Foot detoxes are intended to remove toxins and metals from the body by drawing them out through the feet. Proponents believe that a foot detox makes the body’s pH level more alkaline. It’s also thought to deactivate a variety of harmful organisms.

Benefits of Doing a Foot Detox

  • May remove toxins
  • Reduces swelling
  • Calms the body
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Improves mood
  • Burns calories
  • Encourages normal blood sugar
  • Boosts cardiovascular health

Since the feet are rich with nerve endings and sweat glands, it seems like the ideal place in the body to detox and de-stress. There’s no denying that soaking your body or just your feet in hot or warm water is calming. But hot detox foot baths may also help reduce swelling, boost your immune system, and improve your overall health and mood. A recent study even found that, like exercise, hot baths can help burn calories, boost cardiovascular health, and encourage normal blood sugar levels.[4] People who advocate for detoxing through the feet say that it can ease mental distress while improving sleep and overall well-being.[56]
