Detox Foot Pads

You've heard about the latest craze in the health world: detox foot pads. These pads are a supposed hero cure for getting rid of toxins, heavy metals, and other nasty things out of your body.  Manufacturers of these products claim that by simple application of the pads to your feet overnight will give you healthier body and renewed energy.  The proof of the pads "power" is through the discolored material of the pads after removing them from your feet when you wake up.  As with anything hyped, remember that what is claimed may not always be what you'll get.  While the phrase "detox foot pads scam" can be passed around lightly from skeptics, with proper research, we can come to a conclusion ourselves.

What are Japanese Detox Foot Pads?

Detox pads are manufactured using formulas rooting from ancient Japanese and other Asian cultural medicine.  Using many alternative medicines, herbs, and ingredients, the pads are designed to pull the waste and toxins through your skin.  The concept behind detoxifying foot pads is reflexology, which believes that the organs are interconnected through the feet.  The waste, toxin, and poisons passing through these organs pool in the feet where products, like the detox pad can be designed to suck them out.

Do Detox Foot Pads Work?

Much of the hype around these pads may really just be: "hype" (if the research and investigation prooves true). But to be fair, many of the skeptics only tried these pads for a night and real detoxifying results would actually take a period of weeks or months. Plus, I've read "hand in the air" testimonials that detoxifying foot pads, like the ones in the video actually work.  The people giving the testimonials aren't what you would define as a "nut" or gullible and you have to definitely take their opinion into consideration.

Another thing I've noticed when researching detox pads are the people giving negative reviews only used the product once or twice, whereas the people giving the product positive reviews have been using the pads for more than a few weeks.  So in the end, you have to decide which side you should believe.  And if you're still unsure if you should try them or not, why not buy some and find out.  The best opportunites are often those that are passed up so if you think they can help you--don't pass.

I only used the Detox pads so far for one night and they were black when I took them off - I have arthritis and am quite stiff in the mornings for an hour or so, sometimes longer. I was not stiff at all this morning. And my knee and legs have felt better all day long.

I wish someone would analyse the pads after use to see what, if any, toxins have been removed.

I got my detox foot pads yesterday. I put them on last night. I woke up very agitated around 12:30 pm, and couldn't get back to sleep because of the horrible smell of the pad. I had to take it off and wash my feet. I don't know if they work, guess they're just not for me.

I believe the moisture from the body activates the contents in the pads to turn a dark color. As for helping the pain in my body I didn't notice a difference. The smell was awful that came from the pads. I also had to wash my feet several times.

I have been sufering with chronic pain in my whole gut area. I have had some test done to get to the root cause of all this. In the mean time I saw the foot pads @ the $$ store and bought some. The next morning I woke up pain free. I use them everyday until I can get my test results. It has been 9 days now of being pain free and 6 days of going to the bathroom regularly. I am all for the pads. Why they work for some and not others is unknown to me all I know is they DO WORK for me.

I bought these mudoku foot pads which are great for a $1.00 a box which contains 4 pads per box. All the websites have exploited this product like every other thing in the U.S. by selling one pad for one dollar. Don't people like you in the exploitation of health products, food, housing, insurance, education, transportation, gas,health insurance and services, telecommunication and utilities have done enough damage to this country by not only doubling the price of a product, but sometimes increasing the price 8x or sometimes even 16x the original price of the product. It is a disgrace ,contemptable and outright theft. It is people such as yourself and every other god forsaken greedmonger that should be put in jail for theft and exploitation of who has done this to the u.s. citizen especially in the other industries I mentioned above. It is done for their own self serving narcissistic greed. Spare me, I will make my own or buy them directly from the producer rather than make you rich at my expense.

I used the modoku detox pads the first day/night of my choice to be medication (addiction) free, and I do have to say I awoke, day two feeling great, and I do not have the detoxing symptoms of the hot and cold chills as I did the day before, I believe they work. I also have to say that i have more energy and feel Great!

Something in the pad is activated when the sweat from your feet moisten it, so the dark stuff are not toxins. We sweat more thru our feet and especially when something is covering them all night. I have used them, see no difference yet, but if they make some people feel better, even if it's all in their head, that's great. Keep using them if it makes you feel better. They won't harm you.

I believe the ingrediens are like the same in the instant heat pads, a form of iron maybe. Like-wise, Virginia and Vagina are almost identical.

I used the mudoku pads last night. i don't really feel any different. lol It did kind of feel odd on my foot though. It turned black of course, and after much contemplation I decided the smell was mesquite barbecue sauce. I am very glad that the pads got all the barbecue sauce out of my feet. I'm sure it's not good to have something like that in you. lmao

Smells like liquid Hickory!

Don't know if on one try will work, so I'll give it a couple of times before passing judgement. *If It does have hickory as an ingredient then the medicinal properties are used for arthritis according to aboriginals.

"THE PADS REALLY WORK AND ITS NOT IN MY HEAD" THE SMELL ISN'T THAT BAD. WHERE EVER YOU HAVE THE PAIN, PUT THE PAD THERE AND NOT ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FOOT, IF IT IS ON THE ARM OR KNEE, LEG, NECK, BACK, SHOULDER, HAND, WRIST OR WHEREEVER YOU HAVE PAIN. IT REALLY WORKS THATS A FACT, MY SISTER HAD REAL BAD PAIN IN HER KNEES AND I TOLD HER ABOUT THESE PADS AND I PUT THEM ON HER KNEES AND THE NEXT MORNING SHE WAS PAIN FREE AND IS STILL PAIN FREE AND IT HAS BEEN 2 WEEKS NOW, SHE CAN DO THINGS SHE COULDN'T DO BEFORE, I HAVE BEEN USING THEM TO DETOX MY BODY AND IT HELPS ME & MY NEPHEW HAD SHOULDER PAIN AND I PUT ONE ON HIM AND NO MORE SHOULDER PAIN. BUY IT READ THE BOX AND YOU WILL KNOW WHAT IT HELPS, IT HELP IMPROVE MY CIRCULATION AND MY STIFF JOINTS AND MY ARTHRITIS AND I AM HAPPY ABOUT THAT. THE SMELL, IF WE LIVE IN THIS BIG WORLD AND SMELL WHATS OUT THERE AND BREED IT EVERYDAY AND BATHE IN THE TOXINS THATS IN THE TAP WATER AND WE ALSO SHOWER IN IT AND BRUSH OUR TEETH WITH THAT SAME WATER, SO THINK ABOUT IT. THE PADS WORK
