Why do I need to detoxify my body?
With the increase in the number of chemicals introduced in the last fifty years, there has been a dramatic increase in incidences of auto-immune disease, allergies and common infections. Dietary habits and exposure to environmental pollutants fill the body with toxins. Detoxification is essential in avoiding disease and maintaining optimum health. The ionic footbath, along with a healthy diet and low stress will provide a thorough and proficient way to maintain long-term elevated levels of energy and wellness.
Chemicals can act as toxins that can block receptor sites on cells, and cause changes in calcium homeostasis selectively killing cells. Metals and chemical toxins weaken the immune system and cause increased vulnerability to virus, bacterial fungal and parasitic infections. In an attempt to detoxify these substances, our bowels, kidneys and liver are being overloaded. Our elimination channels have become blocked or dysfunctional because of these synthetic chemicals and the western diet that is so acid forming.
To relieve the strains on the kidneys and liver it is more important than ever to maintain a detoxification regimen. The ion foot bath is designed to relieve these strains and help the body re-balance its energy fields allowing organs to function better.
How does the ionic foot bath detox therapy treatment work?
The ionic foot bath system ionizes the bath water with the unit’s submersible water module. It works by running negative ions through our body, pulling and attracting the positively charged impurities (also known as free radicals), toxins and heavy metals out through our feet into the saline solution in the bath. When your feet are immersed in the water during a 30-minute bath, these impurities are pulled from the body, improving the body’s natural resilience. There will be a noticeable change in the water color and viscosity from the time the process begins and when the process is complete. What you are actually seeing is the cellular waste and oxidation present in the water.
