Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification Therapy:
Detoxification in the form of Ionic Foot spas originates back 5000 years to the Eastern Indian traditions of Ayur Vedic 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.
How An Ionic Foot Bath Actually Works:
Through a process called electrolysis, the water in an Ionic Foot Bath (in combination with added Himalayan 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 charged 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 colour to the water in the foot bath relates in a visual way to accumulated toxins from the body being released into the bath.
With continued sessions one can start to notice that the water in the foot bath becomes less discoloured and remains clearer. This is a sign of being cleansed from accumulated toxic build-up in the body.
Therapeutic Applications of Ionic Foot Baths:
Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification has many therapeutic applications. This type of therapy can be used both:
- Kidney or Bladder issues (Cystitis)
- Lung issues (Emphysema, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Asthma etc.)
- Skin conditions (Dermatitis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea)
What to Expect After an Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification Session:
Most patients experience a general sense of wellness following each session, but can also include any of the following:
- increased energy
- enhanced sense of calmness
- clearer thought processes
- the need to urinate more while the body continues to detox
Also, some clients have reported parts of their body feeling itchy or uncomfortable, however these are normal reactions as a result of the shifting toxins.
