At Bay Harbour Med Spa (located between Miami Beach, Sunny Isles and Aventura), we’re committed to an overall wellness program as part of our European spa treatments. One such treatment is the ionic foot bath detoxification therapy.

Why We Highly Recommend the Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification Therapy?

Eliminating toxins is the first step in giving the body a chance to heal itself. There are over 360 acupuncture points on the body with more than 60 on the soles of the feet. Acupuncture points and reflexology points reflect the organs and other areas of the body which make the feet ideal for detoxification. Today our toxic exposure is at an all time high and toxins are one of the primary causes of degenerative diseases, such as:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Kidney problems
  • Autism
  • Muscular dystrophy

Toxins originate from our foods that are sprayed with pesticides, drinking water has chlorine and fluoride, the air we breathe is polluted, cleaning supplies we use to clean and inadvertently breathe in the fumes or touch without gloves, soaps, shampoos, and detergents. All of the above are loaded with chemicals and many contain sodium laurel sulfate that is known to cause cancer.

There are many more toxins which cause our bodies to become toxic, such as:        "ionic foot bath detox color chart"

  • mercury fillings
  • lead
  • aluminum
  • vaccinations prescribed by physicians (mandatory or none)
  • household adhesives
  • paints
  • plastic containers used to heat up food in the microwave
  • tobacco
  • drugs

All of the above can contribute to health ailments/diseases which may include:

  • allegies
  • mental incapacitation
  • swelling
  • rashes
  • insomnia
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • pain

One EPA report we read stated that in 2002 there were over 24,379 facilities which released 4.7 billion pounds of toxins into the atmosphere. 72 million pounds were known as carcinogens. Depending on the amount of oxygen you inhale, it is possible that you’re exposed to anywhere from 3,000 to 8,000 gallons of air each day.

Toxins that enter the body turn to acid which leads to acidosis and disease. Symptoms of acidosis are divided into three (3) categories:

  1. Beginning symptoms: fatigue, headaches, bloating, acne, constipation, food allergies, panic attacks, slow circulation and joint pain.
  2. Intermediate symptoms: asthma, bronchitis, insomnia, psoriasis, fungus, depression, and cold sores.
  3. Advanced symptoms: cancer, fibromyalgia, weight gain, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, lupus, leukemia, heart disease and migraines.

How does the ionic foot bath detox therapy treatment work?     "ionic foot bath treatment"

It works through an ionization osmosis environment running negative ions through our body, pulling and attracting the positively charged impurities, toxins and heavy metals out through the feet into the saline charged solution in the bath. The energized ionized water runs through your body, bringing the body’s chi and meridians back into balance where one might feel energized and relaxed. The ion detox foot bath system ionizes the bath water with the units submersible water module. When your feet are immersed in the water during a 30-minute bath, the process sets up a type of osmosis condition which draws out toxins within the body. Impurities are pulled from the body, improving the body’s natural resilience. There is noticeable change in the water color from the time the process begins and when the process is complete. What you are actually seeing is the cellular waste and oxidation present in the water.

We hope this information gives you clear reasons on why this wellness detox treatment could be so good for you! If you don’t live in South Florida, please search out a med spa which is reputable and has experience in these types of therapeutic treatments.
