Has anyone ever used these ? The patchs that you stick to the bottom of your foot and they supposedly remove toxins from the body. If so what did you think of them?

 

TIA

I haven't used them, but would be so interested in hearing from someone real who has, also!

I have used the patches, but only once (by once I mean for 10 days for a one time detox).  A whole lotta gunk was on those patches, but I cannot say that I truly felt more energized, etc.  They do have a very distinctive (and not too pleasant) odor, so be prepared.  I would (should?) give it a second go.

I saw them in a catalog a week or so ago. First time I'd seen them. They picture they showed of the patch AFTER removing it looked disgusting. I wondered if they really worked considering the patch in the picture practically turned black after use. It seemed a exaggerated to me. If they really did work, I'd love to try them. I just didn't want to shell out the money for something I knew nothing about.

I think this product looks very interesting, but I keep wondering if the toxins are the sweat from the person's foot. (?)

I have seen the commercial many times and I am somewhat skeptical. You see, I used to be a nursing student, and have taken a fair amount of nursing and science classes. On the commercial, there is a long list of the chemicals that these pads are supposed to remove from the body, if I'm understanding it correctly. At least one of the chemicals that they claim to be able to remove, is IMPOSSIBLE. That would be Mercury, and once it's inside the body, it's staying there, and not coming out, for anything.  (I could be wrong, but to me, it just seems like snake oil).
