I often get the question of whether the foot detox bath really works! Scientifically all they have proven is that the body tests more alkaline after the foot baths. But what I can say is I notice a difference in my body after the foot baths. I used to get bad swelling in my ankles and the swelling always went down after a foot bath. I had a plantars wart that went away after a soak. A client had a plantars wart for over year then went away within a week after only one foot bath. Another client used it to help with a hangover after her bachelorette party. So does it work? Let your body be the judge! I use the Ionic Foot detox bath from natural options aromatherapy.
How does it work?
The Ionic Cleanse treatment works by osmosis. The array goes into the water with the feet and delivers a current that causes the metals within the array and minerals within the water to generate positively and negatively charged ions. In negative ion mode, the array attracts positively charged contaminants (like a magnet) and pulls them through the soles of your feet. With over 2,000 pores on each foot, it is easier to release toxins this way. In fact, it’s because of the large number of pores that we also use the sole of the foot to get essential oils into your system. Your cells are then energized by the ions, stimulating the release of toxins, oils, acids, fats, heavy metals, yeast, cellular debris and waste that have accumulated over your lifetime. The body can also eliminate parasites, uric acid, and even draw massive amounts of nicotine from the tissue and joints of people that have quit smoking several years ago.
How often do I do it?
It is recommended at 2 times a week for 7 weeks for a full detox. As with most alternative therapies, it is believed that it is good to give the body a rest and let it completely balance out without external stimuli for a period of 1-2weeks. If you are still pulling a large amount of toxins, then you can do another full detox of 2 times per week for 7 weeks. Everyone is unique and each person will have to adjust to his or her own body’s needs. This is also affected by how many toxins you are exposed to. How well do you eat? Are you under a lot of stress? Do you work in a toxic environment?
How is this possible?
