How to detoxify from the feet according to Chinese reflexology through foot baths and detox bandages

According to the Chinese system of foot reflexology, the detoxication of the body can also start from piedi. But how to proceed with this type of detox? Some special foot baths come to our aid ...

Foot reflexology argues that the different areas of our feet are related to the organ and tissue system of our body. This is why, according to this theory, it would be possible to eliminate some toxins from the body even starting from the feet.

Very simple treatments can be carried out for this purpose. These are footbaths in which particular and expertly blended natural ingredients are used. There are several recipes in which, to detoxify the body of toxins, various types of salt or clay or hydrogen peroxide are used.


Detoxifying foot bath with salt

To create this foot bath you need:

  • 1 cup of Epsom salts
  • 1 cup of sea salt
  • 2 cups of baking soda
  • Essential oils (optional)
  • Bowl of boiling water

In boiling water, dissolve all the ingredients well and when it is of an acceptable temperature, soak your feet for about half an hour. This foot bath could cause you to experience fatigue and weakness but it is also able to soothe any skin irritations and above all to detoxify the body.

Detox foot bath with bentonite (clay)

To prepare this foot bath you will need:

  • Bentonite (half cup)
  • Epsom salts (half cup)
  • Essential oils (optional)
  • Basin with hot water

Dissolve the Epsom salts in hot water to which, if you like, you can add some essential oil with purifying power such as lemon, grapefruit, juniper or cypress. Then mix the clay with a small amount of water, taking care to turn with a wooden spoon and not a metal one. Once melted, add the clay to the foot bath and you will soak your feet for about 20 minutes.

Detox bath with hydrogen peroxide and ginger

This is a detoxifying bath recommended for the whole body and not just for the feet. To make it you need:

  • 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 tablespoon of dried ginger powder

Fill the tub with hot water and add the dried ginger and hydrogen peroxide. At this point, to obtain improvements in the skin and promote purification of the body, just stay immersed for a good half hour.

Detox foot bandages

There are also special bandages for detoxification starting from the feet made with natural substances and which must be applied before going to sleep. In the morning they must be removed and, if they have darkened, it means that they have done their job, that is, they have pulled the toxins out of the body. If you want to try them, they can be found in well-stocked herbal shops but above all online.

Of course, all these remedies can work better if you combine them with good hydration (therefore drink plenty of water), a healthy diet, an outdoor life (in nature) and a little physical activity.
