Eliminating toxins is the first step in giving the body a chance to heal itself.
Detoxification is fundamental to any health building program and detoxifying through the feet is ideal. There are over 360 acupuncture points on the body with more than 60 on the soles of the feet. Acupuncture points and reflexology points reflect the organs and other areas of the body which make the feet ideal for detoxification.
Today our toxic exposure is at an all time high and toxins are one of the primary causes of degenerative diseases in people today such as Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Kidney issues, Autism and Muscular Dystrophy.
Where do Toxins come from?
Our foods are sprayed with pesticides, our water has chlorine and fluoride the air we breathe is polluted, our cleaning supplies, soaps, shampoos and detergents are loaded with chemicals and many have sodium laurel sulfate, a carcinogen. Our mercury fillings, lead, arsenic, aluminum, vaccinations, paints and other home products like plastics used in the microwave, tobacco, drugs and more all contribute to more toxins in our bodies that lead todisease, and allergies, with side effects like swelling, rashes, insomnia, headaches, fatigue and pain. "The EPA reports that in 2002 24,379 US facilities released 4.7 billion pounds of toxins into the atmosphere. 72 million pounds were known carcinogens. Depending on your size you inhale 3,000 to 8,000 gallons of air each day."
Toxins that enter the body turn to acid, which leads to acidosis and disease.
Beginning Symptoms of Acidosis include: fatigue, headaches, bloating, acne, constipation, food allergies, panic attacks, slow circulation and joint pain. Intermediate symptoms of acidosis include: asthma, bronchitis, insomnia, psoriasis, fungus, depression, cold sores. Advanced symptoms of acidosis include: cancer, fibromyalgia, weight gain, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, lupus, leukemia, heart disease and migraines. According to Dr. Robert O. Young's book, "Sick and Tired", the New Biology , most simply stated, is that the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all disease. Dr. Young has found that when the body is in healthy alkaline balance, germs are unable to get a foothold. Low PH Balance leads to acidosis 7.0 - 7.4 ph = optimum health and energy 6.8 ph = beginning of metabolic acidosis 6.4 ph = impaired digestion, hard to lose weight 6.0 ph = 10 times less oxygen to the cells 5.5 ph = extreme acidosis, cancer and degenerative disease 5.0 ph = 100 times less oxygen to the cells and life threatening (You can test and monitor your ph balance with litmus paper) Cancer, candida, yeast, mold, fungus, viruses, bacteria and parasitescannot survive in a ph of 7.0 or above.
How the IonCleanse® Ion Treatment Works
AC electricity is converted to low power DC electricity which flows through a patented electrode system that sits in the footbath. The electricity and the metal combine to split the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. These ions travel through the body, neutralize oppositely charged particles and through powerful osmotic pressure pull those neutralized particles out of the body through whatever skin surface is in contact with the water. An ion is a charged atom that has gained or lost an electron which creates a magnetic field capable of attaching to and neutralizing oppositely charged particles.
These neutralized particles are extracted from the body through the process called osmosis. Osmosis is a scientific term that is used to describe the movement of particles through a membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration. In this case, the higher concentration refers to the ion field that is set up by placing the array into the water while running the unit. The array is placed into the water alongside the hands, feet, or body while the power supply delivers a low level direct current to the array. This causes the metals within the array in combination with water and salt to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating oxygen and hydrogen in the water.
