Ionization Foot Detox
How does it work?
The health benefits of negative ions are well known. When water is ionized and split into H+ and OH- ions (and sometimes into H3O+ and H2O2 ions), these ions are able to enter the body through the 4,000 large pores of the feet. Then the circulatory and lymphatic systems transport the ions throughout the body. These ions neutralize oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body. In this way, all the body’s organs can become energized and stimulated to function optimally. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal processes of urination, defecation and sweating

Do you have any of these symptoms?
There are certain symptoms that can indicate a buildup of toxins in the body. The symptoms can vary from person to person and the amount of toxins also varies. Some of the symptoms that you may have toxins in the body include digestive problems, headaches, constipation, bad breath, poor circulation, weight gain or obesity, acne, allergies, cellulite, and forgetfulness.
Remove toxins, free radicals and body waste products that can cause health problems (In an Aug. ’04 study by Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, there was a significant deposit of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic illnesses.)
- Chelate toxic metals Raise pH levels. Approximately 95% of people experience a state of acidity in which their blood pH is lower than 7.45, indicating an excess of hydrogen ions. This makes an ideal breeding ground for worms, parasites, microorganisms and other critters that lower body function and cause disease.
- In a 2008 study by Center for Research Strategies (crsllc.org), 31 participants underwent ionic detox two times per week for 12 weeks. The amount of aluminum and arsenic in their blood was measured before and after the 12 weeks. The average blood aluminum level decreased by 46% from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb. The average blood arsenic level decreased 24% from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb.
- In a 2002 study by Doctor’s Data in St. Charles, IL, there was an average increase in toxic metals found in the foot basin from nine independent sessions. Here is a list of metals that increased in concentration.
Why does the water turn black?
Black ---- Liver, Alcohol, Asthma
Grey ---- Heavy Metals
Brown ---- Liver, Tobacco, Fat Waste
Green ---- Kidneys, Bladder, Urinary System, Feminine Problems
Light Green ---- Immune Systems
Orange ---- Arthritis, Rheumatism
White with Bubbles ---- Lymphatic Systems, Skin Allergies
White with Particles ---- Flatulence, Candida
During the session, the water in the basin will always change to a brown/ orange color due to the electrolytic reaction involving the array, salt, water, minerals and impurities in the water. But when feet are in the water, the colors are also affected by oils being released from the sebaceous glands, the dead skin cells and the user’s own acidity/ alkalinity. Some of the neutralized toxins will also exit the body back out through the pores of the feet due to osmosis. An unusual amount of a particular color may indicate that a person has accumulated toxins in certain areas or from certain conditions and that ionic detox is helping those areas.
