Image result for ayurvedic foot detoxDetoxification 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 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. Such conditions include: constipation, fatigue, headaches, kidney or bladder issues, lung issues, and skin conditions.


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. As charged particles themselves, toxins are naturally drawn to their opposite charges and are pulled into the water as they circulate through the feet. The toxins are then neutralized in the water of the foot bath.


The water of the foot bath changes color and is correlated to the particular toxins being pulled into the water. 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 accumulated toxic build-up being cleansed from the body.
