Ionized Detox Foot Baths: The Latest Craze in Detox
Posted Sep 13 2008 11:47pm
For a few years now I have been regularly going to a detox foot bath center. Up in Boston there was a great organization that offered 20 minute detox foot baths right in the heart of Boston on Newbury street. I'd frequent this location if I felt a cold coming on, perhaps had a few too many late nights out with alcohol or simply when I felt "toxic."
Either way, there is a whole new dimension to detoxing beyond detox supplements, fasting diets and colon cleansing. I am a huge fan of the detox foot bath as it is a physical representation of your own toxicity. Being a visual person and also passionate about natural health and wellness, I am still fascinated by the detox food bath and love seeing the minute particles of lead, lymph and yeast exit my own body.
If you are unfamiliar with detox foot baths- they are an interesting and pain free way to detoxify your entire system. They work on the premise that both negative and positive ionic charges help to rid the body of toxic waste.
Ionic Detox foot baths work by sending a small current that goes in a circuit through the body and generates positively charged ions. The high concentration of the ion field attaches to the negatively charged toxins neutralizing them and the body is then able to discard them through the approximate 2000 pores that are on the bottom of your feet. You can then experience the correct acid-alkaline ph balance as nature intended. It's painless and takes about 30 minutes. Even children ages 4 and up can safely use it under supervision.
People who should not use this foot bath are people with pace makers or who have organ transplants or expectant or nursing mothers.
Detox foot baths are extremely beneficial for the following 7 reasons:
1) Enhancing the immune system
2) Assist in recovery time from injuries and surgery
3) Can relieve pain and joint stiffness due to arthritis
4) Improves sleep pattern
5) Remove heavy metals
6) Removes blood clot material
7) Improve liver and kidney function
Probably the most fascinating aspect of this detox is that during the use of an ionic foot bath the color of the water changes. Literally, you witness the various toxins exiting your body. The various colors can tell you what area the body may be detoxing.
Black or brown water is the liver.
Orange; the joints.
Dark green; the gallbladder
Yellowy green; kidneys, urinary tract,
White foam; Lymph nodes draining
Blue tint; yeast
Red flecks; blood clot material
Black flecks; heavy metals
The color of the water may be different for each individual due to water you use such as city water, well water, mineral water and the state of your health. When you put the metal array into water by itself you may see color changes in the water such as a brownish color. But it is the oily residue floating on the top that determines if you are getting rid of unwanted toxins in the body. The more you use the machine the less you will have yucky build up in the water.
I highly recommend at least trying a detox foot bath once. There are now detox foot pads readily available at locations like walgreens and CVS, but the amount of toxins that can be expelled from your body through a detox foot bath is of no comparison.
