Ionic Detox Footbath


 What is an Ionic Foot Detox,

you ask? 

The control box of the Ionic Foot Detox unit delivers an electrical current through the ionizer array that is placed into the water alongside the feet. The low-level direct current to the array causes the metals within the array in combination with water and salt to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating the oxygen and hydrogen components of water.


This separating of oxygen and hydrogen components is a form of “dialysis."

All that's in the water is a sprinkle of pink Himalayan salt. That's it!

How does it feel? Well, its tingly sometimes, sometimes slightly prickly, sometimes it feels like nothing and afterwards it feels really good. Light, clean and fresh.



The negatively charged ions are absorbed through our skin. They travel through the body and attach themselves to toxic substances with the opposite charge. Since most toxins in our body are positive in charge, (i.e. heavy metals ions), they will be conveniently neutralized so they can more easily be eliminated via our body’s natural eliminative channels. Most importantly, they have been neutralized and can no longer wreck havoc with our hormones, our nervous systems, our organs, and our tissues.

The change of color in the water happens with the feet inside the bath or even without the feet in the bath and it is mainly due to the Electrolysis that happens when electrical current flows. It is a result of a chemical reaction between the array (metal) , the salt (water) and the quality of the water.

However there is in most cases a noticeable difference when the procedure is done with feet in the saltwater bath which suggests that some matter is released from the body into the water which is only the beginning of the detox-process.

The majority of the detoxification is not during the foot bath but within the next 48hrs and it happens following the natural detoxification procedure within the human body involving liver, kidney, skin etc. The toxins are removed and flushed out the digestive track; some have loose or odorous stool the days following the session.

You can do a ion foot detox fairly often, but will need time in between sessions for body clearing, until your body is feeling clean and stable. If you are feeling well we recommend maintenance sessions of 1 time per month or at the change of seasons. Everyone is unique and each person will have to adjust to his or her own bodies needs.

Negative Ion Research
Numerous studies have established the effect of Negative Charged Ion environment on the human body. The negative charged environment has stimulated the body's own healing mechanism in the case of stress and specific physical problems.

  • Increase blood flow with resultant increased oxygen-carrying capacity, both of which are basic to help the body healing itself;

  • Changes in migration of calcium ions which can either bring calcium ions to heal a broken bone in half the usual time, or can help move calcium away from painful, arthritic joints;

  • The pH balance (acid/alkaline) of various body fluids. (Often out of balance in conjunction with illness or abnormal conditions)

  • Hormone production from the endocrine glands can be either increased or decreased by Negative Ion stimulation;

  • Altering of enzyme activity and other bio-chemical processes.

Nature Creates Ions
In nature, ions are generated in abundance wherever energy is transferred into the air. For example by ultra-violet light from the sun, by lightning and thunderstorms, by friction within wind and rain, the splitting of water into droplets by waterfalls and surf - and by natural radiation in rocks and soil.

An ionic foot detox machine is a modern energy therapy device which balances the body's natural energy system. By introducing a high level of negative ions into the water of a foot bath, the feet, utilizing principles of reflexology and the science of ionization and osmosis, create a positive cellular environment and enable the body's natural detoxification processes to function at their peak. An ionic foot detox is a safe and effective natural healing therapy.

Potential Health Benefits
The body can also eliminate parasites, pinworms, and various colored mucous; even drawing massive amounts of nicotine from the tissue and joints of people that quit smoking several years ago. As your body is detoxified, cleansed, balanced and able to function at its fullest capacity once again, you will experience a sense of relief throughout the body, increased energy, and improved mental clarity.

  • You may want a doctors permission if you are on medications or are diabetic.


Who should NOT use the machine?

  • People with a Pacemaker or any other battery-operated or electrical implant.

  • Women who are pregnant or nursing.

  • People with transplanted organs. (Gallbladder or hysterectomies ok)

  • Anyone who is on heart beat regulating medications or blood thinners.

  • People with Type 1 Diabetes.

  • People who suffer from epilepsy or hemophilia.

  • People undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.

  • People who have low blood sugar, should eat before using the footbath.

  • Children under the age of 16 years old.
