An effective method to clean the body of toxins through the feet.


The Chinese reflexology lists methods to detoxify the body using ingredients found in every home, reported Daily Organic Recipes.

The feet have natural energy zones and they are linked directly to important organs in the human body, according to the Chinese reflexology system.

The feet and other similar zones help detoxify and clean the body of toxins keeping you healthier. Here are ways through which one can keep the body clean through the feet.

The foot bath

This method closely resembles electrolysis in which electrical current creates a powerful chemical reaction. 


The warm water helps open up the pores in the feet, while the salt works as an anti-inflammatory agent.

The most important part of the process is that the ions are absorbed in the feet which then clean the body of toxins. When the salt gets dark, it is a clear indication of the method doing its job.
