As part of a detoxification program a warm, ionic foot bath may be beneficial. The ionic detox is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker and open sores or lesions on the feet. People with Diabetes Type I should use this technology with precaution. A non-ionic footbath is recommended in those cases.
The foot bath is simple, painless gentle and safe. The ionic footbath uses charged particles called ions to create an ionic field which react with skin. This results in the water in the bath to change color. The color varies in different individuals. The mechanism behind the color change is debated. Circulation increases which eases the body’s ability to mobilize toxins. Other benefits include improved relaxation, energy levels and sleep.
