cup of Epsom salt
- 2-3 drops of an essential oil
First, put a bowl of water to boil. Add the Epsom salt and the sea salt in it. Stir it well. Then, fill your tub with hot water. Add this mixture in it. In the end, add the ACV. Soak your feet for half an hour. All of the toxins will disappear naturally!
Clay detox bath
- ½ a cup of bentonite clay
- ½ a cup of Epsom salt
- 3-4 drops of an essential oil
First, take a pot with water and boil it. Put the Epsom salt inside. Let it dissolve. After that, add the bentonite clay with the essential oil. You should soak your feet in this for 30 minutes. All of the toxins will disappear, but you’ll also boost your levels of magnesium!
Oxygen detox bath
- 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide
- 1 tablespoon of powdered ginger
Fill your tub with hot water. Add the ingredients inside. Soak in this for half an hour. This bath will help you against skin irritations and allergies, but you’ll also eliminate toxins!
Foot detox pads
This is another very effective way to eliminate toxins. You can find them in health stores. Put them on your soles before sleeping and that’s it! When you get up in the morning, they’ll be black. It’s because all of the toxins have been removed. This procedure can be repeated every night in order for you to notice optimal results!
