According to The National Health Association, there’s growing evidence that acupuncture can treat a variety of conditions including toothache, back pain, headaches, nausea and inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis. Acupuncture has been used for millennia, and despite the skepticism and controversy around it, it’s still going strong.
Foot pads and acupuncture
It may sound weird to you, but there’s really a link between acupuncture and foot pads. According to a new research, acupuncture can boost the function of the autonomic nervous system in a similar way as the detox pads.
The foot detox pads have been used as a non-invasive detox treatment for a long time, and thousands of people claim that they really work. They stimulate the liver and kidney meridians and boost the metabolic rate at which kidney and liver cells detoxify the body. The mechanism behind it is actually reflexology, an ancient healing technique that stimulates so-called “reflex” points on the body to eliminate toxins and chemicals. We all lead a pretty sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle nowadays, which, combined with the poor diet makes our bodies full of toxins and waste which can have detrimental effects on our health.
Luckily, the foot detox pads are an easy, cheap and quick way of removing toxins from our body. Here’s how to prepare them at home:
- ¼ cup of ACV
- Adhesive gauze pads
Pour the ACV in a pot and let it boil, then add the onion and garlic and simmer the mixture for about 10 minutes. Leave the mixture to cool down afterwards, then add a bit on the center of the gauze pads, squeeze the excess liquid out and apply them on your soles. Put on a pair of socks and go to bed – in the morning, remove the pads and they should be dark from all the toxins they absorbed.
Repeat the process every night before going to bed and you will feel much better soon.
