Natural Treasure is able to offer our patches at economical pricing for the following reasons:

  1. We import the patches directly from Japan.  You are not paying a middle man.

  3. Natural Treasure does not advertise; therefore, we do not have to add expensive advertising cost into the price of our products.

  4. Natural Treasure does not do free sampling.  There are some patch sellers doing free samples, but their prices are $1.50-2.00 a patch which is double our pricing.  They pass the cost of the “freebies” onto the loyal consumers that do purchase patches.


Foot Detox Patches (Pads) Information
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on the Sap Sheets

What are foot detox patches?

Our detox foot pads, are an amazing product from Japan that works to cleanse your system while you sleep!  You simply wear the patches on the soles of your feet while sleeping at night, and discard the patches in the morning.  The natural ingredients may remove toxins via the lymph system as you are sleeping, usually resulting in a brownish sticky residue in the patches.*  

The brown color above shows a typical patch after 8-10 hours of use.  However, individual results will vary.

Why are the patches worn on the feet?

The foot pads are worn on the feet for a couple of reasons – the feet are considered in Oriental medicine to be “the second heart” – that is, they help return circulation of blood and lymph back up into the torso. With most of our time sedentary these days, this natural pumping action is inhibited and circulation tends to bog down around the feet, ankles and lower legs.

The feet are one of the holographic reflex areas of the body, containing information about the various parts of the body.  If there are toxins present on a specific reflex, then simply place the patch over the area to help facilitate the toxin cleansing process.*

Why these pads are worn on the feet


Can the patches be worn anywhere else on the body?

 The feet are one of the best place to start wearing the foot detox patches.  However, the patches can be worn on several places throughout the body.  The pads can be worn directly over a painful or swollen area. It is probably best to apply the patches applied over a blood-rich spot, like the extremities including the hands, feet, backs of knees, temple, neck, and spine.

How long should I expect to wear the patches?

Overall lymphatic detoxing through the feet can take up to 30 days for the average person. Most people use the pads on the arches of the feet to start with. The pads start becoming lighter in color as less “gooey” lymph is extracted. At that point, other zones of the feet can be addressed and cleared, which usually takes less time. Of course, those with advanced disease states, those taking medication for prolonged period, and the elderly, may need to use the pads over a longer period of time.  Some will see results in a day or two, while others may take several weeks to sense something positive is happening.

What ingredients are in the foot detox patches?

We now offer more than one type of foot detox patch; therefore, ingredients will vary among the different types of patches.  Gold, Silver, Milk Thistle, Enhanced Grapefruit, Blue, Lavender, ZEO & Green Tea patches are currently available.  Our Natural Treasure Sap Sheets are manufactured in Japan by Kenrico.

Wood Vinegar
Source: Ubame Oak (Quercus Phillyraeoides)

Ubame Oak, Quercus phillyraeoides, is placed in the furnace and heated up to 250 degrees Celsius. The smoke is then condensed into the vinegar. The next step is to filter the vinegar at least 5 times, to obtain purity, it is then stored for 6 months. The middle layer of the vinegar is then used in the finished product.  To obtain the powder, the vinegar is then again heated, condensed, and then dried with a special drying machine before our quality inspection is performed. This process yields a very high concentrated extract with an extremely high level of purity.  Wood vinegar is known to be able to improve our blood circulation. This improved blood circulation can lead to improvement from fatigue, headache, double vision, blood pressure, arthritis, and many other similar symptoms.

Bamboo Vinegar
Source: Arrow Bamboo (Pseudosasa Japonica)

Arrow bamboo, Pseudosasa Japonica, is placed into the furnace and is heated up to 250 degrees Celsius. The smoke is then condensed into the vinegar. The next step is to filter the vinegar at least 5 times, to obtain purity, it is then stored for 6 months. The middle layer of the vinegar is then used in the finished product.  To obtain the powder, the vinegar is then again heated, condensed, and then dried with a special drying machine before our quality inspection is performed. This process yields a very high concentrated extract with an extremely high level of purity.  Bamboo vinegar is said to have double the effect of the wood vinegar. Due to its rarity, bamboo vinegar costs almost twice as much as wood vinegar.

Source: Shell of a crab

Chitosan is the result of the biomass research; it is extracted from the shell of a ‘crab shrimp’ and added to the Sap Sheet. Chitosan products have been used now for over 30 years by water companies to trap toxins, grease, heavy metals, and oils. It is the second most plentiful fiber, after cellulose. Chitosan products are also used extensively by the medical profession due to their remarkable ability to promote wound healing, such as burns and skin inflammation.  Extensive studies have also been carried out to determine its fat binding properties. The results found it to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol by 6% and enhance the HDL (good) cholesterol by 10%. It has also been successfully marketed as a weight loss supplement.

For those with a sensitive/allergy to Chitosan we offer several patches that do NOT contain Chitosan: Grapefruit,  Green Tea, Lavender, Milk Thistle Patches and Zeo.

Source: Houttuynia cordata

This plant is native to Japan, Java and Nepal and is found at altitudes of over 6200 feet. It has been proved to contain a variety of flavoids, flavonoid glycosides (afzerin, quercitrin, isoquercitrin) and pyridine alkaloids. Its essential oil was found to consist mainly of decanal (capry aldehyd), dodecanal (lauryl aldehyd) and 2-hendecanon (methyl nonyl ketone). It has been recognized for generations for its strong absorption properties.

