Ionic Foot Detox

Today, we are exposed to the greatest toxic load in the history of our planet. Ongoing periodic cleansing is essential to maintain health. The IonCleanse® system, in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long-term wellness.

AMD is the gold standard in foot detox and a world above cheaper foreign-manufactured units.

How does it work: 

How does the ion cleanse foot detox work?

The array is placed in the water with the hands, feet, or other body parts. When turned on, the control unit delivers a clean, filtered current to the array, which does two things. First, it elicits a relaxation response in the body. Second, the current causes the array metals, in combination with the water and salt, to generate positively and negatively charged ions. These ions draw oppositely charged toxins from the relaxed body into the water.

 Ionization is a familiar process. However, the concept of using ionization in a foot bath, such as the IonCleanse® by AMD, is a relatively new idea. In nature, ions are generated by the movement of water molecules. Think of how good you feel while walking along a beach or near a waterfall. We are creating the same reaction with the IonCleanse® process, only magnified many times over. 

Colors and Particles in the Water 

Many colors and particles will appear in the water during IonCleanse® sessions. Color is produced even if there are no feet in the water. This is a result of the interaction between toxins and particles already in the water, any added salt, and the array metals. This regional color depends on the toxic and chemical impurities in the water of your geographical area. We have found that a client’s detoxification session will override the regional toxicity of the water. A session done with someone’s feet in the water will produce more particles and residues than one without. The IonCleanse® by AMD, through the electrolysis of water, creates ions in the water. Ions are charged particles that neutralize toxins, which are held in a charged form in the body. Ions “do not play favorites,” thus, they will react with and neutralize other charged particles, as well.

When there are no feet in the water, the ions neutralize what is in the foot bath. First is the water itself: average city water has between 300-500 chemicals in it. Second is the salt, which also has a charge. Third, is the array plate, which is made from stainless steel and copper. All of these elements will contribute to color change. From AMDs 18 years of experience, they estimate that the “junk in the tub” contributes to roughly 30% of the overall color change when feet are in the water. It accounts for 100% of the color change when feet are not present. See the side-by-side comparison:

We liken the ionic field to a huge magnet that attracts the oppositely charged particles (toxins) from the body, which are then released into the tub. Because each body releases these toxins according to its own priorities, we see different colors, textures, and even smells from one person to the next with the IonCleanse® by AMD. We see these differences time and again.

AMDs experience at a conference in Chicago is a good case in point. We had 7 machines running the entire time. They saw vastly different results (foot bath colors) from one person to the next. Results varied not only in the mixture and intensity of the colors but also in other ways—some had lots of mucus, bubbles, or foam, and others had less or none at all.  These different results came from different levels of toxicity and the body’s ability to release toxins at a particular time. 

As with any detoxification program, hydration and supplementation are helpful. Drink enough water during and after the IonCleanse sessions. We also recommend taking mineral supplements to further enhance the process. We do not have any brand-specific recommendations. Please refer to your practitioner for guidance.

What results should I expect?

Most people feel lighter on their feet, have more energy, clearer thinking, and reduced stress. If you feel good before a detox foot bath session, you’ll feel good afterward. People who feel the worst going into a session tend to notice the biggest changes. If there is a specific issue you are looking to address, most of the time you will notice changes within two months of consistent use.

There are certain people who should not use the IonCleanse by AMD:

Unless you are under a physician’s guidance, the following contraindications should be followed: 

• Wearers of a pacemaker, or any other battery-operated or electrical implant. 

• Pregnant or nursing women. 

• Those on heartbeat regulating medication and/or blood thinners. 

• Organ transplant recipients. 

• Those on medication, the absence of which would cause mental or physical impairment, such as psychotic episodes, seizures, etc. 5 

Furthermore, the following recommendations should be considered: 

• Many medications require that a blood level be maintained in order to be effective; for example, blood pressure medication. Do your IonCleanse session just before taking your medication so that you can maintain proper levels. 

• If you experience low blood sugar, eat before a session. 

• If you have had a substantial portion of your colon removed, start with reduced session times as one of your main channels of elimination has been compromised. • If you have non-electrical implants, such as titanium pins, you may find the current uncomfortable. In the event of severe discomfort, discontinue the session.
