Your feet have natural energy zones that are connected to every organ system in our body, according to the Chinese system of reflexology. This means that through our feet we can detoxify our whole body, get rid of internal toxins, and improve our overall health.
One such procedure that will help accomplish this is a foot bath with apple cider vinegar. Made from fermented apples, apple cider vinegar is not only good for your overall health but it is also all-natural fix for a variety of skin conditions.
Apple cider vinegar foot baths are practiced for years, as a way to naturally lose weight, relieve digestive problems, get rid of toxins, and improve skin quality.
Toxins in the body can interfere with proper hormonal, brain, and immune system functions. Detoxing the body is a popular practice, and while it is not the most popular method, detoxing through the feet is probably one of the most effective.
Our feet are the area on our body where most germs and bacteria are accumulated, due to the lack of oxygenation that supports their accumulation. This, in turn, causes infections, foot odor, calluses, dry and rough feet.
Apple cider vinegar contains biologically active compounds which kill germs and bacteria. Therefore, it is one of the most effective natural remedies for many health problems. Some of these health problems include foot odor, fungal infections, softens the skin, improves skin quality, and much more. Additionally, it is very simple and easy to use.
How to prepare apple cider vinegar foot bath
All you have to do is to heat the water, and when lukewarm transfer it to a larger pot. Next, place the feet in it. Pour a glass of apple cider vinegar and a few drops of your favorite essential oil (for example lavender oil). Also, make sure that the apple cider vinegar you purchase has some of the “mother” floating around at the bottom of the bottle.
Let your feet soak for 30 minutes and you’re done. Do this procedure once a week, and you will reap its countless benefits.
To eliminate calluses or kill fungal infections, soak your feet in a mixture with equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water. for 45 minutes (preferably warm water), and then exfoliate your feet with a pumice stone. You will see how quickly the calluses are falling and your skin is becoming very soft.
These are also other types of foot baths you can use to detoxify your body and improve the health of your feet. One of them is ionic foot baths. This bath is based on electrolytes and uses an electrical charge to make a chemical reaction.
First, you need to open your skin pores by using warm water and salt which will work as an anti-inflammatory astringent. Ions will be absorbed through the feet and your body will get a detox. If the saltwater becomes dark, that means you are eliminating toxins from your body.
There are several forms of ionic baths including:
