What is the Ionic Footbath?
Avoiding disease and maintaining vitality as we age
requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment
throughout the body which is virtually impossible to
accomplish in our high-tech, high-stress, toxic society
unless we follow a detoxification program.
The Ionic Footbath is a treatment that detoxifies the
body faster and more effectively than any herbal or
fasting protocols, with little or no stress to the patient.
Used properly, the Ionic Footbath provides a comfortable
and relaxing way to rid the body of toxins without precipitating
a healing crisis or a Herksheimers reaction.
What is the Procedure?
When you arrive at the clinic you are escorted into
the footbath room. We have a sink filled with warm water
that is ankle-deep. You are asked to take off your shoes
and socks, roll your pants up a little bit, sit in a
chair, and immerse your feet into the water. Relax.
Once your feet are in the water the therapist will add
sea salt to increase the conductivity of the water and
then leave the array (the little black box that the
ions come out of) suspended in the water to do it's
job. As you sit there with your feet in the water, you
will see the water change color. The longer your sit,
the more the water changes, and by the end you will
see an amazing sight. We explain to you the colors you
see and the parts of the body they're pulled from. Then
we spray your feet clean, wipe them dry and you're on
The Ionic Footbath is a very gentle and relaxing treatment.
How does it work?
Ionization technology is away to help people avoid disease
and live more energetic lives. The Ionic Footbath neutralizes
toxins in the water the same way it neutralizes toxins
in the body. Place your feet in the water, turn on the
unit, and within seconds, millions of ions enter your
body and begin to neutralize these toxins.
The water molecule utilizes low voltage direct current
to separate the water molecule into positive and negative
ions. The ions travel through the body, attaching to
and neutralizing oppositely charged particles, and osmosis
pulls the neutralized particles out through whatever
surfaces are exposed to the water. (For the purpose
of Ion Cleanse discussions, positive and negative relate
to electrical rather than chemical phenomena.)
An ion is a charged atom that had gained or lost an
electron. This creates a magnetic field capable of attaching
to and neutralizing oppositely charged particles. These
neutralized particles are extracted from the body through
the process called osmosis. Osmosis is a scientific
term that is used to describe the movement of particles
through a membrane from an area of lower concentration
to an area of higher concentration. In this case, the
higher concentration refers to the ion field that is
setup by placing the array into the water while running
The array is placed into the water alongside the hands,
feet, or body while the power supply delivers a low
level direct current to the array. This causes the metals
within the array, in combination with water and salt,
to generate positively and negatively charged ions by
separating oxygen and hydrogen in the water.
We speculate that ions generated by the Ionic Footbath
travel through the body attaching themselves to a multitude
of toxic substances, thereby neutralizing their positive
or negative charge. It maybe possible to reduce pain
and other symptoms caused by a lifetime of toxic buildup
in the body (assuming the symptoms are caused by toxic
buildup). The long-term effectiveness of the Ionic Footbath
detoxification process depends on other life enhancing
changes a person is willing to make.
The chemistry of what's happening in the water
The process of separating oxygen and hydrogen is known
as decomposition, which means oxidation-reduction reaction.
Oxidation means giving up electrons and reduction means
gaining electrons. Water is oxidized at the anode. The
reaction is 2H2O---02+4H+4e- where 4e- stands for 4
negatively charged electrons that are given up in the
Water is reduced at the cathode. The reaction is 41120+4e-
--- 2H2 + 40H- where 4e- stands for the electrons that
are gained in the reduction process. In the overall
decomposition reaction, the volume of F12 produced is
twice the volume of 02:21-1201-1 ---2H2+02. What we
have, therefore, are free negative and positive ions
circulating in a water solution (the physical body is
a water solution), and occasionally combining to form
1-1202, otherwise known as hydrogen peroxide. So we
are dealing with free hydrogen, free oxygen, and various
combinations of both.
When functional, oxygen provides the basic drive for
human metabolism. It is the quarterback detox molecule
of the body and is nature's most potent antimicrobial
agent. Thus, it is the guardian angel of human health.
When dysfunctional, oxygen is oxidizing, acidifying,
and dysoxygenative. This can result in several chronic
disorders including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome,
environmental sensitivity syndrome, and Gulf War syndrome,
all the way to pleomorphic forms and faulty oxygen metabolism.
What comes out Top?
Many colours and objects appear in the water during
the Ionic Footbath sessions. There is a reaction between
the toxins and particles in the water, the salt added
to the water, the metals in the array, and the acidity
or alkalinity of the person being bathed. All of these
combine to produce colour, whether or not feet are in
the water. The basic colour produced by these reactions
caries from one geographic area to another.
It is important to understand that the water will change
colour even if the unit is operating without feet in
the water. The basic colour change is a result of the
reaction between all of the variables in the water and
the array, as discussed above. This colour change will
vary in accordance with the toxic and chemical components
of the water and air given a particular geographical
