Ionic Foot Detox

What is an Ionic Foot Bath?

The Foot Bath is a new tool on the market for detoxing and energizing the body.

Toxins are often an underlying problem that can disturb the body's function and cause some health trouble.   Some ailments can be released with the Detox Foot Spa and a general health improvement is achieved.  It is especially effective for detoxing heavy metals like Mercury.  Heavy metals counteract with some vitamins and hinder the body from absorbing and using them.

The acid/alkaline balance in the body is another important factor in ones health.  Excess acidity which is called acidosis weakens the body's function.  Toxins and waste that the body fails to neutralize and eliminate get back into the system.  An over acidic body is quite a problem today and often overlooked.  The Ionic Foot Spa is said to balance the body's PH level that brings the body back into a healthy state.

The Ionic Foot Spa neutralizes free radicals that can cause damage to the body cells.  It stimulates the circulation and metabolism thus accelerating the body's natural detoxification.  Stagnation and blockages are released which gives you more energy.

A more complex explanation:

The Science Behind the Ionic Foot Bath

Electrolysis is the idea behind how the ionic foot bath actually works. Electrolysis is responsible for a process called ionization.  The equipment which consists of a tub, salt water and an energizing cartridge that creates a flow of electrons changes the water molecules by breaking them down into ions.  After this, the ions are broken down and this process causes a chemical reaction between anions and cations.  then by virtue of osmosis the anions move into the body where they will activate and even strengthen cells that might otherwise have been weakened by toxins.

These anions activate enzymes needed for us to be healthy and help our metabolism function better.  At this point the toxins in the body are drawn downwards to the feet and then released into the saline water in the foot tub.  This happens by osmosis, where the skin acts as a membrane through which things such an anions and toxins can pass. 

How does it work? ( A simpler explanation)

the foot bath is filled with salt water and an electrical current, a converter is placed in the water.  The converter has two electrodes, one produces positive electrons, the other negative electrons.  These positive or negative shared electrons are called ions, that's why it is named Ionic Foot Bath.  The salt acts as a conductor (electrolyte) for the electrons to pass through the water.

The electric current is only mild and you do not feel much.  You may feel a little tingling sensation in your feet, but that's all.  The ions make their way into the body through the feet.  During the session, which takes between 20-30 minutes you sit back and relax.

Throughout the cleanse you will notice color changes in the water as toxins are being removed.  the water color ranges from yellow-green, orange, brown, black to dark green;  you may notice white foam or white cheese-like particles floating on the water's surface, and/or black or red flecks resting at the bottom of the foot basin.

The color and texture indicates which organs or body systems are releasing toxins.  The particles, fat and mucous residues found in the water reflect the wastes that have left your body.

Black--liver and gallbladder

Black Flecks--heavy metals


Brown--liver, tobacco, cellular debris



Red Flecks--celular debris, blood clot material

Yellow--bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area

Cheesy--candidas, fungal infections


Oil Floating--fat
