I have been seeing a lot of people share pictures of foot detoxes, so I thought I would see what all of the hype is about. Luckily a friend of mine owns a spa in Boonville and was gracious enough to let me come in and try out a foot detox.

So basically what it does, for those who don't know, is remove toxins from your body through your feet with an electromagnetic coil. It is said to draw toxins into a tub of water that changes color based on the organs being detoxed. There are many who think that it is a scam, while others claim that it has improved their health in terms of joint pain and even clearing up their sinuses.

I'm not here to say that it works or not because I am far from being a scientist. However, I can tell you that what I felt while I was using the foot detox bath was very odd. I could feel like a charlie horse tension in my left ankle up to my calf. This could be as a result of the bath pulling the toxins out of me. Then there was the nasty, chunky water that came from me soaking my feet. It was very gross.
