An ionic foot detox is one of the most popular and safest ways of detoxing your body of the harmful toxins that can accumulate. The bath cleanses and balances the bio-energy that is present in your feet and your body. It is a natural detox method that has the capability of enhancing your physical and mental energy while purging your body of all the toxins that are acquired as a result of environmental factors like pollution, radiation, and artificial chemicals.
How Does It Work?
For your ionic foot detox therapy, you will immerse your feet in a basin containing salt water. The electrodes present in the salt carry a small level of electric charge that purges the toxins. Your body’s pH levels become more alkaline instead of acidic as a small current is sent through the body to generate positively charged ions. The ions basically neutralize the negatively charged particles in your body and remove them through the pores in your feet. Each bath takes about 30 minutes, and the clear water in the basin will have changed color to black, brown, or orange.
An ionic foot detox reduces pain in several areas of your body, such as the joints, knees, feet, head, shoulders, wrists, and lower back. It is soothing for the muscles. The ionic foot detox bath is excellent for people who are suffering from arthritis, and it can complement your existing forms of treatment. It can also reduce the recovery time from injuries and surgeries if you come in for it on a regular basis.
Improvement of Mental Health and Bodily Functions
Numerous patients consistently report feeling emotionally lighter and more mentally secure immediately after and in the days following an ionic foot detox bath. As your body’s acidity levels go down, several other bodily functions improve positively.
With this reduction in acidity levels, your digestive system finds it easier to break down food and remove it from the body. It decreases the amount of flatulence you experience while simultaneously reducing constipation.
Complementary Treatment of Illnesses
Ionic foot detox is an excellent way to detox for people who are suffering from skin conditions, various types of cancers, fungal infections, yeast infections, and physical ailments that impair motor functions.
