Ionic Foot Detox
An ionic foot detox machine is a modern energy therapy device which balances the body’s natural energy system. By introducing a high level of negative ions into the water of foot bath, the feet, utilizing principles of reflexology and the science of ionization and osmosis, create a positive cellular environment and enable the body’s natural detoxification processes to function at their peak.
As part of our usual body functionality we naturally detoxify every day. Eliminating toxins and waste via our kidneys, liver, colon, lymph glands, lungs and skin. Toxins can be found in our everyday environment; tobacco, alcohol, food additives, drugs and anesthetics’, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial pollutants. We need our body to function optimally and rid our systems of these toxins as they are harmful waste products which attack our immune system and can cause a wide variety of side effects, detoxification may at some point be suggested as an alternative to the prevention of immune deficiency diseases.
Our body is a very complex piece of engineering but in its simplest form is a collection of cells and tissue. Cells consist of electrical charges and ideally contain an even proportion of positive and negative ions. In this ‘ideal’ state we are perfectly balanced and our body functions by removing toxins and absorbing nutrients from food, water and oxygen.
When the body experiences any form of trauma, which can be caused by poor diet, ill health or injury the cells become more positively charged and consequently do not work as effectively and the process of storing toxins begins.
Even a lack of exercise promotes toxic build up as our cells are insufficiently oxidized. Therefore stagnation of our natural detoxification process occurs.
Our ideal environment would be harmonious, stress and pollution free. We would all benefit from a good, natural balanced diet, with food containing no additives or have been processed in any way.
