What is an Ionic Foot Detox?

The human body is electric because our cells are electric.   Disorders and diseases of the body have vibrational frequencies  that are incompatible with healthy cells; thus, they disrupt the  cells' natural oscillation and polarity. This disruption creates  imbalance and chaos within each affected cell.  When cells are in  an imbalanced state, they are unable to facilitate the body's  functions needed for healing, including ridding itself of heavy  metals, parasites and other toxins.  But when cells are fully  charged, they have more oxygen and are able to experience  electrical balance, which results in a feeling of a healthy  attitude, vitality, well-being, and enables the body to heal  itself.  

In a Lectro Chi Ionic foot detox low-voltage electrical currents are applied to the water, via surgical grade stainless steel plates, to create positive and negative ions. The negative ions are then purported to enter the body through osmosis to subsequently attack toxins.  Some people will say that the change in water color is only due to the iron oxidation of the metal and salt water.  However, in the pictures at the top of the page you can see the difference in water color where a 30 min session was run with no human contact and then the other picture shows a 30 min session with feet in the water.   Clearly there is a HUGE difference!  I have also found the water to be different from person to person, so clearly it's having an affect on the body.

How does it work?

Your feet are placed into a tub of warm, filtered water with a small amount of dead salts.  Low-voltage electrical currents are applied to the water, via surgical grade stainless steel plates, to create positive and negative ions. The negative ions are then purported to enter the body through osmosis to subsequently attack toxins which are released through the 2000 pores you have on the bottom of each foot.  During this time you relax in a quiet soothing environment for 40 min .  For additional lymphatic support you can also receive a biofeedback session for lymphatic drainage and additional detoxification. 

Some will say that these foot detox's do not work and the that the change in water color is purely due to iron oxidation from the metal in the salt water.  For this reason I have put pictures at the top of the page showing first that we start with clear, filtered water, the next picture shows a 30 min session with no human contact with the water.  The next picture shows a 30 min session with a clients feet in the water.  You can see for yourself the difference!  And the water is always different from person to person.

Will I feel anything?

Results vary from person to person.  I have clients who have had tried other types of foot detox machines and have commented that the Lectro Chi works much faster and they can actually feel a slight vibration or pulsing in their lower legs.  Even for those who don't have a direct sensation during the session, they do notice a shift in other ways following the session, whether it's increased energy, decrease in aches or pain or the reduction of oncoming cold or flu symptoms, the response is always a positive one.

How often should I do a foot detox?

This depends on your individual health needs.  If you are in a health crisis, battling a serious illness then it's recommended to have one 3-4 times a week for 2 weeks to 30 days then go reduce sessions to 1-2 times a week and eventually once a month.   If you feel the onset of a cold or flu or have just been exposed to illness (like cold and flu season) then it's always good to get a foot detox to help the body's immune function and avoid illness or lessen the effects and greatly reduce the down time from colds and flu.  For the average person without any major illness, once a month is a great way to support the body's immune system and keep feeling your best.
