Detoxification or detox refers to your body’s natural and ongoing process of flushing out toxic substances. Your liver, kidneys, and intestines are the organs most responsible for this cleansing process, but some waste products can also leave your body through your skin. For example, when you go to a sauna, you can sweat out oxidant byproducts and other toxins through your skin. Other methods of supporting your body’s detoxification process include eating certain detox foods, undergoing acupressure sessions, and using detox foot pads.
Detoxification occurs within your body daily – however, you can speed up this natural process with the help of detox foot pads. While the detox pads can be applied anywhere on your skin, they work best when placed under your feet, which are covered in nerve endings and sweat glands. In oriental medicine, the feet are considered the “second heart” of the body, since they partly help in pumping your blood and lymph back up into your torso.
If you want to maximize the effect the detox pads can have on your body, you can carefully apply them on specific reflex points on your feet to stimulate them and support your overall health and vitality. (Related: Gross! You Won’t Believe What Detox Foot Pads Can Remove From the Body.)
Detox foot pads originated in Japan, using knowledge of the human body that has been cultivated and refined over the centuries. The pads work using osmosis, the process whereby molecules travel through semi-permeable membranes. Upon application, the health-promoting ingredients of the detox foot pads capture and absorb toxic elements and molecules. This is why it is important to choose detox foot pads that feature high-quality ingredients with cleansing properties that can efficiently bind with heavy metals and other toxins in your body. Some of the ideal ingredients include bamboo vinegar, dextrin, vegetable fiber, loquat leaf, tourmaline, zeolite, vitamin C, negative ion powder, chitin, and chitosan.
Here are some of the ways that detox foot pads can benefit your body:
They assist with your body's natural detoxification process – Foot pads help eliminate toxins and heavy metals from your body by drawing them out through the feet and absorbing or capturing them in the pad.
