A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When the water molecule loses a hydrogen atom, the remaining 0H molecule takes on a negative charge. When you walk along the beach, your body absorbs millions of these negatively charged ions, which alkalize the blood and tissue. Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products which tend to acidify the body.
According to Dr. Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, “acid wastes attack joints, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands. This causes minor to major dysfunction." In addition, Baroody maintains that, “avoiding disease and maintaining vitality as we age, requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body-which is virtually impossible to accomplish in our high-tech, high stress, toxic society, unless we can walk on the beach every day.”
Think back to how your body felt the last time you walked along the beach and felt the energy of the waves breaking near you. You were probably able to breathe deeper, your brain cleared, your body felt in tune with the Earth, at peace and rejuvenated. The ionization of trillions of water molecules crashing into the Earth caused positive reactions.
The Ionic Cleanse Detox Machine generates the same effect as a walk along the beach only more effectively, as the feet are placed in direct contact with ions manufactured in the foot bath. Simply put your feet in the water, turn on the machine and within seconds millions of ions enter your body immediately, beginning the neutralization of tissue acid wastes. It is a high-tech water detoxification system that facilitates the body’s ability to heal itself. It is a pleasure to use because of its simplicity and relaxing effect.
In layman’s terms, the foot bath is stimulating your body to detox. After the foot bath is over, your body will still be detoxing for the next 24 to 48 hours. Your urine may look darker, etc. It is advisable to drink more water during this period. This is why it is not recommended to do foot baths on a daily basis. The body needs time to detoxify and settle down before another foot bath is done.
