Why Do KinoTox Pads Work?

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Bottom Line
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:

Pad Discoloration
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.”

Far-Infrared Energy
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.

Chitosan
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.

Summary
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.

KinoTox Pads – The Best Value

Friday, October 24th, 2008
Now that more foot pads are becoming available, we are getting questions regarding what makes the KinoTox pad the best value. Do you know that the KinoTox pad was the first Korean pad to be imported into the USA and it’s the only pad to have a contract with the South Korean army because of its quality? As with any good product there are copycats that follow. Copycat products are almost never as good as the original. It up to you to determine if you want to risk using a low quality copycat product, or if you want the results that only the original can produce with a 90 day money back guarantee from a company you can trust. There are several things which make KinoTox pads a quality leader.

Tourmaline
KinoTox pads contains more tourmaline than other pads. This is significant because pad advocates and originators insist that tourmaline produces the Far-Infrared Energy which penetrates deep into the tissues to stimulate the reflex points, circulation and detoxification. We are convinced that this is the #1 reason why KinoTox pads work so well for so many when lesser pads do not. Tourmaline is an expensive, semi precious gem that adds weight to the pad. Increasing tourmaline significantly increases the manufacturing costs. Reducing the amount of this ingredient would substantially reduce the cost. However, doing so would compromise one of the design principles of the pads. That simply is not an option for Healthy Habits.

Proprietary Blend of Wood Vinegars
KinoTox pads contain an important combination of Bamboo Vinegar, Oak Vinegar and Eucalyptus Tree Vine Vinegars. Eucalyptus is used internally and/or externally by herbalists to relieve symptoms of colds, flu, chest congestion, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, respiratory infections, rheumatism, aching, pains, stiffness and neuralgia. These are all signs of a stressed lymphatic system which may be in dire need of detoxification. This particular combination of wood vinegars and Tourmaline are what the original manufacturers included to stimulate the reflex point on the feet and absorb the toxins because they felt it was the best. Their ability of these vinegars to assists in detoxification is important to the function of the product.

Chitosan
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. Chiosan 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 reabsorbed 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.

Reflection of Far-Infrared Energy
KinoTox pads have an expensive foil backing which aids in reflecting the Far-Infrared Rays, herbal and mineral properties into the tissues to which it is attached. This is one of the reasons that the KinoTox pad produces results when other foot pads may fail to do so.

Quality Is Always Worth It
We could go on and on about all the ingredients in KinoTox pads. We have spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars developing and marketing this high quality pad. There are always reasons why look alike products sell for less. Use your common sense. If you pay less, you get less, it is just that simple. It would be easy for us to cut quality and produce a foot pad that could sell for less than other pads on the market, but it would be poor quality and that’s not what we’re about.

Healthy Habits has made a name for itself by supplying you with natural products that are of the highest quality. When dealing within an industry in which products produce different results for different people it is important to remember one thing. A quality product has the best chance of producing the desired result and a poor quality product has almost no chance of producing the desired result. Stick with a quality product and a company you can trust and you can’t lose.

Do you want the comfort of knowing that you are using a premier product? We think you do. This is why we go to the extra mile and extra expense of producing the highest quality foot pad available.

We invite you to see what KinoTox pad users have to say about their experiences with the product. See their responses in the LETTERS Forum.

We thank you for your interest and continued support. Help Share The Health!
