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.
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.
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.
