Ionic Foot Therapy

With air pollution, pesticides that are in our food and chemicals in our products we are accosted with toxins. As we age, these toxins tend to accumulate in the body, often causing genome destabilization and sometimes a catastrophic breakdown of tissue homeostasis. When it comes to a complete body detoxification, an ionic foot detox seems to be one of the better options, as it produces negative ion generation through the ionization of water in a basin, enabling the body to heal itself.

Reflexology teaches us that our feet are outlets through which the body attempts to cleanse itself of heavy metal and toxic waste that builds up in the body. The Ionic Cleanse Detox Machine is a water foot bath that utilizes steel electrodes to cleanse, balance, and enhance bio-energy for a number of benefits.

According to, benefits of the ionic foot detox system include pain relief as well as improved sleep, digestion, skin suppleness and state of mind. The process also decreases swelling, reduces toxins and speeds up metabolism to reduce weight loss. 

At the start of the process, feet are immersed in the clear-water filled basin. The ionizing array is attached to an electrical power supply that delivers a low-level current. This current causes metals within the array to mix with the water and salt to generate both positively and negatively charged ions via the process of separating oxygen and hydrogen in the water. Between five and six minutes into the process, the water will begin to turn yellow, showing that detoxification is occurring through the kidney and bladder area. About 10 minutes into the process the water begins to turn an orange-brown color, indicating that metallic poisons are leaving through the joints and liver. Depending on age and level of chemical build up, the water could become murky roughly 18 to 20 minutes into the detoxification process. This indicates the body is releasing an accumulation of medication that has been taken over time.

The treatment begins to conclude 27 to 30 minutes after it starts. At this point, the water turns dark green, which means the elimination of poisons from the gall bladder are taking place.

The process of using the Ionic Cleanse Detox Machine allows individuals to actually see the cleansing process happen as the water interacts with the electric current.

Healthful Solutions offers the ionic foot bath at 45 S. Main St., Medford.
