I have recently been receiving many concerned e-mails and phone calls regarding the effectiveness of detox foot pads. Some reports are incorrectly stating that ALL detox foot pads are a scam. I feel it is my duty to share with everyone my thoughts on this.
Why Should I Check Each Product?
These recent reports focus on one of many detox foot pads on the market called Kinoki Detox Foot Pads. As with many nutritional products and healthcare devices; there are good products and generic or bad copies of good products. Take for example Green Tea, Vitamin A, or even Calcium supplements.
- Most green tea comes from China or India and may be contaminated with toxic pesticides, insecticides, arsenic (the number one cancer causing agent) and many other toxins etc.
- Many supplements are made using synthetic vitamins that are actually toxic to the body.
- And, let's not forget about all of the calcium products on the market containing calcium carbonate which is nothing more than chalk, which may actually cause a calcium deficiency in the body.
The same is true for detox foot pads. Before believing everything we hear, we simply can't afford to generalize from the one to the whole when it comes to our health. Careful evaluation and research should be performed on for each individual product. This research should include the way they are manufactured, the ingredients used during manufacturing in the product, and, most of all, the person or company promoting the product before. This should be done before we make general allegations which incorporate all products as a whole.
The Danger of Less-than-Thorough Research
In the case of the Kinoki detox footpads, I believe these articles and reports are correct and I applaud the writers for exposing the truth. However, one should not associate all detox foot pads with cheap generic versions that have no research backing them up. It's like saying all vitamins are a scam, if one synthetic vitamin supplement hurts someone or does not produce results. We already lost our right to sell one of the most effective amino acids (L-Tryptophan) because of one contaminated batch. For this very reason it has taken us years of fighting the government agencies to get this product approved for sale again. We should always do our research carefully and not believe that all things are bad after one company's bad product is exposed in an article or TV broadcast. If you search online or in medical Journals you can find a negative report or article about every vitamin, mineral, prescription medication or healthcare device ever produced. Does that mean they are all bad? What makes a good physician or product manufacturer is someone who is credible in their research, actually cares about the consumer's health, and one who uses the highest quality, proven ingredients anywhere in the world.
Why Should I Consider Detox Foot Pads?
I have personally used quality well-made Detox Foot Pads and researched them over seven years and have received great results, especially with sleep disorders. I learned that there were many poorly produced detox pads on the market and people needed a product they could trust. Because of the benefits I have received and witnessed, I decided to develop the highest quality organic detox foot pads on the market. In the past 10 years, I have not had to buy or replace any product. But hey, I'm not perfect and I always keep an open mind and am willing to listen and evaluate new products. And, I love challenges. I even offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on our products. If you do not feel the results or even if you simply are not happy with the product, I will gladly give you a full refund.
Please note, however, that I do not recommend or claim a foot detox is the only thing you need to cleanse your body. There is no such thing as a magic bullet approach to good health. About the closest thing would be a raw food diet in a far away land with no external exposure to toxins. To obtain a healthy body, I recommend the following:
- Opening up your elimination routes (sweating, breathing, urinating, defecating, and menses)
- Regular colon cleansing
- Multiple liver and gallbladder cleanses
- Purging harmful organisms from your system
- Detoxifying your body from chemicals and heavy metals
I also recommend addressing the root cause of these toxins by cleansing your living environment and reducing your daily exposure and consumption of toxic compounds.
