Detox Foot Patch / Detox Foot Pad

A Detox Foot Pad, also known as foot patches or sap sheets, is reputed to relieve fatigue, joint pain, headaches, skin rashes and many other health problems. You apply a foot pad on the bottom of both feet before bed, and remove them in the morning. Many have claimed that they experience better sleep and wake feeling refreshed the following morning.

The detox foot pad contains natural ingredients that stimulate and draw out toxins while you sleep. Next morning, by simply removing the patch you can actually see some of the material that has been “suctioned” out.

Detox Foot Pads are used to:

  • Relieve pain and discomfort of arthritis
  • Improve immunity system
  • Cleanse the lymphatic system
  • Increase vitality and energy
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Improve circulation
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance mental focus and concentration
  • Soothe headaches

Detox pads are patches made from natural ingredients that extract toxins from the body by simply sticking them onto the soles of the feet (or other places). They are typically made in Japan and are composed of all-natural ingredients and most importantly they have been proven over time to be a safe, effective, convenient and economical method of detoxification.

How Do Detox Foot Pads Work?

According to foot pad advocates, when toxins are absorbed into the system, most become embedded in our tissues. Detox foot pads heat the foot and then absorb the perspiration from the bottom of our foot. The foot pads clean out waste and toxic materials that are expelled in the form of sweat.

The detox foot pads are placed on the Kidney 1 Meridian on the soles of the feet, which is used extensively by Acupuncturists and Acupressurists to promote healing and relieve tension. In essence, detox foot pads gently stimulate this point for an 8 to 10 hour period.

Traditional oriental medicine has long held the knowledge that distributed throughout the body are acupuncture points called meridians. Meridians act as channels that link various parts and organs of the human body and are directly connected to the function of circulatory and lymphatic systems of the body. It is also known that the human feet have a large concentration of meridians. Proper stimulation of these points in the feet explains why one feels very relaxed and energetic after a good feet reflexology massage. Through the combined action of wood vinegar, far infrared and minus ion emissions, the meridians are stimulated. This stimulation results in the breakdown of water and waste molecules that frees blockages in the circulatory and lymphatic system allowing blood to flow freely and waste to enter the bloodstream readily for elimination.

Why apply the foot pads to the soles of the feet?

According to Chinese medical knowledge, our human body has over 360 acupuncture points, with more than 60 acupuncture points found on the sole of the foot alone. Our feet, also known as the "second heart", are the reflective zones of our internal organs, a potential home for toxins and a potent avenue to accelerate body detoxification through, avoiding the healing crisis effect of other rapid detoxification methods.

As the blood circulates to the soles of our feet the powerful ingredients of the Takara Body Detoxification Foot Patches unleash and accelerate the release of toxins through those acupuncture points. Takara's exclusive formula Hwalgicheon comes in a sachet, or patch that is attached to the skin via an adhesive sheet. After only one night of body detoxification, there may be significant changes (depending on your state of wellness or homeostasis) to the smell and color of the Takara Body Detoxification Foot Patches.

Depending on what the foot patches are absorbing they will range in color from black or dark brown to different shades of green and gray with possible spots of red and will feel a bit slushy (evidence of the toxins and excess moisture being released) after 8 to 12 hours of use.
