What Is A Detox Foot Patch?

by , CEO, Wise Choice Health, Inc

The Benefits of Foot Detox Pads: Science says They Work

The modern person is often assaulted by a toxic burden from our polluted environment; unavoidable toxins from the water, food and the air we breathe. After all, poisons are everywhere; in fact, the majority of food consumed by the ordinary person contains chemicals, toxins, additives and other artificial substances that can harm the human body. The accumulation of these toxins leads to loss of energy, illnesses, back pains and our overall body performance slows down.

With regular cleansing, or body detoxification as many call it, you can reverse the damage and keep your body organs functioning smoothly. People use different methods to detoxify their bodies and get rid of the accumulated toxins. A detox diet, though a common detoxification method, can be rough on some people. Fortunately, you do not have to force your body adapt a rigorous detox diet. That’s because you can always use foot detox pads to achieve the same effect; body detoxification.

What are detox foot pads?

These are adhesive detox foot patches that naturally suck toxins from your body while you sleep. You wear them by simply attaching the pads to the sores of your feet. Toxins will be drawn right out of you.

How do they work?

Most feet pads contain natural detox ingredients such as a mix of plants, herbs, wood vinegar and other ingredients that help remove toxins from your body, but how exactly?

In the case of BodyPure 2x Detox Foot Pads, you place them on the central-anterior area of the sole of the foot—an area that connects to the liver, kidney and spleen. The natural herbs interact with your body and emit far infrared energy; as a result, the natural excretion process is accelerated. In addition, the energy helps the body remove toxins at a faster rate through the pores.
When toxins are removed, proper circulation in the body is achieved and the various body processes increase in efficiency. Some people wear the foot pads on different body parts as long as high amount of blood is flowing through them. However, the feet have proven to be the most effective place to wear the foot pads.

Is the effect of using a detox foot pad instant?

Many people, usually, report feeling changes in their bodies within the first few days of using them. As a matter of fact, the white pads will turn filthy gray by morning, a clear indication that the pad has removed toxins from your body. But you should not be concerned if you don’t feel any noticeable change within the first few days. As long as the foot pads have a filthy gray discoloration, believe that your body is eliminating toxins.

As days go on, you will discover that the pads are less discolored in the morning. This shows that the amount of toxins in your body is beginning to reduce. The full effect of the foot detox pads, however, kicks in after around 30 days though many people have reported immediate improvement in their overall well-being within the first week of using them.

Benefits of using detox foot pads

Now, we all know the health benefits of natural detoxification; we prevent premature aging and diseases after reducing the toxin levels in our bodies. These are the same benefits that are enjoyed by those who use detox foot pads. BodyPure detox pads, for instance, provides relief for those people who have joint pains, have trouble sleeping, fatigue easily and experience high levels of stress. Here’s a brief overview of the benefits;

  • Help lift depression and reduce stress
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve energy levels
  • Diminish headaches and arthritis pain
  • Enhance circulation
  • Treats skin rashes
  • Boost the immune system, and many more

But detox pads are scam…

Well, maybe you are skeptical about using pads due to this statement you read on various blogs on the Internet. So here is a proof that the detox foot patch works.

  • First, the visual proof after using the foot pads is credible; that we cannot argue about. The improvements reported by various users cannot be planned. I mean, users live in different parts of the world—America, Europe, Asia, you name it—so the chances that they are lying are next to zero.
  • Multiple samples of used foot pads were analyzed by SRC Analytical Lab, a highly accredited Environmental laboratory. They discovered traces of heavy metals such as mercury, Arsenic and nickel among others.
  • Some scientists decided to analyze the hair of people before and after using the detox foot pads. They discovered that toxin levels were higher before people used the foot pads.
  • Foot pads were shown to promote healing and relaxation processes. That’s because a scientific study showed that foot pads increase the amount of alpha brain waves. In addition, Japan scientists discovered that the pads quicken circulation, thus enhancing detoxification of the body.

And the list could go on and on.

Be wary…

Cheap, fake detox foot patches are widely sold in the market. They contain lower quality or harmful substances that yield unsatisfactory results or even worse, harm your body. When purchasing detox foot pads make sure the pads you take home do not contain synthetic and artificial ingredients.

Proven and tested foot pads provide the best way to hit the ‘restore factory settings’ button on your body. That’s because they help reset the body to natural health and complete freedom from toxins, the way it should be naturally. You’ll find that foot pads provide one of the easiest, cheapest and natural ways in promoting your overall health condition.

Sure, the pads deserve to get the attention. Figure this; they are made of genuine natural detox ingredients, and boast a 2x the active ingredients of any detox pad in the market.

