Chinese Foot Reflexology and Detoxification

We all know the rich and famous spend thousands of dollars on 3-day extravagant detox spas and the likes, (must be nice, grins). However, the Chinese and Japanese have a secret for achieving similar detoxification results very economically! This is through a method called foot reflexology.

Reflexology is an ancient natural therapy which utilizes energy zones on the hands and feet to provide relief for a variety of illnesses as well as to energize the body system. It has been in practice in China for thousands of years, Today, it remains a popular and common therapy in China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Thailand and is also increasingly popular in other parts of the world including Europe and USA. In essence, the Chinese believe every meridian point in our foot reflexes to a part of our body system and can be used for targeting healing and detoxification of that part of the body, specifically.

So, How does foot detoxification work?

It is widely known that the waste products (toxins) accumulated from the food we eat, stress and the polluted air/water we take in contribute to the majority of health problems in our body. When the waste products in our body reach an excessive level, they can cause fatigue, restlessness or other health problems.

There are various methods to clear the build up of these waste products (toxins) in our body; including fasting, dieting, sweat out in a sauna, regular physical exercise or even colon-cleansing. Some of these methods are costly, some are difficult to maintain and some, done excessively, are plain dangerous!

Detoxification patches are totally safe and easy to use.

These tree extract plaster patches help to cleanse your body's waste products in an easy, trouble-free and painless way. Just wrap one sheet of plaster on the sole of your foot before going to bed, and allow it to work while you are asleep. The color of the sheet will change according to the condition of your health. Those with health problems will notice the sheets are initially darker the following morning. With regular use, the sheets will progressively get lighter and lighter, indicating a steady improvement in your health. The patch can also be applied to specific health problem areas on localized parts of the body, such as the wrist, knee, shoulder, ankle, and groin.

This patch has been found to vastly improve circulation and promote detoxification of the human body leading to general better health and well-being.

Detoxification is not a new health concept. In fact, it has been around for a long, long time. Other popular detoxification methods in modern time include the sauna, dieting, colon cleansing, detoxification pills and solutions, etc.

However, none of these detoxification methods are as easy, quick, cost effective, safe and effective as detoxification foot patches. Simply apply a detox patch to each foot before sleeping every night. Thats it! Detox while you sleep. :)

The Detox Foot Patch I recommend is an all-natural patch that you can wear overnight to revitalize your system. It uses all-natural ingredients at the optimum blending ratios. Japanese scientists took over 24 years to develop this detoxification technology.
So, what are you waiting for? Start regaining your health and vitality today by using The Detox Foot Patch to free your body from toxins naturally, while promoting a strong immune system and healthy lymphatic functions. (There are before and after pictures of the patches after they have been used on the above links (kind of brownish gross looking). You can also see the ingredients used and other beneficial heath remedies this patch is good for on the links I included above for you.)

The BEST organic care for your face..I LOVE IT!!!

Let me start with sharing that I am a research HOUND!!!
That being said, let me preface the below product review with this: There are other very high quality natural and organic products that I have selectively chosen to allow to be advertised on The Health and Wealth Vault. These products are also of an organic, pure, natural approach to skin care science. They too, have all the earmarks of exceptional pure skin care lines, I just haven't had the pleasure of trying those lines or products...yet.:) So, in fairness to you, and to those equally wonderful products I haven't yet been able to try, I just wanted to clarify this.
That being said...I want to tell you about my 'recommendation' for the week! A product I have tried. I'm in love with it, and so is my mother now. (Hi Mom :). So, if your looking for that ULTIMATE skin care line, you can read my review in the next post below.

BIG Fat let down Skin Care Products ##!!*?!

...I'm sure you've had the above thought a time or two! Well, I've found a skin care line that is absolutely incredible! I have tried so many different skin care products, like I know most of you have. I have to say I've pretty much not really been ecstatic with any of them, that is why I keep trying the so called latest and greatest anti-aging skin care 'miracle'. I usually end up feeling depression and anxiety over being let down again. To be honest, I even feel kind of taken advantage of because my face still doesn't look like the model on the product infomercial! O.K., maybe I shouldn't expect THAT, (that would be a miracle, laughs) but I have hoped and looked for a long time, to find a pure, organic skin care line that could help minimize my pores and bring out that inner youthful beauty of my skin once again.
The last skin care I tried was Brook Shield's new facial skin care products made with some rare berry from some far off country. I kept seeing the infomercial on t.v. about how Brook and her exclusive French cosmetologist (the kind few can afford to see), developed this skin care line together. Anyway, it made my face breakout like it never has and I didn't get ANY positive results. The skin care masks she sells are o.k., but really just an average clay mask. I also had to go through the headache of canceling an 'auto shipment' they had set me up on, which I did not want. (Still have the original stuff sitting on my bathroom counter.. more wasted money down the 'vanity toilet'... What's a girl (or guy) to do!!:)

Yep, it was another big fat let down, one of the worst so far...I was pretty disappointed until...
I was walking through an exclusive department store and saw the words 'organic skin care' on this one line of skin care that really caught my eye. I got some free skin and body care samples, brought them home and tried them. I have to say..."I think I've died and gone to skin care heaven." THESE PRODUCTS ARE SO GOOD, it is awesome!!

Here is the results I have had: things like getting rid of my red broken capillaries, bringing back youthful glowing skin, closing my PORES!!!!, and the profound balancing of my overall skin tone is absolutely, bar none, incredible!!! My skin is loving me and I am loving my skin. I'm happy, I just 'feel better' about myself, inside and out.

So, this is my recommendation of the week!! Bad news is the skin care line is not so cheap in the department store. Good news is, that I found these products much cheaper on the internet. I am including two links in this post to the cheapest places on the net I've found these products so far. (Look to the right on my blog and you'll see a photo of the product, 'Origins'. So, just click on this link Origins Face and body skin care here. There you will find LOTS of this product line to choose from, at WAY better prices than the department stores!!) Enjoy!

Please drop a post and let me know your experience with this product line (and others)! I feel pretty confident you'll see it in the mirror, significant visible results, in just a few days. It only gets better from there!!! My teenage son has acne and we put him on the acne organic skin care and it has really, REALLY cleared up. My skin looks healthy now! (My mom says, "I will NEVER switch, I'll NEVER be without it, this is the ONE") Now, if it were only so easy to find 'THE ONE'. Anyone have a tip for me there? :)

By the way, this face and body skin care line has pure, natural, organics for every skin type (MEN too) as well as natural mineral makeup. (For an extra treat, I recommend the 'gloomaway grapefruit body cleanser/polish', what a way to wake up. I love the smell of this product! It is all natural, and has a refreshing citrus based scent that you just can't get enough of. It's awesome).

Here is the second link I told you I would include where you can find more Origins products such as the 'gloomaway grapefruit cleanser' and many other products from this line at great pricing: Find Origins on Amazon here.
