I am an orthomolecular nutritionist specializing in hair tissue mineral analysis. One of the protocols I use for detoxification of body stores of heavy metals is far infrared saunas. Today there is being markented "detoxification" foot patches containing wood vinegar, tourmaline, germanium, and a few other ingredients. The manufacturers claim the foot patches produce far infrared in ones body, therefore eliminating the toxins through ones feet into the patch! Please tell me if this is junk science?
Re: can applying foot patches of herbs generate far infrared in one's body?
