We’ve got the answers for hundreds of questions.
Reports of more energy, better sleep, clearer and more positive thinking, and relief from all kinds of symptoms, including chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, are common. After the initial nightly applications of several weeks, they may be worn once or twice a week, or a few times a month, as a maintenance program, to continue to help the body with exposure to daily pollutants, as well as toxicities that accumulate from stress.
A few people don’t seem to get a lot of “stuff” coming out of the feet at night — maybe due to a sluggish lymphatic system, and poor circulation. These people may do better to wear the pads during the day, to get a fuller benefit from the pumping of circulation through the feet, or to put the pads on an hour or two before bedtime, while they are still moving around.
The feet are the best place to wear the pads. However, benefits may be obtained from wearing the patches on several places throughout the body. The pads can also be worn directly over a painful and swollen area. They tend to work best when applied over a blood-rich spot, like the extremities, including the hands, feet, backs of knees, temple, neck and spine.
Overall lymphatic detoxing through the feet may easily take 30 days or more for the average person, longer if you are chronically ill. Most people use the pads on the arches of the feet to start with. The pads start becoming lighter in color as less “gooey” lymph is extracted. At that point, other areas of the feet can be addressed – the balls of the feet, the toes, the heel, even the ankle. Some will see results in a day or two, while others may take several weeks to sense something positive is happening.
For hundreds of years, eastern medicine understood toxins travelled downwards in the body, accumulating in the tips of our toes and ankles. They also understood that toxin accumulation leads to many degenerative diseases. For example, painful rheumatism and arthritis were caused by acidic toxic fluids accumulating around the joints.
When toxins are absorbed into the system, most become embedded in our tissues. As the Lepa Life pads are placed on our skin, the natural herbs interact, and begin their work by emitting far infrared energy. The infrared rays not only enhances the cells functions directly, but also stimulate the Kidney 1 Meridians on the soles of the feet, creating a second front for detoxification. The Kidney 1 Meridian is used extensively by Acupuncturists and Acupressurists to also promote healing and relieve tension. In essence, the Lepa Life pads gently stimulate this point for an 8 to 10 hour period...
In addition, the wood vinegar extract in the foot patches allows for a phenomenon known in Asia as the "minus ion effect". By creating an osmotic shift in the herb/skin interface it permits the transfer of toxins. This "minus ion effect" induced by the pads, accelerates the natural excretion process (through the pores), and allows the body to purge toxins at a faster rate.
1. The visual evidence after using Lepa Life detox foot pad is compelling. The progress is apparent when used over a few consecutive days.
2. Multiple samples of pads were sent to SRC Analytical Lab, a highly accredited Environmental Laboratory. The results demonstrated absorption into the patch of Nickel, Arsenic and Mercury amongst others.
3. Multiple pads for various individuals were analyzed by using a syncrometer. The syncrometer, an electronic device used to detect individual substances by using a circuit and matching frequencies. The following substances have been identified in the used pads through this method: benzene, isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, aluminum, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, thallium, arsenic, asbestos, DAB dye, fast green dye, sudan black dye and PCB (plastic byproduct).
