Has anyone used these?
The idea is that these pads draw out heavy metals, metebolic waste, and other impurities while you sleep. I guess I am on the "sucker" list, but holistic always gets my attention.
We just bought a trial set to see if it will clean up some of the gook that is kept in our bodies…I used my first one last night and it came out pretty yucky. It does something, it has a tingly feeling (like peroxide before it starts to hurt)
Anyone out there tried them for a prolonged time or on maintinance?

Okay, the test is done. (drum roll please....) HOAX! Yep, they pretty much don't change in color. They continue to remain the same color and amount of detox crudd appears during the entire process. My husband said he feels better, but I didn't notice any difference. If the placebo effect is working for him, then that is fine with me. As for me, they are debunked. It was fun to try them though.

Thank you for the link. It does explain a lot of things and yes it does sound more like a scam than a legit product. My question then is, my husband tried it on a different part of his body (the directions say it does not have to be on the feet) and he put it on his abdomen. His came out clean. You would think it would sweat the same way if it is blocked like your feet? We will work our way thru our box and then decide. Maybe it is a sugar pill...at least it is a non caloric one! LOL

Your abdomen doesn't secrete nearly as much sweat as your feet do.

Yeah, we figured that. My husband is a parapaligic and we didn't think that his circulation would be enough to get to his feet (they are always cold) But last night he used one on his right foot and it was as yucky as my first one. I used one last night on my other foot (per directions) and it was MUCH less yucky. So tonight we will see. If it is just triggered by sweat as the people say who agree it is a scam, then why would my right foot be less yucky than my left foot (the first one I did was my left foot)?? We haven't noticed any big difference in how we feel, but we have 5 more days to try them and see what happens. There are a lot of things that we do that are not FDA approved or tested...besides, the FDA is not always all it's cracked up to be anyway. As long as it isn't going to kill me or make my feet fall off, I will work thru our box.

Try dipping one in distilled water (which by definition is pure and free of toxins). If the comments on the site that I posted are correct then it will still be brown.

Yeah, I understand that. But what that doesn't address is that my feet both sweat, and one was really grey (not brown) and the second one was less than half the amount of grey. It was still all hardened(which seems to be the reaction to the moisture)but only a samll part of it was discolored. I am still thinking it is pretty mcuh a gimmick, but the distilled water answer doesn't (pardon my pun) float.

In the same way that you cannot assume your abdomen sweats as much as your feet do (because it doesn't), you also cannot assume that your feet both sweat exactly the same amount (because they probably don't either).

If you put this pad in pure and clean distilled water and it still turns brown then it completely invalidates the entire product.

Here's another link. These pads are the same thing as the Kinoki pads:

I just read something, not sure where now but I'll try to find it. It said that these pads were a hoax and just a way to get your money… Not sure either way but they look cool if they work.
I'll see if I can find the article.

Been wanting to try them.
Where did you order them from and do they hurt??
it makes sense to cleanse the feet after all the nerve endings there control alot If you are familure with reflexology you ll understand more.

we do get a build up of gunk in our systems and it causes a lot of problems for us health wise, I did a cleansing program when I live in Washington state, for the first 2 weeks I really felt cruddy, but then the fog passed from my brain and I started to feel a lot better, I felt lighter inside, I could think and had so much more energy.

We are both going to do the cleanse program for paricites this fall.
once my sugars good.
We all pick them up, some are from walking barefooted, some from our pets, water, food.
I know black walnuts are very good to help with detoxing your system ,green tea helps too.

plus when we take a lot of medications it clings to our linings in the stomic and colon like wall paper,

so remember when starting a cleansing to start with colon first so you do not over load your system with old meds on top of toxins.

Gabby, I've not tried them as yet, but have been considering them. Keep us informed as to how you make out with them. If they do work as well as the TV commericials say, then they should be well worth the cost.

Nope, they don't hurt at all. It is kind of a tingly feeling, but no pain. I am going to do another one tonight. You alternate feet every other one until the pads come with no gunk in them. I just picked them up from Walgreens, but you can get a better deal on line. We just wanted to try them once to see if we notice any difference in how we feel. I am really concerned about the aspertame in my body too, and getting off that. So who knows, as JP says, it may just be a big hoax. People are always looking for ways to take our money.
