Do you recall the way you felt the last time you stood next to a waterfall or walked along a sunny beach with the waves breaking at your feet? Remember how you felt when you breathed deeper into your lungs and abdomen; your brain cleared and the pains in your joints subsided. It made you feel more relaxed and at peace with the world, it detoxified your body into a healthier condition. This invigorating reaction was caused by the ionization of trillions of water molecules as they crashed to earth.
Our ion foot bath uses brass and stainless steel electrodes. These electrodes cleanse, balance and enhance the bio-energy [the vital energy force present in the breath of bodily fluids]. This energy is the electromagnetic force that is stored in the body and utilized by our cells. Chinese medicine refers to this energy as the “chi.” The complex energy fields permeate and realign the body’s energy field while improving oxygen levels.
An ionic foot bath is said to work giving the hydrogen in the water a positive charge. The positive charge is thought to attract the negatively charged toxins in your body. The ions in the foot bath water supposedly hold a charge that enables it to bind to heavy metals and toxins in your body, comparable to how a magnet works. Other negative ions are simply neutralized.
Disorders and diseases of the body have vibration frequencies that are incompatible with healthy cells; thus, they disrupt the cells’ natural oscillation and polarity. This disruption creates imbalance and chaos within each precious cell. When cells are in an imbalanced state, they are unable to help the bodily functions needed for healing, including ridding itself of heavy metals, parasites and other toxins. When cells are fully charged, they have more oxygen and are able to experience electrical balance, which results in a feeling of a healthy attitude, vitality, well-being, and this enables the body to heal itself. This balance increases our sense of awareness and our sense of the mind/body/spirit connection. Darkfield studies have shown this machine significantly improves oxygen levels.
Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs, along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions. Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons [free radicals are unpaired electrons]. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charges ions.
We live in a toxic world. In fact, we are exposed to the greatest toxic load in the history of our planet. These toxic residues build up in our bodies resulting in a greater incidence of allergies, and mental and physical incapacitation. It is essential to go through a good detoxification process to maintain health and avoid disease.
Most healing traditions throughout the world offer body purification as a means of healing and avoiding disease – except Western Medicine.
An Ion Cleanse helps to purify the body more effectively because of its stress and relaxing effects, which in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.
Most people experience an increased sense of well-being and more energy – immediately. Children (over 5) report better clarity. Couples planning families are recommended to use the foot bath. Women interested in breast health will remove body toxins. Older persons have reported more energy and clarity.
During an ionizing foot bath, there are many things that contribute to the variation in water color. Some detoxification foot bath critics believe water in a basin will naturally change to a brown-orange color due to electrolytic reaction, particularly when an array, salt, water minerals and water impurities are involved. The real truth - when feet are in water, the color is also affected by the oils released from sebaceous glands, dead skin cells and user acidity and alkalinity levels.
The electrolytic process besides neutralizes toxins enabling them to back out and exit through the pores of the feet. Negative ions within the body largely help the body detoxify itself through normal processes like urination, defecation and sweating. Not all toxins leave the body through the feet or skin. An unusual amount of a particular color may indicate that a person has accumulated toxins in certain areas or from certain conditions.
A particular color may point out that an ionic detox is helping those areas. Instead of focusing so much on color changes, focus more on how you feel when you’re done. When I do an ionic foot detox the selling point for me is this, I sleep better at night because I have less pain.
The product manufacturer recommends treatments once or twice weekly. For those suffering from illnesses, it is advisable a session be done less often. This is because an unwell person goes into “healing mode” after treatment, during which they may feel tired or lethargic.
The Ion Cleanse does not heal or cure disease or any condition. It helps detoxify the body. If your health problem or lack of energy is caused by toxic buildup that the Ion Cleanse resolves, it may be diminished by the treatment, but not cured. The treatment assists your body to heal itself. That is the premise of naturopathic medicine.
