Ionic Detoxification is a process of alternating positive and negative ion charges during a foot soak creating a process call “Iontophoresis,”an FDA approved modality. The foot detox is a relaxing experience and doesn't hurt in any way. The whole process takes 20-30 minutes to complete.
The principle of the Ionic Detoxification process is to use micro currents to transfer ions in and out of our cells and restore the balance of positive and negative charges of the cells. This process opens up the pathways to the vital ion channels. The “boost” or energy the body receives from the array which sits down in the water while you soak your feet, allows this amazing detoxification process to occur. The ions are able to enter the body through the 4,000 large pores we have in our feet, and then the lymphatic system transports the ions throughout the body.
The ions neutralize oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are very slow to exit the body. All our body organs including our liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin and immune system can become energized and stimulated to function at their best. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal process of bowel movements, urination and sweating.
What are some of the health benefits?
Improves our body alkalinity. We want our body pH at 7.45, not acidic which so many of us have. Acidity of our blood pH allows a perfect breeding ground for disease, worms and parasites.
Removes toxins, free radicals and body waste that cause health problems
Stop viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus in our body
Relieve pain and tension (including headaches)
Purify the blood and lymph
The increase of peripheral circulation
Stimulate and balance the immune system
Increase our nutrient absorption
Reduction of inflammation and fluid retention
Helps clear up skin
Assists with weight loss
Speeds up recovery time from disease or injury
Increase oxygen in the body
Why Does the Water Change Color during a Treatment?
During an Ionic detox foot bath, the water in the basin will always change to a brown/orange color due to the reaction between the array, minerals salts, impurities in the water and even the water itself. Once our feet are soaking in the water, the water may further change in color caused from oils released from the sebaceous glands in our feet, dead skin cells and our own body acidity and alkalinity. Some of the neutralized toxins from the detox treatment will also enter the water. An unusual amount of one particular color may indicate that we have accumulated toxins in a certain area and also that the ionic detox is helping those areas.
