How to Detox Your Body? Use a Foot Detox Pad. Is it a Scam?

3 Lovely Thoughts

To have a quick fix on detoxifying our body, foot detox pad became a popular choice this day. Detox Foot Patch is claim to fight toxin and restore internal vitality overnight. It's contain Tourmaline, a mineral found in the rainforest in Brazil which is said to improves circulation and detoxification in your body. How far is this true? Ed Zimney, MD in his writing slam a campaign as such.

They make a big deal about how the pads go on clean and white and come off dirty and brown. What else would you expect from applying vinegar-soaked adhesive gauze to the bottom of your feet? It’s bound to pull off dead skin, dirt and debris - but toxins, parasites, cellulite, heavy metals, and the like? No way. I’m sorry, but you can add your comments below if you think I’m closed-minded, unknowledgeable or otherwise deaf to a new miracle cure, but these things are just not coming out of the bottoms of your feet! No I haven’t tried them and no I have no hard data to back up my assertion that they don’t work, but here it is anyway: they don’t work! The skin doesn’t work that way, the lymphatic system doesn’t work that way. The immune system doesn’t work that way. There is just no physiologic mechanism for these types of things to pass through your skin, regardless of what you might apply to it (even “double-distilled bamboo vinegar!) - Ed Zimney, MD for Everyday Health

There are a lot of imitate product this day that will give you the same result. Apply them to the soles of your feet before sleep. The next morning, you wake up you will find the clean and white patch before has turn into a brown and dirty color. The brown color is said to be a toxin extracted from your body. When use repeatedly, it is said that you will soon find the patch is no longer shows a dark color as it was in the first day. It means, the toxin in your body has reduce.

Do you have any experience using foot detox pad? I did tried foot detox pad before for an experience.

On the first day, the patch turn brown and dirty.

On the second day, it was brown and dirty.

On the third day, it was brown and dirty again.

On the fourth day, it produce the same result - brown and dirty again. My husband asked me, why the color isn't changed? Is that mean my body is not cleanse yet?

I am interested with Aidid Mu'addib's experiment in his blog how the detox foot pad works and response in a different circumstances.

Tap the foot detox pad with the adhesive tape (included)

He fills his baby's cup with a lukewarm water

...and the foot detox pad on top

5 minutes afterwards...TADA! The pad has turn into a brownish color. Is that means the lukewarm water is toxic?

If you have a different opinion or experience with foot detox pad, I would like to hear from you. After all, the best way to detox is by watching what you eat and practice a healthy living.

Everyone has their down moment. You may be struggling to lose weight. You can get low self-esteem about how you look, but instead of wasting your energy mourning about it, it is a wise idea to turn this feeling into a great motivation. I love to sing this song "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera because it's delivering positive affirmation in it.

When you want to lose weight, you must have a right motivation to do so.You should not compare yourself to others as a reason to lose weight. You cannot compare yourself to a Hollywood star! Having the right motivation to lose weight will help you live life less pressure and you will have a healthy weight loss too.  What song inspires you? Share your inspirational song in the comment space below.

Don't look at me

Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, i saw debris
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today

To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone left the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
When the sun is shining through
Then the clouds won't stay

And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun won't always shine
(sun won't always shine)
But tomorrow will find a way
All the other times

'cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today

A blonde is terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet.
"I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks.
The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds."
When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.
"Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?"
The blonde nodded...
"I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day."
"From hunger, you mean?" asked the doctor.
"No, from skipping."
