Why are the patches worn on the feet?
The foot pads are worn on the feet for a couple of reasons - the feet are considered in Oriental medicine to be "the second heart" - that is, they help pump return circulation of blood and lymph back up into the torso. With most of our time sedentary these days, this natural pumping action is inhibited and circulation tends to bog down around the feet, ankles and lower legs.
What is actually coming out into the used foot detox patches?
This will vary from person to person, but lab analysis of used foot detox patches show a larger variety of chemicals coming out into the patches. Testing shows traces of heavy metals, petrochemicals, synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and much more.

Yes, I believe it did. Heck, maybe I'll go have it done again, I haven't been sick in a very long time...maybe a foot detox once a year is the secret? Plus, I just enjoy a good foot soak
