Our daily environment is riddled with toxins, in the air, water, food, and even in our clothing fibres. Cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine are also major sources of toxins. Our bodies store all of these toxins - wastes, chemicals and heavy metals, which in turn result in more susceptibility of illnesses, allergies and other conditions. Acne, rashes, blotchy skin, dark circles under the eyes, swollen joints or limbs are often signs of built-up toxins in the tissues of the body. Lethargy and fatigue are also typical signs of toxins within our bodily systems. To relieve the strain on our organs, particularly the kidneys, liver, intestines and immune system, it is very important to maintain a detoxification regimen.
Benefits of detoxification may include:
• Removal of toxins, heavy metals and bodily waste.
• Faster recovery time from illness, accident or surgery.
• Reduced inflammation and fluid retention.
• Enhanced nutrient absorption.
• Increased oxygen levels, focus and energy.
• Inactivation of viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus.
• Improved sleep and relief from tension.
• Improved immunity and complexion.
• Slowed signs of ageing.
• Seasonal allergy relief.
• Symptomatic relief from edema, gout, swollen joints, pain, migraines and headaches.
How does the Ionic Detox Foot Bath Work?
The success of the Ionic Detox Foot Bath is through the production of positive and negative ions in this non-evasive therapeutic treatment. The main unit of the Detox Foot Bath delivers an electrical current through the array that is placed in the water alongside the feet. This current, combined with the water and salt, causes the metals inside the array to generate positive and negatively-charged ions by separating the oxygen and hydrogen components of the water. An ion is a charged atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron; creating an electro-magnetic field capable of neutralizing oppositely charged particles such as toxins in the human body. The ions produced by the Ionic Detox Foot Bath create a gentle vibration that aids the release of unwanted toxin particles through the many pores on the soles of the feet via osmosis.
(cannot use the Ionic Detox Foot Bath)
• Persons with a pacemaker or battery-operated or electrical implant.
• Pregnant or breast-feeding women.
• Organ transplant recipients.
• Persons taking medication, the absence of which would mentally or physically incapacitate them. (irregular heartbeat, seizures, etc.)
Before each treatment, it is recommended to be well-hydrated, have good blood sugar and to take any required medications. If you have any medical concerns about receiving a treatment, please consult your physician before booking a session.
Frequency of Usage:
It is recommended to start a detox regime by receiving a set of 14 treatments, every other day, then refraining from detoxing for a week. For persons 50 and older, it is recommended to start a regime of 14 treatments, every three days, then refraining from detoxing for two weeks.
What to Expect:
Following an initial consultation, the feet are placed into a spa basin containing warm water and an array, attached to the Ionic Foot Bath unit. Salt is added to the water to adjust the pH for optimal detoxification. Each treatment lasts 30 minutes, during which the water will gradually change colour as the toxin particles are pulled from the feet. The machine will shut off after the 30 minute period and the feet are removed and cleaned.
After each session, it is highly recommended to drink plenty of water to help flush out any remaining toxins. It is also suggested to take a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement, to retain valuable minerals that may be released during the treatment. Natural minerals attach to toxins or harmful metals in the body, so the detoxification process may reduce these minerals.
To keep an internal balance and continue improving health following detoxification treatments, refrain from alcohol consumption, smoking, eating foods high in sugar and salt. Also, maintain a regime of exercise and incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as part of a daily diet to get important vitamins, minerals and fibre.
