Why Detoxify the Body?
Regardless of where we live, our environment is more polluted than at any time in history and this trend is not changing. The air we inhale, the water we drink, the food we eat, plus all things we touch or use contain residue from petrochemicals, pesticides, herbicides, toxins, heavy metals and other chemicals. The accumulation of these toxins in our body contributes to our overall decline in health and quality of life.
It is only logical that an ongoing detoxification program may reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve our overall quality of life.
What is Detoxification?
The exposure to toxic chemicals and heavy metals is the source of toxicity in the body. After years of exposure and ingestion of these substances, the body
becomes less efficient in eliminating these toxins and they are stored in the liver, body fat, or other parts of the body. The result is symptomatic of illness, chronic conditions, and sometimes death.
The effective use of detoxification techniques can make the difference between an effective healing program and endless
frustration resulting in failure. Ionic Foot Bath is an invaluable tool to any individual seeking a successful detoxification; however, it must be understood that any detoxification will only be successful with a well-planned and executed protocol.
Detoxification or body cleanses may be accompanied with moderate to severe pain, emotional swings, and peculiar physiological conditions.
For individuals seeking a successful detoxification program or body cleanse it is recommended to make gradual and positive lifestyle changes for a couple of months prior to detoxification. The rewards of successful detoxification can include increased health and longevity, a sense on well-being that resonates throughout your whole body.
Can I use the Ionic Foot Bath while taking prescription medication?
Yes, As long as you and your health professional are comfortable with the system.
No, If you are on life-sustaining drugs. However, after you have completed the drug regimen and you have obtained permission from your health professional, use of the system may aid in your recovery.
Can I place my hands in the Ionic Foot Bath?
Yes! The system is designed to be used with either the hands or feet.
Why does the water color change during a session?
The water color change is attributed to the water becoming excited when it is ionized by the water module and its reaction with the minerals in the water and toxins that are released by the body. The color is dependent upon water quality and mineral content, plus your general health condition.
While the color change and material floating in the water are important to help determine what areas are being detoxed, the success of the session is better determined by the color change in the urine and the overall positive change in the symptomatic problems of the treated individual.
During a session the treatment water may go through multiple physical changes. Below is a simple water color chart corresponding with the material or body part that may be detoxifying. Note that certain minerals in the water may also result in different coloration.
The chart below gives an example of what many experts believe the colors are attributed to.
During a session the color changes in the water can be dramatic or minimal. Color change is not the most important factor when judging the success of a session. The water does not always change color during a session and is not always an indicator of energy being produced.
It should be understood that water color will generally change if your feet are soaking in the bucket or not. Color change can be related to the reaction of the water module’s surgical steel with the type of water (city, well, mineral, etc) used and/or the state of the individual’s health. When the water becomes excited it ejects tiny particles which become visually observable in the water. This will tend to change the water color.
Why do I feel energized or fatigued after a session?
People often feel either energized or fatigued after a session. Most detoxification is the result of positive ions being released in the body. When the body tissues begin to release toxins, the body will feel
fatigue as it becomes overloaded in the attempt to void these toxins from the body. The energized feeling is due to the body receiving more negative ions that energize the body.
Does the Ionic Foot Bath remove only harmful metals from the body?
No, The process will remove both harmful and good minerals from the body. The technology does not discriminate against which minerals are being removed. During a session your body may release toxic minerals such as cadmium, lead, copper, arsenic, and mercury. However, your body may also release beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, boron, etc.
This is why it is imperative that you replace the beneficial minerals.
What is heavy metal poisoning?
Heavy metal poisoning is the underlying cause for many symptomatic illnesses and diseases. There are many individual metals causing varying degrees of illness based on acute and chronic exposures. Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include pain in muscles and joints, chronic fatigue, headaches, vision problems, mental confusion, short-term memory loss, gastrointestinal upsets, food allergies, and multiple other symptoms.
The fact is that all heavy metals are toxic and our bodies require special transport and handling mechanisms to keep them from harming us. The Ionic Foot Bath is an excellent tool to help facilitate heavy metal detoxification. The effectiveness of the Ionic Foot Bath depends on but is not limited to the factors below:
- Organ or body part that needs detoxed
- Current health and physical condition
- Spiritual strength
- Emotional state
