I came across an interesting study done by a guy named Dr. Richard Lloyd, Ph.D. He’s done some studies on how Mold and Lyme toxins build up in your body, and he’s done some research on more alternative treatment methods.
Nearly a quarter of the Earth’s population cannot produce the antibodies necessary to fight mold toxins once they enter your system. So those who are continually exposed to mold toxins gradually get a build-up of increasing amounts of these toxins in their bodies. If you can smell mold in your home, you may be at risk.
Symptoms of these diseases include inflammation, loss of sex drive, uncontrollable weight gain, brain confusion, and flu-like symptoms. Other symptoms are cold hands and feet, gluten intolerance, and chronic pain.
Conventional medication can cause bloating, digestive upset, and constipation in most patients. There are supplements that can be taken, such as peach extract. Ultimately, you want to avoid mold.
Dr. Lloyd maintains that the use of Japanese foot detox patches has helped eliminate mold toxins very quickly and without side effects. Ionic foot baths have also been shown to be effective and quick. He recommends using two baths, one for each foot.
He tells of one of his patients who was so weakened by inflammation, caused by mold, that the patient could not move. He wore detox foot patches, 10 in total, for five sessions. Soon after, he was mowing the church lawn. The patches ran out and, as he was still living under the same circumstances, the pain and inflammation returned.
Then he decided to use the ion footbath. She also decided to use detoxifying oil and a diffuser to remove mold from her home. Both times he was able to get good results.
This is just one case study that I have come across while researching the feasibility and honesty of foot detox products and procedures. I must admit that I am in two minds about the whole thing. One side, the logical side, tells me this is a scam. My more creative side, or maybe my side of illusions, tells me that there could be possibilities here. I felt better after trying the patches, but like I said, it was the illusion, the placebo effect.
