The Ionic Detox system produces positive and negative ions in the foot bath water. It produces a low current, low voltage signal and sends it through the array submerged in the foot bath water. The current in the array creates ionization through a process known as electrolysis.
Electrolysis breaks down the H2O (water) molecule and produces a negative hydrogen ion (H-). These negative ions are then absorbed through the feet by osmosis. The foot serves as an excellent conduit for the whole body. The principles of reflexology outline how the feet are connected to all the vital organ systems and natural detoxification pathways.
Toxins that are stored in the body often fall into the bio molecule species of free radicals. A free radical is a molecule that has lost an electron making them extremely unstable and reactive. Free radicals can be extremely dangerous to biological systems because they rupture bonds in cells' bio molecules. If a free radical reacts with a bio molecule, it typically steals an electron from an atom and leaves the bio molecule missing an electron, thereby becoming a new free radical. That creates a chain reaction that proliferates free radicals, rupturing chromosomes and cell membranes. Recent studies suggest that several disease states including certain forms of cancer, may be attributable to free radicals.Foot Detox Intake Form
A certain amount of fat is required by the human body to provide insulation, cushioning, and energy, which is needed to perform many of its essential functions. But, excess fat is something you want to steer clear of. When your fat cells accumulate faster than they are burned, they start forming pockets of excess fat in your body. Eventually, it starts to stick together and becomes difficult to break apart.
Once the negative hydrogen ions are introduced to the body, they essentially act as an antioxidant. Antioxidants, like Vitamin C, lose electrons easily. It is this process that neutralizes free radicals. Negative hydrogen ions act as supercharged free radical scavengers. Once a free radical is neutralized, the body's natural detoxification process can easily eliminate it.
The ultimate goal of an ionic foot detox is too stimulate the body's own natural detoxification systems and create a positive cellular environment that will assist the body in detoxifying naturally.
