I am in my mid fifties and have accumulated some amount of toxicity over the years. The Detox Foot Pads have performed admirably in helping me to remove these years of toxic accumulation. It is indeed a sobering moment in the mornings when removing the foot pads, as they have turned from a creme white color to a blackish, toxic slime. My best results are acheived when I drink lots of water mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar and Aloe Vera juice, and wash or soak my feet in hot water, wiping them dry just before applying the pads at night. †
I've got about 48 years of toxins, etc. running around in my body and I believe these foot pads are putting a real dent in getting some of that stuff out of me. I was skeptical at first and can't tell you how many different surfaces and ways I 'tested' this product. At first I thought the pad would turn no matter what it was placed on. NOT! The excretion actually decreases after a couple days use...can't fake that. The little spots on the bottom of my feet actually disappear and I have unusual energy level the day after. Not many products I take the time to comment on but this one can do a lot of folks good! †
I'm wondering whether the black gooey stuff that resulted from using these pads is actually a withdrawal of toxins from my body through the bottoms of my feet...or if it is the material in the pads that melted from my body heat. †

Thank you for your feedback! Detox Foot Pads are specially designed to aid your body in toxin removal by stimulating reflexology zones. Our organic detox foot pads have been formulated with bamboo extracts, herbs and gemstones after having been developed through years of medical research in Japan. The foot is where most of the nerves in the body end, making it the ideal location to clean out toxins, chemicals and toxic metals. These substances can be expelled through sweat, which results in the black substance you see on the Foot Pads after you remove them. As these toxins are expelled, you may begin to see less of these substances being excreted over time. Please know Detox Foot Pads will not melt due to body heat.
If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact our Support Team here. We hope this helps - take care and be well!
TLDR: These pads turn brown when exposed to ANY liquid (such as the sweat on your body or even purified water) - I have used other GHC products and found them to be adequate, but this one should be considered useless unless GHC can explain the results of this simple test.
I purchased these foot pads and used 8 of the 10 on my feet and was excited by the results. While I may have been able to convince myself that my foot felt slightly different after wearing this all night, I was mostly impressed by how brown and gross looking the pads were when I took them off. It seems the rest of the reviewers are also focusing on this point.
Another reviewer said he tested these 'every way he could think of' but apparently he didn't think to simply put water on them. Try it for yourself: put a drop of a purified water in the corner of one of your pads - it will turn just as brown as it does after being on your foot for a night. After seeing this, I proceeded to rip the pad open and dump the contents in the water, which caused the water to, unsupririsngly, turn brown. This is extremely unsettling considering the skin will absorb this concoction overnight.
Considering the only real evidence for the efficacy of this product is a bunch of reviews that say "yep, it definitely turned brown" the results of this simple experiment should be eyeopening for anyone planning to purchase this product. Their "are all detox foot pads a scam?" page only says "ours uses better ingredients than the others" but doesn't actually explain anything that would invalidate this result.
I have contacted GHC about this and look forward to their response. On the bright side, they do appear to offer a 100% refund, which I will be excited the receive. †

Thank you for your feedback on Dr. Group's Detox Foot Pads! I understand the confusion as I have also read many reviews that claim the same concerns. I know that testing the pads for toxic metals may not be definitive, as results will vary depending on what is pulled out that specific day. While the color of the pad may be similar when adding water, the ideal process is to indicate that the foot is causing the pad to become wet. This indicates that the route of elimination through the bottom of the foot is open. The color of the pad does not change when applying water or when sweating so the color does not indicate what is being pulled out, but does indicate that the route is open for the detox to work. I have worked with people that will apply the pads. The pads do not change color and the and they do not sweat. This would indicate that the process has not been successful. Testing your body specifically for toxic metals would be a better indication that this is working. You may consider researching "at home, hair follicle, toxic metal test". The results are dependent upon the strength of your immune system, the efficiency of your elimination systems, as well as your toxic load. And for best results, we pair this product with our zeolite formula. These items are grouped together in a kit that you can find through the following page link: https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/chemical-toxic-metal-cleanse-kit.html

I have had a desk job for 26 years & I don't feel like the circulation is that great in my feet. A night time treat for my body is to soak my feet alternating with cold water & hot water with Epson salts. The I use my chi machine for 10 minutes and then put the detox pads on my heels and go to bed. it is relaxing & helps me get to sleep easier. In the morning they are funky. I can tell the difference. My feet & legs feel lighter. †
Don't get impatient, ALL people are different and their toxicity levels vary. FIRST bag of pads, Were puddles on both feet.I figured since I have agent orange, I figured energy would come in time..I knew my toxins were high.This am pads were much clearer but hard..But I did feel energy surge through me...Give it time and removing toxins is a good thing.!!!!! †
I have used detox pads before, but none like Dr. Groups. I've been toxic for so long, and tried many products to cleanse my body. I have used the detox pads consecutively for 30 days and have noticed more energy and clarity of mind. It's a great way to get rid of heavy duty toxins with little effort. A little pricey for me, but worth it. Watch Gaiam TV for Dr. Groups informational videos. I'm also using Oxy Powder. (GREAT) †
I was skeptical but saw all the great reviews by others who have tried the foot pads and decided to try them myself. I also know that Dr. Group has helped Neil greatly and that was all I needed to know to trust him and the products from Global Healing.
I drink lots of water during the day and I feel so much better. I just ordered more detox foot pads for a second round of cleansing. I have no complaints at all. This is a safe product to use and I am so grateful. The staff has been very couteous and polite and I get the product quickly in the mail. †
These foot pads were very high quality, much better than ones I've seen in the past from other sources. The pads also work, really well! I was a little skeptical at first, but as I used these, they actually were less and less "dirty" looking as I continued use of them. There's no way to fake that, especially since the pads are not numbered in any way shape or form. Oh, and just to be sure they weren't "degrading" I tested one on a different part of my body (hand - another meridian zone) and sure enough, the pad was black and brown! These pads are the REAL DEAL, don't buy them anywhere else in my humble opinion. †
I have started to use the Foot Pads for the past few months and am very impacted by the results. I researched Detox Pads and found this product by Dr. Group's to be the best. I get a lot of toxins appearing in my use and I feel better. It has helped in my skin care, energy level and has an impacted me on my energy level in the morning. I get a lot of toxins removed and my pads are full of toxins when I removed them in the morning. I have found it most useful by securing my pads with surgical tape so I get the pads to
fit tighty on my feet and not allowing the toxin residue to escape on my sheets and bed clothing. My only request to Dr. Group's is that make the pad larger to make sure the pad is more closely secure to the feet and to not allow drainage to come out of the pads on my feet. †
