What The Detox Patch Does

The simple explanation is that detox patches are herbal 'pouches' held to the arch of the foot overnight. By morning, they have turned dark, sometimes with streaks of color and moisture. Although the way that they function has not undergone intensive studies in the US, a quick search online shows thousands of positive reviews, which alone is a good indication that it is not just a 'placebo' effect. Several companies provide research, and indicate that the herbs in the foot patch trigger reflexology points in the feet.
Universally, the natural foot patch uses a wood vinegar extract, which along with tourmaline, is the main active ingredient. Our BodyPure Foot Patch is the industry leader, both in quality and quantity of the active ingredients, and the data below shows a detailed comparison to the other manufacturers. The different companies feature different trees (used to make the wood vinegar), though most of the data supports bamboo as being superior. The cause of the foot patch changing colors is both discharge of toxins and lymphatic fluid, AS WELL AS the interaction of the herbs with heat and moisture of the foot (the heat is caused by the increased circulation caused by the tourmaline in the foot patch). Bodypure also offers it's customers access to lab tests for the used patch, and we, along with a few other manufacturers also offer money back guarantees.. so those with a bit of skepticism might want to stick to one of those.

About the BodyPure Detox Foot Patch

Holistic Dentist and Naturopathic Doctor, Daniel Vinograd, developed the BodyPure2x Detox Patch when he discovered the toxicity of the heavy metals he was working with, and became committed to finding a natural detox method for himself and his patients.

The active ingredients in the BodyPure2x Foot Patch have been used by the Japanese for centuries to combat fatigue, improve circulation, increase metabolism, enhance quality of sleep and help release toxins from the body.

How Do The Patches Work?

Your liver and kidneys are central to the operation of the foot patch, and are the main filtering organs in your body. Natural meridians in your body connect the soles of the feet with the liver, kidneys and all other major organs. Traditional forms of medicine have used foot baths for treating many conditions for thousands of years. Our research has shown that the soles of the feet are the perfect place for applying our BodyPure2x Detox Foot Patch. used detox patch analysis
