There are many ways to use the detox foot pads. The first way I recommend is to wear three on each foot (depending on the size of your feet) the first night, so you can figure out what area of your feet are producing the most goo, and then focus on that area (with one on each foot) until that area is clean, and comes back in the morning white, vs. filled with goo. You should be able to feel better the quickest with this method. But, there are so many other methods to use the detox foot patches. One lady uses only one per night to help her sleep, and she rotates which foot and which area she puts them on, every night. This saves her money, and does a very slow detox, but still works well for her. Everybody is different, and it depends on how many toxins, what kind of toxins, and how often you are exposing your body to toxins. It can take MONTHS of the goo to disappear from the foot pads. My husband wore them and it took him only one month, and he doesn't have as healthy a lifestyle as I do! It took me over 3-4 months to get my arches to come out clean in the morning. However, you don't have to use them for that long, to still get health benefits. If you notice that you are feeling better, sleeping better, having more energy, the foot pads ARE working. So if you can only afford on month for right now, I still recommend that. Many people are on limited, fixed incomes right now, and our economy isn't really helping us feel safe financially. We don't want to spend on something unnecessary, but I see it as health should be our top priority. That way we can continue to live our lives, work, earn money, and not feel sick. I also would recommend trying them on different areas of your feet.... the underside of your toes, the heels, the balls of your feet, and the arches. You also can put them directly on a swollen or inflamed area (elbows, knees, etc) if there are no open wounds in the area. You will be amazed at the inflammation that it pulls out. One lady uses the detox foot pads for her children. They used to be disruptive in school, and wouldn't sleep well at night. Now, they sleep like babies, and she only uses one foot pad per kid per night. That is all it takes. I know I sleep better with the foot pads on my feet at night. Some people that I know hate to have anything on their feet while they sleep. Those folks might do best to use the foot pads during the day.
