DR DETOX FOOT SPA – HOME UNIT Dr Detox Foot Spa Treatment to use at home or for a therapist. The Ion Cleanse machine from Dr Detox is a system which generates and emits a stream of positive and negative Ions. supporting the bodys natural equilibrium. Dr Detox is a painfree, rapid and effective way to detox the body without having to take expensive tablets or spend weeks drinking nothing but juices. Simply by using our Dr Detox, you will be able to detox once a week for six weeks then once a month for three months then start again with the six week programe and enjoy detoxing in the privacy of your own home! Dr Detox is a non-invasive therapy, which re-energises the body and helps support the body to detoxify naturally, helping restore your natural equilibrium and well being. During a foot detox spa treatment the Ion Cleanse unit delivers a small amount of low level, electrical current into the array (electrode), which results in a reaction between the array, the water and the and increase the ionisation effect), to generate positively and negatively charged ions. When the feet are placed in the water the interaction of the positive and negative ions re-energises, re-vitalises and supports the body’s innate ability to re-balance and achieve a higher state of well being. How does it work?
In a healthy person, your body should have 80% negative electricity (usually known as negative ions) and 20% positive electricity (positive ions). Step 1 The array is placed into a basin of clean water with your feet. Step 2 To increase water conductivity and improve the ionization effect. Step 3 The Ion Cleanse delivers positive and negative current intermittently into the array. Step 4 The array generates a stream of positive and negative ions. Step 5 Relax and enjoy a soothing 30-minute treatment. Why does the water look & smell bad? During the treatment you will notice progressive change in the colour of the water. This is perfectly normal and happens mostly due to electrolytic reaction between metallic array and saline solution (i.e. salty water). You may also see some deposits floating in the water. Again, this is perfectly normal and can be caused by many different factors, suchas water source remnants of dead skin cells on your feet.

These claims range from helping with insomnia to curing serious diseases like heart disease or cancer. The naysayers claim that the foot detox spa is a fraud and has no basis in science. As I see it reality usually is somewhere in the middle and the foot detox spa is no different. Detox system produces positive and negative ions, that “resonate through the body and stimulates the cells within it”, claiming that this ‘rebalances’ cellular energy, allowing efficient performance and excretion of toxins that have accumulated within the tissues and that 20 – 35 minutes of usage every second or third day causes toxins from throughout the body to be excreted. Detox involves soaking an individual’s feet in a salt bath through which an electrical current is passed. The water turns brown as current is applied; the device is typically promoted with the claim that the brown discoloration represents “toxins” extracted from the body. The device is marketed under a wide variety of names. The ion-cleanse process generates a stream of positive and negative ions (charged atoms), which attract and attach themselves to oppositely charged toxic particles and draws them out of the body through the skin. Each session takes about 30 minutes.It is an external detoxification method, which removes toxins through your feet. The body detoxifies while you are comfortably seated with y our feet placed in a container of warm water. This is a very efficient way to remove toxic accumulations regardless of where they are located in the body The detox foot spa is also known as the ionic cleanse aqua chi, ion foot bath and others. In a typical session the patient places their feet in warm salt water and an electrical array is turned on creating electrolysis in the water. This electrolysis causes an electro-magnetic field in the water which pulls toxins and heavy metals into the water through the sweat glands in the feet. During the session, the water changes color, bubbles and little chunky floaters appear. The foot bath is usually finished by washing the feet and a relaxation foot massage is performed using a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral cream.
In general, people report feeling more energized, lighter, more mental focus, and an improved mood. Many patients also report dramatic improvements in sleep. Some report improvements in serious health concerns. But is it a fraud? Is it another example of the placebo effect? Or are there legitimate health benefits to this therapy? Lets begin with the color of the water. Many distributors and marketers of these devices claim that the water color indicates where in the body the toxins have been drawn from. If it is one color it is coming from your pancreas if it is another it is your liver. This kind of analysis has no basis in science. There is no scientific way (that I know of) of determining where the toxins are coming from by the colour of the water. In fact, the water will change colour if no feet are present during a session. Also, I have seen youtube videos of foot spa sessions with a carrot or a piece of cellery in the water. The person making the video claimed that he had proved that the carrot has a liver based on the colour of the water! The colour of the water is meaningless. The content of the water is what counts. And a laboratory analysis of the water is the only way to determine the content. Now the question is: What about heavy metals? If the detox foot spa draws heavy metals out of the body then there should be metal in the water. But could it be the metal array itself that is releasing the metal particles into the water? Maybe. At least two marketers or distributors of detox foot spas have run lab analysis comparing sessions with no feet to four or five different sessions with feet from different subjects. In both studies the laboratory results indicated significantly more heavy metal content in the test subjects relative to the control session. Some subjects had dramatically increased levels. So, insofar as we can trust the results of these studies, it appears that the detox foot spa does help with heavy metal detoxification. I have had a few sessions in the foot detox spa and every time I sleep better and feel more relaxed. I have observed many people use the treatment and almost all of them have reported a positive experience with improvements in their health and well being. A few have experienced major improvements. How one can identify your kidney in the water based on the colour is a mystery to me but one thing is sure. If you enjoy the session and feel better as a result it certainly is worth the time and money spent. So if you decide to try it, relax and enjoy the experience!
