Detox Saturday

On Saturday I went to get a foot detox. 
I had heard about it and decided to give it a try. 
It's referred to as "foot detox" as it is supposed to be done through 
your feet but should work on all of your body.
It is really called the Ionic Detoxification Foot Bath and 
promises to help your body get rid of radiation, pollution, chemicals,
preservatives and so on that prevent your body from healing.
According to them the toxins flee your body through the pores in 
your feet thus turning the water dark.
It takes 30 minutes.
While sitting there I felt a little shaky and unstable.
I sat there watching the water turn darker by the minute
and it smelled like acid.
Below are pictures of my feet as time went by,
when I first put my feet in the water was clear.
Later on I read that the color of the water meant what
part of your body was being cleansed and then I read
that it's just the oxidation process of the black device 
(in between my feet)
 that supposedly carries the ions.

I also read afterwards that this is a total scam.
What do you think ? Have you tried this ?

Anyways, here's what I wore, something I 
had not worn in over a year:

After I did my foot detox, I went shopping for pots and plants.

How was your Saturday ?

i think i am horrified by any kind of water with that color! bleh!

i have noticed that the mani/pedi shops are always ALWAYS trying to find new gimmicks for the ladies to try. i succumb to some of them, but not all.

It sounds like a scam. I think they put something in the water that changed over time to make it that colour.

Also, our bodies do a very good job of detoxifying us! We don't actually need to detox artificially. If you want to feel a real detox, eat only whole foods (no processed foods) and drink only water for a week. You will be amazed at how good you feel, and how good your skin looks.
