I have a friend and fellow Lymie that owns a foot detox bath system. You know, I always have a certain level of skepticism when it comes to these things. However, I was surprisingly astonished by what I saw and learned.
If you're not aware, we all have compromised bodies by simply living in an industrialized world. And then, when you add Lyme and other co-infections into the mix, well, let's just say that my body is a veritable cornucopia of less-than-desirable elements. We all are inundated with harsh chemicals – from our foods and even the air we breathe; heavy metals – from vaccinations and other things such as mercury amalgam fillings and more; sludgy lymphatic systems; overly worn-out organ systems; and SO much more.
For me, I also have a ton of bacteria and parasite die-off that not only create more sludge by their deadness hanging around, but these miscreants also release endo-toxins (all of the neuro-toxins they had stored up before they died) into my body at the time of death. It makes me feel extremely sick and altogether just not good. So we Lymies detox, detox, detox the night away.
Our bodies naturally are working overtime trying to clear out all this "stuff" and most times, it simply can't do it all. Enter the foot detoxification system. My friend found this website that sells amazing personal and commercial systems, made in the USA, and is located here in Wisconsin. Check them out, they're terrific. I spoke with the owner, Ryan Pattee, and ordered my own foot detox kit, and am über excited for its arrival and maiden voyage to sludgeville.
Here are shots of the water during and after my initial soak in my friend's machine. Remember that when I started out, the water was CLEAR and had only sea salt mixed in. The rest mostly* came from me.
|In the tub. There are many colors that appear, which translate into different systems of your body that are detoxing.|
|Dark green: Gall Bladder system. I don't have a Gall Bladder anymore, but the system is still there, and is in serious distress.|
|The floaty, sludgy stuff on top is from my Lymphatic System. Loads of toxins there.|
|Black flecks? Heavy metals that came out of my pores. Yes. That is correct. There are several in this shot, with two larger ones at about the middle.|
|More metal flecks. I poured the water out through a paper towel-lined colander, to catch the colors and the heavy metals.|
|All that orange... That would be from my joints. Some yellow from the kidney/bladder system. I have Interstitial Cystitis, a bladder disorder. I also have Bartonella, which loves to hang out in the bladder.|
It can also pull out yeast, which comes out as curdy white floaters, and even red flecks which indicates blood clots breaking up and being pulled out. No kidding. This is amazing.
Let me explain just a tiny bit about how this works. Detoxifying your body can offer benefits such as more energy, rejuvenation, sleep wellness, and healthier skin, according to their website. The following is also taken directly from www.MyDetoxFootBath.com, as they are the experts, not me:
So that is the skinny on the foot detox. I give this method a super-duper-ultra-mega quadruple A+++++++. Out of 5 stars, this receives the coveted 6 stars. No joke. My doctor also highly recommends doing this regularly.
Who knew detoxing could be not only this effective, but also this gross? I mean, Halloween, here we come as the scum-monsters!
