We finally got around to examining this popular item, and whether it's just bunk, or a true cleansing experience that benefits the body.
My friend is so concerned about her cute, little, perfect feet. In college, she was always bragging about her straight toes and beautiful arches . She was constantly pedicuring, and sloughing away tiny callouses.
Well, we of the size 9 hooves, ha ha, are happy to report, that detox foot pads appear to be nothing but a waste of money. Yes, we are aware that many people love these foot patches, and claim their migraine headaches disappeared, arthritis pain was relieved, stress evaporated, and energy was gained.
Who's to say the consumer is wrong?
So we dug a bit deeper, and found Dr. Z's Medical Report (http://www.healthtalk.com/). Dr. Ed Zimney went a step further and called the Kinoki foot pads a scam, unsupported by any credible science.
"They make a big deal about how the pads go on clean and white and come off dirty and brown. What else would you expect from applying vinegar-soaked adhesive gauze to the bottom of your feet? It’s bound to pull off dead skin, dirt and debris - but toxins, parasites, cellulite, heavy metals, and the like? No way. I’m sorry, but you can add your comments below if you think I’m closed-minded, unknowledgeable or otherwise deaf to a new miracle cure, but these things are just not coming out of the bottoms of your feet! No I haven’t tried them and no I have no hard data to back up my assertion that they don’t work, but here it is anyway: they don’t work! The skin doesn’t work that way, the lymphatic system doesn’t work that way. The immune system doesn’t work that way. There is just no physiologic mechanism for these types of things to pass through your skin, regardless of what you might apply to it (even “double-distilled bamboo vinegar!)."
We have no proof these detox foot patches/pads don't work. These pads can't hurt you, as far as we know.
