With the advent of the industrial revolution, the levels of toxicants in our water, air and soil have risen dramatically such that even newborn infants are born with toxic elements and chemical pollutants in their bodies. There are tens of thousands of chemicals in use today and more than a forth of these are known to be toxic and nothing is known about their interactive effects. The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illness are caused by toxins and pollutants in our bodies.
Metals, such as mercury and cadmium are everywhere and impossible to avoid. Lead can block red blood cell formation. 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 feet have over 7200 nerve endings and 2000 sweat glands. In addition to having arteries and veins cross paths in the feet, these factors make the feet a natural gateway for disposal of waste products. Detox Foot Bath is effectively re-balancing the cells’ equilibrium of positive and negative ions, which aids in the dispersal of unwanted toxins. The human body functions best when the ions are balanced at 80% negative and 20% positive. An ionic detox, helps to facilitate the alkalization process through the process of ionization, which removes “free radicals” from the body.
What we put into our body, such as the foods we consume, have either acidic or alkalizing properties. The more of the higher alkaline foods you can incorporate into your diet the better.
Pacific College Alumna and Oncology have done a urine pH test before the ion foot detox for more than 7,000 people and then another pH test after the detox to compare the results. Post detox pH levels of all the participants were right in the middle of the spectrum, as it should be, and noticeably more alkaline than before the detox.
The Ion Foot Bath detoxification accelerates change in the body. Aging and disease states are characterized by a diminishing anabolic capacity and an increasing catabolic capacity. Toxic buildup of cellular waste and debris is the inevitable outcome of these trends. Reversing them through whole body detoxification requires nutritional support, particularly digestive enzymes, reduction of stress hormones, trace minerals and fatty acids, which are involved in the movement and transport of raw materials in the body.
While the client’s feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the foot bath system.
It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body’s lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session.
Many different colors and objects will appear in the water during Ion foot detox bath sessions. As best as we have been able to determine based on correlations performed with an Ion foot detox bath.
|Color or Particle||Material or Area of the Body Being Detoxified|
|Black||Detoxifying from liver|
|Black Flecks||Heavy metals|
|Brown||Detoxifying from liver, cellular debris, tobacco|
|Dark Green||Detoxifying from gallbladder|
|Orange||Detoxifying from joints|
|Red Flecks||Blood clot material|
|White Cheese-Like Particles||Most likely yeast|
|White Foam||Detoxifying from Lymphatic system|
|Yellow-Green||Detoxifying from kidneys, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area|
It is suggested that you begin with a total of 6 sessions over a 5 week period to maximize detoxification. As a general rule, the maximum bathing frequency for persons under fifty years of age is once every other day for fourteen sessions with a three-week break before beginning the next sequence. The maximum bathing frequency for persons over fifty is once every third day with a two-week break after fourteen sessions.
Client’s who feel chronically tired after a bath or reports feeling angry, panicky, etc. the baths are spaced further apart. Fatigue indicates an overstressed condition, and emotional upheaval indicates that emotional toxins are being released along with chemical ones.
