History of Ionic Footbath
Detoxification in this manner has origins stemming back 5000 years to the Eastern Indian traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. This system of healing used concentrated sea salt baths to draw out impurities in the body. This type of therapy was also practiced in Roman times in conjunction with the use of public baths. In both cases, impurities were drawn away from the body; from lower concentrations (in the body) to higher concentrations (in terms of salt) in the surrounding water, through both osmosis and diffusion.
The use of ionization; where water (in the confines of a foot bath) is charged with both positive and negative ions (acting then in a similar way to concentrated salt in water) is a new idea, but it is founded on the same historical principle. However, the results of using ionization are much more dramatic and noted in shorter periods of time.
Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification has many therapeutic applications. This type of therapy can be used as a precursor to the treatment of specific conditions that are connected to toxic congestion in the body. For example:Constipation, Fatigue, Headaches, Kidney or Bladder issues (Cystitis), Lung issues (Emphysema, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Asthma etc.), Skin conditions (Dermatitis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea)
Foot detoxes can also be used to enhance specific therapies, like natural weight loss therapy, aid in quitting smoking.
Other conditions that may be aided through Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification include a weekend immune systems related to complications from exposure to cigarette smoke, environmental pesticides and pollutants, industrial toxins, contaminants and heavy metal toxicity.
How Does it Actually Work?
Through a process called electrolysis, the water in an Ionic Foot Bath (in combination with added sea salt) is charged into positive and negative ions. Toxins are also charged particles and as they circulate through the blood in the region of the foot, they are then naturally drawn to their opposite charge in the water that the foot is submersed in.
Initiated through the attraction of opposite charges and facilitated through both osmosis and diffusion, any negatively charged toxins are drawn to positively charged ions in the water and any positively charge toxins are drawn out into the water by negatively charged ions. In the end these toxins are then neutralized in the water of the foot bath. What you see with a change in color to the water in the foot bath relates in a visual way to accumulated toxins from the body being released from the body into this bath.
What You Will See:
What’s really interesting is what we observe after experiencing a series of Ionic Foot Baths. With continued sessions you will start noticing that the water in the foot bath becomes less discolored and remains more like clear water. This is a sign of being cleansed from accumulated toxic build-up in the body. Digital photographs of the water of the Ionic Foot Bath are taken after each session, so you can see visually the dramatic changes that are occurring in the water of the foot bath; in that it is now becoming more clear and less polluted with toxins (or particulate) from the body.
Distilled water (pure water) is used as the water medium in the Ionic Foot Bath, void of any other toxins, metals, impurities etc. as often found in “regular” tap water. This enables one to see visually what truly presents in the water in terms of released toxins from the body following an Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification. The results are amazing! Have a look… Specific water discoloration in the Ionic Foot Bath signifies specific organ/tissue congestion, as shown in the following chart:
