Tips for Choosing a Foot Bath System

Foot baths are becoming increasingly popular among people who want to lead healthier and cleaner lifestyles. While the benefits of foot baths can vary depending on the model and brand you use, most are designed to remove toxins, soften skin and restore moisture. If you are primarily interested in buying a foot bath because you have heard that it can be used as a safe detox tool, you should look specifically for an ionic detox foot bath.

Using gentle electrical currents and salt water, ionic detox foot baths are designed to remove chemicals that can accumulate in the body over time from processed foods, cosmetics and the environment. They are also widely used as alternative medical treatments for many different problems, including skin blemishes, menopausal symptoms, stress, insomnia, sexual disorders and signs of aging. Although results can vary from one person to another, most foot baths need to be used several times over a period of three to five weeks to complete the detoxification process. After the initial cleanse, you can maintain your results by using your foot bath system once a month.

HEALTHandMED, a reputable online store dedicated to health and wellness, carries some of the most popular ionic detox foot baths available in today’s market. If you are on a budget, start with a single machine. For intensive treatment, consider investing in a complete detox package. Complex ionic detox systems are more expensive, but they are packed with a variety of accessories that can improve and speed up your treatment.

It is really up to you to decide what foot bath best suits your needs. For someone who already leads a healthy lifestyle, a basic foot bath system is usually enough. If you have serious health concerns, then you might want to get a more powerful product. Keep in mind that foot bath systems are not meant to be used as substitutes for traditional medical treatments. If you have a serious health condition or are suffering from a new set of unexplained symptoms, ask your doctor if you need to take medication in conjunction with your natural treatments.

How can something so delicious be good for you?

We just received a new stock of JoJo’s Chocolate Bark.   I had some on my desk, and I was getting super hungry by 11am.  So, I tried one.  Then I just had to try another, and another…. I guess the rest of my sandwich that I brought for lunch will have to wait until tomorrow.

It was so yummy.  I got to thinking — how can something that tastes so divine actually be good for you?  Dark chocolate is extremely good for you.  In fact, I recently read a book that reported on decades long longevity studies done all over the world.  The #1 conclusion from the the research is that cultures that live longer and healthier lives consume more antioxidants in their diet.  And dark chocolate has more antioxidants than almost anything else.  The polyphenol antioxidant content per 40-gram (1.4-ounce) serving of dark chocolate (containing 60%-63% cacao) is 1,000 mg/serving.
