What is Detoxification?

Detoxification is the process of removing toxic elements like heavy metals, mold, yeast, fungus, pesticides, preservatives, and other chemicals from the body. This process is naturally performed in the human body by the liver, kidneys, and even the skin. 

But when the body is overburdened with too many toxins, the natural detoxification process is inhibited. According to the Centers for Disease Control, many illnesses are related to pollutants and toxins in the environment, which enter and build up in the body. 

Detoxification removes excess toxins and enhances the body’s own natural ability to detoxify itself. It’s an essential first step in any treatment plan designed to fight chronic disease and improve overall health.

Why do an Ionic Foot Detox?

The process of an ionic detox foot bath is actually quite simple. We start by filling a tub with warm water. Salt is added to the warm water to improve conductivity. Then we place an array into the tub to produce a gentle electrical current.

This direct current breaks the water into positively charged hydrogen ions and oxygen gas, or negatively charged hydroxide ions and hydrogen gas, depending on the settings we choose.

When the machine is turned on, the patient might notice a slight tingling sensation in the feet. That’s because our bodies are made of water and electrolytes, and they allow the current to travel through the body. This current causes the tingling sensation as it works like a catalyst to boost the body’s own natural detoxifying abilities.

By the end of a 30-minute session, the water changes color. The color change is caused by the oxidation of the metal plates in the array  in addition to the toxins that are pulled off of the body.  There is a chart that helps to explain what areas of the body are detoxing the most.  These colors can change throughout multiple detoxes. 

An ionic foot detox is more effective than other foot detox modalities because the electrical current actually travels throughout the body and stimulates lasting detoxification effects. Other modalities offer similar relaxation benefits, but the effects don’t last, and they can only remove toxins close to the surface of the skin.

Who can Benefit and Are there any Risk?

Anyone can benefit from an ion detox foot bath to boost their overall health. In our experience, patients who suffer from chronic pain, illness, migraines, and fatigue experience the most dramatic improvement.

Ionic footbaths are also beneficial for those suffering from skin conditions, fungal or yeast infection, and digestive issues. This treatment also works well as an accompaniment to other therapies, such as IV therapy and colon hydrotherapy.

Side effects are very rare. However, some patients may experience mild nausea or dizziness after their treatment. You should always let your doctor know if you have any health conditions or take any medications, just to be safe. Patients with diabetes or open sores on the feet should not have a detox footbath.  If you are on blood thinners, then we do not recommend that you do the Ionic foot detox.
