A body that is overloaded with toxins cannot perform its normal cleansing job that is required for optimal health. In addition to naturally-occuring toxins, it is estimated that more than 400 man-made chemicals as well as heavy metals permeate the body of a person today. Naturally if these toxins are not removed from the body, they can cause chronic health ailments. It is therefore very necessary to detox and cleanse the body from these toxins and pollutants.
One way that is gaining much popularity as a convenient method to detox is the detox foot patch. The foot patch is simply a patch satchet filled with some natural plant-based ingredients that is applied on the soles of the feet. It has been widely touted as a simple and reasonably effective way to remove waste, toxins, microscopic parasites, heavy metals, chemicals and even cellulite (as some manufacturers claim).
Why detox through the foot? According to Chinese Traditional Medicine, our human body has over 360 acupuncture points, with more than 60 acupuncture points found on the soles of the foot. Known as the “second heart”, they reflect the zones of our major internal organs. These zones also indicate potential homes for toxins.
