Woman lying in bed wearing detox foot pads


Detox foot pads are promoted for removing toxins from the body. The adhesive pads are applied to the bottom of the foot before bedtime to draw toxins such as heavy metals and other chemicals out of the body through the skin while the wearer sleeps. In the morning, when the pad is removed, the appearance of dark green or gray coloration purportedly indicates that toxins were removed from the body during sleep.
