It helps to prevent the accumulation of toxins in the body, thus substantially reducing the chances of illness, disease and removing harmful body toxins. How do the foot pads work? For hundreds of years, eastern medicine understood toxins traveled downwards in the body accumulating in the tips of our toes and ankles. They also understood that toxin accumulation leads to many degenerative diseases. For example, painful rheumatism and arthritis were caused by acidic toxic fluids gathering around the joints. In foot reflexology, the feet are considered channels to many vital organs, with over 60 acupuncture points on the soles of our feet. The foot pads contain natural ingredients which stimulate these acupuncture points through the combined action of wood/bamboo vinegar, far-infrared energy, and negative ion emissions. This stimulation results in the breakdown of water and waste molecules that free blockages in the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Cleansing naturally begins in the soles of our feet. The primary effect of the Kinoki Detox Foot Pads is detoxification. The patches will absorb your toxins after using for the whole night. You can see that from the changing of the color after using it. The dirtier you see the foot pad, the more toxins it has absorbed.
