According to reflexology system and Chinese beliefs, natural energy zones, which are directly related to important body systems and organs, are located on our feet. So, through these zones, we can effectively cleanse our body from the accumulated toxins.
Here are the ways to detoxify your body through your feet:
Ionic Foot Bath
An ionic foot bath is similar to electrolysis, which in order to cause a potent chemical reaction, an electrical current is being used. The warm water opens up the pores while the salt acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
The ions from the bath will be absorbed by the feet. Once the water becomes dark, it means that the toxins have been pulled out of the body.
Here are some of the great salt detox recipes:
