Detox Foot-Baths

Get rid of all the bad toxins in your body with this one easy product, the Detox foot-bath! Detox foot baths are a commonly used practice in detox and rehab clinics around the world and they literally do nothing. People spend tons of money on these ‘magical’ foot baths that have no scientific evidence or proof to them at all.

Detox footbath is another topic brought up in a class I have had before and we have gone over before extensively. A Detox footbath is essentially a bath where an electrically current is passed in order to draw the “toxins” from your body. Your toxins will change the water color depending on how many toxins are taken out. Its actually just a simple science experiment that can be done, but still is used by many physicians and clinics.

The main point of detox is to make the body’s pH more alkaline and separate the good and bad ions from your body through your feet. Apparently an alkaline body is crucial to a person’s health and not having one can cause more diseases to happen.

What really happens when you put your feet into this electrical current though? The real chemical process that is happening when the color changes is from the electrolytic corrosion of the metal electrodes in the water. The water can contain some iron, nickel, and even copper, which would contribute to the color. The amount of salt and the pH of the water can greatly change the colors that would result as well. These colors are supposed to be the bad “toxins” leaving the body when its just a simple science experiment.

The implications and complications that can come from something like this is what happens with all scam medical products, people will actually think they are being helped. Sick people will spend lots of money on these products to cleanse themselves when its really doing nothing and in turn making them worse.
