Ionic Footbaths help heal a toxic body
Bioaccumulation, the build up of small amounts of toxic substances, occurs when toxic substances are not excreted fast enough. The liver, kidneys, lungs, skin and colon all function to eliminate toxins and restore the body’s natural balance.
Toxins are held in the body by positively charged electrical-chemical bonds. These positively charged ions in the blood lead to slower metabolism, a weaker immune system and higher levels of acidity in the blood.
The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illnesses are caused by toxins and pollutants in our bodies.
The ionic footbath also helps to make the body’s PH more “alkaline”. An alkaline body is crucial to a person’s health. Diseases thrive in an acidic environment, so the less acidic your body is, the more alkaline it is, and the less prone to contracting diseases.
The prize is in the process
Detoxification is an ongoing process and is not something that should be done drastically. It can be equally damaging to the body to detoxify too quickly. We encourage you to follow a safe and balanced approach to detoxification, which includes being mindful of the foods you consume. The more higher alkaline foods you can incorporate into your diet, the better. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, green drinks, raw foods, plant protein, and alkaline water.
Ionic footbaths are safe, effective and easy
Ionic footbaths detoxify the body and encourage strength and balance.
Sitting in a comfortable chair, a person immerses his/her feet in a copper tub filled with regular tap water and sea salt. Then, an electrical charge is run through the water to break down water molecules into negative and positive ions.
Negative ions are absorbed through the skin of the feet. They engage the positively-charged toxins and neutralize the electro-chemical bond that holds toxins in the body. Once the bond has been neutralized, the toxin can be eliminated via urine, sweat, respiration or osmosis into the water of the footbath.
But, not all toxins in your body will come out via osmosis into the water. In fact, most of the detoxification process will happen through your body’s ordinary elimination cycles. You will notice for 24 – 48 hours after your footbath that your urine, sweat, respiration or body odor may intensify. This is a sign that your body has been stimulated by negative ions to excrete toxins.
Who will benefit from an ionic footbath?
Most people will benefit from having an ionic detox footbath as very few of us have proper alkaline levels, but it can be especially helpful to anyone suffering from GI disorders, yeast or fungal infections, joint pain, skin issues, swollen limbs, low energy, circulatory issues, or cancer.
