Information - Happy Feet Foot Patches - Detoxification 5 pairs
Foot patches are a simple non-invasive and natural way to detox the body. They simply warm up and stimulate the soles of your feet whilst you sleep. Over the past 50 years 100's of different chemicals have been introduced into our environment from the food and water we drink to the air we breathe. A build-up of toxins in the body can lead to an imbalance and health problems. Foot patches maintain a powerful reputation in traditional folk medicine, with a well documented use in China that dates back over 500 years. Simple yet effective, foot patches are based on the principles of Eastern medicine, which teaches that toxins move away from the heart and towards the extremities of the body - including the feet, where toxins accumulate. In traditional Chinese medicine the feet are regarded as your "second heart" and a mirror of internal health. During the day, when you're standing up and moving about, gravity pulls toxins down towards the feet. Foot patches are designed around this principle. Simply place one to six patches on the body at bedtime. You might be surprised to find that a clean, white patch can become soggy, wet and black after 8-12 hours of use.
You simply apply the patches to the soles of your feet when you go to bed and let the patches absorb the toxins whilst you sleep. Many people apply the patches to other parts of the body such as a sore knee or shoulder.Simply remove the backing from the plaster Place the patch in the middle of the plaster sheet making sure that the writing is face down on the plaster. The waffle weaver side of the patch will be in contact with your foot. You can apply the patch to either the heel of each foot or the centre of each foot. Press the plaster onto the foot firmly. Leave the patches on for approximately 8-12 hours. In the morning the patches will have become wet and may smell. It is recommended that you remove the patches in the bathroom as they can make your feet quite sticky. The stickiness is normal and will reduce slightly each day. You can keep them and compare each day as you progress. Particular areas of the foot patch maybe darker than others, which is an indication of parts of the body that are getting the greatest benefits. You can experiment with where to place the patches on your feet.
Ingredients - ionic tourmaline minerals • chitosan • vitamin C • ginger • eucalyptus leaf • powdered pearl shell • starch • tree sap vinegar • bamboo sap vinegar Ingredients Explained Tourmaline Tourmaline is best known as one of the only minerals to naturally emit far- infrared heat and negative ions. Tourmaline exerts a cleansing and liberating energy that has a very positive effect on the body Tree Essence or Wood Vinegar Wood sap vinegar is made by the burning of wood to charcoal, distilling the condensation. From the charcoal kiln, smoke billows upward. When this smoke is cooled and condensed, a thick brown /black liquid results. This liquid is raw pyroligneous acid (wood vinegar). From this raw material, further refining is carried out to remove the tar and any other undesirable elements. The result is a beautiful liquid of a pale yellow color (very weak tea). This liquid is then aged for up to a year to produce the final high quality wood vinegar that can be consumed as a health tonic. It is condensed five times and contains no synthetic vinegar or starch. After the initial extraction process, the extract is dried for a period of six months. It is then filtered four times using the highest quality Umbamegashi-Binchou Charcoal. It is then dried one more time for an additional six months before it can be considered for use. This process yields a very concentrated extract with an extremely high level of purity. Wood vinegar and bamboo extract are naturally condensed 5 times until both become a powder. This drying phase lasts for a period of over 8 months and makes for an exceptional purity of product. Then finally this essence, after a last quality control test, goes into the Foot Patch. Research conducted by two Japanese doctors over a 26 years period have unlocked a beneficial mystery behind the longevity and homeostasis (enhanced state of wellness and resistance to disease) of trees. They showed Tree Essence has tremendous absorption qualities and a positive effect on many functions of the body. Tree Essence, or pyroligneous acid, is a sap extracted from tree cells. It exhibits exceptional permeability and sterilizing properties. Dehydrated tree saps infiltrate, absorb, detoxify, and sterilize. Eucalyptus Leaf The Eucalyptus tree, for example, is probably the most powerful antiseptic in its class as ozone is formed upon exposure to air. It has a proven disinfectant action destroying unhealthy flora and microbes. This tree grows to over 350 feet and is amongst the tallest trees in the world. To provide enough water to it's upper most part, it has an amazing capacity to absorb water. The tree ability to purify large amounts of ground water through the roots into high quality water transported into the trunk and leaves, as well as harnessing the absorbing and detoxifying power of the wood sap, made the sap a natural ingredient for human use. It radiates a fine fragrance and has a sterilization effect to its surroundings. Pearl Powder Pearl powder has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to soothe, promote a feeling of well being. Ginger Ginger, Zingiber officinale, is derived from the tuberous rhizome of the perennial plant of the Zingiberaceae. Ginger has been used as a price, condiment and flavouring agent. Meanwhile, Ginger has also played an important role in Asian medicine as a folk remedy to promote cleansing of the body through perspiration, to calm nausea, and to stimulate the appetite for thousands of years. Ginger was also used as a carminative and in the symptomatic treatment of colds. It has been used in China and other countries for many years as a tonic. Ginger contains gingerol, a Ginger oleoresin (combination of volatile oils and resin) that accounts for the characteristics aroma of Ginger, and explains its therapeutic properties. Chitosan Chitosan is the name given to the polymers that are obtained by the deacetylation of chitin (poly-b-1,4-D-N-acetylglucosamine). In industrial-scale procedures, chitin is produced by treating seafood waste, especially shells from crustaceans (shrimps, crabs, lobsters, krills, etc). Chitosan is the result of the biomass research. Chitosan products have been used now for over 30 years by water companies to trap toxins, grease, heavy metals, and oils. It is the second most plentiful fibre, after cellulose. Chitosan products are also used extensively by the medical profession due to their remarkable ability to promote wound healing to injuries such as burns and skin inflammation. Starch- Rice Dextrin is a product of starch hydrolysis, a carbohydrate having the same general molecular structure as starch but with a smaller and less complex molecule with adhesive properties. Its presence is necessary in our foot patches as a filler, and also to bind other ingredients together. Beware of claims for foot patches made without dextrin, as this is misleading. Without dextrin, foot patches will not work, like a car running without tyres. However, keeping the amount of dextrin low in the foot patches is the best way to achieve optimum results. Foot patches with high amounts of dextrin, and with low amounts of vinegar, gives less benefit and poor results, although the smell of the vinegar is less pungent.