Loquat Leaf

There is over 3000 years of history behind ‘muxibustion therapies’ and it has been used extensively in Buddhist medicine. In India it is widely used to treat many conditions and it has been crowned the king of all herbal medicines.  The Loquat leaf contains malic acid, tartaric acid, citric acid, tannate, carotene, vitamins A, B and C. Its leaves and kernel contain amygdalin, otherwise known as vitamin B17, or laetrile. It is known because of its ability to promote the secretion of body fluids and it also has antitussive, expectorant, antiemetic properties.

Vitamin C
Source: Orange

A powerful antioxidant which scavenges freed radicals that would do oxidative damage to tissues.

Vegetable Fiber
Source: Corn (corn fiber)

Vegetable fiber is used to prolong the lifetime of the sap sheet. Its fiber prevents ingredients from hardening due to humidity.

Source: Tourmaline (semi precious) stone

Tourmaline is a very popular gemstone and collectors mineral. It exists in all colors, and the multicolored stones are unsurpassed in splendor. Tourmaline is both pyroelectric and piezoelectric. If a specimen is put under a pressure or temperature change, it will generate an electrical charge.  Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese word “Turamali” which was given to mixtures of unidentified gem gravels in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. Tourmaline exerts a cleansing and liberating energy upon our entire nervous system with a clearing and stabilizing effect. Tourmaline is best known as one of the only minerals to emit far infrared heat and negative ions.

What if I am allergic to shellfish or Chitosan?

For those with a sensitive/allergy to Chitosan we offer several patches that do NOT contain Chitosan:
Grapefruit, Green Tea, Lavender, Milk Thistle Patches
& Zeolite Pads.

What if I don’t see anything in the patches?

Some people don’t seem to get a lot of “stuff” coming out of the feet at night due to a sluggish lymphatic circulation. These people would do better to wear the pads during the day, to get a fuller benefit from the pumping of circulation through the feet.

How long should I wear the pads each day?

At night the pads should be worn 8-10 hours, and never more than 12 hours.
During the day, the pads should be worn 6-8 hours.  

What kind of improvement can I expect to see with the patches?

Reports of more energy, better sleep, clearer and more positive thinking, and relief from all kinds of symptoms, including pain, are common. After the initial nightly applications of several weeks, they may be worn once or twice a week, or a few times a month, to continue to help the body with exposure to daily pollutants, as well as toxicities that accumulate from stress.  However, use of the patches are individual experiences and no claims or guarantees are implied, expressed, or guaranteed.  Our Foot Pads are not FDA approved, as many natural things are not.

What conditions will foot patches treat?

Foot patches will not treat or cure any disease or ailment, and should not be used as a substitute for medical care.  No claims are made, implied or expressed.  Foot pads are not regulated by the FDA.

What is actually coming out into the used foot detox patches?

This will vary from person to person, but lab analysis of used foot detox patches show a variety of chemicals in the patches.  Testing shows traces of heavy metals, petrochemicals, synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and more.

Where can I get my patches tested?

There are several labs that will test the patches, but be prepared to spend a couple hundred dollars for a good quality lab analysis.  There are several very inexpensive lab test that will only test for a small amount of ingredients and are not quantitative only qualitative.  Therefore, we really do not feel that some of the inexpensive test provide very good results or assessment to consumer of what is actually present in the used foot pads.

What’s the difference between a patch, pad or sap sheet?

Nothing, they are all the same.  You will see them referred to as any of the following; foot detox patches, pads, or sap sheets.

Are the adhesives included with the patches?

Yes each patch comes with one adhesive.

What the difference between the Carbon Titanium Adhesives and the White Adhesives?

The regular white adhesives are designed to help the patch adhere (stick) to the feet, without leaving large amounts of residue on the feet in the morning.  They simply function to keep the patch on your foot.  You can read about carbon titanium adhesives here.

Confused about which patch to try?

Natural Treasure offers variety packs for you to try more than one type of patch.

The origin and history of the detox pad

In 15th century, during the end of Muromachi period (1333 – 1573 AD), Japanese’s alternative medicine was on the rise and the practice of alternative medicine became a profession that attracted some of the best minds in the country. Up to 120 remedies were introduced. The traditional philosophy underlying Japanese’s alternative medicine can be summarized as the belief that health depends on unimpeded circulation, which in turn depends on the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis. Disease is an imbalance resulting from the interaction between the person’s constitution and the environment, both external and internal, which forms the context of the person’s life.

During the Meiji period (1868-1912 AD) Japan was opened to the influence of European culture. Eager to modernize, the emphasis in medicine shifted to adopting Western methods of surgery, anesthesia and microbiology. Japanese’s alternative medicine was all but abandoned. It began to attract attention again as early as 1920s. During that time, a number of organizations for Japanese’s alternative medicine were founded, including the Japan Toyo Medical Association based at the Asian Medicine Research Center at Chiba University and the Japan Society of Oriental Medicine.

The ingredients of the Sap sheet or Detox pad were part of the remedies introduced during the Marunochi period. At that time, Sap sheet was the best remedy to treat acute illness, to regenerate energy and prevent recurrences and lingering debility. It was also used as a remedy to eliminate skin infection and to remove unpleasant odor.

The clinical and research efforts for the recognition of alternative medicine, including Sap sheet have been so successful that today Public Health Insurance covers 148 alternative medicine formulas prescribed by physicians, 861 over the counter preparations, 180 raw herbs and 53 powdered herbs prescribed by physicians. The Ministry of Health approves herbs and herbal formula by the same process that governs new pharmaceutical products and strictly regulates the quality of all Japanese’s alternative medicine products. For all products standardization, specification, purity, stability and microbiological assays are among the mandatory tests that are monitored by the Ministry of Health. Public confidence in the ability of the government to regulate public safety is very high.
