I tried a detox and not just a regular food or cleanse detox but a foot detox. I know you've seen all the ads for those patches you put on your feet and everyone is all "They're a scam. They don't work. It's just your sweat that makes them turn all black. Blah blah."
Well I thought why spend good ol money when I could make my own? So after searching hours on the interwebs I only found two recipes for foot detoxing so I combined them and they worked! At least they did on me. I was feeling under the weather this morning so I thought I'd give it a try. Holy smelly, Batman! It's a good thing no one but me was in the house.
Yes, it smells dreadful but after 4 hours and a shower I feel great. In fact I haven't felt this energized in quite some time.
So here are the two sites I got the recipes from:
I didn't have the dandelion root oil or the milk thistle so I didn't add them. I also didn't have vitamin c but used EmergenC drink powder instead. I also added some fresh ginger to the brew. So I brewed this concoction for 30 minutes.
I also did not have the pads so I jimmy rigged some gauze pads and ace bandage tape. I also thought what's good for the feet could also be good for the armpits so I stuck pads there too.
My armpits felt like fire for about 20 minutes then just a warm sensation. I think it's from the cayenne pepper. So I only kept those on for about two hours. Funny thing is, when I took them off it looked as though it had whitened the skin where they were applied.
After 6 hours on my feet; I didn't get the dark change you see in the pictures on Earth Star Mammas blog but it looked as though the skin was, well, melted? I guess thats the closes explanation. It didn't hurt but I think it just took off the old skin that was there. I wiped my feet off with the pad and again saw that my feet were lightened where the pad was.
I cleaned off the stink of the combo of vinegar, onions, garlic, ginger mix in the shower. About 20 minutes after the shower I was up and about with an energy I haven't felt in months. Cleaned the house, worked on crafts, made dinner and still I'm not exhausted at all. By this time any other day I'd be dragging ass.
I know everyone is different and may have different effects but for me I'm keeping this recipe for those days I need to recoup.
Let me know if you try it too and how it made you feel in the comments.
