How the Ionic Footbath Works
According to Dr. Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, acid
wastes attack joints, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands causing minor
to major dysfunction. He asserts that 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.
In today’s times we live in a very toxic environment. The pollution in
the air, the chemicals in our food, the water we drink and even the
clothes we wear. At any given moment you may be exposed to toxins
and heavy metals. These toxins accumulate in the body and can be
stored in your fat cells, which tend to want to hang on to them.
A good way to release toxic build up in your body is to sweat such as in
a sauna or hot bath. But for most busy people, they do not have the
time to spend hours in the sauna for the best results. Plus that may be a
bit too uncomfortable and when used for detoxification should be
supervised by a licensed practitioner.
There is an easy alternative more and more people are finding great
success with to rid your body of these unwanted toxins. That is the use
of ionic detox footbaths. This is not your ordinary footbath.
Ionic Detox footbaths work by sending a small current that goes in a
circuit through the body and generates positively charged ions. The
high concentration of the ion field attaches to the negatively charged
toxins neutralizing them and the body is then able to discard them
through the approximate 2000 pores that are on the bottom of your
feet. You can then experience the correct acid-alkaline ph balance as
nature intended. It’s painless and takes about 30 minutes. Even
children ages 4 and up can safely use it. (supervised of course)
People who should not use this footbath are people with pace makers or
who have organ transplants or expectant or nursing mothers.
Most Americans are in somewhat of an acid state. Our bodies are not in
the natural ph balance that it should be. The result is that you are now
left open to various diseases. A body that is in its natural alkaline-acid
ph balance will be able to fight off the daily onslaught the body
receives. This is a very important activity, especially if you are
recovering from illness or post surgery!
The body has its own electrical field and if is too positively charged you
are in an acid state. You can find out your own ph balance by going to
your local health food store or drug store and purchase test strips. They
are easy to use and show you in seconds if you are acid or alkaline.
