similar to foot bath topic...

Postby makingachange on Fri Nov 18, 2005 5:37 pm

while looking around at the sanijets and inflatables and so on, i stumbled across the foot detox system

www.detoxinternational.net

they also have 'detox patches'... curious to know your thoughts about this?

i'm always so skeptical, the foot bath system has intrigued me though. oh, and the sanijet runs over 1K.

thanks in advance for your thoughts

Hehe... unfortunately, I learned about that from finding "debunking" websites trying to debunk things *I* like, such as muscle testing, reiki, etc.

But this foot bath thing seems pretty straight forward... reminds me of a "gallstone flush" that appears to work due to a chemical reaction during digestion of the ingredients, which forms little balls that pass through and are then claimed as flushed gallstones.

detox foot spa, Liver stones and feet patches

Postby detox guy on Mon Jun 05, 2006 11:37 am

I've used the foot spas, patches and the cleanse in my profession so guess what side of the fence I'm on.

I've found all of these treatments to works very well and for clients to report good results and come back for more.

Best advise I can give you is try it out, If you dont get any benefit then you wont come back for more.

If these things where fake, they would soon fizzle out. Some people make claims that aren't true or accurate and this tends to be what muddy's the water for skeptics (pun intended)

I'd "try it out" if it was free to try. But around here, one treatment can cost nearly $100. Given that I fall firmly in the court of "skeptic," I'll save the $100 for something else.

(Funny how these old posts can bring out the single reply defenders... :? )

My chiro offers a similar treatment. He only charges $5 if you do it along with a regular adjustment appt. I think it is $25 on its own. I have had it done and found I feel better afterward. I should probably have it done more regularly but since I usually have my preschoolers with me it isn't always reasonable to sit the with my feet in the foot bath and them running all over just out of my reach. LOL

Just curious are you a practicing Reflexologist detox guy?

Thanks for sharing the link with us. Sounds like the detox bath's benefits have been misconstrued like ear coning. Guess we're not interested enough in the fact that complementary and alternative medicine HELPS the body to achieve homeostasis, NOT cure us of our ailments. LOL.

I'm not a reflexologist, the detox spa is my main gig, but when I came across the post I thought I'd chip in with mt 2 pence.
