Ionic Detox Foot Bath

My parents have had an Ionic Detox Foot Bath for 2-3 years now. They try to give themselves a detox foot bath at least once a week, and on the days that they do one (40 minutes) my mom says she feels lighter in the feet and happier in the mood. Dad isn't quite so analytic but his Parkinson's tremors do seem to be lighter on the day and even the following day that he takes a foot bath. The only problem with giving him a foot bath is that he has to get up quite early in the morning before he starts taking his schedules medicines for the day in order that the foot bath won't detox/remove the necessary drugs from his system. He needs those drugs, sad to say. And after taking a foot bath, he's quite exhausted and sleeps for about 2 hours, but when he wakes up, he's more alert than usual.

I've taken the foot baths too when I'm at home, and also feel better - like my mom, lighter in the foot but in general more alert. It's rather disgusting the amount of detoxing that comes from the feet. To do the detox, of course you need the ionic detoxer, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt to activate the tub of warm water, an electrolyte drink (because of candida I can't do the frequently used drinks so fresh squeeze a lemon in a quart of water) to drink throughout the detox in order to keep electrolytes in the body and to stay properly hydrated, a 40-minutes timer, and a book to read! More specific directions are in the following picture:

The ionic detoxer is to be used a maximum of 45 minutes as it not only pulls toxins out of the body but much needed minerals and electrolytes. 45 minutes max!

This last picture showed a lot of black, brown and orange particles which, according to the printout, suggest that I am detoxifying from my liver (heavily) and from my joints. There's also a bit of white foam although I have to say it's rather minimal compared to last summer! The white foam suggests detoxing from my lymphatic system. When the water is poured down the toilet (it's toxic so not to be poured into a sink), white particles or red flecks or black flecks can be seen which reflect detoxing from other body areas - refer to chart below for more clarity.


  1. ah! i have been curious about this too! that's so wonderful your parents have this so you can potentially use it when you see them!

  2. The lady who sold this to us runs her own health food store/center and told us about a little old man who would faithfully bring his wife every other day for this thereapy. (BTW, this cleansing is only recommended to be used a couple times a week b/c it strips the electrolytes as well as the toxins). The little wife never talked, but after I think it was 3-4 weeks of detoxing with the foot bath, she started to talk! I don't much care for testimonials, but when your friends tell you something they've witnessed, then things start getting credible!

  3. There are some who are still uncertain about the efficiency of an ionic detox foot. But as what you have noticed these days, it’s really growing in popularity. More and more people are considering it as one of the effective ways to get rid of body toxins. I personally love it, because after the foot bath, I always have a high energy level and come out feeling relieved from pain and discomfort.

  4. On days when I used this I felt very light afterwards, and had an extra bounce in my step. My dad with Parkinson's also benefitted a lot, but after the detox session, he was wiped out and had to take a nap. I think it messed with his electrolytes more than other people, and also he's very sensitive to vibrations, which there are low-key vibrations in the water. After waking from his nap though and drinking 2-3 packages of Emergen-C, an electrolyte mix, the rest of the day was great for him!

  5. Toxicity is rampant in our modern world. We are surrounded by toxic chemicals and pollutants. Having Detox Foot Bath at your home will really help a lot in detoxification.
