Ionic Detox Foot Bath

Ionic Foot Detox Benefits

Ionic detoxification is a great adjunct to any wellness program, especially weight loss and detox programs.  I have been using them personally and in my practice for the past 3 months and have experienced many of the below benefits.  Please contact me with any questions or to receive your complimentary session when booking a 1-hour Initial Consult or Tune-Up session.  I promise you will be amazed!!!  It’s a pretty gross experience to say the least but as I always say…”Better out than in!!!”  Read on…

In a 2009 survey, 126 users of ionic detoxification systems were asked what specific health benefits they or their clients received from using ionic detox foot bath systems.Their answers included: pain relief (42), including less joint stiffness, less headaches, less knee pain, less foot pain, less general muscle pain and more, increased energy (29), improved sleep (23), improved digestion (10), toxin reduction (9), decreased swelling (9), circulatory system improvement (9), reduced weight (8), skin improvements (8), emotional improvements (5), respiratory improvements and much more.

Ionic detox has been known to:

  • Remove toxins, free radicals and body waste products that can cause health problems (In an Aug. ’04 study by Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, there was a significant deposit of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic illnesses.)
  • In a 2008 study by Center for Research Strategies (crsllc.org), 31 participants underwent ionic detox two times per week for 12 weeks. The amount of aluminum and arsenic in their blood was measured before and after the 12 weeks. The average blood aluminum level decreased by 46% from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb. The average blood arsenic level decreased 24% from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb.
  • In a 2002 study by Doctor’s Data in St. Charles, IL, there was an average increase in toxic metals found in the foot basin from nine independent sessions. Here is a list of metals that increased in concentration: Copper: 905%, Aluminum 339%, Lead 233%, Iron 174%, Manganese 140%, Antimony 128%, Cadmium 119%
  • Raise pH levels. Approximately 95% of people experience a state of acidity 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 critters that lower body function and cause disease.
  • Inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus
  • Relieve pain and tension including headaches
  • Purify the blood and lymph
  • Increase peripheral circulation
  • Stimulate and balance the immune system
  • Enhance nutrient absorption
  • Reduce inflammation and unwanted fluid retention
  • Help clear up skin
  • Assist in weight loss
  • Slow down aging and improve body flexibility
  • Quicken recovery time from disease or injury
  • Increase oxygen in the body
  • Rejuvenate and energize your whole body
  • Improve sleep

pH Power Broth

pH Power Broth

 

Benefits of: Consuming 1 cup of warm pH Power Broth with your meals can assist in weight loss by decreasing your appetite and by helping to shift your body’s pH from acid to alkaline.  When your body is more alkaline it can release stored fat and excess water resulting in both weight loss and decreased body fat.  Other benefits include increased energy, clearer thinking, increased immunity, better bone health, and relief from acid reflux, nasal congestion, headaches, kidney stones, anxiety and cysts.

 

Ingredients: (use at least the first 9 ingredients if possible)

4 stalks celery cut into 2” pieces

2 large bok choy bulbs or 1 small green cabbage cut in 1/2

1/2 cup sea veggies (arame is best)

1 bunch Parsley

3 carrots cut into 2” pieces

4” piece of ginger root peeled and cut into 1” pieces

1 lemon – first zest and then cut in 1/2

2 Tbsp. Himalayan sea salt

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp. turmeric powder

Method:

All veggies, lemon, herbs and spices should be organic.  Put all ingredients in a large, non-aluminum pot and cover with pure filtered water.  Bring to a boil then simmer with cover on until broth has a rich flavor (approx. 2 – 3 hrs.).  Strain and discard ingredients.  Check seasoning and add more if necessary.  Drink hot or cold.  Broth will keep for about 3 days unless frozen.  If freezing, please use glass or ceramic containers.

Why Do We Need To Detox?

DETOXUnless we are living in a bubble, we are surrounded day in and day out by environmental toxins, both inside and outside our homes.  In addition, if we have slipped into poor eating and lifestyle habits, our toxic burden is further increased.  It is estimated that the average american ingests about a gallon of chemicals a year and that approximately 75% of weight issues are due, in part, to being overly toxic.  Toxins are stored in our fat cells and our bodies will hold onto that fat, as well as, water as a protective mechanism.  So not only do toxins make us sick –  they also make us fat!

 
So….Just how toxic are you anyway? Click here and find out…. 

 

I know what you are thinking…..”Detox…hmmm sounds like a good idea and I did score pretty high on that quiz you just made me take.  I have been really sluggish lately, my thinking has been fuzzier than ever and my digestion is not what it used to be.  My skin hasn’t been looking as clear or bright either and my eyes have puffy dark circles all of a sudden.  I can’t seem to concentrate on anything and my memory is totally shot.  Also – I’ve been getting these annoying headaches and my joints ache.  Worst of all, I can’t seem to lose weight for anything!  Damn I’m a hot mess!  I really DO need a good detox but….the idea of it makes me kind of nervous.  My friend went on one and she had to drink these really gross cleansing drinks and couldn’t eat real food for like a whole month!  She was in a really bad mood too and now nobody likes her anymore.  I don’t want to give up food and be in a really bad mood for a whole month and have no friends…. Ugh – this is sounding like a really bad idea.  I think I need some chocolate….and a nap”.