A Foot Detox Skeptic

Writing on foot detox is a hard thing to do for a writer because when it comes to its production, purchase and use, it means different things to different people. I believe I am going to hurt some people with this article. Though I do not mean to let anybody down, I believe many people will end up reading this. Therefore, I do not want them to be misled. I will write on the pads from my perspective of and belief in them.

What are Foot Patches?

They are a foot patch containing wood vinegar and other materials. They are attached to the soles of the feet when sleeping at night to stimulate the pressure points and open them up to remove the toxins present in the body via the feet. Toxicity is the root cause of some ailments in the body, and when toxin is in abundance, it results in adrenal fatigue and other ailments such as depression of the immune system, causing the immune system to be vulnerable to other harmful microorganisms and viruses.

The foot detox pads were introduced into the market to help remove, or at least reduce, the toxins in the body before they overload the two primary organs of toxic elimination (liver and kidney). The early manufacturers of these pads believed they would remove toxins from your body and help you come off diseases and ailments caused by a high level of toxins in your body. The pads work by causing the feet to sweat and excrete fluid which is absorbed into the patches, making the pads become lighter and appear darker in the morning, while the lightening is correlated with feeling better.

The flop from fake manufacturers

Different companies feature different trees; those they should use and those they shouldn’t have. That was the downfall of foot detox pads. The motive to make money led many companies to start the production of fake toxin removal pads. This kept multiplying, while each manufacturer claimed their own as “the best”.

Presently, there are still a few manufacturers of foot detox pads such as “Takara”, “Kinoki”, “Chikusaku”, and “Nova” etc. Some of the pads produced had fillers and some did not. They were all manufactured to make a difference for those with various ailments such as fibromyalgia, inflammation, joint pain, chronic illnesses, migraines, etc. But did they all stand the test of a gentle push?

Do Foot Detox Pads work?

This is a question that demands a valid and honest answer. Yes! Some of them still work, but only a very few of them. Though there is no scientific proof for this answer, you would actually be able to see visual evidence of the toxins soaked up by the patches. This alone is not enough evidence however; seeing the toxins sink into the patches should be coupled with feeling better, which few folks I interviewed testified to. It is paramount that your body becomes detoxified. That is when it works! Seeing the toxins soaked in the pads or becoming darker and lighter does not indicate effectiveness, not until you see changes in your own body.

Market witnessed the production of fake products, while the vast number of affiliate blogs led to the selling of these poorly produced detox pads to people. It was the complaints of these people which led to the banning of the pads. To be truthful, we should not use the flop of one product to generalize the whole when it comes to health. What should have happened to enable the whole world to identify quality products is a careful evaluation and an in-depth research on each individual product. But who will blame the government when the manufacturers were just multiplying every day? It would have being a waste of funds and time for the government.

Now, you can either believe the detox patch works and go for one.. or avoid buying one. No one will blame you for this. After all, foot pads are not the only methods of detoxification. There are several measures, such as the cleansing of your living environment, the reduction of your daily exposure and consumption of toxic compounds, purging and regular intake of water, sweating, timely urinating and defecating, etc.

How to identify quality Foot Detox Pads

As it stands now, I believe there are just two ways to identifying quality detox pads:

  1. Recommendation from a trusted person: There are quite a good number of websites out there claiming to sell the best products. There are also many reviews written on these websites but not all of them are truthful. Therefore, recommendation received by a friend, colleagues or any of your family members can enable you to choose the best pads out there. This does not only enable you choose the best, but also saves you from wasting your hard-earned dollars on fake and poorly produced foot pads.
  2. Trial by error: Foot detox pads prices range from 15-30 dollars. It’s a big amount, but you may decide to give one a try to see if it works or not. If it works fine, good, and if it doesn’t, you may want to try from another manufacturer or let it go. You may eventually identify the best after trying two or three products from different sources. This may be hard to do, considering that you may end up spending your money foolishly, but since research, which should include how each pad is manufactured, the ingredients used during its manufacture, and, most of all, the person or company promoting the product, is not embarked upon by the government, I believe you don’t have more than these two options. It’s my candid opinion.

There are a few foot detox pads that work fine (www.bodypure.com), but there are others capable of causing problems to your health. My advice is that you go for pads that neither have fillers nor pose any risk to safety. You should only purchase detox pads that have been tested for skin irritations, are free from designated microbial species and are safe and free from microorganisms.

The vast multiplication of online stores and fake foot detox pads makes purchasing quality products daunting but calling my points to mind will enable you to make the best choice – and at the end of the day, if we can really get a ‘spa treatment’ while we sleep, why not give it a shot?

Are E Cigarettes A Healthier Alternative to the Real Thing

e cigarettes kitIt is common knowledge that cigarettes are bad for you. Studies have shown that they can cause cancer, emphysema, breathing problems, and birth defects. Knowing everything that we do about smoking, its hard not to ask, “why do we still smoke”. There can be many answers to that question but the best answer is that it is an addiction, an addiction to nicotine. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get that nicotine that we crave without the risk to our health? Thanks to electronic cigarettes, we finally can.

