Can We Really Detoxify Through Our Feet?


In this day and age, it is a fact of life that we are surrounded by various types of toxins. No matter what we try to do it is almost impossible to escape them.

This means that even if one were to try and live a life that is completely free of toxins, it is virtually impossible. Of course, that is not to say that we should purposefully live unhealthy lives. If possible living a toxin-free life as much as possible is always advisable. Indeed, it is estimated that the average person carries at least 2 pounds of toxins and various other unwanted microorganisms at any given time.
