    Has anyone used the detox foot pads?

    I keep seeing the advertisement for the detox foot pads on t.v., and wondered if they work, and if they do are they good for lyme? I know they are supposed to be good for heavy metals and such.

    Re: Has anyone used the detox foot pads?

    I hate to sound negative, but I paid a TON of money last year at the chiropractor to have my feet put in one of those detox foot baths that are supposed to draw out all the heavy metals, etc. I went once a week for six months and lost a lot of money. But the end of it I felt worse. My doctor told me those detox foot products are a myth and it's medically impossible for them to do what they say they do. But who knows? All I know is I'm hundreds of dollars poorer and still as sick as ever. I'm one of those people who will try anything if there's even a 1% chance it'll help.

    I'm on the fence about the foot pads.

    My LLMD recommended them to me and I bought some from her (willing to do ANYTHING to feel better). She gets high quality ones from Asia and sells them at cost.

    I tried them for a few weeks (and boy oh boy were they expensive).

    They did turn gross brown but when I looked at the ingredients, they included starch and vinegar, which both turn brown when moist.

    I did not notice the color lighten as I used them which means I didn't use them long enough.

    I was so darned sick at the time, I could not manage using them. I had a hard enough time managing all my pills and supplements and stuff, so I stopped.

    Just yesterday I stopped by my LLMD's office to make an appointment and I bought a pack. I've only used it for one night, but I'll keep folks posted.

    I can't say if they work; everyone's different. The pads may work for some, but not for others.

    If you decide to try them, buy them from your LLMD or ask someone at a health food store to recommend a high quality brand. The one on TV may not be high quality.

    Good luck!

    Peace and health to you,
    Mickie

    Hi-

    I never tried the foot pads but I did the detox foot bath tiredpoet talked of (still doing it) and I LOVE it! I do it every 3 days and if I miss a week, I know it. I have a home unit so it does not cost so much.
    Good luck!