An electronic cigarette contains liquid nicotine. When you inhale on the cigarette, the nicotine heats up and turns into a e-liquid vapor. Electronic cigarettes work the same way as a real cigarette does because the vapor delivers the nicotine into your body the same way smoke does.
One huge advantage that e cigs have over a cigarette is that there are no toxins in the e cigs vapor as there are in smoke from a cigarette. When smoking e-cigs, you are not damaging your lungs and you are also not subjecting those around you to second hand smoke.

When you smoke a cigarette, the smell of the smoke sticks to you and it tends to stink. The e-cigs vapor does not have an odor so you will no longer smell like a smoker. Cigarettes can also yellow your teeth and your fingers. This will no longer be an issue with the e-cigarette.
Many public places these days do not allow you to smoke. If you are smoking e-cigs, you can smoke them in public because you are not exposing the public to the toxins of cigarette smoke. When you smoke e-cigs, you no longer have to stand out in the cold to smoke.

You may think that e cigarettes kits will not be like the cigarettes that you smoke now. This is not true. The electronic cigarette comes in the same flavors that you smoke now. The e cigarette also comes in the same strength that you smoke now. Whether you enjoy regular or menthol, or full strength or lite, you can find e cigarettes to fit your taste.

Getting this excellent alternative to cigarettes is easy. Simply click on our electronic cigarette UK website, you can find starter kits, cartridges, and chargers for your cigarettes.
Considering that you can prevent yourself and those around you from getting sick from cigarette smoke, why not try an e cigarette. Trying could change your life.

Why Drug Testing is Important

drug testiAccording to Drug-Free Workplace Act, employees require no explicit drug testing procedures in their workplaces. Even some states prohibited this practice and a federal employer can only exercise it with special requirement permissions. But, cases are not the same for private employers. They granted this drug testing right that includes a wide range of substances. Employers need to get themselves familiarized with applicable state & federal laws before adopting any drug testing program.

Imagine you are an employer & you want to test your staffs, then you need to have apparent reasons that support your cause. Let’s find out a few legitimate motives-

  • Detecting any person with drug issues
  • To ensure safety of the employees
  • To claim the healthcare compensation benefits
  • Rehabilitation of the employees
  • To maintain a drug-free environment

Some promotional things need to be carried out if you are to implement your drug testing policy in the company. We might suggest some-

  • Prevent hiring any person who is a drug addict
  • Discourage the staffs from this practice
  • Improve the workplace safety
  • Promote customer safety

The Drug Testing Procedure

In common, the process start with a blood test. In some cases, hair samples are also taken for accurate results. But, the urinalysis is the most preferred method and the cheapest around too. However, some illegal drugs require special detection test rather than these common techniques.

What to do if Positive?

An employee with a positive result in the drug tests may undergo punishment or even termination depending upon the charges. Of course, when not found guilty, the employee can  charge a defamation case for wrongful accusations. If the company is investing on reliable drug tests & ensuring test permission, then there is no need to be concerned.

Accurate Test Design

In order to analyze  & administer drug test results,the company must choose a laboratory that is certified by NIDA (National Institute Of Drug Abuse).When accuracy & reliability is the main concern, only the competent laboratory can assure the safety of the company from defamation charges. Some labs don’t test every category of drugs, so it is important for the company to select one that is capable of testing a wide range of drugs.

Split sample methods are very effective. In this method only a small portion of the specimen will be tested initially while they will preserve the rest of it for future analysis.  This step opens the options for re-testing if any question of accuracy arises.

As an employer you should have all the basic knowledge of the test procedures. You have to remember that error free & accurate results can render better outcome.

Being aware of the potential for false positives is equally important as well. It is seen that even counter medications yield positive results at times.

It is mandatory for the tests to include safeguards against fraud. Only the NIDA certified labs can provide fraud prevention techniques for the employers.

Drug testing in workplaces has become a modern practice &it is getting huge popularities day by day.

3 Steps to Quit Smoking for Good

e-cigaretteAre you ready to give up smoking once and for all? This habit kills millions of people every year. It’s actually the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S. Yet, about one in five Americans smokes cigarettes regularly, and more than 16 million suffer from smoking-related diseases. Studies have linked cigarette smoking to an increased risk of lung cancer, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, stroke, blindness, erectile dysfunction, and arthritis.

The health effects of smoking should not be overlooked. Not to mention the expenses involved. So, here are three steps to stop smoking for good:

Identify Your Triggers

Decide why you want to quit smoking in the first place. Try to determine what triggers the urge to smoke. Do you feel the need to do it when you’re alone or in social settings? Are there certain people or activities associated with smoking? Do you reach for cigarettes when you’re anxious or stressed out? The whole idea is to identify your triggers so you can avoid them in the future.

