Ionic Detox

IonicDetox Therapy

What is an ionic foot bath? An ionic foot bath is a machine used to make the body more alkaline by detoxifying it. The body’s alkaline pH level should be 7.35 to 7.45, anything lower is acidic and increases the chance of illness because diseases thrive in acidic environments. By using an ionic foot bath, these toxins and impurities will be drawn out from the feet. The process is similar to osmosis – positive hydrogens in the water will attract and draw out negatively charged toxins. 

 The change is caused by the chemical reaction between the electricity and the salt in the water.

Aside from the electrolysis and salt reaction, there is also the corrosion of the metals in the ionic foot bath which happens every time you use it.

Oils coming from the sebaceous glands on the skin also causes a reaction and adds to the water discoloration.

If the color of the water does not have anything to do with the detoxification process, where does the detoxification come from? Ionic Foot Bath Benefits

Balances the body’s pH levels. This is the main benefit of the ionic foot bath. The pH scale is from 0 – very acidic, to 14 – very alkaline.

An acidic pH is a conducive environment for diseases so a balanced pH at 7.35 to 7.45 helps the body to stabilize the immune system making it harder for diseases and illness to develop.

Cleanses the body of heavy metals. Exposure to various toxic materials in the food and drink we take, the air we breathe, the cosmetics and products we use, and the environment we live in has led to heavy metals accumulating and poisoning our bodies.

Use of the ionic foot bath lowers and continuously removes the heavy metals in the body which only leads to improved health.

Boosts the mood, relieves stress. A body that is optimized to function at full capacity will lessen worry and anxiety. This, in turn, improves the outlook and mood of a person which in turn helps you to cope with stress.

A body in a relaxed state does not need to release too much cortisol (the stress hormone). Cortisol isn’t bad in small doses but prolonged elevated cortisol levels suppress the immune system, raises blood sugar levels, and increases the risk for hypertension and depression.

Reduction in inflammation. Inflammation is part of the body’s immune response. It is a signal your body is sending that it is fighting an illness or infection.

Reduced inflammation means your body does not have many infections to protect you from and that your immunity is not compromised.

Enhancing the body’s internal detoxifying system. Your body has a built-in detox system, cleaning it of wastes and byproducts through the liver, the kidneys, and the sweat glands.

When your pH levels are not balanced, your natural detox may not be working at its peak level or is working overtime.

By using the ionic foot bath you boost the body’s detoxification system. This is not a one-time session but a complement to other modalities of healing the body if you are battling an illness or trying to live healthier

    Mary W.
  • "I have three bulging disc's in my lower back, one of which is pressing against a nerve. Due to being in so much pain I have put a lot more pressure and such on my right foot as well. Doctors have given me medication that doesn't touch the pain, but Dr. Draper and Dr. Gary as most of his patients lovingly call him will reduce my pain level more than half in one visit. I can't Recommend this place enough."
