Ionic Foot Detox
Why do we need to Detox?
As part of our usual body functionality we naturally detoxify every day. Eliminating toxins and waste via our kidneys, liver, colon, lymph glands, lungs and skin. Toxins can be found in our everyday environment; tobacco, alcohol, food additives, drugs and anesthetics, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial pollutants.
We need our body to function optimally and rid our systems of these toxins as they are harmful waste products which attack our immune system and can cause a wide variety of side effects, including; lethargy and tiredness, headaches and migraines, colds and flu, bad skin, breath and body odor problems, sinus problems, the list goes on. In fact, some theory exists to suggest that detoxification may at some point be suggested as an alternative to the prevention of immune deficiency diseases.
How does the Ionic Detox Foot Bath work?
While immersing your feet in the foot bowl, a series of timed positive and negative ions that the system emits, invigorates, re-conditions and synchronizes the body’s natural ionic flow. The result is that your body can detox safely and at it’s own pace by mobilizing residues and waste stored within the body. This detoxification happens mainly after the treatment and is likely to take place via the organs of detoxification i.e. the kidneys, liver and skin. Short treatments of 15 or 30 minutes in 72-hour cycles have generated the best results in clinical trials.
There is no discomfort whilst having the ionic detox treatment, the entire process takes 30 minutes for adults and is completely safe to use. It is however, not recommended for pregnant ladies, anyone with a pacemaker or an organ transplant. It is indeed a pleasurable experience. You will be astounded and curious as the water changes from clear to lightly color, then to darker shades.
There are many reasons why the water changes color, when the system is activated it creates an electrolytic flow within the water, substances that are present in the water such as salt, chlorine, magnesium, copper, detergents will all influense color change. Also anything present on the skin such as bacteria, dead skin cells and fungal infections will also influence the color change. That is why the color change can vary from person to person and also from treatment to treatment.
