Do You Know What Toxins are in Your Feet?
Have you seen the infomercials for foot detox’s? Most of the infomercial’s show a nice, clean foot bath and after your feet have been “detoxed” you are left with gross brown water. These leaves us all wondering… what is in our feet?
Apparently, the detox process pulls all of the toxins, from your entire body, out through your feet. I’m a firm believer in detox’s and the need to keep you body balanced but, lets be honest…pulling ALL of the toxins out through your feet is a little hard to believe. Some people believe it can be done and are paying anywhere from $100 to $700 for a foot detox.
I put the foot detox to the test last night. I found an at home recipe for the detox: 1/3 baking soda, 1/4 Epsom salt, 1/4 sea salt and 5 drops of essential oils. I mixed all of the ingredients with a bucket of hot water and soaked my feet for 30 minutes. My feet felt amazing but, the water never turned brown. I’d do the foot detox again but I would never buy one with the belief that all my toxins will be magically pulled out through my big toe.
