We are living in the most polluted environment in Earth’s known history. Our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants from food, water, and air. Environmental toxins include: heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminum, and cadmium, chlorine, pesticides, PCBs, mold and fungal toxins, dioxins, chloroform, phtalates etc. The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illness are caused by toxins and pollutants in our bodies. Toxins create havoc within our bodies by mimicking hormones in our body, occupy cell receptor sites and block proper hormone utilization. Toxins interfere with delivering oxygen and other nutrients that keep cells functioning at their best creating an acidic environment in the body and diseases thrive in an acidic environment.
Foot detoxes make the body’s pH more ALKALINE. An ionic detox, helps to facilitate the alkalization process through the process of ionization, which removes “free radicals” from the body. Through an electrical current and combination with water and salt positive and negative ions are generated. These ions neutralize charge particles within the body and are pulled out via the skin through osmosis and transfusion. These effects are similar to grounding in nature, however magnified many times over. It is important to note the water changes color naturally because of the chemical reaction between the electricity and the salt water, not because of toxins.
The human body is inbuilt with methods of detoxification through the skin, liver, colon, lymphatics, lungs, and kidneys. The skin releases water soluble toxins through sweat. The liver is the body’s chief detoxifier and processes and removes toxins from the blood. The large intestine eliminates solid wastes. The lungs remove metabolic wastes, such as carbon dioxide, from the blood, and expel them through the breath. While our bodies detoxify naturally and continuously and overburden of toxins can make the detoxification processes sluggish and these toxins are trapped within the body where they disrupt natural metabolic processes from occurring. Ionic foot baths aid in this detoxification process and jump start the natural process of detoxification. Some other common ways of detoxification also include intermittent fasting, colonic hydrotherapy/enemas, grounding and use of saunas.
