Japan is the country where these detox foot pads originate from. We are talking about stick-on pads that need to be put on the soles of your feet before you go to sleep. The following morning when you remove the pads, you will notice the harmful toxins eliminated from the body have made the pads dark.
These pads are being placed on the feet as they help blood circulation and lymph circulation into the torso. Our circulation is being pretty deteriorated due to our inactive lifestyle, and this is especially the case in the areas around the ankles, lower legs and feet.
The beneficial impacts of the usage of foot pads are decreased joint pain, less fatigue, and fewer headaches.
Moreover, the foot pads can be bought ready-made, or can be made by you.
These are the ingredients you will need:
- Self-stick gauze pads
Chop well he onion and the garlic and put them aside.
Pour some water in a pot and bring it to a boil. Then, add the sliced onions and garlic to the water and let it boil 10 more minutes.
After that, put the pot with the mixture aside and let it cool off for about 20 minutes. When the 20 minutes are over, pour the mixture in the inside of the self-stick gauze pads, just enough to get wet. If you have poured too much liquid in them, squeeze out the excess liquid. Be careful not to wet the sticky part of the pads.
Place the self-stick gauze pad on the soles of your feet and patch them. Take care that the inside part, or the center of the pads is directly lying on the sole of the foot. Put on a pair of socks over the pads, so that you make sure they will remain on your feet. The next morning when you wake up, throw them away.
