Body Detox with Foot Spa or Foot Bath
Many people say that doing a foot detoxification process via foot bath or foot spa helps relax the entire body and reduce body stress. Although many people say it is beneficial, others are not willing to try this because of the onslaught of “miraculous” foot baths that promise to eliminate toxins. So whether the claims are true or false, a foot detox bath is still one way of detoxifiying the whole body.
There are many kinds of foot detox baths available in health shops where some packages may include something to soak your feet in with some special foot bath ingredients. During the detoxification process, the person puts his or her feet in the foot bath which has already pre-mixed with the detoxification elements. Various foot detox recipes can be found in books or online but you can also find a wide range of foot detox ingredients in these health stores where you have earlier bought your foot bath package.
You can even combine your own bath with your own foot detox mix. The most favoured and popular method is to add fresh herbs like ginger root, licorice and mint to hot water and just soak yourself in the water. Buying special foot bath ingredients at the health store to add on to your bath is also another option.
Benefits of doing a foot bath include getting rid of all foot smells and also experiencing total body relaxation.
Detoxify with Foot Spa
However, some people believe that a foot spa/bath using salt water and low electrical voltage is also advantegeous because the toxins apparently come out in the water which would turn dark-coloured. This works through the electric current that flows through the metal electrodes which can consist of nickel, iron or copper. When this exchange of electricity happens, the electrodes release ions that actually change the water colour to a darker shade, depending on how much salt is added to water. Many businesses have come out from this foot spa/bath and they even have satisfied customers saying that they feel good and relaxed after using the foot spa/bath (that is probably because of the salt).
Altogether, there are pros and cons of doing a foot detoxification via foot spa/baths. If you do careful research and are convinced that they can help detox your feet and body, you can then do a foot detox for better health.
