Although it is said the body produces its own supply of antioxidants they are for the most part taken up with fighting the effects of pressures and strains of everyday life.

Foot Patches: Detoxing The Body Whilst You Sleep.


Class 1 Medical Device included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG No. 148412)

Our body’s main detoxification organs and systems are liver, colon, kidneys, gallbladder, lungs, skin, lymph, and blood. They help rid your body of wastes and toxins.

Foot patches are a simple non-invasive and natural way to detox the body.  They simply warm up and stimulate the soles of your feet whilst you sleep.  Over the past 50 years hundreds of different chemicals have been introduced into our environment, from the food and water we consume to the air we breathe.

A build-up of toxins in the body can lead to an imbalance and health problems.  Foot patches maintain a powerful reputation in traditional folk medicine, with a well documented use in China that dates back over 500 years.  Easy to use, foot patches are based on the principles of Eastern medicine, which teaches that toxins move away from the heart and towards the extremities of the body - including the feet, where toxins accumulate.

In traditional Chinese medicine the feet are regarded as your "second heart" and a mirror of internal health.  During the day, when you are standing up and moving about, gravity pulls toxins down towards the feet.  Foot patches are designed around this principle.  You might be surprised to find that a clean white patch can become soggy, wet and black after 8-12 hours of use.
What Are Foot Patches?
Foot patches look like a tea bag which has a mixture of herbs and minerals.  When they are pressed against the body they warm up and absorb any toxins that the body releases.
Is This Right For Me?
Providing it is done sensibly, embarking on any cleansing program is a positive step in the right direction to adopt a healthier way of living. Success often requires both short and long term strategies - unfortunately there is no quick fix. Consult with your Health Care Professional if unsure; never self diagnose especially when treating potential serious illnesses or diseases.

Ear Candles: Q & A.

How Do Ear Candles Work?
The ear canal is gently filled with warm air resulting in a feeling of well-being and of general relaxation. Warm rising air creates a vacuum (chimney effect) at the base of the candle.
Who Are Ear Candles Recommended For?
Ear Candles are especially recommended after showers, swimming, altitude stays, air-flights, under-water diving, to clear the ear. Ear candling is recommended for adults, children and people using external hearing aids.

Do Ear Candles Hurt?
It is a totally relaxing experience. If it weren’t for the crackling and hissing sounds, due to the burning of the waste deposits you would never know anything was happening to your ear.

How Much Ear Wax Is healthy?
Ear wax repels water and prevents infection. Ear wax normally just dries up and leaves the ear but in some cases it accumulates.

Why Is Propolis Added and How Does It Act Inside The Ear?
Propolis has been added to the blend of beeswax in the ear candle and its properties combine with the beneficial effects of the ear candle making them even more effective. Once the candle is lit, propolis vapours delicately fill the ear canal. So, thanks to their new propolis enriched formula Happy Ear Candles are even more effective to keep your ears clean.

Are There Any Precautions To Be Taken?
For safety reasons we recommend you do not use ear candles alone. It is best done by a second person. This will also help you enjoy a relaxing experience. Do not use ear candles if you suffer from acute or chronic diseases. Please consult an appropriate therapist if you are at all unsure about an ear candling treatment. Do not candle your ears if you have a perforated eardrum or tympanostomy tube implants. The same applies to all kinds of inflammations of the ear or skin diseases in or around the ear. Very occasionally allergic reactions to the ingredients are reported. This may be in the form of spontaneous itchiness and can be relieved with suitable eardrops. The application of ear candles is at your own risk and responsibility. If you follow the instructions carefully the treatment will be simple.  Always read the label and use as directed.
