The newest health fad, ionic foot detoxes, seem to be talked about a lot.
The term “ionic foot bath” may not seem familiar, but you probably have seen the infomercials about foot patches or foot baths that pull all the toxins out of your body through your feet, leaving you with a patch or bath full of brown liquid (aka the toxins).

The question is, is this a bunch of rubbish or something science hasn’t quite figured out why it works yet?

Well, they used to think that meditation was some new age crap that had no real application to health, now look at what we know to be true. All I know is that I’m willing to stay open minded is all.

This foot detox method is an ancient Chinese medicine healing method, which is based on the theory of reflexology that foot meridians are connected to other parts of the human body.

As a result of this, you can actually get rid of your inner toxins as well as detoxify your body by taking foot detox baths.


Taking ionic foot bath helps eliminate toxins from your body. The only thing you should do is use salt as an excellent astringent that has anti-inflammatory properties, and warm water in order to open your pores.

In case the water becomes dark, this suggests that the detoxification process has been successful. Here are also a few recipes for this foot detox bath you may want to try:

– Clay Detox Bath


1/2 cup Epsom salt

1/2 cup bentonite clay

2 drops lavender essential oil


Put the Epsom salt and essential oil in hot water. Then, allow them to dissolve. Mix the bentonite clay with some water. Make sure you don’t use metal while doing this step.

Next, add the clay in the hot tub and then soak for twenty minutes. Taking this detox bath will help detoxify your entire body as well as help increase your magnesium levels.

– Oxygen Detox Bath


1 tablespoon organic ginger powder

2 cups hydrogen peroxide


Put the hydrogen peroxide and dried ginger powder in a tub containing hot water. Soak in the bath for about 30 minutes. Not only this bath helps detoxify your body, but it can also make your skin smooth and flawless and soothe irritations and allergies.

– Salt Detox Bath


2 cups baking soda

1 cup Epsom salt

1 cup sea salt

2 teaspoons organic apple cider vinegar

2 drops lavender essential oil


Put the baking soda in a tub containing boiling water and then allow it to dissolve. Then, add some apple cider vinegar. Afterward, add the essential oil and salt and then soak in the bath for 30 minutes.

You may feel exhausted or weak after the bath, which means that your body has been detoxified effectively. This salt detox bath will detoxify your body, alleviate skin irritation, and increase your magnesium levels.


You can use foot detox pads to detoxify your body. Simply put the foot detox pads before bedtime. The next morning, remove them. In case they are dark, this indicates that your body has been detoxified effectively. These detox pads are available in each health store.

Detox foot patches are not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and therefore, cannot make claims to treat or cure your medical condition. Some people say it’s a scam, while other report positive results. In my opinion, worst case scenario it’s a placebo effect, but a positive nonetheless.
