The bottom liine is that no one really knows why KinoTox pads do what they do, but we DO know that they do work. All you have to do is go to the Healthy Habits Forum and read the many letters from users of KinoTox pads to know that they do work and what they do differs according to each individual’s needs.
We have some ideas why KinoTox pads appear to stimulate the healing process. This blog will cover some of them:
First, we have always maintained that the color of the pad should not be used as a measurement of whether or not the pad is effective. It is simply a way to tell if the pad has become soiled. If the pad is soiled, it should not be reused. If it is not soiled, it can be used as often as desired. I know that some vendors tie the color of the pad to some evidence of “detox”, however I do not think this has been sufficiently demonstrated or proven.
New Substances In Used Pads
As far as testing before and after pads for evidence of new substances, we have sent our pads to an energetic laboratory practitioner, Dr. Brooks, in NC, who has indicated a new presence of the following in the used KinoTox pad: Barium, copper, formaldehyde, mercury, mold, nickel, parasites and tin. We make no claims concerning the ability of the pad to “detox”, however, this testing does appear to indicate that the pads do absorb heavy metals and other undesireable substances.
Improved Kidney Function
In acupuncture, the sole of the foot has a relationship to the kidney meridian. It is not unusual to find that the users of KinoTox pads have an improvement in the elimination of organic acids. The kidneys bind toxins to organic acids. The more organic acids that area eliminated, the more effective the kidneys will be, the better the person will feel. It is what we call “Healthy Habits Common Sense.”
We believe that the high amount of Far-Infrared Energy emitted by the KinoTox pads is the key to them providing the benefits that users are claiming. Infrared rays make up about 80% of the spectrum of energy that we receive from the sun, and are usually divided in to three zones: near, middle, and far. Studies have shown that mid-to-far-infrared rays with wavelengths ranging from 5 to 14 microns play an important role for the development of living things. NASA calls them “bioenergetic rays” which has attracted the attention of researchers world-wide for their potential impact on health and well-being.
The therapeutic benefits of far infrared energy are well supported by world-wide research:
� Improvement in micro-vascular circulation of blood and lymph. Enhancement of tissue fluid exchange, enzyme activity and oxygenation of cells.
� Consequential support and facilitation of cardiovascular and lymphatic systems.
� Relaxation of muscles, extension of soft tissues, and subsequent improvement in flexibility: naturally alleviates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
� Relief of discomfort and pain.
� Assistance in resolution of chronic inflammation and edema.
� Facilitation of deep cleansing of the skin and underlying tissues with efficient removal of toxins and waste products.
� Promotes collagen and elastin production within basal cell layer.
� Improves fibroblast functions for connective tissue repair.
� Increase in cellular metabolism and support for weight-loss and detoxification management.
� Stimulation and support of immune system functions.
� Facilitation of vital homeostatic mechanisms and auto-regulation of the Autonomic Nervous System.
� Reduction of physical and psychological stress and fatigue.
� Aids penetration & delivery of product active ingredients.
� Stimulates energetic Chi points that trigger vital homeostatic mechanisms, resulting in renewed radiance and a profound sense of inner balance.
KinoTox pads contain Chitosan, a polysaccharide found in the shells of crustaceans. Due to the ionic charge of Chitosan, it is excellent for absorption of toxic acids. Chitosan is negatively charged, which attracts the positively charged red blood cells. Chitosan also has a history of being used internally for kidney function and cholesterol problems. The characteristics of the Chitosan assist the KinoTox pad in retaining the absorbed toxins instead of allowing them to be re- absorbed by the foot during overnight application such as may be the case with other pads. Chitosan is also a great antibacterial substance. The antibacterial properties of Chitosan have been investigated using an in vitro methodology in which the antibacterial activities of Chitosan were measured against a wide range of bacteria. Results demonstrated that Chitosan increased the permeability of the inner and outer membranes and ultimately disrupted the bacterial cell membranes, releasing their contents.
These are just a few of the reasons why KinoTox pads produce results where other pads simply cannot and do not. We are the pioneers of the foot pad concept and know what we are doing. If you appreciate quality, you will appreciate the efficacy of KinoTox pads. Yes, they may cost a bit more, but the results are worth it. We challenge you to use a competitor brand for a week, then switch to KinoTox and you will quickly see what we mean. Healthy Habits = Quality - Integrity - Longevity.
