In today’s modern world we are exposed to hundreds of thousands of synthetic materials and chemicals many of which are highly toxic. Much of our water, food and air is polluted by chemicals. Every day we unknowingly ingest toxins from processed foods, pesticides, meat hormones, artificial additives, preservatives and prescription drugs. Unhealthy lifestyle habits introduce significant toxins and stresses to our bodies.
Your body was not designed to deal with the onslaught of these toxins. By taking steps to cleanse those that have accumulated in your body, you can feel better and reduce your risk of illness. Detoxification can help your body function at an optimal level.
A build up of toxins, chemicals and metals in the body can effect;
- Sleep quality
- Concentration and memory
- Immune system
- Blood circulation
- Water retention
- Excess swelling
- Lymphatic health
- Energy levels
According to ancient Eastern medicine, toxins build up in the body throughout the day and then travel to the lower extremities such as the feet at night. Traditionally, the belief is that as blood circulates through the body the detox foot patches gently absorb toxins as they come into contact with the pores on our feet.