Make a Plan

The next step is to determine whether you want to go cold turkey or quit smoking gradually. Both strategies have pros and cons. About 90 percent of people give up this habit without therapy or medications. However, going cold turkey isn’t necessarily the most effective method. If you decide to quit gradually, there are plenty of NRT products to help you. These include nicotine gum, patches, lozenges, and nasal sprays.

Switch to Electronic Cigarettes

One of the best ways to quit smoking is using electronic cigarettes (check out our best e cigarette pick). These devices are cheaper and safer than traditional cigarettes, featuring a wide range of flavors like cherry, vanilla, and peach. Since they produce vapor instead of ash, smoke, and tar, you may use them in bars, clubs, and public places. E-cigarettes run on lithium batteries and come in different strengths.

In addition to these smoking cessation methods, you may try counseling, medications, self-help quitting programs, and hypnosis. Most people quit smoking by using e cigarettes or NRT products along with psychotherapy.

Different Ways to Treat Warts

Warts before removalThere are millions of people around the world that have warts on their skin. These warts are a minor skin condition that can make you feel embarrassed in front of other people. Some warts can have a similar appearance to moles, but unlike moles they are non cancerous. These warts can show up on just about any area on the body. If you have warts chances are you are trying to find different things you can do to remove them.

In this article I’m going to go over some of the most common removal methods you can use to get rid of warts. Before you do anything you need to go to the doctor first and get the warts checked. Many times warts will look like other skin conditions. You have to know for sure you’re dealing with a wart before you start to treating it as such. There are numerous doctors and dermatologists out there that specialize in identifying warts and removing them. These professionals will determine if you have a wart by taking a sample of your blood.

If you know for certain you have a wart then there are many ways to treat the problem. If you go to a doctor or dermatologist they’ll most likely recommend over the counter products that contain sacylic acid. The acid will burn away the warts from your skin, but if you have sensitive skin it could leave a mark behind. Another method doctors use to remove warts is freezing it away with a solution like liquid nitrogen.

Another way doctors will remove warts is by using laser procedures. These procedures work by passing the laser beam over the top layer of your skin where the warts are situated. Once the beam of the laser passes over the top layer of your skin it will kill the blood cells that supply blood to the warts. Most of the time no anesthesia is required during these removal procedures.

If medical treatments aren’t something you’re interested in you can give home remedies a try. These home remedies are cheap to use and they have less a chance of leaving behind scars. One of the most popular ways to remove warts at home is to use duct tape. You simply cut a piece of the tape big enough to cover the entire area that’s been affected and keep it in position over night. When you wake up in the morning remove the tape and scrub the area with an emery board. Applying some tea tree oil to the affected area can also help too.

Best Natural Treatments for Hair Loss

hair loss cycleThere are various treatments that can be used to treat hair loss. Most people don’t know that natural treatments can provide some of the best results when it comes to promoting hair growth. Of course, there are medications and surgical procedures that can be used to produce similar results. However, these treatment procedures can leave behind scars and cause other unpleasant side effects.

The basis for treating your hair loss naturally is to eat healthy. When you eat healthy foods your hair will have much more potentially to grow in a healthy way. Believe it or not, the types of foods you consume daily will play a key role in how healthy your hair is. Without the proper nutrition your hair won’t be able to grow properly.

The types of foods you should eat more of on a daily basis are high protein foods that are low in carbs, and have a low amount of fat. Some of these foods include walnuts, tuna, spinach, and sunflower seeds. By eating foods like these on a daily basis you’ll be able to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth.

If your diet doesn’t include enough B vitamins you can also expect to experience some level of hair loss. When it comes to healthy hair growth you need to consume more vitamin B rich foods such as chicken, soybeans, liver, and fish. If you can’t get these nutrients in your daily diet then you can take vitamins and supplements.

Other than consuming the right amount of minerals, vitamins, and nutrients daily you can also make use of herbal remedies. Using herbs to prevent hair loss and promote natural hair growth has been around for many years. One of the most popular herbs used to stop hair loss and promote hair growth is saw palmetto. Many studies have been done using saw palmetto to see how effective it is.

This herb works by inhibiting the activity of DHT, which is the main cause of male or female pattern baldness. By taking saw palmetto you can inhibit the activity of the DHT hormone causing your hair follicles to stop reproducing.

Another herb that’s very popular is nettle. Nettles contain great nutrition that will stop the production of DHT and help your hair grow more effectively. Other herbs that are used for treating hair loss naturally include rosemary, ginger, green tea, and horsetail.

There are definitely other treatment methods available that can help hair loss sufferers. The natural treatments listed in this article are only a small portion of the amount of different options there are available.
