Ion Chi Foot Detox Bath
Wash Toxins Away
The soles of the feet and armpits are two of the body's discharge pathways for toxins (hence the odor). The use of antiperspirant blocks one of these pathways, and over time can result in an accumulation of chemicals in the body. The feet, being the largest pathway of the body, have been used for centuries to eliminate toxins.
Water, metal and salt will combine to produce a light water color change, as well as objects in the water even without feet being submerged. The IonChi™ Foot Detoxification Spa neutralizes toxins in the water the same way it neutralizes toxins in the body. Remember, the body itself has high water content, and this is where toxins become isolated.
As a general rule, depending on geographical location, about 20 to 40% of what you see in the water after a foot bath comes from regional toxins in the water, and the remaining 60 to 80 % comes from the client's body. Color charts are helpful for estimating what toxins are being pulled from the body, but it is important to remember that there is a great deal happening that is invisible to the eye.
How many sessions do I need?
Initially, 6–8 sessions are recommended – once or twice a week. This allows your body to completely purge the accumulated toxins.
Maximum Frequency = Adults under 50, once every other day for two weeks then two weeks off.
Adults 50 and over, once every three days for two weeks then two weeks off.
A monthly or bi-monthly maintenance program is recommended to ensure that toxins do not re-accumulate due to absorption from environmental exposure. The appropriate number of sessions will be determined by your body – your feeling of well-being – your energy levels.
Can anyone use the system?
If an individual has been quite sick, we recommend that he or she should go through the process at a slower pace. A schedule of once a week or every other week would be advisable, as the process of detoxification continues even after the session has formally ended.
Drinking more water is extremely beneficial and we encourage you to drink more during and after your session (and always!). (Dehydration – the lack of enough water in your body – is one of the common denominators of all diseases!) Clients should be properly hydrated prior to each ionic body detoxification foot bath session
An ionic body detox footbath should NOT be used by:
-Children under age 15.
-Persons with a Pacemaker or any other battery-operated or electrical implant.
-Person who is on heartbeat regulating medication.
-Pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers.
-Organ transplant recipients.
-Persons having an organ removed, especially the colon.

IMPORTANT… users should also be aware of the following:
Persons should not wear metal, use a computer or cellular phone during an ionic detox footbath.
Persons with low blood sugar should eat before using the ionic body detox foot bath.
Though not dangerous, persons having a metal joint implant may find exposure to the electromagnetic field generated by the ionic body detox foot bath to be uncomfortable. If this should occur please inform the technician and the treatment will be stopped.
Persons taking prescription medication should schedule their treatments so they can take their meds after their sessions.
Because an ionic body detox foot spa is designed to aid the body in eliminating toxins that the kidney and liver cannot eliminate on their own, as a general rule, it may not be used by persons on dialysis or by those diagnosed with diabetes or congestive heart failure. However, persons with these conditions, or any other medical condition, should consult their physician prior to implementing the ionic body detox foot spa as part of their wellness program.
In addition to toxins being pulled out bloodstream by osmosis and diffusion during the ionic body detox foot spa session, valuable electrolytes (calcium, potassium, sodium, and magnesium) can also be purged from the body. To safeguard against this possibility, clients are encouraged to take a multivitamin supplement that provides the aforementioned minerals, as well as fatty acids and vitamin C. We recommend replacing electrolytes and minerals with natural food and/or mineral sources.
