An Insight Into Ionic Foot Detox
Ionic foot detox is a relatively new concept in the area of natural cleansing and detoxification. The ionic machine is a therapy device, which balances the body’s energy systems. The machine releases several negative ions in the foot bath water.
The negative ions in turn create a positive cellular environment and enable the body to get rid of all the toxins in the body through a process of osmosis, which helps to detoxify the body. It has been purported that regular foot detox sessions can get the body rid of environmental toxins that are spoiling the internal functioning of the body and affecting its biological processes.
The procedure is based on the concept that by placing your feet in a 1.5-volt battery charged water, excretory elements like butyric acid, lactic acid and uric acid will leave your body, leaving you feeling more youthful and energized.
The ionic foot bath consists of a small white coloured bath, which is filled with salt water, and your feet are placed inside the water. The bath consists of a metal array. This array is attached to a machine, which acts like a transformer, carrying the energy from the wall socket and converting it into a lower charge. Another wire, which extends from the transformer, is attached to the patient’s wrist. This completes its electric circuit. The person soaks his/her feet in the water for about 30 minutes during which a 1.5-volt current courses through his/her body.
Through a process of ionization, the foot bath gives out soothing and calming effects by removing all the negative elements from the body. People have reported feeling the same effects as walking barefoot by the ocean side. The biochemical energy of the body is balanced out. It is said that the ionic foot detox balances the chi of the body. The amount of toxins eliminated through the foot bath are not much but are enough to create marginal differences in your overall energy levels and well being.
A very common misconception surrounding the ionic foot spa is the colour of the bath water changing as you soak your feet. People selling these machines claim that the water turns a murky brown and this is an indication of the toxins leaving your body. However, this is not true. The change in colour can be attributed to the entire process of electrolysis, which causes the water to change its colour.

People using this foot bath on a regular basis have reported higher energy levels. The foot spa helps to reduce overall fatigue in the body. It is also said to diminish and reduce joint pain and gives rise to a stronger and fitter immune system. The process of ionization also helps to improve the body’s circulation, thus promoting relaxation and well-being. Many people have stated that the ionic foot spa is tantamount to quackery and is not as effective as it is purported to be. There is still a lot of controversy surrounding the product.
