Detoxification Foot Patch?
Hi,I was walking around Montreal's Chinatown yesterday & something in the window of a herbal medicine shop caught my eye. It looked like a box of huge band-aids. Apparantly, you wear them on your feet when you sleep. The bandange goes on looking clean & white. When you remove it in the morning, its supposed to be black/brown & covered with shmutz that comes out of feet. It's treated with some kind of natural products that help pull toxins from your body, through your feet. I never heard of this before. When I got home, I googled "toxins feet pads" & a bunch of hits came up. Here's a link to a before & after pic of the pads:http://www.novadetox.co.uk/before_after.jpgI was wondering if anyone has every tried these? I don't know anything about eastern medicine. I've read these patches work according to the precepits of reflexology. I dunno. There might be another reason these things turn black overnight, aside from your feet being dirty, like some weird science ish. Maybe its a scam like those detoxifying foot baths:http://harosingapore.blogspot.com/2006/01/evil-toxins-shit-thru-feet.htmlHere is a link to a site with more info about the patch:http://www.foot-patch.com/131.htmThey claim that they can pull urinary substances from outta your feet. Do we got piss in our feet? I don't know schitt about health. Some crazy ish. Anyhoo, happy & healthy 2008 y'all.peaceh
