Detoxification in this manner has origins stemming back 5000 years to the Eastern Indian traditions of Ayur Vedic medicine. This system of healing used concentrated sea salt baths to draw out impurities in the body. This type of therapy was also practiced in Roman times in conjunction with the use of public baths. In both cases, impurities were drawn away from the body; from lower concentrations (in the body) to higher concentrations (in terms of salt) in the surrounding water, through both osmosis and diffusion.
The use of ionization; where water (in the confines of a foot bath) is charged with both positive and negative ions (acting then in a similar way to concentrated salt in water) is a new idea, but it is founded on the same historical principle. However, the results of using ionization are much more dramatic and noted in shorter periods of time.
In Europe, more and more homeopaths are now using Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification to detoxify patients as a precursor to homeopathic therapy. The premise is that a body once detoxified is now younger (in function) and thereby more responsive to homeopathic therapy. The homeopathic treatment of certain chronic states; conditions stemming from toxic build-up in the body, have been enhanced dramatically both in terms of the time it takes to heal and the extent in which healing occurs.
Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification has many therapeutic applications. This type of therapy can be used both:
As a precursor to the treatment of specific conditions that are connected to toxic congestion in the body, for example:
Other conditions enhanced through Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification include:
A weakened immunity...
Complications related to exposure to cigarette smoke...
Complications related to exposure to environmental pesticides and pollutants...
Complications related to exposure to industrial toxins, contaminants and heavy metal toxicity...
How An Ionic Foot Bath Actually Works...
Through a process called electrolysis, the water in an Ionic Foot Bath (in combination with added sea salt) is charged into positive and negative ions. Toxins are also charged particles and as they circulate through the blood in the region of the foot, they are then naturally drawn to their opposite charge in the water that the foot is submersed in. Initiated through the attraction of opposite charges and facilitated through both osmosis and diffusion, any negatively charged toxins are drawn to positively charged ions in the water and any positively charge toxins are drawn out into the water by negatively charged ions. In the end these toxins are then neutralized in the water of the foot bath. What you see with a change in colour to the water in the foot bath relates in a visual way to accumulated toxins from the body being released from the body into this bath.
What One Sees...
What’s really interesting is what one observes after experiencing a series of Ionic Foot Baths! With continued sessions one will start noticing that the water in the foot bath becomes less discoloured and remains more like clear water. This is a sign of being cleansed from accumulated toxic build-up in the body. Digital photographs of the water of the Ionic Foot Bath are taken after each session, so one can see visually the dramatic changes that are occurring in the water of the foot bath; in that it is now becoming more clear and less polluted with toxins (or particulate) from the body. Distilled water (pure water) is used as the water medium in the Ionic Foot Bath, void of any other toxins, metals, impurities etc. as often found in “regular” tap water. This enables one to see visually what truly presents in the water in terms of released toxins from the body following an Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification. The results are amazing! Have a look...
Specific water discolouration in the Ionic Foot Bath signifies specific organ/tissue congestion, as shown in the following chart:
Heavy Metals (Cadmium / Cobalt / Lead / Tin / Vanadium)

Foot Bath Detox - How does it work?
Our detox foot bath uses brass and stainless steel electrodes in water to cleanse, balance, and enhance the bio-energy [the vital energy force present in the breath of bodily fluids]. This energy is the electro-magnetic force that is stored within the body and utilized by our cells. Chinese medicine refers to this energy as the "chi.” The complex energy fields permeate and realign the body's energy field while improving oxygen levels. While the ionic detox foot bath is widely used to increase energy [both physical and mental energy], vitality, and stamina, at the same time, it also purges [detoxifies] the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign material trapped in the skin layers that have clogged up the body's systems of elimination. Its internal cleansing includes parasite cleansing and liver detoxification, which results in less body fluid retention, reduced inflammation, improved memory, greater bladder control, a more balanced pH, a stronger immune system, and significant pain relief, including headaches, gout, and arthritis pain.
As believed in Reflexology, each foot is actually a channel, a conduit, through which your body attempts to cleanse itself of toxic wastes and heavy metals that are building up in many parts of your body. During the foot bath, you will actually see the cleansing process take place as the water interacts with a compound electric current and magnetic field structure. This body cleansing process results in the correct frequency required for cells to return to a healthy state and to release waste that has been bonded to them over the years. This detoxification therapeutic procedure also enhances the effects of other therapies. This unit is among the best detox products available.
What happens during a therapeutic ion cleansing detox foot bath, and how long does it take?
You immerse your feet in warm water. The machine is set to the correct settings and ionization levels.
Then you sit back and relax for 20-35 minutes while the machine completes its cycle. You'll see the excreted toxins, including parasites, in the water. The water will change color and consistency from orange, brown through to black -- due to the release of toxic substances through the 2000 pores on the sole of each foot. There may be lymphatic fat or mucous floating on the water. Each therapeutic session lasts about 20-35 minutes and should be taken every 2-3 days until the water is finally clear. The clear water will indicate that the body is clear of toxins at that time. Detoxification is usually complete within 5 -7 procedures over the course of 2-3 weeks. Note: Depending on your geographical region, the water may not change colors, but the same detoxification effects still occur. What is the significance of color? Believe it or not, it is important to eat a variety of colorful foods in order to assure balanced chemistry. Every color is a chemical and has a chemical value. Chemical components of foods contribute to their acid-alkaline balance. As a general rule, Green Foods nourish the immune system, especially the liver and gall bladder. Red Foods nourish the endocrine system, including the pituitary gland, as well as the heart and small intestines. Orange Foods nourish the joints. Yellow Foodsnourish the digestive system, including the spleen, stomach, and pancreas. White Foods nourish the respiratory system, namely the lungs, but also the large intestines, lymphatic system, and skin. Black Foods nourish the circulatory system, kidneys, and bladder.By the same token, when the water is changing colors, each color represents the part of the body that is being detoxified. One of the most visual effects is the discoloration of the water, but while the color changes in the water can be dramatic, it is not the most important factor and one must be careful about making any judgments based only on the water color.
What healing benefits can be gained from detoxifying your cells with the Aqua Chi Body Purge bio cleanse foot bath?
The human body is electric because our cells are electric. Disorders and diseases of the body have vibrational frequencies that are incompatible with healthy cells; thus, they disrupt the cells' natural oscillation and polarity. This disruption creates imbalance and chaos within each affected cell. When cells are in an imbalanced state, they are unable to facilitate the body's functions needed for healing, including ridding itself of heavy metals, parasites, and other toxins. But when cells are fully charged, they have more oxygen and are able to experience electrical balance, which results in a feeling of a healthy attitude, vitality, well being, and the enabling of the body to heal itself. This balance increases our sense of awareness and our sense of the mind/body/spirit connection. Darkfield studies have shown that the machine significantly improves oxygen levels.
Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs, along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions. Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons [Free radicals are unpaired electrons]. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through feet provides a full body purge of all vital organs, resulting in reduced menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne, sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, vaginal dryness, wrinkles, candida and yeast infections. The internal cleansing also results in faster disease healing and injury recovery.
Water has an almost perfect balance of positive and negative ions. Since the body is composed of about 70% water, its ability to interact with water is very high. When you immerse a body mass into water, the vibrational frequency of the water will affect the vibrational frequency of the body due to the interaction of the magnetic and electrical fields. Consequently, the Aqua Chi Detoxification Foot Spa unit is one of the best detox products. It is an exceptionally wonderful and natural healing tool. It is painless, with no drugs, and no harmful side effects. (Excerpt from - Dr A. J. Adams N.D. wbpg)
