Do Detox Foot Pads Really Work?
Detox foot pads may enhance the body’s natural detoxification processes to help counter-act the increased number of unnatural substances the body is put into contact with due to our modernized lifestyles. On this page you will learn about how foot detox pads work, why certain ingredients are so important, and what you can expect from using detox foot pads.

Detoxifying our body with detox foot pads
Detoxification occurs within our bodies on a daily basis. However, our modern day lifestyles introduce a higher amount of unnatural substances into the body that may result in the body losing its ability to eliminate these poisonous toxins. More synthetic food processing, more stress, more pollution, all add up. Our bodies sometimes don't know how to handle all the toxins, and aren't able to get rid of them via the normal detoxification measures. Over a period of time these substances accumulate and will cause various debilitating and chronic conditions.
The result is familiar: vague symptoms that are often overlooked, until more severe illness strikes. Symptoms such as frequent colds, feeling sluggish and tired, allergies, poor skin, coated tongue, bad breath, head pain and feeling ill after eating fats and other food may indicate an impairment in the body's functional ability without any overt organ damage.
What are foot detox pads?
Our detox foot pads are an amazing product from Asia that may help your body cleanse while you
sleep! The highly selected ingredients may pull impurities out of your system during the night. In the morning, you remove the pads from your feet and discard them.

Why are the foot pads worn on the feet?
The pads are worn on the feet for a couple of reasons - the feet are considered in Oriental medicine to be the "second heart" - that is, they help pump return circulation of blood and lymph back up into the torso. With much of our time sedentary these days, this natural pumping action is inhibited and circulation tends to bog down around the feet, ankles and lower legs.
Can the detox foot pads be worn anywhere else on the body?
The feet are the best place to wear the pads. However, benefits may be obtained from wearing the
patches on several places throughout the body. The pads can also be worn directly over a painful and
swollen area. They tend to work best when applied over a blood-rich spot, like the extremities, including the hands, feet, backs of knees, temple, neck and spine.
How long should I expect to wear the detox foot pads before I am fully detoxed?
Overall lymphatic detoxing through the feet may easily take 30 days or more for the average person, longer if you are chronically ill. Most people use the pads on the arches of the feet to start with. The pads start becoming lighter in color as less "gooey" lymph is extracted. At that point, other areas of the feet can be addressed - the balls of the feet, the toes, the heel, even the ankle. Some will see results in a day or two, while others may take several weeks to sense something positive is happening.
What if I don't see anything in my detox foot pads?
A few people don't seem to get a lot of "stuff" coming out of the feet at night -- maybe due to a sluggish
lymphatic system, and poor circulation. These people may do better to wear the pads during the day, to get a fuller benefit from the pumping of circulation through the feet, or to put the pads on an hour or
two before bedtime, while they are still moving around.
What results can I expect to see with the foot detox pads?
Reports of more energy, better sleep, clearer and more positive thinking, and relief from all kinds of
symptoms, including chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, are common. After the initial nightly
applications of several weeks, they may be worn once or twice a week, or a few times a month, as a
maintenance program, to continue to help the body with exposure to daily pollutants, as well as
toxicities that accumulate from stress.

Absolutely NO FILLERS! Only pure, wholesome, natural ingredients!
I am very adamant about offering a foot pad that does not contain fillers. I see a lot of foot pads out there that contain over 50% fillers, and refuse to degrade the quality of mine just to save a buck. So know that when you are using these foot pads, they are the best quality. Be wary of any manufacturer that has Dextrin, Vegetable Fiber or Cornstarch in their product. And, if they refuse to offer you a full ingredient list with the percentages of each ingredient, they are hiding something!
My tips for you when you first try these are to put 3 pads on each foot the first night: on your toes, on your arches and on your heels. In the morning, look at the pads and see what area of your foot is leeching out the most "goo" and then on the subsequent nights, focus on the area that you observed is pulling out the most toxins. That is the correlating area of your body that may be containing the most toxins. You are welcome to put 3 pads on each foot per night, or as you see fit. There is no "right" way to use these pads. Other information you might want to know, as it is frequently asked of me:
Q: Is the brownish "goo" in the morning a result of a reaction to my feet sweating?
A: While the footpads turn dark if exposed to water (just like tea bags would) the "goo" you see is most likely toxic matter that has been leeched through your lymphatic system and out your feet. If you continue to use the foot pads until you are detoxed you will notice that they don't come out gooey in the morning anymore. This dispels the fallacy that sweat is what is creating the results you see. You also can get them analyzed in an independent lab, and find out what toxins YOU have in your body!
Q: How long does a detox take for a normal person?
A: This depends on so many factors, including how often you are exposed to toxins (in your drinking water, food, the air you breathe, the chemicals you ingest, even your carpet may emit toxins!) On AVERAGE here in the US, I would have to say that a 2-3 month detox is normal per area of your foot. If you are sick or battling an illness or cancer, it could take more than a year of constant use! But even if you use the pads for only one month, you are doing a great service to your body and may be feeling more energy, better sleep, less illness.
Q: How do the foot pads work?
A: Through the process of osmosis (remember from high school biology?) It is the same process that allows trees to get their nutrients from the ground through their root system, but yet nourish the leaves on their farthest branches. It is this "tree sap" or wood vinegars, that allow this process to work.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: Because I know my detox foot pads work, I offer a money back guarantee on these foot pads. If you place an order and don't feel like they have worked like they should, you can return any UNOPENED 10-packs (they come in packs of 10) that is in re-sellable condition, and I will refund you the amount you returned, minus the shipping costs to you. I don't ask questions, but you are welcome to tell me why they didn't work for you. I do get returns, actually. Maybe one or two per year, out of the thousands that I ship out. Only once in 8 years was it something to do with the pads not working for someone. I offer a refund via check, paypal, or if it was within the past 60 days, directly to the card you used to purchase the foot pads. I want you to be happy, so I will do my best to see that you are satisfied.
CAUTION: if you are allergic to mushrooms or shellfish, please be very cautious when using this product, as it contains those ingredients. While they do not absorb INTO your body (rather the pads pull things FROM your body), I still like to warn anyone who may be severely allergic. Also, if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy, please don't use them for long periods of time.
