The coronavirus pandemic has confined us to our homes. Lack of exercise and workload can cause a lot of stress and anxiety. This increased stress and limited movement lead to an increase in the amount of toxins in the body. Here’s how you can get rid of these toxins without spending a dime.
Sitting for hours
Most of us have 9-5 jobs and spend most of our time glued to our chairs in front of our laptops. People who sit for long hours suffer from common problems such as calf pain, restlessness, sleepiness, and leg pain. Sometimes severe leg pain can disrupt your sleep and contribute to increased stress. Here are two easy ways to get rid of all these problems and detoxify your body.
Method 1: Apple Cider Vinegar Foot Detox
The list of benefits of apple cider vinegar is long. For an apple cider vinegar foot detox, you will need 1 tablespoon of ACV, 2 tablespoons of rock salt, 3-4 drops of essential oils, and a moisturizer/mustard oil.
How to detox
Pour hot water into a bucket. The water should cover the area below the knees and should be moderately warm, not very hot.
Mix all the ingredients mentioned above in water in addition to the moisturizer. Keep your feet in the water for 15 minutes and clean your feet with a towel. Now moisturize your feet with any cream or mustard seed oil.
If you have time, lie down and relax for 30 minutes. After immersing the feet in water, the nerves are softened, so it is better not to put pressure on them while walking.
How it works
Warm water is really effective in reducing leg pain. Hot water increases blood circulation and increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. All this helps to relax our muscles and sleep well. Rock salt in the water helps to relieve the pain. Therefore, when we use bath salts, our body feels very light and relaxed.
Method 2: Detoxify the feet
Another easy way to detox your feet is to use mustard oil, Himalayan salt, lemon and warm water.
How to do it:
Massage your feet with oil, Himalayan salt and lemon. Now take a bucket of warm water, squeeze the juice of two lemons, add some pink salt and soak your feet for 20 minutes.
It not only relaxes your feet but also detoxifies the body.
How does it work?
Pink salt contains iron, iodine, sodium chloride and various other minerals. When salt is mixed with water, the minerals in the salt dissolve in the water. When we dip our feet in this water, the minerals released from the small pores on the skin are absorbed into the body.
