How does a Detox Bath work?

It is well known the health benefits of negative ions. When water is ionized and divided into H+ and OH-ions (and sometimes H3O+ and H2O2 ions), these ions can enter the body through the feet's 4,000 large pores. Then the ions are carried throughout the body by the circulatory and lymphatic systems. These ions in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body neutralize opposite charged toxins. All the organs of the body can thus be energized and stimulated for optimal functioning. The body then removes these toxins by its normal urination, defecation and sweating processes.

Ionic Foot Detox Bath

Ionic Detox Baths are Popular because they:

Remove toxins, free radicals and body waste products that may cause health problems (Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, Aug. ' 04 study found a significant deposition of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic diseases.) 

Chelate toxic metals Increases pH levels. Around 95 percent of people experience an acidity state in which their blood pH is lower than 7.45, indicating an excess of hydrogen ions. This makes an ideal breeding ground for worms, parasites, microorganisms and other criteria that reduce the functioning of the body and cause illness. 

A study in 2008 by the Research Strategies Center (, where 31 participants were subjected to an ionic detox twice a week for 12 weeks. Before and after the 12 weeks,  the amounts of aluminum and arsenic in their blood were measured. The average level of blood aluminum dropped from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb by 46 percent. The average level of blood arsenic dropped from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb by 24 percent.

 A study conducted by Doctor's Data in St. Charles, IL in 2002 showed an average increase in toxic metals in the foot basin  from nine independent ionic detox foot bath sessions. Below is a list of metals who's concentration increased:

 Metal                                        Percentage Increase

Copper                                                 905%

Aluminum                                           339%

Lead                                                     233%

Iron                                                      174%

Manganese                                       140%

Antimony                                           128%

Cadmium                                            119%
