Ionic Detox

What is Ionic detox?

An ionic detox foot bath is a therapy that uses negative ions to cleanse the body of toxins.

Detoxification is the process of ridding the body of toxic substances like heavy metals, mould, yeast, fungi, pesticides, preservatives, and other chemicals. The liver, kidneys, and even the skin carry out this procedure naturally in the human body.

However, the body’s normal detoxification process is hampered when it is overloaded with toxins. An ionic foot detox detoxifies your body and helps improve your overall health. It works by assisting your feet in the removal of pollutants from your body.

How Ionic Detox Works

An ionic detox foot bath is truly quite easy to do. We begin by adding tepid water to a bathtub. Warm water is seasoned with salt to increase conductivity. The arrangement is then placed inside the container to generate a weak electrical current.

Depending on the parameters we select, this direct current splits the water into positively charged hydrogen ions and oxygen gas or negatively charged hydroxide ions and hydrogen gas.

The water’s colour changes by the conclusion of the session. The metal plates in the array oxidise, and the ions interact with water solutes to alter the colour of the water.

Because the electrical current truly travels throughout the body and promotes long-lasting detoxification effects, an ionic foot detox is more effective than other foot detoxification techniques. Similar advantages for relaxation are provided by other modalities, but they have short-lived impacts and can only remove toxins from the skin’s surface.

Ionic Detox Treatment Procedure

An ionic detox foot bath typically lasts around 30 minutes.

The patient might experience a small tingling sensation in their feet when the machine is first turned on. This is so that the current can flow through our bodies, which are composed of electrolytes and water. This current produces a tingling feeling while acting as a catalyst to enhance the body’s natural detoxification processes.

Very rarely do side effects occur. However, some patients might feel a little queasy or mildly nauseated after their treatment. To be safe, you should always disclose to your doctor about any medical conditions you may have and any medications you are taking. It is not recommended for patients with diabetes or open wounds on their feet to take a detox footbath.
