Why Detoxify with an Ionic Foot Bath

Ionic detox has been known to:



  • 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.
  • Inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus
  • Relieve pain and tension including headaches
  • Purify the blood and lymph
  • Stimulate and balance the immune system
  • Enhance nutrient absorption
  • Reduce inflammation and unwanted fluid retention
  • Help clear up skin
  • Assist in weight loss
  • Slow down aging and improve body flexibility
  • Quicken recovery time from disease or injury
  • Increase oxygen in the body
  • Rejuvenate and energize your whole body
  • improve sleep

The Theory Behind the Ionic Detoxification system

The technology of the Ionic Detoxification system has been In development for several decades. The Induction of alternating positive and negative Ion charges during the same treatment Is based on a process called "Iontophoresis." The FDA approved Iontophoresis as a healing modality in 1970.

The field of Electro-Therapeutics was experimented with In the early 1720's. By 1833, Dr. Bernard Raymond Fabre-Palaprat, a French physician, successfully demonstrated that potassium iodide, (blue in color). Introduced Into the skin via a negative battery terminal on one arm, would travel to another area of the body attracted by a positive pole. This opened up a whole range of possibilities In using electrical currents to stimulate, transfer, and administrate fluids and specific compounds Inside the body. At that time, it was not understood how fluids were transferred through cell membranes, but in 2003, the Nobel Prize In Chemistry was awarded to two American scientists. Peter Agre and Roderick MacKinnon, for their discovery of an Ion channel system within cell membranes that generates an Electrical signal to allow certain nutrients and fluids to pass through the membrane.

This channel system maintains the balance of the bioelectrical distribution of nutrients and waste products In and out of the cell. All of the symptoms of aging and degenerative diseases are in one way or another associated with poor hydration within the cell. This diminishes the cell's ability to repair itself and eliminate toxic waste

When cells dehydrate, they bunch up, fusing their membranes together and eliminating Important surface areas for these ion channels to work. Over time, the body becomes more and more toxic and unable to transfer vital nutrients needed for repair or cell replication.

The principle of the Ionic Detoxification system Is to use micro current to facilitate the movement or transfer of ions In and out of cells and restore the balance of positive and negative charges of cells. This painless, non-Invasive micro current opens up the pathways to the vital ion channels.

The "boost" or energy the body receives from the Ion water module (array), which sits down In the water during a treatment, allows this amazing detoxification process to occur.

As water is ionized it Is split into H+ and OH- Ions (and sometimes Into H3O+ and H2O2 Ions), similar to the way water cascading over a waterfall becomes Ionized. These ions are then 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, including the liver, Intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, and Immune system, 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.
When the body is able to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste, then inflammation, edema, and swelling all decrease, allowing
the body to repair itself and reduce pain within muscles arid joints.

Why Does the Water Change Color?

Many sellers of ionic detox foot bath systems have misinformed their customers that the colors they see in the water are toxins that have exited the body. This is mostly false. 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.

Water Color 

Body Area Where The toxins Are
Being removed

Black Liver, Alcohol,  Asthma
Grey Heavy Metals
Brown Liver, Tobacco, Fat Waste
Green Kidney, bladder, Urinary System,
Feminine Problems
Light Green Immune Systems
Orange Arthritis, Rheumatism
White with Bubbles Lymphatic Sytem, Skin Alergies
White with Particles Flatulence, Candida

Always remember that the presence of negative ions in the body mainly helps the body rid itself of toxins through its normal processes of urination, defecation and sweating. Only some toxins leave the body through the pores of the feet Therefore, color changes in the water should not be the main focus. Instead focus on how you feel.

Treatment Protocols

  • It is recommended that the average healthy adult undergo 30 minute sessions two times per week for 5 weeks. Following the 10 sessions, a maintenance program of l session every 7-10 days is recommended.
  • It is recommended that the average healthy 13-17 year old, using the machine with adult supervision, should undergo 15-20 minute sessions one time per week for 10 weeks. Following the 10 sessions, a maintenance program of l session every 14 days is recommended
  • It is recommended that the average healthy 10-12 year old, using the machine with adult supervision, should undergo 10-15 minute sessions one time per week for 10 weeks. Following the 10 sessions, a maintenance program of 1 session every 14 days is recommended.
  • Ionic detox is not recommended for children less than 10 years old.
  • To prevent over-activation of the digestive organs do not eat or drink anything during the session.
  • After the session, do not move rapidly. Take 3-5 minutes of rest and get up slowly. However, if you become hungry or thirsty, eat or drink 15-20 minutes after the session.
